'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

28 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Will Bring One Epic Shock After the Next

17 July 2015 6:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, HBO's Game of Thrones held their annual Comic-Con panel, but fans didn't get any insight into Season 6, since production hasn't started yet. While speaking with The Los Angeles Times, Emilia Clarke teased that this season will be epic and shocking. The actress didn't reveal any specific details. Though, her enthusiasm for Game of Thrones Season 6 is readily apparent. And holds a lot of promise for fans eager to return to this world. She explains.

"There's so much in store for her. I'm saying that obviously because I've read the script for next season. It's really exciting. Next season, I've said this before, but there's a lot of seasons where you need to (rightly so) kind of need to set the scene. And you have a couple of episodes where you're like, 'Ok, feeding information, I get it. We're finding out about this person. And we know about that person. »

Watch A Class Trip Go Wrong With The Bad Education Movie Trailer

13 July 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The hit Bcc comedy comes to the big screen this Summer with The Bad Education Movie seeing Jack Whitehall’s immature teacher Alfie Wickers embark on a chaotic class trip with his tear away students. This might go over the heads of our American friends, but those in Ireland and the U.K. should know know exactly what to expect. No doubt, this will hope to emulate the success of fellow  t.v. to movie converts Alan Partridge, The Inbetweeners, and Mrs. Brown, and judging from the below trailer, which brings with it a fair amount of chuckles, it shouldn’t have a problem, with Whitehall being his usual liable self, and joined by an ables cast, including Harry Enfield, Matthew Horne, and Game of ThronesIan Glen. The Bad Education Movie hits our shores August 21st. »

Bad Education Movie first trailer: Jack Whitehall's Alfie and his tearaway teens cause havoc on holiday

12 July 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jack Whitehall is a badass teacher in the first trailer for The Bad Education Movie.

Alfie Wickers and his tearaway pupils are back for a big-screen version of the hit BBC comedy, which arrives in cinemas in the UK and Ireland on Friday, August 21.

In the trailer, Alfie is itching to take his class for one last trip away together after completing their exams - but soon comes up against opposition from disgruntled parents who don't think he's an appropriate role model.

In response, he resolves to take the students "on a holiday that's so bats**t mental that if it was a movie, everyone would be played by Nicolas Cage", and they soon tear up Cornwall, raising havoc, insulting the locals and upsetting the resident wildlife.

Harry Enfield, Mathew Horne and Sarah Solemani will reprise their roles from the sitcom, alongside the pupils played by Ethan Lawrence, Layton Williams, »

Emilia Clarke Gets "Bazaar"

Sneak Peek new images of "Game Of Thrones" and "Terminator Genisys" actress Emilia Clarke, in the June/July 2015 issue of "Harper's Bazaar" magazine, photographed by Norman Jean Roy:

"'Game of Thrones' opened a lot of doors," said Clarke. "It opened them all...that big, awesome storytelling. Like when you were a kid and you imagined it. That's bonkers."

"I'm wanting to do smaller character pieces, more serious things, less tennis ball and green sticks and special effects.

Clarke also talked about not using a body double in "Game of Thrones", referring to her first nude experience on the series, as all "charred boobies and a modesty patch."

"The crew was a few cliffs over," she said. "So it's me, four or five extras, and Iain Glen (aka 'Ser Jorah').

"Iain does this thing where he lifts his head up and his face goes, 'Aahh, naked lady.' »

TV Review: Game Of Thrones: Season 5, Episode 10: Mother’s Mercy [HBO]

15 June 2015 2:06 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

HBO’s Game of Thrones Mother’s Mercy TV Show Review. Game of Thrones: Season 5, Episode 10: Mother’s Mercy brought several main character’s season long arcs to a close, striking a typically “Game of Thrones-ian” balance of closure for season 5 and rabid anticipation heading into  season 6.

Stannis, Stannis, Stannis (Stephen Dillane). What is there left to say about the would be king of The Seven Kingdoms? We already knew that he was out of the running for the Westerosi father of the year award, but the unfortunate string of events he endured in this episode showed him there is always a lower emotional rung to sink to. There was a bit of dark comedic timing in the way the soldiers reported increasingly dire circumstances to Stannis that was reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch.

‘Game of Thrones’ Delivers Stunning Season Finale (Spoilers)

14 June 2015 8:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Game of Thrones” has a reputation for gigantic penultimate episodes, followed by lower-key season finales. Well, so much for that theory. In a head-spinning sequence of events, the fifth season’s closing chapter delivered an abundance of jaw-dropping moments, ending one quest to sit on the Iron Throne and leaving other key players suspended – at least until the next go-round – in considerable peril. Although the season was marred by controversy regarding its brutal treatment of female characters, the finish offered a reminder that there is simply nothing else on TV to rival the show’s immersion into a world of such epic storytelling.

The credit “directed by David Nutter” – the pilot maestro who brought his distinctive touch to the shocking “Red Wedding” episode – might have been the first clue that this would be an hour that would command undivided attention. That began (and Spoiler Alert if you have yet to »

The Mother’s Mercy trailer begins with a Jorah, Daario and Tyrion waiting anxiously in Daenerys’ throne room. We get a brief glimps of a pensive Jon Snow before a tight shot of a desperate looking Cersei.  We hear Melisandre state that the lord of light has made good on his promise, likely a reference to receiving his good favour in exchange for the sacrifice of Shireen. We see two brief shots, one of Arya followed by Brienne and Podrick before closing with a defiant Sansa claiming, “If I’m going to die, let it happen while there is still some of me left”.

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 9 Review

8 June 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the ninth episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

The Dance of Dragons.

Directed by David Nutter.

Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss.

Stannis

Game of Thrones’ history with episode nines is pretty gory. Ned getting beheaded, the Red Wedding and the Battles of Blackwater Bay and Castle Black all occurred in each of the four seasons’ penultimate instalments. But with last week’s epic White Walker-centric episode eight, perhaps they shot their blood-spilling load early. Maybe, instead of our favourite characters suffering horrible deaths, we’d get some Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) light banter, or Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn) continuing their lads’ holiday down in Dorne.

Nope. They set a child on fire.

usually, the Internet would react rather strongly – a kid being burnt at the stake and all that – but it seemed to have used up all its outrage »
