Nine Game Of Thrones Characters Revealed

26 July 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Every year, HBO’s high fantasy series Game of Thrones adds a bevy of new characters, and the show’s upcoming fifth season will be no different. At Comic-Con yesterday, the premium cable network announced the casting of actors in nine key roles. The list includes a recasting of Myrcella Baratheon (Cersei’s daughter, last seen being carted off to Dorne for her own protection way back in season 2) and the addition of the High Sparrow, an important character who becomes a big part of King’s Landing next season. Other roles include multiple inhabitants of the kingdom of Dorne, homeland of the ill-fated Oberyn Martell.

The full list of new characters, and the actors portraying them, is as follows:

The High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce, Brazil) – “A devout and pious man, the High Sparrow came to King’s Landing to serve those forgotten by much of the world – the poor, »

9 New Cast Members Join 'Game Of Thrones' Season 5; Plus Watch A Newly Released Blooper Reel From Comic-Con

25 July 2014 4:11 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The fifth season of “Game Of Thrones” is about to get underway any minute now and the fast-working HBO show is already scheduled for an April 2015 premiere. The show works at a rather break-neck pace, and so while production is set to begin any moment now (and some of the cast was at Comic-Con today), naturally, the new members of the cast have been announced. And there are nine new members to the ever expanding troupe. Perhaps the most notable are Jonathan Pryce and Alexander Siddig, the former being the Welsh actor and star of Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil” among many other notable roles including the villain in 1997 Bond movie "Tomorrow Never Dies" and the president opposite Madonna in “Evita” (1996). He’s also been part of the “Pirates Of the Caribbean” franchise and if you want to see a late-era comeback, you must see his terrific performance in the Sundance »

Some were actually! Whale Rider's Keisha Castle-Hughes will indeed play Obara Sand, and newcomer Nell Tiger Free will take over as Myrcella Baratheon. The rest of the new cast are surprises...some very pleasant one. The biggest names on the list are Jonathan Pryce (Pirates Of The Caribbean, Brazil) and Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine). Here they all are introducing themselves and their characters, along with the official press release from HBO. Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell.

His father betrothed him to Myrcella Baratheon as part of the alliance offered by Tywin Lannister, »

New 'Fury', 'Sin City 2', 'Zero Theorem' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Posters

23 July 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Several new posters have been released recently and I'll begin with the above banner for David Ayer's Fury (click for full size), which clearly has the makings of three separate posters so I separated them and offer larger looks directly below. Featured front and center is obviously Brad Pitt as Wardaddy, leader of the World War II tank crew and he's joined here by Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Josh Bernthal and Shia Labeouf. Fury is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. The film hits theaters on November 14, check out the individual posters below. »

Fantasia 2014: ‘The Zero Theorem’ undermines its satire with muddy ideology and philosophy

22 July 2014 11:13 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Zero Theorem

Written by Pat Rushin

Directed by Terry Gilliam

UK/Romania/USA/France, 2013

Stop me if you’ve heard this one already: a low-level cog in a comically large bureaucratic environment in a grotesque-looking “future” dystopia struggles in the face of obsolescence and oblivion. The character in question is fundamentally good, but incredibly weedy, their resolve and spirit having been ground to stumps by the world around them. People come in and out of the protagonist’s surroundings either to goad them into just rolling with the Orwellian punches, or to pull them out of a tight spot in a bizarre or humorous way. The ‘hero’ also creates elaborate fantasies and ideas to inhabit as a coping mechanism. If this sounds familiar, that’s because these broad plot points describe Terry Gilliam’s towering 1985 bad-vibes masterpiece Brazil. It also more or less describes his latest, The Zero Theorem, »

DVD Review: 'The Zero Theorem'

22 July 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆The latest mind-bending science fiction fantasy feature from American animator and director Terry Gilliam, The Zero Theorem (2013) depicts an admirable quest for higher meaning in the digital age, playing like a sadder B-side to 1985's Brazil. Detractors of the former Python's peculiar brand of fantastical whimsy will not find anything to convert them to the cause, but fans will find the picture to be a welcome compendium of his work to date. Gilliam, essentially a genre unto himself, mines his favourite thematic concerns, albeit with a modern slant. While it's unfair to call such an imaginative work predictable, there is a niggling sense that Gilliam is firmly operating within his comfort zone.

Blu-ray Review – The Zero Theorem (2013)

21 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Zero Theorem, 2013.

Directed by Terry Gilliam.

Starring Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw and Tilda Swinton.

Synopsis:

A computer hacker whose goal is to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; namely, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.

Terry Gilliam’s career as director has produced a filmography of varied result, from the highs of a modern classic like Brazil to total misfires in the shape of The Brothers Grimm and Tideland, but one thing has always been guaranteed; he has a unique sense for storytelling and an eye for visuals unlike anyone else. As such, The Zero Theorem is everything we could want from a Terry Gilliam film and much more; it’s one the year’s best films.

The story is a familiar one but has that likable Gilliam lead (think Jonathan Pryce, »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 21st 2014

21 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This week annoyed by a loudmouth blogger of some repute, who declared anime for paedophiles and insulted more or less the whole of Japanese culture, I decided to watch Netflix original anime Knights of Sidonia. His comments have widely been circulated and condemned by many people and he’s just made himself look a fool, and all this just because Gus Van Sant might be directing a Death Note movie. I recognise that anime is not for everyone but still, by dismissing all of it you are missing out on an awful lot of classic work and influential stuff.

Knights of Sidonia has been billed as a Netflix original but it’s quite hard to imagine that they would have been involved in the production of something like this, it’s pretty far out there even for anime and its more likely that Netflix have done what they did with »

Close Up: The Best Movie Moments from Terry Gilliam

18 July 2014 5:06 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In the latest of our Close Up series we look at one of HeyUGuys’ most treasured directors. Currently killing the Python (for the last time) on stage Terry Gilliam’s vibrant imagination and brutal humour has gathered him up a legion of fans who follow his every cinematic move with delight.

Though with a director such as Gilliam choosing a ‘best of’ list could easily be solved by pointing a link to his IMDb page I have chosen the elements of his work which I like the most. There are many, many more excellent moments and themes from his films, but as we near the release of The Zero Theorem on Blu-ray and DVD (out on Monday the 21st of July folks) we look back at those moments which made us fans.

The Kids are not what they seem.

6 Filmmaking Tips from Terry Gilliam

17 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The release of any Terry Gilliam film is a big deal. More so than any living filmmaker of lauded repute, Gilliam’s work has been unusually burdened by outsized circumstances that render it astonishing that he’s even accomplished the work he has, from Universal’s re-cutting of Brazil to his lead actor dying during the production of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus to his doomed “Don Quixote” project, documented in the film Lost in La Mancha. Not since Orson Welles (who famously pursued his own uncompleted Quixote film) has a respected filmmaker had such an endlessly difficult time bringing his ideas to screen. That makes the announcement of a late summer release date for Gilliam’s newest feature, The Zero Theorem, all the more remarkable. The film looks like prime Gilliam territory, with its dystopic representation of a certain future burdened by blinding consumerism and Kafka-esque bureaucracy reminiscent of the director’s most notorious battle for »

Déjà Vu - SyFy Debuts Trailer for '12 Monkeys' Series

16 July 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Billed as a complete reimagining, SyFy's serial take on Terry Gilliam's post-apocalyptic "12 Monkeys" retains it's dark imagery, but will Gilliam's frenetic underlying messages ultimately be lost in the mix?

The fictional worlds of director Terry Gilliam (The Fisher King, Brazil, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) are beautifuilly profound and gorgeously bizarre to say the least, always combining the harsh grit of reality with the sublime wonders of the imagination.  The famed director's 1995-outing 12 Monkeys was no exception.

Set in a distant future, 12 Monkeys saw Bruce Willis in the role of convict protagonist Cole, who is (messily) sent into the past by a shady government group with the task of seeking out and stopping the cause of mankind's current dilemna: a life underground in the dark to escape a worldwide pandemic that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction.

With his unique directorial style, Gilliam brought forth a haunting »

North and South American Pix Among Locarno Fest Mix

16 July 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — The 67th Locarno Film Festival has unveiled a promising lineup, which sees particularly strong presences from both North and South America, more established auteurs competing alongside lots of newcomers, and a distinct diversity of genres and styles that is becoming the trademark of artistic director Carlo Chatrian, now at his second edition.

As previously announced, the Swiss fest dedicated to indie and innovative cinema in its different forms will open with Luc Besson’s Scarlett Johansson-starrer “Lucy,” launching out-of-competition from Locarno’s 8,000 seat open-air Piazza Grande venue on Aug. 7, shortly after the English-language sci-fi thriller bows Stateside July 25 via Universal.

Other titles unspooling on the Piazza Grande include the fest bow of Lasse Hallstrom’s “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, which turns on a displaced family from India who open a restaurant in the South of France.

Fantasia Film Festival 2014: Derek’s Most Anticipated Movies

15 July 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This will be my third year attending the venerable Fantasia International Film Festival here in Montreal, and this year’s slate does not disappoint. I was asked to pick the five movies I was the most excited to see. This proved to be a difficult task, seeing as how my original list had upwards of thirty titles. But here are the five that have got me the most intrigued.

The Zero Theorem

Directed by Terry Gilliam

USA/UK/Romania/France, 2013

Even though this movie has been finished for a while and already released in certain territories around the world, there’s a sense that a new Terry Gilliam movie is some form of minor miracle. Stories of Gilliam’s distended budgets, lost projects, and squabbles with producers lend the director a kind of bizarre mystique. But by all accounts, this was the easiest time Gilliam had making a movie in a while. »

New Posters For ‘Maps To The Stars,’ ‘Clouds Of Sils Maria,’ ‘Zero Theorem’ & More

14 July 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You can just feel the wheels in motion for the fall and the fall film festival season. While some of these films do not have U.S. release dates yet, many have openings just around the corner and many are already receiving international releases. And so we’ve collected a few new posters that have landed for a quartet of films that have already premiered elsewhere earlier this year, and will likely drop into theaters or festivals in the next six months. Let’s start with the earliest film, Terry Gilliam’s “The Zero Theorem.” It debuted way back at the 2013 at the Venice Film Festival (our review here). It stars Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis and Matt Damon, and it’s about an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst in a dystopian future age, perhaps not unlike Gilliam’s “Brazil” but much more technologically advanced. »
