The Rings of Power

All about The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, the long-awaited series that premieres this year

Five years have passed since the news thrilled and surprised all Tolkien fans by equal measure. The secrecy surrounding the project all this time has only increased anticipation and enthusiasm. Finally, the time has come: the premiere of the series, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

A crazy budget, an overwhelming display of special effects, and a story that promises to delight fans and characters, both known and new, will surely conquer laptops, televisions, and smartphones worldwide.

Middle Earth returns. Amazon Prime Video, the streaming platform for the series, relies on the sequel to The Lord of the Rings to get many more viewers and new users as it is looking for self-propelled and robust content to entice people to subscribe.

“An ensemble cast of characters—some familiar and some new—must deal with the reappearance of evil in Middle-earth. From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains to the majestic forests of Lindon, from the island realm of Numenor to the farthest reaches of the map, these places and characters will forge legacies that will endure beyond their demise,’’ Amazon Prime said.

The Spanish film director, Juan Antonio Bayona, directs the first two chapters of this blockbuster, the most expensive in history and for which it is estimated that the streaming platform has disbursed more than 700 million dollars in its first season, including the acquisition of its production and rights. The result is a visually spectacular glory fantasy.

What Tolkien book were they based on to create the series?

Unlike the Lord of the Rings films or the Hobbit spin-off trilogy, Rings of Power isn’t based on a specific book. The series will not focus on most of the beloved characters from the original trilogy, as it predates its time. Considering that each era covers about a thousand years, it is surprising that the characters coincide. You won’t see Bilbo, Legolas, Frodo, or Aragorn in the series, but there are some repetitive characters, although they are much younger than we already know.

When and where to see it?

The first two chapters arrive on Prime Video on September 1. The rest will be released at the rate of one per week.

What story will The Rings of Power tell?

From what we understand, we will see how the 20 rings of power are forged: seven for the dwarves, three for the elves, nine for the Men, and one for Sauron, whom we will surely see gain the power that makes him the terrible opponent that we know. You can watch the series now by clicking HERE.

The story about The Lord of the Rings:

It takes place in an environment located in the Third Age of the Sun of Middle earth, a fictional and fantastic place populated by men and other anthropomorphic races such as elves, hobbits, or dwarves, as well as many other real and fantastic creatures.

The story recounts the journey of the main character, Frodo Baggins, hobbit of the Shire, to destroy the One Ring and the consequent war that the enemy would provoke to recover it since it is the greatest source of the power of its creator, the dark Lord Sauron.

Amazon Prime Video pronounces 25 million people worldwide watched The Rings of Power on its first day of release. The company communicates that is the service’s top premiere ever.

Duckwrth Releases New Anthem

Critically acclaimed Los Angeles rapper Duckwrth releases his new feel-good anthem “Find A Way” feat. Alex Mali and Radio Ahlee today.

Listen to “Find A Way” feat. Alex Mali and Radio Ahlee: HERE

“In this journey we call life, us as humans will inevitably fall off the path. Sometimes due to forces outside of our control. But we always find our way. This is the theme song to Our Comeback. Let’s Find A Way,” says Duckwrth on the track.

The South Central sonic insurgent delivers a global anthem powered by pulsating analog synths, organic tribal percussion, nimble rhymes, and a soaring refrain. The combination of percussive stomps and soulful choruses immediately energizes creating an uplifting, upbeat, and undeniable track.

Over the last five years, LA-based wunderkind Duckwrth has quickly risen up the ranks as a promising star of the future of music. His collection of critically acclaimed projects including Nowhere (2015,) I’m Uugly (2016), Xtra Uugly (2017) and The Falling Man EP (2019), have transcended streaming platforms and landed in films, TV series, and brand ad campaigns and have received critical acclaim from a vast amount of outlets including NPR, The FADER, Complex, XXL and more. This cumulation has led the rapper to become an international touring staple, headlining shows globally, and performing at Austin City Limits and opening for superstars Billie Eilish and Anderson Paak. Duckwrth’s music has appeared on shows like CW’s All American, HBO’s Insecure and Real Time with Bill Maher, and his song “Start A Riot” was featured on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. His music has appeared in campaigns for the likes of Cadillac, Microsoft, Peloton, Amazon, and Apple Music, and he’s worked with fashion legacies like Levi’s, Vans and Fila, as well as high fashion men’s suit designer Paul Smith.

