Paramount brought two Comic Con newbies to Hall H today: Matthew McConaughey and Christopher Nolan, and the pair also brought along a new trailer for their upcoming film Interstellar. The film explores an Earth which has been decimated by climate change, and from which a small group adventures out into the universe, in search of answers to our problems.
The elements were all introduced in stages: the moderator, Entertainment Weekly editor Matt Bean, brought McConaughey out. The actor talked about his first conversations with Nolan, and described his own character before shying away from telling more about the movie. He introduced the director, who spoke for a few minutes and answered questions from the moderator. Finally, Nolan introduced the new trailer for the film. (Read about that here.) Below, you’ll find the meat of the conversation between the three men.

Not to get your hopes up too much, but the very positive reception for True Detective has changed the mind of one of its stars with respect to the idea of coming back. Matthew McConaughey once said he was attracted to True Detective because it was a “one and done” series. And we know that the second season will feature a trio of new leads, with the show built around new characters. But now McConaughey says he would be “open” to doing more. Read More »
The first full trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is now online. And it is excellent.
Starring Matthew McConaughey, the film shows us a world where food is becoming scarce. So a small group of explorers heads to the heavens in an attempt to solve mankind’s ultimate problem. Co-stars include Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck and Michael Caine, among others.
This new Interstellar trailer suggests a surprisingly emotional story of a father’s love for his daughter, and the incredible lengths he’ll go to to save her. Then, we actually get to see lots of Nolan’s vision of space, which looks like a lyrical, beautiful place.
Check out the new Interstellar trailer below. Read More »
Christopher Nolan spoke at CinemaCon Wednesday, and when Christopher Nolan talks people listen.

It’ll be released November 7, 2014.

True Detective is over, and no matter what you thought of the finale there’s a good chance you want more. The show’s grim atmosphere and stark philosophical musings are addictive, and the rhythms of Nic Pizzolatto‘s dialogue stick in the back of the brain. Trouble is, we don’t know when the second season will premiere, and no matter the air date, the next episodes won’t continue the story of Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rustin Cohle (Matthew McConaughey). So how about a True Detective deleted scene from the first season to help ease off that addiction?
This scene is interesting, too, because it is not some side note from the murder investigation that provided the spine for the first season. Rather this is a new character note, which is really where the show excelled. Below, you’ll see a sour note in the relationship between Cohle and his girlfriend Laurie (Elizabeth Reaser). You knew this was coming as soon as we first saw them together. Bide the time in the wait for blu and season 2 with the clip, below. Read More »
We’ve known that the first season of True Detective would mostly be a stand-alone thing, with a second season following more or less in name (and possibly theme) only. If and when True Detective returns, it will be with a new story, and a new cast. And so the thick “True Detective Season Two” meme has seen hundreds of concepts, both serious and joking, for cast team-ups that could carry the second season.
But series creator Nic Pizzolatto raised some hopes last week in an interview where he said “It would be great if we could use some of the same actors, like a reparatory company. It would be different characters, different setting. That’s part of the fun of the anthology.”
So might we see Hart (Woody Harrelson) or Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) return in some capacity for the second season? Fresh off his first Oscar win, McConaughey at least says he’s out. Read More »
There’s not a letter or decimal point missing in that headline. Makeup artist Robin Mathews, who is nominated for an Oscar for her work on Dallas Buyer’s Club, achieved the film’s impressive look on a budget of only $250 — that’s two hundred and fifty bucks for the whole thing, not just one scene or character. The other side of that budget is something more difficult to quantify; it’s a balance of time and effort, of experimentation and nights and weekends spent playing with technique rather than resting.
Mathews gives some details about the work below. Read More »
