We thought it necessary to commemorate here at BuzzHub that today, November 7, marks the anniversary of one of the finest films of our lifetime (our lifetime having begun in May 2012): Christopher Nolan’s epic, profound, heartbreaking sci-fi Interstellar.
Although the film itself is, unsurprisingly, a complete mystery, Warner Bros. Pictures has set Christopher Nolan’s next movie for release on Friday, July 21, 2017. The film will arrive just one week after 20th Century Fox’s War of the Planet of the Apes and just one week before Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ new Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man film, starring Tom Holland.
The 2015 Jameson Empire Awards took place at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel this afternoon, hosted by The Hobbit star James Nesbitt, and it was Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar which took home the top prizes of Best Film and Best Director. Rosamund Pike won Best Actress for her work in Gone Girl, and Andy Serkis was deservedly recognised in the Best Actor category for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Paramount Home Entertainment Media Distribution has announced today that Christopher Nolan’s hit film Interstellar will debut on Digital HD March 17 and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand March 31.
Still showing in select theatres, 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.
With the movie theater business booming, last week’s big budget blockbusters were transplanted by a comedy sequel twenty years in the making as the Farrelly Brothers reunited Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels for Dumb and Dumber To, which burst into 3,154 theaters with an estimated $38 million. That’s Jim Carrey’s biggest opening weekend since 2003’s Bruce Almighty, which opened with $68 million over Memorial Day, and it’s the Farrelly Brothers’ biggest opening ever, grossing more in its first three days than a few of their recent movies have grossed in total.
Walt Disney Studios Animation opened their latest animated movie, the superhero action-adventure Big Hero 6, in 3,761 theaters on Thursday night. After grossing an estimated $15.8 million on Friday, it had a strong Saturday bump from family business to bring its weekend total to an estimated $56.2 million. With families making up 72% of its business, split evenly between male and female, and an “A” CinemaScore, the movie should continue to do well between now and Thanksgiving. Big Hero 6 added another $7.6 million in 17 international markets in its third weekend overseas bringing its total outside North America to $23 million.
