Wheel Of Time Featurette Takes Us Behind The Scenes Of Amazon's Big Fantasy Series

Amazon Prime Video's "The Wheel of Time" adaptation is set to premiere on November 19, and while the streaming platform is keeping the show well under wraps, they are releasing some tidbits about the first season.

The latest is a featurette that the UK arm of Amazon Prime Video shared via their Twitter account. In this clip, we not only get snippets of behind-the-scenes moments on the show, but we also get interviews with Rosamund Pike, who plays the powerful Aes Sedai Moiraine, as well as showrunner Rafe Judkins.

Check it out below:

It's a short video, yes, but it's sure to make fans of the Robert Jordan books the show is based on excited, and newcomers to "The Wheel of Time" world eager to see more of the series' first season.

A Show That's 'Emotional And Intangible'

Judkins says in the clip that part of what makes "The Wheel of Time" so special is "something emotional and intangible." Existing "WoT" fans will no likely agree, and the video works to convey that intangible essence to a larger audience.

The video, for example, gives us a look behind the camera to see how the show created some of the magical effects, particularly around Moiraine's powers. It also shows how they filmed riders on horseback, and gives us glimpses of different places in the show. We see shots of the Two Rivers, for example, the home of the young folks who Moiraine takes under her protection. And it also shows a quick shot of what looks like the cursed city of Shadar Logoth along with a great stone archway that looks like something of great import.

At less than 40 seconds long, however, the featurette can only show us so much. We'll have to wait until November 19 to see "The Wheel of Time" in all its epic fantasy glory.

In addition to Pike, "The Wheel of Time" stars Madeleine Madden as Egwene Al'Vere, Marcus Rutherford as Perrin Aybara, Barney Harris as Mat Cauthon (though Dónal Finn will play him in Season 2), Zoë Robins as Nynaeve, and Josha Stradowski as Rand Al'Thor.

The show follows Moraine and the actors above as they flee from dark forces who want one of them — the prophesied Dragon (AKA, Chosen One) — for its own aims. Season 2 of the show is also already in production, though no news yet on when it will drop on Amazon.

Eyes Wide Shut Is Getting A Live Script Reading, And Full Costumes Are Encouraged

If you're in the Los Angeles area and are looking for something fun to do the Wednesday before Halloween, we might have the perfect sexy, spooky event for you. IFC Films and Film Independent are presenting a live reading of Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut" with "The Beta Test" directors Jim Cummings and PJ McCabe. The best part? The directors request that the audience all dress in masks and capes, and full costumes are encouraged.

A Spooky Story About A Secret Sex Cult

On Wednesday, October 27, 2021, Jim Cummings and PJ McCabe will direct a live reading of "Eyes Wide Shut," Kubrick's salacious story about a couple who get involved in a sex cult while trying to spice up their marriage. In the film, the pair were played by then real-life spouses Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. It's an indulgent, moody, suspenseful film that fits well with the Halloween season. 

Tickets are already on sale for the reading, which will take place at the DGA Theater on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with a 7:30 start time. Tickets are $20 for Film Independent Members with a limit of two tickets per membership, and $35 for the general public. Those attending must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter and wear a mask or face covering at all times.

A Bit About The Beta Test

The event is partially a way to ramp up hype for "The Beta Test," Cummings and McCabe's new movie coming from IFC Films. The film is a dark satirical thriller about Hollywood power dynamics and our ever-decreasing privacy. "The Beta Test" follows Jordan (Cummings), a Hollywood agent, as he accepts a mysterious invitation for a blindfolded one-night stand despite the fact that he's engaged to be married. When it turns out his secret might be revealed, he starts spiraling into increasingly horrible attempts to hide his infidelity. McCabe also stars in the film, as Jordan's good friend who also just so happens to be named PJ. 

"Eyes Wide Shut" is similarly a story about infidelity, anonymous sex, and secrets. While "The Beta Test" is tonally pretty different from Kubrick's languid slow burn, with significantly more humor, there's still enough shared DNA between the two to ensure that this is sure to be a good time. 

Tickets for the "Eyes Wide Shut" reading are on sale now on the Film Independent website. 

"The Beta Test" will hit theaters on November 5, 2021.
