Thanks to The Daily Mail, we’ve got a new batch of set photos from the fifth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, which is currently filming in Osuna, Spain. If you’re looking to avoid any and all spoilers, then you may want to turn back now…

Featured in the images are Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei), Michiel Huisman (Daario Naharis), Hizdahr zo Loraq (Joel Fry) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), who watch on as Iain Glen’s Jorah Mormont does battle in Daznak’s Pit.

Game Of Thrones: Latest Season 5 Set Pics Come With Major Spoilers

21 October 2014 12:56 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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. These pics clearly show that along with Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), Hizdahr zo Loraq (Joel Fry), Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel), and Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman) there are a couple of characters that were not present at this time in A Dance With Dragons: Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen). In the novel, Tyrion does meet up with Jorah and they form a strained alliance, but they have yet to encounter these characters. Remember that in season 4 of the show, dany banished »

Have 'The Walking Dead' fans become numb to all the atrocities?

20 October 2014 6:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Have “The Walking Dead” fans become numb to all the atrocities? "'The Walking Dead' has always lived in uncharted television territory, and you can’t say that viewers weren’t warned that this season was determined to go even further beyond Thunderdome,” says Jeff Labrecque, adding: "But is it too far? And is 'The Walking Dead' getting a free pass because its explicit depictions of violence are framed within a zombiefied landscape?” “The Real World" Season 30 is going with a "Skeletons” format The Chicago-set "Real World: Skeletons" will feature "skeletons" from the housemates’ past, who move in to "drum up secrets and dark memories.” “Gossip Girl’s” Penn Badgley will romance Mary-Louise Parker on NBC’s “The Slap” He’ll play her much-younger boyfriend on the NBC miniseries about a   slap gone wrong.

Spoiler Alert: Get a Sneak Peek of Game of Thrones Season 5!

20 October 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Game of Thrones is currently shooting season five in Spain, which is standing in for Dorne, where the late Oberyn Martell hailed from, and we have a handful of juicy pictures from the set. We can't quite tell which new characters are there yet, but we can see Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) watching over a battle while she wears a white dress we've never seen. If you've read the books, you'll know exactly what's going on here, and the characters who are appearing together is kind of a spoiler as well. Also of note? One of the participants in the duel is the disgraced Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen). What else can you deduce from this sneak peek? »

An interview with Gold director Niall Heery

20 October 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chloe Seager talks to Niall Heery, director of Gold

Gold is a film that inserts itself like a 360-degree rotating microscope into a family home that is quaking under its less than stable structure. Maybe this is why it seems so fitting that the screenplay was written by a pair of brothers, Niall and Brendan Heery; though Niall assured me it wasn’t based on real-life experience. ‘I’m very glad it’s not autobiographical!’ he exclaimed thankfully. Perhaps the Heery family was not disrupted by an estranged father returning after twelve long years of absence, but the influence of the siblings’ shared experiences is clear in the writing. Niall described his father as ‘a keen athlete,’ much like James Nesbitt’s character Frank; ‘he used to wake us up and get us out of bed at 6am to go running of the beach – neither of us were interested!’ he joked. »

Photos: Dinklage Films "Game of Thrones" S5

31 August 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A Reddit user has snapped some blurry and distant photos whilst on the set of HBO's "Game of Thrones" which is currently in the midst of shooting its fifth season. The shots, taken in Kastel Gomilica in Croatia, hint at what happens to several of the characters in the coming season.

Season 5 Spoilers Ahead

Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) and in a blurry distant photo in a rowboat Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) were all on hand for the filming according to the source, whilst Dinklage's new outfit can be glimpsed.

Fans of the books know that plot threads from the fourth and fifth book in the series will feature heavily this season, but the pairing of Tyrion and Jorah takes place a good way into the fifth book which seems to suggest the producers are moving fairly quickly with the adaptation of these two tomes and are »

Game Of Thrones: Peter Dinklage & Spoiler Snapped On Season 5 Set

30 August 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Obviously the following won't be a surprise to those who have read the source novels, but for anyone else, Spoiler Warning. So, someone managed to get a couple of pics of both Peter Dinklage (Tyrion...in his new season 5 wardrobe) and Ian Glen (Jorah Mormont) as they were preparing to shoot a scene together on the Antrim set. As book readers will know, their paths cross in A Dance With Dragons and although they are forced into an uneasy alliance at first, we may be seeing the seeds of a genuine friendship emerge. We also have some snaps from Kastel Gomilica in Croatia, where Maisie Williams (Arya) was apparently shooting some Braavos scenes. That looks like it could be her in the boat! »

