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