Foundation teaser


Today Apple released a teaser for their Apple TV production of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation, which we will get to see in 2021.

I have read Foundation three times, I believe. It’s bound to present a challenge for filmmaking, and they’re bound to have to improvise. As beautiful a piece of fiction as Foundation is, I often have laughed about how nothing really happens. The story mostly consists of smart people sitting in boring rooms and talking. I’m hoping they’ve figured out how to make a film of it.

    I suppose the films coming out for the foreseeable future were all filmed pre-Corona? They’ll be a shortage at some point.

    That’s a scary thought! On the other hand, maybe we’ll get less urban and suburban here-and-now stuff filmed in boring cities such as L.A. and more fantasy stuff filmed out in the middle of nowhere, like Game of Thrones. 🙂
