Print Blog / The Year Movie Posters Turned Gray by COLOURlovers :: COLOURlovers

Print Blog / The Year Movie Posters Turned Gray by COLOURlovers :: COLOURlovers | Facts and Fictions | Scoop.it

Recently we shared a project that visualized the history of colors in movie posters from 1914 to present. Those visualizations showed a striking shift as blue has been feature more and more prominently over the years. It also highlights Hollywood's love of those complementary colors orange and blue. This is something that gets brought up and ranted about every so often, and when I went to browse through the movie posters of films released this year, I fully expected to see the usual orange and blue trends. What I saw was a little different.

ABC is developing the steampunk adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Yes, really.

ABC is developing the steampunk adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Yes, really. | Facts and Fictions | Scoop.it

With one set of public domain heroes already settling in comfortably at Once Upon a Time, ABC is ready to give a pair of classic American characters a modern update. The network has announced that it is developing Finn & Sawyer, a detective TV series about Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn set in a steampunk version of New Orleans.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Jason Richman and David Zabel (who produced ABC's Detroit 1-8-7) are developing the Finn & Sawyer pilot for ABC, which will revolve around the two troublemakers who meet again as 20-somethings and open up an investigation firm in retrofuturistic New Orleans.

As gimmicky as "steampunk Huck and Tom" sounds, the characters actually may be quite well suited for steampunk. Twain's novel Tom Sawyer Abroad was a play on Jules Verne-style adventure stories, and featured a mad professor and his absurd, futuristic airship. And Tom Sawyer had his own mystery story with Tom Sawyer, Detective. However, Twain was poking fun at the conventions of these genres, not merely using them as vehicles for his characters. If the pilot progresses, we'll have to see if the creators use Huck and Tom to their full satirical effect.

Google Drive vs. Dropbox, SkyDrive, SugarSync, and others: a cloud sync storage face-off | Facts and Fictions | Scoop.it
Does Drive stand a chance against sync and backup veterans?

 

Google's very own "Loch Ness monster," also known as Google Drive, has finally launched. It's the new face of Google Documents, and it's also Google's oft-rumored Dropbox-killer. It enters a scene crowded with competitors besides Dropbox that let you sync multiple folders, collaborate with friends, and stream data to your mobile device — so how does Drive fare?

We'll take a look at the top apps that let you sync files between all of your devices automatically, share files using password protection, pick which folders you want to sync, and do anything else you might want to do with a syncing app. While our evaluations of each app aren't full-on reviews, they are encapsulations of where each app excels and what makes each unique. Refer to the chart at the bottom of the page for full breakdowns of each application.
