So, which are we most looking forward to seeing?
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?

It's like 'Stand By Me' for a new generation.
This is Matthew McConaughey. We know, right? McConaughey - frequently seen looking quite buff running on the beach - lost 40 pounds to play a man suffering from AIDS for the upcoming indie film 'The Dallas Buyer's Club' and looks almost unrecognizable while filming a scene on the New Orleans set.
