Μια τηλεοπτική σειρά δεν μπορεί να θεωρεί ως δεδομένο ότι το κοινό της θα έχει οπωσδήποτε διαβάσει ή/και παίξει το παιχνίδι. Γι'αυτό και ο πρώτος κύκλος είναι σαν να στρώνει το χαλί για αυτό που θα επακολουθήσει. Εκτιμώ ότι ο δεύτερος θα είναι πολύ καλύτερος και ίσως και πλουσιότερος ως παραγωγή.

Στην προκειμένη, ευτυχής όποιος ΔΕΝ έχει διαβάσει τα βιβλία και είδε αυτό το πράμα. Δεν αντέχω άλλο, θα το φωνάξω: αυτό δεν είναι witcher! Και δεν είναι θέμα geek γκρίνιας "μα, έχουν κάνει τόσες αλλαγές, η Γιέννεφερ δεν φοράει ασπρόμαυρα, φοράει γκριζογάλαζα", ξέρω 'γω. Όχι: δεν είναι αυτό που προσποιείται ότι είναι.

 

Quote

Ο Henry Cavill ανταποκρίνεται στις απαιτήσεις του ρόλου· είναι στιβαρός αλλά διαθέτει και κίνηση.

Κρέας. Δεν νιώθει να μιλήσει, δεν νιώθει να κινηθεί, και τέλος πάντων, γιατί χαμογελάει συνέχεια; Έχω βαρεθεί να τον βλέπω να χαμογελάει. Ο Γκέραλτ ήταν σοβαρός (μουτρωμένος, αφού τον δούλευαν οι φίλοι του). Και, επίσης, ΧΟΝΤΡΟΣ (θεόχοντρος) για witcher. Θα τον έτρωγε το πρώτο τόσο δα μπασμένο τερατάκι.

Συγγνώμη για τα κεφαλαία, (φωνές), δεν ήταν για 'σένα. -_-

Χαχαχα, εκφράσου ελεύθερα :D

Δεδομένου ότι είμαι και εγώ ένας από αυτούς που ούτε έχουν διαβάσει το βιβλίο, ούτε έχουν παίξει το παιχνίδι, το κρίνω ως ένα αυτοτελές τηλεοπτικό προϊόν. Ως τέτοιο λοιπόν, δεν μπορώ να πω ότι κάτι με δυσαρέστησε καθώς το παρακολουθούσα. Ίσως το μόνο που θα είχα να παρατηρήσω να είναι κάποια πισωγυρίσματα στο χρόνο που λιγάκι με μπέρδεψαν, αλλά στο τέλος καταλαβαίνεις τι γίνεται, οπότε δεν είναι και πολύ σοβαρό. Όταν αναφέρθηκα στην κίνηση του Cavill είχα κατά νου τις εντυπωσιακές χορογραφίες ξιφομαχίας, οι οποίες μου άρεσαν και φαινόταν δουλεμένες και όχι 'πρόχειρες'.

Για το κατά πόσον αποδίδει τηλεοπτικά το λογοτεχνικό έργο, δεν μπορώ να έχω ακόμα άποψη. Έχω όμως στα υπόψη να αγοράσω τα τρία βιβλία που έχουν μέχρι στιγμής μεταφραστεί στα ελληνικά. Θα ξεκινούσα να τα πάρω στο αγγλικό πρωτότυπο, όμως η καλή μου εκδήλωσε την επιθυμία να τα διαβάσει και εκείνη και αφού προτιμά το ελληνικό κείμενο θα επιλέξω τελικώς την ελληνική έκδοση για να μην τα αγοράσουμε δυο φορές. Από ότι έχω διαβάσει πάντως, η ελληνική μετάφραση είναι αρκετά αξιοπρεπής. Όταν με το καλό τα διαβάσω θα έχω μια σαφώς πιο ολοκληρωμένη άποψη.

Είμαι αισιόδοξος ότι ο δεύτερος κύκλος θα είναι πιο πλούσιος σε σκηνικά και πιο μεστός σε ερμηνείες. Οψόμεθα...

