Fans of 70mm film’s amazingly superior image size and clarity (including Christopher Nolan) will be happy to find Interstellar returning to Cinestudio on 70mm real film, in Super Panavision 70®.
Of all the cosmological movies of the last few years (Gravity, Melancholia, The Martian, Moon), Interstellar has gotten the best ratings on accuracy from physicists like Kip Thorne. Environmental activists like it, too, as the film opens on an eerily familiar but devastated Earth that no longer provides a safe home for humanity. Former astronaut-turned-farmer Matthew McConaughey, who wants a better life for his daughter, joins NASA’s Hail Mary pass to search out a wormhole that may lead to a planet unspoiled by the human touch.
“…by turns edgy, breathtaking, hopeful, and heartbreaking. It’s an amazing achievement that deserves to be seen on the biggest screen with the best sound system possible.” – James Berardinelli, Reelviews.com
