Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is the upcoming animation movie of Sony Pictures in collaboration with Columbia Pictures. It’s a story about a town where an inventor invents a machine that makes food fall out of the sky like rain…
Although the release date is the 18th of September, 2009, it seems that it will be officially released in the 12th of February in Turkey – 6 months later!
“When Coraline steps through a door in her family’s new home, she finds herself in another house, strangely similar to her own. But also very different!
The food is better, the toybox is full of fascinating things, and Coraline is made very welcome. But then it becomes clear the other mother and father who live there want Coraline to stay, and never go back to her real parents, and she faces a terrible struggle to be free.”
The storyline is very intruiging, and the artwork is captivating as well. (The ISBN is: 978-0-7475-9406-2) There is also a movie of Coraline, directed by Henry Selick, as expected. I haven’t watched it yet, but I suppose it will be amazing as well. Here is the trailer:
I recently bought (and immediately read and finished) Clover as a collected full edition, which is by the manga artists group CLAMP. I do not want to give any more spoilers than the back cover, so here’s the synopsis from the back cover itself:
“Kazuhiko is a young, but already deeply wounded, black-ops agent of a baroque, retro-tech world-pulled out of retirement to escort Sue, a mysterious waif, to a destination she alone knows. Sue and Kazuhiko have never met… yet she knows him, having grown up since the age of four with her only human contact being two distant voices: that of her elderly “grandma” – Kazuhiko’s commander, general Ko; and that of Kazuhiko’s dead girlfriend, the beautiful singer Ora.
And Sue has been kept in that cage all these years because of what she is, and what the Clover Leaf Project found her to be: a military top secret…and the most dangerous person in the world.”
I think the artwork is amazing, well of course coming from CLAMP, that was expected already :) The ISBN of the book I bought is 978-1-59582-196-6
Here are some pieces of art from the manga:
Here is the music video made for Clover, don’t watch it if you don’t want any spoilers, although it doesn’t give much away it can make the reader unpleasant to know about one or two details..
I really had high expectations for Pixar‘s new animation movie, Up, but it seems that it will be released in October in Turkey according to the movies’ imdb page, even though it was released in May. So I guess I have nothing to do but wait for the movie…
