Not long after we saw Anna Kendrick star in a teaser for a female-led remake of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, we have some more amusing fun being teased for Red Nose Day. For those who don’t know, Red Nose Day is a comedy fundraiser that started in the United Kingdom and is making […]

Who knew Chris Martin was so passionate about Game of Thrones? The Coldplay frontman participated in a sketch for Red Nose Day, in which he recruits Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington, and nearly the entire cast of Game of Thrones for a musical. It sounds like a terrible idea, especially with Emilia Clarke on tap to sing a song called "Rastafarian Targaryen," but it's endlessly entertaining. We actually already got a clip of Peter Dinklage's contribution, but it makes a lot more sense within the context. Take a look! »
Last night was Red Nose Day, a star-studded program to help raise money for various charitable organization. There were plenty of good sketches and bits, but one that deserves special attention is Game of Thrones: The Musical. The sketch is done in the style of a behind-the-scenes documentary complete with narration from Liam Neeson. I’m not sure if the joke is that Coldplay is awful and any musical they did would be bad, or if a musical based on Game of Thrones would be bad. I think it’s the latter, but it’s really tough to tell. But overall, the sketch does a good job of blending the mockumentary style with references to the show. Watch Game of Thrones: The Musical below, and click here to donate to Red Nose Day. Here's more on the charities you'll be helping when you donate [via the press release]: The money raised »

"George R.R. Martin meets Chris Martin — what could go wrong?" asks Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) in "Game of Thrones: The Musical," a comedy video in which Coldplay attempt to adapt HBO's epic fantasy-drama for the Broadway stage. The results, as expected, are disastrous.
As the start of the clip, recorded for the fundraising event Red Nose Day, narrator Liam Neeson tells us that Coldplay are "secretly working" on their Thrones musical. The band begins to flesh out 16 ridiculous songs – from the reggae-tinted "Rastafarian Targaryen" to the Coldplay-sounding "Closer »
Last night, NBC aired a live special to raise money for Red Nose Day to help children around the world. Pretty much every celebrity you can think of was part of the show -- since "Do You Want to Help Save Children?" is a strong pitch. You can head to NBC's site to see the full episode and learn how you can get involved with donations, but here are five video highlights:
"Indiana Jones with Anna Kendrick"
As this video's intro states, "After the excitement surrounding the all-female 'Ghostbusters' reboot, Hollywood is now remaking hundreds of classic films with female leads." Cue Anna Kendrick in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." We see her in the pivotal scene where she has to choose the right grail cup ... and maybe choose a few more to take home and decorate her house. "Game of Thrones, Coldplay's New Musical"

As part of NBC's inaugural Red Nose Day telethon (you can watch highlights from the charity festivities here and donate to help children living in poverty here), Coldplay unveiled its full, unfortunately fake Game of Thrones "musical," a.k.a. the greatest rock opera of all time. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau sings a romantic ballad about incest, Peter Dinklage brags about his longevity, Khaleesi goes Rastafarian, and there's even a fun, gruesomely rhyming number dedicated to the Red Wedding. What more do you need? "Bang, curtains, Tony Award." Agreed. Make it happen, Martins. »

“Do something funny for money” was the slogan of NBC’s inaugural “Red Nose Day” telecast, a live three-hour show that helped raise more than $21 million to aid children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad.
The telecast that originated Thursday from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom went off with only a few minor hitches that were probably not visible to the viewing audience at home.
Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski each hosted an hour of the program that blended pitches from stars such as Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde and Gwenyth Paltrow with taped comedy segments produced by Funny or Die and in-studio bits from “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost, Michael Che and Jay Pharaoh, as well as Billy Eichner and Josh Groban.
In between the entertainment, short films featuring celebrity appeals on behalf of specific causes struck a serious note. Jack Black traveled »

If you think Tyrion has swagger, wait until you see Peter Dinklage himself singing about all the deaths on Game of Thrones. It's essentially an ode to the fact that Tyrion has remained alive all this time, while Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon, and King Joffrey have all perished. The skit, made for Red Nose Day, is sure to make any Game of Thrones fan laugh . . . then weep for all the characters we've lost. »
The HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones has, over the course of its run, garnered a reputation for numerous key characters dying or being killed off, despite their apparent importance to the narrative. While this is a storytelling aspect the show shares with its source material, the A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy book series from novelist George R.R. Martin, it has nonetheless become one of the more identifiable aspects of the series since its first season.
One character who has survived, however, is Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage. As part of the promotion for NBC’s charity event Red Nose Day, Dinklage has now sung a song boasting about Tyrion’s continued survival in the series despite the death of other characters that fans had similarly gotten attached to. NBC has also released a video showing the cast of Game of Thrones practicing for a musical version of the series with Coldplay. »

