Black Widow is technically a prequel, which might seem like a step-back for the MCU. But Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says that “there are ways to do prequels that are less informative or answer questions you didn’t necessarily have, and then there are ways to do prequels where you learn all sorts of things you never knew before.” Feige likens the project to the Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul, saying: “I look at Better Call Saul as a wonderful example of a prequel that almost completely stands on its own apart from Breaking Bad because it informs you about so many things you didn’t know about before.”
For three days, starting on November 1, actors from the French street-theater company La Machine will escort a 10-meter-tall dragon marionette in a performance across the city of Calais, France. “Le Dragon de Calais,” a massive fire-breathing dragon built of steel and carved wood, stars in the tale of a fantasy creature that emerges from the sea and encounters the people of Calais. After the performance, the dragon will remain in the city, becoming a new tourist attraction.
The project begins with the city’s desire to improve its image. The influx of migrants a few years ago up to 10,000 made the city talk about the political scene, let alone the tourist guides.
In the light of the problem, the state and local authorities have decided to grant Calais a “compensation fund”, an area contract: subsidies of around 100 million euros. Spend by 2020. The city, which had a time bet on a large amusement park (too expensive), finally trusted the Nantes company “La Machine”, which focused on the creation of urban monsters: the Great Elephant of Nantes, the Minotaur landed in Toulouse or to Beijing, Brussels or Liverpool sent bestiaries …
To make Calais speak differently. The goal of Natacha Bouchart, mayor of the city, is to make this animal “come from another world”, to make it a point of attractiveness and pride: “ Calais wants to become and become a 21st century seaside resort As a reference tourist destination on the Opal Coast, it’s a project that will take our breath away. “
Because the project is big. It is even necessary to talk more about animals in the plural, since from 2022 two “ Lures of Travel ” are capable of transporting 25 people each, and in the middle of the cars to “6 or 7 km / h “to move. h “, then a” family of a dozen iguanas “will settle in the city, with professional visits, a restaurant area, a shop or indoor activities completing the installation.
At the end of the exhibition weekend,” the dragon will settle in Calais to live a few decades “, between the waterfront and a special transparent nave Overlooking the city every day in mid-December and carrying about fifty Calaisiens or tourists on its back for a paid ride of about 30 minutes, it will mainly travel in one-way streets.
The dragon needed a two-year project.

Netflix and the BBC has a teaser for a new miniseries on the count called, appropriately, Dracula. And while you may not think we need a new take on the classic blood-sucker, we encourage you to hold your judgments until you watch the teaser. It, truly, looks fucked up in all the best ways.
The new three-episode miniseries, which promises a classic, period take on Drac, comes from Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, who previously rebooted two other British properties with wild success: Doctor Who and Sherlock. They imbued those long-running franchises with frank modernism and magnetic performers, making stars out of David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch, respectively. Based on the raucous, quick-cut imagery jam-packed into this teaser, it looks as though Gatiss and Moffat ain’t holding anything back. And we’re willing to bet that Claes Bang (The Square), the Danish actor tapped to play the Count, is hoping some of that “Gatiss/Moffat turning European actors into stars” energy rubs off on him as he sinks his fangs into the role — and into hapless victims like The Crown‘s John Heffernan, who plays Dracula’s foe, Jonathan Harker.
The story for the series is set in 1897 and revolves around the “blood-drinking count from Transylvania who sets his sights on Victorian London.”
The series will consist of three 90-minute episodes
All Secrets Known, a new, limited-release bourbon distilled by Few Spirits master distiller Paul Hletko in collaboration with Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum-selling Seattle grunge pioneers ALICE IN CHAINS. Bottles feature a custom-designed label by artist Justin Helton.
All Secrets Known (SRP: $75/750 ml), a nod to the name of the opening track of ALICE IN CHAINS‘ 2009 gold-certified release “Black Gives Way To Blue”, is Few bourbon finished for six months in tequila barrels and bottled at the most rock and roll of proofs, 101 (50.5% ABV). Bold, sweet, and spicy bourbon top notes that have become the hallmark of Few and led to multiple category awards, are accentuated by grassy agave undertones.
The new All Secrets Known bourbon whiskey, according to those behind it, takes FEW Spirits’ regular bourbon offering and finishes it for six months in ex-tequila barrels before bottling it at 1o1 proof (50.5% ABV). The idea in creating such an expression as a tie in to Alice in Chains is that “there no two spirits that have a closer association with rock and roll than whiskey and tequila.” The bourbon is said to be “a nod to the name of the opening track of Alice In Chains’ 2009 certified Gold release Black Gives Way To Blue.”
