Is it too early to say that the biggest sci-fi movie of 2014 will be Interstellar?

Interstellar is the next film by Christopher Nolan. Yeah, he's the director that brought us The Dark Knight series and Inception. The film apparently tells a story of space voyagers traversing both space and time.

A synopsis of the film's plot from the press release says it "chronicles the adventures of 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."

The list of celebrities that have signed on to Nolan's project are:

1) Matthew McConaughey
2) Anne Hathaway
3) Jessica Chastain
4) Casey Affleck
5) Topher Grace
6) John Lithgow
7) Wes Bently
8) David Oyelowo
9) Ellen Burstyn
10) Matt Damon
11) Michael Caine

So yeah, I want to know if you guys think Interstellar has the makings of the best sci-fi movie of 2014 cause I sure do. Oh and Patrick, I'll probably be talking about Interstellar for a year now that I know about this (the same as I did with Prometheus and Pacific Rim). So get used to it. Have an awesome Thursday.


  1. It's too soon for me. Part of the problem is one, I've never been a big McConaughey fan and two, with the exception of David Oyelowo, the cast is pretty vanilla...would like to see more diversity, especially in sic-fi flicks.

  2. I am excited for this! I'll definitely have to see it.

  3. The wormhole thing sounds familiar.

    And it's very nice of you to warn Patrick first.

  4. No, not too early at all! It will be another Nolan masterpiece. The man can film no wrong.

  5. So we should just pencil this in for having a disappointing domestic box office? It seems like your endorsement is the kiss of death for these movies.

    Anyway, it might be the biggest movie of 2014 since it seems like 2015 is when everything comes out. But if it's released in November it'll be going up against the first part of the last Hunger Games movie, which will be sure to kick its ass.

  6. I love stories that involve time travel so I'll be keeping a lookout for this one.

  7. Mind expanding space journeys isn't exactly new so will be interesting to see where Nolan goes with this.

  8. I think it's too soon. I remember how people where proclaiming that Pacific Rimm would make a billion dollars and it didn't make half a billion. Still did really well but you can't rush these things.

  9. I don't have a clue, but I do know where to come when I want to get the low down on things Sci-Fi.

    Hope you're doing well.

  10. I bet it will be awesome. Been looking forward to this since it was announced. It will be glorious.

  11. If Interstellar is anything like Promitheus then it will suck butt big time. In my humble opinion.

  12. Sounds very interesting. I'll be watching for some previews.

  13. Matthew. Christoper. Sci-fi.

    Your estimate is exceptionally appropriate. :)

  14. Ooh. I've not heard of this movie. I'm intrigued. I'm only catching up on my movies now. Tonight I'm watching Into Darkness.

  15. Wormhole? Wait, this isn't the Stargate thing I've been hearing about, is it?

    Okay, so where's your countdown clock? I have a feeling you're going to need one.
