Traveling to the moon was way less complicated this year than it was back in 1969, as the four of us proved, not that anyone gives a whoop. You see, over cold beers on my patio, with the crescent moon a delicate princess fingernail low in the west, I told Steve Wong that if he threw, say, a hammer with enough muscle, said tool would make a five-hundred-thousand-mile figure eight, sail around that very moon, and return to Earth like a boomerang, and wasn’t that fascinating?

Looking to avoid “Star Wars: Episode VII,” Sony has pushed back the release of its Dan Brown adaptation “Inferno,” which will find Tom Hanks reprising his role as Robert Langdon.

After directing “The DaVinci Code” and “Angels and Demons,” Ron Howard is returning for “Inferno,” which Sony will now release on Oct. 14, 2016.

“Inferno” had been scheduled to go head-to-head with “Star Wars: Episode VII” on Dec. 18, 2015. Now, only the Tina Fey-Amy Poehler comedy “The Nest” will have that distinct pleasure, though it could prove to be a savvy counter programming decision.

Heading into production next spring in Italy, “Inferno” will now compete for audiences against J.A. Bayona’s “A Monster Calls,” which features Liam Neeson as the titular creature and also opens on Oct. 14, 2016.

“Inferno” will open one week after Ben Affleck‘s crime drama “Live By Night” and Universal’s “Monster High,” and one week before WB releases Andy Serkis’ “Jungle Book: Origins” in theaters. [source]

Tom Hanks’s Video

Labels: Video

Tom Hanks has a new app out. You read that correctly, not a movie, but an app. It’s called theHanx Writer, and it is a technological testament to a serious disease that afflicts the poor man. Call it typewriter-itis.

Hanx Writer turns your iPad into an old-school manual typewriter. It replicates the thwack-thwack sound of metal stamping on paper and the ding-clunk-fripp of reaching the end of one line and starting a new one. The app is free in Apple’s App Store, though additional typewriter fonts and sounds cost $2.99 each.

If you’re puzzled about all this, you can, depending on your age, ask your father or grandfather about the hulking mobile printing presses that one dominated desks. Or just ask Hanks. He is, in a word, obsessed.

“What’s pleasing to my sensibilities is when you have the report of the key being struck, it allows for clear thinking,” the actor tells USA TODAY, noting that his collection of typewriters once numbered 200. No telling what Mrs. Hanks, Rita Wilson, thought of that.

“I suppose some people who get the app may just be looking for a different sound, but really it’s for people searching for a more personalized experience when writing on an iPad,” he says. “There’s also the opportunity here to take your iPad to a coffee house and be really obnoxious with all the clickety-clacking.”

Hanks says he uses typewriters daily, usually to type notes to friends or make comments on a screenplay. He loves the characteristics inherent in different machines and their distinctive fonts and quirks, whether it be a Hermes 2000 or a Brother De Luxe 895.

The names alone sing of nostalgia, such as his favored mid-century Smith Corona Skywriter, whose compact size and hushed operation he says was meant for reporters hammering away on airplane flights.

Hanks is quick to add that his vision for Hanx Writer wasn’t to create a toy but rather a functional tool. So there’s a delete key and Auto Correct, and of course the ability to forward the masterpiece you’ve created.

The app’s designer, Stuart Westphal of Hitcents, the folks behind the Draw A Stickman game, says the double Oscar-winner’s mandate was simple. (source)

I uploaded 95 screencaptures of Tom’s role in his first movie, “He Knows You’re Alone” in 1980. Maybe I’m being sentimental but the scarf around his neck reminds me a lot of Woody’s scarf in Toy Story. You can check them out by clicking on the thumbnails below:
