‘Interstellar’ Blu-Ray to include a piece of the actual film


If you haven’t seen Interstellar yet, Christopher Nolan’s latest brain melter of a film, stop whatever it is you’re doing right now, buy a ticket, and watch that movie. Don’t worry. We’ll wait.

Still waiting…


Now that you understand the immensity and scope of the film (and also why nobody can make fun of Matthew McConaughey’s romantic comedy laden past anymore), you’ll also understand how despite being released three months ago, the epic film is still running in about 700 theaters all over the country.

The film — which opened up to positive reviews — has earned more than $660 million worldwide, and showcases why Nolan is the blockbuster king with his unique ideas and heavy subject matter.

Paramount is already gearing themselves up for Blu-Ray and DVD release of the film. Though the DVD is just a digital copy of the film, the Blu-Ray offers some pretty sweet bonuses spread out across three discs. As if that weren’t enough, the Blu-Ray copy will also come with a genuine film cell from the original 70MM IMAX reel of the film.

A complete list of the rest of the bonuses can be found here as provided by Screen Crush:
