Emmy nominees Peter Dinklage and Taylor Schilling are heading to the stage together. The prestige TV dream-team will star in Ivan Turgenev's 19th-century comedy of manners A Month in the Country, starring Schilling as a bored Russian wife named Natalya who falls in love with her son's tutor, much to the annoyance of her unrequited admirer Rakitin (Dinklage). Dinklage's wife, Erica Schmidt, is directing the play, which will run for a month in early 2015 at the East Village's Classic Stage Company. And then it's straight back to TV, right, guys? Promise? »

It's a long way from the bloody battlefields and treacherous medieval courts of Game of Thrones, and from the badass women's prison corridors of Orange Is the New Black. But two stars of those television hits, Peter Dinklage and Taylor Schilling, will spend time together on a quiet Russian estate in A Month in the Country. The Ivan Turgenev comedy of manners, first performed in 1872, will be produced off-Broadway at Classic Stage Company, directed by Dinklage's wife, Erica Schmidt. The play begins performances Jan. 9 at the East Village venue, in a limited engagement scheduled through Feb. 15.

Because it's NBC's turn to air the Primetime Emmy Awards this year, and because the Peacock would understandably rather air its lucrative Sunday night NFL package in September, the ceremony will take place in late August again. And as an added wrinkle, this year's ceremony will actually happen on a Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m., with Seth Meyers hosting. Between now and then, Dan and I will be making our picks for both who should and will win many of the major categories — if you're wagering, keep in mind that Dan tends to be much better at predicting the winners than I am, but also that he was just as flummoxed as I by last year's winners like Jeff Daniels, Merritt Wever and Bobby Cannavale — continuing with our look at the comedy and drama supporting actor categories.

Greetings everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of the WhatCulture.com News Brief. It’s been a bit of a tough week for movie, TV, and entertainment fans, as not only was it a slow news week in general, but we also lost two incredible Hollywood legends. Lauren Bacall and Robin Williams both passed away, and left behind incredible legacies that we’ll talk about a bit later on.
In other news, we have several studios playing Release Date Jamboree and announcing openings for upcoming films and franchise sequels, we have word on the future of Damon Lindelof and HBO’s controversial new series The Leftovers, updates on Marvel’s The Inhumans and DC’s Aquaman, and a glimmer of hope that Michael Bay might finally move on from the moneymaking machines known as the Transformers franchise.
Before we mourn the loss of those who’ve fallen this week, »

When George R. R. Martin is not writing or aiming expletives at the fans who find it appropriate to speculate about his death, he’s probably on the road. After stopping off at San Diego Comic Con last month and with a mini-tour of the UK this month (southern fans can attend an evening with the writer and fellow fantasy scribe, Robin Hobb in London on the 19th of August), Martin is a busy man. Many will be dissatisfied to see he isn’t slaving over The Winds Of Winter, the sixth instalment in A Song Of Ice And Fire (for the reaction just look to Twitter: ‘Lock Yourself Away And Finish The Winds Of Winter, Your Grace’ and ‘I long for the day when »
Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are currently working on the script for Captain America 3, which now has its May 6, 2016 release date all to itself, after Warner Bros. moved their highly-anticipated sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to March 2016.
While the writers wouldn't divulge any plot specifics for the sequel in a new interview with SFX, Christopher Markus teased that he would like to bring Modok into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, at some point. Here's what he had to say, when asked if there were any classic comic book characters they couldn't quite fit in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
"I don't know if there's anybody that we had in the wings that we couldn't pull off. There are people that I'm always wanting to bring in. I want to put Modok into something, but you »
With the Blu-ray/DVD release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier hitting in less than a month, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been talking a great deal about their experience writing the film, as well as how the plot of Winter Soldier came about. Years ago, they mentioned that they wanted Peter Dinklage as Modok in the sequel. Obviously that never came to pass, but they still want to bring him into the mix. Christopher Markus, in regards to how the story started: »

A couple of key release date changes have been announced.
First up, the Adam Sandler and Peter Dinklage-led comedy "Pixels" has been pushed back by two months from May 15th 2015 to July 24th 2015. The Sony film, which was to open against "Mad Max: Fury Road," will now open against the "Poltergeist" remake and comedian Amy Schumer's comedy debut.

