Watch: Reach for the Stars with a Video Tribute to Cinema in Space
Now that Interstellar is in theaters all over the place, why not take a look at some of the big films that boldly went to space before. A video from Movie Clips uses the voiceover from Matthew McConaughey we've heard dozens of times in the trailer for Christopher Nolan's ambitious space epic, and mashes it up with footage from films like the influential 2001: A Space Odyssey, last year's Gravity, the iconic Star Trek: Wrath of Kahn (and some of the other franchise films), the true story of Apollo 13 and a few more. It's not all that inclusive of tons of sci-fi films, but it's still a pretty nicely edited piece of work. Watch!
