Earth's future has been riddled by disasters, famines, and droughts. There is only one way to ensure mankind's survival: Interstellar travel. A newly discovered wormhole in the far reaches of our solar system allows a team of astronauts to go where no man has gone before, a planet that may have the right environment to sustain human life.Written by
In Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), an engineer stumbles across a top-secret government operation by following a mysterious message. The government rendezvouses with aliens when they send map coordinates for humans to follow. In this movie, Matthew McConaughey plays an engineer who receives map coordinates from a mysterious source and follows them to a top-secret government operation. Also, in both movies, stumbling upon this operation leads directly to him being invited to take part in a space flight. Both movies featured a scene of the main character in his truck fumbling with maps. Appropriately, Steven Spielberg was the one who originally developed this project. See more »

Look, I'm glad you're excited about gravity, bud, but you're not getting anymore answers until I get assurances.

Yeah. Like that we're getting out of here. And I don't mean in the trunk of some car.

The 70mm IMAX version is two minutes shorter than the regular 70mm, Digital IMAX, 35mm, and digital projection versions. This is because the end credits are played in an abbreviated slide-show form (rather than scrolling from bottom to top), due to the size capacity of the IMAX platters, which can hold a maximum of 167 minutes of film.

'Interstellar' was incredible. The visuals, the score, the acting, were all amazing. The plot is definitely one of the most original I've seen in a while. Most of the critic reviews have said that some bits are a little too unbelievable, but I have to disagree. Yes, there were some parts that were definitely in the "fi" part of sci-fi. But the thing is, 'Interstellar' deals with concepts that we know very little about. We have no idea what the 4th or 5th dimension is like, or what it would be like to go through a wormhole or a black hole. I don't think it's fair to call something unbelievable, when we have absolutely no idea what WOULD be believable in those circumstances. Either way, excellent writing from the Nolan brothers. The visuals were outstanding, and will no doubt be nominated for an Oscar. The performances were excellent, though nothing Oscar worthy, as is the case with most of Nolan's films ('The Dark Knight' being the obvious exception). Hans Zimmer's score was amazing and blended perfectly with the film. All in all, 'Interstellar' is an excellent movie, which I personally think is Nolan's most beautiful film to date.
