X-Men: Apocalypse | Final Trailer Posted at 12:09 PM by Dave Post

Dave Post

So X-Men: Look Up and Scream er. Apocalypse is a month away. It may be that I’m reaching comic book movie adaptation saturation now cause I can’t be bothered to get too excited here. Sure, I’ll go see it, ’cause it’s what you do but I’m not in any hurry. What do you think?

Don’t know anything about the character of Doctor Strange but this looks like a lot of fun and you can’t go wrong with Cumberbatch.

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY Official Teaser Trailer Posted at 11:23 AM by Dave Post

“Reckless, aggressive and undisciplined.” Pretty much sums up the last movie’s production mantra. I’m glad to see the Death Star yet again because it’s not a Star Wars movie with a giant planet killing machine of some sort. All kidding aside, this look pretty cool. What’s with Mark Hamill in the bit at the end?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Official Final Trailer Posted at 2:51 PM by Dave Post

Dave Post

More fighting is good. Jeremy Irons will upstage Ben Affleck in all scenes they do together. Wonder Woman looks oh so very nice. Superman’s face when Batman stops his punch is greatness. I still think it will be a train wreck but I’m hoping it’ll be fun at least.

LeGuin Documentary Starts Kickstarter Campaign Posted at 2:31 PM by Charles Dee Mitchell

Marian Wood Kolisch (American, 1920-2008), Ursula K. Le Guin, 1988, gelatin silver print, Bequest of Marian Wood Kolisch, © Portland Art Museum, 2009.30.35Documentary filmmaker Arwen Curry has worked seven years assembling footage for Worlds of Ursula K. LeGuin. Curry has produced significant documentaries on Susan Sontag and the California architect and designer Charles Eames, but this is her most personal project. She grew up immersed in LeGuin’s fiction, and for this film she has traveled with the author to the many landscapes that inspired her fantastic worlds. Along the way she learned just “how deeply Le Guin’s otherworldly made-up places are informed by real places in the real world. She’s a very rooted writer, and person.”

This film gives us a chance to hear the LeGuin’s voice recounting her “journey of self-discovery as she comes into her own as a major feminist author, inspiring generations of women and other marginalized writers along the way.” Curry also brings in commentary by such figures as Margaret Atwood, Samuel R. Delany, and Karen Joy Fowler.

The National Endowment for the Humanities awarded Worlds of Ursula K. LeGuin a production grant, but those funds will not be released until the filmmakers raise a remaining $80,000. A Kickstarter campaign began on Februrary 1 and runs through the end of the month. It’s a chance to participate in a project that will help define the central role science fiction and speculative literature plays in American society.
