Made in commemoration and celebration of the Jubilee of King George V, this is the story of the first twenty-five years of his reign, told through the many travels of a penny that was minted in the year of his accession: 1910. Through a series of individual stories, Royal Cavalcade covers a period of striking change in every area of life – from the suffragette movement to the trenches of World War One, the effects of the Depression to single events such as the first ever Royal Command Performance, featuring Anna Pavlova and George Robey. Combining newsreel footage and dramatised re-enactments and boasting some of the era's most popular stage and screen stars, this little-seen documentary feature is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in it as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Zu Zeiten des Wilden Westen befindet sich die kleine Stadt Rose Creek unter der Kontrolle von Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard). Um sich vor dem Geschäftsmann und seiner Übermacht zu wehren, begeben sie sich auf die Suche nach Hilfe. In dem gerissenen Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington) finden sie schon bald einen wichtigen Verbündeten. Der Outlaw begibt sich auf die Suche nach weiteren Hütern der Gerechtigkeit und heuert sechs weitere Kopfgeldjäger an: Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) und Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). Während sich die ungeübte Stadt auf den Showdown mit den Gangstern vorbereiten, merken die glorreichen Sieben schnell, dass der Kampf mehr wert als alles Gold der Welt ist.Bereits 1954 inszenierte der japanische Meisterregisseur Akira Kurosawa seinen Epos „Die sieben Samurai“. Nicht nur war der Film seinerzeit als die teuerste Produktion des Landes, sondern galt schon bald als Meilenstein der Filmgeschichte. Dass die Geschichte nicht nur mit Samurai-Kriegern funktioniert, bewies 1960 John Sturges in seiner Western-Adaption „Die glorreichen Sieben“, in der welcher die sieben Rächer nun als Outlaws durch den Wilden Westen ritten. Yul Brynner nahm hier die Rolle als Kopf der Revolverhelden ein. Nun inszeniert Antoine Fuqua („Training Day“, „The Equalizer“) das Remake des klassischen Westerns. Dabei besetzte er abermals Oscar-Preisträger Denzel Washington in einer Hauptrolle als den Anführer der glorreichen Sieben. Weitere Hollywood-Größen sind mit Chris Pratt („Guardians of the Galaxy“), Ethan Hawke („Boyhood“) und Peter Sarsgaard („Jarhead“), Haley Bennett („Hardcore“) mit an Bord.Originaltitle: The Magnificent Seven, 2016Blu-ray & UHD Special Features:Directing the Seven featuretteRogue Bogue featuretteThe Seven featuretteMagnificent Music featuretteExclusive to Blu-ray & UHD – Vengeance Mode with Antoine Fuqua and The Seven – “The Seven” and director Antoine Fuqua break down key scenes and discuss making this extraordinary film.Exclusive to Blu-ray & UHD – Deleted ScenesExclusive to Blu-ray & UHD – Gunslingers featuretteExclusive to Blu-ray & UHD – The Taking of Rose Creek featuretteBONUS DISC (included with Blu-ray, UHD and Day Zero Limited Edition SKUs)SEVEN TALES OF MAKING THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN – BONUS DISCA unique perspective on the making of this epic film, seven tales that will take you inside the world of the movie.

The Blind Assassin opens with these simple, resonant words: "Ten days after the war ended, my sister Laura drove a car off a bridge." They are spoken by Iris, whose terse account of her sister's death in 1945 is followed by an inquest report proclaiming the death accidental. But just as the reader expects to settle into Laura's story, Atwood introduces a novel-within-a-novel. Entitled The Blind Assassin," it is a science fiction story told by two unnamed lovers who meet in dingy backstreet rooms. When we return to Iris, it is through a 1947 newspaper article announcing the discovery of a sailboat carrying the dead body of her husband, a distinguished industrialist. Brilliantly weaving together such seemingly disparate elements, Atwood creates a world of astonishing vision and unforgettable impact.From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE In The Blind Assassin, Margaret Atwood weaves together strands of gothic suspense, romance, and science fiction into one utterly spellbinding narrative.

These richly layered stories-within-stories gradually illuminate the secrets that have long haunted the Chase family, coming together in a brilliant and astonishing final twist.

A Tale of Seven Elements , Hörbuch, Digital, 1,...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1913, English physicist Henry Moseley established an elegant method for "counting" the elements based on atomic number, ranging them from hydrogen (#1) to uranium (#92). It soon became clear, however, that seven elements were mysteriously missing from the line up - seven elements unknown to science. In his well researched and engagingly narrative, Eric Scerri presents the intriguing stories of these seven elements - protactinium, hafnium, rhenium, technetium, francium, astatine and promethium. The book follows the historical order of discovery, roughly spanning the two world wars, beginning with the isolation of protactinium in 1917 and ending with that of promethium in 1945. For each element, Scerri traces the research that preceded the discovery, the pivotal experiments, the personalities of the chemists involved, the chemical nature of the new element, and its applications in science and technology. We learn for instance that alloys of hafnium - whose name derives from the Latin name for Copenhagen (hafnia) - have some of the highest boiling points on record and are used for the nozzles in rocket thrusters such as the Apollo Lunar Modules. Scerri also tells the personal tales of researchers overcoming great obstacles. We see how Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn - the pair who later proposed the theory of atomic fission - were struggling to isolate element 91 when World War I intervened, Hahn was drafted into the German army's poison gas unit, and Meitner was forced to press on alone against daunting odds. The book concludes by examining how and where the 25 new elements have taken their places in the periodic table in the last half century. A Tale of Seven Elements paints a fascinating picture of chemical research - the wrong turns, missed opportunities, bitterly disputed claims, serendipitous findings, accusations of dishonesty - all leading finally to the thrill of discovery. 1.

Waking Up from War: A Better Way Home for Veter...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Voices and stories of veterans and their families and care providers reveal what is necessary for post-war healing. This book argues that the elements that contribute to healing war trauma - including safety, connection, community, dialogue, mutual respect, diversity, and compassion - can help build a stronger nation. But this message comes with a warning and a challenge not just for caregivers, veterans service organizations, governmental departments, Congress, and the White House, but for all Americans. War creates incalculable suffering - not only among those on the front lines, but also among those left behind. For every soldier killed or injured on the battlefield, countless others are affected - particularly relatives and friends - often in isolation and silence. As a nation, the US must do everything it can to repair the injuries caused by war, whether physical, emotional, or moral, both for those who served in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, and for the country itself. Only after the nation provides the top-quality care our veterans have earned will we be able to begin to end our reliance on war and truly build a durable peace. 1. Language: English.
