The Dubai Museum of the Future becomes global destination for inventors and entrepreneurs
If you’re headed to Dubai in the next couple years, you might want to stop by the Museum of the Future, a space filled with “innovation labs” that will highlight the best in smart cities, energy and transport.
It’s no surprise that Dubai would take this 21st century World’s Fair-like approach — it’s probably the most artificial, manufactured place on the planet (sorry, Vegas). So it makes total sense that they’d just go ahead and make it official with a museum about things that haven’t happened yet.
The plans were revealed today by His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, VP and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai. The Museum will open in 2017 in the Emirates Towers area near Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.
“The Museum of the Future will be an incubator for ideas and real designs, a driver for innovation and a global destination for inventors and entrepreneurs,” said Sheikh Mohammad at the launch, according to Gulf News. They report that the Museum’s motto will be “See the future, create the future.”
Movie Prediction: Natalie Portman faces Annihilation, materializing horror fans dark dreams
More exciting news released on the production of director Alex Garland’s Sci-Fi Thriller “Annihilation”. The film is an adaptation of the novel of the same name, written by Jeff
VanderMeer. Alex Garland is notable for his work on “Ex Machina”, “28 Days Later”, “Dredd” and“Sunshine”. “Annihilation” entered production in 2015. Earlier news reports reveal that Natalie Portman (“V for Vendetta”, “Black Swan”, “Star Wars: Episode III –Revenge of the Sith”) and Gina Rodriguez (“Jane The Virgin”, “Interstate”, “Filly Brown”) will star.
News reveal that Tessa Thompson of “Creed” fame will also join the crew. Of course, this has yet to be confirmed.
For those unfamiliar with “Annihilation”, it is a novel written by Jeff VanderMeer. The story follows a small group of women; an anthropologist, a surveyor, a psychologist, and a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain, record all observations of their surroundings and one another. Above all avoid they mustn’t risk getting contaminated by Area X itself. Below is a thorough description of the novel.
Annihilation, the Novel Synopsis:
Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the las vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide, the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer.They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers―they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding―but it’s the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.
Paramount picked up the film adaptation to Annihilation”. Production begins Spring of 2016. Unfortunately, this will pose a conflict for Gina Rodriguez from starring in “Star Wars: Episode VIII”. On the bright side, “Annihilation” could be her biggest moment yet since “Jane the Virgin”. The film will be written by Garland and VanderMeer, and produced by Scott Rudin.
