‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’ Could Be 2022’s First Oscar Best Picture Contender

Clayton Davis The genie is out of the bottle for the dynamic director George Miller and his newest venture “Three Thousand Years of Longing,” starring Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba. You’ll hear the awards comparisons that call it Miller’s version of “The Shape of Water” (2017), Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winner for best picture, but it’s closer to Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” (2012) but with an accessible and soulful core. It’s a love story to the storytellers, and a love letter to mankind.

With its imperfect perfection, the first contender for Oscar’s most coveted prize has arrived.Two of Miller’s films have received nominations: “Babe” (1995) and “Mad Max: Fury Road” (2015). This is hands-down his most narrative-rich achievement, something that could bring him three Oscar noms as a producer, director and co-writer. Marking the first MGM title to debut at the film festival following the studio’s merger with Amazon Studios, it’s the beginning of a new era for potential awards contenders, although it’s yet to be seen how the two entities will co-exist and develop a voice that feels signatory.The movie is adapted by Miller and Augusta Goran from the short story “The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye” by A.

S. Byatt. The film tells the story of Alithea, a scholar, who is content with her life but encounters a djinn who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.

ITV in major schedule shake-up as Tipping Point and The Chase move to new slots
Tipping Point and The Chase fans have been baffled over the programmes’ scheduled times due to a massive schedule reshuffle.ITV’s Tipping Point, presented by Ben Shephard, is shown on the channel at 4pm on weekday afternoons.Due to the change in schedule, which is assumed to be down to the Bank Holiday weekend which runs from Saturday 30 April to Monday 2 May, Tipping Point will be shown at 5pm instead.The game show will air after Tenable, presented by actor Warwick Davis, where five contestants compete to complete a list of top ten answers around general knowledge subjects.Prior to the game show omnibus, ITV will show Universal’s Despicable Me 2 from 2pm.After Tipping Point concludes at 6pm, the ITV Evening News, Regional News and Weather Forecast will broadcast until 6:30pm.Then Bradley Walsh will take over with The Chase, which will run for an hour until Emmerdale at 7:30pm, closely followed by Coronation Street half an hour later at 8pm.After Monday 2 May, the broadcaster will return to its usually scheduled programming.A similar time slot shake-up was made earlier this year during Easter weekend which saw both game shows moved from their usual space in the schedule.Lingo was also moved, which has since been replaced by Tenable, but ITV have since urged viewers that filming for the show’s third series is currently underway.Tipping Point, which has been going since 2012, has recently celebrated its 10th birthday and producers decided to try out something new in celebration.Instead of the usual four contestants attempting to try their hand at Ben’s quick fire general knowledge questions, only three will battle it out against the host in hopes of trying their luck against the machine.Tipping Point’s spin off show,
