Here’s your first official video look at a couple of the big elements from Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Or, to be pedantic, one giant element and one human one. The video below is an “advertisement” for Trask Industries, a high-tech firm focused in part on national security. The head of the company is Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage, and in addition to the portrait above you’ll see him briefly in the video below.
The most famous product of Trask Industries may be Bolivar’s brainchild, the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots, and you’ll see one or two of them below, too, in their early versions. We saw some basic hints of them at Comic Con, but this is a much better look. Read More »

When Bryan Singer first announced that he’d added Peter Dinklage to the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the popular guess was that he’d be playing Alpha Flight member Puck. But that theory was quickly thrown out when a report spread that Dinklage would actually be playing the villain, which led to further fan speculation that Dinklage could be voicing a CG character.
Now, however, Singer has put that idea to rest as well. While the filmmaker still won’t reveal Dinklage’s part, he’s dropped a few bare hints in a recent interview. Hit the jump to learn more.

Peter Dinklage relies on nothing but his wits to get ahead on Game of Thrones, but now he’s looking to pick up some real powers. The Golden Globe winner has just boarded Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past, in a role that has yet to be revealed.
Dinklage is the first fresh face in the cast, which so far consists of returning stars from X-Men: First Class (James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult) and the original X-Men trilogy (Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore). Hit the jump to keep reading.
Update: There’s a slightly more detailed report that says Dinklage will be the villain, so forget some of the fancasting that has been going on. more details below.

In the decade or so since the start of Fox’s Ice Age series, the franchise has pulled in a range of high-profile stars including Jack Black, Will Arnett, Jay Leno, and Simon Pegg to compliment its central quartet of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, and Chris Wedge.
This time around, for Steve Martino and Michael Thurmeier‘s Ice Age: Continental Drift, the core characters are joined by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Nick Frost, Rebel Wilson, Aziz Ansari, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, and more. It’s a very solid cast, but is the project worthy of their talents? Watch the first trailer after the jump and decide for yourself. Read More »

Believe it or not, there’s just 34 days left to go until the second season premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones. And as that date approaches, the teasers and trailers have been getting ever so slightly more revealing. The latest ditches the dramatic narration of the last two, so we get more dialogue this time around — and, consequently, a better idea of the struggles the characters will be facing in the upcoming season. Watch the video after the jump. (Spoilers for Season One follow, obviously.)

Though I was excited by the earlier teaser for Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, at the risk of sounding like a swooning fangirl, I have to say that even that pales in comparison to this new trailer. This time around, it’s Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) who takes over narrating duties, explaining exactly who everyone is and what they’re doing — without actually revealing anything at all, of course. Tricky eunuch bastard. Naturally, Golden Globe and Emmy winner Peter Dinklage gets some good face time as well. Watch the video after the jump. (Warning: Spoilers for Season 1 follow.)

Now this is more like it. The first teaser we got for Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones revealed absolutely nothing about the upcoming season, and though we’ve gotten some better looks since then — thanks to some behind-the-scenes production videos and a handful of set photos — it’s great to finally have a proper teaser with dramatic shots of the characters and landscapes to go with the requisite ominous voiceover.
Given that Season 2 will be based on A Clash of Kings, Book 2 of George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series, it seems entirely appropriate that the narration in this teaser comes from one of the men determined to win the Iron Throne for himself: the brittle, humorless Stannis Baratheon, played by Stephen Dillane. Watch the trailer after the jump. (Warning: Major spoilers for Season 1/Book 1 ahead.)

I don’t actually believe this for a second, but it’s a slow day so far, and any M.O.D.O.K. news is great news. So here you go: Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America 2 co-writer Christopher Markus is thinking of a way to make the Cap sequel very interesting. Namely, he’s talking up the idea of casting Peter Dinklage as wacky Marvel villain M.O.D.O.K., aka the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. Read More »
