Game Of Thrones’ Rose Leslie Joins Vin Diesel in The Last Witch Hunter

14 July 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

She stole our hearts as the Wildling Ygritte on HBO’s brilliant high-fantasy series Game of Thrones, and now British actress Rose Leslie will be bringing her fiery red locks to the big screen – for another action-heavy role, as it turns out. We’ve learned that Leslie will be taking on a lead role in Summit Entertainment’s supernatural action-thriller The Last Witch Hunter, alongside Vin Diesel.

Leslie will play a witch who also serves as a love interest for Diesel’s character, a “semi-immortal witch hunter.” Set in modern-day New York City, The Last Witch Hunter picks up when the hunter is “forced to partner with his natural enemy, a female witch (Leslie). The two must stop a villainous witch queen from obtaining a relic and unleashing plague upon humanity.”

'Once Upon a Time' Season 4 Adds Elizabeth Mitchell in Mystery 'Frozen' Role

8 July 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Elizabeth Mitchell has signed on for a mysterious role in Once Upon a Time's new Frozen story line that will be featured in Season 4.

While details regarding her character have not been confirmed, Elizabeth Mitchell is believed to be playing a "possibly malevolent" character who has ties to both sisters Anna (Elizabeth Lail) and Elsa (Georgina Haig). She will also have connections to both Once Upon a Time's Storybrooke setting and Frozen's Arendelle. The events of Once Upon a Time's Season 4 story line will take place after the events depicted in Disney's Frozen.

Along with Georgina Haig, who joined the cast last week, and Elizabeth Lail, Scott Michael Foster is playing Anna's beau Kristoff, who is still getting used to life in the castle after a life spent outdoors.

Series creators and executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz hinted last month that other Frozen characters would be popping »

'Once Upon a Time' Season 4 Casts 'Frozen' Characters Anna and Kristoff

1 July 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, during Once Upon a Time's Season 3 finale, the show teased that Elsa from the hit Disney animated movie Frozen will be coming to Storybrooke in Season 4. While Elsa still has not been cast yet, a new report from TV Line reveals that the ABC series has cast newcomer Elizabeth Lail as Elsa's sister Anna, while Scott Michael Foster will portray Anna's beau Kristoff in the new season.

The Once Upon a Time version of Anna, who was originally voiced by Kristen Bell in Frozen, is described as, "a fun-loving fearless optimist" who often gets in over her head, but has the ability to overcome obstacles due to her rescourceful nature. She also values her sister's relationship over everything else. Kristoff, portrayed by Jonathan Groff in the Disney animated movie, has a hearty and sometimes gruff demeanor, although his love for Anna and her sister Elsa often cannot be hidden underneath his manly persona. »

Trailer for The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby with McAvoy and Chastain

30 June 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got a great trailer to share with you today for James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain's romantic drama The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. This movie is going to tug at the audience's emotional strings. The story centers on "a couple trying to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone."

This was originally shot as two separate movies, one focusing on the boy, the other focusing on the girl. Each would have told the same story, but it would have been from different perspectives. The version that's being released is a combination of the two. I like the ambition behind the original idea, and I hope one day we get to see those, but this looks like it will be a solid story about love.

The movie also stars Bill Hader, William Hurt, Viola Davis, »

First Trailer For The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby

29 June 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Once upon a time there were two versions of The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: one from a “His” point of view, focusing on Conor (James McAvoy) and “Hers”, following Eleanor (Jessica Chastain). For this year’s Cannes film festival and now the drama’s release, the films have been combined into one, “Them” version, and the first trailer is online via Yahoo.Eleanor Rigby traces the early courtship of Chastain’s title character and McAvoy’s charmer, their bright and consuming love and the tragedy that drives a wedge between them, resulting in Eleanor attempting suicide early in the film. They then have to pick up the pieces of their lives and their relationship.We saw the combined film at Cannes and liked it, with some reservations, but it would still be interesting to have all three cuts for comparison. Perhaps the home entertainment release will provide that satisfaction. »

Watch: 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' Trailer Starring James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain

27 June 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Weinstein Co. has released the first trailer for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, a film that had its premiere in two parts -- Him and Her -- at the Toronto Film Festival last year, but has now been cut into one film that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this past May to very, very high marks. Starring James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain, the film is set for a September 26 release, which suggests it just might have a second Tiff showing, telling the story of a relationship in the beautifully relatable portrait of love, empathy and truth. Once happily married, Conor (McAvoy) and Eleanor (Chastain) suddenly find themselves as strangers longing to understand each other in the wake of tragedy. The film explores the couple's story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone. »

