The line between Matthew McConaughey the person and Matthew McConaughey the parody is getting blurrier and blurrier, and it was very evident at the American Cinematheque Gala on Tuesday night. The gala, which honors an actor every year for his or her achievement in film, chose to celebrate McConaughey for his 22-year (and counting) career.

The British Film Institute is set to re-release Stanley Kubrick’s seminal film 2001: A Space Odyssey into theaters this November, so it’s only natural that we’d get a brand-new trailer 46 years after it was released.
Interstellar is a space odyssey. Onscreen, its stars—Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain—are enveloped in this world, but how strong is their intergalactic knowledge offscreen? Entertainment Weekly tested the actors’ knowledge with a pop quiz at its cover shoot, asking a number of true/false questions: Do astronauts grow taller in space? Are black holes really black? See if you can keep up with Christopher Nolan’s crew.
They say we don’t go to outer space anymore. But Christopher Nolan is doing a pretty good job of faking it.
It’s October 2013, and we are on the set of code name Flora’s Letter, a.k.a. Interstellar, an epic sci-fi adventure that represents the beginning of the director’s post-Batman life. Working on the same soundstage where he once built a dank batty cave for Christian Bale to skulk in, the British-American helmer has constructed a starship to take Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway across the universe to find salvation for the human race. On screen that ship, the Endurance, will be composed of 12 interlocking pods. Right now it’s only three pods resting at a slant on a mammoth steel gimbal tilted at a 30-degree angle. It resembles a seesaw for giants. READ FULL STORY
In an impressive synergy of two of 2014’s most hyped projects, the game-changing virtual-reality platform Oculus Rift is pairing up with Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film, Interstellar, to give people in a few cities a taste of both in the lead-up to the movie’s Nov. 5 release.
At a few select AMC Theatres with IMAX, people will get to strap on the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 goggles and check out the inside of a spacecraft, presumably like one viewers will see in the film. “Presumably” because Nolan has closely guarded the details of Interstellar, though trailers have helped fill in some of the blanks.
The “exhibit,” as the Rift experience is being called, doesn’t provide any more detail, but it is pretty awesome: Users sit in a recliner that responds to movement inside the Oculus and look through the goggles to see the interior of a spacecraft with an impressively large planet lurking outside the window. The entire environment is richly detailed, and the goggles allow users to look around in all directions to see what’s around them on the ship. There’s also an impressive zero-gravity portion and some floating objects that make great use of the Rift’s 3-D capabilities. The whole thing is over in a few minutes, though users could probably spend two or three times that looking around.
The exhibit tour kicked off in New York on Monday at the AMC Lincoln Square 13, where it will remain until Wednesday before hitting the road (dates below). It’s free and open to people from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on a first come, first serve basis.
Oct. 6-8: New York, AMC Lincoln Square 13
Oct. 17-19: Houston, AMC Gulf Point 30
Oct. 25-27: Los Angeles, AMC City Walk
Nov. 5-19: Chantilly, Virginia, Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Center
Though initial Interstellar trailers remained relatively earthbound, the latest clearly shows where Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and company are headed in Christopher Nolan’s latest. And it’s a place with some waves that look like mountains. “Everybody ready to say goodbye to our solar system?” McConaughey says.
Christopher Nolan is famous—some say infamous—for building trailers and teasers that are their own dramatic narratives—red herrings that preserve the surprises of the actual full-length film. But the new TV spot for Interstellar, which opens Nov. 7, clearly establishes the stakes that previous clips have alluded to. “Your daughter’s generation will be the last to survive on earth,” intones Nolan’s good-luck charm Michael Caine to Matthew McConaughey’s good ol’ boy pilot. “Find us a new home.”
“You may have to decide between seeing your children again, and the future of the human race,” says Anne Hathaway’s astronaut, who joins McConaughey’s pilot on a hail-Mary mission to find an inhabitable planet. READ FULL STORY
Much of Interstellar may still be shrouded in mystery, but one thing is clear: Matthew McConaughey’s engineer is front and center on a venture into space to save Earth.
Christopher Nolan made his first-ever appearance at Comic-Con this year, promoting his new film, Interstellar. The Dark Knight director took the opportunity to present a trailer for the Paramount/Warner Bros. film, and now that clip has been released online.
Set to music presumably by the film’s composer Hans Zimmer, the new trailer showcases Interstellar‘s stunning visuals and focuses on the relationship of Matthew McConaughey’s character with his children. In the film, McConaughey plays an engineer who, along with several other scientists and astronauts, journeys through a newly discovered wormhole to save the world.
The film also stars Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain, and Anne Hathaway. Interstellar hits theaters November 7.
