Christopher Nolan Has Written An ‘Interstellar’ Comic

Christopher NolanHave you seen the movie Interstellar? Director Christopher Nolan (pictured, via) wrote a comic to reveal a back story for two characters: Dr. Mann (played by Oscar winner Matt Damon) and his robot SKIPP.

Wired posted “Absolute Zero” in its entirety on the magazine’s website. The 7 page comic will also appear in the print edition; Nolan is serving as the guest editor for this issue which focuses on themes of time, space, and multiple dimensions. Animator Sean Gordon Murphy created the artwork for this project.

Here’s more about the comic book: “Before Cooper left his daughter to find humanity a new home in space, there were the Lazarus missions. Led by Dr. Mann, this was NASA’s first attempt to locate a hospitable exoplanet. So what happened to Mann on the other side of the wormhole? We teamed Christopher Nolan with award-winning comic-book artist Sean Gordon Murphy to tell Mann’s story.” (via The Hollywood Reporter)

Coen Brothers Adapt ‘True Grit’ by Charles Portis: Trailer

Directors Joel and Ethan Coen have adapted True Grit, a stark Western written by Charles Portis. The movie comes out in December, but the full trailer is embedded above.

The film stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin. The goosebump-inducing trailer has already earned well over 426,000 views on YouTube. What do you think? In 1969, the novel was adapted into a classic John Wayne movie.

Here’s Gawker’s take: “There’s definitely a fear there that the whole thing will feel like too much of a rehash of No Country for Old Men, just with the clock set back a hundred years or so, but even it if it does, who cares? That movie was great! Jeff Bridges is great! And, most importantly, longtime Coen collaborator Roger Deakins, America’s greatest living cinematographer, is so, so great.”
