Posted August 24, 2017 by Katie RobertsNaming your baby after a character from “Game of Thrones” is so three years ago. It should come as no surprise that the Stark children’s Direwolves were one of the biggest sources of naming inspiration among survey participants, with Whistle reporting that 62 percent of its users’ “Thrones”-adjacent monikers belong to either Grey Wind, Lady, Nymeria, Summer, Shaggydog, or Ghost.According to the survey, non-Direwolf “Thrones” names that have proven popular tend to skew more toward residents of the North, with Arya (named after Maisie Williams’s character, Arya Stark) and Snow (named for Kit Harington’s Jon Snow) among the most used.If you’re looking to procure a pooch and name it after your favorite “GoT” character, though, consider following the advice of star Peter Dinklage: The actor recently encouraged “Thrones” fans not to get a dog (like the Direwolf-like husky) unless they were serious about the commitment raising a pet takes — and urged people to adopt the pet from a shelter whenever possible. We’ll raise a glass of wine to that.[via: Entertainment Weekly] Now, the cool trend is to name your dog after a resident of Westeros.That’s the word from a new survey conducted jointly by Whistle and Rover, which reports that “GoT” is the hot new thing when it comes to what people call their pets.
Posted August 24, 2017 by Katie RobertsAre you planning on checking out Stephen King adaptation “It” this weekend, and aren’t satisfied with the prospect of only seeing a scary clown on the big screen? Regardless of its origins, it’s a pretty genius bit of marketing for the Drafthouse — the buzzy film is already projected to do some big business on its opening weekend, and now, fans can also indulge their creative/creepy sides while enjoying the long-awaited flick.”It” opens on Friday.[via: Alamo Drafthouse] Well, one Alamo Drafthouse theater in Texas is here to make your dreams/nightmares come true.The Mueller location of the theater chain is offering a “clown screening” of the horror flick on Saturday, inviting attendees to don their best Pennywise cosplay to get in. The theater is going all-out with the theme, too, staging a pre-party before the showing featuring “face-painters available for clown ‘touch-ups’, a photo booth, raffles for prizes, and other terrifying merriment.” If that latter oxymoron sounds appealing to you, you should hop on the next flight to Austin.As film critic Siddhant Adlakha pointed out on Twitter, the inspiration for this insanely creepy idea may have actually come from a troll who complained about the chain’s women-only screening of “Wonder Woman” back in May.

But right now, it’s [DeLuca] and Alex.” She also added that it will be interesting to see how Jo reacts when she finds out Alex tracked down her husband. That bar is low, but there are so many love triangles, squares, etc. Even though Jo seemed meh about his infatuation with her, Giacomo Gianniotti hints that his portrayer may make another go at it. “Do I think that it could push them even further away from each other?

However, TVLine did just post a little “blind item” that many fans think is about “Riverdale”:”Mini-Blind Item: A relatively new and popular one-hour drama series is about to venture outside its wheelhouse and dabble in the supernatural.”So maybe it’s not completely crazy to think “Riverdale” could see some superhero action. Can a crossover be far behind?? Like us on Facebook.

Episode seven is maybe the longest one. […] Or sit really, really close to your 50-inch TV.”Heck, we’d jump inside the TV if we could.A previous mini spoiler said Episode 6 would have the last major battle scene of the season, so we’re not expecting a big fight in Episode 7 — despite the armies seen in the promo, and in the photo below — but we are still expecting some big developments.As Alan Taylor, who directed the previous Episode 6, told THR:”What becomes more important is not so much the scale of the action as it is the scale of the story point. I can say the next episode that finishes this short season, the plot point evolves in an even more dramatic way. It takes a huge leap forward. Pre-production has already begun for Season 8, the final season, which starts filming this October for a premiere in either 2018 or 2019.Want more stuff like this? Somehow, it feels like the thing on ‘Game of Thrones’ now is, if anybody comes up with a [great] idea, whatever the cost, the ambition, everyone has to say yes. It keeps building.”Huge leap forward, plot wise…Here’s more from Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane), describing the finale:”It’s going to be interesting, I can tell you that. 27, and the stars are now hyping the record 80-minute Episode 7, “The Dragon and the Wolf.”Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) told The Hollywood Reporter, when it comes to this finale, we should think on a larger scale:”I think what everybody imagines, they’re going to get it, and maybe even a little bit more. When you have a battle in episode two, and a huge one in episode four … Like us on Facebook. We’re competing with ourselves. We’re talking about a feature-length episode.”Yes, it’s 80 minutes, no commercials, so that is darn-near feature-length.We know the finale will include Jon Snow trying to convince (pregnant, and tense) Queen Cersei to agree to a truce with Queen Daenerys and join together to fight the White Walkers. It’s like ‘Game of Thrones’ is competing with ‘Game of Thrones,’ in the way that we feel everybody has to take it up another notch to make the fans happy.

