Still recovering from that downer of a Game of Thrones finale? Here’s a little something that might cheer you up. HBO has released a new promo for 7 Days of Hell, a 45-minute comedy film starring Andy Samberg and Jon Snow (a.k.a. Kit Harington) as two tennis rivals caught in an epic, record-setting match.
The supporting cast includes actual tennis players like Serena Williams, John McEnroe, and Chris Evert, plus reliably funny actors like Will Forte, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, Karen Gillan, Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, and June Squibb as the Queen.

Jon Snow isn’t exactly known for his lively sense of humor, but actor Kit Harington clearly doesn’t mind getting in touch with his silly side from time to time. Even as Game of Thrones races toward another (we assume) grim finale, HBO has released the first funny promo for Harington’s other HBO project, 7 Days in Hell.
The Christopher Guest-style mockumentary centers on a fictional tennis match that goes down in history as the longest ever. Harington and Andy Samberg play the exhausted rivals. Watch the 7 Days in Hell teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »

Alicia Vikander‘s year got off to a rough start with the long-delayed Seventh Son, before course-correcting with the excellent Ex Machina. But she’s still not done — far from it.
Her next big role is this summer’s Testament of Youth, a World War I romance with fellow up-and-comers Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service). Watch the Testament of Youth US trailer after the jump.

Game of Thrones‘ Jon Snow has plenty of good qualities. He’s clever and strong, loyal and courageous to a fault. And even his less pleasant traits make sense in context. You’d be a wet blanket, too, if all of your loved ones were dead and ice zombies were coming for everyone else.
All in all, his intense personality makes him pretty well suited for his current job as a brother of the Night’s Watch. But as Seth Meyers learns to his chagrin in this hilarious clip from Late Night, it also makes Jon a pretty terrible dinner party guest. Watch the Jon Snow dinner party sketch after the jump.

It’s a rite of passage at this point for rising 20something and 30something actors to log some time as part of a superhero franchise. If he had it his way, Kit Harington would be no different.
The Game of Thrones star confessed a burning desire to play Batman, which on the face of it makes sense. Harington certainly has experience playing broody heroes who only work in black and sometimes very, very dark gray. But the Batman he has in mind is more in line with the Adam West mold. Hit the jump to read the Kit Harington Batman comments. Read More »

Kit Harington and Alicia Vikander star in Testament of Youth as friends, and potential lovers, who are separated by the insanity of the First World War. Based on the memoir by Vera Brittain, considered one of the primary accounts of the war from a woman’s perspective, the film follows the dawning independence of Brittain (Vikander), and the relationship she forges with her brother’s friend, played by Harington. In this Testament of Youth UK trailer we’re treated to some glowing pullquotes, but also to many visions of England and Europe during the years before and during the war. This is a much more effective look at the film than the last trailer we saw; have a look below. Read More »
Since making the transition to English-language films, Alicia Vikander has been building a solid CV, or at least one dotted with big films.

More specifically, she’s got the WWI drama Testament of Youth, which shot this past spring with James Kent directing and co-stars Kit Harington, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, Dominic West, Emily Watson, Hayley Atwell, and Anna Chancellor. Here’s the first Testament of Youth trailer, introducing a young woman who chronicled her experience as a WWI nurse in an emotional memoir. Read More »

Even as HBO viewers the world over try to recover from last night’s True Detective finale, the network would like to remind you that there’s another acclaimed, buzzworthy HBO drama coming back up on the horizon. The new Game of Thrones Season 4 trailer opens on a fairly melancholy tone, as Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) bitterly recounts the horrors that have been visited upon her and her family.
Unfortunately for her but fortunately for us, the rest of the promo — along with some newly released plot synopses — suggest that Westeros’ troubles are far from over. Watch the Game of Thrones Season 4 trailer and get some new plot details after the jump.
