Charles Dance Plays Coy About His Future On 'Game of Thrones'

19 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Spoilers ahead for "Game of Thrones" season four.

Charles Dance's loathsome character Tywin Lannister found himself in a rather awkward position at the end of last season.

To be clear, being murdered by your son while you're sitting on whatever makeshift contraption serves as a toilet in Westeros is a bad way to go, even for a jerk like Tywin. Or, as the dapper Dance says, "a suitably ignominious end." Especially given that the murderer - his very own son, Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), whom Tywin loathed since his wife Joanna died giving birth to Tyrion.

Dance, who plays some unholy cave creature in the Luke Evans actioner "Dracula Untold," couldn't help but divulge a few details when asked if he would be bummed about not being on the show in the future.

"Well, I'm not completely missing out on the next series. More than that I'm not going to say, »

18 September 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Universal Pictures has released two new clips from the impressive looking Luke Evans film Dracula Untold. I swear, the more I see of this movie the better it looks. They seem to have really nailed down a solid story for this that is full of cool looking action, intense drama, and intrigue. 

Both of the clips are entertaining and worth checking out. The first is called "Mehmet Taunts Vlad" and the second is called "Vlad Reveals What He's Become." I've also included a very cool looking IMAX poster. The movie hits theaters on October 10th.

Go Batty For A Brand New Clip From ‘Dracula Untold’

15 September 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We all wait in anticipation for the Gary Shore directed, and Luke Evans starring Dracula Untold, which heads to cinemas on the 3rd of October. The film tells the story of the origins of the legendary Dracula, played here by Fast And Furious 6 star Evans. While we absolutely bloody love Mr. Evans and his work in the brilliant ‘Hobbit’ movies, and even Tamara Drewe, we’re a little hesitant about this as the history of bringing of old monster movies to modern audiences haven’t been that successful (we’re thinking Van Helsing, the recent I, Frankenstein rubbish).

Dominic Cooper, Sarah Gadon and Charles Dance also star in Dracula Untold, so big thumbs up in terms of casting…

Watch a brand new clip from the film below.

New Clip and Poster for 'Dracula Untold'

15 September 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

With a PG-13 rating, I can't lie and say I'm expecting anything from Dracula Untold, Universal's clear attempt at starting a generic franchise based on Bram Stoker's Dracula, focusing on a young Vlad the Impaler (Luke Evans) who, when the lives of his wife and child are put in danger by a bloodthirsty sultan, risks his soul to save them, and in the process becomes the first vampire. The pic is slated for an October 10 release and the first clip and a new poster have just come online and it's clearly going for that glossy, modern CGI look all of these disposable, would-be franchise starters aim for, and I'm sure there will be some big battle in the end, a conflict of character, and a whole plotline with Vlad struggling with his now immortal soul and what it means for his family. »

Batty IMAX Poster for 'Dracula Untold'

15 September 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Perhaps you don't know the tale of Vlad Tepes, the first Dracula. Maybe you're just frustrated with me for referring to vampires as Draculas, or implying that it was Vlad not Lilith who was the first vampire.

Dracula Untold will make it's argument for it's status as the Dracula origin story we never knew we wanted with Luke Evans as Vlad. A deal must be made with dark forces to save his family and his kingdom from the conqueror Mehmed, portrayed by Dominic Cooper.

All I know for sure is that until Batman V. Superman comes along, the Dracula Untold IMAX poster will satiate your thirst for gritty bat-based posters.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Banner Lays Out the Final Stand

15 September 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A brand new The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies banner has been released, detailing the epic scope of the final film in director Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy.  This banner reminds of the one that was released for An Unexpected Journey before the adaptation was turned into a trilogy, which gave us a look at how this series would have been structured as a diptych.  Judging by this massive banner for Five Armies, Jackson plans on going out with a bang in his final foray into Middle-earth, but I’ll always wonder if this adaptation might’ve been more compelling if the director had stuck to two films.  Forget the extended edition Blu-rays, I’d love to see an abridged version that cuts the trilogy into two movies. Anyway, hit the jump to take a look at the ginormous The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies banner. »
