The Ending Of Interstellar Finally Explained

Directed by Christopher Nolan, Interstellar is a fantastic tale of time, space, and love. But if you got a bit lost in the final act of the film, we wouldn’t blame you. So let’s do our best to walk through the bizarre, mind-bending ending of Interstellar.

Life on Earth isn't great in Interstellar. Massive dust storms are tearing up the planet, crops are failing, and soon, humanity will cease to exist. Looking for answers, NASA turns to the skies, hoping for some kind of insight.

As we learn at the beginning of the film, a group of 12 scientists traveled through a mysterious wormhole that appeared near Saturn, to see if the 12 planets on the other side could sustain human life. A few years later, the Endurance and its crew including Matthew McConaughey's Cooper and Anne Hathaway's Brand are going to visit the three most promising planets in the hopes of colonizing one. When they arrive on Dr. Mann's planet, the heroic scientist assures them his icy cold spot is the perfect place for humans to live.

Unfortunately, it's soon all revealed to be a ruse. Although each of the original 12 scientists knew their trip was one-way, Mann admits he never fully considered the possibility that his planet would be uninhabitable, and that he might die alone. Although he resisted the urge for years, he eventually falsified his survey data to coax another team to travel to his planet, intending to use the Endurance to escape.

At this point, Mann is so desperate to leave that he'll do anything, even kill. Paranoid that the Endurance crew won't go along with his plan once they learn what he's done, Mann attempts to kill Cooper so he can make his getaway.

Back on Earth, Cooper's now-grown children find themselves at odds. His daughter, Murph, played by Jessica Chastain, has realized the surface of our planet has become uninhabitable. So naturally, she's trying to persuade her brother, Tom, to bring his family to the secret NASA facility where she's been working on the gravitational equation that would allow humanity to escape into space en masse.

But despite Murph's warnings, Tom refuses to abandon the farmhouse where they grew up. After Cooper left them in their grandfather's care when they were children, never to be heard from again, Tom lost all faith in NASA's ability to help them.

    There's a hole in the plot if future humans need to use future technology to influence the past in order to survive, because first time around they wouldn't have had future people had they not survived, which they would'nt have without the help of future people. Therefore the plot only makes sense it 'They' aren't future humans but are another species.

    There is still one major issue I have with this movie. Why should it be more efficient to build a space station than to build a protective station on earth. Having all necessary tools and resources already there. Also 5 dimensions with gravity being one of them doesn't really make sense, in terms of physics, time and energy and gravity should be rather derivative from the same origin.

    What exactly is explained here? NOTHING. This clip is only stating the obvious. For whom? The people who fell asleep in the cinema, probably. All the non-sense used by plot writers as glue is NOT explained here. And there is a lot. Why should a super-race-from-the-future use such stupid way of communication? So, they are capable of creating huge constructs somewhere in some other galaxy, "just so", but then you have to send some morse code to a child? Yeah, very convenient. Okay, maybe they have limited capabilities in the other galaxy... but then again, they can beam Cooper across galaxies and time, right into a location where he is kinda expected. Are you kidding me? That is not exciting, that is just STUPID. Only a prelude to make a huge drama about the final meeting with this aged daughter. And nobody there wonders why their grandpa appears out of nothing. How convincing, oh boy.

    I want to preface this small complaint about the story by saying this is one of my favorite movies of all time and it hands down has the most impactful soundtrack I have ever heard. Phenomenal film. But there is an inconsistency in the logic of the story that cannot be overlooked. If "they" are the descendants of the human race that Cooper saves by transmitting the data back to earth, then how could "they" exist in the future to help Cooper in the first place? If the wormhole and the tesseract inside gargantua had not already been placed there for Cooper, he could not have reached the other galaxy and subsequently obtained the data to send back to earth that would enable them to create the wormhole and the tesseract that save humanity in the first place. The effect is the cause of the cause. The movie made much more sense logically when it assumed “they” were extraterrestrial. That logical fallacy aside, almost a perfect movie.

    Best movie I have ever seen to date. When I was watching it, I was confused, but I still kind of understood what was happening. It does an amazing job of giving the viewer just enough basic knowledge, paired with the loads of scientific terminology, to figure out what is happening at the same time the characters are. This made it feel all the more real while I watched it, and I felt like I was right there with Cooper.
