I've heard that the reviews so far have been middling, which suggests the film isn't being nearly as well received as Nolan's predecessors. I was never referring to box office performance or Oscar capabilities. I was referring to the potential for it not being the critically acclaimed eighteenth-coming of Christopher Nolan.
The Variety review of Interstellar today was ecstatic. The Hollywood Reporter was more mixed but greatly admired the movie's scope and ambition. Even if it doesn't get Gravity-level raves across the board, those trade notices suggest it will definitely have some fans among critics.
