His Dark Materials is one of the supreme works of imaginative fiction for both children and adults published in the 20th century. Northern Lights introduces Lyra, an orphan, who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology and magic are entwined. Lyra’s search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and turns into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. In The Subtle Knife she is joined on her journey by Will, a boy who possesses a knife that can cut windows between worlds. As Lyra learns the truth about her parents and her prophesied destiny, the two young people are caught up in a war against celestial powers that ranges across many worlds and leads to a thrilling conclusion in The Amber Spyglass.
Releases later this year.
Adapting Philip Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of the same name, which is considered a modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction, the first season follows Lyra, a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. Her search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. As she journeys through the worlds, including our own, Lyra meets Will, a determined and courageous boy. Together, they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living — and the dead — in their hands.
Produced by BBC and distributed by HBO, the series will premiere this year.
The tv-adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, is almost reaching its climax. The fifth episode of the season is 78 minutes long and there will only be one more.
Airs tonight (9PM), only on HBO.
I’ve seen Zack Snyder’s classic from 2009 and was impressed. I was 19 years old at the time and barely any knowledge of comics BUT characters as Rorschach and Dr Manhattan impressed me.
Last December I claimed Dr Manhattan to be the most powerfull character. A sequel series to 1987’s original comics – DOOMSDAY CLOCK – was announced 2017 and was a collision between The Watchmen and DC Universe’s other superheroes.
The series is described as a “modern-day reimagining of Alan Moore’s groundbreaking graphic novel about masked vigilantes”.
I have theories based upon the movie and what the teaser reveals. I’ll wait until I’ll publish these. But I want to mention that IT MIGHT take place AFTER the film.
Coming this fall on HBO.
