Metropolis – Wiedergefundene Schnittfassung hat Premiere auf der Berlinale


Vor ungefähr einem Jahr gab’s die sensationelle Nachricht, dass in Argentinien eine verschollene Schnittfassung von Fritz Langs „Metropolis“ aufgetaucht war, die dann an das Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau Institut übergeben wurde, die den Film restaurierten. Diese Fassung wird am 12. Februar wärend der Berlinale im Friedrichstadtpalast Premiere feiern. Und ich werde alles dafür tun, um da an Karten zu kommen. Alles!

Some 83 years after its original debut, the classic movie will be shown at a gala presentation on February 12 at the Friedrichstadtspalast accompanied by a live performance of the original score by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin.

“Just about no other German film has inspired and influenced film history as greatly as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis,” Berlinale Director Dieter Kosslick said in a statement. “We are especially pleased and honoured to be able to present the reconstructed original cut of this legendary and seminal film classic at the festival’s 60th anniversary.”

    Grandioser wäre, wenn METROPOLIS anschließend noch Mal in den dt. Kinos laufen wurde ;)#

    Hoffentlich wird es nicht mehr lange dauern, bis die wiedergefundene Fassung ebenfalls auf DVD erscheint ;)

    METROPOLIS ist für jeden Cineasten ein MUSS!!!

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
