Like so many major films released these days, ‘Interstellar’ has a comic book tie-in. But unlike most comic book tie-ins, this one is actually written by the original film’s director and is premiering online. And yes, you can read the whole thing right now, free of charge. We’re going to jump straight into spoilers right at the end of this sentence, so if you haven’t had a chance to see Christopher Nolan‘s science fiction adventure yet, you may want to consider turning around.

‘SNL’ and Woody Harrelson Take on ‘True Detective’ Season 2 Casting Rumors

EDIT
by Jacob Hall 7 days ago
With Woody Harrelson guest-hosting ‘SNL,’ it was inevitable that the show would break out the ‘True Detective’ jokes at some point. After all, few modern shows have grabbed pop culture by the collective lapels and shaken them so much quite like this HBO series, which saw Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey playing cops investigating a freaky, ritualistic murder. Since the second season of the show will feature a brand new cast and storyline, Weekend Update invited Harrelson and McConaughey to chat about their experience filming season one and to offer advice for everyone joining the show for season two.

What "What [Movie X] Gets Wrong About [Thing Y]" Reviews Get Wrong About Art

In the last couple years “What [Movie X] Gets Wrong About [Thing Y]” pieces have become one of the most common types of articles in all of online film writingdom. Their popularity is not hard to explain. Dopes like me see a movie like ‘Interstellar,’ filled with incomprehensible conversations about astrophysics, and they’re curious just how fast and loose the filmmakers played with the truth. The problem comes when authors take their nitpicks one step further into the realm of criticism; when “What X Gets Wrong About Y” becomes “What X Gets Wrong About Y—And Why That Ruins The Movie.”

First of all, if you haven’t seen ‘Interstellar,’ well, this is your one and only warning that major spoilers lie ahead. We good? Let’s continue. About three-fourths of the way through ‘Interstellar' -- a movie I mostly think is pretty good -- we finally meet a character that we’ve been hearing about for the entire movie, Dr. Mann.

Jimmy Fallon is Somehow Better at Throwing Footballs Than Matthew McConaughey

Is there anything Matthew McConaughey can't do? Or, more precisely, is there anything that he can't do excellently? Turns out, the Oscar winner just might have a weak spot, and although it's not a big one, it's one that 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon gleefully exploited for his own edification on last night's show.

Watch Jim Carrey Attempt His Matthew McConaughey Impression Live

Jim Carrey has plenty of trademark characters to trot out -- Ace Ventura, the Cable Guy, Fire Marshall Bill, the Riddler (wait, scratch that one) -- but the funny man seems to be quite recently endeared to a new, highly specific one: fellow actor Matthew McConaughey in his Lincoln commercials. Carrey debuted his take on the admittedly overly dreamy commercials during last week's 'Saturday Night Live,' but he's not done with it just yet.

'Interstellar' Review: Christopher Nolan's Absurd Reality

Deep, deep into the 169 minute running time of ‘Interstellar’ is a scene in which astronaut pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) must dock a spaceship with another, larger, out of control spinning space ship. The solution is to spin the smaller ship at the same speed, so that the effect makes it looks like both crafts aren’t spinning at all. So, by spinning everything out of control, it manipulates the situation into looking normal. This is also an apt description of the style of ‘Interstellar’’s director, Christopher Nolan.

'SNL' and Jim Carrey Take on Those Matthew McConaughey Car Commercials

EDIT

Yeah it is a little strange that a newly minted Oscar winner like Matthew McConaughey would be caught dead making television commercials for Lincoln cars. However, it did lead to a series of fake 'SNL' commercials featuring guest host Jim Carrey playing the 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'True Detective' star, so who are we to complain?

One of our most highly-anticipated films of what remains of this year is, of course, Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar,' the sci-fi drama which promises to be just as touching as it is epic, if those trailers we've been seeing are any indication. Crying Matthew McConaughey gets us every time. And today we have some new photos from in front of and behind the scenes to help you get a little more intimate with the cast of the upcoming film.

For a long time, Marvel had their eye on Joaquin Phoenix to star in 'Doctor Strange.' In fact, he was far enough along in his negotiations that Marvel hoped to bring him out on stage at Comic-Con to introduce him to the crowd. Phoenix, in case you haven't noticed, is mercurial and negotiations stalled. And, then they stalled some more. And, then finally Marvel decided to move on completely. Now, here we are back at square one as Marvel has a completely new shortlist of actors to star in their next superhero film. We previously told you about Ewan McGregor, but who else does Marvel have their eye on?
