More John Carter movies could be in the works

John Carter was one of the biggest cinematic flops in recent history and heads rolled at Disney after it floundered out of the start gate. It was too bad because it was actually an entertaining piece of science fiction a...

Why is Interstellar one minute shorter in 70mm?

Today the critics in DC got information on the upcoming screenings of Interstellar and for some reason it turns out that Christopher Nolan's space film is one minute longer in its non-70mm format. As you hopefully know t...

NYCC: Disney's Tomorrowland gets its first teaser
by Matthew Razak

If you're not excited for Tommorowland now is the time to get there because at the New York Comic Con Disney started the hype. Nick will be supplying us with a full rundown from the event itself, but above you'll find our first look for the finally-here film from Pixar director Brad Bird. 

Britt Robinson plays a young teen who joins up with a jaded scientist (George Clooney) to discover the mysterious Tommorowland. Just from the trailer alone you can tell they'll be imbuing something special into this film. The only real worry is that Damon Lindelof co-wrote the screenplay with Bird so we might be in for a lot of nonsensical science fiction stuff. Hopefully it is kept at bay by the fun we know Bird can have.

Final Trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar photo
Final Trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar
by Nick Valdez

As Interstellar is one of the few films left making use of physical film over digital, you'll notice a surprising amount of emphasis over it in this most likely final trailer for Christopher Nolan's space hip-hopera (not really) Interstellar. Being touted as a 70mm IMAX film, 70mm film and 35mm film release, Nolan's longest film yet might be his most visually exciting. 

I'd just have to hope it's at least visually good because this trailer showing a few cracks. Watch it and you'll see what I mean. Interstellar opens November 7th. Follow this link to find all the ways you can watch this sucker.

Jupiter Ascending may be the most unique science fantasy coming our way. Too bad the trailers don't really paint it in a good light. As the latest film from the Wachowskis, we should expect all kinds of craziness. The visual...

Interstellar to be Christopher Nolan's longest film yet

I don't really like saying Interstellar is Nolan's "longest film yet," because it might be a trap for his future films to come. What if he just gradually makes his films longer and longer with each entry? Will each film be hi...

Comic-Con trailer for Interstellar
by Nick Valdez

With Matthew McConaughey's recent upswing, I've been more inclined to pay attention to his projects. One such project is Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. A science fiction film about wormholes and future corn, who knows what Interstellar is really about. Remember how we all thought we knew what Inception was going to be then it turned into a confusing mess? I'm hoping Interstellar skips that last part and is just a film about future corn. 

By the looks of this trailer showed off during Comic-Con, this isn't just about corn. Damn it. Interstellar releases into theaters November 7th.
