Some movies go from script to production to release with speed and ease. The Last Witch Hunter is not one of those movies. Originally announced back in early 2010 with Night Watch and Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov attached to direct, this fantasy adventure has been stewing in development hell since then – and is still waiting on a green light from Summit Entertainment.
In 2012, it was revealed that The Last Witch Hunter might have found the magic ingredient needed to get it cooking properly: Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) was said to be in talks for the lead role: an immortal witch hunter, who must track down a coven of witches ...

In honor of "Game of Thrones" Season 3's arrival on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download, here's a refresher of where the HBO fantasy series left its central characters last season. With Season 4 premiering in a month and a half, it's a helpful reminder of where the story of "Game of Thrones" left off.

HBO has been generous with season four footage this year; much of the content of latest trailer below had already been seen speedily edited and interspersed with cast interviews in the fifteen-minute A Foreshadowing promo. The 'Vengeance' trailer below though, provides our first steady look at what promise to be a number of key scenes in the forthcoming season.
To the sound of a suitably apocalyptic song (Everlove’s Cities In Dust Siouxsie and the Banshees cover, which takes lyrical inspiration from the destruction of Pompeii), this new trailer showed us a fractured Seven Kingdoms and nods towards what we assume are the final »
