Less than a week ago, the official Marvel Entertainment Youtube Channel made available the first HD trailer of Ant-Man, the upcoming movie from Marvel Studios which will hit the box offices worldwide in July.
After the movie poster released few days ago, the international trailer of the M. Night Shyamalan upcoming movie is finally out. The Visit, starring Kathryn Hahn, Ed Oxenbould, Erica Lynne Marszalek, Peter McRobbie, Olivia DeJonge, Deanna Dunagan, Benjamin Kanes, Jon Douglas Rainey, Brian Gildea and Shawn Gonzalez, is produced by Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Insidious).
We’re getting really close: Maggie, the brand-new apocaliptic zombie movie directed by Henry Hobson featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin, will be on-air starting May, 8. Schwarzie doesn’t need an intro, but Breslin isn’t a newcomer nonetheless: she’s more an early bird, considering her remarkable performance in the M. Night Shyamalan‘s 2002 movie Signs and, five years later, with a starring role in Little Miss Sunshine. She’s also a zombie flick veteran, as anyone who watched Ruben Fleisher ‘s Zombieland can easily confirm.
The movie, praised at the Tribeca Film Festival, tells the story of a deadly zombie virus who suddendly strikes the world with devastating effects. Schwarzenegger is Wade, a father of a young girl who gets infected: incapable of accepting the truth he chooses to hide her in his house, but the inevitable growth of the disease will bring havoc in the family leading to extreme consequences.
When A Song of Ice and Fire, the worldwide-known fantasy saga written by George R. R. Martin adapted in the HBO’s TV series Game of Thrones, was translated in Japan, publisher Hakayawa commissioned to the renown artist Noriko Meguro to draw some original manga-style artworks for the covers. The artist, as opposite as what HBO casting director did, took inspiration from what was actually written in the book, as most of the characters actually look like they’re described by the author: same eyes, hair & skin color, as well as proper face and body shapes. Not to mention the fact that they’re all looking really cool.
The choice of respecting the physical features and overall appearance of the characters is expecially important in A Song of Ice and Fire, considering that the main plot is strictly related to the inheritance of their somatic traits. Chances are that these drawings will be appreciated by most of the fans who turned their noses against all the fancy wigs (Melisandre), oxygenated hairs (Cersei, Daenerys) and distorted physiognomies (Jon Snow, Salladhor Saan, Asha Greyjoy) depicted in the TV series.
What do you think about them?
I would like to share this spectacular music video by Public Service Broadcasting, a talented electro-rock british duo that, instead of a singer, uses public service audio samples in their songs.
The track is part of The Race for Space full-length album, their second effort, currently one of the top 20 in the british charts. Each one of the nine track featured in the album focus a specific space mission among those made during the space programs who took place during the the cold war between USA and URSS. Go! is dedicated to the Apollo 11, the one that, in the 20th of July 1968, brought Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the moon. According to the authors, all the vocal samples used in the song are part of the mission’s official records.
Here’s the music video: enjoy!
