Episode 26: Interstellar

This week we leap to Mike’s second film choice, 2014 epic sci-fi Interstellar. We leapt here through Matthew McConaughey who is fast becoming a Cinematic Leap favourite. 

Season 1, Episode 26

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Matthew McConaughey

From: Sahara

Chosen by:
Actor (Mike)
Film (Mike)

Matthew McConaughey played treasure hunter Dirk Pitt in 2005’s Sahara, the same year he was voted sexiest man alive by People magazine. He went on to We Are Marshall the following year, and then in 2014 he appeared as astronaut Cooper in Interstellar. By 2014 the sexiest man alive was Chris Hemsowrth.

Where are we leaping to?

Systems engineer: Rodrigo Bernado 

To: Hot Fuzz

Chosen by:
Crew (Mike)
Film (Mike)

In our most questionable leap yet, Mike chooses systems engineer Rodrigo Bernado. What does a systems engineer even do on a film? No one knows! And can you leap to one of their other films because you enjoyed their systems engineering on one you just saw? Mike thinks so, and so we leap to classic Edgar Wright comedy Hot Fuzz!
