"Love is the One Thing That Transcends Time and Space."

“We are made of stellar ash. Our origin and evolution have been tied to distant cosmic events. The exploration of the cosmos is a voyage of self-discovery.” ― Carl Sagan, Cosmos


According to a recent informal IMDb movie poll the most anticipated films of 2014 are 
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Guardians of the Galaxy
Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For, 
The Hobbit 3: The Battle of the Five Armies 

and my personal choice, Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic Interstellar.  If  previews are an indication, similar to the brilliant British director's previous work,  Interstellar will be a stunning visual  feast. The screenplay was a collaborative effort between Christopher Nolan and his accomplished brother Johnathan, produced by Christopher Nolan's wife Emma Thomas and Lynda Obst, with cinematography by Hoyte van Hoytem and music by legendary composer, Hans Zimmer . In 2010, Zimmer created one of the most beautiful and powerful film scores for the thrilling heist drama Inception, one of my  favorite movies of all time. Inception was written, directed and produced by the amazing mind of Christopher Nolan. Eager North American audiences will have to countdown to November 7th when the valiant voyage of the mythic space odyssey is scheduled  for official lift off. Until the release date, have a taste of the intriguing clip above.

Interstellar features Oscar winner, Matthew McConaughey as part of an adventurous team of space travelers who encounter an unexpected wormhole. The film reunites two other cast members from Nolan's super successful Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises's Anne Hathaway and the celebrated Michael Caine.  The movie has a remarkable all star cast including, Oscar nominated (The Help and Zero Dark Thirty), Jessica Chastain, handsome Wes Bentley of Hunger Games fame and the talented Casey Affleck. John Lithgow, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn  David Gyasi and Topher Grace round out an exciting ensemble.
