Pocket Sized But Full Flavor Ice and Fire for Japanese Game of Thrones Fans

22 hours ago | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Ah… Game of Thrones in Japanese on marble in the house. Almost better than the Robb Report right here. Perfect credit at the Iron Bank.

I’m thinking it may be time to do a reread of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire since HBO hasn’t blessed us yet with a off-season spin-off, even though I need Robert’s Rebellion or Dunk and Egg stat, nor has Martin delivered Winds of Winter yet.

Was anybody like me and years ago would find their way to George R. R. Martin‘s site and somehow through all of those navigation menus find yourselves in the cover gallery and just being in awe of all of the international covers adorning our A Song of Ice and Fire all around the world?

I have a bunch of editions of books from around the world, galleys/Arc’s, and »

Patrick Wachsberger talks franchises, highlights and Polanski

23 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: “We’re going through a sea change,” Lionsgate executive says of the film business today.

This Sunday, industry veteran and sales supremo Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, will be honoured at the Zurich Film Festival with the event’s Game Changer Award, which is bestowed on an individual who has been able to “successfully navigate through the aggressively changing entertainment landscape.”

Wachsberger’s more than 30-year navigation of those choppy waters has seen him play a pivotal role in two billion-dollar franchises, multiple Oscar and Palme d’Or campaigns and two of the industry’s most successful independent film companies of recent decades.

However, the film business is more unpredictable than ever claims the former Summit boss, who spoke to Screen shortly before the surprise news that fellow Lionsgate co-chair Rob Friedman is to leave the company.

Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen Mic Drop

21 September 2016 12:36 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I remember reading a book, the first book I’d ever review online, called Meditations on Middle on Earth, which was collection of essays from the who’s who cast of fantasy authors reflecting on The Lord of the Rings. When they read it, where they were, how it influenced them. Among them was Robin Hobb, who’d I also later interview, and she posed a question in her essay that was something to the effect of the thought of why even try (to write) something that has already been done at that level? I find myself, from the fan’s perspective, in a similar place. As a life long fan of epic fantasy, this guy, one Steven Erikson… he’s done it.

When I finished reading Steven Erikson’s The Crippled God I was hit with asoiafitis, that truly magical yearning of just having to go talk about what you just experienced. »

Annabelle 2 Trailer: The Doll Is Back

15 September 2016 1:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first look photo that director David F. Sandberg revealed yesterday, the first trailer for Annabelle 2 has arrived today. This trailer gives us our first look at Miranda Otto's character, along with a sneak peek at Annabelle's origins. We don't know when the first full trailer will arrive, but this footage hints that this follow-up could be just as terrifying as the original.

In Annabelle 2, several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker's possessed creation, Annabelle. Anthony Lapaglia (TV's Without a Trace) and Miranda Otto (Showtime's Homeland, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) play the dollmaker and his wife. The trailer debuted on Warner Bros. YouTube channel earlier today.

Annabelle 2 also stars Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman »

Annabelle 2 Announcement Trailer Reminds You Not to Play With Creepy Dolls

15 September 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

If you needed another reason to stay the Hell away from creepy looking dolls, the first teaser for Annabelle 2 has arrived to put a new spin on tea parties.  Come inside to check it out!

Annabelle, the spooky doll from The Conjuring which sparked it's own spin-off movie series makes her return in the first look at footage from Annabelle 2:

Annabelle has always been interesting to me, mostly because it has such an odd place within these movies.  The Conjuring really wasn't about the doll's possession, and despite the marketing focusing on it, only took up a little bit of screentime.  The first spin-off was...okay.  The plot was all over the place and aside from a few jump scares, felt all over the place. 

Obviously this first trailer for Annabelle 2 doesn't do much in terms of the film's plot, but it does a solid job »

‘Annabelle 2’ Teaser: ‘Lights Out’ Director David Sandberg Reminds Us That Creepy Dolls Are Still Scary

15 September 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If the movies have taught us anything, it’s that certain things will always be scary to huge swaths of viewers: clowns, children and, in the case of “Annabelle,” dolls. Part of James Wan’s ever-expanding horror umbrella, the film made nearly $256 million against a budget of just $5.6 million. A sequel was thus inevitable, and we now have a teaser for “Annabelle 2.” Watch it below.

Miranda Otto of “The Thin Red Line” and “The Lord of the Rings” stars in “Annabelle 2,” which is helmed by “Lights Out” director David Sandberg. Lasting just a minute and barely revealing anything, the clip (which is presumably more restrained than the actual film will be) shows Otto entering the room of a little girl hosting a tea party with two stuffed animals and a doll »

Press Release: From New Line Cinema comes “Annabelle 2,” with David F.

