Drake gives a shoutout to Arya Stark in Billboard Awards acceptance speech

Game of Thrones is no stranger to celebrity fans. As the show’s greatest episode ever dropped last Sunday with a climax scene that has left the fanbase divided. However, there is at least one superfan that is all for Arya Stark’s big moment — Drake. At the Billboard Music Awards ,he recently gave Arya Stark a shoutout in his award acceptance speech. Read on!

Rapper Drake has been known to enjoy his share of TV series, and like many other celebrities, he is also a fan of Game of Thrones. In Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 3, “The Long Night“, we saw Arya Stark stab the death out of the Night King with her Valyrian Steel dagger, thus saving the day. While the fanbase has split opinion over this climax, Drake showed his support for Winterfell’s resident badass at the Billboard Music Awards 2019. Check it out:

Shout out to Arya Stark for putting in that work last week,” said Drake. He was on the stage to receive the award for Top Billboard 200 Album award for his double album, Scorpion.

However, after this clip went viral, fans began to discuss the well known “Drake curse”. Some even say that this shoutout might bring some bad luck for Arya. This idea stems from a bunch of football players that took pictures with Drake and then went on to lose the next game.

Well, whether Arya is cursed or not will be seen as we approach the end of Game of Thrones. The next episode airs Sunday, May 5. What do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa to star in upcoming film ‘Good Bad & Undead’

Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage & Jason Momoa join hands for an upcoming film by Legendary, Good Bad & Undead

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has not let new productions begin for a while now. And it could take some more time before things start to move around. But it hasn’t stopped the filmmakers, producers, and actors from envisioning future projects. We have seen a few deals being cracked in the virtual film market. Now, there’s one more, and it looks like a helluva adventure. Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) have teamed up as actors and producers for a supernatural drama called Good Bad & Undead. Read on to find out more.

As per Deadline, Legendary, the American film production company, has brought Peter and Jason on board for the film which will have Max Barbakow donning the director’s hat. The report provided a brief description of the film, “In Good Bad & Undead, Dinklage will play Van Helsing, last in a long line of vampire hunters. He develops an uneasy partnership with a vampire (Momoa) who has taken a vow never to kill again. Together, they run a scam from town to town, where Van Helsing pretends to vanquish the vampire for money. But when a massive bounty is put on the vampire’s head, everything in this dangerous world full of monsters and magic is now after them.” Moreover, the report believes that the premise gives a vibe of the action-comedy Midnight Run in a world of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

The film stems from an original idea by Mark Swift and Damian Shannon; it’s most likely that the duo will write the screenplay as well. They have previously written hit movies like Friday the 13th, and Freddy vs. Jason. The director, Max Barbakow comes fresh off the record-breaking purchase of his film, Palm Springs at the Sundance Film Festival in January, 2020. His other film credits include the dark comedy, The Duke, and the autobiographical documentary, Mommy, I’m a Bastard!

Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa played such memorable roles on Game of Thrones yet never shared screen space on the show. Their mutual connection was the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen; for whom both devoted their loyalties in their own different ways. The two actors have done very well for themselves apart from the show. Peter won multiple awards for his GoT performance as Tyrion Lannister through the entire run of the show; he also starred in successful films like Avengers: Infinity War, X-Men: Days of Future Past, My Dinner with Hervé. He will produce Good Bad & Undead with David Ginsberg via their production company, Estuary Films.

Jason Momoa, however, worked on GoT only for the first season. Yet his portrayal of Khal Drogo won over so many people that he has remained a memorable icon of the biggest show on the planet. The American actor seems to be on a roll lately. We have just heard that The Snyder Cut of Justice League will release on HBO Max in 2021. His stint as Aquaman established DC at the box office like no other title before; (yes, not even The Dark Knight Rises!). He has been involved with some exciting projects and rumored for a few others. With upcoming films like Dune and Aquaman 2, he looks set for big things.

Jason Momoa starrer Justice League will re-release with “The Snyder Cut” in 2021 on HBO Max

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa's film Justice League will re-release in the form of The Snyder Cut in 2021 on HBO Max

The final product on our screens, whether it’s a TV show or a film, is a filtered result of many stages of production. Sometimes the content works, sometimes it does not. And it’s only in the aftermath that detailed scrutiny takes place. Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa’s (Khal Drogo) 2017 film, Justice League, was the first cinematic attempt to bring together a DCEU (DC Extended Universe) team (like Marvel’s The Avengers). Despite its superhero-ensemble appeal, the film bombed on both, commercial and critical levels. But for three years, fans had been asking the makers to release the original version directed by Zack Snyder; namely ‘The Snyder Cut’. Now, after a long period of speculation, Zack Snyder himself has made the announcement for the release of the Snyder Cut, called ‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ in 2021 on HBO Max.

