Steven Spielberg in trattative avanzate con Warner Bros per il kolossal su Mosè


Il settembre scorso vi ho accennato di un progetto della Warner Bros intitolato Gods and Kings che prende spunto dalla vita del personaggio bibblico di Mosè dando uno sguardo ben diverso dal classico I Dieci Comandamenti del 1956.
In trattative con la Warner per la regia era stato accostato il nome di Steven Spielberg, il regista avrebbe dovuto iniziare il suo lavoro con Gods and Kings appena finito di lavorare sui suoi lavori, Lincoln e Robopocalypse, oggi arriva finalmente la conferma delle trattive molto ben avanzate.
Il nuovo adattamento sulla vita di Mosè porterebbe una ventata di epico ad una storia classica come quella del 1956, Mosè sarebbe descritto con un guerriero pronto a tutto per conquistare la parola di Dio, in pratica una sorta di Breavheart, un cuore impavido ai tempi degli egizi. leggi tutto

Meet DARPA’s new generation of robots.

But for all its apparent capacity for work and even mayhem, it was a baby, barely aware of the world and how to move about within it. I watched as an Atlas belonging to one of the teams stared in apparent perplexity at a door handle. With its slightly stooped posture and seemingly stunned inaction, the robot looked like nothing so much as a dunce made to stand in a corner for not learning its lessons properly.

Don’t be fooled. These robots are just trying to lure you into a false sense of superiority.
