DARREN ARONOFSKY ADAPTS
'MADDADDAM' SF NOVELS INTO HBO TELEVISION SERIES
In today's news on new book adaptations, Darren Aronofsky will helm the TV version of Margaret Atwood's MADDADDAM sf trilogy over at HBO! The futuristic trilogy, which consists of ORYX AND CRAKE, YEAR OF THE FLOOD and MADDADDAM, takes place in the mid-21st century, describing the events before and after a Waterless Flood that wipes out almost all of the world's population. The story follows those responsible for the apocalyptic event, and those struggling to survive in a world where corporations have taken over the government, and genetic modification of organisms is becoming increasingly popular.

DAWN OF PLANET OF APES
STUNNING NEW POSTER IS HERE!
Check out a stunning new poster for this summer's epic action DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES with Caesar leading his apes into a battle riding a horse! Coming to cinemas this July the movie will see a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar being threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species. The cast includes Andy Serkis and Gary Oldman!

  2. DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES looks a bit different from the other films of that type. Could be interesting.

  3. Surprisingly, I have not heard of the Maddaddam series. They sound good though, so I may have to put them on my reading list, and then see the movies.

    1. I'm scared too... imagine hordes of mad apes invading our streets...... the only worse thing would be the same with rats

  11. Hey, Dezzy. Got your comment. No real innards, just the bake cabinets that needed redone. We have this one horrid space and so far nothing has worked so I tried something different.

    Cheers and boogie boogie.

  12. I remember when Planet of the Apes came out. Everyone was raving about how great it was. I just couldn't bring myself to watch it. I don't want to think about apes coming to town to conquer us!

    1. yes, we would expect that from rats not from apes

  13. All of this is right up my alley. I love anything based on literature or literary characters + The Planet Of The Apes traumatized me when I was a toddler. Great selection today.

  14. I'm interested in Oryx and Crake and I never get sick of Planet of the Apes.

  15. Serkis does such a wonderful job with Cesare. This doesn't bode well for the humans. In the first movie they did a good job making it so the imminent demise of the human race wasn't such a bad thing. Kind of. Love Oldman in anything.
