“The Fountain” is an odyssey about a man’s thousand-year struggle to save the woman he loves. In three separate lives–Tomas the conquistador, Tommy the scientist, and Tom the explorer–Thomas is driven to discover the mysteries of life; all three stories converge into one truth as he comes to terms with life, death, love, and rebirth. The book is an extension of Aronofsky’s cinematic vision, and will contain production stills of the film’s stars Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz, original script, original art, and observations from creators Ari Handel and Darren Aronofsky. Edited by Darren Aronofsky, “The Fountain” is not so much a tie-in or a behind-the-scenes look at the film, but rather a thoughtful meditation on the film’s provocative themes of life and death and its singular visuals. “This is a graphic novel that was writen simultaneously with the movie script; both by Darren Aronofsky. Although the story in the GN is less congruent than the story in the movie, the art by Kent Williams is absolutely phenomenal.
This is my favorite movie of all time, and I’m sure a tatoo will stem from the art in the graphic novel.
I would suggest the movie over the graphic novel, if you only wanted to choose one medium in order to know this story. But that would just be silly. Do both, yo!”
