Yeah, there’s Captain America The Winter Soldier, Godzilla, and X-Men: Days of Future Past coming this summer movie season, but I think the real movie-to-see might just be the superhero sequel everyone is talking about – The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Check out the final theatrical trailer after the jump…
I don’t think I’ve gotten a good handle on this particular pop-culture world or its increasing popularity over recent years. Still, I do love its visual aesthetic: Victorian era and/or ol’ West appeal, mashed with retro-future, steam-powered technology gizmos. Brass and metal. Gears and cogs.
In fact, Biff Bam Pop! has its own Steampunk representative, writer Marie Gilbert (the Steampunk Granny), who would do much better at describing the genre than I ever could.
Still, that doesn’t change the fact that I know something cool when I see it – and that cool thing comes out today…with a musical element you might not have expected.
Steampunk, meet famous Canadian prog rockers, Rush.
Today, let’s all meet Clockwork Angels.
