5 January 2013
January Jones b. 1978
Clancy Brown b. 1959
There will be a lot of birthdays of artists with a connection to fantasy and sci-fi celebrated here on the blog and actors are going to outnumber writers and directors because movies and TV shows hire more actors than directors or writers. As much as I love Clancy Brown's work, when it came to a picture of him or a picture of January Jones from X-Men: First Class, I did not have a tough time choosing.
Being a heterosexual male did have some bearing on my decision.
The date is 5 January, 1900.
H.G. Wells, known to his friends as George, makes his first trip INTO THE FUTURE in his time machine.
from The Time Machine, released 17 August 1960
I love predictions that give exact dates. This isn't exactly a prediction, since the movie is released in 1960 and the first scenes take place in 1900, but in any time travel movie, we are allowed the Dr. Who Rule, better known as:
Timey wimey wibbly wobbly.
Accuracy: Sorry, we didn't actually invent time travel in the Victorian era.
This movie will get another exact date prediction later in the year, on its release date of the 17th of August, to be exact. It really does look INTO THE FUTURE, at least from the vantage point of 1960, and it's a doozy of an apocalypse.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
Man travels the depths of interstellar space... in 1997? Well, perhaps only in The Twilight Zone.
Join me then... IN THE FUTURE!
