How They Filmed ‘The Man in the High Castle’ With a ‘Retro-Futurist’ Vibe

22 July 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At Thursday’s Comic-Con panel, Isa Dick Hackett (exec producer and Philip K. Dick’s daughter) promised that we will meet “The Man in the High Castle” in Season 2. Meanwhile, cinematographer James Hawkinson, taking a break from prepping in Vancouver, teased by phone that we can expect more alternate worlds opening up.

Philip K. Dick didn’t believe in reality and it offers so many possibilities for parallel worlds,” offered Hawkinson (“Hannibal”).

This was alluded to at the end of Season 1 with the introduction of mysterious films and physical travel to an alternate timeline by Tagomi (Cary-Hiroyuki Tarawa).

It’s all part of the “retro-futurism” of the Amazon series that received craft noms not only for Hawkinson’s work on the pilot but also for production design, VFX and main title design.

‘The Man in the High Castle’ Season Two Clip: Ridley Scott Introduces New Sdcc Footage

22 July 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ridley Scott and Philip K. Dick are a pairing made in heaven. Dick wrote a novel called “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” and Scott adapted that into a little film called “Blade Runner.” Since last year, Scott has been involved in another adaptation of the late author’s work in the Amazon series “The Man in the High Castle,” which debuted a new look at Season 2 at their Comic-Con panel yesterday.

Scott himself, off in production in Australia, introduced the clip through a video message. The preview features Alexa Davalos’ Juliana Crain as she wakes up in the trunk of car and in the midst of trouble. As she finds a way to pop the lock, all hell breaks loose.

Can Luc Besson’s ‘Valerian’ Succeed Where Recent Space Operas Have Failed?

22 July 2016 6:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Diego — As director Luc Besson and his wife Virginie Besson-Silla laid out in meticulous detail a vision for “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” — based on the French comic series “Valerian and Laureline” — their passion for the heavy genre material was certainly palpable. But it was difficult to ignore the specter of other attempted franchise launches from respected filmmakers that crashed on the rocks of “unproven intellectual property.”

Finding Dory” broke Andrew Stanton out of director jail after his 2012 Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptation “John Carter” forced Disney to take a $200 million write-down. Warner Bros. took a hit on the titanically budgeted “Jupiter Ascending” last year from Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski, after holding it over from 2014 to delay the pain. Unless it’s tied to successful preexisting brands (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”), space opera just seems like a difficult sell these days. »

Meet Rachel Watson, an average worker who, like many of us, fills her daily, monotonous commute by daydreaming of just about anything that catches her eye. Rachel’s main point of interest, though, is a seemingly perfect couple that her train passes each morning – Jess and Jason, as she refers to them – but their idyllic life is masking a dark, unspeakable secret, one that Rachel herself clocks eyes on coming and going from her 9-to-5.

If you’re one of the few still to read Paula Hawkins’ novel of the same name, that’s the arc that underpins The Girl on the Train, a psychological thriller headed up by Edge of Tomorrow and Sicario actress Emily Blunt. And today, the very first, full-length trailer has pulled into the station. Promising a bona fide white-knuckle ride, The Girl on the Train is adapted by Erin Cressida Wilson, while Tate Taylor of »

Image announces intergalatic sci-fi noir Hadrian’s Wall

16 July 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Image Comics has officially announced that Kyle Higgins (C.O.W.L., Nightwing) and Alec Siegel (C.O.W.L., Avengers) are reuniting with artist Rod Reis (C.O.W.L., Justice League) for Hadrian’s Wall, a six-issue sci-fi noir featuring drugs and divorce, crime and conspiracy, and a last chance for redemption in the far reaches of space.

“Hadrian’s Wall is a locked-door murder mystery in outer space,” said Higgins. “This series brings together our favorite parts of noir—cold blooded murder, the P.I. with a checkered past, and political corruption—with an epic, widescreen, science fiction story. This book started with our love for 1970’s and 80’s Sci-Fi, and quickly grew into something much more. From a murdered crew member, to a failed marriage, to a colony that just wants independence, this is a story about broken relationships—what tears people apart, and what it »

Video Game Review – Dex

16 July 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shaun Eddleston reviews Dex…

Dex is a 2D side-scrolling “Metroidvania” RPG with elements of action and stealth, developed by Dreadlocks Ltd and Badland Games. The game is set in a not-too distant, dystopian future where the mega rich live in technologically advanced skyscrapers, the poor live in squalor in the gritty, downtrodden slums across the outskirts of the city of Harbour Prime. Corporations rule over everything, and are all connected to the seriously shady secret society known as “The Complex”. You play as Dex, a young woman that works in Harbour Prime, who suddenly finds herself on the run from The Complex. With the help of a small resistance team, Dex must find out who The Complex are, what they want with her, and how they can be stopped.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that this all sounds very familiar. Aesthetically, Dex will definitely please fans of gritty cyberpunk-themed »
