'Interstellar' Gets New Poster + Solar System Creation & Travel Game
Just after two new posters for Christopher Nolan's space travel drama Interstellar debuted, one more gorgeous one is here, this one with a bit more hope and inspiration in the tagline "Go further." And now, if you just can't wait to see Matthew McConaughey trek across space in November, you can do some space exploration of your own. Along with the new poster, Paramount Pictures unveiled a new game app that allows you to create your own solar system and also travel through other player-created systems in the ship Endurance from the movie. There's even real science applications with how you use gravity and fuel. Look!
Here's the new poster for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar (via Wired):
And here's a glimpse at what you can do in the new Interstellar game app:
The app takes players on a journey through solar systems designed by players, featuring realistic physics conceptualized by Kip Thorne, the film’s scientific advisor and noted theoretical physicist. Players create their own unique solar system with planets, moons, asteroids and more, and travel through other player-created systems in the Endurance, the ship from the film. See how far you can pilot the Endurance without running out of fuel or losing time relative to Earth. Sling-shot through solar systems using real-world physics and gravitational forces. Use wormholes to jump to new systems and survive the ultimate challenge of traveling past a black hole.
Right now the Interstellar game app is available to play in your browser or you can download it for free from the Google Play store. Don't worry Apple users, because it will also be coming to iOS for free next week.
Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. 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 releases on November 7th. For more information and to see a visualization of the stars, visit interstellarmovie.com.
