Interstellar

First of all, if you haven't seen Interstellar yet, then don't read any further, as this post will contain several spoilers for Christopher Nolan's sci-fi film. One of the more surprising moments during this grand sci-fi journey is the revelation that Dr. Mann is still alive on the planet he was tasked with exploring as a potential new home. Equally surprising is that the character is played by Matt Damon and he appears to be the saving grace of the mission, at least until he's not. Now a prequel comic book tells the story of how Dr. Mann (and his robot KIPP) arrived on the icy, desolate planet in the film, and how he began to forge data to make it seem like his planet was hospitable, just so someone would come rescue him. Check it out!

Here's just part of the prequel comic book Absolute Zero, but you can read the full story over at Wired:

The screenplay is by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, based on scientific theories by Caltech astrophysicist Kip Thorne and follows a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. Matthew McConaughey stars in the film which Paramount Pictures has in theaters now. Go see it!

    This is awesome! I thought just the part where Mann gets stranded on the planet would make for a great movie. Art is awesome!