TV Review: ‘Breathless’

21 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Doctors and nurses have been engaged in soapy doings since broadcasting’s infancy, but seldom in a package quite as tantalizing as “Breathless.” Set in the early ‘60s, this three-part “Masterpiece” production obviously shares certain qualities with “Mad Men,” but quickly establishes its own spin on the era replete with a web of interlocking relationships. Built around a dashing gynecologist who performs illegal abortions, the project feels timely and provocative, but can just as easily be savored strictly for its “Peyton Place”-like attributes. For those needing a fix of sumptuous British period drama until “Downton Abbey” docks, “Breathless” is a breath of fresh air.

The producers won half the battle by casting Jack Davenport (closer to “Swingtown,” happily, than his “Smash” ordeal) as Dr. Otto Powell, who appears to saunter through life with nary a care despite breaking the law to assist women with terminating unwanted pregnancies.

10 Big Film Stars Who Appeared In Doctor Who

4 August 2014 12:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

As one of Us TV’s most established series, not to mention the lucrative films, it is no surprise that Star Trek has featured such an impressive number of movie stars in it’s extensive list of guest actors. Throughout it’s classic run however, Doctor Who wasn’t so lucky. As the years went on it’s reputation began to wane, and towards the end of it’s 26 season run it was unfortunately attracting the likes of Ken Dodd rather than Kenneth Branagh

Luckily this is just one of the many things that the revival of the series has set about changing however. In fact the show has been graced by the presence of no less than seven highly successful movie stars in just the last two seasons alone, showing just how rapidly this trend of big name guests is increasing.

While there are film stars such as Simon Pegg, »

Exclusive: Trailer For Short Film 'Retrospective' With 'Game Of Thrones' Star Charles Dance

30 July 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Among many of the services that "Game Of Thrones" has done (boosting George R. R. Martin's book sales, keeping the fake blood industry alive, etc etc), perhaps the greatest is giving new leases of life to veteran stars. The show's hugely expansive cast features a host of recognizable faces, but given the series' enormous popularity, it's likely that people like Diana Rigg, Stephen Dillane, Iain Glen et al are winning over new generations of fans. One of the biggest beneficiaries has to be Charles Dance, who plays steely patriarch Tywin Lannister on the series. Dance's magnetic presence has been seen in major films like "The Jewel In The Crown," "Alien 3" and "Last Action Hero," but he's been giving one of the finest performances of his career  as Tywin, and it's revitalized his career, with roles in big films like "Dracula Untold," "The Imitation Game" and "Child 44" on the way. »

9 July 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tom Cruise has a new love interest - at least in theory. Swedish actress Rebecca Ferguson, who won a Golden Globe nod for her performance in last year's BBC/Starz miniseries "The White Queen," has won the coveted female lead in "Mission: Impossible 5," according to Deadline. The actress joins returning stars Cruise, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner in the Christopher McQuarrie-directed sequel, which (as we found out earlier today) Alec Baldwin is also reportedly in talks for. The followup is set to begin filming in August. In addition to her role in the forthcoming Dwayne Johnson action vehicle "Hercules," Ferguson's credits include Swedish soap opera "Nya tider," "Wallander" and Ridley Scott's scrapped Showtime pilot "The Vatican." Other upcoming films include "Despite the Falling Snow" opposite Charles Dance and "The Red Tent" co-starring Morena Baccarin, Minnie Driver, Iain Glen and Debra Winger. The last entry in the series, »

6 July 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ever since Former Doctor Who Star Sylvester McCoy revealed that he had some inside information on the upcoming season 8 episodes of the popular BBC series--which will feature Peter Capaldi stepping into the iconic role of the heroic Time Lord—there has been speculation that the Doctor’s greatest rival, the Master, will be back. If he does return, who should play him?

Back in March,  Sylvester Mc Coy--who portrayed the enigmatic seventh Doctor in the classic Doctor Who series—gave an interview with Zap2it at the Newcastle Film and Comic Convention, where he reported that he had inside information on the return of the Doctor’s arch rival, the Master. According to McCoy, the newest incarnation of the Master will be “very, very  scary”.  Furthermore, there is a picture from this season of a shrunken Tardis (see below) and we all know that in the classic series, the Master loved to shrink things. »
