Interstellar: 8 cool trivia about Christopher Nolan's epic movie

One of the finest science fiction movies ever made, 'Interstellar' possesses some awesome trivia that will blow your mind. Christopher Nolan's epic sci-fi movie 'Interstellar' is one of the most complex and visually stunning movies in recent time. The film revolves around Cooper who along with other astronauts, is sent into the outer space to find a habitable planet in some other galaxy. While the plot primarily talks about the survival of the human species and deals with a lot of physics concepts like time dilation, wormhole, black hole, artificial gravity etc.; the movie is finally more about human love than science. The screenplay of 'Interstellar' is based on the works of physicist Kip Thorne. Kip Thorne is a professor at California Institute of Technology. He received Nobel prize for Physics in 2017. Nolan teamed up with Thorne for the movie and the rest is history. The best thing about 'Interstellar' is that it is scientifically 100% accurate. Dr. Thorne suggested the makers to strictly follow two rules: i) Nothing would cross the established physics laws. ii) Any weird speculation would have to come from the mind of a scientist, not from a screenwriter. Nolan agreed to the rules on the condition that they would not create a problem in the screenplay or the filmmaking process. Dr. Thorne collaborated with VFX supervisor Paul J. Franklin and his team to create the black hole and wormhole. He gave them pages of theoretical equations. Based on those equations, the VFX team then developed new CGI software programs to create the accurate imaging. The end result surprised Thorne as it's theoretically absolutely correct. 'Interstellar' is a tribute to Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece movie '2001: A Space Odyssey'. While filming in Iceland for the ice planet scene, Anna Hathaway suffered from hypothermia as her astronaut suit got opened in the ice-cold water. One of the most notable things about 'Interstellar' is its breathtaking soundtrack by Hans Zimmer. In Miller's planet scene, the ticks in the background soundtrack happen every 1.25 seconds. This means each 'tick' we hear is an entire day passing on Earth. Steven Spielberg was originally supposed to direct this film in 2006. He even hired Jonathan Nolan to develop the script. But, as Spielberg finally didn't continue to work on the movie, Jonathon suggested his brother Christopher Nolan to helm this project. To make the farm look realistic, Nolan actually planted a 500-acre cornfield. When the shooting was completed, he sold the crops and made a profit. 'Interstellar' is a masterpiece in true sense. It has won numerous awards including an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects in 2015.
