History's 'Vikings' will pillage again in February 2015

16 December 2014 10:25 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A month after setting a nebulous February 2015 premiere for its latest invasion, History's "Vikings" now has a specific premiere date. Season 3 of "Vikings" will hit the shore on Thursday, February 19 at 10 p.m. The 10-episode season will follow up on Ragnar's elevation to King and will find the scruffy Norsemen taking aim at a little French city known as Paris. In addition to Travis Fimmel, Clive Standen, Kathryn Winnick and Replacement Bjorn Alexander Ludwig (and others), the new season will be bringing back Linus Roache's Ecbert and introducing a slew of new characters. "Lost" and "The Strain" veteran Kevin Durand will play Harbard, a wanderer who shows up in Kattagat and fills in for the absent Viking men. Ben Robson will play Kalf, new second-in-command to Lagertha. And on the French side of the story, Lothaire Bluteau will play Emperor Charles, with Morgane Polanski as his daughter Gisla. As always, »

Paul Risker chats with Vikings star Alexander Ludwig

As part of a special week long feature to coincide with the home entertainment release of Vikings series 2, Flickering Myth sits down in conversation with the cast and creator Michael Hirst to go behind the scenes of the critically acclaimed historical drama.

From the reflections of two onscreen brothers [Travis Fimmel and Clive Standen], Alexander Ludwig a.k.a. Bjorn reflects on joining the cast in series 2 and playing Ragnar’s son…

Paul Risker: Going into season two you are taking over a role that has been played by a younger actor (Nathan O’Toole). Did that present any challenges?

Alexander Ludwig: It has its challenges. I thought that Nathan did such a great job and I was obviously very happy to be a part of the show. But I also loved his character as a child and so it was bittersweet.

I definitely wanted to »

Alexander Ludwig and Ser’Darius Blain Talk Drills, Tears & Tires in When The Game Stands Tall, Vikings Season 3, and More

23 August 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Based on the true story of the longest winning streak in high-school football, When The Game Stands Tall focuses on how the historic team deals with loss both professional and personal. Anchoring the team-side of the film, young actors Alexander Ludwig and Ser’Darius Blain do much of the emotional heavy lifting, Blain as a former star-player struggling to move on & Ludwig as the current running back whose personal life threatens to derail his high-school career. It’s a film with just as many tears as snaps – and both Ludwig & Blain are just as convincing in the hard-hitting football scenes as they are in the off-the-field personal drama. In the following interview with Ludwig and Blain, the duo discuss getting to the heart of their many emotionally raw scenes, the intense football training process and their various upcoming projects (for Ludwig – the 3rd season of Vikings & for Blain – the docudrama Bolden, »

Film Review: ‘When the Game Stands Tall’ a Sermonizing Snooze

22 August 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “When The Game Stands Tall” has more sermons than a month of Sundays. Its heart is in the right place, but it’s more likely to put its audience to sleep than bring it to its feet. By now the tropes of the inspirational sports drama have become as familiar as the West Coast Offense, but this film can’t effectively figure out how to execute them.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

The drama itself has the bones of a good story. A high school football team amasses the longest winning streak in sports history, and then has its true character tested when that streak is broken. “Passion Of The Christ” star Jim Caviezel is playing a slightly worldlier messiah here – he plays football coach Bob Ladouceur with a calm demeanor that borders on comatose. Caviezel’s coach doesn’t yell or scream at his players, but he stalks the field relentlessly, and »

Exclusive Video Interview With The Cast Of When The Game Stands Tall

22 August 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When The Game Stands Tall, based on the non-fiction book by Neil Hayes, tells the story of the De La Salle High School football team and their record-setting winning streak of 151 games. Their coach, Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel), aims to teach his players more about life than just winning football games, and he’s aided throughout by his assistant coach Terry Eidson (Michael Chiklis).

The movie begins at the height of the team’s winning streak and its soul crushing end, and we watch as the players slowly rebuild their shattered confidence. But for Bob, he is forced to deal with his own mortality when he suffers a heart attack, which puts his coaching career and the team’s sterling reputation in jeopardy.

The press day for When The Game Stands Tall recently took place in Los Angeles and while there, we got to talk not only with Jim Caviezel and Michael Chiklis, »

Alexander Ludwig: "When The Game Stands Tall is a Metaphor for Life"

22 August 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Many of the greatest sports films all have one thing in common: they aren't just about sports. When the Game Stands Tall is a movie based on a true story that chronicles what happens when a high school football team loses its 151 winning streak. The gripping football sequences coupled with emotional layers in the film make this movie more than just a simple underdog sports film. Under the watchful eyes of Coaches Bob Ladouceur and Terry Eidson, the players concentrate on making the perfect effort and becoming men of character.