Review: Rose City Comic Con 2016

12 September 2016 2:04 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As I sit here looking at my iPad screen writing this, I think back on the past two days at the Rose City Comic Con and think “Damn, what experience in my life will ever top the fun I had this weekend?” This was the first Comic Convention I ever attended and damned if every other con to follow will have a lot to live up to.

  What struck me first was the atmosphere. From the moment I stepped off the Max train (the often times unreliable form of public transportation we in Portland rely upon) and walked to the entrance of Rccc, you felt an aura, for lack of a better term, of acceptance and joy. Folks of all shapes, sizes, and ages were dressed in their favorite characters, ready to show them off to not only the other convention goers but hopefully to some of the creators who »

New Thor: Ragnarok Costumes Revealed in Latest Set Photos

3 September 2016 4:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Since it began shooting on July 4 this summer, we've been inundated with a tsunami of Thor: Ragnarok set photos and behind-the-scenes video. Just a few weeks ago, we saw Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston traipsing around Brisbane, Australia, with the streets made up to look like New York City. The actors were draped in cloaks that protected their new superhero costumes from prying eyes. Now, more set photos give us a clear look at what kind of alternations have been made to these iconic getups.

It should come as no surprise that these Norse Gods are getting an upgraded look in Thor 3. With every Marvel movie comes a slight character revamp, helping to keep audiences interested and to sell more toys and action figures. Altering the costumes also allows the designers to figure out better ways to make these sometimes bulky suits of superhero armor more comfortable for the actor involved. »

The bigger they come: how to film an 'unfilmable' book

Can Philip Roth’s epic novel American Pastoral work as a film? Screenwriter Hossein Amini, who has taken on two ‘impossible novels’, reveals the secret to cracking the classics

The common wisdom in screenwriting is that bad novels make great movies and great novels turn into duds. I can think of plenty of arguments to disprove the theory, though – from The English Patient to Apocalypse Now (adapted from Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness), from La Confidential to The Age of Innocence, from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre to The Lord of the Rings.

Thor: Ragnarok Comic-Con Video Finally Arrives Online

28 August 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though it is more than a year away, fans are pretty excited about Thor: Ragnarok. And it promises to be the best installment in this particular Marvel standalone franchise. Though a trailer didn't premiere at Comic-Con, a hilarious spoof video featuring the stars of the movie did. Disney didn't release it at the time, but now everyone can see what Thor was up to while the rest of the Avengers were battling each other in&#160Marvel's Captain America: Civil War. This and other bonus features will be available when Civil War hits Digital HD this Friday.

This video shows Chris Hemsworth as Thor in a mockumentary that was directed by Thor: Ragnarok's Taika Waititi. Titled Civil War: Team Thor, the God of Thunder explains how he took some much needed 'Me Time'. It shows how he moved in and became roommates with a man named Darryl. It also has »

Horror Channel FrightFest 2016 Review – Pet (2016)

27 August 2016 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pet, 2016

Directed by Carles Torrens

Starring Dominic Monaghan, Ksenia Solo, Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Parsons, Janet Song

Synopsis:

A psychological thriller about a man who bumps into an old flame and subsequently becomes obsessed with her, leading him to hold her captive underneath the animal shelter where he works. But what will the victim have in store for her assailant?

The pure genius of Carles Torrens’s Pet is that it constantly plays with audience expectations. Just when you think you’ve got Pet all worked out, Jeremy Slater’s script pulls out the rug, creating one of the best cinematic and storytelling experiences of 2016.

Dominic Monaghan is almost unrecognisable since his days on Lost and The Lord of The Rings as the very troubled and lonely Seth and he brings so much to the character. Its a performance that is comparable to Ryan Reynolds in The Voices, but Monaghan does »

Ian McKellen rejected $1.5 million to dress as Gandalf for billionaire's wedding

22 August 2016 11:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There’s no shortage of celebrities who are willing to sell themselves out. Whether it’s for an infomercial, autograph signing or otherwise, the list goes on an on. But one celeb, Sir Ian McKellen, stared $1.5 million in the face and turned it down. The Daily Mail is reporting that McKellen was offered the whopping sum to dress up as his Lord of the Rings character, Gandalf, but said no, leaving his dignity in tact. “I was offered one-and-a-half million dollars to marry a very famous couple in California, which I would perhaps have considered doing but I had to go dressed as Gandalf,” McKellen told the Daily Mail. “So I said, ‘I am sorry, Gandalf doesn’t do weddings.’” That wedding was reportedly for Silicon Valley billionaire Sean Parker, one of the co-founders of Napster and the first president of Facebook. The 2013 nuptials were held in the woods of Big Sur, »
