Any sci-fi, space, and/or space opera fans out there? How about fans of Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and/or Jessica Chastain? Then you don’t want to miss a live Google+ Hangout with several YouTube celebrities and the cast from Nolans’s new film Interstellar on November 5, 2014 at 5:30PM EST.
Hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier, the hour-long session will be livestreamed from the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. McConaughey, Hathaway, and Chastain will be talking about the release of Interstellar, answering fan questions, and previewing clips from the film exclusively for the Hangout attendees.
Additionally, a select group of YouTubers will be joining in the conversation from around the world. Expect to see VSauce3, DJ Flula, Casey Neistat, Anna Akana, and What’s Trending’s Shira Lazar show up in the Hangout. NASA astronomer Natalie Batalha will also make an appearance.
The marketing intiative is part of a larger effort by Google and Paramount Pictures to give moviegoers a more immersive experience. The two companies partnered to deliver and promote various Interstellar-related materials on the internet giant’s platforms, such as Google for Education, Google+, Google Play, and YouTube. Additionally, fans who stop by the Hangout will have access to the Interstellar Showcase app, which will presumably make it very easy for them them to purchase tickets for the film.
Interstellar tells the story of space explorers who must find out whether or not humans can travel outside the galaxy, as time on Earth is quickly coming to an end. The film stars McConaughey, Hathaway, and Chastain alongside Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, and Michael Caine. The film will show in select theatres on November 5, 2014, and then open nationwide on November 7.
