Les Aventures Extraordinaires D’Adèle Blanc-Sec – New poster for Luc Besson’s pulp comic book adventure

Posted by LiveFor on April 1, 2010

I think this is a great poster for the pulp stylings of Luc Besson’s adventure movie. Louise Bourgoin is Adèle Blanc-Sec and sounds like a mix of Hellboy, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Jules Verne, The Mummy and so much more. Check out the trailer.

The year is 1912. Adèle Blanc-Sec, an intrepid young reporter, will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, even sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes.

Meanwhile, in Paris, it’s panic stations! A 136 million-year-old pterodactyl egg on a shelf in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the bird subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adèle Blanc-Sec, whose adventures reveal many more extraordinary surprises…

Set in the carefree world before World War I, Adèle Blanc-Sec’s adventures see the brave young woman fearlessly battling crooks, corrupt politicians, demon worshippers and mad scientists. Legendary cartoonist Jacques Tardi’s original stories perfectly recreate the intrigue, romance and excitement of one of the most tumultuous periods in history.

The film is due out on 14th April in France.

Nosso Lar (Our Home) – Trailer for film set on the Astral Plane

Posted by LiveFor on March 26, 2010

When the successful physician Andre, father of three, finally dies of cancer, instead of rising up to what he believed would be ‘heaven’, he wakes up in a devastated valley.

Living like a castaway, struggling to avoid the vampire spirits who attack at night, Andre does not understand why he has had such a fate and is labeled a suicide, such as the others among them.

One day, a shaft of light comes down from the sky above to rescue some spirits from the deeper areas of the Valley. Andre is rescued and taken to the spiritual city named Nosso Lar.

This is where Andre finds new friends and allies. Also, where he meets his enemy – himself, his previous acts. In order to prove he still values life, Andre struggles to gain merits by hard work.

One day he finally receives permission to visit his wife and kids. Ten years have passed, his wife has remarried, his children have grown up.

At this moment Andre will need to work on everything he has learned back in Our Home. In one sense, accepting death, stepping into another level of existence, learning forever that life never ceases. Learning to love and be loved.

Directed by Wagner de Assis and based on the novel of Francisco C. Xavier, Nosso Lar looks trippy and mighty cool.

The Astral City is the name of the spirit colony that Andre Luiz describes in this first book of his collection. In this vibrant narrative, the author offers us his observations and discoveries regarding life in the spirit world, acting as a sort of reporter who records his own experiences. It reveals a pulsating world full of life and activity organized in exemplary fashion, and where discarnate spirits go through steps of recovery and spiritual education supervised by high order spirits. Nosso Lar enables us to see beforehand the spirit world that awaits us when we abandon the corporeal body through physical death.
