Learnt an interesting thing today on this arabic course,
The original Arabic number system looked like this, the one we now use.
It was designed so each character had the corresponding number of angles to the number, so the number 1 has 1 angle, 2 has 2 angles, 3 has 3, 0 has none etc…
It is so obvious now, I’ve always assumed its one of those things that just is, with no logical explanation, but here it is, perfectly simple and satisfying

My jaw is legit on the floor right about now :D

This is actually how my first grade teacher taught me to count!!

I think our film can reach a wide variety of people. I feel like adults will like it, kids will like it, girls will like it, boys will like it. I hope all of these things are true. I also feel like all of them can dislike it. (laughter)

Can we talk for just a minute about how brilliant these two posters are?

Because…seriously.

Hannibal’s mouth is the focus of the poster for Season 1, and as we all know, Hannibal’s mouth is the center of his power. It is his ultimate weapon, how he consumes those he considers beneath him, how he controls and manipulates and exposes the pain of others so he can taste their pain, and while he is incarcerated, it becomes a literal weapon he uses to bite and brutalize and mangle. 

The rest of the poster is rich and sumptuous in its palette and pattern, elegant, indulgent, reflecting his manners and taste, both literally and metaphorically, with the napkin drawn up to his lips. Everything about the image is Hannibal. 

The focus in the second poster, by comparison, is Will’s eyes. The center of his power: his ability to see the truth of people, right down to their very core.

The rest of the poster reflects Will’s situation, both literally and metaphorically: the mask covers his mouth—it dims his mouth—not so that he cannot speak, but so that his words have no power. The unnatural lines of his confinement are repeated both before and behind him, in the lines of the padding and in the lines of the straightjacket. The colors are bleached almost to non-existence: it is a cold, colorless world he has found himself in, all but the stain of blood across the bottom that is Hannibal’s name. 

He is restricted in every way—except for his eyes, the very part of him that makes him so powerful.

And that is not a look of weakness in their depths.
