Winter has come, as the Starks have long warned us, but it won’t be around forever. And when it leaves, spring will bring a new season of Game of Thrones along with it.
HBO announced today that the fantasy drama would return for its fourth season Sunday, April 6 at 9:00 PM. That’s roughly the same time of year it’s premiered the last three seasons, so no surprises there. The new season will consist of ten episodes and will pick up where Season 3 left off, depicting the second half of Book 3.
Most of the principal cast members are expected to return — or the ones whose characters survived Season 3, anyway. New actors include Pedro Pascal as Oberyn Martell of Dorne, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Margaery’s father Mace Tyrell, Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris from the Iron Bank of Braavos.
Additionally, some roles were recast in the interim. Michiel Huisman will replace Ed Skrein in Season 4 as Daario Naharis, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson will take over for Ian Whyte as Ser Gregor Clegane, and Dean-Charles Chapman steps in for Callum Wharry as Joffrey’s brother Tommen.[Variety]

Briefly: After taking a bit of time to beat up Nazis and dabble in TV, Eli Roth is returning to his feature directing work next year with The Green Inferno. Open Road Films has just scheduled the cannibal horror pic to open on September 4, 2014. The only other film currently set to open that day is Addicted, a sex addiction drama starring Boris Kodjoe.
Written by Roth and Guillermo Amoedo, The Green Inferno follows a group of New York City student activists who head into the Amazon jungle to save a remote tribe from extinction. Once they get there, however, they discover that the people they’re trying to protect are a bunch of cannibals who want to eat them. Oops. Lorenza Isso, Ariel Levy, and Daryl Sabara star. [TheWrap]
Summit Entertainment just dated three movies, two big sequels and a major fantasy adventure. Arriving first is Step Up All In, the latest film in the dance franchise directed by Trish Sie. As the title suggests, it takes place in Las Vegas. It’ll be released July 25, 2014.
Next is Allegiant, the third film in the Divergent franchise. Divergent is that Shailene Woodley young adult film which opens in March, but already has a sequel, Insurgent, dated for March 20, 2015 and now the third film, newly dated for March 18, 2016.
Third is the latest film from Dark City director Alex Proyas. It’s called Gods of Egypt and stars Gerard Butler, Geoffrey Rush and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Proyas wrote and directs the fantasy adventure, featuring magic, gods, swords and more hits on February 12, 2016.

Simon Pegg‘s come up against some pretty strange things in his onscreen career — zombies, aliens, Tom Cruise — but his characters have typically been able to take those situations in stride. That’s not the case in Crisipian Mills‘ A Fantastic Fear of Everything, a surreal comedy about a murder mystery writer who, as the title suggests, lives in a constant state of terror.
His phobias run the gamut from serial killers to laundromats, and he seems to have a weird thing going with a stop-motion hedgehog. (I’d say it makes more sense once you’ve seen the trailer, but it doesn’t.) The movie opened in the U.K. over the summer, and now U.S. distributor Cinedigm has finally set a release date. Get the details and watch the trailer after the jump.

Briefly: The long, fascinating, yet disappointing tale that is Knights of Badassdom will soon come to an end. Originally directed by Joe Lynch, the film got huge buzz after a Comic-Con 2011 panel only to run into major investor issues and be wrestled out of the director’s hands. Lynch all but disowned the new version of the film, which sat on a shelf for two years before getting U.S. distribution thanks to eOne Entertainment.
That company has now decided to release the live action role playing, fantasy action film, starring Ryan Kwatten, Peter Dinklage, Summer Glau, Danny Pudi and Steve Zahn, On Demand February 11, 2014. You can request a theatrical screening via Tugg starting in January. However, this is in fact the producer’s cut, not the director’s cut. Read More »