Chastain & McAvoy Star in 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' Trailer

27 June 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Everyone starts out thinking this is forever..." TWC has unveiled a trailer for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, being released this fall in the combined form (aka "Them"). The film, starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy as lovers rekindling, was originally shot as two separate movies - one for "Him" and "Her". Each one told the same story from each perspective, but this version brings everything together and it's solid, a very moving and authentic film about love. In addition to Chastain & McAvoy, the film features Bill Hader, William Hurt, Viola Davis, Isabelle Huppert, Jess Weixler and Ciarán Hinds. As much as this may be a hard sell, it is really a lovely film, worth looking into and experiencing. Here's the first official trailer for Ned Benson's The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, from Yahoo: The story of a couple trying to reclaim the life and love they once knew »

The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby Trailer: Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy Lead an Unconventional Love Story

27 June 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Weinstein Company has released the first The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby trailer for writer/director Ned Benson’s ambitious love story drama.  The film focuses on the entirety of a relationship between two people, played by Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy.  As glimpsed in this trailer, the film was actually crafted as two separate movies: Her and Him.  One told the story from Chastain’s point of view, and the other from McAvoy’s point of view, but then Benson cut together an omniscient version (titled Them), which is the one that will be released first theatrically.  I’m curious to see if the pic works in this single feature version, but this trailer is certainly an excellent start.  The tone is romantic without overdoing it, and the chemistry between Chastain and McAvoy looks swell.  The Weinstein Company plans to release Her and Him in limited release shortly after this initial version opens, »

DVD Review – The Sea (2013)

25 June 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Sea, 2013.

Directed by Stephen Brown.

Starring Ciarán Hinds, Bonnie Wright, Natascha McElhone, Rufus Sewell, Matthew Dillon, Sinéad Cusack, Missy Keating and Charlotte Rampling.

Synopsis:

The story of a man who returns to the sea where he spent his childhood summers in search of peace following the death of his wife.

Ciaran Hinds is a dangerous actor. The 61-year-old Belfast native will quietly disappear into all the bit-parts that come his way, because he’s generous support, and because he never showboats or upstages his fellow performers. But give Hinds a lead and he’ll take charge of the film, no matter how insubstantial the material. That’s why he’s one of Ireland’s best living actors: with Hinds in the lead, a poor film’s flaws can be hidden, or even partially forgiven. And so it goes with The Sea – to an extent – a confused coming-of-age drama/tiresome »

DVD Review: 'The Sea'

★★★★☆The debut feature from Stephen Brown, The Sea (2013) is a compassionate rendering of John Banville's Man Booker Prize-winning novel.

He stays at a boarding house owned by Miss Vavasour (Charlotte Rampling) and shares mealtimes with permanent resident Colonel Blunden (Karl Johnson). He's utterly overwhelmed by grief and shows no signs of healing. "Fleeing one sadness by revisiting the scene of an old one doesn't work," he tells his landlady. Max is an art historian and is supposed to be writing about French artist Pierre Bonnard.

Game of Thrones Season Four – Episode 10 Review

17 June 2014 4:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the tenth episode of Game of Thrones Season Four….

The Children. Directed by Alex Graves. Written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.  

Jon

After his episode-length edition last week, Season 4′s climactic installment opened with Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and followed on from where he was last left: venturing beyond the Wall to negotiate with the Wildling ‘King.’ Their tense scene together is amplified by persistent cutaways – a close-up of a knife, a suspicious glare at potentially poisoned wine. But Mance Ryder (Ciarán Hinds) isn’t going to kill Snow, and neither is his 100,000-strong army here to attack the Wall; he just wants to hide behind its towering ice. The King Beyond the Wall echoes what the Starks have been saying since the show’s very first episode: Winter is coming. There’s a season before the chilly(er) period, though – Stannis Season, Baby!

