Even though Pallavi Sharda's last film Hawaizaada may not have done well at the box-office, that hasn't deterred this girl's spirit.

Natalie Dormer has been a consistent highlight in many of our favorite shows and movies — including Game of Thrones, Elementary, The Hunger Games, The Tudors, etc. — but she doesn’t get to lead them as often as we’d like. It’s a refreshing change of pace, then, to see her take center stage in the first trailer for The Forest. Directed by Jason Zada, the […]

Prithee, my lord, loosen our corsets and unbutton our breeches. This week has seen a new wave of period drama steam, from Natalie Dormer's BBC film The Scandalous Lady W to the furore about the 'pornographic' new adaptation of Lady Chatterley's Lover.
But they're hardly the first shows to bare historical breasts and bottoms. Here's our 9 favourite saucy costume dramas...
Ooh, Mr Darcy. We'll ease you in gently with the BBC's iconic 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries, fondly remembered for the scene in which Colin Firth's dashing hero takes a dip in the Pemberley lake and emerges to greet his unexpected guests, dripping like a dolphin in a wet T-shirt contest.
While it may have shocked your grandma, this is pretty tame stuff.

(Warning! This story may be a little too risqué for some younger reader. Discretion is advised.) Most actors don't discuss their sex scenes in detail. What is on the screen is what you get. But there is always that question that 'arises' when a romantic relationship in a movie or TV seems a little too real. Do the participants ever get a little too excited? Most hard-working thespians will describe any sex scene as uncomfortable and not the place to get aroused, as you are surrounded by tons of crew members on set while situated under very hot lights. It's not too appealing. But Henry Cavill is now one of the few to admit that yes, he did suddenly experience an unwanted physical manifestation of arousal while acting on set. And it was hugely embarrassing.

Even Superman can’t stop certain forces — like nature, as actor Henry Cavill said an on-set erection put him in an awkward position during his early days as an actor. The “Batman v. Superman” star said tensions quickly arose while shooting an intimate scene for Showtime’s “The Tudors,” resulting in a profuse apology to his co-star for the hard working conditions. “It’s only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing,” Cavill told Men’s Fitness. “A girl had to be on top of me, she had spectacular breasts, and I hadn’t rearranged my — stuff into a harmless position. »

Henry Cavill once suffered what we can only imagine to be pretty embarrassing—he got an erection at a really inconvenient time. Although we can't really blame him—he was filming a sex scene—that doesn't take away from his humiliation. Appearing on the September cover of Men's Fitness, the Man of Steel star reveals he had to say his sorry for getting a little turned on while filming a scene for The Tudors. "It's only happened to me once, and it was very embarrassing," he admits to the magazine. "A girl had to be on top of me, she had spectacular breasts, and I hadn't rearranged my—stuff into a harmless position. She's basically rubbing herself all over me »
If I had a penny for every time somebody told me that Vikings is nothing more than a poor man’s Game Of Thrones, Ragnar Lothbrok would laying siege to my house to plunder himself a fortune. Penned by historical fiction guru Michael Hirst (who also brought the The Tudors to the screen in all their glory), Vikings has been one of the most enjoyable and consistent shows of the decade so far, with the latest season maxing out Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer with a critic score of 100%.
There are certain similarities between the two shows, but in truth, while History’s maiden voyage into serial drama contains more than its fair share of crazy sex and brutal violence, it has more than enough about it to stand on its own two feet. What really sets it aside from George Rr Martin’s original fantasy is that Vikings is based on real history. »

Just days after veteran actor Ian McShane joined the cast of Game of Thrones for Season 6, the hit HBO series has added another highly-respected veteran actor. Entertainment Weekly reports that Max von Sydow has signed on to play the Three-Eyed Raven in Game of Thrones this season. Both Ian McShane and Max von Sydow are not expected to have major roles, but each character is described as "crucial." No details were given for Ian McShane's character.
At the end of Season 4, the Three-Eyed Raven finally appeared before Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), after he reached the Weirwood Tree. The Raven was played by a different actor in the Season 4 finale, but now we'll see Max von Sydow as this mystical tutor to Bran. Last season, Bran and his travelling companion Hodor (Kristian Nairn) did not appear at all, since their story was already caught up to the George R.R. Martin books. »

Emmerich, who also produced the film, says, “I was always interested and passionate about telling this important story, but I feel it has never been more timely than right now.” Less than 50 years ago, in 1969, being gay was considered a mental illness; gay people could not be employed by the government; it was illegal for gay people to congregate, and police brutality against gays went unchecked. Today, thanks to the events set in motion by the Stonewall riots, the gay rights movement continues to make incredible strides towards equality. In the past several weeks alone, the »