Jason Momoa put up the poster for the film on Instagram. “Finally it’s happening,” he wrote. He thanked the fans for their constant support, “justice served. all my aloha to everyone who made this happen. all the fans. we love you”. Zack Snyder, the man behind films like 300 and Man of Steel, had directed most of Justice League when suddenly he had to step down due to a personal tragedy. Joss Whedon (The Avengers) took over and completed the film with certain reshoots and editing. The film was slammed by critics and fans alike due to its ‘light-hearted tone’. With Snyder’s announcement, the fans would hope for an original, darker take on the DCEU.

As per CBR.com, Zack has said that he’s putting together a trailer and that it would release soon. The Snyder Cut will be compiled and edited by Zack Snyder from the initial footage he shot. The film’s release on the streaming platform, HBO Max gives its producers, Warner Media (also the parent company of HBO) another chance of mining the untapped profits from its ambitious franchise.

Recently, Jason Momoa had fueled the clamor by outrightly saying, “Release the fucking Snyder Cut” in a video. “We’re just sitting around doing nothing,” Jason started off. “Fucking release the Snyder Cut, am I right? Release the fucking Snyder Cut. You know what I mean? Like, what are we waiting for? There’s some goodies in there. I’m just gonna go ahead and put it out there. Generally, the shit I put out there comes true. Let’s hope it does,” he said. And it did, indeed!

#ReleaseTheSnyderCut had been trending on social media for quite some time, and many actors from the cast had supported it. Apart from Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), and Ray Fisher (Cyborg) had come out in demand of Zack Snyder’s version of the film. However, Henry Cavill (Superman) chose a neutral stand and wanted to focus on the future.

Now, that the revamped version of the movie will release for sure, we hope it brings a crackling light into the darkness that the cinematic landscape of DC has mostly been. Jason’s character from Justice League also has an upcoming solo movie, Aquaman 2, set to release in December 2022.

Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen's new film, How to Build a Girl releases in the United States

Someone once said, “new is always better”. We know that cannot be true all the time, yet new things do bring a much-required freshness in our lives. And if that new thing revisits an old amazing thing, excitement seeps through us like blood and sweat. Moreover, that’s something we need in the middle of this global crisis we’re in. How to Build a Girl, the film adaptation of Caitlin Moran’s semi-autobiographical novel of the same name, has arrived for audiences in the USA. IFC Films released the coming-of-age comedy film on May 8, 2020, and it stars our favorite lad from the Iron Islands, Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy). Read on to find out more.

How to Build a Girl is the story of Johanna Morrigan, a teenager from Wolverhampton, England in 1993. Cramped in the house with her eccentric parents and four brothers, Johanna is bored and confused, like most teens, about her path ahead. She wants to burst out of her cocoon and live out her fantasies. Her life changes when she comes across an opening for new writers as a rock music critic in a magazine. Although she doesn’t know much about contemporary music, Johanna seizes the chance. But when her earnest opinion doesn’t work, a new hyper-sassy alter-ego, Dolly Wilde, is born. Dolly is a harsh critic, very difficult to please, who assumes a high pedestal for herself. This edgy road leads to meteoric success and fame, but Johanna is nowhere to be seen. What happens when you make yourself up, only to realize the ingredients are not yours!

The film stars Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird, Booksmart) as the 16-year old Johanna Morrigan. Her co-stars are Alfie Allen, Paddy Considine, Chris O’Dowd, and Emma Thompson. Alfie Allen plays a pop singer, John Kite who gets enchanted by Dolly Wilde. The screenplay is penned by Caitlin Moran and John Niven while Coky Giedroyc has directed the film. How to Build a Girl first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September 2019; where it won the FIPRESCI Special Presentations Award.

A few critics have appreciated the message, a tinge of magical realism, and the performances in the film. Beanie Feldstein received praise for her portrayal of a passionate yet wayward teenager whereas Alfie Allen’s cameo got reviews like “straightforward” and “endearing”.

The film could not hit the theaters due to the problems of COVID-19. It released on May 8, 2020, on-demand in the United States. It’s available on IFC Films and Amazon (on rent). The UK release was earlier scheduled for July 3, 2020, but it’s not confirmed at the moment.
