The first 'Interstellar' trailer attached itself to screenings of 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,' giving audiences their first teaser-y look at Christopher Nolan's post-'The Dark Knight Rises' directorial effort. As the film preps to take moviegoers into the farthest reaches of space, will it be the film to beat come next year? Watch the first trailer and decide for yourself.
'Transcendence,' the directorial debut of Wally Pfister, has been shrouded in mystery since production began with stars Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall and Morgan Freeman. But as we enter the new year, Warner Bros. has come to release a detailed story synopsis for this latest sci-fi film, accompanied by the first-look photos of Depp and his co-stars.
The cast for Christopher Nolan's upcoming science fiction adventure 'Interstellar' was already quite stellar (yes yes, pun intended), but now they've gone and added Matt Damon to the mix. Everyone's favorite baby-faced action star (fresh off his action hero work in 'Elysium') will have what is being described as a small role in the film, but you know the old saying that we're just making up right now: a little bit of Matt Damon goes a long way.
As with all Christopher Nolan projects, there is a veil of secrecy surrounding 'Transcendence,' the upcoming sci-fi film starring Johnny Depp. Produced by Nolan and directed by Wally Pfister (Director of Photography on the 'Dark Knight' films), 'Transcendence' was designed to be a complex sci-fi film, not unlike 'Inception,' but to date, we haven't had much (if any) official confirmations on the film's plot.
Today, we got our hands on the official 'Transcendence' plot synopsis and it sheds some light on this mysterious project.
It was just a few weeks ago that Sam Mendes officially announced he wouldn't return to direct 'Bond 24' (what's more, he said the mere thought of returning to direct another James Bond film made him "physically ill") but producers aren't wasting any time finding a replacement. But how do you top 'Skyfall' - the biggest Bond film of all-time and a movie that made over $1 billion? You hire 'The Dark Knight' director Christopher Nolan.
Let's face it: the question was never "Will Michael Caine join the cast of 'Interstellar?'", it was "When will we hear about Michael Caine joining the cast of 'Interstellar?'" The answer is right now. The legendary actor has officially signed on to join the mysterious science fiction film and it will mark the sixth time he's worked with director Christopher Nolan.
Poor 'Justice League.' It just can't catch a break. When news broke that Warner Bros. wanted their own version of Marvel's 'The Avengers' to hit the big screen, fans of the DC universe were in hysterics, but the project has been seesawing back and forth between "Yah, we will make it" and "Nah, it's dead." Now, the biggest report we've heard so far, referring of course to Christopher Nolan's attachment, has been debunked by WB themselves.
Well, this is quite the career rebound. Matthew McConaughey, after a couple of years of solid character work -- and a lot of stolen scenes -- is now back in the big leagues as it appears Christopher Nolan wants him to be the lead in his next film 'Interstellar.' Not bad for an almost wash-out, yeah?
