A multitude of new images from The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power have been revealed.

“Amazon’s show, which debuts on Prime Video on September 2, is based not on a Tolkien novel per se but on the vast backstory he laid out in the appendices to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Five seasons will likely cost the studio well over $1 billion. That kind of budget might decimate most other studios, but Tolkien, like space travel, is a personal obsession for Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who’s among the richest people in the world. This is a big-ticket business venture that will allow him to create the most expensive, elaborate TV series ever made. While Jackson is not connected to the project, his movies, as well as their spiritual successor Game of Thrones, proved that there’s a massive audience for immersive fantasy. Of course, many have tried to capture that same audience, and few have survived or thrived.”

“In a new interview with GQ, Pattinson broke down his role in The Batman and what it all means for Bruce Wayne/Batman. ‘He’s kind of a weirdo as Bruce and a weirdo as Batman. In this, it’s sort of implied that he’s had a bit of a breakdown. But this thing he’s doing, it’s not even working,’ Pattinson said. ‘Like, it’s two years into it, and the crime has gotten worse since Bruce started being Batman. The people of Gotham think that he’s just another symptom of how shit everything is.'”

“Is there a modern animated show more resolutely unkillable than Futurama? David X. Cohen’s satiric spin on the world of tomorrow has had 3 lives already—its original, on Fox; the revival movies that started rolling out in 2007; and, finally, the two seasons that ran on Comedy Central from 2010 to 2013. (You could also argue for a fourth life, in the form of the single-episode Simpsons crossover the series got in 2014). Now, Hulu has decided that we simply haven’t gotten enough of Philip J. Fry just yet, announcing today that it’s granting the show yet another revival season.”
