Well, shit. If I thought that I was excited for this movie before, now my dial is twisted up to eleven. Elysium itself looks like none other than Neuromancer’s Freeside. Matt Damon running around in a body-mech, sprawling spirals of space inhabitants. My tits are ready.
This is no way to calm my already frantic nerves about the film adaptation of Neuromancer. I mean, first they offer the lead role to Marky Mark, and now they drop this concept artwork. Glorious me. You can pull this sort of brooding, dark set, generic artwork out of cyberpunk discount bins. All that is missing from this bullshit is some sort of head tattoo-mohawk combination.
Hit the jump to peep the abominations.
Silly me for getting hopes up regarding the Neuromancer adaptation. I mean, I thought things. Wonky things. Like it may not suck. Like it may be good. If these rumors are true, you can find me in the bathrub weeping softly
Lordy, lordy. The future is good. Check out the Daedalus Cyber-attack alert system, which renders cyber attacks in 3D graphics.
Are you a fucking cyberpunk? Let this guide from a leet zine out of the 1990s decide. Man, I’m sadly under prepared when it comes to gorgeous flowing hair and leather.
William Gibson predicted the future, and as I type on this keyboard to you across our mass hallucination, I’m only ratifying that claim. Here’s a pretty fucking awesome interview by Alex Pasternack in which he gets Gibson to open up on a variety of things. Gods, I love this man.
Now I don’t go to night clubs, but this is one I’d kill to attend. A night club in space. This is something out of Neuromancer or Altered Carbon, and that gets my loins writhing.
True fucking Gibsonite porn right here. A 1986 informercial for a Neuromancer adaptation that never came to be. It was intended to drudge up funding for the project, and features a gaggle of stars including a glorious 1986 version of the author himself.
