Arya and Bran's Innocent Hug on Game of Thrones Might Have Devastating Implications

12 minutes ago

Over the course of a just a handful of season seven episodes, Bran Stark has officially become Westeros's biggest weirdo. Ok, Ok - being omniscient (or something close to it) probably takes a toll on the psyche, but what's the deal, man? Well, if the theory Redditor riffy61 recently posited ends up coming true, then Bran has way more than the Night's King and Westeros's impending doom on his mind; he's dealing with the potential death of one of his sisters. Let's back up: in the season's fourth episode, "The Spoils of War," Arya makes her grand return to Winterfell and has a happy reunion with both of her siblings, Bran and Sansa. When she hugs Bran out by the Weirwood tree, their embrace is still a little cold thanks to Bran's new, stilted demeanor, but it's markedly more human than the hug he and Sansa share in the previous episode. »

"We're All Queens in Our Own Queendoms" - Noomi Rapace on Women Kicking Ass at the Movies

17 minutes ago

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - days of the week, sure, but also cinema's latest female ass-kickers du jour in What Happened to Monday, Netflix's brutal, bloody sci-fi romp starring Noomi Rapace. The Swedish actress stars in the streaming network's dystopian action flick, out Aug. 18, as identical septuplets named after each day of the week. All seven sisters have grown up living in hiding thanks to the government's law restricting families to one child only due to overpopulation, so their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) allows them out of the house only on the day corresponding with their name. They're able to maintain one public identity through adulthood, until a government agency led by the steely Glenn Close picks up on the scam. Monday doesn't return home after her day out, and soon enough her sisters savagely work their way through a long line of agents (and end up »

15 Ways You and Your Friends Can Be Lizzie McGuire Characters For Halloween

52 minutes ago

There are so many nostalgic Disney Channel costumes to choose from for Halloween, but some of the greatest inspiration comes from Lizzie McGuire. Not only was Hilary Duff our role model growing up, but the show was also full of some crazy fashion statements that are still iconic more than 15 years later. Yes, it's really been that long since the series premiered. Remember when Lizzie performed in front of hundreds of people at the Colosseum with an Italian superstar? What about simpler times when Miranda dyed Kate's hair a horrible shade of green? If you love (and miss) the show just as much as we do, pay tribute to your favorite characters by re-creating some of those iconic moments on Oct. 31.

Justin Bieber's "Friends" Will Make You Want to Pick Up the Phone and Call Your Ex

2 hours ago

Less than a month after canceling the remaining dates of his Purpose world tour, Justin Bieber is back with new music. On Thursday, Justin released his new single, "Friends," with producer BloodPop, and trust us, you'll be playing it on repeat for the rest of the Summer. Not only is the track super catchy, but with lyrics like "So I'm wondering, can we still be friends?" and "Wonderin' if you think about me," we can't help but wonder if he's talking about his ex Selena Gomez. We'll let you decide. RelatedWhat Is 2017's Official Song of the Summer? Let's Decide, Once and For All »

Why Cersei's Pregnancy Announcement Holds the Key to How She'll Die on Game of Thrones

3 hours ago

Spoilers for Game of Thrones below! When Cersei Lannister shares her "good" news with Jaime that she's pregnant again during the tense fifth episode of Game of Thrones' seventh season, it's safe to say that plenty of jaws dropped (including Jaime's). While some fans are grossed out by the idea of another potential baby Joffrey (and the incest involved to create him or her), others doubt there's a pregnancy at all - it would be so like Cersei to play Jaime like that. While both of those points of view are valid in their own way, there's a third option to consider: Cersei is indeed pregnant, but the baby will be what finally kills her. When Cersei's prophecy is first revealed in season five, a young Cersei is warned about the misery that awaits her by a witch named Maggy the Frog. "Everyone wants to know their future, until they know their future, »

Aug. 17, 2017 marks a decade since the release of Superbad, which is insane in itself.

This Service Lets You Go to All the Movies You Want For Only $10, and AMC Is Furious

5 hours ago

Image Source: Everett Collection Sick of paying an arm and a leg and promising to hand over your first-born child just to go to the movie theater these days? You're not alone. Thankfully, MoviePass is here to help. The startup, which has been around since 2011 and is led by Netflix cofounder and former Red Box executive Mitch Lowe, has made it possible for you to go to all of the movies you want in a month for one low fee. Sounds like a Joanne the Scammer-level trap? Yeah, we thought so, too. MoviePass originally offered subscribers the service to see one movie per day (if they were so inclined) for $30 a month, but now it's dropped its fee to a paltry $9.95 (which excludes 3D and IMAX films). For people who live in big cities where movie tickets reach as high as $15 or $16 for a single ticket, this would be an incredible money-saver. »

