Interstellar

Here is a takeaway from this latest trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar: Matthew McConaughey is going to cry a lot in this thing. The star of the upcoming sci-fi space opus already teared it up in the film’s first teaser, and now he looks like he’s back at it. This time, though, it looks like he’s crying in space. Here is another takeaway from this latest trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar: we’re going to space, you guys! This new trailer gives us a much better and wider look at what Nolan’s spacey stuff is going to look like — cold, watery, very cool — alongside McConaughey apparently sobbing at every turn. As it so happens, when you decide to go save the world and leave your family in the process, you get emotional about it. We’re right there with you, big guy. Take a look:

Interstellar Movie

Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Christopher Nolan might be one of them. It’s been almost half a year since our last tease, but this new Interstellar trailer gives the full force of the fire. Our wonderful planet is doomed, so the only hope for humanity is to find a new place to live. That’s where engineering whiz Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and a visionary played by Michael Caine come into the picture. Yet while the larger focus is traveling to another star, Cooper is tethered to this planet by his daughter Murphy (Mackenzie Foy). Check out the trailer for yourself:

interstellar teaser 1

How do you fill a nearly two-minute-long teaser for a movie you’re not ready to show much footage from? Pad it with archival material, of course. The first look at Christopher Nolan‘s highly anticipated new sci-fi film Interstellar has arrived online, and at first we could mistake it for a documentary with its clips from the Great Depression and the history of the U.S. space program plus some celebrity voiceover narration by Matthew McConaughey. This is a nonfiction propaganda film about why we must support a return to space exploration, isn’t it? After all, the concept is nearly identical to that of the Peter Cullen-narrated “We Are the Explorers” NASA PSA that played ahead of Star Trek Into Darkness earlier this year.

Matt Damon

We still know next to nothing about Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. Matthew McConaughey will voyage through a wormhole- that’s about it. But at least we can add one more name to the list of those joining him on his cosmic voyage: Matt Damon. The actor will be joining Nolan’s latest for a small role; one that only necessitates two weeks out of Interstellar‘s four-month shoot. Obviously, it hasn’t yet revealed who Damon will be playing, but presumably he’ll be another space voyager, or an alternate-universe version of McConaughey’s character, or a caveman in some elaborate sequence where the film jumps back to the dawn of time (as people are already comparing this one to 2001: A Space Odyssey).

Paramount announced today that principal photography is officially underway in Canada for Christopher Nolan‘s galactic voyager movie Interstellar. The film, based on a combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan, follows a group of intrepid explorers who use a wormhole to bend the limits of human travel and experience a radical space journey. On this fantastic voyage? Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Topher Grace, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine, among others. Nolan is re-teaming with his usuals: production designer Nathan Crowley, editor Lee Smith, and composer Hans Zimmer for the film as well. Though not much is known about the film yet besides these little tidbits, it sounds like a fantastic sci-fi affair with the trappings for something of epic proportions. Can you just picture Michael Caine hurtling through a wormhole set to a Hans Zimmer score? Because I’m definitely imagining that right now, and it’s the best movie of the year. Interesting to note: renowned physicist Kip Thorne is consulting on the film, as well as serving as executive producer, so this wormhole journey might actually be pretty factual. Interstellar is in theaters November 7, 2014.

What is Casting Couch? It’s the news roundup that’s gathering together one last batch of casting reports before it takes a brief Comic-Con break. Read on for news regarding screen beauties like Linda Cardellini, Ashley Greene, and John Lithgow, and then we’ll see you again next week. After recent performances in dramas like Smashed and The Spectacular Now, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead seems to be leaving her past of performing in genre work behind in order to take more dramatic roles. Deadline is reporting that she’s just signed up for her third new job is just a few weeks, and this one will see her joining the Jeremy Renner-starring Gary Webb biopic, Kill the Messenger, as the character of Dawn Garcia, who was Webb’s editor at the “San Jose Mercury News.” Just a year or so ago people might have been questioning if she could pull this off, but now it’s clear that she can. Let’s just hope that all of these new bonafides don’t keep her from still doing the occasional cheesy action movie now and then. It’s important to let your hair down.

