'SUFFRAGETTE' CHARACTER POSTERS WITH MERYL STREEP, HELENA BONHAM CARTER, CAREY MULLIGAN! SF NOVELS 'WAY DOWN DARK' AND 'ARMAGEDON 2419 AD' TO GET MOVIE ADAPTATIONS

  NEW SF BOOK ADAPTATIONS
'ARMAGEDON 2419 AD"
Two sf book movie adaptations for you today, starting with news coming from 'Deadline' that film will be made out of classic sf story ARMAGEDON 2419 AD by Philip Francis Nowlan, an adventure about Buck Rogers, who, while investigating a mysterious gas leak and then getting trapped, is held in suspended animation, where he survives for just short of 500 years. He awakens on an Earth that is caught in a futuristic civil war, with the remnants of the United States battling both futuristic Soviets and Mongolians. The film will be set in a more advanced future than the one in the 1920's novel.

SMYTHE'S 'WAY DOWN DARK' 
Meanwhile, James Smythe's brand new novel WAY DOWN DARK (if you ask me, the ugliest cover I've ever seen and I've seen them as ugly as they come) will also be turned into a movie. It is the first book in a planned trilogy about people stuck on a spaceship called Australia who are looking for an inhabitable planet. The large ship is a maze of gangs, violence and a struggle to survive.The YA story is told from the viewpoint of a 17 year old girl named Chan who tries to find a way to escape this dark world and save people.

  'SUFFRAGETTE' POSTERS
 WITH MERYL STREEP AND HELENA BONHAM CARTER
And today you can also check out first character posters from powerful historical drama which opens this year's London Film Festival and hits cinemas in October. SUFFRAGETTE follows the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early 20th century Britain. Maud (Carey Mulligan) is a working wife and mother whose life is forever changed when she is secretly recruited to join the U.K.'s growing suffragette movement. Galvanized by the outlaw fugitive Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Maud becomes an activist for the cause alongside women from all walks of life. Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson and Ben Whishaw also star.

  5. I think Meryl looks great on the cover of her poster. The other two characters look a bit boring.

    1. my opinion exactly. Meryl always gets deeply into the character. Helena is always crazy, while Mulligan is just as bland as these younger actresses get these days...

    1. should be fun, but they have to futurise it a bit since it is a bit dated for modern times :)

  7. OMG Suffragette looks extremely powerful. A perfect platform for Streep.
    And the 'ugly' bookcover is kinda like an ugly dog, to me it appeals in its own unique way because of it.

    1. but I hate it when an exciting book has a boring cover :) Like big imaginative story inside and something artsy in a shallow way on the cover ... makes me wanna bang my head against a wall :)

  8. Suffragette... What took them so long, and how come 50% of all women are still suppressed? Because men are sons of bitches. Isn't that ironic?
