CHRISTOPHER Nolan’s career was inspired by ‘Star Wars’.
The 44-year-old film-maker is responsible for some of the most eye-catching movies in recent years, including ‘Inception’ and ‘Interstellar’, and he’s revealed the influence ‘Star Wars’ creator George Lucas had on his chosen path in life.
He explained, “I went to the movies a lot as a kid. That first Star Wars, that George Lucas directed, came out in 1977 when I was seven years old. It made a huge impression on me, in terms of the scope of it and the idea that you could create an entirely different experience for the audience, literally any world, more than one world, a whole different galaxy.
Nolan knew what he wanted to do for a living very early in his life.
He told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’d already started playing around with my dad’s Super 8 camera, making little war films and stuff. And then, after Star Wars, my films all became space films. – BANG!
