The Interstellar (2014) was successful at the box office, earning more than $672 million globally. But when it came to the convoluted climax of the expansive and grandiose sci-fi epic, which was even broken down in detail back in November, many fans were left perplexed. The Blu-ray and DVD releases arrived from Paramount on March 31. On April 1, screenwriter Jonathan Nolan and producer/science adviser Kip Thorne attended a media event at Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Lab to promote the release. Jonathan Nolan said that the original conclusion was “much more straightforward.”
It can be proclaimed that there is no surprise in Christopher Nolan’s often labyrinthine endings from the Action scientific thriller, Inception in 2010 to the mind-twisting and Jaw gripping 2020’s Tenet. Some fans speculated that it might be a deliberate open ending so that the ending and its speculation differs from person to person. However, that was not the case. Additionally, it seems as though Interstellar protected itself from a more horribly depressing conclusion.
In order to convey the information gathered on the significance of gravity back to Earth, Matthew McConaughey’s Cooper sends himself into the Gargantua black hole at the conclusion of Interstellar. He finds himself in “the 5th dimension,” sometimes referred to as the “tesseract,” which he utilizes to virtually travel back in time and get in touch with his daughter while she is still a young child. Jonathan Nolan revealed that there was no “tesseract” at all when asked about the original ending.
The author went on to say that his brother Christopher Nolan had the idea to include the tesseract, but Jonathan Nolan’s original conclusion did not feature time travel or Cooper going home. Although Jonathan Nolan declined to provide further details about his conclusion, it appears that it was considerably darker than how it was depicted in the film.
