Welcome to Mythania

The world you are about to discover is a fantastical realm of steam, steel, and sorcery—a world where juggernaut war machines ravage the landscape, where stupendous air fleets dominate the skies, where astral mages battle enchanted automatons, and where the march of progress is moved as much by gears of iron as it is by the weaving of spells.

Welcome to the World of Mythania.

Alita: Battle Angel

Valentine’s day, 2019, will see the release of the (hopefully) awesome Hollywood adaptation of Battle Angel Alita, titled (backwardsly) Alita: Battle Angel.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron and Jon Landau, this movie has all the making’s a major blockbuster. However, the source material is pretty obscure. Back in the day, I was a huge Battle Angel Alita fan, as were some of my friends (we were all into anime and manga in the 1990s), to the point that I even wrote a little world book for the GURPS role-playing game systems. I still have the nine original manga graphic novels, which I’m now in the process of re-reading. Even so, Battle Angel Alita is almost completely unknown outside it’s limited fan base, and I fear that will work to the detriment of the movie.

The movie appears to loosely cover the first four graphic novels, which is good, since there probably won’t be a sequel. I honestly wish this was a streaming series for Netflix or Amazon, or maybe HBO or Starz, as it could be so much more than a one-shot movie. But it is what it is, and the latest trailer looks absolutely marvelous, and shows that the movie will at least touch on most of the key elements and themes of the manga.

Even Newer Mortal Engines Trailer!

There is now an even newer trailer out for Mortal Engines, based on the book by Philip Reeve and directed by Peter Jackson. I have a feeling this is going to be great! At least, I certainly do hope so.

Mortal Engines Full Trailer

And now I bring you the full trailer for “Mortal Engines.” The movie is based on the book by Philip Reeve and is directed by Peter Jackson, who directed “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.” I really hope the movie is as great as the trailer seems to suggest, and this might even the first of a series!
