Feb. 23 - Bale is Batman
Christian Bale comments on EQ's Director

Bale made the following comment at WonderCon (thanks to gapeach1939 for posting this on the boards...)

"One fan asked if Bale had ever imagined he would be playing a super hero considering all of his darker roles. Bale said that he never would have thought it would happen and that a bizarre bet even came up about it. "'Equilibrium' director Kurt Wimmer once told me I would one day play Batman." Bale told Wimmer that he would bet him $500 dollars that he wouldn't and it would be the easiest money he ever made. He lost and now he has become the new Bat hope."

Feb. 19 - Equilibrium Fan Fiction
Immune - Chapter 8 by Judas Austin

Kevin found himself staring down a pair of twin pistols. He tried to swallow in a suddenly dry throat. If he was going to end it, he wanted to do so on his terms, not the terms of some bastard Cleric.

New Equilibrium MOD & Gamers Forum

JenGe wrote : Well, Rico asked me to create another private board so that his team could ask some people to assist in testing the new MOD ... but I thought it was time that the MOD had a public board of its own. This way the MOD team & those eager for it can communicate here if they wish.

I will also be moving other game related threads into this forum that are not directly related to the MOD such as the recent one about Devil May Cry 3 and 100 Bullets. Enjoy...

Equilibrium Fansite Newsletter - Feb. 2005

February's newsletter has been sent out...

Dear Equilibrium Fans,

February marks the second year since the site was created.  What began as a minor attempt to assist the film has become a full fledge hobby, community, and obsession.  I never really envisioned that two years later I would still be working on the site and enjoying every minute of it.  In January I added not only more stills but also a 6 minute download of behind the scenes footage from the production.  It is because of your support that this is so rewarding for me.  Thank you!!  Also don't miss below an opportunity to add your talent to the soon to be released Equilibrium MOD: Hall of Mirrors - JenGe

Director Uwe Boll Mentions Equilibrium

Uwe Boll, the director of Alone in the Dark, discusses Equilibrium's influence in his new film...

...I love stuff like the shoot-out in the loft where you see only the muzzle flashes is basically an homage to Equilibrium with Christian Bale where you have something like this. Here's the thing, I always try to, [if you] say it negative, I steal from other movies, but on the other hand, I think I try to bring some elements in the movies so that it's not going from the first minute to the last minute in the same style or in the same mood. I think with Alone in the Dark, we have horror, we have action, we have a little thriller element, we have a few [different] elements coming together.

Jan. 28 - Site Update
Quote Addition to Gun Kata Page

The following  has been added to the Gun Kata page...

From an Interview with Kurt Wimmer @ CHUD.com

What I based the Grammaton Clerics on was sort of a cross-section of a number of the aesthetic warriorhoods that existed throughout history like the mamluks who were slave warriors and were often castrated, which is not to say they felt nothing, but there were certainly some things they didn't feel. They certainly had an altered emotional state and the Knights Templar, the Teutonic knights you know, people who had taken an aesthetic religious vow and are really, purely "Warriors of God." Most relevantly, of course, are the samurai and their Bushido code. Obviously, the samurai were required at a moment's notice to commit seppuku if the shogun ordered it and in order to do that, you have to have a certain dispassionate take, I believe, on the material world. You'd have to assume that these people looked at their weapons as essential and integral tools of the trade.

Behind the Scenes Production Video for Equilibrium

This is still a work in progress so it will be sometime before they are an official part of the site.  For those who are interested or have a knowledge of the subject my first attempt at a downloadable video file can be found on the message board - Working on Production Videos...  It is a five minute rough blocking for one of the nether sequences with Jim Vickers.  He is being directed through the action by Kurt Wimmer.

Jan. 18 - Equilibrium Fan Fic
Immune - Chapter 7 by Judas Austin

Kevin didn't answer. His brain seemed to have shut down. He vaguely remembered DuPont saying something about corrupting a member of the Council, but he hadn't paid any real attention to it. He supposed it was because he was so used to the idea of Barrett being a sense offender that he tended to forget that other people didn't or weren't supposed to know.

Equilibrium Fansite Newsletter - Jan. 2005

January's newsletter was sent out this morning...
2004 has been a monumental year for the site. We passed the 1000 member mark on the message board and dramatically increased the content thanks to fans as well as those who worked on the film. I am constantly amazed at what people contribute. Already though 2005 looks to surpass last year as submissions continue at a steady pace, constantly keeping me busy. To those of you who add to the boards & the site my gratitude is ever yours!! - JenGe
