Jennifer Lawrence Goes to War in New THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1 Images

by     Posted 13 days ago

hunger-games-mockingjay-part-1-images

Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 images from the first half of director Francis Lawrence’s conclusion to the franchise.  As seen in the full-length trailer, the story finds Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss on the frontlines of an all-out war between the rebels of District 13 and the Capitol.  These new images showcase Katniss’ battle-readiness, but the highlight of Mockingay – Part 1 for me continues to be Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s Cressida.  She looks absolutely badass in the role, and after hearing Dormer’s thoughts on women in the movie industry at the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel at this year’s Comic-Con, I’m essentially ready to vote her into office.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 images.  The film also stars Liam HemsworthWoody HarrelsonJulianne MoorePhilip Seymour HoffmanElizabeth BanksNatalie DormerSam Claflin, and Donald Sutherland.  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 opens in theaters on November 21st.

For some reason I keep forgetting that there’s a new Hunger Games movie coming this year.  Catching Fire surprised the hell out of me and was my favorite studio tentpole of last year, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how Francis Lawrence tackles the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy (well the first half of the final book, technically).  A peek into what’s in store has surfaced today by way of a new collection of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 posters that introduce the leaders of the rebellion.  There’s Liam Hemsworth’s Gale, of course, but I’m really excited to see Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer’s portrayal of Cressida; Dormer’s look for the character is positively fantastic.  And yes, that’s Elden Henson aka Fulton from The Mighty Ducks as Pollux.

Hit the jump to take a look at the Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 posters, which also feature Evan Ross as Messalla, Mahershala Ali as Boggs, and Wes Chatham as Castor.  The film also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, and Donald SutherlandThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 opens in theaters on November 21st.

HBO has released yet another trailer for the fourth season of Game of Thrones.  Watching this trailer, it’s important to remember that there are still only ten episodes, and we’ve got quite a lot of storylines on our hands.  At some point, we may want to be grateful for some character deaths if only to unburden the plot.  Of course, I say that now and then all the characters I like will probably be slaughtered.  So much for the bright side.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The show stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Charles Dance, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maisie Williams, Aiden Turner, Iain Glen, Rose Leslie, Carice Van Houten, Alfie Allen, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, and Isaac Hempstead Wright.  New cast this season include Pedro Pascal, Michiel Huisman, and Indira VarmaGame of Thrones returns on April 6th at 9pm on HBO.

Like the recent trailer, a batch of new posters for the fourth season of Game of Thrones seems bent on preparing us for an onslaught of characters deaths.  The tagline “All Men Must Die” is translation of “Valar morghulis”, which is the High Valyrian taught to Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) by Jaqen H’ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) in season two.  The previous set of posters focused on the Lanisters, and now the rest of the cast is getting their close-ups.  If you’re like me and haven’t read the books, how many of these poor sods are going to make it to season five.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  The show also stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Charles Dance, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Aiden Turner, Iain Glen, Rose Leslie, Carice Van Houten, Alfie Allen, Diana Rigg, Natalie Dormer, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, and Isaac Hempstead Wright.  New cast this season include Pedro Pascal, Michiel Huisman and Indira Varma. Game of Thrones returns on April 6th at 9pm on HBO.

New Clip from THE COUNSELOR Starring Michael Fassbender and Natalie Dormer

by     Posted 350 days ago

the-counselor-images-slice

20th Century Fox has released a new clip from Ridley Scott’s The Counselor.  The script by Cormac McCarthy (author of The Road and No Country for Old Men) centers on an attorney (Michael Fassbender) who teams with Reiner (Javier Bardem) to sell $20 million worth of cocaine.  In the clip, Fassbender’s character has a conversation with a sale clerk (Natalie Dormer) about purchasing women’s undergarments.  It’s an incredibly odd scene not because of the content, but because of Scott’s direction.  The tone of the scene is almost sinister, and the way it ends almost makes me think there’s an error in the player.  The dialogue keeps going but the character’s lips stop moving, so it looks like they have a telepathic bond.  It gets stranger from there.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.  The film also stars Brad Pitt, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, and Goran VisnjicThe Counselor opens October 25th. [Update: The clip is technically "viral footage" whatever that means.]

Russian and UK Teaser Trailers Provide a First Look at Ridley Scott’s THE COUNSELOR Starring Michael Fassbender [UPDATED]

by     Posted 1 year, 97 days ago

the-counselor-javier-bardem-slice

A Russian teaser trailer has popped up online for Ridley Scott‘s upcoming drama/thriller, The Counselor.  The script by Cormac McCarthy (author of The Road and No Country for Old Men) centers on an attorney (Michael Fassbender) who teams with Reiner (Javier Bardem) to sell $20 million worth of cocaine.  The trailer is dubbed in Russian, but there’s no language barrier when it comes to understanding that Bardem’s hair is crazier than his character No Country for Old Men.  Wild dos aside, the stacked cast also includes Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer, and Goran Visnjic.  This will definitely be one to keep an eye on in the fall awards season.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The Counselor is due out in the U.S. on October 25th. [Update: We've added an embed for the UK trailer as well, which is in English.]

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 Sophie Turner (“Sansa Stark”) and Natalie Dormer (“Margaery Tyrell”) talked about how nice Jack Gleeson is versus how much people hate King Joffrey, how the relationship between Sansa and Margaery will evolve in Season 3, what it was like to work with Diana Rigg (“Olenna”), how Sansa has found her strength after the Battle of Blackwater, what sort of relationship both women will have with Cersei (Lena Headey), how much of the books they’ve read, that the actors get together in Belfast for a read-through of five episodes over two days before each season starts shooting, how they feel like fans of the show themselves, and how much of an effect the success of Game of Thrones has had on them.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
