Director Christopher Nolan (THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, INCEPTION) again creatively builds upon his experimental cinematography with his use of anamorphic 35mm and 15perf/70 IMAX cameras attached to aeroplanes, to provide the audience with stunningly visuals and has successfully re-imagined the science fiction blockbuster genre on a grand scale.
If you are looking for a comparison to go by, INTERSTELLAR is a deep space thriller and odyssey that is reminiscent of selective parts of the premise in the source material for several science fiction films, including THE PLANET OF THE APES, 2001 and GRAVITY.
The film is set in the not-too-distant future. INTERSTELLAR shows a global crisis where planet earth’s crops are being ravaged and destroyed by an uncontrollable blight. A space journey is undertaken to save humanity from its destructive excesses, and to find a new planet like earth to re-locate all seven billion human inhabitants of Earth, or to start again on a new earth utilising the thousands of fertilised human eggs carried on-board the spacecraft.
