Interstellar

Interstellaris a British-American 2014 science fiction epic film directed by Christopher Nolan , starring Matthew McConaughey , Anne Hathaway , Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine . The film features a crew of astronauts who travel through a wormhole in search of a new home for humanity. Brothers Christopher and Jonathan Nolan wrote the screenplay, which has its origins in a script Jonathan developed in 2007. Christopher Nolan produced the film with his wife Emma Thomas , and Lynda Obst . Caltech theoretical physicist Kip Thorne , whose work inspired the film, was an executive producer and acted as scientific consultant.

Warner Bros. , Paramount Pictures , and Legendary Pictures co-financed the film, while Syncopy and Lynda Obst Productions served as production companies. Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema shot the film on anamorphic 35 mm and IMAX 70 mm photography. Filming commenced in late 2013 in Alberta , Iceland , and Los Angeles . The film features an extensive use of practical and miniature effects, while Double Negative created additional digital effects.

Interstellarpremiered onOctober 26, 2014, in Los Angeles. In North America, it was released in film stock , expanding to venues using digital projectors. It was successful at the box office and received generally positive reviews from critics, who gave particular attention to the film's scientific accuracy, musical score , visual effects and performances from Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Mackenzie Foy . At the 87th Academy Awards , the film won the Best Visual Effects award and received four other nominations — Best Original Score , Best Sound Mixing , Best Sound Editing and Best Production Design , as well as several other awards and nominations particularly for its visual effects, cinematography, musical score, and the performance of Mackenzie Foy.

On twenty-first century Earth, crop blight has caused civilization to regress into a failing agrarian society . Widowed former military pilot and NASA astronaut Cooper runs a farm with his father-in-law, teenage son, and 10-year-old daughter Murphy ("Murph"), who believes her room is haunted by a poltergeist trying to communicate with her by knocking books and model spacecraft off the shelves. Cooper concludes that Murphy's "ghost" is an unknown intelligence using gravitational waves to send a set of binary coded coordinates in the dust. These direct them to a secret NASA installation.

There they meet one of Cooper's college professors, Dr. John Brand, who reveals that a wormhole , apparently created by an advanced intelligence, has opened near Saturn and leads to new planets in another galaxy that may offer hope for humanity's survival. NASA has sent several " Lazarus " spacecraft missions through the wormhole to identify potentially habitable worlds orbiting a supermassive black hole named Gargantua. Three of the missions are sending back positive signals: these have been named for scientists Miller, Edmunds, and Mann. Brand recruits Cooper to command and pilot the spacecraftEnduranceto recover the scientists' data on Gargantua, which he expects to be able to use to solve the use of gravity for propulsion, to send humanity on space stations to one of the habitable planets ("plan A"). As "plan B",Endurancewill carry frozen human embryos to keep the race going on habitable new worlds. Cooper's decision to accept the mission devastates and angers Murphy, who refuses to talk to him.

Cooper'sEndurancecrew consists of Brand's daughter, biotechnologist Amelia; scientists Romilly and Doyle; and robots TARS and CASE. They travel two years to Saturn, then the wormhole quickly sends them to the distant galaxy. They decide to head first to Miller, realizing that its proximity to Gargantua causes severe gravitational time dilation ; each hour spent on the surface will cost seven Earth years. Cooper, Amelia, and Doyle descend to the planet, finding it covered by a shallow ocean, and that Miller is dead. As Amelia attempts to recover the data, an enormous tidal wave hits, killing Doyle and delaying the shuttle's departure.

When Cooper and Amelia return to theEndurance, 23 years have passed on Earth, and the adult Murphy works for NASA, helping Brand solve his gravity equation. With his dying breath, Brand admits to her what she has come to suspect: he has already solved his equation and determined "plan A" to be impossible, lying to her to keep hope alive. However, Murphy keeps working on the problem, and concludes gravity propulsion might work, given enough information about the singularity inside the black hole.

Low on fuel,Endurancecan only visit one more planet before returning to Earth. Cooper discovers that Amelia is in love with Edmunds. The team chooses Mann's planet over Edmunds', as Mann is still transmitting. However, they discover it is perpetually cold, covered with glaciers, and has a poisonous atmosphere. Mann, who always knew plan B was the mission's true goal, faked data about his planet's viability soEndurancewould rescue him. Mann breaks Cooper's spacesuit visor and leaves him to die, and flees toEnduranceon a shuttle; Romilly is killed by a bomb Mann set to protect his secret. Amelia rescues Cooper using the other cargo shuttle, and they arrive atEndurancein time to witness Mann attempting to dock without permission. The imperfectly sealed airlock explodes as he tries to open it, killing him and sendingEndurancespinning wildly and spiraling toward the planet, but Cooper manages to dock the cargo shuttle and use its engines to getEnduranceunder control and keep it in orbit.

Nearly out of fuel, Cooper and Amelia decide to slingshotEndurancearound Gargantua on a course toward Edmunds, while 51 years will pass on Earth. Cooper and TARS detach their shuttle into the black hole, sacrificing themselves to collect data on the singularity, and propel Amelia and CASE faster by reducing the ship's mass. Cooper and TARS emerge into a tesseract , determined by TARS to be a five-dimensional space compressed into a three-dimensional structure, where portals show glimpses into Murphy's bedroom at various stages in her life.

Cooper realizes that the wormhole's creators are descendants of humanity transcending time and space, who have constructed this space so he can communicate with Murphy as her "poltergeist" and help her to implement Plan A. Using gravitational waves, he encodes TARS's data on the singularity by manipulating in Morse code the second hand of a watch he gave Murphy before he left. When the adult Murphy retrieves the watch, she realizes what Cooper is doing, and records the data, which enables her to solve Brand's quantum gravity equation and evacuate Earth.

After Cooper is finished, the region collapses, and he finds himself traveling back through the wormhole, in orbit around Saturn. He awakens aboard a NASA space station and is soon reunited with Murphy, who is on her deathbed after having led humanity's exodus. Satisfied that Cooper has kept his promise to come back for her, she convinces him to find Amelia. He reprograms the rescued TARS, steals a NASA shuttle, and heads to Edmunds' planet, where Amelia is alone with CASE, implementing plan B.
