Rampage – The Movie (plus Pacific Rim)

1 Comment

John Rickard, Produzent des Nightmare-Remakes und Final Destination arbeitet derzeit an einer Verfilmung des Game-Klassikers Rampage, in dem man mit Riesenmonstern („George, a King Kong-like gorilla, Lizzie, a Godzilla-like dinosaur/lizard, or Ralph, a giant werewolf“) eine Stadt plattmachen muss.

Rampage reiht sich damit in eine ganze Reihe von Gameklassikern ein, von deren Adaptionen man nun auch schon ewig nichts mehr gehört hat (Space Invaders, Asteroids, Missile Command) und ob da was bei rum kommt… wer weiß.

New Line Cinema has put into development an adaptation of the classic 1980s video game featuring apes and monsters destroying cities.
John Rickard, who has acted as a co-producer on a wide range of New Line movies from A Nightmare on Elm Street and Final Destination to Horrible Bosses and next year’s tentpole Jack the Giant Killer, will produce and is meeting with writers to develop a story for the project.
The game comes from Midway Games, which was acquired by New Line’s sister company Warner Bros. in 2009 for $33 million.

Gegen Riesenmonsterfilme voller Destruction hab’ ich ja per se erstmal nix und das ist auch das einzige Newsbit aus diesem Genre heute morgen:

Guillermo Del Toro began am Montag dieser Woche mit den Dreharbeiten zu Pacific Rim, seinem „beautiful poem to giant monsters“ (Wired) und Ron Perlman ist wohl für eine Rolle darin gecastet worden. Guter Tag für Riesenmonster, heute.

    Boah, ich habe Rampage geliebt!
    Das gab es in einem Diner in dem meine Familie anno irgendwas 1980 öfter gegessen hat und ich erinnere mich noch, nicht schnell genug aufessen zu können um dann so viel nur möglich war Rampage zu spielen. Später hatte ich es dann auch für meinen C-64 Computer.
    Allein deswegen ist ein Film davon schon absolute Pflicht!

    Pacific Rim, auch ohne Japanbezug, freut mich als alten Daikaiju-Fan auch sehr! Vor allem mit einem Macher á la Del Toro am Steuer, der jeden verfilmten Stoff geradezu lebt und meist auch liebt.

    Ick freu mir schon ganz doll!!! Godzilla kommt ja auch (wieder) nächstes Jahr!
    Gute Zeit für Monsterfilmfans!

    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.”
