New news for Lord of the Rings fans
March 11, 2023
It seems that Destiny Guardians 2 is having a lot of fun with their spaceships and weapons with cool names and their impossible background story (again) is under attack, and it’s Zavala’s bad job to gather an army through a new human companion, that can defend a giant, white ball and elegant since February 28.
Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema have reached an agreement with Middle-Earth Embracer Group AB, owner of the rights to JRR Tolkien’s work, to make a film of the novel Mr. of the Rings. David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery became the delegate to break the news during calls to investors.
The deal had been in writing for several years and he intended to make “several” tapes based on JRR Tolkien’s books. We need more big-screen franchises. That’s the reason Zaslav broke the news, in a world-dominated film industry, Marvel and Star Wars -among others- and that has opened the door to more Harry Potter films in recent months. “Twenty years ago, New Line took an unprecedented leap of faith to bring to life Mr. of the Rings in a movie. The result is a series of historical films that generations of fans have embraced,” he said. Co-Chairs and CEO of Warner Bros. Photos Group Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy.
“However, despite all the scope and details depicted with love in both trilogies, the vast, complex, and enchanting cosmos JRR Tolkien dreamed of remains largely unexplored in the film. The ability to invite fans to delve deeper into the cinematic planet of Middle-earth is an honor, and we are delighted to partner with Middle-earth Enterprises and Embracer on this journey”. This news comes 20 years after the release of Mr. The Peter Jackson Rings Epic (2001-2003), which grossed $3 billion at the box office, won 17 Oscars, and it’s final, The Return of Monarch, won the most. historical films with Ben-Hur (1959) and Titanic (1997).
Help from Peter Jackson
While it is currently unknown who will take on the challenge (or the directors), Peter Jackson and his main assistants in the trilogy, such as Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, told Variety that Warner Bros. Stay informed every step of the way. “We hope to continue talking to hear your perspective on the progress of the franchise”.
2. Animated tape
Warner Bros Animation and New Line Cinema are currently working on the production of Mr. de los Anillos: Guerra de los Rohirrim. This anime-style film is set 2 centuries before the events of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy, focusing on the untold events that occurred during the bloody reign of the mighty King Rohan, Helm Hammerhand, as well as the construction of the Helm Abyss. among others. The film’s directors are Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell, Blade Runner: Black Lotus) and Oscar-winning Philippa Boyens, who was part of the editorial team of both Middle Earth trilogies. The theatrical release is scheduled for April 12, 2024, 21 years after the end of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, based on JRR Tolkien’s iconic book.
3. The Power rings
Amazon acquired the rights to develop a television series set in the world of J. R. R. Tolkien for 250 million dollars in 2018, ahead of Netflix under discussion. The streaming platform premiered the first season (of 5 planned) in September last year. Rings of Power has become an “unprecedented triumph” and a major topic of conversation throughout 2022 with HBO’s House of the Dragon, according to Amazon. Although it also received a huge array of criticism.
It hasn’t been easy for JD Payne and Patrick McKay, the couple of unknown screenwriters who convinced Prime Video Clip to hand over Amazon’s most current narrative plan, and J.A. Bayona, the Spanish director responsible for bringing back the We Look Forward to the first two episodes of the series and makes us forget Peter Jackson and his last trip to Middle-earth. The long and over-digitized recordings of The Hobbit have compromised the audiovisual legacy of The Lord of the Rings, for many the most relevant trilogy of godparents in the history of cinema. Believers can breathe easy: Rings of Power is a fun, exciting, and promising return to the world, created by J. R. R. Tolkien more than 70 years ago.
The atmosphere of the Jackson trilogy (most of the filming of the three films was completed before the attacks of 11 September, a political and socio-cultural event that would end up drastically damaging the tone of commercial cinema and more mature stories in later years) is for nothing that has now found the prequel inspired by Apps “The Lord of the Rings”, and the plot gaps that the creator left among the rest of his works, which take place in the Middle Earth. In the world after Trumpism, the covid-19, and the crisis of 2008, cynicism and violence (in all its aspects) prevail over good against evil and fantasies for all audiences that have always characterized the mythology of Tolkien. In the era of House of the Dragon, Legacy, and The Boys, launching a series as white, sentimental, and naive as Rings of Power is almost provocative. And also a blessing.
A once incredible prologue that sets Galadriel’s motifs and obsessions completely different from what we’ve seen on screen so far (Morfydd Clark, the spectacular revelation of the horror film Saint Maud, faces the impossible task of replacing Cate Blanchett (although, although she by no means seeks to imitate her), the Payne and McKay series faces its biggest problem: “Rings of Power” contains too much information to convey to an audience that does not have the virtue of knowing the source material.
If the Game of Thrones prequel chose a more familiar, focused, and adapted starting point (up to the repetition of the melody at first), then its direct competitor looks exactly like the beginning of the addiction to the first volume of Music from Ice. and Fire. Character presentations, environments, discoveries of new locations and references to Jackson’s initial trilogy (Bayon and a couple of showrunners, like us, pretend that The Hobbit doesn’t exist) saturate the first chapter of the series with information.
