The director of The Dark Knight trilogy and Inception, Christopher Nolan surprised attendees of Comic Con with “Dallas Buyers Club” Matthew McConaughey. Nolan and his leading actor, Matthew, introduced their new and upcoming sci-fi epic Interstellar.
With 6,000 attendees packed within the event’s Hall H, Nolan and McConaughey became apart of the biggest venue at the biggest entertainment gathering of the year.
This is the first time both Nolan and McConaughey have made an appearance at San Diego’s annual Comic Con event.
“Thought it would be a fun thing to come down and see what all the fuss is about,” Nolan said to the gathering audience.
Fans have only been given a taste of Nolan’s new production, making audiences very eager to get the latest scoop. According to the famous director, Christopher has revealed that the movie will focus on space travel.
“To be an astronaut was the highest ambition,” he said. “The idea to keep exploring space farther and farther… it (fell) off greatly. We are in a period of incredible technological change, (but it’s about) what’s in your pocket, your living room. I like the idea that we are on the cusp of a brand new era and we are traveling outwards more.”
McConaughey added, “Cooper is a pilot, an engineer and a widowed pilot of two children where civilization is just sustaining,” the Oscar-winner explained. “There’s food, clean water, but they don’t need any explorers, no new bright ideas. Then something happens and the dream of being a pilot again knocks on his door.”
Interstellar hits theaters November 7, and will as well star numerous notable actors such as, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine and Casey Affleck.
