inkpop Fundamentals: September 9, 2010

‘Sandman’ to the small screen Long before author Neil Gaiman penned the charming Coraline or the sparkling Stardust, Gaiman was responsible for writing The Sandman comic book series, which was published for eight years (from 1989-1996), and was one of the only comic book series in history to make its way onto the New York Times Best Seller List. Now, after years of lying in developmental wait to be adapted for the big screen, Gaiman’s Sandman will be taking a small detour, heading for the small screen instead! While only in the early stages of development; Warner Bros. TV is currently in the midst of obtaining rights from DC Entertainment; and is hoping to recruit Supernatural creator Eric Kripke to work on the project. Heat Vision.

Music, stories, and art collide! Sarah Lynn Knowles has been interested in art and blogging for years; so it should come as no surprise that she would be eager to combine her two loves into one stellar new project…Storychord. Creating something completely new for the World Wide Web; Storychord is a weekly webzine that brings readers one issue each week, which features a trio of artistic fodder: one photograph, one original story, and one original song. The clincher? The three work as one to create a unique entity to be enjoyed by visitors. Even better is the fact that each piece is created by “underexposed talent,” so you have the chance to be introduced to new artistes on a weekly basis! Pop Candy.

Happy birthday, Bella! Though the big screen version of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling Eclipse was officially released in theaters on June 30, 2010, earning more than $671 million nationwide at the box office; it wasn’t the last that movie-goers will see of this installment. Skipping the DVD-release (if only temporarily), Summit Entertainment is re-releasing Eclipse in theaters on Friday, September 10, 2010, in honor of Bella Swan’s birthday – which is celebrated on September 13, 2010. No word yet as to how long the film will remain in theaters this time around. Hollywood Crush.

Over to you…have you ever read Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic book series? If Sandman makes it to the small screen, will you be watching it – why or why not? What do you think of Storychord? What do you think of the re-release of Eclipse – clever marketing move, or…? Will you be seeing Eclipse once it makes its way back into theaters, or will you be waiting for the DVD release – why or why not?
