Die 500 unglaublichsten Geschichten aus der Welt des Films

Klappe, und Action: zu den skurrilsten, lustigsten und überraschendsten Fakten der internationalen Film-Blockbuster und erfolgreichsten Fernsehserien unserer Zeit David Hain (YouTube: BeHaind) verrät in "Fakt ab!" nicht nur alles Wissenswerte über die Lieblingsfilme der Deutschen (von A wie Avatar über S wie Sex and the City bis Z wie Zurück in die Zukunft), sondern überrascht ihn zugleich mit einem Feuerwerk an unnützem Wissen über eben diese. Mal als Kurz-Fact, mal anekdotisch nimmt er uns mit auf eine cineastische Zeitreise. Wussten Sie zum Beispiel: dass Harrison Fords Vertrag eigentlich vorsah, am Ende von "Das Imperium schlägt zurück" der Star-Wars-Saga zu sterben? Da sein Charakter aber zum absoluten Fanliebling geriet, änderte George Lucas das Drehbuch. dass Jack alias Leonardo Di Caprio in Titanic dem Tod von der Schippe gesprungen wäre, wenn sich Regisseur James Cameron einfach nur an die Regeln des Auftriebs gehalten hätte? dass das Original-Filmplakat von "Arielle" ausgetauscht werden musste, weil einer der darauf zu sehenden Türme des Schlosses die Form eines Penis hatte? dass die Macher des Films "Der König der Löwen" von einem Biologen verklagt wurden, weil seiner Meinung nach darin die Hyänen als hinterlistige Trottel diffamiert würden? Ein großer Spaß für alle Film-Liebhaber sowie Fans von Film-Trivia und David Hain!

WE ARE KRYPTON Part of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling, all-new line of volume one graphic novels, DC Universe Rebirth! When the Man of Steel died defending his adopted home, it seemed that the spirit of truth and justice he represented was extinguished forever. But watching from the sidelines was another Superman-older, wiser, more experienced-with his wife, Lois Lane, and their son, Jonathan Kent. Now this refugee from a vanished universe is stepping out of the shadows, ready to assume the mantle of his fallen counterpart and take to the skies once more as Earth’s greatest hero. But he is not the only survivor of Krypton to make the journey to this reality. The machine mind known as the Eradicator is on the trail of the House of El, and its hardwired directive to protect the Kryptonian genome permits no consideration for any other forms of life-not even those that share Kal-El’s blood. Can the son of Superman harness his newly emerging powers in time to resist the annihilation of his humanity? Or will he be reborn into a new Krypton forged from the ashes of his mother’s world? Exploding out of DC’s blockbuster Rebirth event, SUPERMAN VOL. 1: SON OF SUPERMAN marks the beginning of a new era for the Man of Tomorrow and a great jumping-on point for new fans-brought to you by acclaimed storytellers Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, Doug Mahnke, Jorge Jimenez, Mick Gray, Jaime Mendoza, John Kalisz, Will Quintana and Alejandro Sanchez! Collects issues #1-6 and the SUPERMAN: REBIRTH one-shot.
