George R.R. Martin is getting pretty serious about finishing his last two novels in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Just a few weeks back, the creator of Game of Thrones revealed the disappointing news that he will not be attending the World Fantasy Convention or Comic-Con 2015 so that he can finish working on his sixth book entitled The Winds of Winter. Now, the author says he isn't going to write an episode for Game of Thrones Season 6, either. He explains:
""[A]fter wrestling with it for a month or so, I've decided not to script an episode for season six of Game of Thrones. Writing a script takes me three weeks, minimum, and longer when it is not a straight adaptation from the novels. And really, it would cost me more time than that, since I have never been good at changing gears from one medium to another and back again. »

Shut out at the BAFTAs, and nominated for eight Academy Awards and winning Best Adapted Screenplay for screenwriter Graham Moore, Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game and all the awards glory surrounding its release has resulted in the film being representative as a sort of cultural marker. In a year that saw the Academy heavily criticized for its noticeably white nominees across every major category, the inclusion of Tyldum as Best Director and the title amongst the Best Picture nominees came as a bit of a surprise considering the film’s very routine, unavoidably square structure as a well-intentioned, noble biopic. Marketed with urgent desperation as a film exploring the persecution of homosexuality while making a marked statement about the recuperation of the facts concerning the genius of Alan Turing, the accolades bestowed on this otherwise well mounted but incredibly milquetoast production is the political statement that the film simply »

Send a raven. Game of Thrones is back. And there couldn't possibly have been a more fitting location for Wednesday night's season 5 world premiere than the Tower of London. Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer and Charles Dance were among the stars from the acclaimed HBO fantasy drama who brought Westeros to London, where the walls of the "Bloody Tower" were emblazoned with illuminated projections of dragons and flames that flickered along the red carpet. Even the much-coveted Iron Throne found its way to to the historic fortress, which just happens to be circled by ravens - though not the three-eyed kind. »

With just under one month left until the Season 5 premiere of HBO's Game of Thrones, the network has released two new clips, one of which reveals why the episode is entitled "The Wars to Come". The first scene features Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), who escaped from Westeros at the end of Season 4, conversing with the man who helped him get out of King's Landing, Lord Varys (Conleth Hill). Since Varys is not related to the Lannisters in any way, Tyrion asks him why he arranged the escape. Varys reveals that he did what he did for the good of the realm, and that a man of Tyrion's talents will be needed in "the wars to come."
The second clip takes us north of the Wall, with Jon Snow (Kit Harington) talking to Mance Rayder (Ciarán Hinds) about pride. This clip also references that Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and his »

Russian producers Alexander Kulikov (Marins Group Entertainment) and Oleg Teterin (Teterin Film) are planning to make a feature film, Listyev – Hope is The Last To Die, about the prominent Russian journalist and TV presenter Vladislav Listyev who was murdered by unknown assassins on March 1, 1995.
According to Teterin, they are considering Oliver Stone along with Russian film-makers as a possible candidate to serve as the film’s director.
“We hope that the participation in a project of such significance for Russia as a film about Vladislav Listyev will be a natural way for Oliver Stone to continue strengthening his cinematic ties with Russia,” said Teterin whose company last year acquired the rights to Stone’s The Untold Story Of The United States which was later broadcast on Russia’s First Channel.

Running Time: 114 minutes
Extras: Making The Imitation Game, Alan Turing: Man & Enigma, Heroes of Bletchley
The Imitation Game is an outstanding introduction and exploration of the remarkable life of genius Alan Turing, his unique work, alongside a dedicated team at Bletchley Park, had a historic effect on the outcome of the Second World War. The story had been hidden for 29 years before it was revealed in 1974 and although many of us have known about the story specific story of Enigma, I feel that Turing’s remarkable and vital involvement hadn’t really been told to a wider audience until now.
Cumberbatch is a striking fit for the character that is both in the truest sense a genius and at a loss for his connection to ‘normal’ life, whatever that is, his »

The Weinstein Company and Anchor Bay Home Entertainment have announced a March 31st Blu-ray release for The Imitation Game, which won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar at last weekend’s ceremony.
Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and Keira Knightley (Begin Again), who were both nominated for Oscars for their performances here, star alongside Matthew Goode (Watchmen), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) and Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service), and the film is directed by Morten Tyldum.
Pre-order The Imitation Game Here
During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. Instead, they arrested Turing on charges of “gross indecency,” an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality. Little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, »

