For some time now, a select number of series have been achieving a sufficient budget and subscribing to the necessary IP to transcend their television product label and become blockbusters. Today we can enjoy one of its exponents, with the premiere of the house of the dragon (prequel to Game of Thrones), while on the immediate horizon another two megatons can be seen: the one that aims to be its direct competition, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on Amazon, and Andor (under the Star Wars umbrella) on Disney+. There is another thing that unites these last two series: their time in theaters to increase the hype of the premiere. Not long ago we learned that, anticipating Andor’s arrival on streaming, several American theaters were going to re-release Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a spin-off of which Andor in turn acts as a spin-off. Now Deadline echoes that Amazon is also going to use the traditional window to precede the premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powertaking the first two episodes of the series (yes, those directed by our J. A. Bayonne). will this happen August 31just two days before the september 2 the rings of power debut in the Amazon Prime Video catalog. The event arises from a partnership between Amazon and the Cinemark movie theater chain. Cinemark has theaters in the United States, as well as in other Latin American territories, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. The first two episodes of The Rings of Power will reach all of them, on screens to be determined, although it is not yet known if they will be able to reach places like Spain through other cinemas. With 200 theaters in total, it will be a way to start the conversation before the world premiere, leaving everything ready for The Lord of the rings underpin the social phenomenon to which Amazon aspires after having left a millionaire to acquire the adaptation rights.
The rings of power is born from a complicated management that has only allowed the chain to narrate events unrelated to The Lord of the rings and The Hobbitlooking for other alternative writings of JRR Tolkien. That is why the resulting series will be set in the Second Age, during a period of relative peace where we will attend the forging of the rings, the fall of Númenor or the Last Alliance of Men and Elves to defeat Sauron. Amazon’s initial plan calls for five seasons of Rings of Power, so the series had better start garnering fans even before its global launch.Do you want to be up to date with all the latest movies and series?
