Charles Dance (TV’s Game of Thrones, The Imitation Game) and Rutger Hauer (Sin City, Batman Begins) star in this epic adventure about a 17th century Dutch admiral, who must lead his fleet to defend his homeland from the terrorising forces of England.
Admiral Michiel de Ruyter is the most famous, and one of the most skilled admirals in Dutch history, most celebrated for his role in the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the 17th century. He was held in the highest esteem by his sailors and soldiers, who used the term Bestevaêr (Grandfather) for him, as a result of his disregard for hierarchy and his refusal to back away from risky and bold undertakings despite his usually reserved and calculated nature.
We are giving one lucky reader the chance to win Admiral on DVD due to be released on 3rd August 2015. The winner will also receive a LG 42″ inch entry Led full HD TV, »

Never mind Kit Harington's hair, this is the real reason why the Jon Snow rumors won't stay dead. As Watchers on the Wall noted, "Game of Thrones" Season 6 starts filming this week, and Kit -- who is being stalked for Jon Snow spoilers, bless him -- was once again spotted on a flight to Belfast, Northern Ireland, a key location for GoT production. One of the site's readers, who was on the flight from London to Belfast, spotted both Kit and Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H'ghar).

It would be one thing if this was the only time Kit was seen. Then maybe you could argue that he was returning to film a dead body scene, ala Charles Dance for Tywin Lannister. »

One of the last Enigma coding machines that the Nazis used to send encrypted messages during the Second World War has sold at auction.
The device was valued between £50,000 and £70,000 but sold for a whooping £149,000, Sotheby's told BBC News.
It's thought that the recent Imitation Game movie helped boost the Enigma's value, although it doesn't beat the $269,000 (£172,350) paid for another model in April.
The Nazis believed the Enigma machines were impossible to crack with 159,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible settings.
However, British scientist Alan Turing developed a machine of his own, the Bombe, to decipher the codes.
During the war, around 100,000 Engimas were in use but the Nazis destroyed most of them as they retreated.
Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.
But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.
So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »
I’ve been working on a brand new game to add to the rotation and got the opportunity to give it a go last week at San Diego Comic-Con. Welcome to the very first edition of Collider’s movie-themed “Would You Rather!” The goal is to have some fun, but a top priority of the game is also to give a little insight into how a filmmaker likes to work, his or her on-set preferences, etc. Shortly after the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Hall H panel, I got the opportunity to sit down with Matt Smith who plays Mr. Collins and Jack Huston who plays Wickham. Lily James leads the adaptation of the Seth Grahame-Smith book as Elizabeth Bennet. She’s basically the same Elizabeth Bennet featured in the original Jane Austen novel except for the fact that she and her four sisters, Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady »

It took a long time for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get the green light and I assume that's for a reason. I wasn't as large a detractor when it came to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as most (he threw a cow people!), but I have to assume the major selling point behind getting this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's revisionist novel is the fact not only will Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters be hunting zombies, but they'll be embracing keeping their weapons in some of the most discrete of places. Along with a batch of new pictures from the film, Entertainment Weekly has a quote from star Lily James, who plays Elizabeth Bennet, saying, "Rather than knitting and crocheting, they're polishing muskets... She's the most badass zombie slayer there is." The Bennet sister are trained to fight like ninjas by Mr Darcy (Sam Riley) and the film has »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have a bunch of new photos from the upcoming "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," starring Lily James (Cinderella), Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance and Lena Headey. Check everything out below. Plot: A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield. The new movie is directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and is set to hit theaters on February 5th, 2016. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
EW’s rather fantastic San Diego Comic-Con Preview continues with fresh new images from the long in development, at last in production adaption of Seth Graheme-Smith’s famous literature/zombie mash-up, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, starring Lily James, Sam Riely, Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Lena Heady, and Charles Dance. There’s not much zombie action on display here, but plenty of Jane Austen’s heroines as bad ass zombie fighters, and a real sense that director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) is going for a very grounded tone to the material. As he tells EW, “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight. The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink. It’s definitely not camp.” Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is released in the U.S. on February 5th 2016, and »

The most surprising thing about "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"? That they actually ended up making it. After losing three directors and at least one major star (Natalie Portman), the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling mashup novel is finally headed to the big screen, and EW has the exclusive on the first official images from the film, which director Burr Steers ("Igby Goes Down") says will be played without the tongue-in-cheek tone readers of the book may have been expecting: “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Steers told EW. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” Added star Lily James ("Cinderella"): “It’s definitely not camp.” You can view the images below. But first, here's a capsule history of the long-in-the-works production: April 2009: Seth Grahame-Smith's »

The latest take on Jane Austen’s classic love story is a little, how should we say… revisionist. In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, out next February, it is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.
Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, which riffed raucously on Austen’s classic, this new Pride and Prejudice imagines Elizabeth Bennet and her corset-clad sisters as warriors of the Victorian era, searching for husbands while simultaneously fending off hordes of the undead.
“Rather than knitting and crocheting, they’re polishing muskets,” says Lily James, the Cinderella actress who plays Elizabeth, to EW, which debuted the above images. Of Lizzy, James says, “She’s the most badass zombie slayer there is.”
Even more fascinating than the reimagined Elizabeth, though, may be the tone director Burr Steers is aiming to strike. »
