When news of this casting decision originally broke back in 2013, TMS expressed a wistful hope that perhaps there would actually be Egyptian actors cast in a movie about Egypt—and we definitely weren't alone.
Can you not.
OK, buckle up. We're doing this again. Game Of Thrones Season 5 is just around the corner, which means that various cast members are making the rounds giving interviews, talking about what's come before on the show and what's coming up next. In the former category we have Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, speaking up rather belatedly on that rape scene from last season.
Someone call The CW and make this a show immediately.
Amazing artist Maddie Chaffer captioned this adorable piece with, "Yes, Marvel? I would like a Guardians of the Galaxy prequel about teenage cyborg assassin sisters please." Couldn't have put it better ourselves. (via Tumblr)
It is known
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!
You know nothing Jon Snow
Also: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
fangirling over Brienne of Tarth, like you do.
old gods do new jobs
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?
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.

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
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.)
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 […]
Winter Is Coming
A report at WinterIsComing.net
has yielded some interesting rumors about season three of Game of Thrones
, now filming in Croatia and Northern Ireland. Warning: There are spoilers aplenty under the jump (and probably in the comments), but if you've already read A Storm of Swords
and are curious about how season three might differ from its written source material—particularly as regards lisping mercenary leader Vargo Hoat, a certain Harrenhal scene, and Edmure Tully—read on.
Game of Thrones is coming: Did you bring your coat? It was back in early March that HBO originally greenlit a series about George R. R. Martin's series of novels, A Song of Ice and Fire. Now we're getting confirmation of a 2011 release date, most likely in spring, and some sweet, dark, jittery footage to whet our appetites for the series.