The two also appeared during Sarah’s nightmare sequence, with Leslie playing the younger version of Sarah.8. 1. But as the sequels have shown us, that future never came to pass. Not only did he visibly age over the course of the near six-month shoot, but Furlong’s voice also dropped, forcing him to rerecord a great deal of dialogue during post-production.7. While the original “Terminator” was a decent box office success in 1984, this sequel managed to top that gross in its first two days of release. If the mini-gun Schwarzenegger’s T-800 wields during the Cyberdyne shootout looks familiar, that’s because the exact same prop gun was also used by Jesse Ventura’s character in 1987’s “Predator.” Neither character had time to bleed.10. Biehn did appear in “T2,” in a deleted scene, where his character came to Sarah Connor in a dream.3. Robert Patrick (above) wasn’t actually the first choice to portray the T-1000. The “Terminator 2” Blu-ray includes an alternate ending that showcases the happy, Terminator-free future that the Connors created by defeating Skynet. During the filming of that biker bar scene, a random passerby wandered onto set confused as to why Schwarzenegger was walking around wearing nothing but Bermuda shorts. 2. (At the time, it was also the most expensive movie ever made.)11. Cameron revealed that the biker bar sequence was filmed across the street from where the infamous LAPD beating of Rodney King took place. Apparently the filming was taking place while the beating was happening.5. Thanks, James Cameron! In the scene where the T-1000 is disguised as Sarah Connor, Linda Hamilton played the T-1000 while her sister, Leslie Hamilton Gearren, played Sarah. Like a good sequel is supposed to, it took everything that was great about the original and dialed it up to (at least) eleventy, while further cementing Arnold Schwarzenegger’s reputation as one of the great Hollywood badasses. Because “Hasta la vista, baby” doesn’t have quite the same impact when the entire film is dubbed in Spanish, the Spanish version of “Terminator 2” changed that line to say “Sayonara, baby.”4. The actor nonchalantly informed her that it was male stripper night at the bar.6.Edward Furlong was only 13 when he was cast in the role of John Connor. Posted August 24, 2017 by Jesse SchedeenIt’s hard to believe it’s been more than 25 years since “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” first exploded onto the big screen. Cameron also reportedly mulled over the idea of casting “The Terminator” actor Michael Biehn (pictured) as the liquid-metal villain, with the explanation that Skynet had cloned the late Kyle Reese and turned him into a Terminator. As effects-driven as this movie was, Cameron relied on twin actors to save time and money whenever scenes called for body doubles. The film went on to become the highest-grossing movie of 1991. When our heroes are refueling their car after fleeing into the desert, a gas pump can be seen sporting the logo for Benthic Petroleum, the fictional company that owned the oil rig in “The Abyss.” Does this mean the two movies take place in the same universe?9. In honor of the film returning to theaters this week in a shiny, new 3D release, here are 11 things you need to know about one of the best sequels in the history of ever. Cameron originally had his eyes on musician Billy Idol, but Idol had to drop out after having a motorcycle accident.

He highlighted how much she pushed herself, especially while filming the climax of the movie.”I think she hyperventilated and also kind of threw a rib out,” he said. 15.[via: New York] And I really didn’t get to know the character until we started shooting, and she showed up.”We can’t imagine what exactly she was filming that required so much effort, but we know it is bound to be disturbing. She was present, but never really pushed herself,” he said. “It wasn’t appropriate for me to push that, even though I wasn’t sure how she was going to do it. “She really went there. We had to sort of calm it down and then go for it again.”Apparently, Lawrence took it easier before filming began, leaving Aronofsky initially unsure of exactly how her performance would turn out. The producers were freaking out. He didn’t need to worry, though, because when it was time, she was ready for the taxing scenes.”During the rehearsals, she was very, very relaxed. Aronofsky’s past work includes “Black Swan,” “Requiem for a Dream,” and more, so we believe his warning that audiences should expect a “very intense ride.” In “mother!,” Lawrence plays half of a couple whose life takes a horrifying turn after a visit from unexpected guests.The actress might not be the only one this film makes hyperventilate.”Mother!” opens Sept.

Although her character was devastated by the death, Clarke found something to laugh about. While speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actress pointed out how fitting it is that the dragon now aligned with the enemy is the one named for her scheming brother Viserys.”Of course it’s the rotten egg,” she said, “of course you’d turn.”That said, Clarke recognizes how awful Viserion’s death is for her character, who has repeatedly referred to her trio of dragons as her children over the years.”It’s a heartbreak,” she told EW.

