Finally something new from the production for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar; a brand new poster and matching cover for the UK movie magazine Empire has been released! They both feature McConaughey’s character “Cooper” as he walks in a white, snowy landscape (presumably in space). Be sure to take a look at the cool images by clicking on the previews to the left. We will have scans from the magazine (on newsstands on September 25th) as soon as we can get our hands on a copy. Stay tuned! Interstellar arrives in theaters worldwide on November 7th.
I have updated our photo archive with high-definition screen captures of Matthew McConaughey as Mark Hanna in last year’s The Wolf of Wall Street. Martin Scorsese’s acclaimed film – nominated for 5 Oscars – also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie. McConaughey did a fantastic job with his short screen time, really set the tone for the movie. Click on the previews below to see all the screen captures in full size at our archive, as per usual.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed the very first production still of Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe in The Sea of Trees! Click on the preview to the left to see it in our photo gallery. In the movie, McConaughey plays Arthur, a man who has lost his way in life and treks into the thick forest at the foot of Mount Fuji looking for existential answers. On his journey, he meets a Japanese man (Ken Watanabe), and the two men must bond and work together to survive. Matthew doesn’t want the film to be compared to True Detective, and has a prediction for how audiences will react after seeing it, saying:
“They are very different projects and characters yet they are both poetic. I say another title for this film is ‘You’ve got to go through annihilation to get to salvation’. It’s one hell of a survival story. Everyone is going to leave the theater and have their own walk and talk through the parking lot to muse about its meanings, what it was about and what it wasn’t, what was real and what was a dream.”
Gus Van Sant is directing — currently shooting in rural Massachusetts and then Japan — and it costars Ken Watanabe and Naomi Watts. McConaughey says Gus Van Sant is the right man for the material. “Gus is a wonderful voyeur and a really gentle soul of a man. He’s got the right sensibility for a film like this. He listens and considers any ideas that I throw at him and I undeniably trust the direction he gives me,” he says. “He’s a lot of fun to create with.”
Just as the title says, I have added exactly 100 production stills from various movies Matthew has starred in. These include films such as The Lincoln Lawyer, Mud, Dallas Buyers Club, The Wolf of Wall Street and the upcoming Interstellar. Simply click on the previews below to check out the new stills in their respective albums. Enjoy!
After working on the new version of Matthew McConaughey Online for the past few days, I’m happy to wish you all welcome! I’m Filip, the new owner of the site, and I hope to keep up the great work done by the previous admin, Ashley. To celebrate the re-launch, I made a brand new look for the site and will continue to update the content over the coming week/s. Be sure to browse around and drop a comment before you leave. Thanks!
I have added lots of pictures from the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, that were held two weeks ago today. Matthew McConaughey was nominated for his brilliant work on True Detective, but unfortunately didn’t win, as the award went (deservingly so) to Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston. Even so, Matthew really seemed to enjoy himself throughout the show; check out 156 pictures in our photo archive by clicking on the previews below.
With his reputation as a substantive actor revived, an Oscar in his rec room, Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” on the way and Gus Van Sant’s “Sea Of Trees” now filming, Matthew McConaughey is in the enviable position of having his pick of projects. Two very intriguing offers have now crossed his transom.
Warner Bros. are very keen to get their 3-hour, R-rated adaptation Stephen King’s “The Stand” off the ground, and the studio wants McConaughey to take the key role of Randall Flagg, the evil sorcerer who unleashes mayhem after a plague wipes out most of the world’s population. While we’ll leave to it King fans to determine McConaughey’s merits in the role, that his name has emerged as such makes us wonder if WB aren’t going to greenlight the Josh Boone directed effort unless they get a big name as as an anchor. 3-hour R-rated movies aren’t made often for a reason —they are expensive, and the limited audience means making them successful is a challenge— and the studio may want an A-list talent to entice moviegoers.
Meanwhile, McConaughey is also being courted for the long developing “Gold.” Once attached to Michael Mann and then to Spike Lee, Stephen Gaghan (“Syriana”) is now going to helm this proejct, a “Treasure Of The Sierra Madre”-esque tale based on the true story of the 1993 Bre-X Mineral Corporation scandal. Given how long this project has been developing, this too probably requires an A-list talent. For now, Gaghan will direct the pilot of AMC’s “White City” —”a geopolitical drama following Western diplomats and journalists living in Afghanistan”— as he awaits word about McConaughey.
Which of these will the actor take? Both? Neither?
