Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Sets Imax 70mm Re-Release for 10th Anniversary This Fall

Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” will be re-released in theaters in honor of the sci-fi epic’s 10th anniversary. The film, which earned an impressive $731 million globally when it debuted in 2014, stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Matt Damon and is set in a dystopian future in which a group of astronauts must travel to the far reaches of space to find a new planet for humankind to colonize.

Paramount Pictures announced the re-release during its presentation to theater owners and executives at CinemaCon, the exhibition industry conference taking place this week in Las Vegas. “Interstellar” will fly back into theaters on Sept. 27, 2024. It will be shown in 70mm Imax prints (Nolan’s preferred format), as well as on digital screens. Warner Bros., which co-produced the movie, will work in coordination with Paramount on the revival.

More from Variety

Nolan recently won best director at this year’s Oscars for “Oppenheimer,” his blockbuster look at the development of the atomic bomb, which also earned best picture. The historical epic earned nearly $1 billion, making it one of the biggest hits of 2023. Nolan’s brainy action adventure “Tenet” also recently got re-released in theaters. The director is one of Hollywood’s most successful filmmakers, having also made “The Dark Knight,” “Inception” and “The Prestige.”

Nolan shot “Interstellar” with a combination of 35mm anamorphic film and 65mm Imax. The picture was released in film formats, which was a herculean task at the time as many theaters had switched over to digital projectors. Nolan has continued to be a champion for film, as well as for Imax. He urged moviegoers to see the movie in 70mm Imax, which led to weeks of sold-out showings.
