Last week, we announced that Game of Thrones vet Peter Dinklage was reportedly joining Avengers: Infinity War and the Untitled Avengers sequel that comes afterward. While the details of who exactly he will be in the upcoming movies were not announced, many fans speculated that the actor would most likely play Pip The Troll, buddy of Adam Warlock who plays a significant part in the Infinity Gauntlet series, which the upcoming films is reportedly based on. Given the actor’s size, that’s what many assume. Of course, he could also play any number of Marvel’s cosmic characters, including MODOK, or even the Living Tribunal. With production about to start for both movies in Atlanta very soon, everyone’s getting ready for filming, and that means getting their hair ready.
He is the god of tits and wine. He drinks and he knows things. He is Peter Dinklage, and he is awesome. The actor famous for his role as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones is rumored to jump from one fan feverish franchise right back to another one. Taking him from Westeros to the Cinematic Universe of Marvel. (more…)
Pixels is the classic Hollywood tale of something interesting and new shoved through the Hollywood meat-grinder, mangled and twisted into something horrifyingly repulsive. Seriously, the only thing the Adam Sandler Pixels movie is good for is helping you get a nap in on a lazy Sunday afternoon. An afternoon so lazy you can’t bring yourself to exert the energy to reach for the remote to change the channel as you drift off into sleep. I found myself nodding off just watching this Honest Trailers look at the disaster that is Pixels. (more…)
It is practically impossible to find a person in an English speaking country right now who hasn’t heard of Game of Thrones. The HBO show has taken western culture by storm in a way that is almost unrivalled by any other piece of modern popular culture. Based on the still unfinished series of novels by George R. R. Martin, the series has launched the fantasy genre into mainstream viewing in an almost unique way. (more…)
Yet again, it’s another movie that sets my Dredd Sequel Senses screaming into the night. We can get a movie about Angry Birds from a one-dimensional point and click video game, but we can’t see Karl Urban‘s Dredd bring justice and save Mega City One from Judge Death. No… we’ve got to see this. Just click-through and watch the damn trailer, I’m to angry to write any more intro. (more…)
I was really hoping that someone had photo-shopped an Iron Throne made out of Emmys instead of swords because it would be very apropos to Game of Thrones virtual sweep last night at the 67th Annual Emmy Awards. The HBO series grabbed 12 Emmy Awards last night, breaking West Wing‘s (1st Season) 9 Emmy award wins in 2000 for a single season. Game of Thrones had earlier won 8 Emmy awards at the Creative Arts Emmys which celebrates technical and other similar achievements in American television programming. Which four did the series win last night to push them over the top? (more…)
While Peter Dinklage has been killing it on Game of Thrones, his voice over work in Destiny has left quite a lot to be desired by players. Most chalked it up to the actor taking a job he really wasn’t interested in and when they lob great handfuls of cash in your face for a few hours work in a studio, who can blame him for cashing in. Yesterday the big 2.0 Destiny patch went live with the added replacement of Dinklage’s voice over work as Ghost by veteran voice actor Nolan North. How do the two compare? (more…)
Like the “average” summer movie fare, Pixels has good stuff and bad stuff. Like most films that want to be profitable and seen as a “hit” in the eyes of the public, the question must that must be asked is “does the good stuff outweigh the bad stuff?” If you’re an eager pre-teen movie-goer, a parent of an eager pre-teen movie-goer, or a thirtysomething who really digs some deep-reaching retro references, then Pixels is probably right up your alley. And if you don’t fall into one of those categories? Well, let’s just say that your princess might be in another castle.
Disney has been going trigger happy with their acquisition and production of Live-Action re-tellings of their animated works due to the overwhelming popularity of Maleficent & Cinderella these past two years. So their roster of films currently includes The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Pinocchio, Tinker Bell, and Cinderella’s Prince. Yeah you saw that right, The Prince is getting a prequel live-action, but they aren’t stopping there.
Maidens of Westerous get ready to swoon, the Halfman is about to pick up the mic and let loose with some rocking crooning. To help the comedy fundraiser Red Nose Day, Peter Dinklage teamed up with Coldplay to deliver the best musical Game of Thrones wrap up ever put to music. (more…)
