Watch more Jason Momoa: I Told George R.R. Martin "Go F— Yourself" Among the highlights were several snippets from the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, including footage of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) chatting with Olly (Brenock O'Connor), Cersei (Lena Headey) looking peeved, Arya's (Maisie Williams) arrival and Tyrion rocking a serious beard.

'Game of Thrones' Season 5: Tyrion's New Look Revealed

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warning, there are Spoilers contained in this story: Earlier today, HBO released a year-end trailer which features a sneak peek at the pay cable network's upcoming 2015 slate. And it of course includes a few select scenes from Game of Thrones as it prepares for its big Season 5 premiere this spring. While this preview is short, it does reveal Peter Dinklage's new look as Tyrion Lannister.

Tyrion is seen in his new beard, wearing a hood. This is presumably to disguise himself after breaking out of prison to kill Shae (Sibel Kekilli) and his father Tywin (Charles Dance). Nothing else about Tyrion's latest adventures is revealed, but we do get to see Joffrey's mother, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), walking with two soldiers following closely behind her. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) can be seen, back with the men of the Night's Watch. And Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) is shown wearing her »

'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Teasers Reveal New Footage

19 December 2014 1:55 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, fans who signed into the Game of Thrones viral site ThreeEyedRaven.com received a second "vision" from this mystical creature, which offered a brief five-second glimpse at Season 5, following the initial sneak peek from November. Today we have yet two more videos featuring even more new footage. While the video from last week clearly showcased Cersei (Lena Headey), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), these latest sneak peeks are much more mysterious. We do see what is believed to be the door to The House of Black and White.

The Huffington Post confirms that one of the shots features Pedro Pascal's Oberyn Martell. But we are not seeing the return of Oberyn as the Red Viper. No, this footage is actually not from Season 5, but from the Season 4 episode "The Mountain and the Viper". The second teaser also features a brief glimpse at »

Michael K. Williams And Frank Grillo May Lead The Purge 3; Carmen Ejogo Wants Out

19 December 2014 8:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey just about held their own in the first Purge, Blumhouse must have known it was onto better things when Frank Grillo and Michael K. Williams stepped up to the plate for sequel The Purge: Anarchy. In the lead role, Grillo was all badass machismo and exactly the type of action star you don’t see much of these days. And Williams injected some much-needed intrigue into the story as a freedom fighter defying the totalitarian Founding Fathers. Now, it appears both stars are back for The Purge 3.

We exclusively reported back in July that Williams would be returning as YouTube revolutionary Carmelo and was being upgrading from a supporting cast member to a lead. Now, during press interviews for his upcoming Mark Wahlberg dramedy The Gambler, the actor has revealed that Grillo is also likely to rejoin him for The Purge 3: »

'Game of Thrones' Season 5 Teaser Reveals 5 Second Preview

17 December 2014 7:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In late November, HBO launched a new Game of Thrones website called ThreeEyedRaven.com, which brought forth the first footage from Season 5. A new teaser has debuted for the site, which brings another sneak peak at the show's anticipated return. Though, if you blink you may miss it.

Producers are clearly getting a kick out of teasing fans, having originally debuted this teaser for their website only on mobile devices. Access to the latest footage, which totals 5 seconds in length, proved to be quite difficult to obtain at first. Users were required to subscribe to receive the promotional video via SMS. And it could only be watched once, with screenshots prohibited.

Reddit User StrongJoe was able to create a Youtube video from the ad, which totals 10 seconds in all. The 5 seconds of new footage include Cersei (Lena Headey) peering from behind the gate. We also see Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) looking directly into the camera, »

Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

10 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

SAG Nominations and Announcement of A New Feature

10 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.

Here's where a new running feature comes into play:

As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

Sundance ’15: Baumbach, Fleck/Boden, Pulcini/Berman, Ponsoldt & Another Swanberg Among Premieres

8 December 2014 1:25 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Last year’s slate of seventeen Narrative Premieres (excluding secret screenings of Boyhood and Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) refreshingly included works from first time filmmakers. I hadn’t seen it coming but Little Accidents and The One I Love were included among the likes of Calvary, Frank and Love is Strange. 2015 will be a true we Swanberg family affair with Joe Swanberg joining wife Kris (Unexpected) with a feature as well in Digging for Fire. James Ponsoldt is officially four for four with Sundance — his latest End of the Tour should be a slam dunk for the Eccles. Sticking to the numbers game… we’ll have a lovely bedfellow pairings of Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s already announced The Stanford Prison Experiment which is going to be mentioned in many loglines alongside Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter - about the Milgram experiment. Among the filmmaking duos we were expecting, we find Mississippi Grind »

Sundance Film Festival Announces 2015 Premieres Lineup

8 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Viola Davis, Jennifer Lopez, James Franco, Ewan McGregor, Greta Gerwig, Jesse Eisenberg, Saoirse Ronan, Ryan Reynolds, Peter Sarsgaard and Lily Tomlin — as well as directors Noah Baumbach, Michael Almereyda, Rodrigo Garcia, James Ponsoldt, Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman — are among the big names in the Premieres lineup at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, unveiled today along with Documentary Premieres and a new Special Events section.

Festival director John Cooper noted that while this year’s 16 Premieres selections will be among the buzziest, most commercial titles in Park City, “they’re not without an independent feel to them, and that’s what I’m always looking for. There is a very independent spirit behind these films.”

By way of example, Cooper cited “Last Days in the Desert,” a description-resistant foray into father-son territory from Garcia, a director known for his stories about women (“Nine Lives,” “Mother and Child”); John Crowley’s “Brooklyn, »

Sundance: Premieres, Doc Premieres

8 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Festival top brass have revealed a high-profile roster of out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres entries featuring many returning heroes, as well as a new Special Events section and panel participants including George Lucas.

Justin Kelly’s I Am Michael is likely to become a major talking point and stars James Franco and Zachary Quinto in the true tale of activist and Young Gay America co-founder Michael Glatze, who renounced his homosexuality and became a Christian pastor. The Exchange handles international rights.

James Ponsoldt’s David Foster Wallace film End Of The Tour (pictured, photo by Jakob Ihre) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel makes the cut — Fortitude International is the international sales agent — as does the latest from the newly prolific Noah Baumbach, whose Mistress America stars his Frances Ha and Greenberg muse Greta Gerwig and arrives three months after the Toronto premiere of While We’re Young.
