We have an exclusive Low Down clip to premiere. Based on the memoir by Amy-Jo Albany, Low Down examines the complex relationship between jazz pianist Joe Albany (John Hawkes) and his daughter Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning): "Set against a sensuously textured 1970s Hollywood, the film beautifully evokes a colorful, seedy world of struggling musicians, artists, and vagabonds." Peter Dinklage plays one of those vagabonds, offering Amy-Jo a tour of his hole-in-the-wall in the clip. Lena Headey, Flea, Caleb Landry Jones, and Glenn Close also star. Low Down opens in New York October 24 and reaches Los Angeles October 31. Watch the clip after the jump.

Groovin’ High: Hawkes Nuanced Performance Elevates Albany Memoir
Despite taking home the best cinematography prize for Christopher Blauvet (who also provided superb camerawork on Kelly Reichardt’s 2013 title Night Moves) after its premiere at Sundance and snagging Elle Fanning a Best Actress award at the Karlovy Film Festival, Low Down is otherwise a rather unremarkable treatment of a slipping down life, bright lights dimmed by the self-induced depravity of drugs and alcohol. Told from the perspective of the teenage daughter of jazz pianist Joe Albany, the film is the first time feature from Jeff Preiss, heretofore a music video director (Mariah Carey’s “Emotions”) and a documentary cinematographer. Perhaps this explains why much of the film feels concerned with superficial detailing of a vintage time and era rather than it does as a chapter in a young woman’s life growing up with troubled yet notable parental figures.

John Hawkes delivers a superb performance in Low Down as noted jazz pianist Joe Albany who played with musical greats Charlie Parker and Miles Davis but was torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter (Elle Fanning), and a debilitating heroin addiction. The bio-pic opening October 24th is directed by experimental filmmaker Jeff Preiss in his feature debut and based on the memoirs of Albany’s daughter Amy-Jo Albany who co-wrote the screenplay with Topper Lilien.

Below we have the latest season 5 set images from HBO's Game Of Thrones. The pics were snapped in Osuna’s bullring, which will double for Daznak’s fighting pit in the show. In the books, Dany marries Hizdahr zo Loraq in order to restore peace in Mereen and decrees that the pits be closed, but is persuaded to reopen them for one final tournament to celebrate their wedding.

"Game of Thrones" is pressing rewind next season - the HBO drama is going back in time via flashbacks!
Executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss recently revealed, "Making the first season, we set a rule: No prophecies, dreams, or flashbacks. We already failed the first two, and this season we broke the third. So yes, this season will finally have flashbacks."
What will those flashbacks be? Rumor has it that they involved the Lannister family, as fan reports indicated the show was casting a Young Cersei.
That jives with cryptic remarks made by Charles Dance, who plays Tywin Lannister. Last we saw Tywin, he'd been shot dead by his son, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage). And yet, Dance hinted that we'd see him again in season 5.
