Hot off the Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan finally lifts the veil on his latest project – Interstellar, a (seemingly) touching tale of the first people to travel through a wormhole.
As the headline says, I felt a powerful Roddenberry-esque vibe during the VO – more than either of the two recent Trek films. The idea of pushing boundaries, of never being satisfied with what we’ve accomplished is such a Trek mindset that it makes my heart skip a beat. Hell, “to make the unknown… known” is essentially “To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before 2K13.”
It’s a theme touched upon in several episodes of Trek, but also a tad in the First Contact movie and definitely in the original Motion Picture; just expect a sllllowwwwww journey into the unknown in the latter.
The films stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and of course Michael Cain. It’s also a weird joint venture between Paramount and Warner Bros that includes all kinds of side deals and distribution rights. Can you believe Warner (allegedly) gave up some juice for both Friday the 13th and a future South Park movie just to be involved with Interstellar?
But yeah – exciting to see Nolan’s next venture is yet another intense, thought-provoking adventure. Can’t wait!
