Interstellar 2 promises an engaging narrative and stunning visuals, so audiences are sure to be delighted by its release. However, filmmaker Christopher Nolan's artistic preferences and approach to studio collaboration, combined with its self-contained nature make its creation more challenging than expected.
Cooper, a former NASA pilot, is convinced to sign on for one last mission - discovering whether humanity has its place among the stars - alongside biologist Amelia Brand (Oscar winner Anne Hathaway of Les Miserables), physicist Romilly (David Gyasi from The Dark Knight Trilogy), and geographer Doyle (Wes Bentley from Mad Max: Fury Road). They travel through a wormhole to an area known as Gargantua where they hope to find life; they arrive by way of Gargantua to find life that can sustain existence there.
McConaughey gives an incredible performance as Cooper. His everyday personality makes him seem realistic as he leads his team into unknown territory. Hathaway and Michael Caine give solid performances too; Hoyte van Hoytema provided stunning cinematography by shooting this film on 35mm Panavision anamorphic format and IMAX 70 mm film formats respectively.
Nolan has kept quiet regarding a possible sequel to interstellar, although speculation suggests it would explore what happened after Cooper left Edmunds' planet and Joseph's son was left without father figure figure, as well as whether Plan B worked in colonizing another planet.
