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? »

Following a matrimonial slaughter, Game of Thrones remerges for a 10 episode fourth season on HBO.
Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact…but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, »
After we dug into what will happen in "Game of Thrones" Season 4's first four episode based on their titles, now HBO has released their official synopses.
First up, here is how HBO describes Season 4 in a press release:
"Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters' hold on the Iron Throne remains intact ... but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing 'Red Viper of Dorne,' arrives at King's Landing to attend Joffrey's wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night's Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder's army of wildlings, »
Ever since breaking out in the states in "300," Lena Headey has been lighting up the small and silver screen playing strong, iconic women.
Over 20 years ago, Headey's film career was jump-started by a chance encounter at the Royal National Theatre in high school. Today, the actress plays character-you-love-to-hate Cersei Lannister in the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones," but, this Friday, the actress will return to theaters as the popular warrior queen for another go-round in "300: Rise of an Empire."
From hilarious fan encounters to her love of horror films, here are 15 things you probably don't know about Lena Headey.
1. Headey was born in Bermuda, where her father -- a Yorkshire police cadet -- was stationed. She grew up on the island country before her family moved back to Huddersfield, Yorkshire, when she was five.

Joe Lynch does a great job aesthetically. And he yanks sound performances from an experienced and comfortable lot of thespians. The pics editing is impressive and the production sports a generally clean appealing look to it. Again theres success to be found most certainly. But the comedy sputters time and again. Neither Steve Zahn nor Peter Dinklage (the two strongest comedians attached for my money) can prevent the vessel from taking on water. »
Back in October we brought you the news that Peter Dinklage had signed up for a Bad Santa-like "R-rated leprechaun comedy". At the time the Paramount project was untitled and didn't have a director in place, but both those issues have now been rectified. The film is called O' Lucky Day, and the director will be Lawrence Sher.Sher is following Wally Pfister's recent form, seizing the director's chair following a successful career as a cinematographer. In particular, he's known for his association with Todd Phillips, acting as Dp on all three Hangover films and Due Date. He also shot Garden State, The Chumscrubber, Dan In Real Life, Paul and The Dictator. But it's not all indies and comedies: he recently contributed some additional photography to Godzilla. The only plot synopsis available for O' Lucky Day so far is that it involves Dinklage trying to pass himself off as a real leprechaun. »
After making a name for himself as one of Hollywood’s best cinematographers, Larry Sher looks ready to add a directing credit to his resume, having signed on to helm the Paramount pic “O’ Lucky Day,” starring Peter Dinklage.
Story follows a man who attempts to pass himself off as a real leprechaun.
While he cut his teeth as Todd Phillips’ cinematographer on the”The Hangover” films and “Due Date,” Sher is starting to gain a higher profile as a studio directo, as he is attached to direct Montecito’s “Bastards” and Warner Bros. “Staycation.”
He’s repped by Wme, Principato Young and Julien Zajfen.

Lena Headey has had a very fruitful run as a horrible, horrible person for the last few years. Images of Queen Cersei and Ma-Ma from "Game Of Thrones" and "Dredd" had all but crowded out the impression she made in the original "300" as Queen Gorgo. Sitting down with her at the recent press day for "300: Rise Of An Empire," I was struck by how easily she's built a reputation for herself as a powerful on-screen figure. My oldest son is currently obsessed with all things related to "The Terminator," despite the fact that he hasn't seen any of the films yet. He listens to the scores for the first two films, he's read every word of a Cinefex issue released when "Terminator 2" came out, and he has several Terminator toys that he considers prized possessions. When he realized that Headey was one of the actors who has played Sarah Connor, »

With the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past this May, Hugh Jackman will have made seven appearances as Wolverine, and while talking to IGN, the star has discussed his time as the clawed hero, and whether he thinks Fox had given any consideration to recasting the role of Logan, particularly with a younger actor for 2011's X-Men: First Class:
"I’m sure they had the discussion. They didn’t mention it to me, obviously! Look, that’s inevitable, man. Anyone who thinks they're indispensable in this business is fooling themselves. But I feel unbelievably blessed to have this part. I never thought in a million years I'd get to play him seven times. Every day I walk on the set with the claws and the hair, I thank my lucky stars. I don't take any of it for granted. To think that in a second version we'd have this cast and this director, »

Considering they were much of the focus for the first season, it's amazing how quickly the ranks of House Stark have thinned in Game of Thrones. We've already said our farewells to Ned (Sean Bean), Robb (Richard Madden) and Catelyn (Michelle Fairley), leaving just Sansa (Sophie Turner), Arya (Maisie Williams), Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), Rickon (Art Parkinson) and Ned Stark's Bastard, a.k.a. Jon Snow (Kit Harington). And, it's Lord Eddard's surviving offspring who are the focus of the latest teaser for the upcoming fourth season of the epic fantasy series, which you can see here....
Game of Thrones season 4 gets underway on HBO in the States on April 6th and on Sky Atlantic in the UK on April 7th.

There’s a bit of strange news floating around right now that Peter Dinklage is being courted to star in another HBO show, the sci-fi Beasts of Valhalla. It’s based on a cool book and has a cool concept and Dinklage is a cool guy. So, what’s the problem? Uh, Game of Thrones. And there be [&hellip
Is Peter Dinklage Really Starring in HBO’s Beasts of Valhalla, Or Is It a Head Fake? »
Season 1 was 'You Win Or You Die'; season 2, 'The Clash Of Kings Has Begun'; and season 3 simply read, "The War Has Just Begun." Now it's the turn of Game Of Thrones' fourth season to get one of those quietly foreboding teaser posters HBO does so well and it has the hardly less doomy "All Men Must Die" splashed across it. Happy Friday to you, too! This poster, via Deadline, has a natty raven-as-swords motif. It can strike you down and peck out your eyeballs all in the same visit. So what does Season 4 hold in its power-hungry clutches? Well, first of all there will be considerable anxiety for Tyrion Lannister. Peter Dinklage’s Imp is in jeopardy from all sides and reliant on the goodwill of his brother Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to bail him out.Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons, increasing in size and lethal threat, are going to be a significant factor, »
Facebook has changed the way people meet one another and how we learn more about people shortly after departing from their company. “Facebook stalking” has become a common enough of a concept that we now have a romance based on that very concept: A Case of You. While everything about it is pretty obvious after the first 30 minutes, from the conflict to the resolution, it still has enough charm and a few good performances to make it worth watching. Director Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy doesn’t have a whole lot of comedy, but its sincerity and cast (Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, Sam Rockwell, Busy Philipps, Peter Dinklage, Brendan Fraser) give it some heft.

HBO's marketing team has been busy this week promoting the return of the epic fantasy series Game of Thrones; so far we've had eighteen (!) character posters and two teaser promos, and now we've got a new one-sheet for the hotly-anticipated fourth season, which is due to get underway in April...
If you missed the two teaser promos featuring Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) you can watch them here, and head here to see the character posters for Tyrion, Dany, Ser Jorah (Iain Glen), Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Cersei (Lena Headey), Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), Tywin (Charles Dance), Arya (Maisie Williams), Jon (Kit Harington), Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright), Sansa (Sophie Turner), The Hound (Rory McCann), Tormund (Kristofer Hivju), The Red Viper (Pedro Pascal), Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen), Ygritte (Rose Leslie), Margaery (Natalie Dormer), Brienne (Gwendoline Christie), Melisandre (Carice van Houten) and Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman).

We’ve seen the phrase “Valar Morghulis” superimposed on all of the 18 character posters released this week for Season 4 of HBO‘s gorgeous epic Game of Thrones, and saw the translation as “All Men Must Die” on the TV spots. Today we see the translated phrase incorporated into the series poster for Season 4, along with a very creepy three-eyed raven. Because all three-eyed ravens are creepy:
So, developing my comment on yesterday’s GoT post a little further: As a fan of the series who hasn’t read the books, I’m choosing to believe that “All Men Must Die” is something Dany, who speaks High Valyrian, uses for her Season 4 battle cry. Having had enough of men, she will decide they must all die, leaving her to rule over all women from the Iron Throne, with the help of her dragons. And that “All Men Must Serve” response is something the men say, »

Like the recent trailer, a batch of new posters for the fourth season of Game of Thrones seems bent on preparing us for an onslaught of characters deaths. The tagline "All Men Must Die" is translation of "Valar morghulis", which is the High Valyrian taught to Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) by Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) in season two. The previous set of posters focused on the Lanisters, and now the rest of the cast is getting their close-ups. If you're like me and haven't read the books, how many of these poor sods are going to make it to season five. Hit the jump to check out the posters. The show also stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Charles Dance, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Aiden Turner, Iain Glen, Rose Leslie, Carice Van Houten, Alfie Allen, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, and Isaac Hempstead Wright. New cast this season include Pedro Pascal, »
