  The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power [read more]
  There's been a Mordor
  Prime Video's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power officially has a name and it hints at what's to come.

The television series' complete title was unveiled today, and the significance behind the subtitle will not be lost on J.R.R. Tolkien fans, foreshadowing an epic story that welds the major events of Tolkien's Second Age together: the forging of the iconic rings.

The multi-season drama - The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power - will premiere exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries around the world in multiple languages on Friday, September 2, with new episodes available weekly.

"This is a title that we imagine could live on the spine of a book next to J.R.R. Tolkien's other classics. The Rings of Power unites all the major stories of Middle-earth’s Second Age: the forging of the rings, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the epic tale of Númenor, and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men," said Showrunners J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay. "Until now, audiences have only seen on-screen the story of the One Ring - but before there was one, there were many... and we're excited to share the epic story of them all."

Just as so many elements of the show itself were hand-crafted, Prime Video chose to physically forge the title in a blacksmith foundry, pouring fiery molten metal into hand-carved wooden ravines shaped to the letterforms. The process was captured in slow motion for a live-action video, which features voice-over narration of lines from Tolkien's famous "Ring Verse," describing the intended recipients of the 20 Rings of Power. The bespoke title treatment appears crafted in a silvery metal, with lines of Elvish script inscribed along the crest of each letterform.

Lines from Tolkien's "Ring Verse" featured in the voice-over as part of Prime Video's announcement today:

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

  Anne on DVD and digital [read more]
  Remembering tragedy
  The extraordinary story of Anne Williams, a Liverpool housewife whose 15-year-old son was tragically killed at Hillsborough, can be seen in the gripping drama ANNE, starring Maxine Peake (Peterloo, Funny Cow), Bobby Scholfield (Anthony, How to Build a Girl) and Rob Jarvis (Showtrail) and available on DVD from 31st January and on Digital Download now.

Anne William's son Kevin was tragically killed by a terrace crush at the FA Cup semi-final between his beloved team Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in 1989. Anne stood defiantly alongside other parents and families who fought for justice for the 96 who lost their lives at the match. Determined to unearth the truth about Hillsborough, Anne refused to believe the official line on how the disaster unfolded, seeking medical opinion, tracking down witnesses whose statements had been altered or disregarded by the police, challenging senior officers, and leaving no stone unturned in her fight for truth and justice. Her determination to uncover the truth spanned twenty years, overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to win a verdict of unlawful killing for her son and the 95 others who died.
