Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is set to open this Friday and, in anticipation of that, Paramount has just released a new featurette that discusses the director’s decision to use film.
“Go behind-the-scenes on a year-long initiative to see the lengths one team was willing to go to bring a vision to life. Join Christopher Nolan, Hoyte van Hoytema and the IMAX team as they document the process involved for the IMAXÂ® 70mm film release of Interstellar, which involved hundreds of people, 20 tons of film prints, and countless hours of planning, installation, testing and training.”
“Continuing the legacy begun by IMAX trailblazer Christopher Nolan and his use of the 15 perf 65mm IMAXÂ® cameras in The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, Nolan has captured more than an hour ofInterstellar using IMAXÂ® cameras. These specific sequences will expand to fill the entire screen exclusively in IMAXÂ® theatres with breathtaking image quality and scope for a truly immersive experience.
Sequences of Interstellar filmed in 35mm will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX ExperienceÂ® with proprietary IMAX DMRÂ® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAXâ€™s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.”
Stay tuned, right here to Latino-Review for my official Interstellar review. I’ll be publishing it tomorrow (Wednesday). For now all I can say, and it works hand-in-hand with this featurette: It sure is pretty.