If there’s one thing that is, for me, an unqualified triumph in Alien 3, it’s Elliot Goldenthal’s score. With its cacophonous drums and heart-rending strings, it soared where the film itself faltered.
But as I’ve argued many, many times on these pages, Alien 3 is itself a flawed masterpiece. Sure, it stepped roughly all over the story established in Aliens, but there were plans to kill off Newt and Hicks before first-time director David Fincher even came aboard.
Saddled with a film without an adequately finished script, an interfering studio and a looming release date, Fincher remained true to the gloomy vision laid out for him: Sigourney Weaver wanted the sequel to be her last, »
Because everyone needs more laughing in their life -- especially the denizens of Westeros -- HBO has thankfully put out a second blooper reel from the fourth season of "Game of Thrones." As we’ve previously seen, the "GoT" cast gets along quite well, to the point where the camaraderie on set leads to unfortunate (yet hilarious) mishaps. In the new blooper reel below, the cast members forget their lines, crack up when inappropriate and fall down multiple sets of stairs. Ser Pounce misbehaves and Charles Dance almost breaks the Iron Throne, but all is well with a perfect shot of Pedro Pascal at the end. Season 5 of "Game of Thrones" begins April 12 on HBO. Check out the blooper reel below. Read More: Watch: Peter Dinklage Dances and Screws Up His Accent in Hilarious 'Game of Thrones' Blooper Reel »

Michael Stevens for 'The Good':
"...'The Imitation Game' is a fast-paced thriller based on a true story, starring actor Benedict Cumberbatch in a sympathetic (sometimes pitiful) turn as English mathematician 'Alan Turing', whose calculated efforts at breaking the 'Third Reich's 'enigma' code, turned the tide for the Allies in WWII.
"Mark Strong is a reassuring presence as 'Stewart Menzies', the sly head of 'MI6'.
"Charles Dance is suitably crusty as battle-worn, cynical 'Commander Denniston'.
"Keira Knightley as math whiz 'Joan Clarke' does her job as a 'feminist' romantic interest for Turing (?!) and is pleasing (as usual) to look at..."
Graf Orlok for 'The Bad':
"Michael, I agree that Keira Knightley does get some nice close-ups of her pouty lips, »

Earlier this week, we revealed new deleted scenes from Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray and DVD, which was released earlier this week. While fans continue the long wait for Season 5, we have a new gag reel from the hit HBO series, which features stars such as Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and many more screwing up their lines and even losing their balance.
In Season 4, while the Lannisters' hold on the Iron Throne remains intact, new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east threaten to tip the scales. As Stannis Baratheon and Daenerys Targaryen continue to grow their respective armies, the arrival of the Lannister-loathing "Red Viper of Dorne" poses a more immediate danger. In the north, the depleted Night's Watch seems overmatched against the advances of Mance Rayder's army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even »
For those who aren't quite caught up with HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray and DVD was released today, giving fans just under two months to get up to speed before Season 5 debuts April 12. If you haven't gotten a chance to pick up your copy quite yet, HBO has released two deleted scenes that weren't featured during the show's Season 4 run last year. The first scene features Bronn (Jerome Flynn) telling a distraught Shae (Sibel Kekilli) that it's time for her to adapt, after Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) dismisses her, while the second scene features Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) warning Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) to never betray her.

HBO’s most talked about series returns this April, so what better way to get up-to-date and in the Got mood before the new season begins than by watching the Season 4 Blu-ray or DVD. Based on the second half of George R.R. Martin’s novel A Storm of Swords, this one features, as you’d expect, the usual unexpected twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat.

Rumours persist that HBO's Game Of Thrones will build towards a movie release at some point in its run, probably at the end of it. The cast of the show have been doing promotional work for both the disc release of Game Of Thrones season 4 and the upcoming Game Of Thrones season 5 too, and somewhat inevitably, questions about a possible film were not far away.
Turner noted that Game Of Thrones "was a huge success in IMAX - but I think the reason it was a success is because it's a TV show, and because it's the first TV show »
In this exclusive sneak peek at the bonus footage from the "Game of Thrones" Season 4 release (due out on February 17), Pedro Pascal cracks up his co-stars, telling the story of one of his favorite moments from the set.
"I have many. I'll pick one -- shooting an orgy that gets interrupted by Charles," he says, when asked for an enjoyable memory.

Last year, Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) claimed that producers on the HBO series were actively discussing a big screen outing.
"I'm not gonna rule it out," Turner told press including Digital Spy.
"It was a huge success in IMAX - but I think the reason it was a success is because it's a TV show, and because it's the first TV show to be done in IMAX."
Recent IMAX screenings of two Game of Thrones episodes across the Us took $1.5 million at the box office from 205 playdates.
"It's just so magnificent - the Battle of Blackwater was incredible on IMAX - and so I don't know if they would do a movie," said Turner - who plays Sansa Stark.
"I know there's been rumours going round in the press [about a feature film] - but for now, I'm »
