Biz Break: Choke On That, Causality! Nolan's Sci-Fi Feature, The Last Man On Earth, And Possible Amnesia
I am not familiar with the comic series/graphic novels/other pretentious words I could use to describe “Y the Last Man.” I only read what I like (*cough* am obsessed with *cough*) and only stumble onto other things through suggestion. Brian K. Vaughan’s series, about the last male on the planet, sounds intriguing and I may need to give it a read before Dan Trachtenberg’s take on it hits theaters. Trachtenberg got his directorial debut through a short film he made called Portal: No Escape, which I have for your viewing pleasure.
Do you think Trachtenberg has what it takes to bring “Y the Last Man” to the screen? To succeed where other directors have failed?
Since the closing entry of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy entered theaters, people have been wondering about the director’s next project. It seems that Nolan will be directing sci-fi written by his brother, Jonathon Nolan, and based on the theories of Kip Thorne. For those not familiar with Kip Thorne, he is a physicist of the gravitational, theoretical, and astrophysical persuasion. He is pals with Stephen Hawking and was pals with Carl Sagan. Jonathan Nolan’s script takes Thorne’s theories about wormholes and time travel on in his script, so we will have alternate dimensions and other trippy things to argue about long after the credits have rolled.
Cindy has already told you that Danny Boyle’s Trance is one of the movies you need to see in 2013. Not to put too strong a point on it, but here is the trailer.
