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. Assured and self-confident, »

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. »

Tom Cruise's female 'Mission: Impossible 5' co-star is 'Hercules'' Rebecca Ferguson

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, »

Our Top 5 Picks on Who Could Play the Master on Doctor Who

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. »

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: The Mountain & Red Viper Determine Tyrion's Fate; Sansa Saves Littlefinger To Save Herself

1 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Game of Thrones returned on Sunday after a week off with an episode that promised to reveal Tyrion’s fate, as the Red Viper would finally face off against the Mountain. Before the trial by combat in King’s Landing, “The Mountain and the Viper” caught up with Thrones characters elsewhere in Westeros and the Free Cities.

Game Of Thrones Recap

Not far south of The Wall rests Molestown, where Sam (John Bradley) decided Gilly (Hannah Murray) and her baby would be safer than at Castle Black. In the whoring village, prostitutes and their clients revel with booze and crude jokes and songs. One of the workers chides Gilly for her comparative purity and ignores her when she says she hears something suspicious outside. As it turns out, Gilly was hearing the beginnings of a Wildling attack on Molestown.

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Prince Oberyn Becomes Tyrion's Champion; Littlefinger Offs Lysa

18 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Game of Thrones episode “Mockingbird” began in King’s Landing with Tyrion getting a scolding from Jamie for his off-script monologue in the courtroom in which he admitted his hatred for his late vile nephew Joffrey, his sister Cersei and father, Lord Tywin.

King’s Landing

Instead of going along with the plan Jamie (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau) had for him that would have seen Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) spared death and sent to The Wall in exchange for Jamie marrying and having sons at Casterly Rock, Tyrion demanded a Trial by Combat. Jamie can’t believe that Tyrion, known for his sometimes-ruthless pragmatism and wit, would risk losing his head for the sake of pride. He also tells his little brother that he won’t be his champion.

Though Jamie has been practicing sword fighting with his left hand with Bronn (Jerome Flynn), it’s still not good enough to hold off even the weakest of opponents. »

Game of Thrones' “The Laws of Gods and Men” saw Stannis visit Braavos, Dany’s sense of justice questioned and Tyrion derail his father’s plans for his murder trial.

Game of Thrones Recap

The episode first shows Stannis (Stephen Dillane) and Davos (Liam Cunningham) in Braavos, where they attempt to hit up the Iron Bank for coin to fund their quest for the throne. After waiting for hours, they're finally given an audience with Tycho Nestoris (Mark Gatiss). Stannis makes the case, as he has over and over, that he’s the rightful heir to the throne as Robert Baratheon’s brother. Robert’s children, Stannis tells Tycho, were never really his and that they were born of Lannister incest.

Tycho doesn’t have any proof about the Lannister family, all he knows are the numbers in his books. He wants to know the number of men they have, »
