With an estimated $200 million budget, this expensive action film starring Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans has the classic ingredients to be a real crowd-pleaser.

House of Dragons.
Now TV/Sky Atlantic. Aug 21st.

The Rings of Power.
Amazon Prime. Sep 2nd.
Set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the new eight-part series will bring Tolkien’s fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history to our screens for the very first time.
The series will tackle Sauron’s ascension to power as well as the forging of the Rings of Power, which the Dark Lord gifted to humans, elves and dwarves and secretly controlled with his master ring (aka the One Ring to Rule Them All).
Amazon Prime. Late 2022.
The Rig whisks us away to an oil rig stationed off the Scottish coast in the dangerous waters of the North Sea.

The six-part thriller stars Iain Glen, Martin Compston, Emily Hampshire, Owen Teale and Mark Bonnar.
