Coming very soon to Malaysia: Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar premieres worldwide next week including Malaysia

Both Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno & Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends set to be released here in November 2014

The wait will soon be “ovah” (just imagine Michael Caine talking). Interstellar, the highly anticipated sci-fi film directed and co-written by the great Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight films, Inception, The Prestige, Memento) will be hitting cinemas around the world next Thursday, 6 November (or 7, depending on where you are), and thankfully, Malaysia will be one of the premiering countries, and it’ll be available in IMAX 2D!

The story is set in a future where human’s time on Earth is coming to an end, a team of explorers must travel beyond the galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars. The film is stacked with an all-star cast and production veterans – Oscar-winning actors Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club, The Wolf of Wall Street, Magic Mike) and Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables, The Dark Knight Rises), cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (Her) and music composer Hans Zimmer (12 Years a Slave, Man of Steel, Rush, The Dark Knight films, Inception, too many good ones to name). Regardless what some of the earlier reviews are saying, there’s just no way that this movie would suck.

I wasn’t fortunate enough to be a fan of Rurouni Kenshin. Heck, all these while I thought Samurai X was its actual title and I just found out that the Playstation game I played back in the late 90s had nothing to do with the manga. Anyway, the story is set in the Meiji period focusing on the protagonist Henshin Rurouni (played by Takeru Sato) who helps to those in need to atone for the murders he committed as an assassin at the war. The live action film based on the popular classic was released in 2012 and seemed to have received mostly positive response from both fans and critics around the world, which is surprising to me considering how ridiculous the posters looked.

With success comes two direct sequels for a full trilogy. Both of the sequels were already released in Japan and will make their way to the cinemas here next month. Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno will start showing on 6 November and Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends will follow on 20 November. If you’re like me who has yet to see the first film, I’d advice not to check out the sequel below.
