The major motion picture release Interstellar from Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, directed by Christopher Nolan (Inception, Dark Knight Trilogy), has been recognized with the Truly Moving Picture Award by nonprofit arts organization Heartland Film. Select theatrically-released titles—entertaining films that do much more than just entertain—are honored with the designation throughout the year. Submissions are received directly from studios and producers for consideration.
“Interstellar is both a breathtaking cinematic accomplishment and an insightful examination of humankind’s most primal fears and joys,” says Tim Irwin, Heartland Film’s artistic director. “It is simultaneously powerful in a visceral and emotional way.”
In the future, governments and economies across the globe have collapsed, food is scarce, NASA is no more, and the 20th Century is to blame. A mysterious rip in spacetime opens and it’s up to whatever is left of NASA to explore and offer up hope for mankind. Interstellar 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 film stars Academy Award® Winner Matthew McConaughey (Cooper), Academy Award® Winner Anne Hathaway (Amelia), Jessica Chastain (Murph), David Gyasi (Romilly), Wes Bentley (Doyle) and Academy Award® Winner Michael Caine (Professor Brand).
The film opened with advance screenings in IMAX® 70mm film, 70mm film and 35mm film formats on Wednesday, Nov. 5, followed by a nationwide release on Nov. 7.
