When the menace known as the Joker emerges from his mysterious past, he wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham. The Dark Knight must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.
Earth's future has been riddled by disasters, famines, and droughts. There is only one way to ensure mankind's survival: Interstellar travel. A newly discovered wormhole in the far reaches of our solar system allows a team of astronauts to go where no man has gone before, a planet that may have the right environment to sustain human life.Written by
Dr. Brand makes a reference to the biblical Lazarus, who was raised from the dead. While not explicitly referenced, the Dark Knight trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan features a character, known as Ra's Al Ghul, who, in the Batman comics cheated death numerous times, thanks to the magic and science of the "Lazarus Pit." The trilogy, and this film, share common themes, such as rebirth and beginning new lives, and they also involve end-of-the-world types of scenarios (although in the Batman films, it would be on a smaller scale in the beginning, at least).

The title of the film is technically inaccurate. Interstellar travel is between stars within a galaxy. According to Professor Brand the 3 potential planets (designated Miller, Edmunds and Mann) are in another galaxy. This required both Cooper's Endurance mission and the previous Lazarus mission to travel from our galaxy to another - which would be defined as intergalactic travel. See more »
Why did you and mom name me after something that's bad?
Well, we didn't.
Murphy's law doesn't mean that something bad will happen. It means that whatever *can* happen, will happen. And that sounded just fine to us.

There are no opening credits, except for the title. See more »
The 70mm IMAX version is two minutes shorter than the regular 70mm, Digital IMAX, 35mm, and digital projection versions. This is because the end credits are played in an abbreviated slide-show form (rather than scrolling from bottom to top), due to the size capacity of the IMAX platters, which can hold a maximum of 167 minutes of film.

This movie was the best written, acted, visual effected, etc. movie. This movie was the best movie I have ever seen. I am a huge Christopher Nolan fan and this movie was his finest. Matthew McConaughey turned in his best performance of his lifetime. Anne Hathaway was an amazing supporting actress and compared to her performance in Les Miserables, I have no idea how she didn't get an Oscar for this. The visual effects were more than just Oscar worthy. They were pioneering. I have never seen anything like it. One thing I would recommend is having a little previous knowledge about space. Not like Einstein stuff though. I would recommend you see this movie as fast as you can if you are a Nolan fan or not. I give this movie a rating of 97 out of 100.
