The highly anticipated Interstellar will be released later this year, but we're still relatively short on plot details. Luckily, Entertainment Weekly has done some digging, and they have two new stills and a few tantalizing quotes to show for it.

John Lithgow, one of the stars of the film, discussed the lofty, ambitious thematic content: "It's a thrilling interaction between grand spectacle and intimate, intense relationships. More so than many films of this genre, Chris found a way to make fantastic drama out of cosmic ideas and current human anxieties."

 

Director Christopher Nolan described the ways in which the film represents a departure from the easy cynicism of many sci-fi works: "We have spirited actors playing spirited characters who are trying to make the best of a bad situation and doing a rather good job at it."

 

EW reported that the film shot footage of a desolated Earth in Alberta, Canada, and footage of a foreign planet in Iceland, possibly the alien planet depicted in McConaughey's portrait above. The film also stars Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Ellen Burstyn, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, and Wes Bentley. It will be released on November 7.
