The latest Wonder Woman Trailer Shows Diana Fighting World War I

The latest Wonder Woman trailer has arrived from DCverse and it packs an exciting punch. Diana (Gal Gadot) is a princess of the mystical island of Themyscira, and is forced to participate in World War I when the battle nears her homeland. Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, is (fortunately) guilty of having both humor and color – two elements which were missing from DC’s offerings in recent past. While I loved the trailer, I believe DC revealed all the three acts along with the point of conflict – and this may undo the film upon its release for the viewers. Having...

Danny Boyle’s ambitious sequel to the 1996 film Trainspotting has everyone hooked. T2: Trainspotting, as the upcoming movie is called, marks the return of the original cast ensemble – Ewan McGregor as Renton, Robert Carlyle as Francis Begbie, Jonny Lee Miller as Sick Boy and Ewen Bremner as Spud.

The trailer warps Renton’s famous ‘choose life’ dialogue into a contemporary...

‘Immortal’ by Krishna Udayasankar – Book Review

Immortal‘s back-cover blurb made me recollect a science-fiction film titled The Man From Earth, whose titular character, like the protagonist of Krishna’s book, live through centuries with an unending life. The concept remains pretty much the same, and while I mistook Immortal to be a standalone thriller, one can easily trace its origins back to the author’s popular series Aryavarta Chronicles. A man from the time of Mahabharata, who wielded sword alongside Duryodhana, is still alive in the present day and age using new-age weapons. I’ll take the bait. We’re acquainted with Krishna’s prowess in the mytho-fiction genre, and she puts her...
