Quale modo migliore per festeggiare il settimo anniversario del mio trasferimento qui su WordPress che il nuovo fantastico trailer di Battle Angel Alita, dove finalmente abbiamo l’opportunità di ammirare Gally in azione nell’arena del Motorball… e che azione!!! Aspettare fino al 14 Febbraio sarà mooooolto lunga…….
Gunnm, alas Battle Angel Alita, is one of my favourite manga: it’s the one with whom I’ve started reading and loving manga and anime, along with Akira, Crying Freeman and Ghost in The Shell, back in the Ninenties. As you can see, I’m into cyberpunk and tecnology, like A LOT. So I’ve awaited patienly for the Cameron’s project, a live version of Yukito Kishiro’s manga, and I despised with all my heart Avatar (which I DIDN’T like) and its always announced and delayed sequels, because they delayed Cameron’s attention from THE project I cared so much about, and I so eagerly awaited. But of course, James made zillion of dollars with his 3D-enhanced “creature”, and therefore Alita went down into the… scrapyard, pun intended. Luckily Roberto Rodriguez took in his hands the project, with Cameron as producer, and I was happy enough, because this summer my LONG wait should have come to an end.
BUT, like in a thriller well conceived, full of last-minute twist and turn, then came the SIX-MONTH delay, and the new due date, 12 December in US, 26 December in UK, and 1 January 2019 here in Italy… for now, my appetite is satisfied, with a little glimpse, but satisfactory enough to most of the main location of the manga, like The Scrapyard, Zalem, and The Factory. And for an instant, we can also see Gally in her shining Motorball Suit with the Damascus Blades.
From Yorgos Lanthimos, greek director of The Lobster, here comesThe Favourite, a period drama about Queen Anne of England, played by Olivia Colman (who soon will be Elizabeth II in the third season of the critically acclaimed Netflix’s series The Crown) and her friendship with two courtisans, played by Rachel Weisz and my beloved Emma Stone, the last one determined to climb up the ladder of 18th century’s english society.
Mary Queen of Scots, with Saoirse Ronan in the main role and Margot “Harley Quinn” Robbie as Queen Elizabeth I, follows the attempt of Mary, catholic queen of Scotland, to conquer the throne of England, only to be imprisoned and then executed by her protestant cousin, Elizabeth I
From the author of Shaun of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, here comes the third chapter of the partnership of director Edward Wright with the actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Martin “Watson” Freeman and Rosamund Pike join the party.

Lenora Crichlow, la Annie di Being Human, è Victoria, una donna risvegliatasi senza alcuna memoria di sè in un mondo in cui la popolazione si è divisa tra voyeurs che si limitano a riprendere tutto con telefonini e videocamere e “cacciatori”, che danno la caccia proprio a quelli come lei che hanno perso ogni ricordo. Causa di tutto, un segnale video che ha fatto un lavaggio del cervello a tutti quanti (espediente peraltro già utilizzato in Dollhouse, la serie di Joss Whedon… ). Riuscirà Victoria a bloccare il segnale e a invertirne gli effetti o è ormai troppo tardi?
