Mysterious Christopher Nolan Film Gets A 2017 Release Date

Have you been dying to know what Christopher Nolan plans to do after his 2014 epic science fiction film ‘Interstellar‘? You’re not alone. We have also been wondering what his next film will be, and even though we still don’t have a what, at least we now have a when.

Warner Bros. announced they will release an untitled Christopher Nolan film in 2017. July 21, 2017 to be exact. They have all the rights to this new project, but refuse to give any details at this time. The summer release date tells us that this will be another blockbuster. They clearly expect this movie to be huge.

Why? Because July 2017 is going to be filled with some big movie releases. You got Pitch Perfect 3, Luc Besson‘s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, an untitled animation project from 20th Century Fox, War Of The Planet Of The Apes, and the huge Spider-Man reboot is scheduled to end the month on July 28, which means Nolan’s film will have a hard time getting the number one spot two weekends in a row.

So yeah, basically we know nothing right now, but it does seem pretty clear that Nolan has something huge planned. Just don’t expect to hear about it anytime soon. We all know how secretive Nolan is.

Movie Review: Interstellar (2014) – Like the Grapes of Wrath in space

interstellar2

I’m sure the people who made Interstellar are still shaking their heads about how they got their butts handed to them by Big Hero 6 opening weekend. Sitting firmly in the number 2 spot, Interstellar is making money, but I’m sure it was a lot less money than Paramount intended.

Matthew McConaughey takes a break from filming pretentious Lincoln commercials to play Joseph “Coop” Cooper, a widowed engineer with ace piloting skills. For some reason, despite being an ace pilot, he’s farming corn with his father-in-law (John Lithgow) and two kids, 10-year-old Murph (Mackenzie Foy) and teenage Tom (Timothée Chalamet). The planet is dying and schools are teaching farming, while everyone is waiting to suffocate from air filled with gas. Stuffed into the movie are info-dumps where old people talk, documentary style, about how it used to be before we ruined the planet. Now, the people on Earth have two goals. Farm corn and find another planet…probably to farm more corn. So, because the best person to send into space is a corn farmer, Coop is sent along with sexy copilot Amelia (Ann Hathaway), an astrophysicist (David Gyasi), a geographer (Wes Bentley), and some robots to find a new place to live.

The effects in this movie are awesome and it does have it’s moments of gripping the edge of your seat thrills. It’s a thrill ride, while at the same time, just a bit depressing. This is not Star Wars. It’s more like the Grapes of Wrath in space. From Coop’s rural dystopia, to his travels into space, everything has an air of desperation and depression.

Interstellar-Movie-Review-464422-5

It almost seems like someone tried to stay as close as possible as to what the real apocalypse would look like. Forget old testament stories of lightening coming down from the sky and mass floods, if there is an end to the world, this is what it will look like. People slowly dying off because we can no long make food and the chemicals we put in the atmosphere are coming back to get us. In that, this movie is highly realistic.

This movie is scientifically cutting edge and I wish they’d just focused on that, rather than sticking all this sticky sweet sentimentality and messages of hope into it. That’s where it falls flat for me. I feel like the director is in the audience punching me in the face, screaming “cry, already!” while I’m sitting there saying, “but I want Mathew McConaughey to die!”

Matthew McConaughey was a big problem for me during this movie. His good ole boy “awe shucks’ charm feels like a poor fit for such a desolate, depressing place. He has this air of cockiness that you just can’t shake, whether he’s playing an aging cowboy with Aids or a dude who refuses to move out of his parent’s basement. In those roles, it worked, while in this one, I found it distracting.

Interstellar is a decent movie, but it’s also a bit forgettable, as far as I’m concerned. While it did a great job when it came to the science, I felt that it fell apart when it came to the human connection. Regardless, it’s still a film that’s worth the watch.

Brand New ‘Interstellar’ Images, Excitement Reaches All-Time High

intttt

If you weren’t already excited for Christopher Nolan’s latest project Interstellar, well, there is a good chance you will be after reading this post.

Thanks to the lovely folks at Empire, we have several new images from the film, and a few intriguing quotes from the stars of the film. Matthew McConaughey told Empire that this is the biggest film he’s even been a part of.

“This is the grandest adventure I think any of us will ever see on film. This is the biggest film I’ve ever been a part of. This is one of the biggest films anyone’s ever been a part of.”

We think the point he’s trying to make is that the film is big. Some people may even call it huge, or possibly even monumental. Matthew’s co-star Anne Hathaway believes this film will have people talking for months.

“I am so excited for the world to receive this film, because there’s going to be a new conversation I believe will happen because of it. It’s not a dry, science-based film. It has a pulse. It’s got blood in its veins.”

They certainly know how to promote a film, huh? Significantly better than Jim Carrey’s attempt to destroy Kick-Ass 2.

You can catch Interstellar in a theater near you on November 7.

New Poster For Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Features A Worried Matthew McConaughey

inx

We don’t know much about Christopher Nolan’s latest creation, but we do know Matthew McConaughey is going to try and save us all.

Will he be able to make everything alright, alright, alright? We’ll have to wait a few more months to find out the answer.

The brand new ‘Interstellar’ poster you see down below shows Matthew battling some brutal conditions. You can see the tagline, “The end of Earth will not be the end of us.” It matches up nicely with the first tagline, “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” A truly wonderful line, by the way.

Unlike most films these days, the trailers for Interstellar do not give anything away. There is still a lot of mystery circling this film, which is one of the reasons people are so excited to watch it.

It also doesn’t hurt that Christopher Nolan directed it. Throw in Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, and you just might be looking at one of the best films of the year.

Interstellar will be at a theater near you Nov. 7.
