robopocalypse

You are designed to want something that will hurt you. And you cannot help wanting it. You cannot stop wanting it. It is in your design. And when you finally find it, this thing will burn you up. This thing will destroy you.

Chris Hemsworth has gone from a relatively unknown actor when he starred in 2011’s Thor to now landing male leads in some high profile films, with the last one being Ron Howard’s racing film, Rush. Now, according to Deadline Hemsworth has landed the male lead in Steven Spielberg’s next major tentpole, the technological thriller, Robopocalypse. The film is set to open in theaters April 25, 2014.  

Because you are designed to want something that will hurt you. And you cannot help wanting it. You cannot stop wanting it. It is in your design. And when you finally find it, this thing will burn you up. This thing will destroy you.

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

“In 3-D space you’re doing maneuvers, so that’s very complex. The other part of it is the ability to disaggregate and re-aggregate components,” he said.
