There’s no denying Christopher Nolan is a man who likes his secrets, but for his latest, Interstellar, which began filming this week, he was very clear in telling the world it was about wormholes and parallel dimensions. Which narrowed the plot down to…just about anything one could think of. This movie could conceivably be about dog racing or alien battles. Instead, a new description of the film that appeared in the Alberta newspaper The Fort Macleod Gazette brings drastic global climate change into the equation. As ham-fisted as Nolan can be with his film’s messages, I doubt it can be any more overstated than Elysium, though that film will be more of a distant memory by the time Interstellar worm(hole)s its way into theaters next fall.
We already know that the film has a huge cast and follows a group of explorers who travel to another dimension, or the farthest reaches of human imagination. Whichever you prefer. The new, more detailed plotline reads as follows:
Set in the future, the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown.
