Even before Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters this weekend, we knew that the future of what is now a five-film franchise would have a focus on the villainous plans of Gellert Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp. This includes his conflict with Albus Dumbledore, who we know eventually stops him in 1945 thanks to the Harry Potter books.
As such, casting is underway to find an actor other than Michael Gambon to play Albus Dumbledore since the character is roughly 60 years younger in the Fantastic Beasts timeline than he is in the Harry Potter franchise. There haven’t been any names mentioned as being in talks for the role yet, so now that audiences are flocking to see Fantastic Beasts this weekend, we thought we’d propose some potential names for who should play young Albus Dumbledore in the future sequels. Find out who made our list after the jump. Read More »

With just two seasons left to go, it’s time for Game of Thrones to start tying up loose ends — including one pretty big one in the form of a certain character we haven’t seen in a while. Though HBO hasn’t yet confirmed this person is returning, the actor has been spotted on set as shooting gets underway in Spain. Find out who it is below, but beware spoilers. Read More »
We’ve got quite some time until we see the seventh season of Game of Thrones hit HBO. To accommodate the shooting schedule, the debut of the new season won’t arrive in spring like the previous seasons but will instead hit during the summer of 2017. That was also accompanied by confirmation that this season will have less episodes than the previous seasons as the show begins to wind down. In addition, the later premiere means this season of Game of Thrones wont be eligible to win any Emmys like it did not too long ago.
If you’re bummed out from us reminding you of all those facts, we’ll try to life your spirits up with some new Game of Thrones season 7 details, specifically about which characters Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) will finally meet. But beware that these details venture into spoiler territory, so beware from here on out. Read More »
Over the past few years, actor Brady Corbet has been a part of some great films. We saw the actor in Simon Killer, Force Majeure (which Fox Searchlight is remaking), Martha Marcy May Marlene, and a few other notable titles. Now he is stepping behind the camera with The Childhood of a Leader.
Corbet’s directorial debut stars Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones), Bérénice Bejo (The Past), Stacy Martin (Nymphomaniac), and, in a brief appearance, Robert Pattinson (Maps to the Stars). Corbet also managed to get singer-songwriter Scott Walker to compose the score, which is another reason to look forward to the actor’s film.
Below, watch The Childhood of a Leader trailer.

The premiere of Game of Thrones season 6 is only a few weeks away, so the trick now is making sure we don’t get hit by a car or plummet from the roof of a skyscraper or accidentally drink a liter of Drano. As the show has taught us, the Many-Faced God eventually comes for us all, but hopefully he’ll wait until after this season is over to shuffle us off this mortal coil. I expect this season to prove lots of long-gestating theories. Don’t take that from me, Death. Seriously. Cool your jets.
While you dodge death at every turn, you can take some pleasure in a new clip from the first episode of the new season, for which HBO also revealed a title and a cheeky synopsis.

Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington will soon shoot Safe House, in which a CIA trainee (Reynolds) has to transport a criminal (Washington) who is under fire from other enemies. Daniel Espinosa (Snabba Cash) is directing from a script by David Guggenheim. Now the film picked up four more actors: Brendan Gleeson, Robert Patrick, Sam Shepard and Liam Cunningham. No word on the roles for the quartet, but I hope they play the team trying to take down Denzel.
The film shoots starting next week, and has a February 10, 2012 release date. [Variety]
After the break, Ed Harris and Diane Keaton book a new film, Ari Folman’s The Congress gets one more, and a Glee cast member gets his own caper movie. Read More »
