Murder and gold abound in exclusive first The Luminaries trailer
Watch the first trailer and get an exclusive look at photos for new Starz series 'The Luminaries,' adapted from Eleanor Catton's acclaimed novelThe new Starz series, based on Eleanor Catton's Man Booker Prize winning novel of the same name, dropped its first trailer, which EW is sharing exclusively above, and it pulses with desire, a potent mystery, and something altogether more dangerous.
In Germany, they call the period just before the rise of Adolf Hitler “the dance on the volcano” — the late 1920s and early 1930s when German society, at least in the big cities like Berlin, seemed open, free, and exciting. When no one seemed to notice they were on the edge of catastrophe.
It’s at exactly this moment in time — Berlin, 1931 — when Dominik Graf sets his new film, Fabian – Going to the Dogs. Based on the 1931 novel by Erich Kästner, it stars Tom Schilling (Never Look Away) as Jakob Fabian, an ironic idealist working as an ad man who, like the rest of the country, has no idea what’s coming.
Dogs migrated with humans to the Americas 15,000 years ago
Researchers pieced together genetic and archaeological data to determine that humans brought their furry friends to the Americas over 15,000 years ago.Archaeological and genetic data has revealed that dogs accompanied humans when they were migrating to the Americas from East Asia, according to a study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
In the exclusive first-look trailer for the film, we see Fabian indulging in the hedonistic nightlife of 1930s Berlin, together with his best friend, rich boy, and devoted communist Labude (Albrecht Schuch of System Crasher and Berlin Alexanderplatz). But he soon only has eyes for Cornelia (Never Look Away’s Saskia Rosendahl). As their love grows, Germany steams ahead towards disaster.
“We’re all on the same train, traveling through time,” Fabian writes in his diaries. “We look outside and saw enough. We’re all on the same train and no one knows how far we’ll go.”
Fabian shares its time and location with popular German TV series Babylon Berlin but Graf’s style — honed through countless TV movies and features including A Map of the Heart (2002) and Beloved Sisters (2014), is looser, and more akin to a Sundance indie than a period epic.
Produced by Lupa Film in co-production with DCM Pictures and ZDF, Fabian will premiere in competition at the 2021 Berlin International Film Festival next month. DCM will release the movie in Germany later this year. Les Films du Losange is handling world sales.
