And these dragons are gorgeous. With less than a month left to wait for the Season 4 premiere of HBO‘s epic-defining Game of Thrones, the sneak peeks are getting more and more gasp-inducing.

Proof-of-concept trailers are often more about good editing than decent shots, often blending existing footage from other films with some hastily shot live-action scenes and some visual effects work.
Every now and then though one leaves a major impression, such as today's for "Enemy Of Man," an ambitious new film adaptation of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" that is currently seeking Kickstarter funds.
The trailer boasts an impressive cast including Sean Bean as the Scottish prince, Jason Flemyng as Macduff, Charles Dance as King Duncan, James D'Arcy as Banquo, Rupert Grint as Ross and Neil Maskell as Kern. Lady MacBeth they're keeping the identity of under wraps though Charlotte Gainsbourg's name has been linked.
According to the Kickstarter page for the film, the plan is to showcase a "unique cinematic quality, stripping back the dialogue and cranking up the action. It traverses a bleak, frozen landscape of shattered castles and pillaged towns, »

With a month to go before HBO unveils “Game of Thrones” Season 4 on the masses, here is another trailer, this one titled “Secrets.” The secrets to “Game of Thrones’” success? Lots of sex and violence and bad people doing very bad things. It sucks to be a good guy in this show. From the looks of it, things are about to get a lot more epic when it comes to the dragon lady, while things sort of calm down a bit over at Westeros and that whole battle for the throne thing. Well, the battle is won, I guess, with the snotty kid sitting pretty. Starring Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clark (aka the new Sarah Connor), Charles Dance, Lena Headey (aka the old Sarah Connor), and a bunch of people, including a very solemn Sophie Turner. Apparently her character’s life kinda sucks. Shoulda just jump out the window, kid, it »
The Kickstarter bug is catching on both side of the Atlantic. Giving the Zach Braffs and Veronica Marses of the crowdsourcing world a glint of British steel is a new adaptation of Macbeth, Enemy Of Man, starring Sean Bean as the Scottish prince whose name cannot be mentioned - oops! - and Jason Flemyng as MacDuff. The project has a 'concept' trailer to help sell its wares to potential investors. Watch it below. Also aboard on this new take on William Shakepeare's great tragedy are Cloud Atlas's James D'Arcy as Banquo, Charles Dance as Duncan, Rupert Grint as Pj Rosse - the 'beth's cousin - and Flemyng as the defiant figure of Macduff. Don't confuse this with the Michael Fassbender fronted Macbeth currently in full swing. Runs the synopsis: "The Enemy Of Man will have a unique cinematic quality, stripping back the dialogue and cranking up the action. It traverses a bleak, »
Still steaming about the HBO Go outage that killed your plans to watch True Detective’s finale? This might help: On Sunday, the cabler premiered another new trailer for the fourth season of Game of Thrones, which premieres in a few short weeks. (They’d better get their server issues sorted out by then, or we will take what is ours, with fire and blood!)
Though the clip doesn’t feature many new revelations, it does include several shots of interest, especially for those who have read George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire saga: Sansa (Sophie Turner »

HBO has released yet another trailer for the fourth season of Game of Thrones. Watching this trailer, it's important to remember that there are still only ten episodes, and we've got quite a lot of storylines on our hands. At some point, we may want to be grateful for some character deaths if only to unburden the plot. Of course, I say that now and then all the characters I like will probably be slaughtered. So much for the bright side. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The show stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Charles Dance, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maisie Williams, Aiden Turner, Iain Glen, Rose Leslie, Carice Van Houten, Alfie Allen, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, and Isaac Hempstead Wright. New cast this season include Pedro Pascal, Michiel Huisman, and Indira Varma. Game of Thrones returns on April 6th at 9pm on HBO. »

Warning: contains potential spoilers for a returning character in Doctor Who series eight.
The whispers about this one have been doing the fan community rounds for a while now, part hopeful wish and part rumour: is The Master returning to Doctor Who in series eight?
Oh yes, says Sylvester McCoy, who was reported to have let the 'news' slip at a recent Newcastle Film and Comic Con panel. And what's more, says McCoy, John Simm's role has already been recast. McCoy didn't reveal who he claims would be playing The Master, save for saying that the actor is "very scary".
Our hands currently overspilling with clutched-straws, could this possibly tally with the rumour that Michael Smiley is to appear in series eight as "Colonel Blue »
Following a matrimonial slaughter, Game of Thrones remerges for a 10 episode fourth season on HBO.
Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact…but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, »
Less than a month now separates us from Season 4 of Game of Thrones. If you don’t have time to rewatch Season 3 to prepare, HBO has very kindly provided us with a where-we-left-off synopsis below, followed by a lengthy list of returning cast members and a reminder of their roles, a list of several newbies and a quick word about who they play.
After all that come the somewhat spoilery synopses of April episodes. They’re pretty vague, but it may at least indicate who survives from episode to episode. I’m happy to report that there will be at least one Hodor sighting, but I’m not telling when; you’ll have to look for yourself.
Following that press release, check out the TV spot and press release for the free downloadable hip hop and reggaeton 10-song mixtape inspired by Game of Thrones, entitled Catch the Throne. Because why not? »

