Frequently bought together
Sci-fi feature written and directed by Christopher Nolan, director of 'The Dark Knight' trilogy. On a resource-depleted Earth in the near future, the discovery of a wormhole which can transport users through time and space unites scientists and explorers in the most important mission in human history. Among the potential travellers is a widowed engineer (Matthew McConaughey) who must decide whether to remain with his two children or to test the limits of human space travel, to see if there is a future for humanity out among the stars or whether the end of the Earth spells the end for humanity. Academy Award-winner Hans Zimmer returns to partner Nolan and score the film. The cast members include Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine and Anne Hathaway. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards and won for Best Visual Effects.Extra Content The Science of Interstellar Plotting An Interstellar Journey Life On Cooper's Farm The Dust Tars and Case The Cosmic Sounds Of Interstellar The Space Suits The Endurance Shooting In Iceland: Miller's Planet/Mann's Planet The Ranger And The Lander Miniatures In Space The Simulation Of Zero Celestial Landmark Across All Dimensions And Time Final Thoughts Trailer 1 - Lee Trailer 2 - Wonder Trailer 3 - Memories Trailer 4 - Mankind

Casting has been spot on and although a minor gripe, Matthew McConaughey's low, breathy voice can be hard to make out at times. But he's at home here in the role of Cooper. Likewise Anne Hathaway et co. Including the young cast members all excel in their roles. Matt Damon brings an amazing quality to the hopeless and frayed Doctor Mann.
For me Hans Zimmer's score, though, is the real star of the piece. The use of a church organ for some of the scenes was inspired and works so well to capture the immensity of the subject matter.
Nolan's ambiguous Tesseract scene may have many scratching their heads but at the end of the day the director is leaving this for us the viewer to interpret as we see fit.
Some more technically minded watchers will complain about the transition from 65mm(?) film to IMAX and back again but frankly I don't understand and at no point has it detracted from my experience of the film.
As well as the 4K UHD disc, which is just a pure joy to watch, is a Blu-Ray disc of the film and a third disc (also Blu-ray) with the special features. This has only added to my appreciation for the film, the lengths to which the crew of Interstellar went to to create it. The disc is chock full of features with conception of the story with Jonathan and Christopher Nolan, creating the score with Hans Zimmer, loads and loads and LOADS of stuff regarding effects, filming and the science backing up the film. Also included is a piece on Interstellar space and mankind's place in the universe and our potential for reaching other worlds, narrated by McConaughey. Christopher Nolan is no stranger in these features and he and several cast and crew discuss the undertaking of producing and directing the film.
One letdown (for me) has been the overall sound, although amazing in clarity and tone, which has been taken from the way it was played in theatres, meaning the music somewhat overwhelms while the actor's voices are more subdued. Fine if you live out in the middle of nowhere with no neighbours and want to experience it this way. But I found the volume on the remote control was getting a lot of use as I alternated between turning down the music and turning up the dialogue and back again.