Along the way, it has inspired an animated short (the utterly charming “Frozen Fever”), several Disney Parks attractions (the best of which is Frozen Ever After in the Norway pavilion at Epcot) and appearances on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.” But that’s just the beginning — there will soon be a Broadway musical (currently in previews in Denver), a full-fledged sequel (with a tentative release date of November 27, 2019) and a brand-new holiday special debuting this Christmas alongside Pixar’s “Coco.” And by all indications this special, called “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure,” is going to be pretty special.Earlier this summer, at the D23 Expo, Josh Gad sang one of the new songs from the special (written by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson) on stage and it was a hoot. “We really wanted to make sure that it was not only in the world but furthered the world of the characters. “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” premieres with “Coco,” opening nationwide on November 22. Even Kristoff has a legitimate song,” Conli revealed.One of the biggest thrills for the producer, though, was getting to work with the cast (everyone is returning for the special). “The cast of that film — what a delight!” Conli said. This is a somewhat diminutive person. The Disney animated feature, released way back in 2013, made more than $1 billion at the global box office and won the Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“Let It Go”). “We, being me and Stevie Wermers and Kevin Deters, who directed it, joked that they’ve become the holiday experts,” Conli said. And it was like, This is why she’s a star.””Born in China” hits Blu-ray, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on August 29. It’s really cool. Chaos, inevitably, ensues. Kristen and Idina were incredible. It looks very cute.We were down at Walt Disney World a couple of weeks ago speaking to “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” producer Roy Conli about his work on the gorgeous Disneynature film “Born in China” (out on home video next week) and had to ask him what we could expect from this latest “Frozen” romp.”Well, first of all, they’re going to get four new songs, which are wonderful,” Conli said.He then admitted that he was uneasy about coming aboard such a beloved franchise: “I came onto this a little concerned because you’re taking one of the crown jewels.”Still, he’s got a crackerjack team behind him, including directors Stevie Wermers and Kevin Deters, who created the “Prep & Landing” Christmas specials for Walt Disney Animation Studios and ABC. (They have!)Clearly everyone involved wanted this to be special and to really advance the overall “Frozen” story. “Josh Gad is a really amazing performer. Posted August 23, 2017 by Drew Taylor”Frozen” is a phenomenon.There’s just no getting around that. You see a side of the ladies that you didn’t see in the film. We sat, slack-jawed, when Idina came in. You get to know Olaf a little bit better. The special is concerned with Anna and Elsa, who, with a newly free and open Arendelle, are able to celebrate the holidays for the first time in forever (see what I did there?) So it’s up to Olaf to find the best holiday celebrations.
And in the best-case scenario, like the adoption of Randall, it works out.Sniff! In the clip, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) tells mother Rebecca (Mandy Moore) that his plans to adopt another child have hit a snag. I was tired and I was grieving, and he just kept pushing me.Rebecca goes on to explain that while her marriage wasn’t perfect, and Jack wasn’t perfect (nearly, but not totally), sometimes one partner has to push the other. It seems wife Beth is a bit hesitant.When he asks Rebecca how she and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) decided to adopt him, she thinks back to that fateful day three decades ago.”I said no,” she confesses, as we see a flashback to Jack and Rebecca standing outside the nursery ward. 26. “But your father was so sure.

He created the damn thing.The author recently told Metro that he is too busy writing and touring to watch the HBO show anymore. About 20 of them have died already, which are quite alive to me and will appear in a new book.”Martin’s fans probably hope he doesn’t get sucked into a binge-watch of the recent seasons; they’ve been waiting over six years for “The Winds of Winter” — which, unfortunately, is still not completed.”I did not start to write slower over the years. wait. He previously wrote one episode of “Game of Thrones” in each of the first four seasons. Age does not add enthusiasm.” But since then, he’s concentrated on finishing “Winds of Winter,” the six novel in his epic fantasy novel series.Also, perhaps Martin doesn’t want to be influenced by events on the show, which have now outpaced his books.”The book series and TV adaptation go their separate ways,” he noted. “In addition, I have not become younger.

We’re going to be setting up new characters.”Marvel has been saying for some time that the MCU will change significantly after “Avengers 4.” The next phase will include “Spider-Man 2,” but other than that, the studio hasn’t announced any titles to avoid spoiling the events of the next two “Avengers” movies.Even “Guardians” will see changes, even though it will help set the template for the next two decades of Marvel films.Gunn teased that “Vol. Posted August 23, 2017 by Kelly WooThe fate of the universe rests on the “Guardians of the Galaxy” — the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that is.Director James Gunn is working on the script for third movie in the “Guardians” franchise, following the successful release of “Vol.

