Carice van Houten: What's In My Bag

23 hours ago | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

"You have no idea what kind of pig you’re talking to!” warns Carice van Houten, who plays red priestess Melisandre on Game of Thrones (HBO, Sundays, 10 p.m.). “I throw everything in my bag. There are loads of receipts, mostly from sushi restaurants; Fiji dollars; tiny marshmallows; a toothpick and tampons.” What else does the Dutch actress, dating actor Kees van Nieuwkerk, 27, toss in her Elliot Mann tote?

Cannes: New Incentives Boost Dutch Cinema and Filmmaking in the Netherlands

17 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Dutch film industry received a major boost last year with the introduction of the €20 million ($22.2 million)-a-year Netherlands Film Production Incentive.

Overseen by the Netherlands Film Fund, the country’s main film board, the incentive offers a 30% cash rebate on local spend for film productions in the country.

“The film fund has an outward-looking policy towards coproduction and makes a strong effort to stimulate both majority and minority Dutch co-productions,” says Netherlands Film Fund CEO Doreen Boonekamp.

Backed by the Ministry of Culture, the fund’s total 2015 funding budget is $54 million, with about $28 million slated for various funding initiatives, including the production incentive.

Boonekamp says of the 76 films produced in the Netherlands last year, 56, or 74%, were international co-productions.

The Netherlands’ efforts to support international collaborations have resulted in an increase of cross-border co-productions in recent years and received an additional boost with the introduction of the new production incentive scheme last year. »

‘Game of Thrones 5×04: Sons of the Harpy’ Review

6 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“I could say that our minds are temples to the Seven and should be kept pure, but the truth is, I don’t like the taste.”

Laws are what we make of them.  In the High Sparrow’s self-deprecating explanation as to why he doesn’t drink wine is a deeper, darker truth: we obey laws for our own reasons, reasons which often don’t touch on right or wrong.  ‘Sons of the Harpy’ is an episode concerned with what makes people tick, the manifold fallible motivations behind why we do what we do.

For Jaime, voyaging to Dorne with a skeptical Bronn in tow, it’s a chance at redemption and validation.  Robbed of his skills as a swordsman and of the love of his sister, a woman he killed for more than once, he’s desperate to see himself as useful.  When Bronn needles him, asking “Why not send forty of me, »

'Game of Thrones' Episode 5.04 Recap and Preview of Next Week

3 May 2015 10:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Tonight's new Game of Thrones episode, "The Sons of the Harpy", begins shortly after last week's "High Sparrow" left off, with Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) knocking out a fisherman to steal his boat, as he carries his new captive Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) aboard. We first saw Mormont for the first time all season in last week's episode, where he was drowning his sorrows at a pub, where he sees both Tyrion and Varys (Conleth Hill). What's interesting is, at the end of last week's episode, Mormont told Tyrion he was taking her to the Queen, which could either mean his former Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), or the new Queen of Westeros, Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). We don't get any answers in this first scene, though Jorah and Tyrion's journey has certainly begun.

We then catch up with Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who is on a journey of his »

Game of Thrones Star Dispels One Myth About Her Simpsons Guest Spot

1 May 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Carice van Houten (aka Game of Thrones‘ Melisandre) makes her Springfield debut on Sunday’s The Simpsons (Fox, 8/7c). But you don’t need to look into the flame to find out what will — and won’t — happen on her episode.

VideosKristen Wiig Channels Game of Thrones‘ Khaleesi During Tonight Show Interview

For starters, van Houten tells TVLine, don’t expect any Thrones references. “None at all,” she insists. “It’s a completely different thing.”

You can, however, expect to see her playing Milhouse’s Dutch cousin Annika, a character originally born out of a joke between van Houten and the writers. »

Game of Thrones: Season Five Ratings

15 April 2015 8:40 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

There's certainly no danger of this HBO series being cancelled. Game of Thrones has already been renewed through season six and it's the cable channel's most popular series. Last season's ratings were up by about 40%. Will the numbers continue to soar or will they slip? Stay tuned.

