GAME OF THRONES Season One DVD Review

HBO’s Game of Thrones comes at an interesting time in geekdom, and its success speaks to the barriers that have been broken. Though fantasy and science fiction have often been popular cinematically, on television it’s been stuck in a Stargate-esque ghetto. But now we’ve got one of the most thoughtful shows currently on air on one of the most prestigious networks that also happens to be about dragons and swordplay. Perhaps the better arbiter of what crosses over to the mainstream and what doesn’t is quality, and Game of Thrones is definitely an engrossing show even for those who’ve never picked up a twenty sided die. Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Mark Addy and Peter Dinklage lead a mostly British cast in a tale about warring families in a fantastical middle age. Our review of Game of Thrones on DVD follows after the jump.

The adaptation of Twilight author Stephanie Meyer’s sci-fi novel The Host is gearing up now that writer-director Andrew Niccol has wrapped up duties on his latest feature In Time. The film takes place in the future, and Saoirse Ronan is set to star as Melanie, a woman whose body is invaded by an alien named Wanderer. Casting has now turned to the two male leads in the film: Jared, Melanie’s boyfriend, and Ian, “a menacing young man who brutalizes Wanderer before falling in love with her.” Hit the jump to find out what actors are in the running for the two roles.

Last week, it was reported that Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) and Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones) were the frontrunners to star in Arthur & Lancelot, a reinvention of the Arthurian legend by writer/director David Dobkin (The Change-Up).  Heat Vision has now confirmed Warner Bros. signed Kinnaman to play Lancelot.  The next step is for Kinnaman to do chemistry reads with a number of young actors vying for the role of Arthur, including Harrington, Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Dominic Cooper (Captain America), Hans Matheson (Sherlock Holmes), Jim Sturgess (21), Liam Hemsworth (The Last Song), and Benjamin Walker (star of the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).  I really liked Kinnaman’s work in The Killing—there’s a great intensity to his screen presence.  Cooper is similar in that vein, but otherwise, the list suggests Dobkin’s Arthur is more boyish in contrast to Kinnaman as Sir Lancelot.

Director David Dobkin (The Change-Up) is nailing down the cast for his period King Arthur project Arthur & Lancelot, and it looks like he’s closing on his leads. Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington and The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman have emerged as the frontrunners to take on the lead roles, per Heat Vision. When Dobkin sat down with Steve earlier this year, he talked about how he went back to the legend and pulled it apart for his PG-13 iteration, saying “I kept certain characters, I recreated the entire launch of the legend and why it starts the way that it starts.” Though plot details are under wraps, Dobkin did tease that the film is “wrapped around the birth of democracy as a concept and it’s positing Arthur as the first man to say all men are created equal.” Hit the jump for more, including what other actors tested for the roles.
