HBO’s epic masterpiece Game of Thrones is back for Season 3, with bigger battles, devastating betrayals and more deaths, as everyone fights for control of the Iron Throne.  Now that magic is growing stronger and the dragons have been let loose, there’s no telling who might be in jeopardy or in power next.

At the show’s press day, co-stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Jaime Lannister”) and Gwendoline Christie (“Brienne of Tarth”) talked about the evolution of Jaime Lannister, the similarities between Jaime and Brienne, whether they can develop a mutual respect for each other, how their sword-fighting skills are growing, whether Jaime feels as though he needs redemption, who they’d each like to have scenes with in the future, and experiencing the intense fandom in America.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

The first full trailer for season three of HBO’s Game of Thrones has been released online.  While I love the music for Game of Thrones and “Florence and the Machine,” the latter feels a bit out of place here, but who cares?! [Correction: the song is "Bones" by MS MR"]  Without giving away any spoilers from the books, we get glimpses of a flaming ship, a flaming sword, ranks upon ranks of well-trained soldiers in the desert and yes, a dragon in full flight!  I’m ecstatic to return to Westeros in about a month, how about you?

MAMA Review

by     Posted 1 year, 314 days ago

mama-slice

Parents should go to any length to protect their children.  It’s not just love.  It’s a biological imperative.  But sometimes emotions are no match for biology, and these emotions get horribly twisted.  There are some parents who kill their children and believe that this is protection.  These parents find some sick, awful salvation in death.  Mama hints at going to this dark, disturbing place, but ends up playing it safe.  The movie dances around what it means to protect and neglect a child, and the film deserves credit for attempting to stretch beyond, “It’s good to love and nurture innocent kids.”  Unfortunately, the film is bogged down in poor pacing and pushing a crummy monster rather than letting the strong performances and cinematography convey an unsettling subtext.

MAMA Featurette Shows Commentary from Guillermo del Toro, Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

by     Posted 1 year, 323 days ago

mama-trailer-slice

While I’d recommend going into Andrés Muschietti’s Mama as unspoiled as possible to get the most out of the film’s great scares, this new featurette does give viewers a better sense of what the picture is all about.  Featuring commentary from executive producer Guillermo del Toro and stars Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the video gives a bit of insight into the nature of the two sisters (played by Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nélisse), some real-world inspiration for the film and some info on the title character.  Unfortunately, it also spoils a few of the picture’s best jump moments and gives away, in my opinion, too much of the monstrously-designed title character.  Steer clear if you’re already locked in for Mama when it debuts on January 18th; hit the jump to check it out if you still need convincing.

First Trailer for Joseph Kosinski’s OBLIVION Starring Tom Cruise

by     Posted 1 year, 353 days ago

oblivion-poster-slice

The first trailer for director Joseph Kosinski’s (TRON: Legacy) sci-fi film Oblivion has been released.  At first blush, it’s not exactly what I was expecting and I think that bodes well for the picture. Rather than a straight shoot-em-up actioner or a generic survival story, Oblivion looks to have elements of mystery and betrayal all tied into Tom Cruise’s character, Jack Harper.  Olga Kurylenko looks beautiful even dressed-down and Morgan Freeman channels his own version of Laurence Fishburne’s Morpheus. The all-white aesthetic looks sharp and clean against a backdrop of chaos and destruction and the overall design definitely has some nods to TRON. There are also elements of The Fifth Element, Minority Report and The Matrix presented in this introductory trailer, but Oblivion looks to be something all its own. (But what is up with that creature that looks like Darth Vader and sounds like a Tusken raider?)

The film also stars Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Melissa LeoOblivion opens on April 19, 2013.  Hit the jump to watch.

New Trailer for Horror Film MAMA, Produced by Guillermo del Toro

by     Posted 2 years, 38 days ago

mama-trailer-slice

As we are currently inundated with “found footage” jump scares in mainstream theaters, it’s refreshing to get back to the bloody roots of good old fashion horror.  I’m wagering that nothing you’ve seen this year is as creepy as Mama.  From producer Guillermo del Toro and director Andres Muschietti comes a new international trailer for Mama, starring Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.  Centering on a man (Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend (Chastain) who take care of his nieces after they are found in the wild, the trailer reveals (perhaps too much) that they did not survive on their own.  Check out the previous trailer for Mama here and hit the jump to compare it to the newer, creepier (and perhaps more spoilery) one.
