It’s a Matthew McConaughey weekend as Interstellar hits theaters, but the actor isn’t resting on his latest work with Christopher Nolan. Today an announcement went out detailing plans that could team the actor with director Gary Ross. The project is a Civil War-era story called Free State Of Jones, in which McConaughey would play a Mississippi man from Jones County who secedes from the Confederacy to start his own state — the Free State of Jones.

We’re inching closer and closer to seeing Interstellar. Christopher Nolan‘s latest film, about a space journey undertaken to save the Earth, hits theaters with film-projection capabilities on November 5 and all the others November 7. I think most of us have gotten to the point where we’ve gone dark on the movie, preferring to experience the whole thing in the theater. And with a Christopher Nolan movie, that’s pretty easy. There really isn’t a lot of information or images out there.
However, some new stuff from both columns A and B have hit the net today. On the information side, we’ve learned that the near-three-hour film has more than an hour of IMAX footage. That’s a jump up from Nolan’s last film, The Dark Knight Rises. On the image side, eight new images have been released thanks to an Entertainment Weekly cover story. Read more about the Interstellar IMAX footage and check out the new images and commercials below. Read More »

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 »