Based on the best-selling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Thrones is an epic story of treachery and nobility in a savage world -- a place where summers and winters can last for years and the lust for power is eternal.

The large cast includes Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Aidan Gillen, Natalie Dormer, Stephen Dillane, Liam Cunningham, Carice van Houten, Indira Varma, Alfie Allen, John Bradley-West, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Kristofer Hivju, Hannah Murray, Conleth Hill, Gwendoline Christie, Jerome Flynn, Michiel Huisman, Nathalie Emmanuel, Dean-Charles Chapman, Tom Wlaschiha, Iwan »

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 1 Review

13 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the first episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

The Wars to Come. Directed by Michael Slovis. Written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.  

Cersei

Season five opens on a flashback, the first one ever in Game of Thrones. These opening prologues have prized place in George R. R. Martin’s books, either introducing new characters or telling self-contained stories that become significant later on. They help ease you back into his gory, kinky world.

The flashback is Cersei’s (Lena Headey), who will become an even more central character in season five (the fourth book, on which her storyline in this series is based, is the first one with chapters written from her perspective). It shows a witch telling a young Cersei her future, that “another queen, younger and more beautiful” would replace her. Which explains all the Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) hate.

Game of Thrones Season 5 Cheat Sheet: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Deaths, Dragons and Turncoats

10 April 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Game of Thrones Season 5 begins this Sunday 12th April for those in the States, and in the UK the night after. We’ve come a long way since first meeting the Starks (survival rate: 5 out of 8) all the way back in Winterfell, a place now reduced to embers in the shows Sim City opening credits. New characters have been introduced. Those new characters have gone onto die. A lot’s happened.

With multiple main storylines, many interweaving subplots and each character going by at least four different names, the show can be difficult to follow at times, especially after a nine month break after Season 4 first aired last year. Here’s a character-by-character summary of the main players.

We begin with those unlucky Starks:

Arya Stark

Arya (Maisie Williams) has found herself become arguably Game of Thrones’ best character. Through season 2’s many duologue scenes with Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) in Harrenhal, »

'Game of Thrones': George R. R. Martin Won't Write a Season 6 Episode

28 March 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

George R.R. Martin is getting pretty serious about finishing his last two novels in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Just a few weeks back, the creator of Game of Thrones revealed the disappointing news that he will not be attending the World Fantasy Convention or Comic-Con 2015 so that he can finish working on his sixth book entitled The Winds of Winter. Now, the author says he isn't going to write an episode for Game of Thrones Season 6, either. He explains:

""[A]fter wrestling with it for a month or so, I've decided not to script an episode for season six of Game of Thrones. Writing a script takes me three weeks, minimum, and longer when it is not a straight adaptation from the novels. And really, it would cost me more time than that, since I have never been good at changing gears from one medium to another and back again. »

Cruise Performs Laugh-Out-Loud Stunts in MI5 Trailer (with Bonus Teaser)

24 March 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

Anthony Mackie to Star in Jesse Owens Project at Relativity

16 March 2015 6:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relativity is in talks to develop a biopic about American track and field hero Jesse Owens with Anthony Mackie attached to star.

It’s the third Owens movie in the works in Hollywood, following the completed “Race” at Focus and an untitled Owens project at Disney, based on the book “Triumph,” written Espn host Jeremy Schaap.

Owens, the son of an Alabama sharecropper, shattered Adolf Hitler’s myth of Aryan supremacy by winning a record four gold medals in the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash, the long jump and the 400-meter relay in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.

Hitler had insisted Jewish people and African-Americans not be allowed in the games, but relented when threatened with a boycott. He shook hands only with the German victors on the first day of competition and then skipped all further medal presentations.

Race” stars Stephan James opposite Jeremy Irons, Jason Sudeikis, Carice van Houten and William Hurt. »
