Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar Lands on the Cover of Empire

Christopher Nolan’s hotly anticipated sci-fi adventure Interstellar has landed on the cover of the November issue of Empire, giving us an up-close and personal look at Matthew McConaughey’s space pilot Cooper. Check it out below!

In the issue Nolan preps us for the galaxy hopping journey Cooper will go on. 

“It’s a very classically constructed movie,” says Nolan, “but the freshness of the narrative elements really enhance it. I liken it to the blockbusters I grew up with as a kid, family films in the best sense: edgy, incisive, challenging.”

He also compares it to his last mind-bending sci-fi outing: “It’s almost a mirror image of ‘Inception.’ It expands out in the way ‘Inception’ contracts inwards.”

The November issue of Empire containing the full interview hits newstands on September 25th. 

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.

Opening in theaters and IMAX on November 7, Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, Wes Bentley, Bill Irwin, Mackenzie Foy, Topher Grace and David Gyasi.