Best friends Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler have a new rivalry to look forward to, as the Funny People pair find their two big summer 2015 releases going head-to-head at the box office. Sony Pictures has decided to move their video game comedy Pixels, starring Sandler, right into the path of Amy Schumer's aptly titled Trainwreck, directed by Apatow.
Originally set for release on May 15, 2015, Pixels is getting pushed further into next summer, now landing on the July 24, 2015 weekend, where it will face not only Amy Schumer's big theatrical debut, but also MGM's Poltergeist remake starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris.
Pixels was originally set to open opposite Mad Max: Fury Road, which earned a lot of buzz coming out of Comic-Con this past July, and the musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2, which comes with a diehard built-in audience of Barden Bella faithfuls.
With a great comedic »
The film will premiere on July 24, 2015, where it faces competition from supernatural thriller “Poltergeist” as well as “Trainwreck,” another comedy from Sandler pal, Judd Apatow. “Pixels” had been slated for release on May 15, 2015, when it would have faced off against “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Pitch Perfect 2.”
The film kicks off after aliens misinterpret video-feeds of arcade games as a declaration of war against them, prompting an assault on Earth.
Their attack prompts the president (Kevin James) to enlist his childhood best friend (Sandler) to use the skills he honed as a Reagan-era video game champ to defend the world. Peter Dinklage and Brian Cox co-star.

Sony Pictures previously had the video game adventure comedy Pixels set for release on May 15th, 2015. However, the studio has decided to step out of the way of Mad Max: Fury Road (watch the teaser trailer) and the musical sequel Pitch Perfect 2 and set the Adam Sandler-led comedy for release on July 24th, 2015. The film sees intergalactic aliens misinterpreting the video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them and attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults around the world. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler), now working as a home theater installer, to help defeat them all. It's up to Brenner to lead a team of old-school arcade gamers (including Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Michelle Monaghan »

Earlier today, Sony Pictures moved up the release date for its Brad Pitt-fronted WWII drama Fury, but now the studio's Pixels release date is being pushed back. Originally scheduled for May 15, 2015, director Chris Columbus’ action-adventure pic will now open on July 24, 2015. The film stars Adam Sandler and revolves around a group of 80s arcade game champions who are called upon to help defend earth from alien invaders who have misinterpreted our classic arcade games as a declaration of war. The cast includes Josh Gad, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox, and a mullet-sporting Peter Dinklage, and while we haven’t seen any footage just yet, it actually sounds like one of the most promising Adam Sandler movies in some time. Hit the jump for more on the film and its new release date. No reason is given for the Pixels release date shift, but the move takes the film »

Duking it out in our latest video (watch below) are Rob Licuria, Charles Bright and Ralph Galvan as they analyze the episodes submitted to Emmy judges as examples of their best work from the past TV season.

The X-Men movie franchise has had its fair share of ups and downs but, on the whole, it has been a very successful endeavour for Fox.
Starting way back in the year 2000, along with Blade two years prior, it is generally considered to be the reason that the superhero movie genre is so enormously successful today.
The franchise has turned previously little-known actors like Hugh Jackman in to global superstars and boasts a plethora of top class acting talent that includes, or at least has included, the likes of Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, Brian Cox, Kevin Bacon, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Peter Dinklage.
There have, however, been some fairly terrible errors and some near-misses that threatened to wreck the X-Men as a movie franchise along the way. Had the notoriously hard-to-please comic book movie audiences not been so surprisingly lenient, the franchise »

The good news is that now that all the singing and the farting around is done in Hobbiton and the story has kicked in good and proper, the majority of this second in Peter Jackson’s portrayal of a slim Tolkien story overblown to epic proportions is mostly action with a minimum of plot. It’s still got various story beats it has to hit of course and is very much a middle chapter, but this has a momentum which was really missing from An Unexpected Journey.
In this second Hobbit film you can start to see the stuff that was added in to pad out the two films into a trilogy with characters who do not appear in the books introduced and a weird elf/dwarf romance along with a more angsty and badass Legolas, strangely enough it doesn’t feel out-of-place.
