Game of Thrones Season 6 has enough mysteries on its plate to fill a banquet, but one among them has gone largely overlooked.

Nick Frost is back, but not with his Cornetto Trilogy buddies Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg. The 'Cuban Fury' trailer showcases the 'World's End' star and Chris O'Dowd in a 'So You Think You Can Dance'-like salsa battle for the heart of Rashida Jones.
Bryan Singer's 'Jack the Giant Slayer' has been a big question mark since the picture got bumped from June of this year to March 1, 2013. But now there's a new trailer that makes it look like it could be some fun. Maybe.
