1ST THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY TV SERIES TRAILER WITH TOM HOPPER, ROBERT SHEEHAN! NETFLIX TO TURN SALMAN RUSHDIE'S MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN INTO TV SERIES

    'MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN'
SALMAN RUSHDIE TV ADAPTATION
The book was turned into a movie back in 2012
Two Netflix projects about kids with special powers, starting with TV series adaptation of Salman Rushdie's MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN which  follows the life of Saleem Sinai, born on the stroke of midnight on August 15, 1947, the time of India’s independence. His every act is mirrored and magnified in events that sway the course of India’s national affairs; his health and wellbeing are inextricably bound to those of his nation; his life is inseparable, at times indistinguishable, from the history of his country. Perhaps most remarkable are the telepathic powers linking him with India’s 1,000 other “midnight’s children,” all born in that initial hour and endowed with magical gifts.

    'UMBRELLA ACADEMY'
FIRST TRAILER IS HERE!
Netflix has released a trailer for their new fantasy series THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY which will roll out February 15th based on the Dark Horse comic
Academy opens its doors next February
books. It stars Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan and Ellen Page.
On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. They have to work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

  2. I've never read anything by Salman Rushdie, only about Salman Rushdie. Lucky guy! So far he has escaped assasination by muslims following Houmeini's order after publication in the west of "SatanIC VerseS".

    They say his books are not easy to read; perhaps, adaptation to the screen will do them good, and offer the viwers a quality movie. "Midnight's Children" might be a pleasant surpise.

    1. Yes, he hasn't had an easy life, methinks. Haven't read anything by him, myself either, but he must be doing something good if you understand what I'm saying.....

  3. He's just an ordinary man with fears and a desire to live. So, he has apologized to the muslims stressing the fact that he is also muslim, and asked his publisher to stop printing the Satanic Verses and certainly not translate it in other languages. Well, not a big hero, but it worked as they'd let him live.

  4. Thank God I'm not the only one who doesn't like Ellen Page. I can' hardly stomach to watch anything she is in. She ranks up there with Kristen Stewart and Teresa Palmer in terms of unwatchable actresses for me.

    1. I hear most people cannot stand her... and I'd ad Lena Dunham to that list and Amy Schumer too! I myself also never a watch film with Keira Knightely and Natalie Unimportant.

    2. I have never seen anything Lena Dunham has done, but from what I see of her on the news, she's someone I would not like at all. A total nutcase it seems. I avoid Amy Schumer at all costs too. She's the biggest twat if there ever was one. I didn't know Kiera and Natalie were still making films? I haven't heard about anything they've been in in quite some time. I suppose that means they're off making even more unwatchable films that nobody cares about.

    3. twats, that's the word for all of them! Keira currently has like five films or something. And Natalie's current film is the star of the critical ridicule :)
