The 2018 Sundance Film Festival kicked off yesterday in Park City, Utah, at the Sundance Mountain Resort.

Sundance Film Festival Entries We’re Looking Forward To Seeing In Theaters

Every year, the Sundance Film Festival hosts an impressive number of independent films, documentaries, and short films from all around the world. Titles like The Usual Suspects, Memento, Reservoir Dogs, Clerks, Napoleon Dynamite, Super-Size Me, Saw, and Little Miss Sunshine have all found success at the world-renowned festival. So it’s no surprise that this years line-up is definitely keeping with that reputation.

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Opens In Theaters November 7th 2014


Earlier this year we caught our first look at The Dark Knight and Inception director Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming space adventure Interstellar starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway and now the release date is only a few weeks away! Coming from a script from Christopher and Jonathan Nolan, who have worked together on several projects from Memento (2000) to The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Interstellar follows a group of astronauts who embark on a journey through a newly discovered wormhole to explore the vastness of the universe and find a new home for the human race once our resources on Earth have been exhausted. The supporting cast includes Jessica Chastin, Wes Bentley, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, and Christopher Nolan regular Michael Caine. This will be director Nolan’s first film since The Dark Knight Rises in 2012, but he also lent a hand to the script for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and is also serving as executive producer for the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is currently in the filming process. Interstellar is set to hit theaters this November 7th, so be sure to make an effort to go and see this one.

New Trailer For Christopher Nolan’s Next Project ‘Interstellar’ Is Finally Here


I have been waiting to see some visual hints about director Christopher Nolan’s next movie for several months now, and it looks like we finally have an initial trailer to give us some idea. The Dark Knight and Inception director is now looking to the stars to tell his next story, which will focus on the future of mankind and our impact on Earth and the implications of further space exploration. Starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, and Michael Caine (a Nolan regular!), the film is written by Nolan and his brother, Jonathan (who also cowrote Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises) and will be released this November by Warner Bros. with Paramount and Legendary Pictures. If you need further convincing after watching this trailer, just go back and watch Inception, Memento, or Insomnia (three of Nolan’s earlier works) and watch filmmaking at it’s best!
