The Queen’s Gambit Full Trailer Arrives for Anya Taylor-Joy’s Netflix Series

Published

on

The Queen’s Gambit, a television miniseries based on Walter Tevis’s 1983 novel of the same name, progresses toward an October arrival on Netflix, auspiciously touting a headliner in rising star Anya Taylor-Joy.

Creators Scott Frank (Godless) and Allan Scott (The Witches) wrote the serial television adaptation, which Frank directed for its 7-episode frame. The story of The Queen’s Gambit centers on orphaned young American woman Beth Harmon (Taylor-Joy), who endured a rough and cynical upbringing by embracing the game of chess, becoming a prodigious player who starts to dominate the competition circuit, and eventually reaches international levels. However, her story is an odyssey of self-destruction by way of drugs, alcohol and childhood-inflicted anxieties, all of which threaten her chances to become the best player in the world.

With that set, check out the full trailer for Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit just below.

The industry stock of headliner Anya Taylor-Joy continues to experience an upward trajectory ever since a breakout starring role in director Robert Eggers’s 2015 horror film, The Witch, subsequently rising further with TV runs on BBC’s Atlantis and Netflix/BBC One’s Peaky Blinders, and cemented with a co-starring role opposite James McAvoy in director M. Knight Shyamalan’s thriller, Split, which she would reprise in 2019’s Glass. Her upcoming starring role in The Queen’s Gambit will cap off a year that’s already seen her appear in three films, Emma, Here Are the Young Men and years-delayed Marvel movie The New Mutants. However, 2021 will see her back on the big screen with director Edgar Wright’s April-scheduled thriller, Last Night in Soho. In another notable tidbit, she’s also favored to star in director George Miller’s developing Mad Max: Fury Road prequel, Furiosa, as a younger version of Charlize Theron’s instant-classic post-apocalyptic badass.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
