Cersei's miscarriage

Game of Thrones may be over, but our watch has not ended. The HBO series left us with plenty to think about, but as we slowly begin to assess the show’s legacy, we’re still hearing trickles of information from those who were involved about how the show could have been different. We’ll tackle some of those revelations below to avoid putting spoilers out in the open, but one thing I want to tease is that actress Lena Headey has confirmed a scene was shot involving Cersei’s miscarriage – a plot point suspected by some fans, but which ultimately wasn’t included in the show. Read on for more on the final season of Game of Thrones, as well as some updates on the upcoming prequel series. Read More »

Fighting with My Family Trailer

Did you ever dream of becoming a professional wrestler when you were a kid? Well, in the new comedy Fighting with My Family, British siblings Paige (Florence Pugh) and Zak (Jack Lowden) certainly did, and it’s not something that they’ve given up even as they’ve grown into adults. It just so happens that dreams sometime come true, even in 2018, because they get the call from the WWE to come try out for the big leagues. And they somehow get taken under the wing of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. But as the Fighting with my Family trailer shows, they’re not both going to become WWE Superstars. Read More »

Trollhunters Part 2 trailer

Trollhunters, the Netflix animated series from Guillermo del Toro, is gearing up for a second season, and now there’s a trailer to get fans excited. The series is a tale of two worlds colliding – the normal world as we know it, and a secret underground world of trolls.

Banking on Mr. Toad

With Game of Thrones approaching its final season, its stars are soon going to be moving on to other projects. But here’s a follow-up I don’t think any of us foresaw: actress Lena Headey, who plays the fierce and cunning Cersei Lannister in the HBO fantasy series, is in talks to star in a film called Banking on Mr. Toad, which will blend live-action and CGI to tell the story of Kenneth Grahame, the author of the successful children’s novel Wind in the Willows.

trollhunters season 2

Guillermo del Toro is one of the busiest filmmakers working right now. It seems almost every other day the extremely talented visionary Crimson Peak director announces a new project. He has the excellent The Shape of Water hitting theaters soon (read our review), and he has the second season of his animated series Trollhunters currently in production at Netflix. And now two very familiar names have joined the Trollhunters cast: Luke Skywalker and Cersei Lannister. Okay, actually it’s Mark Hamill and Lena Headey. Hamill, Headey, and fellow Game of Thrones actor David Bradley have all been added to the Trollhunters season 2 cast.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Trailer

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is such a preposterous concept that it’s hard to believe it was published as a novel before it became a feature film. But here we are: a movie adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s parody is on the way and a new trailer has arrived to once again prove its existence. You just know that this whole endeavor has Jane Austen rolling over in her grave, which, considering the subject matter, is probably appropriate.

Watch the new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trailer after the jump.

Zipper trailer

Hey, did you hear the one about the ugly sex addict who can’t get laid? Of course you didn’t. We’ve got plenty of films and stories about sex addicts, with star-quality guys in the lead roles. (See: Sam Rockwell in Choke; Michael Fassbender in Shame; David Duchovny in Californication.) Now, in Zipper, Patrick Wilson plays a politician who can’t quit his escort habit, even when it threatens to derail his family and career.

Wilson’s co-stars include Lena Headey, Richard Dreyfuss, and Ray Winstone, and that trio may be enough to demand a viewing. Check out the Zipper trailer below. Read More »

Game of Thrones Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

The Lannister clan has plenty to worry about already on HBO’s Game of Thrones, but now two of them are about to face a threat possibly even greater than Daenerys’ dragons or Melisandre’s shadow monsters: Regency-era zombies.

Charles Dance and Lena Headey, who play Tywin and Cersei respectively, are set for the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. As the title indicates, it’s an adaptation of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice… plus zombies. More on the Game of Thrones Pride and Prejudice and Zombies casting after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Lena Headey Jacqueline Ess

David Cronenberg is the king of body horror, but the early works of Clive Barker have their own sharp and disturbing body horror angle, too. While most of the films based on his early short stories don’t make as much of that aspect as they might, there’s still hope for any new adaptation from the Books of Blood.

Now a story from the second Books of Blood volume is being brought to the screen, with Lena Headey in the lead role. Jacqueline Ess: Her Will and Testament is a story about a woman whose mental powers can change the form of peoples’ bodies, with fatal effect. She ends up using those powers to provide the sort of sexual experience that might give pause to even some of Barker’s characters featured in Hellraiser. The film, Jacqueline Ess, will be directed by Jovanka Vukovic. Read More »
