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.

Ygritte (Rose Leslie) trudges through the town slicing and stabbing indiscriminately with her dagger, »

'Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke talks Dany's harsh break-up with [spoiler]

1 June 2014 7:12 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Warning: This post contains spoilers from tonight’s Game of Thrones

Theirs was a deep, passionate celibate romance: Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen). In Sunday’s Game of Thrones, Dany finally learned of her most trusted adviser’s early fleeting treachery, how the grizzled exiled knight who fled Westeros spied on her for the crown in an attempt to earn a pardon for trading in slaves.

'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' Recap: Tyrion Demands Trial By Combat; Dany's Rule In Mereen Remains Precarious

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

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, »

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Tommen Is Crowned King; Littlefinger Responsible For Westeros' Chaos

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

Game of Thrones episode “First of His Name” began with the crowning of Tommen Baratheon (Dean Charles-Chapman), the youngest son born of the incest between Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jamie Lannister (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau). “Long may he reign,” chants those congregated in the long, dimly lit hall, mere days after the death of King Joffrey (Jack Gleason) and his short rule.

Game Of Thrones Recap

While he’s paid respects by the people he now rules, Tommen looks over to Margaery (Natalie Dormer), who's looking over at him adoringly from a distance. When Cersei follows Tommen’s eyes to Margaery, she leaves his side to have a chat with her former daughter-in-law of an hour. Margaery compliments Tommen’s composure on the throne and expresses her sadness over the loss of Joffrey. Cersei, shedding her blind love for her late son, acknowledges that Joffrey would have been a nightmare to Margaery »

Game Of Thrones: 10 Characters We Love To Hate

29 April 2014 6:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

Can you think of any character in Game of Thrones who is totally morally upright?

Nobody defines ‘love to hate’ like some of the characters of Game of Thrones, whether they be a traitorous bannerman of one of the good guys or a psychopathic king with a penchant for killing prostitutes with a crossbow. In a world where the heroes of the story seem to be getting killed off all the time, there seem to be more and more characters for us to hate every week.

This article celebrates the most depraved characters in Game of Thrones: the murderers, the madmen, the traitors and the schemers and why we love them so much. A lot of them have absolutely no redeeming qualities (and even when they show signs of good they throw them out the window like Bran Stark an episode later) but we still love watching them every week. »

HBO Renews Game Of Thrones For Two More Season In Least Surprising News Ever

9 April 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Considering the history we already know about HBO and renewing Game of Thrones, the news that the show is being renewed is only slightly surprising, and only because the show has officially been picked up for two more seasons, instead of just one. Even that is only mildly surprising after we found out that the premiere of the fourth season crashed HBO Go, and now that we know that it had the highest viewership the series has ever managed, it’s probably something of a no-brainer to think that the network would extend the series as long as makes sense.

This is not only good news for fans in the most obvious sense, but also because of the room to maneuver that a two-season cushion gives the production and writing staff for a series. Everyone probably felt pretty comfortable with the series anyway, but having two seasons to play with »
