     Well, Nolan seems to be pushing for ambition, but ambition sometimes fails, and leads to polarizing results, or even just flat-out failed attempts. Since we don’t know much about the project, ancipation will build up, but will it build up too high? Could Interstellar be Nolan’s first big bomb?

    this is going to be a big Box Office success no matter what. Whether or not it gets critical acclaim remains to be seen, but Nolan has had a long string of hits , so there is virtually no way this doesn’t make money.

    I’d say there’s a 2% chance it bombs. Look at the cast. Look at the grosses for Nolan’s last three movies. Not going to happen.

    Unless you are talking about quality? I don’t see that happening either. I think all of Nolan’s projects have been ambitious to some extent. Yeah, maybe this is the most ambitious. But I think he can handle it.

    Now that they have built up ginormous fanbases, Nolan and Tarantino films will never bomb.

    Just waiting for that to happen to Paul Thomas Anderson…

    Judging by the trailer, it seems to have an ‘artier’ edge than some of his blockbusters, so I’d say there’s half a chance it could be a BO disappointment. But I trust audiences’ intelligence (assuming it’s well received). I reckon this could be the 6th film in a row to win Oscars for cinematography and visual effects – Hoyte van Hoytema (Her, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) is the DP.

    Interstellar is currently slated as a Fall release and therefore has less pressure to perform like a Summer blockbuster. It could certainly fail and the online cult of Nolan won’t be able to save it with the public if it fails to connect with them.

    There is a 2008 screenplay on the internet written by Nolan’s brother. Spielberg was supposed to direct it back then. Apparently, Christopher and bro. have extensively re-written the screenplay. The old screenplay was a far more ‘humanist’ exercise than some of Nolan’s more recent, 100% story-driven work. The main character Cooper is obviously drawn from Gary Cooper. Cooper totally dominated the first screenplay – you could see why Spielberg would want to direct it, he’s an iconic hero type. Who knows what changes Nolan has made?

    Has Nolan ever had a “flop” from all the films he’s done to this day? I don’t think so. Even if people tear apart Interstellar, it will be highly successful nonetheless. I mean, look at the box office numbers of the critically panned Transformers live action series.

    I think the real question is will the OP fix the typo in the thread title?

    Unlikely.  Commerically, Nolan’s track record speaks for itself, with The Dark Knight trilogy and especially with Inception. That film particularly showed that he has drawing power outside of Batman (yes, Inception has DiCaprio, but still). Creatively, that is less certain. For me, Nolan’s non-Batman films post 2005 (The Prestige, Inception) have not lived up to the hype, especially the latter. But I’m hopeful with this one, especially with the cast he’s assembled (McConaughey, Hathaway, Chastain etc.)

    The Prestige only made $50M domestic (plus $55M international) off of a budget of $40M. It was probably still profitable, but it wasn’t a smash hit.

    I’d say The Prestige isn’t a good barometer. Nolan became a household name from The Dark Knight. Hard to believe he’ll ever flop now, at least not for a long time.
