I would normally wait for a good source to post, but I think this is worth it. Here we have the last forty seconds of the teaser trailer of Xavier Dolan’s film, recorded directly from a cinema. The quality is terrible, but you can see a little hint of Natalie in it:

Tidbits

A couple small bits of Natalie-related news on this lazy Sunday afternoon.

– First up, there is a strong rumour that V for Vendetta may be getting the TV series treatment. If done right, I think this could be interesting. I’m a big fan of the graphic novel and felt the film didn’t quite do it justice. Channel Four in the UK are interested and I’d certainly be curious to see what they come up with. I imagine I’d be in the minority on that.

– If you’ve read Annihilation you may be interested in >this article looking at the elements in the trailer that are right from the page.

– Finally, if you’re planning a Natalie Halloween outfit you’re probably thinking of Leon, Star Wars, V for Vendetta, Black Swan, etc. You’re probably not thinking of Jackie, but here is a guide to the perfect Jackie Halloween outfit.

Annihilation Tidbits

This is a quiet week in Natland, so it´s a good time to do a compilation of tidbits about the next Natalie film to be released.

-The release of the teaser trailer for the film directed by Alex Garland has had a great media impact the last days: almost six million views in the official Paramount YouTube channel and the film is now #5 of the most popular movies in IMDB

-Author Jeff VanderMeer has given a couple of interviews this past week in which he gives us several interesting keys about what we will be able to see in the film:

The Verge: Annihilation author Jeff VanderMeer on how his next novel is inspired by our dystopian present

Annihilation was imbued with a level of surrealism and flat out weirdness in Area X. How do you think the film does when it comes to translating what you wrote visually?

Visually, it does an excellent job. There’s a scene involving Tessa Thompson’s character that’s not in the novel that I wish I had written. Getting to watch that scene being filmed was tense and exciting. The texture and the tactile nature of the movie, and the way it uses horror elements, are definitely is faithful to the novel. One difference is I think I see human beings as often irrational and inconsistent in their behavior, actions, and analysis of circumstances. I think Garland sees it mostly the other way around. So there should be some interesting takes online comparing the movie to the book, for a variety of reasons.
