In a sci-fi movie landscape overrun with CGI, Christopher Nolan is known for taking a more practical approach to special effects, building actual sets, puppets and more to bring some of his films' stunning visuals into being with less digital assistance than is the norm. That being the case, it's always fun to take a look behind the curtain and see how it's done. 

Take Interstellar, for example. Opinions on the film varied pretty wildly, but there was no denying the quality of its design and the way in which it brought space, and what it could be like to live in it, to life. With the movie set for home video release on March 31, one of the things we're most excited about is the idea of going inside the process of putting it all together without, you know, actually shooting in space. With that in mind, we're offering up this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip showing some of the work that went into creating a convincing zero-G experience for Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon and the rest of the film's cast. 

If you're looking for more, you'll be able to see it when Interstellar hits Blu-ray and DVD on March 31.
