Man ‘can’t unsee’ what he thought was a simple mistake in the movie Interstellar

Man ‘can’t unsee’ what he thought was a simple mistake in the movie Interstellar

Interstellar's plot could be a lot different to what you originally thought

Interstellar was a film for the ages, and with Christopher Nolan directing, it’s surely perfect in every way… or is it?

According to one avid fan and TikToker, he’s noticed a ‘mistake’ during post-production, and - apparently - it changes the entire plot.

Now, for anyone who hasn’t watched the 2014 space flick starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, you’re missing out.

Set around a space expedition that goes wrong, it’s something that is packed with cinematic art and mind-blowing visuals throughout. There's no wonder it scooped the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects in 2015.

The synopsis reads: “When Earth becomes uninhabitable in the future, a farmer and ex-NASA pilot, Joseph Cooper, is tasked to pilot a spacecraft, along with a team of researchers, to find a new planet for humans.”

But it’s two scenes in particular that TikToker @stark_verse claimed were carbon copies.

He explained: “I just re-watched Interstellar, and I noticed what seemed like a mistake.

“I just cannot unsee this.”

The scenes in particular was a specific shot of Cooper’s aircraft right before he crashes in his dream and then again when the team enters Miller’s planet’s atmosphere.

The man added: “At first I thought this was a mistake, but then I realised, this is Christopher Nolan. Christopher Nolan wouldn’t reuse the same footage without a purpose.”

This caused him to dig deeper into what it could mean.

He realised that he was looking at the scene from a different perspective than it should be regarded, and that the opening sequence where the initial shot is used depicts a crash that nobody ‘should realistically survive’.

This led him to believe that Cooper actually died at the beginning of the movie, which to him, explained a lot of different components in the film.

For example, he went on the note that they referenced Cooper’s death during the Lazarus mission which hints that he is on a journey through the unknown- aka, the afterlife.

On another note, did you know that Lazarus means ‘God has helped’ in Hebrew? And that he was brought back to life by Jesus, according to the Bible.

Just a food for thought when you think about this theory where Cooper is stuck travelling through purgatory to the afterlife.

Anyway, the TikToker thought similarly, referencing the ‘big sleep’ analogy in the film which the crew mentions several times throughout the film.

The big sleep = death.

He also talked about Cooper travelling to the afterlife after going through Gargantua’s black hole, and his daughter, Murph is suddenly shown on the tesseract.

The TikToker believes that the whole plot symbolises Cooper’s journey through to the afterlife, which is why at the end of the video, when he enters a room to find his daughter, now elderly and on her deathbed, he’s there to greet her - looking exactly as he did when he died all those years before.

Apparently, it's also why nobody in the room acknowledges him, except his dying daughter, who he’ll welcome to the afterlife.

It really does put a completely different spin on the story and throws out the time warp of Miller’s Planet.

What do you think about the theory?