After we dug into what will happen in "Game of Thrones" Season 4's first four episode based on their titles, now HBO has released their official synopses.
First up, here is how HBO describes Season 4 in a press release:
"Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters' hold on the Iron Throne remains intact ... but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing 'Red Viper of Dorne,' arrives at King's Landing to attend Joffrey's wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda.

London — “Boardwalk Empire” and “American Hustle” thesp Jack Huston is to star as English monarch Charles II in Ecosse Films’ 17th-century period drama “The Great Fire of London,” which has been greenlit by U.K. free-to-air channel ITV.
The four-parter, which will unfold over four consecutive days, centers on Thomas Farriner, played by Andrew Buchan (“Broadchurch”), whose bakery in London’s Pudding Lane was at the heart of the catastrophic fire in 1666.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen (“Dracula,” “Mr Selfridge”) plays Charles’ brother, James Duke of York, while Daniel Mays (“Mrs Biggs,” “Treasure Island,” “Public Enemies”) appears as diarist Samuel Pepys, a close confidante of the King. Perdita Weeks (“The Invisible Woman”) will play Pepys’ wife Elizabeth.
- Leo Barraclough
The Great Fire - due to start shooting later this month - will tell the story of humble baker Thomas Farriner and his fabled involvement in The Great Fire of London.
Broadchurch star Buchan will play Thomas, with Leslie cast as his fictional sister-in-law Sarah.

Here's a wee bit of Breaking Bad-related fun. Viewers of Top Gear, the BBC's motoring magazine show, will have seen Aaron Paul appear in Sunday's Star In A Reasonably Priced Car segment. The premise, for anyone unfamiliar, involves a celebrity trying to best their fellow stars in a modest vehicle on a racing circuit mixed in with a bit of Jeremy Clarkson-led chat. Previous entrants this series (using a Vauxhall Astra, fact fans) have included the geek delights of Benedict Cumberbatch, Ron Howard, Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Jackman and Charles Dance. Not bad company for Paul, we're sure you'll agree.
The driving bit kicks off at around the six minute mark. We won't ruin his result for those of you who haven't seen it, »
Yeah, bitch! It was a performance that would have made Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman proud. Aaron Paul took on the Top Gear Reasonably Priced Car challenge and stormed it, topping the celebrity leaderboard.
He modestly claimed at the start of the lap that he simply didn't want to finish bottom of the leaderboard, but it was clear he was taking the task seriously as he quietly uttered the word "bitch" to himself as he took a corner.
The Vauxhall Astra Top Gear Leaderboard:
1:44.7 - Aaron Paul
1:45.1 - Brian Johnson
1:45.6 - Jimmy Carr
1:46.1 - Hugh Jackman
1:46.7 - David Haye
1:46.8 - Warwick Davis
1:47.8 - Benedict Cumberbatch
1:48.5 - Rachel Riley

We’ve seen the phrase “Valar Morghulis” superimposed on all of the 18 character posters released this week for Season 4 of HBO‘s gorgeous epic Game of Thrones, and saw the translation as “All Men Must Die” on the TV spots. Today we see the translated phrase incorporated into the series poster for Season 4, along with a very creepy three-eyed raven. Because all three-eyed ravens are creepy:
So, developing my comment on yesterday’s GoT post a little further: As a fan of the series who hasn’t read the books, I’m choosing to believe that “All Men Must Die” is something Dany, who speaks High Valyrian, uses for her Season 4 battle cry. Having had enough of men, she will decide they must all die, leaving her to rule over all women from the Iron Throne, with the help of her dragons. And that “All Men Must Serve” response is something the men say, »

Like the recent trailer, a batch of new posters for the fourth season of Game of Thrones seems bent on preparing us for an onslaught of characters deaths. The tagline "All Men Must Die" is translation of "Valar morghulis", which is the High Valyrian taught to Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) by Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) in season two. The previous set of posters focused on the Lanisters, and now the rest of the cast is getting their close-ups. If you're like me and haven't read the books, how many of these poor sods are going to make it to season five. Hit the jump to check out the posters. The show also stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Charles Dance, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Aiden Turner, Iain Glen, Rose Leslie, Carice Van Houten, Alfie Allen, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, and Isaac Hempstead Wright. New cast this season include Pedro Pascal, »
