In an era of reboots, restarts and retreads, J.J. Abrams' Star Trek trilogy-featuring new, prequel adventures of Kirk, Spock and the rest of the original series characters, aboard the USS Kelvin-has brought the franchise to a new generation and perfected a process increasingly central to entertainment media: reinvigorating the beloved classic. Offering the first in-depth analysis of the new trilogy and the vision of the next generation of Star Trek filmmakers, this collection of new essays explores issues of gender, race, politics, economics, technology and morality-always key themes of the franchise-in the 21st century context of "The Kelvin Timeline."

Fantasy and science fiction began in print, and from the first films to the latest blockbusters, print stories have provided the inspirations, the ideas, and in some cases the detailed blueprints. Adaption Studies has long been an area of intense debate in literature and film studies, but no single work has ever approached fantasy and science fiction texts as a unique and important area of inquiry by themselves. The Fantastic Made Visible is the first book to do exactly that. Follow that journey from the earliest adaptations of Jules Verne, Robert A. Heinlein, and Shakespeare to today's films based on The Hobbit, Planet of the Apes, and The Hunger Games in what is the most complete collection of its kind currently available. Written in clear, jargon-free English, this book has a wide range of critical approaches and films from around the world.

This book applies the videocassette to the study of Shakespeare on television and film. The result is that the films become texts, and Shakespeare in performance can be examined with the scholarly care that has been reserved for printed books.

Science Fiction and Futurism - Their Terms and Ideas (Paperback): Ace G. Pilkington Science Fiction and Futurism - Their Terms and Ideas (Paperback)
Ace G. Pilkington; Edited by Donald E. Palumbo, C.W. Sullivan III
R798 Discovery Miles 7 980 Special order

Science and science fiction have become inseparable-with common stories, interconnected thought experiments, and shared language. This reference book lays out that relationship and its all-but-magical terms and ideas. Those who think seriously about the future are changing the world, reshaping how we speak and how we think. This book fully covers the terms that collected, clarified and crystallized the futurists' ideas, sometimes showing them off, sometimes slowing them down, and sometimes propelling them to fame and making them the common currency of our culture. The many entries in this encyclopedic work offer a guided tour of the vast territories occupied by science fiction and futurism. In his Foreword, David Brin says, "Provocative and enticing? Filled with `huh!' moments and leads to great stories? That describes this volume."
