Award-winning actor Sir Michael Caine considers director Christopher Nolan to be his "lucky charm", having enjoyed success working together on films like 'Inception'

Sir Michael Caine considers director Christopher Nolan to be his "lucky charm".

The 81-year-old actor and Nolan, 44, have worked together on six films - including 'Inception' and the 'Batman' franchise - and Caine lauded the achievements of his collaborator during 'A Night Out With... Sir Michael Caine' at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Wednesday (01.10.14).

Speaking at the event, Caine reflected on their new sci-fi movie 'Interstellar', saying : "By all accounts he's done it again, Christopher Nolan, three 'Batmans', 'Inception' and... another one. I think he's brilliant."

The 'Zulu' star - who appeared at the event in aid of the NSPCC, which helps disadvantaged children - continued: "Failure doesn't worry people cause you have to get up and dust yourself off. I've never worried about a movie that failed, I never had any money in them anyway.

"Me and Christopher have now done six movies. He always says I'm his lucky charm and I'm always saying he's my lucky charm. It's been an incredible ride."

'Interstellar', which centres on a team of space travelers who travel through a wormhole, features a star-studded cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain.

Asked what people can expect from 'Interstellar', Caine told BANG Showbiz: "Fans can expect something entirely different from what we've done before like Inception and Batman.

"Take my word for it, the film is going to be extraordinary. I haven't seen it yet, I'm seeing it this week but from what I hear it's fantastic. It's no surprise to me because I think Nolan is the best British director since David Lynne."