"I wasn't interested in making a movie just about football," says director Thomas Carter. "The whole thing that attracted me and what De La Salle's program is about is who are these kids are going to be as young men when they come out of the program. What values and sense of personal responsibility are they going to have? Those »

When The Game Stands Tall – The Review

21 August 2014 6:41 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Once again it’s game time at the multiplex. Now, we’re not talking about flicks based on popular video games or even board games (you may remember it, but Hollywood still wants to forget Battleship). Nope we’re about to see another look at, perhaps, this country’s second favorite national past time. The first would still be baseball and early this Summer Million Dollar Arm gave it an international twist to mostly mediocre box office. We’re nearing the end of August so most sports buffs are getting revved up for the return of football. Earlier in the year we got a spirited look behind the scenes at the business side of the NFL with Ivan Reitman’s Draft Day (which echoed that baseball biz hit from a few years ago Moneyball). But this new flick doesn’t concern itself with big contracts and agents. Like previous hits »

Film Review: ‘When the Game Stands Tall’

20 August 2014 10:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The religion of high-school football commingles with plain old-fashioned religion in “When the Game Stands Tall,” an inspirational sports drama (from Sony’s in-house, faith-based label Affirm Films) that goes long on rectitudinous sermonizing but comes up short on gridiron thrills or genuine love for the game. Save for a couple of fine performances relegated to the sidelines, no one really brings their “A” game to this lazily executed late-summer programmer a “Friday Night Lights” for the Sunday School crowd graced by little of the storytelling craft and skillful emotional manipulation that have distinguished the recent wave of superior Disney sports pics. After an opening weekend that may see a bump from church group sales, expect “Game” to do most of its rushing and passing on home screens.

Like most entries in this particular genre, “When the Game Stands Tall” traffics in the usual tropes of scrappy heroes and come-from-behind victories — except that, »

Stand Tall's Alexander Ludwig & Michael Chiklis Say Hollywood Expects a Success Streak

9 August 2014 8:39 PM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

When the Game Stands Tall is a movie based on the real-life high school football team, the Spartans. After losing their streak of 151 games won in a row, the players learn important life lessons from Coaches Bob Ladouceur and Terry Eidson—and through the making of the movie, the cast learned a couple of lessons as well.

Michael Chiklis, who plays Eidson in the film, can relate to the pressure of a winning streak, especially as an actor in the ever-competitive world of Hollywood. "There are clichés such as 'You're only as good as you last hit,' so yes you feel a level of pressure. They're clichés because there's a level of truth to them," says Chiklis. "But when all's said and done, you have to have clarity. You have to say, 'This is what I do, this is who I am, and what I want to do is tell great stories. »

Jim Caviezel Has a ‘Hoosiers’ Moment with ‘When the Game Stands Tall’

5 August 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Teamwork was at the top of everyone’s mind Monday as the cast and creators – and real-life inspiration of “When the Game Stands Tall” arrived at the ArcLight for the film’s premiere. Inspired by the true story of football coach Bob Ladouceur, the De La Salle High School Spartans and their legendary 151-game winning streak, the film takes viewers off the field and into the lives of the players and Coach Lad, as his players lovingly call him.

“It’s such a great story about what it is to be on a real sports team,” said Matthew Daddario, who plays Danny Ladouceur, the son of the coach. “I don’t think I’ll ever be part of a project that is quite as meaningful to my life. This is a very special story.”

Comic-Con: Katheryn Winnick and Alexander Ludwig Talk Vikings Season 3, Filming in Ireland, Love Triangles, and More

31 July 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last weekend at Comic-Con I was able to sit down for a roundtable interview with Vikings actors Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha) and Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn Ironside) to discuss the events that happened in Season 2 and what is coming up for them in Vikings Season 3.  The actors discussed what it is like filming on set on Northern Ireland, love triangles, what it is like for Winnick now that she is a woman in a position of power in a medieval setting, and what is in store for Bjorn’s future.  Hit the jump for what they had to say. Question: Can you talk a little but about Lagertha’s look? She’s got a very specific look for this season. Katheryn Winnick: It’s funny because when I first started the season, I was talking to the head of the hair department, and I wanted to create a hairstyle for Lagertha that’s very unique, »

Watch: ‘Vikings’ Season 3 Trailer Shows More Violence

27 July 2014 5:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If the first trailer for season three of History’s “Vikings,” released at Comic-Con, is any indication, fans can look forward to plenty more blood and brutal battles to keep them intrigued.

At the end of season two of the Norse drama, Ragnar Lothbrok, played by Travis Fimmel, had taken Horik’s spot as King of the Danes. One of his next stops now is Paris, which he’ll raid and where he’ll go up against King Charles.

Adding to the eerie tone of the trailer is the voiceover of John Kavanagh, who plays the blind seer.

Along with Fimmel, Katheryn Winnick is returning as Lagertha. Clive Standen, Alexander Ludwig and Gustaf Skarsgard also star. Michael Hirst created the historical drama.

Though an exact air date has yet to be confirmed, the series is eying an early 2015 return.
