Let the countdown begin: 608 days remain until we get to see the follow-up to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. announced today that they will release Nolan’s next directorial endeavor, Interstellar, on Nov. 7, 2014 in theaters and IMAX.

In a rare co-distribution plan for the two studios, Paramount will distribute the movie in the U.S. while Warner Bros. will handle the international release. WB-based company Syncopy, which is run by Nolan and his wife, Emma Thomas, will also produce.

Plot details on Interstellar are largely being kept under wraps, but here is what is known: Developed from a script by Nolan’s brother, Jonathan Nolan, the sci-fi movie is a time travel epic based on scientific theories developed by American physicist Kip Thorne, who will executive produce. The press release announcing the distribution news describes the film as “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.”

So maybe this will be the first time travel movie that actually makes some scientific sense? Hell, who cares? Chris Nolan is making a frakkin’ time travel movie!
