Director Ruairi Robinson (The Last Days on Mars) and screenwriter Jim Uhls (Fight Club) released their proof of concept “teaser” video for The Leviathan, which has racked up over 1.4 million Vimeo views. This led to involvement of Blomkamp as executive producer and X-Men: Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg, who will produce the feature.
Gogglebox stars encourage viewers to vote. I don’t know if this is a great idea, or crosses some line that may or may not be relevant any more.

Rewriting Our Past
This year it’s 100 years since Ladybird books were first published. Generations of children turned to these pocket-sized hardbacks for their favourite fairy tales, but not only: They read sanitised, biased accounts of history’s bloodiest chapters, as well as the biographies of popular, cruel despots such as Genghis Khan, Caligula and Queen Elizabeth II. They even learned how to make useless objects from hazardous components and how to destroy imbecilic superstitions with rudimentary science.
Unfortunately, Scarfolk children were not interested in Ladybird books or the subjects that entertained and educated other British children. To meet their needs, the Scarfolk Book company created its own series of small hardback books. A selection of some of the more popular editions is below.
The idea is to promote a site that helps people deal with online bullying in all its forms. There’s a fine line to tread between showing people that this is somewhere to go for help without glamorising the act. This shows how others react when asked to translate some insults for someone. The act of having to read the words to his face is tough, what’s more it’s interesting watching how different people react to the situation. It’s engagement without the sell. Can’t help but feel a bit more of a sell is needed, but maybe I lost something in translation.

Keeping Air Clean
Volvo’s new XC90 boasts the cleanest engine performance in its class, with CO2 emissions of just 60 g/km. But Volvo is just as concerned about the air inside the car as the air outside. CleanZone air filtration manages the interior air quality of the cabin, promoting the health and wellbeing of the cars’ occupants. Drivers can breathe easier knowing most microscopic, hazardous “fine dust” particles will now be prevented from entering the vehicle.

They also packaged “Swedish air” as a promotion too.
