‘Interstellar’ blasts off: read our first-look review

Posted at 3:00 pm, October 27, 2014 in Arts & Entertainment

‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘Inception’ director Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi adventure ‘Interstellar’ is the most anticipated film of the autumn, and a hot tip for Oscar glory next year. The film takes audiences on a spectacular journey through time and space, as Matthew McConaughey’s rugged spaceship pilot searches for a new home for humanity, to replace the dying Earth. It’s got scope, scale, special effects and a cast to die for (McConaughey is joined by Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine and Matt Damon), but is it actually any good?Following a series of of advance screenings in the US last week, expectations for the film went stratospheric: filmmakers Edgar Wright and Rian Johnson took to Twitter to sing Nolan’s praises. ‘Truly a magnificent film,’ gushed Wright. ‘See it large and loud’. Londoners will be able to follow his advice, as the film opens simultaneously at both the BFI Imax and the Science Museum’s Imax screen (tickets are on sale for both now).

So what did our film editor Dave Calhoun think of the film? You can read his review of ‘Interstellar’ here, and keep your eye on timeout.com/film for an exclusive interview with Christopher Nolan later in the week.
