Game Of Thrones fans are about to get so much Dorne, they won’t know whether to fight or throw orgies. Enigmatic lover, family man and fearsome fighter Oberyn Martell was a fantastic addition to last season’s consistently unpredictable forays. With Spain playing the part of his homeland, we’re going to see a ton of his homies and kin. But it’s not all about Dorne, we’ve got a couple other Westerosi to contend with too. Book readers are sure to froth over some of these mentions and we finally find out which of the Red Viper’s daughters Keisha Castle-Hughes is playing. Here’s a quick hint: all our guesses were wrong. And to commemorate our failure, HBO provided us with two videos to watch with varied levels of satisfaction.

‘Daredevil’ Series Goes Jive Turkey! – Show Runner Says It Will Have “1970′s New York Feel”

JIVE

The El Capitan Theater hosted the World Premiere of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy last night in Hollywood, California. I guess the phrase “star-studded” could be thrown in here for cliche’ purposes, but we’re just digging on what one dude had to say. Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight was jacked up on the Red Carpet by Marvel Entertainment’s online reporter and immediately told her that he can reveal “absolutely nothing.” Then he goes on to spill just about everything he knows. From the back-in-the-day feel of the show to tidbits about Wilson Fisk’s personality, DeKnight lays it on her real groovy. Can you dig it? (more…)

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Directors Announced

- 07-17-14TV, Uncategorized Posted by Brandon Marcus

GoT

Although season four just ended, people are already dying for season five of Game of Thrones. The hit HBO show has become must-see TV. In fact, I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t watch the show. With good reason too! While GoT may have a weak storyline or character here or there, it’s always engrossing, always exciting and – more times than not – usually pretty upsetting.

Many don’t know what’s coming in the next season but we do know who will direct it. HBO has revealed the directors for season five and it’s a mix of newcomers and seasoned pros, but mostly newcomers. It’s a small group of guys (and only guys – more on that later…) but you have to remember the show only has ten episodes a season. But these five men will be getting quite a fill because they are all taking on double duty.

So who will be bringing the bloodshed and battles and boobs next season? Let’s have a look.  (more…)

The rotating door to the production of a future Masters of the Universe movie turns again, and as we say goodbye to G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu, we say hello to Jeff Wadlow, who is now rumored to be the man for the job for the big screen trip back to Eternia. Is Wadlow the filmmaker to break this deadlock and bring us a live-action He-Man again? No one – except maybe the Shadow – knows. (more…)

In a move I find personally quite gratifying, director JJ Abrams has admitted that his decision to…well, LIE about Benedict Cumberbatch‘s identity as Star Trek villain Khan Noonien-Singh (and to instruct the screenwriters and performers to do the same) was, perhaps, in error.

The Star Trek: Into Darkness director spoke to MTV saying (in part) that it:

probably would have been smarter just to say upfront
