First Trailer from Marvel's Avengers Game
 2019-06-11 02:55:13 ET by Claire Cooper



Marvel Entertainment has just released the trailer from their upcoming video game. Simply titled Marvel's Avengers, the game will let the players take control of many of the original Avengers team members.

Watch it below:


Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

The epic action-adventure game will combine cinematic storytelling with single-player and co-operative gameplay. Developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal, Nixxes Software, and Crystal Northwest, Marvel’s Avengers will release simultaneously on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC on May 15, 2020.

Special Evening with Vladimir Cosma In The Eldorado Theater
 2019-06-08 03:49:58 ET by Gruic



This Wednesday, the Eldorado theater in Dijon (France) had the privilege to present music composer Vladimir Cosma, for an event evening dedicated to his career. A talented violinist himself, long-time collaborator with filmmakers Yves Robert, Claude Zidi or Gérard Oury, Cosma has signed the soundtracks from many timeless classics, from The Party to The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe, Knock on Wood or The Dinner Game.



Organized by Philippe Gonin, Senior lecturer in musicology, the evening begins with a short concert. Indeed, four musicology students, Katie, Anne-Elisabeth, Elodie and Adèle, made their instruments speak in order to replay some cult pieces from Vladimir Cosma's career. The composer then returned to the room to the applause of the audience.
The latter was then lent to an exchange hosted by Séverine Abhervé, Doctor of Cinema. Tvore has detached for you the synthesis and analysis below.

1) Arranger for Michel Legrand
Upon his arrival in France, Vladimir Cosma began as an arranger in the service of the renowned professional and composer Michel Legrand, who lacked the time to do all the work that was entrusted to him. The young Vladimir Cosma will thus work as a good second for 5 years, accumulating a varied experience with a man he loved very much. A positive experience that he advises all young people entering the profession: learning alongside someone from the community brings knowledge that cannot be learned on the school bench.

2) Beginning of solo career
One day, Michel Legrand received a call from Yves Robert who offered him to work on his next film, but he refused because he was about to leave for several months to work in the United States. Desperate, Yves Robert asked him if his "little young man" would not be available, but Michel Legrand replied that no, he was going with him to the United States. Vladimir Cosma is saddened by this missed opportunity and insists on joining Michel Legrand, promising him that he will join him in the United States as soon as the project is finished "I would love to make this film". Finally, his mentor answers the phone, calls Yves Robert and says, "I'll give you a gift." Thus Vladimir Cosma obtained his first soundtrack signed for the film Very Happy Alexander.

3) Finding your way
Vladimir Cosma did have his style, but it had been put at the service of Michel Legrand and could thus be assimilated to him. In fact, how do you find your way? How can we ensure that the public would never say "he does Michel Legrand?” The young composer's idea was to propose musical themes revolving around a solo instrument. A strong instrument, which stands out from the crowd, producing a melody that remains in memory. He imported the pan flute from his native country to compose the main theme of the film The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe. But here it is, originally, he was asked for a toupee of the James Bond theme and he was then particularly out of the scope of the request. When the film was shown in camera to the bigwigs around the film, the atmosphere was gloomy, and scriptwriter Francis Veber felt that the problem came precisely from this pan flute. Shot down, Vladimir Cosma did not sleep at night. The next day, the director Yves Robert called him to discuss the famous theme and asked Vladimir Cosma what he thought of it. The composer didn't deny it "If you want me to make you a James Bond toupee, I will, but according to me it's with the pan flute that the film works". After reflection, Yves Robert took the side of his composer and left the tape unchanged. When it was released, the film was a huge success and its music marked the history of soundtracks. Obviously, this did not affect the agreement between Vladimir Cosma and Francis Veber either, since they would collaborate again on other films later.

4) Music in freewheel mode
For Vladimir Cosma, it is obvious that music can have a life beyond the film for which it was composed. Some films may be forgotten as their soundtracks survive. They then acquire a life of their own.

5) Giving depth
Vladimir Cosma has always refused to be seen as a humorous film composer. He hates the term "comedy music" and has never sought to create this kind of music. Whatever scene he had to accompany musically, even if it was a funny scene, the composer systematically sought to develop depth. No crazy, no burlesque, always with feelings.
Despite everything, prejudice is hard to overcome. Vladimir Cosma remembers being mediated as making "Prisunic music". Despised, never serious enough.
Fortunately, time transcends stereotypes and its work is now recognized worldwide. Played in concerts, his music has conquered new generations, confirming Vladimir Cosma's status as a master of the genre.



