With Prime Video’s prequel series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power arriving in early September, it stands to reason that there will be renewed interest in JRR Tolkien’s original writings on Second Age of Middle-earth. Now is the perfect time to The Fall of Numenorwhich brings together all of Tolkien’s work on the subject.

The writings were originally edited by the author’s son Christopher Tolkien, with this new volume also calling on writer and Tolkien expert Brian Sibley as well as renowned artist Alan Lee to build on it. “Since the first publication of The Silmarillion 45 years ago, I followed with passion the meticulous curation and scholarship of Christopher Tolkien in publishing a tremendous history of his father’s writings on Middle-earth,” Sibley said in a press release. by HarperCollins. “I am honored to add to this authoritative library with The Fall of Numenor. I hope that by collecting many threads of Second Age tales into one book, readers will discover – or rediscover-the rich tapestry of characters and events that are a prelude to the drama of the War of the Ring as told in The Lord of the Rings.”

According to the publisher, “Using ‘The Tale of Years’ in The Lord of the Rings as a starting point, Brian Sibley has assembled from the various published texts in a way that recounts for the very first time in a single volume the story of the Second Age of Middle-earth, the events of which would eventually lead to the Third Age , and The War of the Ring, told in The Lord of the Rings.”

Here’s a preview of the book cover with illustrations by Lee, who won the Best Production Design Academy Award in 2004 for his work on The Lord of the Rings movies.

Mumbai, first published June 18, 2022, 2:29 p.m. IST

The Hindi film industry has had films that could not run ahead of Southern industry films. However, when Kartik Aryan and Kiara Advani-star Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 changed, Bollywood’s dry run at the box office finally came to an end. The success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has been such that even after a month of its release, the movie has continued to make and break records and at the same time hit money. And the addition of another feather in the hat was added as the movie managed to beat every Southern movie at the box office even on the 29th day. On the other hand, Nikamma, released on Friday, failed to attract the public. Take a look at how the movies performed at the box office on Friday.

Nikamma: Abhimanyu Dassani’s “Nikamma”, which was released on Friday, failed to captivate audiences. Directed by Sabir Khan, the film failed to cross the Rs 1 crore mark on its first day. According to reports, the movie ‘Nikamma’, made on a budget of Rs 15 crore, did business of just Rs 70 lakh on its first day of release across the country.

Vicra: Vikram, starring Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, Narayan, Chemban Vinod and Kalidas Jayaram, was released a few weeks ago and has been dominating the box office ever since. The multi-star action drama film managed to attract all kinds of audiences. Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the film grossed around Rs 350 crore globally, while the film’s collection reached Rs 140 crore in Tamil Nadu.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2: Kartik Aaryan crossed the Rs 175 crore mark in its fourth week. The movie, which was released on May 20, earned Rs 1.1 crore on the 29th day.

Janhit Mein Jaari: Nusrratt Bharuccha’s film failed to attract audiences to the theatre. Made on a budget of one crore, this film has so far managed to make a total revenue of Rs 3.33 crore in India.

‘Samrat Prithviraj’ Box Office Collection: Akshay Kumar’s Period Drama Collects Rs 1 Crore on Second Monday | Hindi Movie News http://www.repertoire-web.com/samrat-prithviraj-box-office-collection-akshay-kumars-period-drama-collects-rs-1-crore-on-second-monday-hindi-movie-news/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 09:44:00 +0000 http://www.repertoire-web.com/samrat-prithviraj-box-office-collection-akshay-kumars-period-drama-collects-rs-1-crore-on-second-monday-hindi-movie-news/ Despite its high profile and the anticipation surrounding its release, Akshay Kumar’s magnum opus, “Samrat Prithviraj”, opened below expectations at the box office.

The period drama has now collected Rs 1 crore on the second Monday, bringing its overall box office collection to Rs 62.72 crore. The film is expected to do business of Rs 11 crore in its second week. However, the drop will be around 80% this time, according to a new report from BoxofficeIndia.com.

The film focuses on his battles against Mohammed de Ghor in the 12th century. The film also stars Manushi Chhillar in his Bollywood debut except for Sanjay Dutt, Sonu Sood and Manav Vij.

Day of the Devs 2022 brings a stellar collection of personal games and artistic indies http://www.repertoire-web.com/day-of-the-devs-2022-brings-a-stellar-collection-of-personal-games-and-artistic-indies/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 14:40:15 +0000 http://www.repertoire-web.com/day-of-the-devs-2022-brings-a-stellar-collection-of-personal-games-and-artistic-indies/

Many Summer Game Fest titles are sure to focus on triple-A reveals and Geoff Keighley’s pocket-sized world premiere trailer, but make no mistake – Summer Game Fest is a collaborative celebration of gaming across the board. Part of that collaborative spirit comes from Day of the Devs, the annual independent celebration event led by Double Fine and iam8bit who have pooled their resources to bring Summer Game Fest – Play Days to life in person.

