Watch the Game Of Thrones Telltale Game Trailer

20 November 2014 3:14 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The folks over at Telltale Games first came to my attention when I saw people raving about their The Walking Dead game, as many were saying it expertly blended an emotional, character-driven story with solid gameplay.  They may indeed get the same results with their upcoming take on HBO’s Game of Thrones, and the first Game of Thrones Telltale Game trailer has been released online to give fans a brief tease of what we might expect (complete with Lena Headey voiceover).  The game series is being touted as a six-part episodic adventure, with the story revolving around a noble family from the north of Westeros called House Forrester.  They are caught up in the events surrounding the War of Five Kings, and the player will take on the role of different House Forrester members and determine their fate based on the choices he or she makes.

First Trailer For Game Of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series Lands Online

20 November 2014 11:18 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, it looks as if we’re going to be getting a video game that’s worthy of the Game of Thrones name. After several failed attempts at providing a thrilling and accurate representation of HBO’s award-winning drama series, Telltale is stepping up to the plate to deliver Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, which will tell the story of House Forrester, who are caught up in the War of the Five Kings.

Reprising their roles for this adaptation will be Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Natalie Dormer and Iwan Rheon, with additional cast members to appear in later instalments of the episodic series. From the brief, but tantalizing trailer seen above, we get a quick overview of what’s about to go down as Lena Headey provides a chilling voiceover. Unfortunately, there’s no gameplay of any sort, but given Telltale’s pedigree, I don’t think »

4 Women We Loved on TV in 2014

14 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

From a sociopathic prison inmate to an adulterous Long Islander to a stylish lawyer, these are the actors who killed it episode after episode this year. Lena Headey, “Game of Thrones”If one sign of a great actor is the ability to inspire feeling, Headey is as skilled as they come, because few characters on television inspire as much hatred as Cersei Lannister. While many of the despicable things she does are dictated by the series’ source material, the merited disdain from fans is born of Headey’s ability to slather even the nice-sounding things she says with a sickly sweet rancor. She has a way of dragging out individual words and baring her bottom teeth in disgust or condescending amusement, that, when paired with a smirk, makes audiences want to physically assault her. As a character, Cersei has a fierce sense of conviction and an equally fierce stubbornness for preserving her bloodline. »

Frank Grillo is the star in next week’s home entertainment release The Purge: Anarchy. The film is a pseudo-sequel to The Purge, a future set horror that sees all crimes legalised for one night a year. The first film starred Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey as a couple who found their home invaded during the festivities, the follow up shows a group of people who find themselves trapped on the streets during the chaos. Grillo was also on your screens earlier this year in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he played Brock Rumlow, one of the corrupt agents. Comic fans will of course know that his character has a rather interesting alter-ego, Crossbones, one of Red Skulls more formidable henchmen. The Cap didn’t manage to finish off Rumlow in this years film so could that mean that Crossbones will make an appearance in the third instalment?

Core Game Of Thrones cast confirmed for three more potential seasons

31 October 2014 1:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

New Game Of Thrones contracts have been signed by the core cast, with big names signing up until season 7…

We don’t often cover contract-signing news on this site, not least because it’s often very dull reading. However, this nugget of Game Of Thrones news has some interesting connotations for the future of the show.

We’ve learnt today, it would seem, that HBO is rightly confident in their hugely popular show and has planned further ahead than ever with this latest batch of negotiations with the cast.

Key players Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau have all received big raises in return for signing up for three more potential seasons. Their new contracts will take them through to the end of season 7, if everything goes to plan.

Lower down on the payscale, but still nonetheless important to the future of the show, Natalie Dormer, »

HBO Plots 7th (Maybe Final) Game of Thrones Season

30 October 2014 5:03 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

HBO is not wasting time to plot the 7th season of Game of Thrones. The popular series was renewed for a fifth and sixth season this summer, with high hopes for more episodes. Now HBO is trying to lock in the cast into a contractor for their 7th season which could be a possible end game for the show. This includes Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey being signed on for the yet to even be confirmed season.

This is exciting and sad news. The network has hinted that if they reach a 7th season, that would be where they end. So it will be very sad news to hear that a 7th will finally take place, which will also be an amazing feat for a series based on an unfinished book series. I am sure HBO is counting on that, but we do applaud them for trying here to prepare for it. »

First Look at 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'!

30 October 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Bennet sisters from Jane Austen's beloved novel get a zombie-killing makeover in our first look at Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) show off their swords and knives in this image, which teases how these characters have evolved from eligible single ladies to fierce warriors.

The project is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel, which takes Jane Austen's characters and plunges them into a world set 70 years after the zombies first took over the planet. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was stuck in development for several years, with David O. Russell writing the script and set to direct at one point, before Burr Steers came aboard in August.

The filmmaker revealed that the first thing he did was rewrite David O. Russell's screenplay, "beefing up" the roles of Darcy (Sam Riley »

Promo Photo from Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

30 October 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Seth Grahame-Smith's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has been in and out of development for years. But last month the project finally started shooting, and, thanks to EW, today we have our first look at the film in the form of a promo photo featuring the Bennet Sisters. From left to right they include Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse).

Fighting and killing zombies with weapons and martial arts skills isn't anything new for the characters in this story. The zombie plague has been around for 70 years by the time Pride and Prejudice and Zombies picks up. It's just in the meantime they are dealing with marriage prospects and family drama.

The book is an expanded version of the Jane Austen classic, and the film will focus on Liz Bennett, a woman on a quest for love and independence »

First Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Image: The Bennet Sisters Armed and Ready to Slay the Sorry Stricken

30 October 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Who’s ready to see Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty Bennet (Suki Waterhouse) take on some “unmentionables?”  Burr Steers’ book to film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is currently in production and EW’s got our very first look at the sisters wielding swords and daggers. Hit the jump to take a look at the new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies image.  The film is expected to hit theaters next year and also stars Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Sam Riley. This big screen rendition of Grahame-Smith’s book has been kicking around for a while and at one point, David O. Russell penned a script and made plans to direct as well.  However, that never panned out and Steers took over instead, rewriting Russell’s script while making “realism” a top priority. »
