New Dungeons and Dragons Movie Cast

The cast of the new Dungeons and Dragons movie continues to grow, and this time Paramount Pictures has dug into one of Netflix’s recent hit shows to find their latest star. Regé-Jean Page is one of the breakout stars of Bridgerton, the Gossip Girl-esque period romance produced by Shonda Rhimes, and just before he steps up to host Saturday Night Live this weekend, he’s now taken a role in the fantasy adventure film based on the role-playing game of the same name.

lord of the rings series

Elijah Wood knows a thing or two about The Lord of the Rings. Having starred in all three of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings films, Wood probably familiarized himself with the source material by J.R.R. Tolkien (though not as much as his co-star and avowed Tolkien scholar Christopher Lee), which spanned the eponymous trilogy as well as The Hobbit prequel and The Silmarillion mythopoeic collection. So Wood is more than a little in the right when he calls the titling of Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings series “bizarre.”

In a recent interview, the director of Man of SteelBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the upcoming Snyder Cut of Justice League revealed that he’s been thinking about making a King Arthur movie, one that he refers to as “faithful.” But exactly what does that approach look like when presented with an ever-evolving legend?

Lovecraft Country season 2

The first season of Lovecraft Country moved at breakneck speed, with showrunner Misha Green often putting as much plot in a single episode as other showrunners would in an entire season of a different show. Season 1 seemed to have a concrete ending, but HBO is excited about the possibilities for a potential second season.

During the Television Critics Association press tour, HBO and HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys said Green and a small team of writers are currently coming up with a take for Lovecraft Country season 2, and he’s “hopeful” they will end up generating a story worth telling.

Game of Thrones spin-offs

Despite the ending of Game of Thrones landing with somewhat of a cultural thud, HBO knows there is loads of untapped potential in the fictional land of Westeros. There are multiple prequel shows in various stages of development, and in a new interview, HBO and HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys does not rule out the chance of direct Game of Thrones spin-offs hitting the small screen one day. Would you want to see a whole show following the continuing adventures of Jon Snow, or maybe tracking Arya as a pirate sailing the high seas?
