Matthew McConaughey teases that Interstellar is Christopher Nolan's most epic and yet personal film

12.19.2013

When the mysterious teaser for INTERSTELLAR debuted over the weekend, many were intrigued by the narration discussing the history of human flight. To say the least, the trailer was cryptic and provided no new information as to what the actual plot of the movie is about. In typical Christopher Nolan fashion, we have been given parts of the puzzle and left to contemplate what it all means.

Not one to give away anything abut his first collaboration with Nolan, star Matthew McConaughey shared a little insight into what INTERSTELLAR represents and if the trailer was intentionally this mysterious.

“He sure as [heck] knows what he wants,” McConaughey told The Times. “There’s scope, major scope, which means a lot of things have to be coordinated. But at the same time, when you’re shooting it moves incredibly quickly.”

The screenplay for INTERSTELLAR is a combination of an idea that was previously going to be directed by Steven Spielberg that Nolan meshed with a script already written by his brother Jonathan Nolan. That screenplay involved space travel and alternate dimensions. It remains to be seen how much of that draft is in what Nolan has put to screen, but I would say epic would be an understatement.

But, the story of human perseverance and defying the odds at any cost also holds a very personal place for Nolan, according to McConaughey. Christopher Nolan's entire career has been about directing unconventional films and shirking advancing technologies like 3D or digital cameras. There are a lot of Nolan haters out there, but you have to admire the man's dedication to his craft.

INTERSTELLAR stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, Jessica Chastain, John Lithgow, Mackenzie Foy, and Michael Caine. It hits theaters on November 7, 2014.

This movie will probably rule and Nolan is great, but this is fluff. Overcoming odds? Personal to Nolan? Give me a break...

I've been trying not to say this...

but after seeing the still on that video so many times it looks like Matthew just got a forced facial.

Edit: Before you thumbs down, tell me I'm completely wrong LOL
I'm sure the movie will still be one of my all time favorites.

I've never understood

these "Nolan Haters". I mean, what's the point of these people? "I disliked a detail about a movie millions of people loved, so obviously, that guy should stop making movies"? I mean, seriously?

Seeing THE DARK KNIGHT for the first time in IMAX still tops seeing GRAVITY in IMAX. It was that amazing.

Nolan shirks some technological advances, but he's the filmmaker who first made a fictional film using IMAX cameras and that changed blockbuster filmmaking for the forseeable future.
Also, what do you bet McConaughey actually said "fuck" where is says [heck] in The Times quote? Doubt they'd censor "hell"...
