Event Cinemas has released the running time for Christopher Nolan's next theatrical release. And it's 169 minutes. To put that in perspective, Inception (also directed by Nolan) was a "mere" 148 minutes. The Dark Knight Rises was 164 minutes long.
This shouldn't surprise many fans, of course. Judging by the trailer, it's clear that Interstellar is shaping to be one of the most epic space operas of all time. Spanning universes and maybe even dimensions, the film will probably make Apollo 13 look like Space Chimps.
The movie centers around a team of explorers who use a wormhole to travel to the far reaches of space. Perhaps to save our own dying planet.
The cast is massive in scale: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine.