Our next news on music will be focused on Paul Misraki.

It's now official, actor Bradley Cooper has split with his longtime girlfriend Irina Shayk, four years into the relationship.

In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Lady Gaga had already confronted the rumor by saying "Yeah, people saw love, and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see. (...) I’m an artist. I guess we did a good job. Fooled ya!"

The Complexity of Ending a Series
 2019-06-01 05:09:53 ET by Jack Anderson



Game of Thrones has ended. And the least we can say is that the last two episodes of the series were highly controversial. While Game of Thrones was and still is the most popular TV series ever, even with a global focus, ending a series is one of the most difficult exercise in storytelling. Let us analyze the reasons why.

Warning, this article contains major spoilers on multiple series, such as Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, The X-Files and Prison Break. You've been warned.

SUPREME ANTICIPATION
First, series finales are so highly anticipated that you could argue that living up to the expectations of the fans is close to impossible. This is not only the case with series finale, but in the movie genre, many sequels are looked for like the Messiah. Remember Avengers: Endgame, last month?
While this is all logical, this is also unfair, as many series have close to a hundred episodes, if not more. And all the series should be judged on just one episode? If that's not an impossible task, then what is?
And while this may sound unfair, this tells a major truth. The end has, obviously, an utmost place in the story, if not the most important place. That's why many authors recommend to start a story with a great beginning and close it with an equally great ending. What happens in the middle will never be as important. This is true in everything, and perhaps in life as well.
Coming back to Game of Thrones, we all remember the excruciatingly boring scenes of Arya, "a girl has no name", in her infamous Many-Faced God cult, during season 5. While this may have been uninteresting to some audience, this will never be as important as the final scenes from the series.

KILLING OF CHARACTERS
Killing major characters is an obvious choice for series finales. REVEAL THE SPOILER!
During a series life, many admirers of the show become very close to some characters. As an example, some fans of Game of Thrones would love Jon Snow while others would become fans of Daenerys Targaryen, as an example.
Killing major characters will always upset some fans, that have a direct relationship with those.
What this says is that characters are not just on paper or on screen. One can grow attached to fictional characters, the same way you'd grow fond of someone in real life. But what's real life anyway? Can we live in the world of books and movies? Can we immerse ourselves entirely and get emotionally invested in a TV series?
How many people find solace by watching their favorite series, over and over again? This is the power of storytelling. The magic power of storytelling...

TWIST
Many endings contain a twist. And twist is always a major risk. Imagine this. You tell a story for a hundred hours, only to completely change it at the very last minute. This is what happened with Game of Thrones, with Daenerys Targaryen suddenly REVEAL THE SPOILER! for so long.
Looking back, while this made perfect sense, imagine being a complete fan of Daenerys and suddenly facing this final twist at the last hour? How would you feel?

WRAPPING UP
In many series finales, the showrunners try to close off the show with a theme or morale that would wrap up the entire series. The problem is that this usually becomes a gimmick, fabricated at the last minute. Back in 2002, The X-Files ended with the main character being able to see dead people, in a morale saying that the dead still talk to us. This clearly did not fit within the almost decade-long series and felt out of place.
This month, in Game of Thrones, there were two themes. The first was about democracy and how societies are doomed to evolve, as long as we decide to fight for them. The second was that stories are extremely powerful, hence putting on the (not Iron) Throne Bran Stark, also known as the Three-Eyed Raven, the omniscient and emotionless character.

George R. R. Martin On His Next Book
 2019-05-30 05:06:21 ET by Jack Anderson



Game of Thrones ended with quite the controversial finale. Some enraged fans couldn't believe what some of their beloved characters had become. Now that a few days have passed, some admirers of the Westeros world are placing their hopes and dreams into the hands of author George R. R. Martin, which has only released five out of the planned seven books about the Seven REVEAL THE SPOILER! Kingdoms main series – not counting prequels and other works.

On his (not a) blog, Martin revealed some details on his current work, after being offered by Air New Zealand to come to New Zealand for free in order to complete his book:



As for finishing my book… I fear that New Zealand would distract me entirely too much. Best leave me here in Westeros for the nonce. But I tell you this — if I don’t have THE WINDS OF WINTER in hand when I arrive in New Zealand for worldcon, you have here my formal written permission to imprison me in a small cabin on White Island, overlooking that lake of sulfuric acid, until I’m done. Just so long as the acrid fumes do not screw up my old DOS word processor, I’ll be fine.

