Production on the X-Men spin-off New Mutants is rumored to begin in April or May this year with The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone at the helm. 20th Century Fox hasn’t made any official announcement about the project, but there have been plenty of details that have surfaced. Now one of those details seems to have been confirmed by Josh Boone himself.
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has been linked to the cast of New Mutants, though no word on her involvement has been confirmed by anyone. Josh Boone may have just done that though by sharing a piece of art featuring the actress as Rahne Sinclair, the mutant who comes to be known as Wolfsbane, due to the fact that she can transform into a wolf.

While Game of Thrones season 6 was home to its fair share of horror and misery, it was downright merciful compared to previous seasons, allowing many of the main characters to actually get on the path leading toward their future goals (instead of, you know, pushing them off the path with a bloody bludgeon comprised of war and intrigue). In a new interview, series star Maisie Williams, who plays the increasingly dangerous and weary Arya Stark, pretty much says we can expect the same thing from season 7 – we’ll see some victories, but also some crushing defeats.

Rumors that Maisie Williams will be in New Mutants remain unconfirmed for now, but we can say for sure she’ll be starring in an upcoming superhero film. Sadly, it’s not as the superhero. Instead, iBoy has her as the BFF / love interest to Tom (Bill Milner), a teenager who gains superpowers after a violent attack leaves him with bits of smartphone embedded in his brain. It all sounds pretty silly, but then again so does “teenager gains superpowers after radioactive spider bite.”
Netflix has just unveiled the first iBoy trailer for you to judge, and you can check it out after the jump. Read More »
As we get closer to the end of the year, we’re starting to get trailers for movies that are getting unceremoniously dumped in January so as to have little to no competition with early spring blockbusters, the prime summer tentpoles or the previous month’s awards contenders. One of those is a new comedy that played at Tribeca under the title The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea, but now it has a new title and a telling release date.
The Book of Love has a promising cast featuring Jason Sudeikis and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams in the story of a widower who sets out to help a young homeless girl build a vessel so she can literally set sail on a metaphorical new path for her life.

Game of Thrones is a pretty grim show and always has been. This is a drama whose season premiere ends with a child getting pushed out a window, and whose first season ended with its noblest hero getting decapitated. But according to stars Kit Harington and Maisie Williams, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. With just two shortened seasons left, the actors are teasing a “very bleak” turn for the series. Because things weren’t depressing enough for the Starks already.
Spoilers for the most recent season ahead! Read More »

Game of Thrones season 6 is officially less than a month away and you don’t need the show’s creators telling you that this is the best season yet to get excited. The promise of more Game of Thrones should be enough all by itself. And while fans are excited to watch that gigantic battle sequence and collect their winnings after betting that Jon Snow would come back from the dead, a batch of new images remind us what’s really important: the show’s sprawling cast and characters we love. And their hopeless, completely screwed-up lives.

The future of Pacific Rim 2 was uncertain for a little bit, but Universal Pictures is supposedly still dedicated to making the sequel at some point, even though they took it off their 2017 release calendar. And it sounds like Guillermo del Toro is still eyeing certain stars for the sequel, and he just revealed one of the hopefuls.
The director posted on his recently created Twitter page that he had lunch with Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), and he very clearly indicated that he will have her on board for Pacific Rim 2. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
I don’t know anything about the book The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but the title is so weird and awesome that I might have to buy it today. Or I could wait until the movie version comes out, and that might be pretty good, too, because Maisie Williams of Game of Thrones is in talks to lead the cast. This move does make me wonder about the future for Williams and the in-development film adaptation of The Last of Us, however, for reasons I’ll go into below. Read More »
Here’s the new trailer for Doctor Who season nine, and this footage features a whole collection of wild shots, many of which seem to be from the two-part opening story. Among the many sights in this trailer are a few shots that suggest details of the Maisie Williams Doctor Who guest role, briefly glimpsed at the end of the first trailer, and suggested much more heavily now thanks to shots like the one above.
But she’s not even the lone highlight of this trailer, as there are Daleks, other alien sights, and more of Peter Capaldi‘s grit as this incarnation of the Doctor. You can see both the new trailer and the first one below. Read More »
