"...in "Game of Thrones" Season 7, the three 'Stark' sisters will reunite in a touching and emotional scene.

"Despite the happy reunion between 'Arya', 'Sansa' and 'Bran', the women will experience a conflict over ruling the 'North'.

"'Petry Littlefinger Baelish' (Aidan Gillen) will also take advantage of the situation to further drive a wedge between the Stark sisters' relationship.

Rooney Mara’s Una returns to remind Ben Mendelsohn’s Ray of the worst thing he’s ever done in the intense first trailer for Una. Watch the trailer for the acclaimed film below…

Several months ago, Una made its debut at the Telluride Film Festival, followed by subsequent screenings at the Toronto International and BFI London Film Festivals. Critics described the movie as a disturbing and difficult thriller that is well worth seeking out and praised the performances of both Mara and Mendelsohn.

With Una, Australian theater director Benedict Andrews makes his directorial film debut; the project is adapted from David Harrower’s 2005 play Blackbird.

The rest of the cast includes Tobias Menzies, »
