Jason Momoa Reveals the "Coolest" Thing About Playing Aquaman, and It's Not His Trident

I imagine there are plenty of perks to being Aquaman. Breathing underwater, for example, seems pretty sweet, as does superhuman strength and being able to command sharks to do your bidding. But according to Jason Momoa, current star of Aquaman, the most exciting part of playing the aqua-inclined superhero has nothing to do with his abilities or even that shiny gold trident.

During a recent interview with Us Weekly, Momoa shared that although he was nervous about his kids seeing him in the film, ultimately, their reactions are what he says is the "coolest" part of the entire process.

"The colors are very loud. I'm curious to see my face attached to that body. I feel like the most intimate part of it was being in it and looking at people's faces," he said. "The coolest moment was probably when I got on the phone and I FaceTimed my kids

The Umbrella Academy: Watch the Wickedly Fun Trailer For Netflix's New Superhero Series

The Umbrella Academy: Watch the Wickedly Fun Trailer For Netflix's New Superhero Series
If the recent X-Men movies had a better sense of humor about them, perhaps they would've ended up resembling something akin to Netflix's latest stab at the superhero genre: The Umbrella Academy, a TV series adapted from the comics created by My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá.

In the first trailer, we're introduced to a world where, on the same day in October 1989, 43 women around the world wake up and miraculously (and inexplicably) deliver babies, despite having shown no symptoms of pregnancy prior to that. Seven of those children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who intends to use their superhuman abilities to save the world by forming the Umbrella Academy. However, the family/team fractures in their teenage years, and they all go their own separate ways. Sorry, universe.

The 10 Best Shows of 2018

Although it might have felt like the world was crumbling down around me this year, TV offered a respite from the madness in the form of fantastic storytelling, diverse casts, and, of course, the Bent Neck Lady. In a way, it felt like TV has never been better, despite the significant hole left by Game of Thrones. For that reason alone, it was incredibly difficult for me to narrow down the best of the best. Fortunately, like a person dead set on ignoring all of life's responsibilities to binge an entire season of peak TV in one weekend, I forged ahead.

Mortal Engines bombs hard, expected to lose over $100 million

In a packed December that includes the DC blockbuster Aquaman, animated superhero adventure Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns and Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, it was always like that at least one film was going to find itself struggling in the marketplace – and that film is Mortal Engines.

The Peter Jackson-produced adaptation of Philip Reeve’s book series debuted to just $7.5 million in its opening weekend in North America and has grossed $42 million globally to date.

Given it has a production budget north of $100 million, plus an expensive marketing campaign, Variety is reporting that Universal is likely to see a loss of between $100 million and $125 million on the film, depending on how it performs in China.

“This is a true Christmas disaster and a lump of coal for Universal,” states box office analyst Jeff Bock. “They took a big swing, and they struck out.”

Jason Momoa Is a Stripping Christmas Ghost in This SNL Skit, and I've Lost My Ability to Speak
Jason Momoa's Saturday Night Live debut on Dec. 8 included a feel-good opening monologue, the obligatory Game of Thrones skit, and so many references to his superhero physique. One skit in particular left the Aquaman actor grinding up on a bedpost in a matching sequin top and short-shorts. It was a holiday skit.

As we head into awards season now, one television show that’s picking up an awful lot of buzz and recognition is the hit political thriller Bodyguard.

Starring Game of ThronesRichard Madden, the series follows his character David Budd, who’s assigned to protect the Conservative party’s Home Secretary.

Review: Mortal Engines Is an Epic and Adventurous Thrill Ride

I’ve been pretty excited about seeing producer Peter Jackson’s epic new film project Mortal Engines. I’ve really enjoyed everything that I’ve seen in the trailers for the film and what we see in those trailers is exactly what this movie delivers.

If you like what you’ve seen from the footage that has been shared, chances are you’re going to enjoy the movie. If you’ve scoffed at the trailers, and you think the movie looks like it’s going to be a silly and/or piece of crap movie, then that’s what you’re going to get.

