Interstellar: Final Preview

Posted by The Daily Zombies Wednesday, November 5, 2014

"The End of Earth will not be The End of Us."

And here we are looking at what could be the end of our search for the Movie of the Year 2014 with the release of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar this weekend. The Daily Zombies takes a final look at the last stretch of the promotional campaign from Warner Bros. Pictures for what is easily one of the most anticipated films of the year. 

Finally, the wait will be over this weekend. We have chronicled on the developments of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar long enough since we had our First Look at the sci-fi drama last December with the first teaser trailer. For longtime readers of The Daily Zombies, it is not a secret that Nolan is one of the selected few film-makers (dead or alive) that can truly excite our undead nerves in a way most other regular tentpole films can barely achieve. Therefore, the release of any films helmed by the acclaimed British film-maker is an event for us. After all, the last time we checked out a Nolan film, it was The Dark Knight Rises back in 2012. With that, we have to confessed that we are indeed somewhat underwhelmed by the final chapter of the epic trilogy. But given the impossible hype and anticipation of the film, as well as the impossible heights that 2008's The Dark Knight had attained, we do understand the inevitable pitfall for the film.

But with Interstellar, we are looking at another animal from the Nolan house. The best way to look at this will be through Nolan's 2010 sci-fi film, Inception. Apart from the honor of scoring the Movie of the Year 2010 here at The Daily Zombies, Inception presented another side of Nolan with its sweeping and more importantly, entirely original visions. And because this is Christopher Nolan, who was red-hot following The Dark Knight, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures spare no efforts and budgets in supporting the film. With Interstellar, Nolan has yet again tapped into his original visions to conjure what appears to be hard sci-fi film with astounding aspirations.

Speaking of hard sci-fi films, we have not seen any notable films featuring astronauts despite the critical and financial success of Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity last year. While Hollywood's interest in space-faring is probably similar to Obama's, Interstellar seems to be going full steam with its outer-space expedition plot, based on the breathtaking spectacle of outer-space sequences that we have witnessed thus far from the trailers. More importantly, apart from the film's apocalyptic theme, a very strong sense of sentimentality can be felt with the moving story of family man Cooper (played by leading man Matthew McConaughey) who are torn at leaving his family for a desperate quest to save the world. Supported by a stellar ensemble cast with the likes of Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn and Michael Caine, McConaughey, who is undoubtedly having the best year in his career, appears to be absolutely killing it in the protagonist role. 

Recently, it has been announced that Interstellar will make its premiere on 5th November in North America in 70 mm and 35 mm film formats in approximately 240 theaters, including at least 41 70 mm IMAX theaters. Once again reiterating Nolan's advocacy of film as opposed to digital, it is however a shame that most theaters everywhere have converted to digital. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that Interstellar should be witnessed in full IMAX glory to do justice to the incredible visuals that we have seen thus far. For a full listing of all of the theaters that are projecting the film in 70mm IMAX, 70mm, 35mm, digital IMAX, 4K digital, and digital, you can check out the official Interstellar site.  

With no further ado, let's check out the recent and final batch of clips and featurette for the film.

Here's the official synopsis of the film: 

With our time on Earth coming to an end, a team of explorers undertakes the most important mission in human history; traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars.

Interstellar is currently scheduled to have a limited release in North America on 5th November and a wide release on 7th November 2014. For the limited release in North America, it will be released in 70 mm and 35 mm film formats in approximately 240 theaters still project the format, including at least 41 70 mm IMAX theaters.
