Last night both writer-director-producer Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey made their Comic-Con debuts to promote ‘Interstellar.’ In typical Nolan fashion, the plot of ‘Interstellar’ is being kept under-wraps, and ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy director and McConaughey didn’t do anything to change that. That said, Nolan did share his inspiration for the film, saying, “I’ve always been a huge fan of science fiction, I’d grown up being amazed by science fiction of the past, obviously ‘Star Wars’ and ’2001.’ These are things that made an incredible impression on me. But more than that, I grew up in an era when to be an astronaut was the highest ambition of any child.” He continued, “The single biggest influence for me was ’2001.’ I was able to go with my dad and see it in London on the big screen. We have the opportunity to tell a similarly ambitious story. That’s my ambition for the film, and I’m striving towards it.” The latest trailer for ‘Insterstellar also debuted at Comic-Con – expect to see it online shortly. You can view the Q & A below.
Set for November 7th, the top-notch cast for ‘Interstellar’ includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine and Matt Damon. My hopes are incredibly high for this one!
