We are in love with beautiful and brainy Adèle Blanc-Sec, and her new French feature film. Check out four new clips and a massive gallery from the film. Plus we've got giant squid submarines, Heartless trailers and a dystopian short.

Adèle Blanc-Sec

Adèle Blanc-Sec or the French/Female Indiana Jones, as many are calling her, is creating quite a stir online. Perhaps it's because this steampunky lady already has a giant following thanks to her collection of fascinating stories and comics, or because the film looks astounding. But personally, I think it's because she's a drop-dead-gorgeous brainiac who doesn't need a whip to look tough. The story focuses on our heroine Adèle Blanc-Sec as she blows the lid on occult schemes, uncovers secret society cover ups, and acts like an all around bad ass around dinosaurs while the menfolk cower behind her. Here are four clips, and an subtitled trailer from her feature film, let the archaeological shenanigans begin!


(Trailer with English subtitles and quickie NSFW image FYI!)

Here is the new English website if you want to know more, plus a collection of stills.

The Anachronism

Back in February, we showed off some lovely stills and video footage from The Anachroism, a short about a lovely squid submarine, and a couple of Victorian-styled tykes who discover the mechanical wonder. Well good news, the entire short is premiering this week, plus here's a bushel of stills to hold you off until the 17th, the online debut date.



Watch Jim Sturgess make a deal with the devil to forever fix his scarred appearance. In exchange for his new found beauty is death, and lots of it. Sturgess watches in horror as the streets are flooded with the devil's army of street punks.



Luis Bricenco and David Alapont, bring us the French, Fard. This slick little short was brought to our attention via Twitch. There aren't any subtitles but the story is fairly straight forward, and you should be able to follow along as the main characters clean future existence comes crashing down around him.

When I see trailers for films like this I really see the need for the American rating system to have something between a PG-13 and an R. Like, a PG-15 or something. It would literally open the doors for a whole new genre of film-making.

Films could have the more "risque" aspects of European cinema such as the extra swearword here and there, some (tasteful) nudity sprinkled about, and a more mature level of story-telling that wouldn't simultaneously forfeit a wider audience in the way that an R-rating does.
