Director: Christopher Nolan
In Earth's future, a global crop blight and second Dust Bowl are slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Professor Brand (Michael Caine), a brilliant NASA physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth's population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, Brand must send former NASA pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind's new home.

- Matt Damon was not included in the promotion for the film. His name was not mentioned, and he did not attend any of the premieres. In fact, apart from an article in "Variety" announcing his casting as an "unspecified role", his role was kept secret until the release of the film.
- Anne Hathaway suffered from hypothermia while filming in Iceland, due to the fact that her astronaut suit was open, while filming scenes in the icy water.
- The wormhole explanation using paper and pen is exactly the same as it appears in Event Horizon (1997).
- Steven Spielberg, who was attached to direct the film in 2006, and hired Jonathan Nolan to write the screenplay, chose other projects instead. In 2012, after Spielberg's departure, Jonathan Nolan suggested the project to his brother Christopher Nolan.
