Danny Boyle's 'Frankenstein' will be broadcast live from the London stage on March 17, April 2nd.

Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) returns to the theatre to direct this visionary new production.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein's bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

For the first time ever, National Theatre Live will broadcast two separate performances of a production. Throughout the run of 'Frankenstein' at the National Theatre, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller are alternating the roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature. Audiences in cinemas will have the chance to see both combinations, with two broadcasts a week apart.


Performance at Notre Dame. Sticky-marking ticket info for my own reference: here.

OH MY GOSH. I COMPLETELY FORGOT THAT CUMBERDICT BENEBATCH WAS IN FORTYSOMETHING.

He was a ginger, that's probably why.

And I was busy looking at Hugh Laurie.

Also, I am home and there is wireless here, but I am on vacation and feeling particularly predisposed to laziness, so my availability over the next few days will likely be limited. (Also, Phantom on Sunday. ☆__☆)

I think I might need to do a "skinny blokes in skinny ties" picspam sometime in the near future.

So, obviously, Todd and I enjoyed Inception. Which is a very good thing, because we'd both been anticipating this movie since we saw the teaser trailers for it last year. Without giving anything away, I have to say that it is Christopher Nolan at his finest. I heard that he spent ten years writing and re-writing the script for Inception. In my opinion, that kind of dedication can only have to outcomes: it either sucks because it's been diluted to the point when it no longer resembles the original idea, or, as in the case of Nolan's screenplay, it works because of the amount of detail and attention that has gone into it. Conceptually, Inception has one of the smartest, sharpest stories I've seen in cinema in recent years. On a visual level, Nolan hits it out of the park. I absolutely recommend seeing Inception in the theater -- there are sequences that I feel are better suited to the big screen than to a casual, in-home viewing. Todd and I are probably going to go back to see it a second time, just to pick up on all of the little things we missed (it's not an overly difficult concept to follow, but I think I would enjoy going back to see how it all fits together), which is a fairly good indication of whether or not we jived with a movie -- the last time we did that, it was for Iron Man. (Five times in the theater, each, actually, and at least three times when we were over in Europe.)

I think one reason I enjoyed Inception so much was that it made me feel like I thought cinema should make me feel: challenged, excited, and completely immersed in the world on the screen. Christopher Nolan fulfilled my vision of what movies can -- and should -- be.

Okay, seriously. How did I get this far without realizing that Cillian Murphy was going to be in Inception?

CILLIAN MURPHY IS GOING TO BE IN INCEPTION.

THERE.

I mean, just look at that handsome devil. He's like every Burberry catalog fantasy I've ever had.
