Abstract.

 
The subject of this research is the use of archetypical constructs within the framework of cinematic universe “The Game of Thrones”. The object is the phenomenon of the modern audiovisual arts. The key aspect of the topic is the analysis of application of the phenomenon of “Scandinavian myth” in modern film industry. This phenomenon is interpreted as a factor of transformation of mass consciousness that illustrating a set of “social myths” of globalization era, which is traced in a broad range of movies. The presented features are generalized on the example of created from the novels by G. Martin cinematic universe “A Song of Ice and Fire”, which in is named “The Game of Thrones” film’s release and is one of the brightest examples of “new mythology” in mass consciousness. The author makes the following conclusions: one of the development trends of film industry is the active use of cliché complex, which forms a special cultural reality interpreted as a Scandinavian myth, based on the fatalistic providence; using the phenomenon of time and space manipulation, the hi-tech types of art form the new models of “intellectual field”, which disrupt the outdated information and semantic structures of cultural space. This leads to implementation of the principle of balanced unity, referred to the collective unconscious. Thus, these models develop the concepts of mythology of art, its interrelation with society, which is expressed in the effect of satisfaction of the demands of gross audience.
 

Keywords: fatalism, fantasy, middle Ages, archetypal constructions, providentialism, Scandinavian myth, cultural landscape, instrumentalization, Game of thrones, Westeros