A selection of eight indie games featured in the Day of the Devs 2022 digital stream hung in the Play Days warehouse, alongside Street Fighter 6 kiosks and Bandai Namco demos. Some are autobiographical, some are organizational, and one was about teaching a fly to play guitar (sort of). They all rocked, but here are a few of my favorites.

animal wells

Animal Well is a game about natural curiosity and organic discovery – if minimalist indie darlings like Fez and Tunic make it to your top ten list, then Animal Well will find a spot on that list before you know it. In its first moments, the game isn’t taxing or complicated enough to warrant a pen and paper or a notepad on your phone, but what is immediately present is the feeling of being in a world whose you know nothing.


Your pixelated protagonist explores metroidvania environments comprised of moody neon blues and noir nature backdrops – but dig deeper into the world and as you continue to explore you’ll encounter hostile entities and statue obelisks in the form of creatures. uncomfortably detailed animals. The figures. Animal Well isn’t a horror game, but the sense of tension and unfamiliarity you get from these games is here in spades, and only promises to be a bigger part of the full version.


I could already feel how extremely autobiographical Birth was before its solo developer Madison Karrh revealed it to me. A peeled open diary revealed thoughts of loneliness and uncertainty about being a new person in a new place, hitting far too close to home to be pure fiction. The game is based on Karrh’s initial experience of moving to Chicago, and you can see that reflected in the game’s aesthetic.

This isn’t the part where you collect fractured pieces of a reassembled monster spine or encounter townspeople with floating animal skulls for heads (I’ve never been to Chicago, so I could be wrong) , but rather the row of apartment buildings you click through to visit new levels, or the quaint, pastel cafes and lounges that hide inside those buildings.

Each room you explore has an initial sense of familiarity and an immediate “wait-wait-what?” when you notice the macabre characters and indefinable elements that populate the screen. Each of these environments is also home to a different type of puzzle – and like any great emotional puzzle adventure, these moments serve as clever drops of interaction and peeling back layers of narrative. Birth is a look into a person’s life, but it’s a life story in which it’s all too easy to see yourself.

Desta: the memories between

The creators of Monument Valley and Assemble With Care ustwo games have always been mobile-first with their games. The latest, Desta, is no exception – before a PC version arrives, this dream-fueled tactical roguelike lives exclusively on the new mobile games service Netflix. Don’t expect another simple puzzle game that changes perspective. Desta is an ambitious console-quality game.

Stages see you dive into a dreamlike realm filled with Desta’s memories, both good and bad. Close friends, old exes, bitter acquaintances and unforgettable teachers are not only your group of allies, but also the enemies you fight against. Don’t expect swords, guns, or fireballs in Desta, though – the turn-based tactical gameplay is fueled by non-lethal abilities and light-up sport balls that you hook and stab to deal damage to your enemies.

Desta: memories between gameplay

Desta’s pastel illustrations and character drama were enough to keep me invested, but the icing on the cake is really how the grid-style movement combines with physics-based ball throws and character abilities to creating combat moments that were way more dynamic than I expected. I can’t wait to see how this all plays out in the full game.

time passes

A day before I could sit down and play Time Flies, I walked past the TV the demo was on and saw nothing but a white background and pixelated black text that said “You are in Italy. Your life expectancy is 83 seconds. I burst out laughing, took a picture and couldn’t stop thinking about it for the rest of the day.

The next day, when I finally got to play the game, it was clear that the screen I saw was not accidental humor out of context. In Time Flies, you control a housefly and have only a few seconds of life in front of you to tackle a huge log of tasks: getting rich, making friends, reading a book, etc. The mere sight of a small cluster of pixels floating around a black and white house as I guide it with the left stick was pretty funny – but every interaction I discovered that led to a task completed m brought a smile from start to finish.

Time Flies record player screenshot

Land on a guitar string and learn to play the guitar, land on a spilled drop of wine and get drunk, then collapse to the ground after your life minute is up. I was addicted to reloading the level and looking for all the interactions I could find. At one point, I knocked a loose book off a shelf with my little fly body. The book was in Braille, and crawling through it revealed a passage about surrounding yourself with people who make you happy. I smiled, took a picture and couldn’t stop thinking about it for the rest of the day.

It was really just scratching the surface, though. Be sure to check out all the games featured in the Day of the Devs 2022 digital stream.

Christopher John Rogers Resort Collection 2023 http://www.repertoire-web.com/christopher-john-rogers-resort-collection-2023/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 14:08:55 +0000 http://www.repertoire-web.com/christopher-john-rogers-resort-collection-2023/

Joy, pleasure, exuberance. As the world shifted back to post-pandemic, designers have strived to channel those feelings into their clothing. For Christopher John Rogers, it all seems to come quite naturally. He raced down the track last night, jumping and pirouetting and enjoying his standing ovation.

