Folks in Hollywood seem to trust director Christopher Nolan to crank out films that'll grab box office bucks. His latest effort, Interstellar, hits movie theaters next week, and it cost a whopping $165 million to make. According to The Wall Street Journal's Ben Fritz, the last non-franchise film to shell out that much was Nolan's 2010 film Inception. The filmmaker seems to get whatever he needs to craft his movies, with the trust that he'll keep his streak of success going.
