Go Inside The Game Of Thrones Season 4 Premiere Episode [VIDEO]

I, for one, am glad the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones has finally come and gone. Now I can stop wondering what will happen during the season and actually watch it unfold! Here’s the first “Inside the Episode” of Season 4 with the producers discussing some of the major happenings of “Two Swords.” Bonus Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey talking about the “Golden Hand” after the cut!

Could Game of Thrones’ Jaime Lannister Play One of the Gods of Egypt?

Insert joke about Nikolaj Coster-Waldau already being a god here. The Game of Thrones actor is in negotiations to star in Summit Entertainment’s Gods of Egypt. But which one would he play?

Gwendoline Christie Discusses Gender Roles & Fighting For Game of Thrones’ Brienne

I could write a whole article on how amazingly awesome Brienne of Tarth is just from my own perspective but in this case I’ll leave it up to the actress who plays her on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Gwendoline Christie did an interview with TV Guide recently where she said some interesting things about gender roles in Westeros.

Benedict Cumberbatch to Depress Audience Members In Alan Turing Biopic?

Fellow history nerds, rejoice. A biopic of World War II codebreaker extraordinaire/tragic life story subject Alan Turing has been in the works for a year or two. A script for the movie, called The Imitation Game, was put on the Black List (a list of scripts that industry folks are talking about but that haven’t been picked up yet) back in 2011, and last December the film got a director in the form of Morten Tyldum. And now Deadline is reporting that it’s close to having a star, too: Benedict Cumberbatch.



One Scary Mutha: Muschietti and del Toro Deliver With Mama

Children are not to be trusted. At least, that’s what a lifetime of horror-movie ingestion has taught us. If it’s a child- or child-shaped – don’t go near it, and definitely, absolutely, do not adopt. Ever. But, tired as the demonic child archetype may seem, don’t let the marketing for Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick MAMA fool you. Andres Muschietti’s debut mainstream feature is a classy, modern, often surprising take on the monster-in-the-house formula. Though it does nothing new where plot content is concerned, it gets points for style and execution. MAMA is a delicious morsel, to be sure, if not particularly substantial, delivering its goods in due course, with a few new ingredients. A new ice cream flavor is still ice cream, but we’ll take a new spin on a classic if it’s tasty.

(Contains less of what we might call “spoilers” and more “things that can be inferred from the trailer and promotional materials”. However, if being kept in the dark is important, proceed with caution.)


Watch The Scary Short That Inspired Guillermo del Toro’s New Film Mama, If You Dare

When Guillermo del Toro tells you something is one of the scariest thing he’s ever seen, it might be time to close your eyes. But for the purposes of this post, don’t do that, just make sure to go use the restroom first. Andy Muschietti and sister Barbara Muschietti created this short, which caught del Toro’s attention and got him behind the feature length film, Mama, starring Jessica Chastain and Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
