‘Game of Thrones’ Movers and Shakers: 9 Characters to Watch in Season 5

12 April 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If there’s one thing HBO’s “Game of Thrones” isn’t lacking in, it’s characters — thanks to author George R.R. Martin and his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series of novels. While figures like Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targeryan (Emilia Clarke) will remain strong central characters, there’s plenty of room in Martin’s sprawling fantasy universe for other characters to expand their roles and make more of a mark. Last season, Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) came out of nowhere to steal the show, for instance. »

Game of Thrones Season 5 Cheat Sheet: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Deaths, Dragons and Turncoats

10 April 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Game of Thrones Season 5 begins this Sunday 12th April for those in the States, and in the UK the night after. We’ve come a long way since first meeting the Starks (survival rate: 5 out of 8) all the way back in Winterfell, a place now reduced to embers in the shows Sim City opening credits. New characters have been introduced. Those new characters have gone onto die. A lot’s happened.

With multiple main storylines, many interweaving subplots and each character going by at least four different names, the show can be difficult to follow at times, especially after a nine month break after Season 4 first aired last year. Here’s a character-by-character summary of the main players.

We begin with those unlucky Starks:

Arya Stark

Arya (Maisie Williams) has found herself become arguably Game of Thrones’ best character. Through season 2’s many duologue scenes with Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) in Harrenhal, »

2 'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Clips: Tyrion Confronts Varys

18 March 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 (Ciar&#225n Hinds) about pride. This clip also references that Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and his »

Matt Damon And Andy Lau Will Save The World In Zhang Yimou's The Great Wall

12 March 2015 5:41 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Chinese blockbuster director Zhang Yimou is no stranger to casting Hollywood A-listers in his projects since wooing Christian Bale for his 2011 epic The Flowers of War. While that film made huge bank in China, it failed to make the desired impact overseas. Zhang is hoping that his latest opus, The Great Wall, will do better internationally, packing it with stars from home and abroad.Matt Damon and Andy Lau head an all-star cast that also includes Willem Dafoe and Games of Thrones scene-stealer Pedro Pascal, as well as Chinese star performers Zhang Hanyu (The Taking of Tiger Mountain), Eddie Peng (Unbeatable, Rise of the Legend), Jing Tian (Special ID, From Vegas To Macau), boy band idol Lu Han and a host of others, including Lin Gengxin,...

Matt Damon Signed On For Epic Chinese Fantasy!

12 March 2015 2:48 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Matt Damon has joined the cast of The Great Wall, a Chinese-set adventure with Willem Dafoe, Andy Lau and Pedro Pascal already on board. The film has been lingering in development limbo for a little while, but seems to be gaining some traction now. Zhang Yimou is directing, so expect it to look gorgeous. The story sees a group of 15th century soldiers searching for gunpowder and stumbling across the titular wall mid-build. They get more than they bargained for though, when they learn that it's not to keep just invaders out, but mythical creatures too. While I would normally be skeptical about something that sounds like it could spiral into a CGI mess, the pedigree attached to this bodes very well. Yimou knows how to do large-scale, beautiful looking movies, and Damon has a knack for picking great roles, so for now, colour us excited for The Great Wall. »

Damon & Dafoe Join Full Cast For Zhang Yimou’s ‘The Great Wall’

11 March 2015 10:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

China is certainly where the money is these days. With an ever expanding box-office take each year, and more and more foreign films being allowed a release, it’s no wonder that Hollywood and the big studios want a piece of the pie. Unfortunately this has lead to a lot of needless pandering, such as Chinese exclusive scenes in Iron Man 3 and lots of behind kissing in Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Legendary, the studio behind the likes of Pacific Rim and Godzilla, look to be taking a more organic approach with The Great Wall, an American/Chinese co-production with Universal Pictures, China Film Co. Ltd., and Le Vision Pictures.

The film, directed by the incredible Zhang Yimou, sees humanity making a last stand on the titular wonder of the world against mythical monsters in 15th Century China. Yimou is most famous for his wuxia films, Hero and House Of Flying Daggers. »

Matt Damon Is Going To China To Film An Epic Movie Involving The Great Wall

11 March 2015 8:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Hollywood has spent the last years working to make a big blockbuster about the incredible monument known as the Great Wall of China - the project simply titled The Great Wall - and today the movie finally took a major step forward. This is because the Zhang Yimou-directed film has announced its full cast, which is headed up by Matt Damon, Willem Dafoe and Game of Thrones' Pedro Pascal. Legendary Pictures officially announced the new cast for the film via press release, though it seems for now that they are trying to keep most details about The Great Wall's plot a secret. As it stands, the only description of the story that is provided says that it will be about "an elite force making a last stand for humanity on the world.s most iconic structure." Sadly, there's also no mention of what genre the movie will fall into, »

Matt Damon Scales The Great Wall

11 March 2015 5:49 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If you cast your mind back to last September, you might recall that Matt Damon was considering starring in China-set epic The Great Wall. The film, which has had some development difficulties, has now caught a break as Damon is on board alongside Willem Dafoe, Pedro Pascal, Andy Lau, Jing Tian, Zhang Hanyu, Eddie Peng, Lu Han, Lin Gengxin, Zheng Kai, Chen Xuedong, Huang Xuan and Wang Junkai. Zhang Yimou is directing this one, which finds soldiers in 15th century China searching for gunpowder and discovering much more. But though they initially think that the wall, still under construction, is the most amazing thing they’ll encounter, that’s only the start of it – as the structure is being put in place not to just keep out invaders, but also mystical creatures. Legendary boss Thomas Tull conceived the initial idea as part of a plan to push into global co-productions with his Legendary East arm. »
