Television Exclusive – Gorgeous New Character Posters Released for “Game of Thrones”

The official Game of Thrones Facebook  recently shared a set of gorgeous new character posters for the upcoming fourth season of the show. There are eighteen (18) new posters and they all feature the phrase “Valar Morghulis” which translates to “all men must die” in High Valyrian (a language that author George R.R. Martin created for the series).

Composition of these posters is rather simple, but very effective in portraying the characters. Some of the major characters that are featured include, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), and Jon Snow (Kit Harington).  Take a look at all of these stunning posters below:

Movie Exclusive – First Extended Trailer for “Godzilla” Released

The first extended trailer for the Gareth Edwards-directed monster epic, Godzilla, has officially been released. We get a closer glance at the sheer amount of destruction and chaos the iconic monster is causing around the world.

Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 12.26.56 PM

In the first teaser trailer, we only got to see the shadow and outline of Godzilla, which gave us an idea of how big he actually was. In this new trailer, however, we finally see some quick albeit detailed shots of the monster that reveal what he truly looks like.

Although this trailer does not reveal too much about character relationships, we do get an idea of the overall storyline of the film. Of course, major cities are being attacked and it is a race against time to defeat Godzilla and save the human race.

Godzilla stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, and David Strathairn.

Are you looking forward to Godzilla being in theaters on May 16, 2014? What do you think of this extended trailer? Godzilla was actually filmed here in Vancouver, BC and my dad was a crew member on the film! I am quite proud of the work that has been done and the film looks like it is going to be one action-packed adventure!

Although Noah is based off of the classic biblical story of Noah’s Ark, it is going to focus in on details of the story and have a more gritty and realistic feel to it. The overall purpose of the ark will be slightly different and it will not be used to travel. Instead, the ark will simply be used to stay safe during the major weather event. Watch the exhilarating new trailer below:

Noah has quite an extensive cast and stars Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, and Anthony Hopkins. Plus, actors Douglas Booth, Kevin Durand, Martin Csokas, Mark Margolis, Sami Gayle, and Madison Davenport also star in this epic.
