Finn Jones Pitches His ‘Defenders’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ Characters Against Each Other

17 August 2017 1:39 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Finn Jones (Danny Rand, a.k.a. Iron Fist) caught up with TheWrap ahead of the release of Netflix’s latest foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “The Defenders,” to talk about being part of two of TV’s hottest shows. Jones is probably best known for his role as Loras Tyrell, brother to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer), on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” But since Loras and his sister (spoiler!) died at the end of Season 6, Jones has been keeping himself plenty busy as a young New York superhero. Jones opened up about how his “Defenders” character, Danny, will fit in with more seasoned. »

‘Game of Thrones’: 6 Signs That Cersei Is Turning Into Her Brat Joffrey

2 August 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) may have moved up in the world, but she seems to have regressed when it comes to her personality. In fact, day by day, she starts to resemble another spoiled and power-hungry despot that we’ve seen on “Game of Thrones” before: Her late son, Joffrey (Jack Gleeson).

This would explain so much, though. While her kids Myrcella and Tommen were kind of sweet (perhaps taking after Jaime, who is a fool for love and shows signs of a conscience), Joffrey was the bad egg, rotten to the core, and without any redeeming qualities. At the time, he had seemed like an anomaly, the twisted result of the DNA lottery that comes with inbreeding. But now that Cersei the Queen Mother has become the sole monarch, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of Westeros, she’s been exhibiting signs that make it clear »

Roger Moore’s Son Geoffrey Filming Satirical Documentary ‘And the Winner Isn’t’ (Exclusive)

1 August 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roger Moore’s son, Geoffrey, and granddaughter, Ambra, are filming a satirical documentary “And the Winner Isn't,” exploring what it takes to win an Oscar.

The documentary is dedicated to Roger Moore, which died in May. The film will serve as a promotional vehicle for the song “U N I,” composed and produced by Geoffrey for Unicef to raise funds for the charity. Roger Moore was a Goodwill Ambassador for Unicef for nearly 30 years.

“I promised him before he died that we would complete this movie,” Moore told Variety.

The song highlights the unnecessary suffering of children around the world and emphasizes how charitable actions can stop it from happening.

“My father had a great sense of humor so the documentary is very sardonic,” Moore noted. “We both believed that humor is a great way to make a serious point. He was very dedicated to Unicef and the notion of using his good fortune for good »

Amazon Moves Into Self-Distribution With Woody Allen’s ‘Wonder Wheel’ (Exclusive)

27 July 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amazon is moving into self-distributing its own movies, putting it on the path to becoming a full-fledged film studio.

The company will release Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel” without bringing in a distribution partner. The film opens in theaters on Dec. 1, 2017, and is expected to be an Oscar contender.

Amazon began buying and producing films in 2015, working with filmmakers such as Whit Stillman and Spike Lee, and earning Academy Awards for last year’s “Manchester By the Sea” and “The Salesman.” However, it has relied on independent studios such as Bleecker Street, Roadside Attractions, and Lionsgate to bring its film to theaters.

Amazon Acquires Natalie Dormer Series “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” Larysa Kondracki to Direct

21 July 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Natalie Dormer in “Game of Thrones

Margaery Tyrell is making her way to Amazon. Deadline reports that the streaming service has picked up “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” a six-episode Australian period drama toplined by “Game of Thrones” alumna Natalie Dormer. The re-imagining of Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel is being overseen “The Whistleblower” helmer Larysa Kondracki, who also directed the pilot and two other episodes of the mystery. Beatrix Christian (“Jindabyne”) is credited as script producer and establishing writer, and Alice Addison (“The Hunter”) penned the series.

Scheduled for a 2018 premiere on Amazon Prime Video Us, “Picnic at Hanging Rock” sees Dormer playing English headmistress Mrs. Hester Appleyard, “a woman whose dead husband instructs her daily life and whose peculiarities are surely hiding dark skeletons,” Deadline summarizes. The series “chronicles the mysterious disappearances of three schoolgirls and one teacher on Valentine’s Day 1900. The complex, interwoven narrative follows the subsequent investigation and the event’s far-reaching impact on the students, families, and staff of Appleyard College, and on the nearby township.”

