Matthew MCConaughey is probably one of the most versatile A-List actors in Hollywood. Whether he’s the ring leader of a pack of bum male strippers, an AIDS victims smuggling medication across the border, or playing himself in a “Sex & The City” cameo; he is always the master of his craft. Well now Matthew is back and with an impressive film, “Interstellar.” The movie features Matthew leading a band of space travelers through a wormhole to a habitable planet. As you may have surmised Earth is dying and if humanity is to be saved then another world must become their new home.
“Interstellar” promises to be an epic science fiction film. Directed by Christopher Nolan (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, Inception, etc.) the film was uniquely produced by Paramount, Legendary, and Warner Bros. studios. A joint venture between rivaling studios is rare indeed, but three studios is truly unheard of. From the trailer we can see the film will be visually stunning showcasing what appear to be extraterrestrial landscapes and environments. Besides Matthew, the rest of the cast is rounded out with some pretty amazing actors; Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Cain. Last year’s space hit, “Gravity,” starring Sandra Bullock was a big hit. I am sure this film will surpass that. There is a lot invested in this film. Interestingly, theoretical physicist Kip Thorne, whose works inspired the film, is an executive producer and scientific consultant for the film. This interest in real science is impressive and pushes what was once sci-fi to the true scientifically possible! You can catch “Interstellar” in theaters nationwide November 7th.
