Zendaya once expressed her admiration for one of Nolan’s sci-fi films. “I have a serious obsession.”

“I need to go somewhere and contemplate life”, Zendaya said.

Today, Zendaya is a big star of both the big and small screen. We can still watch her in the second part of the Dune saga, where she plays one of the main roles – Chani. Zendaya’s co-star in the movie is Timothée Chalamet, who had prior experience with science fiction cinema before Dune: he had a relatively small role in Nolan’s Interstellar.

Interestingly, Zendaya herself once expressed her admiration for the work of the British director on her social media, writing:

Interstellar might be the best movie I’ve ever seen…..I need to go somewhere and contemplate life. (…) I have a serious obsession with Interstellar like I really love that dang movie

Quentin Tarantino also spoke positively about Nolan’s film some time ago. Let’s remind ourselves of his words:

“We’re waiting for the movie to start and it hit me. I realized that it hadn’t been since The Matrix that I was actually that interested in seeing a movie even though I didn’t know what I was going to see. It’s been a while since somebody has come out with such a big vision to things. Even the elements, the fact that dust is everywhere, and they’re living in this dust bowl that is just completely enveloping this area of the world. That’s almost something you expect from [Andrei] Tarkovsky or [Terrence] Malick, not a science fiction adventure movie.”

In Interstellar, humanity on Earth is coming to an end due to climate change, and a group of scientists discovers a spacetime tunnel that enables the search for a new home. The movie starred Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine, among others. The production hit screens in 2014.
