To celebrate the 10th anniversary, Paramount is re-releasing one of Christopher Nolan’s biggest flicks: Interstellar. The movie, which was co-produced with Warner Bros, will hit theaters this fall. 

10 Years Of Interstellar

Christopher Nolan made Interstellar in 2014 on a budget of $165 million. The film ended up grossing almost seven times as much, leaving the box office after a $731 million run. The movie was originally shot using 35mm and Imax, and the re-release will be available to watch in 75mm and Imax during the re-release.

All-Star Cast

Written by Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonothan Nolan, Interstellar has an all-star cast, which includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, Michael Caine, and Matt Damon. While the acting in the movie is incredible, it was the score, production design, sound editing and mixing, and the visual effects that earned the movie its five Academy Award nominations. While the film was a tentpole success, it didn’t end up bringing home any golden statues that year.

Based On Real Science

Set against the backdrop of a dystopian future plagued by blight and famine, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar unfolds as a group of astronauts embark on a perilous journey through a wormhole near Saturn in pursuit of a new habitable world for humanity. As a suspenseful space adventure, the screenplay actually traces its roots back to a script developed by the Nolan brothers in 2007, which was meant for Steven Spielberg to direct.

To make sure the film was as accurate as a science fiction odyssey can be, Christopher Nolan brought on Caltech theoretical physicist Kip Thorne to serve as an executive producer and scientific consultant. Thorne also authored the companion book, The Science of Interstellar

Wonderfully Shot Directly On Film

Christopher Nolan shot Interstellar using film. The director has long been a supporter of film despite many movie theaters having moved on to using digital projectors. It was a massive task for editors to convert the original movie to digital for the theatrical release in 2014, and Nolan urged audiences to see the movie in Imax, leading to weeks of sold-out shows.

A Massive Success With Critics And Fans

Despite not being nominated for script or actors at the Academy Awards in 2014, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar has been lauded by critics. It received a 73 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 74 out of 100 on Metacritic. Critics loved the thrilling narrative and visual grandeur, but some pointed out the disparity between its intellectual ambition and the final execution. 

Nolan’s Sitll Got It

Christopher Nolan has long been admired as one of the greatest Hollywood directors of the modern age, and not just for his work on Interstellar. The director won Best Director for Oppenheimer at this year’s Academy Awards, and the film received a total of 13 Oscar nominations, winning seven, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Cinematography. It was Nolan’s first Academy Award win, though he’s been nominated for eight.

If you missed Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar when it first opened in theaters in 2014, you’ll have a second chance this fall. The movie will open again on September 27, 2024.