Jodie Turner-Smith exits leading role in Netflix’s The Witcher prequel

Jodie Turner-Smith Exits Leading Role in Netflix’s The Witcher Prequel

According to Deadline, Queen & Slim actress Jodie Turner-Smith has officially exited her leading role in Netflix’s upcoming prequel limited series The Witcher: Blood Origin. Her withdrawal from the project was due to scheduling conflicts caused by a slight change in the production schedule. Turner-Smith was originally set for the role of Éile, who is being described as an elite warrior blessed with the voice of a goddess.

“Due to a change in the production schedule for ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ limited series, unfortunately Jodie Turner-Smith will no longer be able to continue on in the role of Éile,” a Netflix representative said in a statement.

Set in an elven world 1,200 years before events of the main series, The Witcher: Blood Origin tells the story lost to time – the creation of the first prototype Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one.

The six-part limited series will be led by Éile, who has left her clan and position as Queen’s guardian to follow her heart as a nomadic musician. A grand reckoning on the continent forces her to return to the way of the blade in her quest for vengeance and redemption.

It will also star Vikings alum Laurence O’Fuarain who has been cast for the role of Fjall, a character who comes from a clan of warriors sworn to protect a King. He carries a deep scar within caused by the death of a loved one who fell in battle trying to save him. A scar that won’t let him settle, or make peace with himself or the world around him. In his quest for redemption, Fjall will find himself fighting beside the most unlikely of allies as he carves a path of vengeance across a continent in turmoil.

The Witcher: Blood Origin will be executive produced by Declan de Barra, who also serves as the showrunner. The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich will also executive produce along with Hivemind’s Jason Brown and Sean Daniel, and Platige Films’ Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko. Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski will serve as a creative consultant on the series.

The Witcher, Cobra Kai & You: Netflix CEO Confirms Late 2021 Return

The Witcher, Cobra Kai & You: Netflix CEO Confirms Late 2021 Return

During Netflix’s recent investor video for its first-quarter financial results, the streamer’s Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has confirmed that three of their biggest series along two of their high-profile movies are all set to return in the fourth quarter of this year. This includes the highly-anticipated new seasons of the Henry Cavill-led fantasy drama The Witcher, the hit Karate Kid spinoff Cobra Kai, and the psychological thriller You. Both productions of The Witcher Season 2 and You Season 3 were affected by the ongoing pandemic last year. That’s why their original release dates were ultimately delayed.

Netflix’s upcoming action films, such as Red Notice starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, and Chris Hemsworth’s Escape From Spiderhead are also expected to make their debuts later this year. Red Notice was originally set for a 2020 release but was delayed to the production delays caused by the pandemic.

“What happened in the first part of this year was that a lot of the projects that we’d hoped to come out earlier did get pushed because of the post-production delays and Covid delays,” Sarandos revealed (via Deadline). “And we think we’ll get back to a much steadier state in the back half of the year, certainly in Q4 where we have the returning seasons of some of our most popular shows like The Witcher and You and Cobra Kai as well as some big tentpole movies that came to market a little slower than we’d hoped like Red Notice and Escape From Spiderhead.”

Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

Earlier this month, production on the long-awaited second season of The Witcher was finally completed after 158 days of filming. The production previously endured a number of delays, including some members of the crew testing positive for COVID-19 and Henry Cavill sustaining an on-set minor leg injury.

In Cobra KaiRalph Macchio and William Zabka revisit their star-making roles from the iconic film franchise, The Karate Kid. The epic adversaries return to the dojo, thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. A down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi.

Due to the first two seasons’ successful Netflix debut last year, the martial arts dramedy series was able to secure an early season renewal just before the third season was released in January. Production on the upcoming fourth season began last March.

Red Notice is described as a globe-trotting, action-comedy heist thriller designed as a three-hander between Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds. In the film, Johnson plays an Interpol agent tasked with capturing the most wanted art thief in the world. “Red Notice” refers to the highest and most serious of Interpol notices (there are eight) and concerns the arrest of wanted criminals. Meanwhile, Gal Gadot is to portray the role of the world’s greatest art thief, with Ryan Reynolds playing the world’s greatest con-man.
