'Interstellar' to be released 2 days early on film
The Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) Christopher Nolan's space epic "Interstellar" will open two days early in theaters projecting the movie on film, rather than digital.
Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. announced the unusual pre-release on Wednesday. "Interstellar" will first play in 225 select North American theaters beginning Nov. 5 ahead of the film's Nov. 7 wide release.
The theaters will play "Interstellar" on either 70mm Imax film, 70mm film or 35mm film. Nolan shot the movie with a combination of 35mm film and 65mm Imax film.
The director has long been a vocal advocate for celluloid, which has been widely phased out of both movie production and projection by digital.
