New ‘Interstellar’ photos and TV spots reveal many details, Wes Bentley, Jessica Chastain

Empire Magazine promised more Interstellar insight and material after the outlet unveiled the covers for its November edition and now those details are being released with new images from the film as new TV spots target fans.

Matthew McConaughey headlines an all-star cast in a story of explorers who discover a wormhole to “surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.”

First Showing is reporting that the early screenings on MovieTickets.com maybe up to three days before the wide release.  If you search for Interstellar showings on November 4th 40 miles from the 90505 zip code, you get options including the AMC Universal Citywalk Stadium 19 and the AMC Puente Hills 20, but no TCL Chinese Theatre, the IMAX flagship theater that is installing a 15perf/70mm film projection system just for Interstellar.

Anne Hathaway reunited with director Christopher Nolan as a character named Brand and has high hopes for the film:

“I am so excited for the world to receive this film, because there’s going to be a new conversation I believe will happen because of it.”

Hathaway added that Nolan’s approach and intellectual stlye does not take precedence over emotion in Interstellar: “It’s not a dry, science-based film.  It has a pulse.  It’s got blood in its veins.”

Nolan told Empire [via The Playlist], Nolan about the tone of Interstellar: “It’s not straight action and it’s not straight thriller,” Nolan says about the tone of his movie. “I do liken it to the blockbusters I grew up with as a kid. A lot of them by Spielberg. I don’t like talking about Spielberg too much because he was the director on the project before me and I don’t want to keep coming back to that, but the truth is, there’s a great spirit to films like Close Encounters [Of The Third Kind] and Jaws that I really wanted to try and capture, because I haven’t seen it in a very long time.”

The Film Stage is reporting that the movie is 169 minutes long, which makes it the longest one yet for director Christopher Nolan.  At the Comic-Con panel for Interstellar, Nolan mentioned Stanley Kubrick‘s 2001: A Space Odyssey as an inspiration.  Kubrick’s movie runs at only 160 minutes.

Interstellar opens in 2D and IMAX on November 7th, and also stars Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothée Chalamet and Matt Damon.
