Before the Emmys began last Sunday, and with “Game of Thrones” coming around the last corner toward its finale, a couple of the show’s stars hinted at what’s to come… including a rather cryptic reveal.
“It’s quite sad. It really feels like things are wrapping up and coming to an end,” Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, said about heading into the shorter Season 7. “People are hanging around Belfast a bit longer to be around each other and be in each other’s presence.”
When reminded that there would be an eighth season, Turner dropped a cryptic message about the well-being of some of the main characters.
“We’ve got one more season…well, not all of us.”

Nobody had as much fun at the Emmys as Leslie Jones. The Saturday Night Live star took to the Emmys stage to poke fun at her recent hacking drama and then continued having the time of her life at the after parties where she met her favorite people: the Game of Thrones cast. "Ok I seriously met everyone I watch in television it's f--king cray. Now y'all know how much I love Got! Well...," she tweeted along with photos with Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, Gwendoline Christie, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. She then turned her attention to Emmy nominee Emilia Clarke. "Wait...Oueen Of Dragons Yall!! And literally one of the nicest people I ever met. She didn't care I »
Paris — Erik Poppe’s “The King’s Choice” is set to represent Norway in the race for foreign-language-film Oscar nominations.
Written by Norwegian writers Jan Trygve Røyneland and Harald Rosenløw Eeg, “The King’s Choice” is set during the German invasion of Norway in 1940. The historical drama stars Danish actor Jesper Christensen as King Haakon VII, who refused to surrender to the Germans at all costs.
“‘The King’s Choice’ tells of a dramatic event for us as a nation, but also examines a part of history that affected large parts of the world. With its engaging themes and strong cinematic qualities I am sure we have a great candidate in the race,” said Sindre Guldvog, who chairs the Oscar committee and heads the Norwegian Film Institute.
“The King’s Choice” was produced by Finn Gjerdrum and Stein B Kvae. Nordisk Film Distribusjon will handle the release on Sep. 23. Beta Cinema is handling international sales. »

Let's face it, the wait for season seven of Game Of Thrones is going to be excruciating. Not only will it take longer than usual- with the show arriving midsummer instead of in its usual early spring window- but when it finally does come back, we know it's going to be a shorter-than-usual season. When you combine that with the explosive season finale we witnessed earlier this year you end up with a lot of chewed-up fingernails.
A new rumor making the rounds should help get the juices flowing, though, and give you something to think about while you wait for Game Of Thrones to return.
*Warning: If True, These Rumors Are Spoilerific!*
Back in season three, the writers of Game Of Thrones who, at the time, were working off of the books by George R. R. Martin, posed a very intriguing question. If what I'm about to share with you is true, »

While Will Smith has tackled a broad range of roles outside of his action-comedy bread and butter, it appears that the upcoming Collateral Beauty might just push him into intriguing new pathological territory. The star-studded ensemble dramatic comedy shows Smith as a tragic figure addled by grief who, in an almost Dickensian manner, receives some tough love by way of the powerful personifications of Death, Time and Love… at least, so we are made to believe.
The Collateral Beauty teaser trailer has just dropped, with Will Smith as Howard Inlet, a successful, formerly extroverted New York advertising executive who has seemingly detached from his work and friends in the aftermath of an apparent tragedy that took the life of his daughter. Retreating into his own mind, Howard has »
Following their report that Gangs of New York and Brooklyn actor Jim Broadbent will be joining the Game of Thrones cast in a key role, Entertainment Weekly has now confirmed that production has officially begun on the seventh season of the hit HBO show.
Filming actually commenced on Monday in Northern Ireland, one of the show’s primary shooting locations, but over the next few months, production will be taking the cast and crew to Spain and Iceland as well.
Instead of a usual March or April release date, the penultimate season will premiere sometime during the summer of 2016; it will consist of seven episodes, rather than the ten fans have come to expect.
Most of the characters who survived the events of season six will be returning, including Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and more. »

“Dark Night,” which premiered at Sundance in January, will screen at the Venice Intl. Film Festival. The film focuses on the lives of six strangers intersecting at a suburban multiplex where a massacre occurs.
“Donnybrook,” the first novel from Frank Bill, follows two men as they try to get to the Donnybrook — a legendary backwoods bare knuckle brawl where the winner gets $100,000. Bill is the author of the short-story collection “Crimes in Southern Indiana.”
Sutton’s previous films include “Memphis” and “Pavilion.”
“I was knocked out when I read ‘Donnybrook,’ the most raw, out of control, nasty piece of business I have ever come across,” said Rumble Films topper David Lancaster. “It fits perfectly within the signature films that Tim has made culminating with the powerful ‘Dark Night. »

