Interstellar

If you haven't gotten a chance to see Interstellar yet, the Christopher Nolan directed film is still playing in theaters amidst all the releases that arrived on Christmas Day. But for those who have already seen the film, now you can take the time to examine a scene, complete with some narration from Nolan himself explaining the anatomy of the scene. The particular sequence highlighted is Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway landing on the water planet. What's impressive is hearing just how little visual effects are in the sequence, using lifesize ships with cameras both inside and outside, and no green screen. Watch!

Here's the Anatomy of a Scene featuring Christopher Nolan's Interstellar from New York Times:

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 has in theaters now. Go see it!

In the future when most blockbuster films are superhero films, sequels, CGI fest, people will finally appreciate the underrated gem that is Interstellar. Christopher Nolan's best film in my opinion.

I need to see it again, I was extremely excited the first time I saw it, but it ended up putting me to sleep.

I really don't think it was under rated by the "majority". I think we here on FirstShowing and other film sites are a vocal minority who are really just outspoken hooligans who are trying to exact our own inadequacies unto these poor films. // Then again...YOLO!!!~

I hope Interstellar wins Oscars for best picture and for special effects too.
