Nolan

Today Paramount and Warner Bros. announced the start of production for Christopher Nolan's new movie called "The Christopher Nolan Movie With Matthew McConaughey."

Even though that might be what we care most about, the movie is actually called "Interstellar," and it boasts an all-star cast that includes our dude McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, David Oyelowo, Topher Grace, your mom, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine, plus a killer concept.

"Interstellar" is based on Nolan's original idea and a previous script that his brother Jonathan developed back when Stephen Spielberg had an eye to direct it. It tells the story 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 original concept dealt with the theories of a guy named Kip Thorne, a CalTech physicist that did some amazing work with theoretical wormholes and their potential for time travel (read more about those here), so perhaps that's a clue where "Interstellar" will take us.

"Interstellar" opens in theaters on November 7, 2014 and will use a combination of regular 35mm film and IMAX, similar to "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises."

Skyfall

Please stop joy crying. There are some things to discuss first.

Yes, it's true. Some publication out there (specifically Daily Mail) has reported something to the tune of "Christopher Nolan has had informal talks with Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson about directing 'Bond 24.' "

This isn't isn't coming out of left field. Nolan has filled his recent films, "Inception" and "The Dark Knight Rises" especially, with references to 007, and he has previously expressed interested in eventually directing a film. He told Empire, "It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things."

But there are a few problems with this report.

Jessica Chastain

Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway are getting some good company in Christopher Nolan's new movie, "Interstellar." According to new reports, Jessica Chastain is in talks to portray a "third lead" in the film.

Deadline doesn't know more about her role beyond the fact that "this is a great follow to her Oscar-nominated turn in 'Zero Dark Thirty.'" In fact, little is known about the movie in general, and its stars plan to keep it that way.

Christopher Nolan IMAX

Paramount Pictures has some big plans for its future with IMAX. The studio revealed at CinemaCon that it has signed a deal to shoot five of its upcoming films using IMAX cameras, and IMAX chairman Greg Foster announced two of them at CinemaCon's opening presentation.

Honestly, the two pictures selected shouldn't come as much of a shock. Christopher Nolan, a longtime advocate of the IMAX format, will shoot his new movie "Interstellar" using IMAX cameras, while Michael Bay will use the new, smaller 3D IMAX camera for "Transformers 4." Bay previously shot portions of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" using the format.

Matthew McConaughey

As with all of the Christopher Nolan's movies, information about his next project, the mysterious time travel adventure, "Interstellar," has slowly begun to leak out.

Deadline is reporting that the secretive director has offered the lead role of Cooper to Matthew McConaughey. The part, if accepted, would only cap off an incredible renaissance for the 43-year-old actor, who wowed audiences and critics in "Magic Mike," "Killer Joe," "Bernie," and the upcoming "Mud."

Inception

Christopher Nolan's "Inception" is a stunning achievement of the modern blockbuster era. It began mostly as a favor to Nolan from Warner Bros. to keep him happy enough to stick around for a third Batman movie, but what the director did with that one round of backscratching is create the kind of film we may not see for a long time.

"Inception" is an action movie, but it's one based on an idea, which is, — you probably know — is the most resilient parasite. But Nolan's idea for "Inception" wasn't a high-concept, poster-ready elevator pitch. To try to tell someone what "Inception" is about neither does justice to the plot nor really let that person know what "Inception" is about.