What is Casting Couch? It’s a daily news column that compiles the biggest casting scoops from all around the Internet. Today’s edition is absolutely bursting with news, so let’s jump right in. Due to his being a member of The Beastie Boys, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz is a legend in the rap game. Many don’t know that he has a little bit of a history in the acting world though. Of course, many don’t know that because his career consisted of a couple small roles in the late 80s and early 90s, and then he seemed to forget about his little hobby. The Wrap has a report that Horovitz might soon be making a big acting comeback though, because apparently he’s in talks to join Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts in Noah Baumbach’s (Frances Ha) next film, While We’re Young. In it Horovitz would be playing a new father who can no longer relate to Stiller and Watts’ characters because they don’t have kids, which is pretty much the most frightening notion ever for those of us who remember Ad-Rock as being a beer-swilling teenager on MTV’s spring break.

What is Casting Couch? It’s one more shot of casting updates before you’re off to enjoy your weekend. Read on for stories involving Anne Hathaway, Gerard Depardieu, and Scarlett Johansson. Helena Bonham Carter has always had an otherworldly quality to her. That’s probably why she’s spent much of her career playing queens, witches, ape women, junkies, and the like. And it’s probably why Kenneth Branagh has tapped her to play a very magical role in his upcoming live action take on Cinderella. THR is reporting that she’s been hired to play Cinderella’s fairy godmother, the mystical benefactor who’s famous for helping the little servant girl along by turning pumpkins into stage coaches and water into wine, or whatnot. She joins a pretty stacked cast that features names like Downton Abbey’s Lily James as the title character, Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden as the charming prince, and Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother.

Caine

What is Casting Couch? Today, it’s pondering the inevitability of all Christopher Nolan-related casting while readying some sweet margaritas for the weekend. Please contain your shock as we pass on news that Michael Caine will join Christopher Nolan for a sixth outing, as the veteran actor has now signed on for a role in the director’s upcoming and already tremendously anticipated Interstellar. It’s currently unknown what role Caine will play in the sci-fi feature, so there’s scarce little for us to write here beyond the usual “he will be great,” “it will be great,” “they will be great.” Great stuff. [Deadline, via ComingSoon] Fine, fine, we’ll also throw you another Interstellar bone to make up for our lack of knowledge. Deadline (via ComingSoon) also reports that Jessica Chastain is lining up to join the new feature as well. Chastain is in talks to play the “third lead” in the film, next to the already-cast Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, which pretty much tells us just as much as that Caine casting does, so we’re at a bit of a loss here. Perhaps a love triangle? Pure speculation? Fine, we still don’t know much about the film. But isn’t that sort of nice?

Christopher Nolan’s next film as a director, Interstellar, is something of a mystery. We know that it was originally set up by Steven Spielberg, that it has something to do with wormholes and time travel, and that Jonathan Nolan was brought on board to write the initial script, but any sort of plot or character specifics have been closely guarded. Lately some casting news regarding the sure-to-be-huge blockbuster has started to leak though.

We’ve got dates for every kind of film under the sun (vampires! true life trauma! comic book movies! historical dramas!), including a hefty number of totally new dates (and a smidgen of some simple change-ups) for many of the films. What we’re saying is, there is a lot of stuff here, so better pull out your day planners and get cracking on configuring your movie-watching for the rest of the year. After the break, find out when you can see David O. Russell‘s untitled reunion with his Silver Linings Playbook stars, Christopher Nolan‘s next, and seemingly everything else in between. Your wallet is about to take a big hit.

Christopher Nolan‘s epic superhero trilogy is behind him which means it’s time for him to direct something original and better. Consider that less of a knock on his Dark Knight trilogy than it is praise for his non-superhero films like The Prestige, Memento and Inception. But while legions of fans online would squee at word of him directing Will Beall’s script for the Justice League movie… that announcement doesn’t appear to be forthcoming. He’s going with time travel and some well-earned nepotism instead.