When intergalactic aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), now a home theater installer, to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage & Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Michelle Monaghan plays the team's unique weapons specialist. Directed by Chris Columbus, Pixels stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, and Michelle Monaghan, and is set to be released on July 24th. What do you think of this first clip? »

There's definitely something fun about the idea of aliens attacking Earth using gigantic, evil versions of the classic arcade game characters we know and love, but Sony just unveiled the very first Pixels clip in honor of Pac-Man's 35th anniversary and, well, it's just not very funny. There's definitely something clever about the whole Mini Cooper/ghost idea, but the father-son relationship between Pac-Man and his creator, Tōru Iwatani (Denis Akiyama), is a little too bizarre and isn't particularly funny either. Check out the first Pixels clip for yourself below. The film stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan and Brian Cox, and is due in theaters on July 24th. Here's the official synopsis for Pixels: As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands »

Red Nose Day, a comedy special that’s been in the U.K. since the late 1980s, and this year it will be coming to the U.S. for a primetime special on NBC airing on Thursday, May 21st at 8pm Est. Judging by the press release, it will feature every popular entertainer alive. Among them will be the Game of Thrones cast, who will be putting together Game of Thrones: The Musical with the help of Coldplay. This puts people in a difficult position: Will their love of Game of Thrones outweigh their hatred for Coldplay? Personally, I just hope it’s funny, and a Game of Thrones musical has the potential to be really good or fall flat. For example, here’s Peter Dinklage using all of his charisma to get laughs from a song about characters who have died on the show thus far: So….yeah. »

Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.
Directed by Jeremy Podeswa.
Written by Bryan Cogman.
Game of Thrones season five is now over half way through…yet, Barristan Selmy aside, there have been no major deaths or overly shocking twists. Events have been much more subdued, the writers instead focusing on Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen) and Cersei’s (Lena Headey) political maneuvering. But wait…what’s that coming over the hill? It’s a wedding! Which, as seasoned fans know, is Martin-speak for ‘all your favourite characters are about to die’.
But something else happens instead.
Sansa (Sophie Turner) marries Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) in a ghostly nighttime wedding in Winterfell’s Godswood, and everyone survives. The ceremony goes off without a single flaying. The honeymoon, though…that’s where Season Five’s preference for unsettling psychological moments over shocking twists comes in. »

America is getting a Red Nose Day of its own this year, and as part of the charity festivities, Coldplay wrote Peter Dinklage a spoiler-filled song about the characters who've died on Game of Thrones. (In Westeros, this song is as hated as "We Didn't Start the Fire.") The video below is just a teaser — the full version is expected to include every character Got has ever killed off, and will be 17 hours long. »

Tyrion Lannister is “still going strong.” That was the main takeaway from a new teaser for “Game of Thrones: The Musical,” a special performance by Coldplay featuring Peter Dinklage that will be part of NBC’s “Red Nose Day” event to raise money for children living in poverty. In the teaser, Dinklage rocks the mic as he reminds us of the characters that have died while Tyrion keeps right on playing the “Game of Thrones.” “Remember Ned Stark? He was a lot of fun/But he didn’t make it past season one,” Dinklage sings. See photos: 13 of Hollywood's »

Tyrion Lannister is always in some kind of trouble, but he's "still going strong" on "Game of Thrones." Most of the Starks and Baratheons cannot say the same. (Sansa Stark is alive, but it's hard to argue that she's going strong right about now.) Peter Dinklage mocked the dead guys of Westeros in a new video clip to promote Red Nose Day.
Chris Martin's Coldplay teamed up with the "Game of Thrones" cast to produce "Game of Thrones: The Musical," which will air as part of the televised Red Nose Day celebration this Thursday, May 21 at 8 p.m. on NBC. Red Nose Day is fundraiser for children's charities and donations will be accepted during the live telecast, which will feature a ton of celebrities - including (via People), Will Ferrell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Jack Black, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and more.
