Christopher Nolan mounts an IMAX camera to a Learjet for Interstellar

Expect some stunning visuals

Christopher Nolan may not be much of an advocate of 3D filmmaking, but he has long been a fan of shooting in IMAX, with The Dark Knight Rises including about an hour’s worth of footage in the large-screen format.

And from the looks of the latest on-set images from upcoming film Interstellar, it seems as though Nolan is exploring how to push the technology further than ever before…

The main problem with IMAX cameras is that they are big, noisy and extremely unwieldy to shoot with. However, Nolan seems to have found a way to counteract all that by strapping his to the nose of a Learjet!

Needless to say, the resulting footage promises to be rather spectacular. If you were blown away by the opening sequence of The Dark Knight Rises, expect more of the same here…

Directed by Nolan and starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and a whole host of others, Interstellar will open in the UK on 7 November 2014.

What do you think of Nolan's latest scheme? Tell us, below!

      I can't wait for the day when Nolan will be able to shoot a whole movie in IMAX.

      I never actually got to see TDK or TDKR in IMAX - how much of a difference does it actually make to the experience. Anyone see both versions and have an opinion on the comparisson?

      The only movie I've seen at the IMAX was Avatar. However you can notice the IMAX shots in The Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises Blu Rays, they cover the whole screen and look incredible.
