Erster Trailer zum Edgar Allan Poe Thriller The Raven

Nach zwei sehr netten Postern gibt es jetzt endlich auch einen ersten Trailer zu James McTeigue’s The Raven mit John Cusack als Edgar Allan Poe.

Synopsis:

When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper–part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack). But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story. Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.

The Mask of the Black Death: Letztes Akira Kurosawa Skript als Anime

ANN meldet, daß The Mask of the Black Death, das letzte Drehbuch des japanischen Meisterregisseurs Akira Kurosawa anlässlich seines (theoretisch) 100. Geburtstags im Rahmen des AK100 Projekts als Anime umgesetzt werden soll. Black Death basiert auf der Kurzgeschichte The Masque of the Red Death von Edgar Allan Poe, in der sich ein Prinz mit seinem Hofstab in seiner Abtei vor einer grasierenden Pestepedemie verschanzt. Um sich die Langeweile zu vertreiben beschließt der Prinz trotz des Elends in der Bevölkerung einen Kostümball für seine adeligen Freunde abzuhalten und erhält dabei Besuch von einem ungebetenen Gast. Akira Kurosawa hatte zusammen mit Masato Ide die Geschichte in das Russland eines fiktionalen 20. Jahrhunderts verlagert und plante die Produktion des Films 1998 zu starten, verstarb jedoch im September des Jahres. Die Produktion des Animes wird von Lotus Inc. übernommen und soll 2010 zu einem kinoreifen Resultat führen.
Ebenfalls Teil des AK100 Projekts ist ein Remake von Kurosawa’s Rashomon mit dem passenden Namen Rashomon 2010.
