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 Look at Kenneth Branagh’s “Cinderella”

Entertainment Weekly shared the first exclusive photo from the set of Disney’s live-action Cinderella film. Principal photography began on the highly awaited, Kenneth Branagh-directed film yesterday in London, England. This first photo feature Lily James as the iconic and classically beautiful princess.

According to an article on Entertainment Weekly, James is not being portrayed as your typical Cinderella and there will be some subtle changes to the story. In the classic story of Cinderella, she and the Prince (Richard Madden) first meet at the ball. In Branagh’s version, Cinderella meets the Prince before the ball, but he lies and tells her that he’s a palace employee.

In a statement yesterday, Branagh was explaining how happy he is with his cast by saying: “With Lily James we have found our perfect Cinderella. She combines knockout beauty with intelligence, wit, fun and physical grace. Her Prince is being played by Richard Madden, a young actor with incredible power and charisma. He is funny, smart and sexy and a great match for Cinderella.”

Cinderella - First Look

What do you think of this first exclusive look at the new Cinderella film? Are you looking forward to seeing more from the set as production continues? Do you think Branagh is the right director for this project? Will you be heading to theaters when Cinderella is released on March 13, 2015?
