Early last week, Paramount announced that they were to become a film studio that no longer uses film. Christopher Nolan heard this and was all like, “Bitch, please.”
Thus, Paramount has bent their new rule to make an exception in the case of Nolan. His next film, Interstellar, will get to call itself a film as the studio will release both digital and film prints. Once again, Nolan shot the project with a combination of 35mm and IMAX so that we can all pay higher ticket prices and stay up late to look at pretty images of outer space and Matthew McConaughey’s face getting all stretched out in a wormhole.
Paramount also teases that exceptions will be made in the future for other directors as well. This decisions will be based on which films the studio thinks audiences will be willing to pay more to see. (LA Times)
