Cinema News publishers offer their readers a selection of the most interesting news of the past week (05.09-11.09.2022), as well as new movies and TV series.
The "Lord of the Rings" film adaptation set an all-time record
One of the most anticipated film projects of 2022, the "Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power" series has set an all-time Amazon record. At any rate, the company itself was quick to announce this by releasing viewing figures for the first time in its history. It turned out that the two premiere episodes were watched by 25 million subscribers worldwide. True, Amazon clarified whether we were talking about full viewings, or just a few minutes of the show. It's also not known what the previous record was, which means it's unclear what the advantage of "Lord of the Rings" was. In short, there are many mysteries left, but there is no doubt that the prequel to the full-length trilogy has attracted a lot of attention from fans of J.R.R. Tolkien and movies based on his works.
The stars of the film "Avatar 2: The Way of the Water" had to learn not only diving, but also parkour
Performer one of the leading roles in the sci-fi movie "Avatar 2: The Way of the Water" Sigourney Weaver said that the project participants not only had to learn to hold their breath for a long time to remove the water without breathing apparatus, but also to master parkour. Given the actress' age, such experiments seem very brave. But Weaver says she knew what she was getting into, because her longtime friend James Cameron always gets his way with actors, and under his guidance, it is always interesting to learn completely unfamiliar to her before. How successful "parkour" at the stars of "Avatar 2" will become clear in December 2022, when the sequel to the highest-grossing film in history will be released.
Tesla founder Elon Musk trashed the TV series "Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power
The famous entrepreneur Elon Musk kept company with those viewers who were unhappy with the first episodes of the series "The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power. He was quite harsh in his characterizations and even stated that writer J.R.R. Tolkien was "turning over in his coffin." However, unlike most critics, he was not happy with the racial diversity among the elves and other inhabitants of Middle-earth, but with the fact that the weight of the male characters looked extremely ridiculous. "Almost every male hero is either a coward or a jerk or both. Only Galadriel is brave, smart and sweet," Musk noted. He may be right, but it is also possible that this is an element of a campaign to confront Amazon owner Jeff Bezos, with whom Musk shares the lead in the list of the richest people on the planet.
In the series "House of the Dragon," green thumbs have been discovered
In the literal sense of the word. The culprit of the "celebration" was King Viserys, who according to the plot was missing a few fingers on his hand. But the performer of this role, Paddy Considine, was fine with his fingers, and his character had to "amputate" them with the help of computer graphics. It was for this purpose that a special compound of green color was applied to the fingers, allowing to make the King fingerless at the post-production stage. But apparently, despite the huge investment in visual effects, someone from the specialists forgot to do this, and from the attention of the audience this obvious gaffe could not escape. So the story with the Starbucks glass that appeared on the table in an episode of Game of Thrones actually repeated itself. HBO promised a quick fix, but as they say, "there is still a problem.
Starlight from "The Boys" faces misogyny
Actress Erin Moriarty, who played the character Starlight (or Star) on the sci-fi series "The Boys," has faced "misogynistic trolling." In her own words, there have been a lot of offensive comments on social media. "I really feel dehumanized," she complained. "The Boys" creator Eric Kripke rushed to her aid, who, not too shy in his language, sent the trolls to all possible letters and advised them not to watch the show. "If you can't be nice, then don't watch 'The Boys,' we don't need you," he said. Anthony Starr, who played Patriot on the show, took a similarly tough stance. It is to be hoped that such impressive support will help Starlight shine in the next seasons of the series "The Boys.
