Though Christopher Nolan has been keeping quiet about the specifics of his upcoming Interstellar, it’s said the film will explore the theoretical physics of renowned astrophysicist Kip Thorne, sending its multitude of stars on a wild journey through wormholes and into other dimensions. And, if a new report is to be believed, it will all be because of corn.
The Fort Macleod Gazette (via), always a reliable source for cereal crop information, brings the news in a story about Nolan shooting on the town’s Main Street. According to their unnamed source, Interstellar is shooting under the title Flora’s Letter, and it’s set in a future in which climate change has made it impossible to cultivate anything but the mighty corn plant; as such, “scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown.” Man’s first step into other dimensions begins with Anne Hathaway realizing you can’t make a good burrito with a corn tortilla.
Michael Caine–the sage, fatherly wormhole that passes through all of Christopher Nolan’s universe, at least to like 2005–will surprise no one by showing up in Interstellar. He joins the just-cast Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway in Nolan’s film, which has to do with an interstellar voyage, wormholes, and other science-y things to test “the farthest borders of our scientific understanding.” As with the rest of the cast, Caine’s role isn’t revealed. But when the interstellar spaceship takes off, I bet he’ll let slip a coy smile, revealing a pride in McConaughey that betrays his earlier angry words of concern.
Taking some time off to celebrate love, Ashley Tisdale and her boyfriend Christopher French attended a friend’s wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Sunday (April 21).
The “High School Musical” babe donned a gorgeous violet dress as she and her beau strolled through the resort on their way to the ceremony.
During the fun, Miss Tisdale shared, “Perfect day and perfect night. Such a wonderful celebration #loveisintheair”
In related news, Ashley recently told MTV News that she and her Disney gal pal Vanessa Hudgens really miss music. “I think music, for us, is a big part of us, me and Vanessa,” she said. “We love it. We obviously came from ‘High School Musical,’ so we miss it.”
Heading out for some afternoon shopping, Ashley Tisdale and Christopher French spent time together in Los Angeles on Thursday (April 18).
The “Scary Movie 5″ star wore a Rolling Stones T-Shirt, denim vest, short shorts, and tall boots while her rocker beau managed to look tough while carrying her tiny fluffy pup named Maui.
Recently, the 27-year-old star spoke to MTV News about feeling inspired to make music again. Referring to “Spring Breakers” costar Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley said, “I think music, for us, is a big part of us, me and Vanessa. We love it. We obviously came from ‘High School Musical,’ so we miss it.”
When asked if she’ll do another album, Ms. Tisdale replied, “It’s so funny. I’ve been asked that question a lot, and I’ve just always been somebody who needs to be inspired, obviously, to do something. I don’t just want to do it just to do it. But I have been missing music, so I think I’m going to be going to the recording studio, like, next week.”
The RED and Expendables franchises, and the upcoming comedy Last Vegas, have made it clear: the elderly are here to stay, or at least we need to keep letting them think that until we can find a home that takes their insurance. So, since no one has yet thought to remake 1986’s Tough Guys, now we’ve got Stand Up Guys, a Fischer Stevens-directed film in which Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin play decrepit career criminals having a wild night on the town as a last hurrah before Walken completes a mutually-acknowledged hit out on Pacino. Think The Bucket List, if that film came with a more persistent reminder that Morgan Freeman was going to murder Jack Nicholson.
So, Al Pacino… he’s just Liza Minnelli sans makeup now, right?
Die hard fans have been waiting for awhile now, and finally director Christopher Nolan has announced the name of the third film in his “Batman” series.
The comic book flick will be titled “The Dark Knight Rises” and is scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2012.
On a visual level, “The Dark Knight Rises” will employ “high-definition approaches and IMAX cameras to strike out on a different cinematic path than the stereoscopic technology that, for better or worse, has become the dominant conversation in the blockbuster sector.”
Nolan added, “We’ll use many of the same characters as we have all along, and we’ll be introducing some new ones.”
Pennies from Heaven is a 1981 musical from director Herbert Ross. The film is based on a popular BBC television drama of the late 1970s. It stars Steve Martin, Bernadette Peters, Christopher Walken and Jessica Harper. Chris plays a tap-dancing pimp who lures Martin’s mistress (Bernadette Peters) into a life of prostitution. The dance sequence was completed in about 5 takes. Each time Walken performed the entire dance through without a stop.
Christopher Walken and Bernadette Peters in a scene from Dennis Potter’s Pennies from heaven. Christopher performs the number Let’s misbehave. Great music, great acting, great dancing. I would like to see a Swedish version of this scene, with Tove Styrke and Claes af Geijerstam.
