New set photos with Jessica Chastain and plot details for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Aug. 30, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

The Lethebridge Herald has some new set images from INTERSTELLAR, and it looks like they are from the same location as the pictures that were released last week featuring Matthew McConaughey. This time Jessica Chastain is the star of the show, however we also get a first look at John Lithgow and Topher Grace on the set of the highly anticipated film from director Christopher Nolan. The new plot information could be considered a spoiler to some people, so if you want to check out the images and not the new details for the film, do not scroll past the image of the band Korn.

Korn

OK, so why the hell did I use a picture of Korn? Because apparently corn plays a major role in the film. See what I did there? The Fort Macleod Gazette has an article about INTERSTELLAR filming in their town and has some new information about the film:

Set in the future, the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown.

The Fort Macleod Gazette also says the scene that was filmed involved a dust storm, which explains the surgical masks and (of course) the fans and sand in the images above. If true, I wonder how much social commentary about how we treat our planet will find its way into INTERSTELLAR. If so, I hope it isn't done in a heavy handed or preachy way. That shit can really ruin a film.

INTERSTELLAR also stars Anne Hathaway, Bill Irwin, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Michael Caine and Matt Damon (who just recently signed on for a small role) and it will be in theaters on November 7th, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: What do you think they'll find in the other dimensions in INTERSTELLAR? Aliens? Parallel or alternate universes?

Awepics pics, not-so-awesome plot

Now hold on to your horses before you thumbs down this, hear me out. I think the plot is a bit dull, however, I'm sure there will be more to it and Mr. Nolan would surprise us. I have faith.

Once again, awesome pics!

lame plot

Traveling to other dimensions looking for other planets to grow different crops in? This sounds about as thin as Signs. growing crops on the moon would be far more plausible. Traveling through a wormhole to other dimensions is just as lame as aliens that dissolve in water, travel to earth with no weapons or protective gear, and attempt to 'take over'. Sometimes I think Hollywood just assumes we're all stupid.

"dimension"...

You keep using that word, Hollywood. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I bet Damon is playing Batman in this film. So he and Ben can both play the role.

really?

To search for more places to plant a farm? Huh. Okaaaayyy. I would've expected something a little different...maybe traveling through this wormhole to explore, or simply to test out new technology, and this team's journey is highlighted, or something other than find new land to plant some crops in. Oh well, i'm guessing it'll turn out fine. In Nolan we trust.

I'm really looking forward to this flick. I really hope that the social comentary isn't real preachy. If I want a sermon, I'll go to church. Not the movies.

Looking forward to this.

Nolan is a great director and a wonderful person on set. Very professional and detail oriented. Looking forward to this and, I have to say it, I'm going to really miss his rendition of The Dark Knight, but the man has a lot of talent to expand into other works. Hoping this is good.

Plot reminds me of sci-fi film Silent running.look forward to this film even though the plot isn't that exciting that we expect from Nolan.

I have to agree I'm really hoping this film is not preachy at all in the climate change part. That would really hurt the film.

Otherwise looking good so far.

Awesome seeing the man at work. This sounds like a very good cast, the same way Inception and the Batman movies (barring Katie Holmes) were. I didn't expect that the plot would involve agriculture though. Let's see where Nolan takes this thread.

Haha

I thought when I saw the picture of Korn you were going to say that they were going to collaborate with Zimmer on the soundtrack. It was corny but I laughed. Chastain is so hot and I am happy she is going to be involved with a Nolan picture.