Like us on Facebook. 27 at 9 p.m. These come via Watchers in the Wall, which got them from DNA India.The Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) photo, and the one of Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) at the Dragonpit, were already posted to HBO.com, but the others are new, teasing tension between Jaime and Cersei, while also showing Jaime back with Bronn (Jerome Flynn).Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) is hopefully coming up with some kind of plan to save his sister Yara, who was captured after Theon literally jumped ship on her when they were ambushed by Uncle Euron.Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) is hopefully working up to some new visions, perhaps even giving us a flashback to the title characters.There are no photos yet of Arya and Littlefinger at Winterfell, or of Jon Snow and Team Dany at the Dragonpit in King’s Landing, but you can certainly see the Dragonpit crew in the Season 7 finale trailer, posted below the photos.Here’s the Season 7 finale trailer:”Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 7 will be about 80 minutes long, the longest ever, and it will be the final episode of 2017. Posted August 23, 2017 by Gina CarboneCersei looks mad, Bran looks intense, and Theon looks sorry for all of his life choices in the first photos from the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale, Episode 7, “The Dragon and the Wolf.”This first batch of pics is a bit of an early surprise, and HBO will probably release more later.
And when Sophie says she won the Battle of the Bastards, she’s right. Like us on Facebook. 27 at 9 p.m. But I love the fact that the tables do turn back and forth between them; it really is a shifting back and forth of power between them in those scenes we had. 27.Alan Taylor directed Episode 6, “Beyond the Wall,” and talked to the Huffington Post about the Arya/Sansa tension thus far, and where it goes from here:”I think both characters have been through absolute hell since the death of their father in very different ways, and have turned into absolute lethal individuals. I think he likes it. They love each other but they’re so different. There’s all kinds of mixed things going on with Littlefinger and that relationship with Sansa. But he puts himself on the line like a good gambler.”This fool should’ve fled Winterfell the second Bran told him chaos is a ladder. Arya still sees Sansa as a snooty prissy child that she was before she left for King’s Landing. He puts himself in a situation that could backfire on him. With carefully laid plans there’s always a bit of risk involved. They never really got along. No. There’s a big lack of communication. However, actor Aidan Gillen knows his character is walking a fine line, and his plan could “backfire” at any moment. They don’t really talk about what they’ve gone through. It’s like a f*cking horror movie.”You know who’s loving this? on HBO.Want more stuff like this? And now that they’re back together that’s heightened because they’ve gone down totally different paths and have had to adapt to totally different situations to the point where they don’t see on each other’s level. Arya could’ve killed Sansa at any time, but she handed over the dagger that Littlefinger had given Bran, that Bran gave to Sansa. There are powers much greater than his machinations in play here, and he has to know a short-term win here can never be a long-term gain. Would Sansa kill Arya? Here’s what Gillen told EW:”Watching my plan come to fruition is quite something. […] Arya is certainly lethal and sort of threatening, but when Sansa sends Brienne away, who is Arya’s natural protector, something is coming very soon between them, and it will be violent but surprising.”If one of them were really to die, would he drop that spoiler? This whole thing is frustrating — we just wanted a happy Stark family reunion!Sansa actress Sophie Turner is the one who compared this tension to “a f*cking horror movie” in a talk with Entertainment Weekly:”In the books, it says something about how Arya and Sansa are different sides of the same coin. Between Bran’s emo omniscience and Jon Snow eventually returning, what’s his end game?The Season 7 finale airs Sunday, Aug. His plans are never fail safe. Sounds like he just wanted to leave that impression. I love the fact that these two come back, they’re both lethal, and I just wanted to give the impression, as much as possible, that one of them is going to die. Posted August 23, 2017 by Gina CarboneThe “f*cking horror movie” playing out between Arya Stark, Sansa Stark, and Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish will climax in the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 finale.While most of the main “Game of Thrones” characters gather in King’s Landing for that White Walker summit, the Stark sisters will be at Winterfell climbing the ladder of Littlefinger’s chaos.The Episode 7 finale, titled “The Dragon and the Wolf,” airs in a supersized episode this Sunday, Aug. There’s this underlying tension. We’re very aware of how lethal Arya is, because she’s displayed it over and over again. But you’re not sure which one. So watching her grow in stature is quite enjoyable. They never really had that communication before, and now when it’s vital to do they don’t have that and can’t understand each other. Littlefinger.
