Early Buzz Has First Audiences Loving Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’

Early Buzz Has First Audiences Loving Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’
Germain Lussier — Film »

Over the past few days, the film has begun screening for general audiences, celebrity audiences and press alike. Attendees are usually embargoed from going on social media about early screenings but that very rarely stops people. And if the reactions are positive, studios usually don’t care.

“…the problem has always been the studios,” Lucas told Charlie Rose on “CBS This Morning.” “Although the beginning of the studios, the entrepreneurs who ran the studios were sort of creative guys. They would just take books and turn them into movies and do things like that. Suddenly all these corporations were coming in. They didn’t know anything about the movie business.”

James Cameron Spills Beans on How Schwarzenegger Can Be In New Terminator
Matt Singer — The Dissolve »

“I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold. I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age.