In 2012, Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen’s Danish comedy “Klown,” based on their Danish TV sitcom of the same name, had its U.S. premiere at Fantastic Fest, where it won Best Picture and Best Screenplay in the comedy category. The film follows Frank (Hvam) who kidnaps his pregnant girlfriend’s 12-year-old nephew and takes him on a debauched canoe trip with his best friend Casper (Christensen). It received critical acclaim for its “Curb Your Enthusiasm”-esque cringe comedy and its raunchy set pieces.
Now, Hvam and Christensen have returned for the film’s sequel, “Klown Forever,” in which the two now-estranged friends travel to Hollywood to seek fame and fortune, only to dive into more wildly inappropriate misadventures and mortifying social situations. It features appearances from Isla Fisher (“Wedding Crashers »

Meta-sitcoms starring famous comedians as exaggerated versions of themselves aren’t unique to America. Nor, for that matter, are bad dads. Both feature prominently in Klown Forever, the sequel to 2010’s most outrageous comedy about kidnapping your girlfriend’s 12-year-old nephew and taking him along on an adultery road trip. Based on a popular Danish TV series, the Klown movies star comedy duo Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam as filthy-minded parodies of themselves.
In their new movie, Casper decides to move from Copenhagen to Los Angeles, leaving his old friend and comedy partner behind. Feeling betrayed and rejected, Frank takes the news hard—so much so that he somehow manages to be even more neglectful of his infant son than usual during a swimming class.

The It remake is coming. We might only have a few spare details about the film and it might be over a year away, but somewhere off in the distance, Pennywise the Clown lurks. Between the literary masterpiece that Stephen King published in 1986 and the miniseries adaptation from 1990, the It remake has a lot stacked against it. Even so, it's got a few advantages on its side. How will the newest iteration align with the original book? How will it stack up to the original and the indomitable Tim Curry? We've compiled a short list of reasons it could really do both justice - and even become one of the most chilling horror movies of 2017. The updated Pennywise is creepier than ever. In August, Entertainment Weekly gave us a full look at the new Pennywise. He's obscured by shadow and looks like a darker, more sinister version of the demonic clown. »

Klown Forever follows estranged best friends Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam as they travel to the States seeking fame, fortune and friendship. Only, they immediately dive head-first into an impressive array of wildly inappropriate misadventures. Soon, they are emerged in an unforgettably mortifying social situations they can't easily get themselves out of.
When Casper attempts to break into Hollywood, Frank follows him to Los Angeles, seeing an opportunity to salvage their strained relationship. As the guys come face-to-face with a number of La's denizens, including Isla Fisher, Adam Levine and Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, it's clear that they're equally ready and willing to take on Hollywood. But is Hollywood prepared for Casper and Frank?
A reunion with Klown director Mikkel Nørgaard, Klown Forever sees the series, best described as Curb Your Enthusiasm as directed by Lars von Trier, reach ingenious new heights. And it stoops to gut-wrenchingly hilarious lows. »
It’s hard to believe it’s already been over a half-a-decade since the Danish dark comedy Klown was first released. After enjoying a festival run and release here — in which it rightfully earned acclaim for its Curb Your Enthusiasm-esque awkwardness and depravity — the duo have returned. Klown Forever, a follow-up from the original team of director Mikkel Nørgaard and writers / stars Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen, will be released this fall and the U.S. trailer has now landed.
As we said in our review, “Those familiar with the off-kilter comedic duo behind the Danish TV series Klown (or Klovn as it is known in Denmark) — which spurned one of the most hilarious and inappropriate feature films of recent years — will know exactly what type of humor to expect from their sequel Klovn Forever. Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen star essentially as parodies of themselves in this Curb Your Enthusiasm-style comedy, »

In 2010, Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen took their long-running Danish comedy “Klown” and brought it to the big screen with director Mikkel Nørgaard. Similar to Larry David’s successful HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Klown starred the duo as fictionalized versions of themselves and centered around their increasingly awkward shenanigans and encounters within the Danish entertainment scene (Hvam played a former popular comic and Christensen was his best friend).

Fortunately, the duo are coming to America in the sequel, “Klown Forever.” Still seeking fame, fortune and friendship, the pair arrive in the states to take on Hollywood and they come face-to-face with some of its biggest starts, from Adam Levine to Isla Fisher and “Game of Thrones’” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Will their attempts to find American success pay off? Probably not, and as the new trailer indicates, »

32 years ago today, the acting debut of a music icon we lost this year opened in theaters. Audiences were first treated to Purple Rain on July 27, 1984. Purple Rain proved that Prince could be just as captivating in a feature-length film as he was onstage and in music videos. The rock musical debuted a month after the album of the same name hit record stores, giving us such hits as “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” and “I Would Die 4 U.” Other notable July 27 happenings in pop culture history; • 1940: Bugs Bunny made his official debut at a screening of the short film A Wild Hare. • 1979: The Amityville Horror opened in theaters. • 1982: Little Shop of Horrors had its Off-Broadway opening at the Orpheum Theatre. The writing team behind the wacky musical, Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, went on to write some of Disney Animation’s most beloved songs. »
