'Interstellar' Writer Really Thinks Humans Need to Leave Earth

The new film Interstellar is now in theaters everywhere and audiences will finally be seeing Christopher Nolan‘s new space travel film.

The movie follows a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Screenwriter Jonathan Nolan chatted with BuzzFeed about the elements of the story and why he thinks humans really need to leave Earth one day.

“There may come a moment when the earth shrugs us off like a dog shrugging off a tick, and that has happened, over and over again,” Jonathan said. “Given the fossil record, one thing you know for sure: At some point, we’re f–ked. Right? At some point, we’re done. And we’ve either, at that point, figured out how to survive elsewhere, or that’s it; that’s the end of the story.”

He then said the Earth is “a place that, ultimately, you have to leave. Take us or leave us, we’re the only game in town, in terms of life. Right here. If that matters to you, on any level, then we need to get the f–k outta here.”

Jonathan was asked when and he answered, “Well, now.”

    why do these polls add extra opinions to the answers. Yes I will most likely watch it but I CAN wait. Will probably watch it right before they take it away.

    Well, ugh silicone life forms, no thanks, jumping the gun? They haven’t started the era of hydrogen (2015) and that will end up being sold in cartridges instead of at the pump.

    Didnt like it, long boring beginning, a bit of action in the middle and weird ending.

    Maybe silicone and water girlfriends like Scooby Doo and Shaggy have.

    Bit of botox & you’d be a pretty sort, sweet darlin…
