The actor stars as Cooper, who joins a team of explorers on a lengthy journey into outer space to save planet Earth. He is joined by a stellar supporting cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow and Topher Grace in this highly-anticipated sci-fi adventure, arriving in theaters November 7. Take a look at the magazine cover below, then read on for more details from director Christopher Nolan.

<strong><em>Interstellar</em></strong> Empire Magazine Cover

Christopher Nolan first made a name for himself with the inventive indie drama Memento, which used a non-linear narrative to tell that story in an incredibly unique way. The filmmaker revealed that Interstellar, on the other hand, has a more classic narrative structure.

"It's a very classically constructed movie, but the freshness of the narrative elements really enhance it. I liken it to the blockbusters I grew up with as a kid, family films in the best sense: edgy, incisive, challenging."

When asked about comparisons to his last sci-fi effort, the 2010 mind-bending blockbuster Inception, the filmmaker reveals Interstellar is almost a complete opposite of that film.

"It's almost a mirror image of Inception. It expands out in the way Inception contracts inwards."
