Patti Smith and Klaus Biesenbach

Squeezing all 37 of these artists, visionaries, icons and iconoclasts into our September 30th anniversary issue was about the best birthday present we can imagine. (Shooting everywhere from Wyoming to Tokyo was a sweet party favor.) But as Patti Smith suggests in this feature, this is no exhaustive list. OGs are everywhere: some have already changed the world, some are building toward their moment and some are reading this magazine right now. So to the OGs featured here, and to all fierce, fabulous trailblazers out there, this one’s for you.

Horror is a film genre seeking to elicit a negative emotional reaction from viewers by playing on the audience’s primal fears. Horror films often feature scenes that startle the viewer; the macabre and the supernatural are frequent themes. Thus they may overlap with the fantasy, supernatural, and thriller genres. Horror films often deal with the viewer’s nightmares, hidden fears, revulsions and terror of the unknown. Plots within the horror genre often involve the intrusion of an evil force, event, or personage, commonly of supernatural origin, into the everyday world. Prevalent elements include ghosts, aliens, vampires, werewolves, demons, vicious animals, monsters, zombies, cannibals, and serial killers. Conversely, movies about the supernatural are not necessarily always horrific.

A 3D or 3-D (three-dimensional) film or S3D (stereoscopic 3D) film[1] is a motion picture that enhances the illusion of depth perception. Derived from stereoscopic photography, a regular motion picture camera system is used to record the images as seen from two perspectives (or computer-generated imagery generates the two perspectives in post-production), and special projection hardware and/or eyewear are used to provide the illusion of depth when viewing the film. 3D films are not limited to feature film theatrical releases; television broadcasts and direct-to-video films have also incorporated similar methods, especially since 3D television and Blu-ray 3D.

The Dark Knight Rises

On the rare occasions when blockbuster demi-god Christopher Nolan emerges from his bleak dream-cave to unveil non-revelatory revelations about next year’s The Dark Knight Rises, the director has worked overtime to explain that Rises will be a genuine conclusion to his version of the Batman mythos. A new poster for the film makes that idea explicit. Batman’s mask lies on the ground, broken. In the background, we can see apparently unintelligible villain Bane walking away. The tagline is simple: “The Legend Ends.” It’s an interesting, uncompromising sales pitch — it’ll be intriguing to see how Rises plays in the same summer as the candy-colored superhero bromance The Avengers. It also adds more fuel to the main question hovering over Rises: Could they actually kill off Batman?
