Christopher Nolan's Interstellar Will Be More Science Than Fiction

The details of Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi adventure 'Interstellar' have been closely guarded by all involved. So closely guarded in fact that Anne Hathaway had to slap herself on the wrist during a recent interview with MTV in which she almost gave away details of the story.

 

"After I read the script, I said, 'This is fantastic. How on earth is Chris going to pull this off?' Then you think, 'Oh, it's Chris Nolan. He just will,'" said Hathaway to MTV. "I got to set every day and my mind was blown away day after day, just by the sets because we - Oops. I can't tell you. Never mind. Never mind."

 

Unfortunately there's not much to gleam from the Oscar winner's comments other than the fact that Interstellar is going to be a pretty spectacular movie event, which when you consider it is about space travel, through wormholes, with Christopher Nolan directing....it wouldn't take a genius to come to this conclusion.

 

MTV's conversation with another Interstellar star, Wes Bentley (Hunger Games), did yield some slightly more revealing results.

 

"For as much as I can say, it was very ambitious, and what's interesting about it is it's not really science fiction as much as it's based in real theoretical physics," Bentley told MTV. "I think it will be very interesting for a lot of people."

 

These comments will be music to the ears of many who, after the success of Gravity, will be yearning for more theory-based science fiction movies to hit the screen. Everything from what Hathaway and Bentley have said right through to the story line and the cast that has been assembled has me salivating with anticipation for this movie. But unfortunately for me and all the other sci-fi fans out there, we still have the best part of 10 months to wait as Interstellar is not released in theaters until November 7th 2014.
