Doctor Strange

For a while there, it looked like the Doctor Strange casting rumors were finally coming to a rest. Then Joaquin Phoenix decided he didn’t want to do the movie after all. That sent Marvel back to square one, and the rest of us gossiping and speculating all over again about who might get the part.

A couple weeks ago, we got word Ethan Hawke was up for the role, and yesterday we heard Ewan McGregor was being looked at as well. Now a new report reveals several more names on the shortlist: Matthew McConaughey, Jake Gyllenhaal, Oscar Isaac, and Jared Leto (again). Hit the jump for all the latest Doctor Strange shortlist.

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 TV spots

In addition to being one of the most highly-anticipated movies of late 2014, Interstellar is also one of the most mysterious. The Christopher Nolan-directed sci-fi adventure hasn’t played any festivals or otherwise allowed for any early reviews, and even the marketing campaign has been careful not to give away too much.

And naturally, all of that secrecy just makes us more curious about the movie. For now, we’ll take what we can get. Today, that means four new TV spots which reveal a bit more Interstellar footage and clarify some of the plot details. Watch the Interstellar TV spots after the jump.

Interstellar images

There are only about three months left in 2014 at this point, but those three months look to be absolutely jam-packed with exciting new movies. One we’re particularly looking forward to is Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar, which shoots Matthew McConaughey into outer space in a last, desperate attempt to save humanity.

As Nolan himself points out, that makes it “almost a mirror image of Inception. It expands out in the way Inception contracts inwards.” Read more comments from Nolan and his cast, and see new Interstellar images of McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Jessica Chastain, and David Gyasi after the jump.

Interstellar

Great directors can get their actors to go to the ends of the Earth for them. In Interstellar, Christopher Nolan inspires his to go beyond.

Well — not literally, since we assume the film was still shot on Earth. But the film definitely sends them off-planet. And so does the new Interstellar ad, which shows star Matthew McConaughey in a strange alien landscape. Hit the jump to see the new Interstellar poster.

Update: We’ve now got two new Interstellar posters. One shows a vision dramatically different from the ice planet image. We’ll assume it isn’t a spoiler, given the fact that the shot is front and center on a new poster.

mcconaughey magic mike xxl

We were hopeful after Channing Tatum said the entire Magic Mike cast would return for Magic Mike XXL, but it’s time for a little letdown. Matthew McConaughey is otherwise occupied, and isn’t taking part in the sequel. Not merely for that reason, director Greg Jacobs, a long-time associate of Steven Soderbergh, says this sequel will be quite different, for reasons he only begins to explain. Read More »

Interstellar IMAX TV spot

It almost seems a shame to post the new Interstellar IMAX TV spot here at /Film, because this is so obviously the kind of film that begs to be seen on the biggest screen possible. On the other hand, though, if sharing a dinky YouTube preview is what it takes to get people to see the full movie in a proper IMAX theater, then the net effect of that will be good.

Besides, we admit, it’s just really hard to resist taking a peek at Christopher Nolan‘s latest stunner. Watch the Interstellar IMAX TV spot after the jump.
