Roar is an American fantasy action adventure television series that originally aired on the Fox network from July 14, 1997 until September 1, 1997. The series was created by Shaun Cassidy and Ron Koslow and was set in the year 400 AD, following a young Irish man, Conor ( Heath Ledger), as he sets out to rid his land of the invading Romans, but in order to accomplish this, he must to unite the Celtic clans. It also starred Vera Farmiga, Lisa Zane, John Saint Ryan, and Sebastian Roché. Roar was cancelled after 8 episodes due to low ratings, and the final 5 episodes were not broadcast by the network until 2000.
Roar is a 1981 American adventure film written and directed by Noel Marshall, produced by and starring Marshall and his wife Tippi Hedren, and co-starring Hedren's real-life daughter Melanie Griffith and Marshall's real-life sons John and Jerry. The film follows a family who are attacked by a range of ravening jungle animals at the secluded home of their keeper.
Roar became notorious for its troubled 11-year production, which resulted in 70 members of its cast and crew being injured by the many predatory animals used in the film, including its main stars sustaining life-threatening injuries ranging from bone fractures to scalpings and gangrene. Much of the footage capturing the injuries was included in the final cut of the film, resulting in real blood on screen. It has been considered the most dangerous film shoot in history.
The film was released theatrically in Europe in 1981, but was a financial failure. It was released theatrically in the United States for the first time on April 17, 2015. Hedren co-wrote the 1985 book Cats of Shambala about her experience of filming Roar.
Roar (trademarked as ROAR) is the name of two wooden roller coasters operated by Six Flags. The original coaster was built in 1998 at Six Flags America in Mitchellville, Maryland, while the other was built in 1999 at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, California. Both rides were designed and built by Great Coasters International (GCI). Discovery Kingdom announced the retirement of Roar, which closed on August 16, 2015, only later to reveal that it was being renovated and transformed into The Joker with I-Box track technology by Rocky Mountain Construction.
A roar is a deep, bellowing outburst of sound forced through an open mouth. Only the four species of " big cats" ( tigers, lions, jaguars & leopards) make the sound commonly referred to as a roar. Their ability to roar comes from a specially adapted larynx and an elongated hyoid, a small bone in the throat that is not completely rigid in the adults. Both genders of the "big cats" will roar for various reasons, including territorial proclamation, communication with other members, and anger. Additionally, the roar of a lion is used in the process of finding and competing for a mate.
The overall roar pattern is composed of three segments - a beginning segment sounding like moaning, a middle segment with low frequency loud tones and a final segment which sounds much like grunting. The lion's roar is familiar to many through Leo the Lion, the iconic logo seen during the opening sequence of MGM films. The portion of Leo's roar that is actually heard is only the middle segment of a roar, omitting the first and last segments.
"Roar" is a song by American singer Katy Perry for her fourth studio album, Prism (2013). It was released as the lead single from the record on August 10, 2013. The song was written by Perry, Bonnie McKee, Dr. Luke, Max Martin, and Cirkut, and produced by the latter three. It is a power pop song, containing elements of glam rock and arena rock, with lyrics centering on standing up for oneself and self-empowerment.
"Roar" received generally mixed reviews from music critics; many appreciated its overall production, while others felt that its lyrical content contained "clichés". The song was a commercial success, becoming Perry's eighth non-consecutive number one song on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and also topping charts in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Additionally, it also reached the top five in most international charts, including France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Switzerland.
To promote the song, Perry performed under the Brooklyn Bridge at the closing ceremony of the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, on The X Factor Australia, at the Sydney Opera House in late October 2013, and on the German TV show Schlag den Raab. Grady Hall and Mark Kudsi directed the song's music video, which features Perry trying to adapt to the jungle where she survived a plane crash, and taming a tiger. It garnered generally mixed reviews from music critics. "Roar" was nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. The song topped the charts in 14 countries and sold 9.9 million units (combined sales and track-equivalent streams) globally according to the IFPI.
