Wednesday’s Weekday Quote

Posted: November 12, 2014 by Blaine Grimes in Uncategorized

Josh Larsen shared some thought-provoking insights on Interstellar and a theology of Imax over at Think Christian today:

Interstellar left me wanting in many respects, but the movie does come through in one big way. Very big. The use oInterf larg-screen Imax imagery not only nearly saves the picture, it also reveals some of the theological implications at the heart of this particular piece of movie technology.

Co-written and directed by Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises), Interstellar includes sequences and individual shots that were captured with Imax cameras, allowing them to be projected, in full, onto gargantuan screens. (The theater at Chicago’s Navy Pier, where I saw Interstellar, has a screen measuring 60 feet tall by 86 feet wide.) And so this story – about an astronaut (Matthew McConaughey) sent through a wormhole to find a new world for the people of a dying Earth – gets an appropriately sized canvas.
