Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Has a New Trailer, Looks Better Than Ever

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' newest trailer is longer and a little scarier than the first look we had at the movie earlier this month, but it features just as much ass-kicking, period dress, and self-deprecating humor. Also, it's got Lena Headey. What's not to like?

I will take what is mine with Mountain Dew & Doritos.

Let’s All Celebrate Lena Headey’s Birthday With a Poetical Tribute to Drunk Cersei

Don't act surprised here.

Happy birthday to our favorite drunk royal (and one of our favorite people, let's be honest) Lena Headey. I could have let this occasion go by unremarked upon, disappearing into the sands of time for another year. Or. I could write a poem about Drunk Cersei, complete with gifs, as all poems should be. I think you know what I chose.

Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey Gave An Interview As Drunk Cersei, And It Was Glorious

More wine.

Jimmy Kimmel did what I would do if I met Lena Headey and asked her to converse with him as drunk Cersei. Well, no. If I met Lena Headey I'd probably pull a Troy Barnes meeting LeVar Burton. But this is much better.

Someone Finally Asked Lena Headey About That Controversial Game Of Thrones Scene

What It Says On the Tin

Lena Headey is a powerful actress. Whether she's playing a time-traveling momma, or Ma-Ma, you can't help but be captivated by her when she's on screen. Headey, of course, also stars as Cersei Lannister on HBO's Game of Thrones and was one of the actors involved in a scene making some major waves with fans. We'd already heard what the director, executive producer, George R.R. Martin, and actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau had to say on it but Headey has finally been asked for her opinion on the subject.

Lena Headey Talks Female Characters, Cersei’s Big Game of Thrones Scene, Continues to Be Flipping Wonderful

Winter Is Coming

In interviews leading up to 300: Rise of an Empire (review here), Lena Headey—who, with Eva Green, was the best, or maybe only truly good, part of that movie—had some things to say about how TV's provided something of a renaissance for strong female characters. One of those, of course, is Cersei Lannister, and Headey also spoke about a certain pivotal scene for her Game of Thrones character. Spoiler-free hint for book readers: Take a walk. (The bottom of this post has unmarked spoilers for Game of Thrones--I'll warn you when to skedaddle if you're avoiding them.)

This! Isn’t! Sparta!: On 300:Rise of an Empire


Do we make movies a certain way because we think it’s what an audience wants to see? Is it right to choose your audience before your film is released, and damn whoever else dares to watch it? These questions were the ones causing the headache that followed my viewing of 300: Rise of an Empire. A sea of machismo and crimson gushing, 300:Rise of an Empire is a high-camp successor to the much lauded 300, the highly fictionalized tale of the three hundred Spartan warriors who stood their ground against an insurmountable force at the Hot Gates. (Still not as good as the Samurai Jack episode featuring the Spartan 300, the bar by which all representations of the Battle of Thermopylae should be judged, robot minotaurs and all.) More of a straightforward war story, 300:RoaE lacks the degree of self-importance its predecessor had. Yet for all its bombast and innovative gore, 300:RoaE is a picture that has no problem excluding part of its potential viewership. It may know exactly what it is, but it never tries to move one inch beyond the expected. Bloody, messy spoilers beyond the cut.