The supporting cast includes Yael Stone (“Orange is the New Black”), Lily Sullivan (“Camp”), and Madeleine Madden (“Tomorrow When the War Began”).

Picnic at Hanging Rock” hails from distributor FremantleMedia International.

“The stylish re-imagining of the provocative ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ story will no doubt capture contemporary audiences across the U.S.,” said Caroline Kusser, Svp, Sales & Distribution for FremantleMedia International in North America. “With fantastic scripts, outstanding cast, and bold editorial direction from Larysa Kondracki, ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ is set to be a must-see series in 2018. We are thrilled to be working with Amazon Prime Video to bring this powerful drama to U.S. screens.”

The show’s world premiere will be on Foxtel in Australia sometime in 2018.

Amanda Brotchie (“Girlboss”) is also among the series’ directors.

Kondracki has helmed episodes of many high-profile series including “Power,” “Legion,” “Better Call Saul,” “Halt and Catch Fire,” “The Americans,” and “The Walking Dead.” When we asked what advice she’d give other female directors, Kondracki responded, “Don’t think too hard about it. You aren’t a ‘female director.’ You’re a director. Just do it.”

Best known for her role on “Game of Thrones,” Dormer’s other credits include “The Tudors,” “Elementary,” and the “Hunger Games” franchise. “It was refreshing to play a character who wasn’t defined by a love entanglement or a marital ambition. She is there because she the best at her job,” she said of her character in the latter, Cressida.

Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 1 Review: Here We Go!

17 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Let's take a step back in memory lane, shall we?

In the last season of Game of Thrones, Cersei (Lena Headey) came out on top, when not only did she kill one of my favorite female characters on the show, Margaery Tyrell, played by Natalie Dormer, but Cersei destroyed her entire religious fanatic opposition. That green Wildfire is a b&$%h, and I have a feeling that we will see more of it.

We also later got introduced to a fiery young woman -- age 12? -- that leads the Mormonts, and convinced everyone that Jon Snow is the true king of the north. She actually is the best thing going on the show right now. She is almost as convincing as Dany in such a tiny body. Aside from recapping the entire show, this is where we are at, so let's hop into the review for the Season 7 premiere.

First, »

Because you have eyes and have ostensibly visited the Internet at some point in the last year, you probably are aware that Jon Snow survived his Season 5 beat-down. But how? And what happened next? Did Daenerys ever make it home? »

Phoebe Waller-Bridge now bookmakers’ favourite for the next Doctor in Doctor Who

11 July 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Peter Capaldi set to make his exit from Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas Special, the speculation as to who will be the next actor to take on the iconic role of the Time Lord is really heating up.

Although Death Valley star Kris Marshall was widely tipped to have already secured the role of the Thirteenth Doctor, we now have a new bookies’ favourite in Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, while Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum) and Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones) have both entered the betting after an influx of bets pointing towards the first ever female Doctor.

“A female Doctor Who definitely looks to be in the making as women dominate the betting after a massive reshuffle off the back of Peter Capaldi filming his final scenes as the time lord,” said Aoife Heffron of BoyleSports. “When the news broke that Capaldi would be stepping down as Doctor Who, »

Is there anything Jon Snow can’t do? First he rises from the dead, now he wants to play every part on the show. Kit Harington, who plays the late Ned Stark’s bastard son on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” stopped by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ to show off his superior acting skills. Turns out, the King of the North has quite a knack for comedy.

Kimmel introduced the clip as “the exclusive, never-before-seen Kit Harington screen tests,” adding that before he was Jon Snow, “he actually auditioned for a couple of other characters on the show.” First up? Cersei Lannister, which Harington mispronounces with the confidence of a man who would willingly chase after a throng of zombies.
