Right in the centre of the Milky Way, 26,000 light years from us, lies the heaviest object in the galaxy. It is a supermassive black hole containing the mass of four million suns crushed down into a single point by its own gravity. The closer you get to the black hole, the stronger the gravity. Get really close and not even light can escape. A black hole like this one has a dramatic e‑ffect on time, slowing it down far more than anything else in the galaxy. That makes it a natural time machine – Stephen Hawking
Interstellar is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Christopher Nolan. It features a team of space travelers who travel through a wormhole. Nolan combined his idea with an existing script by his brother Jonathan Nolan that was developed in 2007 for Paramount Pictures and producerLynda Obst. Nolan is producing the film with Obst and Emma Thomas. Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain,Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine.
Warner Bros., who distributed Nolan’s previous films, negotiated with Paramount, traditionally a rival studio, to have a financial stake in Interstellar.Legendary Pictures, which formerly partnered with Warner Bros., also sought a stake. The three studios co-financed the film, which is being produced under Nolan’s label Syncopy and Lynda Obst Productions. The director also hired cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema since his previous collaborator Wally Pfister was busy working on Transcendence, his directorial debut. Interstellar is being filmed with a combination of anamorphic35mm and IMAX film photography. Filming took place in the last quarter of 2013 in locations in the province of Alberta, Canada, in southern Iceland, and in Los Angeles, California.
Interstellar is scheduled to be released on November 7, 2014. Paramount will distribute the film in the United States, and Warner Bros. will distribute the film in other territories.
