Christopher Nolan and IMAX have become almost synonymous. The director uses the large format like no one else, shooting several of his films with IMAX film cameras to make them feel simultaneously bigger and more intimate. He’s the only director shooting true IMAX who uses it both for his big action scenes and emotional close-ups. No one pushes the IMAX format like Mr. Nolan.
Now he’s pushing it even further. A member of Nolan’s VFX team tweeted (then removed) an image of a Learjet with an IMAX camera installed in the nose. It’s being used to capture photography for Interstellar, Nolan’s 2014 space film starring Matthew McConaughey. Check it out below. Read More »

We know that Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar features characters that journey to and/or through a wormhole in space, but that’s (forgive the pun) a pretty nebulous description. There are many different ways in which that basic plot could end up articulated on screen, and waiting to see how it all plays out is obviously part of the pleasure.
But a new report about the film shooting in Florida seems to give up some info that hadn’t previously been reported. Because we don’t know how much of this info will be in the first trailer or two, you should consider the info potentially spoilerish. That said, the release of info for films like this is very tightly managed by the unit publicist, and one would assume that anything ending up in a newspaper report had been cleared. Fair warning.

Legendary’s exit from under the Warner Bros. umbrella is one of those insider Hollywood business deals that made waves in studio boardrooms, but not anywhere else. Their latest deal is kind of the same thing – it won’t affect fans at all – but it’s still a very interesting and kind of awesome turn of events.
Warner Bros. and Paramount are co-financing Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which just started filming. Warner Bros. and Legendary teamed up on Man of Steel, which opened earlier this summer. Nolan has a great relationship with both companies and, in the deal to leave Warner Bros., Legendary negotiated a trade. They gave up their stake in the Man of Steel sequel, rumored to be called Batman vs. Superman, to keep their name on Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. Read More »
Christopher Nolan is back behind the camera. The director of the Dark Knight Trilogy has just begun production on Interstellar, a sci-fi film starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain, among others. Set for release in IMAX on November 7, 2014, the film is about “the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.”
That description comes from a new press release acknowledging the start of production, which includes a full cast and crew rundown. Check it out below. Read More »
Briefly: Christopher Nolan has brought a couple more actors into his already impressive cast for the sci-fi adventure Interstellar.

The cast also includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, Michael Caine, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Bill Irwin and Timothee Chalamet.
This is where I recap the other spare details we know about the film, which depicts “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest borders of our scientific understanding,” and features “explorers [who] travel through a wormhole.” Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan scripted the current draft. Composer Hans Zimmer and cinematographer Hoyte Van Hotyema are also working on the picture.
