The Touch of Evil

The Christmas season is supposed to be a time for people to come together and be the best they can be to each other. That’s what you would think it’s supposed to be, but the New York Times Magazine is embracing their dark side for this month’s Great Performances issue with a special celebrity pictorial entitled “Touch of Evil.”

For the “Touch of Evil” pictorial the NY Times Magazine employed thirteen of Hollywood’s biggest stars and best actors to portray icons of cinematic villainy: Brad Pitt, Mia Wasikowska, Kirsten Dunst, Rooney Mara, Jean Dujardin, Viola Davis, Adepero Oduye, Ryan Gosling, Glenn Close, Jessica Chastain, Michael Shannon, George Clooney, and Gary Oldman.

David S. Goyer Talks Impending ‘Invisible Man’ Project

Talk about a forgettable project.

Back in 2008, it was announced that writer/director David S. Goyer was set to bring the story of The Invisible Man back to the big screen. Since then, news has gone pretty much cold. Well, Goyer — best known for his contributions to The Dark Knight — has gotten back at it, and is now talking as to what one should expect from the picture, and it sounds, interesting.

Goyer recently chatted with the LA Times, and revealed that the film will be similar to something like the recent Sherlock Holmes film, saying that “it’s a period film, but it’s period like Downey’s Sherlock Holmes.” He also goes on to compare it to something like The Mummy, but then again, that doesn’t really get anyone too excited, does it?

H.G. Wells Classic Collection I

H.G. Wells Classic Collection I
Hardcover
Illustrations by Les Edwards
Publisher: Gollancz/Orion
Release date: March 2011

While you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, there’s no doubt that most people are drawn to a book’s attractive packaging (just look at the Collector’s Edition of J.K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard). And with the rise in popularity of ebooks, thanks to their convenience and low prices, that means that if print books are to continue to sell, publishers need to give consumers incentive to choose print over electronic versions, like supplemental material, illustrations, or collectible packaging. This is what Gollancz, an imprint of Orion, has done with the H.G. Wells Classic Collection I, a 678-page leather-bound hardcover with illustrations by Les Edwards.

This collection contains five of Wells’ most popular science fiction stories: The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The War of the Worlds, The First Men in the Moon, and The Invisible Man. Each chapter begins with a sketch, which alternates throughout the chapters of each book, like goggles and footprints in The Invisible Man and a creature from The Island of Doctor Moreau; there’s also full-page illustrations through the entire collection.

David Goyer’s ‘The Invisible Man’ Will Be Very Steam Punk
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Invisible ManAfter contributing to the biggest movie of the summer with The Dark Knight, writer/director David Goyer has a couple projects lined up that he’s working on, but he’s still trying to figure out which will be next.

He’s writing and directing the spin-off, X-Men Origins: Magneto, but he’s also working on The Invisible Man for Universal.

Because he gets to direct Magneto, you would think Goyer would be most excited to get at that, but with Ian McKellen guaranteed to be pretty busy soon with two new Lord of the Rings movies in motion, who knows what might happen there. With The Invisible Man, Goyer’s working with one of the artists from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight as he writes the script and he seems to be very excited about the project.