George R.R. Martin's Original Game of Thrones Pitch Hints at Another Stark Death

5 hours ago

Big ol' Game of Thrones spoilers below! Gruesome deaths and Game of Thrones go together like HBO and leaked episodes, but the latest spoilers have come from a surprising source: George R.R. Martin himself. The original 1993 pitch for the author's A Song of Ice and Fire series has been uncovered, and it could hold the key to which of the show's beloved characters make it out of season seven (and season eight, for that matter) alive and well. As Mashable points out, Martin's three-page letter to his agent actually first surfaced in 2015 when British bookstore Waterstones tweeted out photos of it, before the account quickly took them down. Luckily, Reddit user TheNextRobin was able to screenshot the images before they were deleted and subsequently shared them on Reddit themselves. In the letter, Martin wrote that "five central characters" - Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, Arya Stark, Bran Stark, and Jon Snow »

Can We Discuss How Terrifying the Halloween Episode of Boy Meets World Is?

6 hours ago

We all remember key moments in our childhood - big birthdays, first crushes, Summer vacations - but one thing that continuously stands out in my mind as a defining moment is the Scream-inspired episode of Boy Meets World, "And Then There Was Shawn." It first aired in February 1998 and wasn't even intended as a Halloween episode, but I didn't see it until one chilly Fall day in 2001. I had just gotten home from school, was all by myself, and was planning on doing my homework while watching the Disney Channel. But shortly after the episode began to play, I abandoned my homework and started closing all the curtains and locking all the doors. The storyline of a crazed psycho going on a killing spree in an abandoned school not only kept me up at night for weeks to come, but it also made me fear one of the places I always felt safe. »

The True Story Behind the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Is Way More Disturbing Than the Movie

21 hours ago

Tobe Hooper's 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is one of cinema's Og horror classics and a must see for any scary movie aficionado. Given how stomach-churning a lot of the scenes in the gory slasher can be, it's hard to imagine that the film's story has any root in reality. Unfortunately, like a lot of movies and TV shows out there, a real-life serial killer served as inspiration for the movie's chainsaw-wielding villain, Leatherface. While a family of cannibalistic hillbillies who prey on unsuspecting teenagers is luckily not part of the original story (that we know of), the idea for Leatherface came out of the case of murderer Edward Theodore "Ed" Gein, also known as the Butcher of Plainfield. He is suspected to have killed several victims between the years of 1954 and 1957 and remains one of the most disturbing and notorious serial killers in history. The Origin of »

This Fact About That Elvis Presley Scene in Forrest Gump Will Blow Your Mind

22 hours ago

We're willing to bet that you know Forrest Gump like the back of your hand. The movie is packed with memorable moments, iconic quotes, and that one heartbreaking couple (Forrest and Jenny forever). But one thing you might not know? Kurt Russell is actually in the movie. While his face doesn't appear on screen, his voice certainly does for just a few precious seconds. Russell reportedly voiced Elvis Presley during the scene where a young Forrest is showing the musician his dance moves while he's staying in the Gump home. It's never been 100 percent confirmed, and his role was never credited, but it's so obvious that it's him once you watch the scene again. Another fun fact: Russell also played Elvis in the 1979 film of the same name, so he knows a thing or two about the King's voice. Check out the above scene from Forrest Gump to have your mind blown! »

Who Is Cersei's Baby Daddy on Game of Thrones? An Investigation

22 hours ago

The following contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season seven. We always go into episodes of Game of Thrones expecting some weirdness, but even we were thrown for a loop when Cersei Lannister casually announces her pregnancy halfway through season seven. Um, what? Between building dragon arrows and torturing her enemies to death, when did she even have time to conceive a child? Sure, this season's timeline has been weird, but we're unsure whether it's been long enough for Cersei to discover an unplanned pregnancy. The news also perturbed us because, as weird as their romance is, Cersei and Jaime have spent plenty of time apart during the seventh season. They've definitely had some time together, but he has also gone off to fight in two different battles in season seven, too. Could the baby be somebody else's, or even not exist at all? Or perhaps their timing was just right. »

The Reason Sam Is So Sure That Bran Is Telling the Truth on Game of Thrones

16 August 2017 2:15 PM, PDT

While originally conceived as the bumbling, well-intentioned Bff of Jon Snow, Samwell Tarly has steadily become an integral character on Game of Thrones. In season seven alone, we've seen him do everything from scrape poop out of chamber pots and unearth a game-changing location of dragonglass to bravely (and disgustingly) cure Ser Jorah Mormont's greyscale at the Citadel. In the season's fifth episode, "Eastwatch," Sam puts his newfound knowledge (and courage) to the test when he stands up to a group of maesters disparaging the veracity of a devastatingly important note sent to them from Winterfell. The note's author, Bran Stark, who's finally back home and acting like a total weirdo, warns the maesters that the Night's King and his army of wights are getting dangerously close to Westeros. "A crippled boy claims to have seen dead men on the march beyond the Wall, thanks to the magical help of a raven with three eyes, »
