Za razliku od prethodnih Flash News najava (Flash News 1 i Flash News 2), Flash News 3 donosi tek 5 naslova. Ali kako se ono kaže, nije stvar u kvantiteti, već kvaliteti. Pa krenimo redom. Prvi u nizu je mezavisni Mađarski SF triler, pa zatim Japanska fantasy komedija nastala prema mangi, i Korejska ratna trilogija Axis of War. Nadam se barem nešto po vašem ukusu.
Thelomeris aka Sorsvonalak (2011)
Mađarski SF triler redatelja i ko-scenarista Balázsa Hatvania. Autori film opisuju kao stemapunk noir, i ako je suditi prema teaseru, sve skupa mnogo vuče na Sin City ili Sin City. Radi se inače o filmu nezavisne produkcije, a neke od manjih, gotovo cameo uloga igraju redom i James Purefoy, DJ Qualls, Lance Henriksen, te Mark Hamill koji je ujedno bio i konzultant na scenariju. Film je u produkciji još od 2008. ponajprije zato jer barem 80% filma zahtjeva post-produkciju obradu s obzirom da je gotovo sve ili snimljeno ispred green screena ili je riječ o kompletnim CGI kadrovima. Ali to je očito pri kraju jer bi film trebao u Mađarskoj i Americi izaći do kraja 2011., iako točan datum je još nepoznat.
Dark clouds are crowding in the sky above the endless metropolis. This is Thelomeris, the city of cogwheels and clocks. The citizens are living their lives in order to operate the clock factory and make it work as effectively as possible and create more energy for making even more clockworks. No one knows who and why established the city, or how long it has existed. Its ancient bordering walls and looming skyscrapers are reaching for the sky silently. Enormous metal cogs are working at the heart of the clock factory, as it casts dark shadows onto the city.
The biggest and most influential man of Thelomeris, MAN1 is the owner of the clock factory too. His job is to operate the factory as effectively as he can while grabbing all opportunities to study time and get as close to understanding it as possible. He is a mysterious and scary man, who leads his company with fearless determination, knowing that even his investors are scared of him, thinking that he has no emotions what so ever. There is only one person who can fill this empty heart with warmth. This is his wife, who with love and care tries to convince MAN1 to close down the factory, before they risk losing everything, including each other. But just before he is able to make the decision over the clock factory his wife suddenly becomes sick. No one knows what the cause of the secret disease is, and all his powers seem to be scant to help. There is only one chance remaining: to play out time and go against it, change the course of time and in this way, change his wife’s destiny.
There seems to be only one mysterious person, ‘Stranger’ (Mark Hamill) who offers a solution to eluding faith. But faith isn’t something to be played with…
