Check out the new extended TV spot for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

08.26.2014

Another summer movie season is wrapping up and while we feel it could have gone a little better, there's still some huge films set to be released before the year's end. The Hunger Games finale is right around the corner (the first part, anyway), Ridley Scott's EXODUS looks to deliver the epic, and Peter Jackson will finally be closing his overlong Hobbit trilogy as well. Not to get lost in the shuffle, Christopher Nolan will deliver his latest opus, INTERSTELLAR, in November. While it's still 2 months away, the latest extended TV spot as hit for your viewing pleasure.

Personally, I find Nolan to be a very hit-or-miss filmmaker. However, despite the quality of his films, he knows how to craft a spectacle. He makes movies for the theater and there's something I really admire about that. For those of you who have seen one of his last couple flicks in a real IMAX theater (none of that "faux-max" shit), you know what I mean. Come this November, I can't wait to be launched into space.

INTERSTELLAR will be released on November 7, 2014.

Loving everything about this

The practical effects and sets, the realistic looking gadgets, the realistic future setting, the supposed real physics of relativity and quantum mechanics being utilized under Kip Thorne's supervision, the raw emotional acting, the inevitably awesome score from zimmer, the cast, IMAX film, etc.. everything just seems perfect here. I can't fucking wait.

This still looks freakin' amazing

I've liked everything I've seen from Christopher Nolan, from MEMENTO through the BATMAN trilogy and INCEPTION. This looks like another win for the director.

Why I still get excited for Nolan's films. Can't wait to see Interstellar!

Nolan is one of the few BIG Hollywood directors who understands and still crafts classic cinema with a modern approach that is not "over the top". No 3D, CGI only where it needs to be, the story and the characters are central not the action, beautifully captured cinema scope images (little to no shaky camera, as well as quick camera edits), very well written screenplays, high energy imagination with great invention. I love movies where the existence of mankind hangs in the dangerous journey of

No 3D, CGI only where it needs to be, the story and the characters are central not the action, beautifully captured cinema scope images (little to no shaky camera, as well as quick camera edits), very well written screenplays, high energy imagination with great invention. I love movies where the existence of mankind hangs in the dangerous journey of a chosen few, there is little hope, and this is our only chance to survive.
Unlike the days when people would flock to M. Night Shyamalan's to see what new surprise ending twist he would do. Nolan just surprises us with his imagination and storytelling.

We'll see bow divisive this movie will be...

I'm gonna check it out. But can't help that it feels like Contact, but Matthew McConaughey in Jodie Foster's role. That's just me though.

Movie looks grand in every way and the scope looks huge as well. And as great as his Dark Knight trilogy was, I still find his other non comic book films to be better overall. Memento, and Inception are still my favorite films of his with Batman Begins rounding out the top three.

I'm already as hyped for this film as I could possibly be, so I'm skipping out on any more trailers, TV spots, clips, etc. It's a Nolan-helmed space exploration film, with Matthew McConaughey in the lead, it's utterly without any trace of cynicism and seems to actually be optimistic about humanity's future (a nice change of pace from all the grimdark, cynical, pessimistic movies out lately), all centered around the relationship between a parent and his daughter. Seriously, I can't see how

Still not interested in seeing this. It looks pretty boring in my opinion.

I like Memento, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight, but everything else by him I'm not a fan of.

i dont think you understand what 'least favorite' means. its not what one do you dislike. if you have a favorite then you have a least favorite too. its ranking, you can still love your least favorite. its just you would love the others more.

Really wish this was in 3D, but Christopher Nolan is adamantly against that format.

Gravity made incredible use of 3D and was a very immersive experience. Seeing as this film is set in space as well, it could feel similarly enveloping.

After Gravity an astronaut movie is kind of tough sell for me because that set the bar insanely high. But it's Nolan so I'll see it regardless

Gravity is a completely different movie, wasn't sci-fi and didn't really take place in space either, they were barely hovering above the atmosphere. You can't really call Interstellar an astronaut movie, it's about wormholes, time travel, space travel, quantum mechanics, global warming, etc.. It's much more ambitious in scope and scale.

Gravity was a great tech demo.

"Personally, I find Nolan to be a very hit-or-miss filmmaker."

Still hung up on TDKR, huh?

Just to clarify, one completely average movie doesn't make you "hit or miss." You fanboys sure love the dramatics.

Just to clarify, he didn't say which or how many of his films he disliked. Nolan isn't the second coming, calm down.

While it's probably hyperbolic to jump to the conclusion that "hit or miss" automatically equals "enraged fanboy who was jilted by The Dark Knight Rises", I would agree that the phrase "hit or miss" is a pretty unnecessarily harsh term to use for Nolan. That implies that he's 50/50, that his movies could either be really good or really bad, that's he's simply average...and that's totally not the case at all, IMO. He's phenomenal, and he's proved it over and over again with Memento, The

@Kill Billionair: If we're going to hide behind the "opinions" card, then I can answer that with how I said, and I quote, "That implies that he's 50/50, that his movies could either be really good or really bad, that's he's simply average...and that's totally not the case at all, IMO." Key word being, "IMO".

Look, at the end of the day, it's a given that EVERYTHING is someone's opinion. So why get hung up over that? Just because someone says the word "personally", doesn't mean that they're

Look, at the end of the day, it's a given that EVERYTHING is someone's opinion. So why get hung up over that? Just because someone says the word "personally", doesn't mean that they're suddenly above any and all reproach. Instead of stopping at that and shutting down all debate simply because it's an opinion, maybe we can intelligently approach those opinions and actually talk about whether or not they're coming from a place of validity, backed up by evidence? In this case, the evidence says that Nolan has PLENTY of high-quality films under his belt. Which renders Sean's opinion that Nolan is "hit or miss" as unsubstantiated.

"That implies that he's 50/50..." No, it doesn't. It implies that HE finds Nolan's work 50/50, not the rest of the world all of a sudden. He is not a magician he didn't speak for anyone but himself.

"Which renders Sean's opinion that Nolan is "hit-and-miss" as unsubstantiated."

Jesus Christ, why are you even on a site like this at all, then? What's the point in commenting? You apparently don't like encouraging discussion or debates, which is kind of the point of comment sections...it seems like you think everyone should just make their own opinions and then sit in a circle and sing "Kumbaya" and all get along and never disagree with anyone and everything will be great.

I don't know about you, but I actually enjoy talking about movies, other people's opinions on movies, and actively debating and discussing what I agree with and don't agree with. You, on the other hand, apparently think ALL opinions are equal no matter what. Has it ever occurred to you that some people's opinions might be made out of ignorance? Or misguided ideas? Or just plain incorrect facts?

If you want to go down the rabbit hole of how ALL opinions are sacred and untouchable and not up for debate, well it's MY opinion that Sean's view of Nolan is wildly out of line and hyperbolic, and that your extremely weird mindset it destructive to any and all discussion. How dare you disagree with me, right? According to you, there IS no right or wrong. You just think A, I think B. End of story. So what the hell have we even been talking about in the first place here, right?

Yeah....if you don't mind, I'll continue to disregard your odd mentality that opinions are some kind of fail-safe and shield to hide behind, and I'll continue to actually promote discussions of movies and what people think of them. Because no, there actually ARE right and wrong opinions sometimes. There actually are opinions that have more weight behind them than others. This kind of mindset is such a pet peeve of mine.