Worldcon will take place in the Summer of 2020, which could mean that the release of The Winds Of Winter could be imminent.

Martin also reflected on the time that has passed so quickly since the inception of the Game of Thrones series:
The last night, the last show. After eight epic seasons, HBO’s GAME OF THRONES series has come to an end.

It is hard to believe it is over, if truth be told. The years have gone past in the blink of an eye. Can it really have been more than a decade since my manager Vince Gerardis set up a meeting at the Palm in LA, and I sat down for the first time with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for a lunch that lasted well past dinner? I asked them if they knew who Jon Snow’s mother was. Fortunately, they did.

That was how it started. It ended last night.

I had no clue, that afternoon at the Palm, that I was about to embark on a journey that would change my life. I had optioned books and stories for television and film before. Some had even been made. There was no way to know that this one was going to be different, that this pilot would not only be shot, but would go on to become the most successful show in the history of HBO, win a record number of Emmy Awards, become the most popular (and most pirated) show in the world, and transform a group of talented but largely unknown actors into major celebrities and stars. Even less did I imagine that I would somehow become a celebrity as well… and if truth be told, I’m still not sure how that happened.

It has been a wild ride, to say the least. (...) I could go on and on… and have, as I’ve been writing this post in my head… but there’s really too much to say. Parting is such sweet sorrow, the Bard wrote. In the weeks and months to come, I may post about some of my favorite moments from the making of this show… now and again, when I am feeling nostalgic… but just now, there are so many memories, and no time to do them all justice.


He then went on about the future of the cast and crew, as well as the future of the Game of Thrones franchise on television:

Let me say this much — last night was an ending, but it was also a beginning. Nobody is retiring any time soon. David and Dan are going on to STAR WARS and other projects beyond that. Amazon scooped up Bryan Cogman, and put him to work on developing shows of his own, as well as helping out on their big Tolkien project. Our brilliant cast has scattered to the four winds, but you’ll be seeing a lot of them in the years to come, in all manner of television shows and movies. Our directors are keeping busy as well. I suspect that you have not seen the last of Westeros on your television sets either, but I guess that all depends on how some of these successor shows turn out.

Finally, he offered some words on his own future and his work on completing the Song of Ice and Fire saga:

And me? I’m still here, and I’m still busy. As a producer, I’ve got five shows in development at HBO (some having nothing whatsoever to do with the world of Westeros), two at Hulu, one on the History Channel. I’m involved with a number of feature projects, some based upon my own stories and books, some on material created by others. There are these short films I am hoping to make, adaptations of classic stories by one of the most brilliant, quirky, and original writers our genre has ever produced. I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan. And then there’s Meow Wolf…

And I’m writing. Winter is coming, I told you, long ago… and so it is. THE WINDS OF WINTER is very late, I know, I know, but it will be done. I won’t say when, I’ve tried that before, only to burn you all and jinx myself… but I will finish it, and then will come A DREAM OF SPRING.

How will it all end? I hear people asking. The same ending as the show? Different?

Well… yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes. And no. And yes.

I am working in a very different medium than David and Dan, never forget. They had six hours for this final season. I expect these last two books of mine will fill 3000 manuscript pages between them before I’m done… and if more pages and chapters and scenes are needed, I’ll add them. And of course the butterfly effect will be at work as well; those of you who follow this Not A Blog will know that I’ve been talking about that since season one. There are characters who never made it onto the screen at all, and others who died in the show but still live in the books… so if nothing else, the readers will learn what happened to Jeyne Poole, Lady Stoneheart, Penny and her pig, Skahaz Shavepate, Arianne Martell, Darkstar, Victarion Greyjoy, Ser Garlan the Gallant, Aegon VI, and a myriad of other characters both great and small that viewers of the show never had the chance to meet. And yes, there will be unicorns… of a sort…

Book or show, which will be the “real” ending? It’s a silly question. How many children did Scarlett O’Hara have?

How about this? I’ll write it. You read it. Then everyone can make up their own mind, and argue about it on the internet.

And did you wonder how one of the most successful writers on the planet write his books? Are you sitting? Then sit. Martin explained that he is writing his books using an application released in the late 70's, named WordStar 4.0.

I actually like it, it does everything I want a word processing program to do and it doesn't do anything else. I don't want any help. I hate some of these modern systems where you type a lower case letter and it becomes a capital letter. I don't want a capital. If I wanted a capital, I would have typed a capital. I know how to work the shift key.

One thing is certain, his new book will never ever be stolen by hackers and released on the Internet beforehand. Sometimes, old is better.