With a movie like Mortal Engines, you just can take it too seriously. You’ve kinda got check your brain out at the door. This is an epic and adventurous popcorn flick, and I personally enjoyed the hell out of it! I loved the massive scale

First Look at ‘Game of Thrones’ Ice Spiders, Which May Appear in the Final Season
In George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, he wrote a scene in which Bran Stark’s nanny, who’s nicknamed Old Nan, tells the little lord a story about The Long Night, a deadly period of Westerosi history in which a cold, hard winter fell that was “endless beyond all memory of man.” […]

Game of Thrones Might Introduce Ice Spiders and the Nightmares Are Already Happening

Game of Thrones Might Introduce Ice Spiders and the Nightmares Are Already Happening
Forget ice dragons, ice spiders might be coming to Game of Thrones…and your nightmares. Old Nan told viewers (and Bran Stark) of the ice spiders back in season one. She said back in the day the White Walkers would hunt with packs of huge ice spiders. These ice spiders cover the upcoming 2020 calendar for the Game of Thrones book series that scribe George R.R. Martin shared a teaser of on Twitter. Seems like a strong possibility that viewers will see these beasts on their TV screens, and then later again during their night terrors. We know the fine folks of Westeros, including the Lannisters, Starks and Targaryens, will be facing off with the White Walkers in some pretty epic battles during the upcoming eighth...

Jon Snow Meets Toothless in Fun New Promo For How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

If you’ve ever wanted to see a Game of Thrones and How To Train Your Dragon crossover, this new promo spot for How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is the closest thing we’ll get to seeing it.

The promo features Kit Harington a.k.a. Jon Snow auditioning for the film, and when Toothless joins him in his audition things get amusingly silly. During the promo the actor also pokes some fun at his Jon Snow character.

Harington provides the voice of Eret in the movie, and he is joined by Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, and F. Murray Abraham.

Dean DeBlois returns to direct How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, and the final chapter in the trilogy arrives February 22nd, 2019.

‘Game of Thrones': George Rr Martin Finally Reveals What Old Nan’s Giant Ice Spiders Look Like (Photo)

‘Game of Thrones': George Rr Martin Finally Reveals What Old Nan’s Giant Ice Spiders Look Like (Photo)
As if the night wasn’t already dark and filled with enough terrors, now George R.R. Martin has gone and revealed a look at those horrifying giant ice spiders Old Nan was yammering about to little Bran back in “Game of Thrones” Season 1. And, uh, she definitely undersold them.

“Here’s an official sneak peak of John Howe’s cover art of our 2020 SoI&F calendar featuring the legendary ice spiders which haunt old Nan’s creepiest bedtime stories,” the “A Song of Ice and Fire” author tweeted Thursday, alongside a photo of — you guessed it — those ginormous, eight-legged beasts.

In case you are having a hard time remembering these guys (because you haven’t actually seen them on the HBO series) allow us to remind you of the chilling tale Nan regaled a newly-crippled Bran with when he was bedridden in Season 1 with this excerpt: “They swept through cities and kingdoms,

Blu-ray Review: Elizabeth Harvest Re-Imagines Bluebeard

One of the many releases just out now from Scream Factory is the 2018 film Elizabeth Harvest, from Sebastian Gutierrez. It stars Abbey Lee (The Neon Demon), Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones), and Carla Gugino (Gerald's Game). The key cast is joined by Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game) and Dylan Baker (Happiness). You can read Martin's review here. Essentially, the new, mostly one-location horror/thriller film Elizabeth Harvest is a re-telling of the classic folklore/warped fairy tale of Bluebeard, who had a nasty habit of killing all of his young, beautiful wives because they entered a forbidden room while he was traveling. The biggest difference is that Elizabeth Harvest veers into Black Mirror territory, which I can say without giving anything away. I did, however, see the main twist coming, but for me,...

Kit Harington's "Audition" for Game of Thrones With This Famous Dragon Will Make Your Day

Kit Harington's
Can Kit Harington follow up Game of Thrones with…a comedy gig? The Emmy nominee sure has the chops for it in the above video from DreamWorks. In the cute clip, Harington auditions for a certain fantasy show that sure sounds like Game of Thrones, but instead of appearing with Daenerys Targaryen's beloved dragons, he's with Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon. Hijinks ensue. "Be honest, Toothless, do I come across as too broody? Because half the time I'm just trying to remember where I left my keys," Harington says. In "outtakes" from the audition, Harington struggles to understand his role. "I'm a little confused about my part, really. I mean, first...