16 June 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Massive Game of Thrones season 4 spoilers follow…

HBO delivered another superb finale to what has arguably been the best season of Game of Thrones yet on Sunday night with ‘The Children’, and now they’ve followed it up with a selection of video featurettes, including George R.R. Martin explaining Stannis’ (Stephen Dillane) decision to attack Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds) and his Wildling army, a behind-the-scenes look at the fight between Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and The Hound (Rory McCann), and showrunners Daniel Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ ‘Inside the Episode’…

 

 

 

And to help kill some time until the fifth season (which is a whole ten months away!), HBO has also dropped a couple of clips from the finale featuring Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) escape and Brienne’s encounter with Arya (Maisie Williams)…

Goodnight, Sweet Prostitute: 'The Children,' 'Game of Thrones' Season 4 Episode 10 As Told Through Photos

16 June 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last night's season finale of "Game of Thrones" might not have been earth-shattering the way, say, the Red Wedding was. But it did wrap up many storylines, sometimes in the worst ways possible. Our recap/review has already analyzed what these moments mean for the series as a whole, but in case you want a visual sense of how each dramatic beat played out, or need photos to remember who exactly everyone is, check this out.  [Spoilers follow.] It wouldn't be a tale of epic fantasy without at least five minutes worth of a guy walking through some bleak landscape! After last week's battle against the Free Folk, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) goes north to have a chit-chat with Mance Rayder (Ciarin Hinds) about maybe ending all the battle-ing. They actually have a pretty nice time toasting their dead friends! At least until... ...These party-crashers show up. Yeah, Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) is now in the North, »

“Game of Thrones”: And Now Our Watch Has Ended

16 June 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Sooooooooo what the eff just happened? Skeleton armies, whore murders (their words, not mine), patricide, fireball-shooting children and the Perils of Brienne were Not how I expected this season of Game of Thrones to end. Not that I’m complaining mind you.

Let’s dig in!

Jon.

Snow.

And lots of it, past the Wall. And lots of dead Free Folk and a giant with crows on it. Jon (Kit Harington) goes into the woods and lets himself get taken hostage so that he can meet with Mance (Ciaran Hinds), who is conveniently in the first tent he comes across. “I’ve been sent to negotiate with you.” They toast to Ygritte, and then to Grenn and the dead giants. Jon chokes on his soymilk. It’s kind of adorable. He also lays it all out on the table with Mance, who follows suit by admitting that right now, at this moment, »

Win The Sea on DVD

16 June 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To celebrate the DVD release of The Sea on 23rd June, we’re giving away a DVD of the film to three lucky winners.

Art historian Max Morden (Ciarán HindsMunich, Rome) returns to the sleepy seaside resort where he spent summers as a child after losing his wife (Sinéad Cusack – winner of Best Supporting Actress at IFTAs). Max lodges at a boarding house he once frequented, where frosty proprietor Miss Vavasour (Charlotte RamplingThe Verdict, The Duchess), and eccentric resident Blunden (Karl JohnsonThe Illusionist, Rome), now reside. Before long – and despite protestations from his daughter Clare (Ruth BradleyGrabbers, Primeval) – Max revisits the ghosts of his past.

Based on the Man Booker prize-winning novel by John Banville, The Sea is a haunting, uplifting, meditation on the human condition – at times elegiac, poetic, and nostalgic. A story of memory, love, loss, regret… and the persistent possibility of rebirth.

‘Game of Thrones’ Finale Caps Off a Season of Milestones (Spoilers)

15 June 2014 11:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a year punctuated by creative highs and gaudy ratings milestones, “Game of Thrones” capped off its fourth season in first-rate fashion, based on the show’s own metric of just how many “Holy crap” moments it delivered.

After a penultimate episode that again seemed to break the piggy bank in terms of sweeping action sequences, the finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) opened with another.

Nevertheless, the real show-stopping exchanges occurred later in the hour. Those included the brutal yet wholly satisfying fight between Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and the Hound (Rory McCann), as well as the latter’s closing scene with Arya (Maisie Williams), with virtually every scene between those two having consistently yielded some of the season’s finest (and disarmingly, funniest) moments.

Ditto for the relationship between the Lannister brothers, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), a beacon of warmth in a series »

‘Game of Thrones’ Season Four Finale Review: ‘The Children’ Give Us Hope

15 June 2014 10:35 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said this past week that their season four finale was their finest yet, it was easy to disregard at the time. Of course they thought it was their best, as any creator might. Little did we know at the time that they were absolutely correct. Season four’s final frame wasn’t just the end of a long, bloody and brilliant season of television. It also serves as an unexpectedly hopeful and wondrous start to the next chapter. When does season five start, again? “The Children” picks up immediately where “The Watchers on The Wall” left off, with Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) heading out alone to offer peace to Mance Rayder (an ever-grizzled Ciaran Hinds). Within minutes the episode pulls back, showing us a massive army coming down hard on the Wildling army. In rides King Stannis, heroic as he’ll probably ever be. It »
