This is the time of year when we start to see studios release more award bait films. Gone Girl, Foxcatcher, Rosewater, and Men, Women, and Children are just some of the films already eyeing Oscar gold. And while those films are what you would typically see on an awards’ ballot, Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is one you wouldn’t normally see.
Now with the film just a few more weeks away from release, Nolan and the cast are talking more about the highly anticipated film. Hit the jump to see some of the comments from Nolan and the cast, and to see six new images.
Nolan on the nostalgic tone of the film:
“Itâ€™s a very classically constructed movie, but the freshness of the narrative elements really enhance it. I liken it to the blockbusters I grew up with as a kid, family films in the best sense: edgy, incisive, challenging.”
The director also likens the film to his other blockbuster hit, Inception:
“Itâ€™s almost a mirror image of ‘Inception.’ It expands out in the way ‘Inception’ contracts inwards.”
Interstellar looks to be Nolan’s most emotional film to date, and it is probably his most ambitious, has Matthew McConaughey will reveal:
“This is the grandest adventure I think any of us will ever see on film… This is the biggest film I’ve ever been a part of. This is one of the biggest films anyone’s ever been a part of.”
But the film isn’t just a cut and dry science-based film, there is more too it than that according to Anne Hathaway:
“I am so excited for the world to receive this film, because there’s going to be a new conversation I believe will happen because of it. It’s not a dry, science-based film. It has a pulse. It’s got blood in its veins.”
Nolan’s films tend to be a bit more on the emotionally distant side, so Interstellar may just be his emotionally engaging, at least that is what the trailers tell us. And if turns out to be as emotional as marketing tells us, Nolan would be venturing into exciting new territories.
Interstellar opens in theaters on November 7.
