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? »

If you've been a reader of this site, you'll know that one composer who has caught our ear in a big way is Jóhann Jóhannsson. Over the past few years, his profile has risen with work on several films including So Yong Kim's "For Ellen" and Lou Ye's "Mystery," before landing last year in multiplexes across the country with his haunting, gorgeous work on Denis Villeneuve's "Prisoners." And with 2014 upon us, Jóhannsson is back with more music to capture our attention. The Icelandic composer has tuned up the forthcoming drama "McCanick" from director John C. Waller, editor Brett Bachman and cinematographer Martin Ahlgren. Featuring "Glee" star Cory Monteith in his last role along with David Morse, Ciarin Hinds and Mike Vogel, the film tells the story of a narcotics detective and a seemingly harmless ex-prisoner who clash over the course of one long, hot summer day.

It seems that year on year the quality of television just keeps getting better, and 2014 promises to be no exception.
The hotly anticipated fourth series of Game of Thrones is scheduled to premiere on April 6th. With a star cast including Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and Ciaran Hinds, this series has the potential to be the best one yet. The third book of the Game of Thrones series has been split into two seasons (seasons 3 and 4), so this season should answer all those questions that fans were left asking after the pulsating end to series three. Will we see more White Walkers? Will the Starks avenge Rob’s death? All will, we hope, be answered. And if that isn’t enough, the show features dragons. Yes: fire-breathing dragons.
It’s a bumper year for sport as well! The world famous Grand National gets underway on April 5th, but that’s »

Rodrigo García has long been a well-respected name in the television industry, helming pilots for such successful shows like Carnivàle, Big Love and Six Degrees. In recent years, however, he’s also been gaining more credibility as a Hollywood director, thanks to the success of his films Mother and Child and Albert Nobbs, the latter of which Glenn Close and Janet McTeer both earned Oscar nominations for.
His next project certainly sounds like an intriguing challenge: an indie drama called Last Days in the Desert, about a holy man and a demon journeying through the desert together. Continuing the streak of good luck in casting that began with Albert Nobbs, García has snagged A-lister Ewan McGregor to lead the film.
McGregor will star as both the holy man and the demon, the pair of whom face questions about their fate after encountering a family clinging to life in the brutal heat of the desert. »

Despite appearing in the lackluster hopeful blockbuster Jack the Giant Slayer, the fantastic Ewan McGregor has had quite a great run on the big screen. Perfect Sense, The Impossible, Beginners and last year's August: Osage County have seen some great performances from the actor. Soon he'll be seen alongside Johnny Depp in Mortdecai and the once troubled western Jane Got a Gun, and now he's lined up another promising project with Last Days in the Desert, a new project from Albert Nobbs director Rodrigo Garcia that will team McGregor up with David Gordon Green's Joe star Tye Sheridan. Read on! Deadline says the story will see McGregor playing a holy man and a demon who must confront his own fate after an encounter with a family struggling to survive in the harsh desert environment. Sheridan is likely part of the family along with Ciarán Hinds and Ayelet Zurer. Garcia »

Ewan McGregor has signed on to star in "Last Days in the Desert," written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia ("Albert Nobbs"). He'll actually be doing double duty: McGregor will play both a holy man and a demon, who together are journeying through a desert when they discover a family in dire circumstances. Also (!), recent Asc winner Emmanuel Lubezki is set to shoot the film. Yup, we're on board. This is a reuniting for Garcia and Lubezki, who many years ago made "Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her," the Cannes Un Certain Regard winner in 2000.

Tye Sheridan ("Mud," "The Tree of Life") has also been announced to star, as the child of the desert family.
