Game of Thrones Season 5 has promised for months that the world of Westeros would contract, bringing more and more long-separated characters together. Tonight’s “The Gift” finally delivered on one of the biggest crossovers in Game of Thrones history, atop yet another shocking turn back in Kings’ Landing. Our full review!
All week long Game of Thrones has been teasing its musical extravaganza with Coldplay for Red Nose Day, first with Westeros’ main man Tyrion, then older brother Jaime. Now, the whole Game of Thrones crew has assembled for a full-length musical sketch, and in no uncertain terms … Rastafarian Targaryens are coming.
At least these Terminator Genisys posters are better than the first look we got at the characters last year — you know, those images in which all the actors are waving guns around and shouting. This new set of characters posters is a bit more subdued, although much, much heavier on the Photoshop to the point where they look painted.
For awhile, the marketing for Terminator Genisys sidestepped around the actual plot of the film, selling nostalgia for the older movies in the series and the return of a more grizzled and gray Arnold Schwarzenegger to his signature role. And then the latest trailer arrived and, seemingly out of desperation, gave away the film’s big plot twist. Now, the latest poster for the film gives it away again. Either this reveal isn’t as big of a twist as everyone expected or Paramount is getting a little antsy to get butts in seats.
In which we give serious consideration to why last night's 'Game of Thrones' hour "High Sparrow" wouldn't show us an older man's exposed genitals. Someone has to do it.
Ready or not, the next installment in the Terminator franchise is coming soon. This quartet of international trailers offers up new footage, and while some of it is a bit repetitive (how many times can you listen to Arnold Schwarzenegger say “I’ll be back”? Four, apparently), there are some interesting action pieces we haven’t seen before. Matt Smith is still conspicuously absent, however.
The last Terminator Genisys trailer was so convoluted and confusing that ScreenCrush editor Mike Sampson and I spent an entire piece trying to figure out the plot of the film. (We were not successful, either.) At the very least, the new Genisys spot makes things a bit clearer. Right off the bat they also reveal one significant plot twist: John Connor (Jason Clarke) has been mechanized by Skynet and the evil computers of the future, and sent back in time to kill his mother Sarah (Emilia Clarke). Also, I just realized that Sarah and John Connor are played in this film by two actors with the same last name. Which, whoa. And, of course, there’s also Arnold Schwarzenegger back as the T-800, but this time he’s an older model who’s Sarah Connor’s protector. How and why remains to be seen, but hey, that’s why you’ve got to buy a ticket. To figure out how a robot can age and learn to a be a good guy who smiles awkwardly. (Very awkwardly.)
Game of Thrones has opened its iron doors for another year with Sunday’s Season 5 premiere, but what striking tone does it set for “The Wars to Come”? We break down that shocking death and tonight’s premiere for what it means toward Game of Thrones Season 5 to come.
'Game of Thrones' Season 5 puts the women in power as alliances shift, characters converge and airplane-sized dragons scorch the skies of George R.R. Martin's Westeros. Our early spoiler-free review, before the HBO premiere on April 12!
Throughout the marketing for Terminator Genisys, we haven’t really seen much (if at all) of J.K. Simmons, who appears to play a detective who helps Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor in the upcoming prequel-sequel-alternate timeline-something-or-other. That changes now with a new TV spot in which the recent Oscar-winner features prominently, also offering up some new footage from the film.
