Focus Features has moved up its Jesse Owens drama “Race” from April 8, 2016 to February 19, 2016, where it will open against “Barbershop 3” and the Naomi Watts thriller “Shut In.” It’s a smart move on Focus’ part, as “Race” had been slated to open against Melissa McCarthy‘s comedy “Michelle Darnell,” George Clooney‘s thriller “Money Monster,” Jake Gyllenhaal‘s drama “Demolition” and the big-budget fantasy film “Gods of Egypt.” Rising star Stephan James plays Olympic hero Jesse Owens in the film, which co-stars Jeremy Irons, William Hurt, Jason Sudeikis and Carice van Houten.Also Read: Relativity Nearing Deal for Jesse Owens Biopic. »

'Game of Thrones' Season 6: Will Stannis Return?

27 August 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For the first time since Game of Thrones debuted on HBO in 2010, those who read the original books by George R.R. Martin and those who have only enjoyed the TV series are on the same playing field. Season 5 brought us to the end of George R.R. Martin's last novel, A Dance With Dragons, and now no one knows what to expect when Game of Thrones Season 6 debuts next year. Yesterday, George R.R. Martin responded to a fan on his LiveJournal page, who asked whether or not Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) was really dead, after his apparent murder at the hands of Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in the Season 5 finale. Here's what the author had to say about Stannis' fate.

"In my books? Alive, beyond a doubt."

Now, that doesn't necessarily mean that Stannis will be back in Season 6, since the show has often deviated from the Game of Thrones books. »

Irish actress Jenn Murray has a "key role" in Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

6 August 2015 3:26 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is following yesterday's news of Colin Farrell's Wizard casting with a lesser-known but possibly just as vital addition.

Irish actress Jenn Murray will have a "key role" in the Harry Potter spinoff, according to The Wrap.

Jk Rowling has written the script, expanding her Potter universe, with director David Yates returning to the series.

Eddie Redmayne will play the lead Newt Scamander, a magical zoologist on an adventure in New York.

Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol have been cast as sisters alongside Ezra Miller and Dan Fogler.

Murray will apparently appear in scenes with Miller, who is expected to be Scamander's rival.

The actress has previously starred in Dorothy Mills alongside Carice van Houten, while she has upcoming roles in Love and Friendship opposite Chloe Sevigny and Stephen Fry, and Brooklyn with Saoirse Ronan. She also appeared in BBC dramas Truckers and The Fades. »

'Bridge of Spies', 'Concussion', 'Maze Runner: Scorch Trials' and More in Today's MPAA Ratings

4 August 2015 4:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Today's MPAA ratings bulletin delivers a couple of potential Oscar contenders beginning with Steven Spielberg's Cold War thriller starring Tom Hanks, Bridge of Spies. No surprise this one is rated PG-13 and a tame one at that and it's not much different when it comes to Peter Landesman's NFL head injury drama Concussion starring Will Smith. A lengthy bit of reasoning accompanies the PG-13 for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and there's a lot said about Paramount's R-rated Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse. A24's Room, however, starring Brie Larson gets a concise and to the point R rating for language. Nuff said. Also included is Incarnate, a new Blumhouse horror from director Brad Peyton (San Andreas) and starring Carice van Houten, Aaron Eckhart, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Keir O'Donnell. IMDb says the thriller will play in Belgium in September, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear »

'Game of Thrones' Season 6: Actors Share Exciting One-Word Script Teases

15 July 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Game of Thrones" only recently ended Season 5 and they are just starting Season 6, so there was no footage to show at Comic-Con and no major spoilers shared at the panel. However, after the Comic-Con panel, HBO's Making Game of Thrones asked several cast members two questions: 1) What GoT scene would they have loved to have been in, and 2) What one-word tease would they give for Season 6, based off the newly delivered scripts? Read the full story for the scene answers, but we're all about Season 6 right now so we wanted whatever hints they could share from the scripts.

It's interesting to learn who hadn't even read the pages by that point. Hannah Murray (Gilly) said she hadn't received her scripts yet. "Mystery, would be a good word. We don't do hard copies anymore because of security but I think they're on their way." John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) read his scripts and gave this description: "Rich. »

'Game Of Thrones' cast reflect on roles

11 July 2015 2:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Comic-con: The panellists from HBO’s smash series took to the hallowed Hall H on Friday with their hands – and mouths – tied.

The production cycle dictates the impact of Comic-Con presentations and, with the start of shooting on Season 6 still several months away, it was Natalie Dormer, who plays the scheming Margaery Tyrell in Game Of Thrones, who best summed it up.

“I don’t have an effing clue,” she replied when asked what audiences could expect from her character when the fun and games resume in March 2016.

The cast have not read their lines yet and even executive producer Carolyn Strauss was restricted to circumspect replies that shed no light on what to expect.

That is not to detract from the entertaining quality of a panel populated with a good mix of significant characters, even if arguably the most pressing question of them all – namely how the show runners might crowbar the very dead Jon Snow back into »

Game Of Thrones Comic-Con Panel Recap: Arya’s Future, and Much More

10 July 2015 8:44 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Considering just how massive Game of Thrones has become since its inception on HBO in 2011, it’s not surprising that this year’s Comic-Con Panel, which feature a huge portion of the cast alongside veteran executive producer Carolyn Strauss and prominent director David Nutter, focused mainly on reflecting on all that went down in Season 5. Alongside Strauss and Nutter, Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Natalie Dormer, Conleth Hill, Hannah Murray, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten, and Maisie Williams fielded a series of questions that covered quite a lot of Season 5 ground, as well as referencing the overall goals, trajectory, and impulses of their characters. Oh, and all the immense work that goes into producing a show that may be the most cinematic-looking series currently still in production. (Note: Hannibal is no longer in production.)

It may not have provided fans the Jon Snow closure they so desperately sought, but Friday’s “Game of Thrones” panel at Comic-Con did give Westeros loyalists a look at some of the stars’ memorable audition tapes.

Is Jon Snow still alive? Fans hoping for a definitive answer to “Game of Thrones'” biggest cliffhanger were left wanting after the show’s San Diego Comic Con panel Friday. The assembled cast – Gwendoline Christine, Liam Cunningham, Carice Van Houten, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, Alfie Allen, Hanah Murray, John Bradley, Maisie Williams and Colenth Hill and director David Nutter and executive producer Carolyn Strauss — mostly sidestep the question when it was brought up by a fan.
