I don't know why but I keep picturing a more modestly scaled sci-drama. Like, think Alex Garland, or even Children of Men.
I even listened to an interview with Jonah recently where he said Never Let Me Go was his brother's favorite movie that year it came out.
Because this belief that this is some humongous 500 million dollar movie with an A-list star cast seems more and more unrealistic. You can't keep those things a secret and filming is super close. Interstellar was announced seven months before cameras started to roll.
