Where’s Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” on the festival circuit? Well, $200 million films usually don’t need to or won’t risk a festival bow. Rumors that the sci-fi film would appear at the New York Film Festival turned out to be wrong – the film wasn’t even screened for the committee, and apparently was not complete at the time. So we’ll just have to wait for November like the rest of the world.
Nolan’s latest sci-fi epic centers on a group of explorers who have to travel to (what appears to be) the future through a wormhole to save mankind — or to “surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage” as some synopses have suggested. As ever, Nolan’s got a terrific cast for this one that includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, Topher Grace and David Gyasi.
“Interstellar” opens in theaters and IMAX on November 7th. Check out the new poster below [via Empire]