Its first production is the Jonas Brothers documentary Chasing Happiness for Amazon Prime Video.

New Travel Channel Series ‘Legend Hunter’

With an avid thirst for adventure and innate curiosity, wildlife biologist and explorer Pat Spain is leaving his lab to uncover answers to fascinating unsolved riddles, historic conundrums and mythic events in the new Travel Channel series “Legend Hunter.” Premiering Tuesday, January 8, 2019 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the seven-episode series showcases Spain as he uses his scientific expertise and state-of-the-art technology to investigate infamous tales of murder, theft and unexplained events. He embarks on a hunt to recover a $20 million stolen Irish fortune, finds new evidence that could reveal the identity of Jack the Ripper and goes on a quest for a werewolf-like creature rumored to haunt the residents of Elkhorn, Wisconsin.
As the great nephew of Charles Fort – the “Prophet of the Unexplained” – Spain carries on the family legacy by questioning mainstream science and investigating things that science often writes off as impossible. Now, with “Legend Hunter,” he will consider unusual explanations of bizarre phenomena to crack open some of history’s most mind-boggling mysteries and crimes.
“As a scientist, I’ve spent my life investigating some of mankind’s greatest oddities, bizarre creatures and mythical beasts, tribal rituals and far flung places,” said Spain. “Now I get the chance to take on some of the world’s iconic mysteries. Who was Jack the Ripper? Who really killed Lizzie Borden’s parents? These are questions that have been burning in my mind since I was a child, and I’m going right to the source to try and find answers – with exclusive access to people, archives and crimes scenes. And we have some extraordinary results that I can’t wait to share with the world!”
In the series premiere, Spain reopens the infamous Lizzie Borden murder case to find out who really took an ax to her father and stepmother. He gains exclusive access to Lizzie’s home, belongings and previously sealed family documents. Spain starts his investigation from scratch, as though the crime happened yesterday. Then, using psychographic profiling and statistical theory, among other tools, he re-examines the original suspects. Spain reenacts what they supposedly were doing at the time of the murders, their ‘alibis’ and whether these accounts are actually plausible. Through his relentless digging, Spain unearths a surprising new suspect never before connected to the case!

AMAZON’S THE GRAND TOUR

Has a show or movie ever energized you to seek adventure beyond the screen? The Grand Tour, a Prime Original that follows three intrepid former car journalists on their high speed escapades around the world, has attracted fans ready to hit the road for their own adrenaline fueled adventures. Amazon uncovered a few fun facts about Prime members who have streamed The Grand Tour, and we’re spreading the word on where to get inspiration for your next trip to the great outdoors. These trends were obtained by comparing the purchase behavior of a sample of 100K Grand Tour viewers on Amazon to that of 100K Non-Grand Tour viewers.

Amazon learned Grand Tour viewers are more likely to seek extreme outdoor hobbies and live in areas known for adventure in the great outdoors than those Prime members who haven’t streamed the show yet. In 2017, Grand Tour viewers spent 24% more in Amazon’s Sports & Outdoor store than an average non-Grand Tour viewer. And these Grand Tour viewers are not just novices of the outdoors; they purchased more brands for top outdoor athletes and serious outdoor enthusiasts including GoPro, Black Diamond, Osprey, Patagonia and Thule than did non-Grand Tour viewers. The largest percentage differences in spend on outdoor equipment between Grand Tour viewers and non-Grand Tour viewers were on cycling gear (53%), rock climbing gear (45%) and skiing and snowboarding gear (44%).

It is no surprise Grand Tour viewers in the US are living in places that are known as gateways to adventure. Washington – home of Mt. Rainier, Olympic National Park and neighbor to the Pacific Ocean, andColorado – land of the Rocky Mountains and Mesa Verde National Park, had the highest number of Grand Tour season two viewers per capita in the US. These states have an abundance of activities for those seeking an outdoor and adventurous lifestyle.

Grand Tour viewers are more likely to drive cars that are compact and adventure-ready and steer clear of the family cars. When purchasing automobile parts in Amazon’s Automotive store, customers can add information about their current car to the Amazon Garage for shopping parts and accessories designed specifically for that vehicle. The Subaru Impreza was the top car model that was more likely to be added to a Grand Tour viewer’s garage than a Non-Grand Tour viewer’s in 2017.

If you have been looking for motivation to dust off your bike, climb a new route, wax your skis or take the family camping, check out The Grand Tour for some adventure inspiration and see you in the great outdoors!