It was Rogers’ first IRL show in over two years. A shift to the pre-season schedule and Omicron’s plot twist have delayed his comeback so far, but he had the whole team cheering for his comeback. Prabal Gurung, Victor Glemaud, Hillary Taymour, Peter Do, Raul Lopez and the creators of Oscar de la Renta all sat front row. Most of them have been back on the New York Fashion Week calendar since last September.

So backstage after the show, there was a sense of making up for lost time. Rogers exchanged hugs, wiped away tears and posed with what looked like his 55 models. About his collection he said: “I meant that everything can exist together, everything makes sense if you want it to. I love the idea of ​​multiplicity and that so much through a specific scope can shine.

Karlie Kloss kicked things off in a purple coat, whose oversized, double-breasted proportions were extroverted to the extreme. Tailoring played a big role, but Rogers is agnostic when it comes to silhouette. Single-breasted trouser suits exuding a masculine look mixed with other more feminine shapes with dropped lapels, back gathers and drapes and, in a few cases, trousers. He cut trench coats in bold floral prints, the colors of which were picked up in bright sheepskin dusters.

Even without the benefit of the catwalks, Rogers has created some of the most framed trends of the past two years. It was thanks to his extraordinary sense of color and his eye for graphic patterns, both of which were on full display in this collection’s range of striped knits, that he juxtaposed in more fashionable ways with striped pieces. checks and/or tights.

Another thing designers have been talking about these days is ease. None of us, they’re sure, are ready to give up the sartorial comforts we’ve come to rely on during Covid. Rogers might disagree. Aside from sweater dresses and silk pajamas, ease doesn’t interest him. In other words: his clothes attract people for whom ease has no interest.

From start to finish, this show delivered the drama, but there are a few special numbers worth mentioning. Among them: a 1930s-style floral-print tea dress and a madras-check silk shantung dress. And I bet he’s already getting calls for the strapless dress with a sunflower yellow bodice and wide horizontal stripes of coral, fuchsia and citrine circling its ball skirt.

Kamal Haasan’s star breaks Rs 150 crore worldwide http://www.repertoire-web.com/kamal-haasans-star-breaks-rs-150-crore-worldwide/ Mon, 06 Jun 2022 05:40:00 +0000 http://www.repertoire-web.com/kamal-haasans-star-breaks-rs-150-crore-worldwide/ Kamal Haasan star “Vikram” has been buzzing the internet for over a month, and the action drama was released on Friday, June 3.

The multilingual release reportedly grossed over 60 crore in Tamil Nadu and 10 crore each in Kerala and Karnataka to become the highest grossing Tamil film of 2022 in both states.

Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the action drama also has Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, Narain, Kalidas Jayaram and Chemban Vinod in pivotal roles with Suriya appearing in a special performance. Anirudh Ravichander’s music also benefited the film.

Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar is currently awaiting audience reaction to his recently released film, Samrat Prithviraj. The hunk has been on his toes for the past few weeks as he’s been busy promoting his movie with his co-star, Manushi Chillar. Apart from them, the film also featured actors Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood in the lead roles. Samrat Prithviraj was theatrically released on June 3, 2022 across the country in three different languages ​​namely Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

Written and directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the historical drama is based on the poem, Prithviraj Raso, composed by the 12th century poet, Chand Bardai. A highly invested project of Yash Raj Films (YRF), the film is based on the life story of the great warrior, Prithviraj Chauhan. The first reviews of the film, Samrat Prithviraj are out now, let’s take a look at Akshay’s early period drama review.

The film revolves around the life of the last Hindu king, Samrat Prithviraj Chauhan, a character played by Akshay Kumar. The 12th century ruler of Ajmer, Prithviraj had fallen in love with Rajkumari Sanyogita, and the moment she returned his love, the two galloped off as he claimed her to be his. Thus, the knight of Sanyukta in shining armor had saved her from the wrath of her father, Jaichand. The two-and-a-half-hour film, Samrat Prithviraj, features high-pitched dialogue, elaborate period costumes, and plenty of fight scenes. The main antagonist, Mohammad Ghori played by Manav Vij, heralds war as he is sparked by Prithviraj’s decision to give refuge to his brother, who had fled with the sultan’s mistress.


Although the film is loosely based on fact, it lacks a larger vision and greater integrity. The storyline contrasted with the bravery and proud journey of the great warrior as it involved some heroism. The film gets off to a good start with a fight scene between Akshay and a lion, but the excitement drops after the scene, only to increase in the second half. Additionally, there was no separate introduction of the protagonist and antagonist, rather it was an array of sequences played out without any buildup.

On its first day at the box office, Samrat Prithviraj collected a good amount between Rs 10.30 crores and Rs 10.80 crores. However, it was the public reaction that grabbed the headlines the most. Social media is filled with mixed reactions as some fans praise the film for its plot and direction, on the other hand, others claim that it is soulless and monotonous.
