Exclusive: New Stills From Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Plus Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway on the space epic

It's the year's biggest mystery, but Christopher Nolan's Interstellar will soon be launched upon an unsuspecting world. With just over a month to go, Empire has been through a wormhole and back to retrieve some exclusive images from the new space epic.

As you can see, it's not all space suits and gadgets: we have a beardy Casey Affleck and (non-beardy) Jessica Chastain looking less than thrilled about the dust bowl future they live in; Nolan himself in trademark suit, directing with aplomb; and a tense shot of Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), Brand (Anne Hathaway) and Romilly (David Gyasi) making a disturbing discovery...

In case anyone still harbours any doubt, the new issue of Empire reveals just how grand the film’s ambitions are. As McConaughey says, "This is the grandest adventure I think any of us will ever see on film... This is the biggest film I've ever been a part of. This is one of the biggest films anyone's ever been a part of."

Hathaway concurs. "I am so excited for the world to receive this film, because there's going to be a new conversation I believe will happen because of it." She’s also quick to put to rest any fears of Nolan’s intellect getting in the way of emotions: "It's not a dry, science-based film. It has a pulse. It's got blood in its veins."{Empire Interstellar Newsstand Cover}
