Interstellar McConaughey Nolan

There’s no question that Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is fictional, but how fictional is it? That’s been one of the points of debate surrounding the sci-fi epic, with people like astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson weighing on the plausibility of its science.

For his part, though, Nolan himself doesn’t seem at all bothered by the criticism. He says he’s “fine” with his films being held to “a weirdly high standard,” and points out the obvious fact that “much of it is speculation.” Hit the jump to Nolan’s comments on the science of Interstellar.

Jonathan Nolan

A couple weeks back I got a chance to talk to Jonathan Nolan, the brother of filmmaker Christopher Nolan and co-screenwriter of Interstellar. Jonah started developing Interstellar as a project for Steven Spielberg to direct, before getting sucked into the television world showrunning Person Of Interest for Bad Robot. Jonathan has also been making the transition into directing, helming the pilot of the HBO/Bad Robot television adaptation of Michael Crichton’s Westworld (which we talk about briefly). Read all this and more in our Jonathan Nolan interstellar interview, after the jump.

Here’s what will likely be the final Interstellar trailer, via a website that offers audiences a chance to explore space along with the characters. This trailer also confirms the IMAX release of the film on November 5, with that lovely “In 70mm IMAX film, 70mm film and 35mm film” tag. Watch the final Interstellar trailer below.

UPDATE: We’ve added a new featurette about the science of Interstellar according to Kip Thorne.

interstellar game app

Paramount Pictures has released an app to promote Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar:

The app takes players on a journey through solar systems designed by players, featuring realistic physics conceptualized by Kip Thorne, the film’s scientific advisor and noted theoretical physicist. Players create their own unique solar system with planets, moons, asteroids and more, and travel through other player-created systems in the Endurance, the ship from the film. See how far you can pilot the Endurance without running out of fuel or losing time relative to Earth. Sling-shot through solar systems using real-world physics and gravitational forces. Use wormholes to jump to new systems and survive the ultimate challenge of traveling past a black hole.

Sounds cool right? Find out more about the new Interstellar game app, after the jump.
