Coronavirus lockdowns have forced us into our homes. But this has been a time of reflection and discovery for us as individuals as well as a society. Amidst growing concern for the health of our fellow people, once in a while, we receive an update that makes us excited for the future. Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa has just shared one such development. It’s a peek into his upcoming sci-fi film, Dune, slated to release on December 18, 2020. And it looks like a breathtaking adventure.
Jason shared quite a few pictures on his Instagram, introducing us to the many characters of the film. Vanity Fair originally released the photos offering an inside look at the one of a kind story. “Honored to be a part of Denis Villeneuve’s new film Dune. I play Duncan Idaho – What Denis has created is pretty damn special,” Jason wrote. Check out all the pictures in his post, below:
The director, Denis Villeneuve has adapted Frank Herbert’s famous science fiction novel, Dune, published in 1965. Denis has earlier directed other sci-fi films like Arrival and Blade Runner 2049.
Momoa further wrote warm words for the team of the film. “Much love to the cast and crew that I got to work with on this project. Excited for this one.” The story is a battle for control over the desert-wasteland planet, Arrakis. Not for the planet itself, but due to a valuable resource that’s mined from here; melange or “the spice”. It’s a drug that gives immense abilities to the mind which enables space travel and prolonged life. But the dusty catch lies in the fact that the planet is inhospitable to life, and “the spice” is protected by giant sandworms. House Atreides faces imminent danger from the House Harkonnen who are political rivals. Hence, it’s a coming-of-age tale with strong political, religious, and ecological undertones; it’s said to have set the stage for modern blockbusters like Star Wars and Game of Thrones.
Dune has a stellar cast set in an interstellar backdrop. Timothée Chalamet stars as Paul, a young man who is the heir to House Atreides. Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides and Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Paul’s parents. Jason Momoa plays Duncan Idaho and Josh Brolin plays Gurney Halleck, both of whom are warriors defending and training Paul. Sharon Duncan-Brewster plays Dr. Liet Kynes, an ecologist from Arrakis. Stellan Skarsgård is Baron Vladimir, the leader of House Harkonnen. Javier Bardem and Zendaya play Stilgar and Chani, members of the native Fremen tribe of Arrakis. Dave Bautista stars as Glossu Rabban, a cruel Harkonnen loyal. We hope the fans of the novel would easily identify the characters.
Many people have made attempts at adapting Dune for the big and small screen; albeit they haven’t really been successful. Produced by WarnerBros, the latest film will only cover half of the novel and the next half will be told in a second movie. It seems to be a good strategy to tackle a narrative as complex as Dune. We wish the team well and hope to see a spectacle. Moreover, we can’t help but notice the exciting work that Jason Momoa’s doing lately.

Kit Harington looks compelling in Netflix’s Criminal season 2 trailer
Watching our favorite stars play out a radically different character has always been a matter of interest. One of the most likable characters on our favorite show Game of Thrones was Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington. Unlike Jon, Kit seems to know something in Criminals season 2 trailer.
Kit plays the role of a smug estate agent, who is accused of rape. He gets frustrated about being questioned about the same in the trailer. The show’s setting gives you chills as he establishes himself as a self-entitled rich guy who gets what he wants. His angry outbursts only make it worse for him. But is he guilty?
Harington’s new character is a far cry from his bumbling, humble, and heroic character of Jon Snow. Jon Snow was a life-changing role for Kit (Check out his farewell speech for Game of Thrones), but the new edgy role will solidify his versatility. Not to mention his new haircut for the show, sure to gather some attention.
The Netflix series turned in heads after the introduction of its cast for season two. Other than Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, the show has cast 3 more extremely talented artists. Kunal Nayyar from The Big Bang Theory, Sophie Okonedo, an Oscar nominee, and Sharon Horgan from the comedy Catastrophe will also be seen in the series.
From not knowing anything as Jon Snow, to a cunning, perverted estate agent, Kit Harington has come a long way. Being a fan favorite on one of the biggest TV shows ever made, his job will not be easy as a different character. We can be sure he can pull it off with his amazing acting skills.

Jason Momoa looks badass in the new ‘Dune’ movie trailer
Some actors in Hollywood are famous for their macho style. Jason Momoa has made a name for himself in that category, in each of his roles. Be it Khal Drogo of Game of Thrones, or Arthur Curry of Aquaman, the actor reeks of badassery. He has done it yet again as Duncan Idaho in the latest movie adaptation of the sci-fi novel Dune.
Jason Momoa sports an unbearded look as Duncan Idaho in the Dune movie trailer. He looks menacing even without his beard. His character, Duncan, is a total badass in House Atreides. Jason compared his character to Han Solo of Star Wars in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.
Momoa received widespread praise for his work as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. His character as a powerful warlord, who was the leader of a huge Dothraki army created an impactful image in the audience’s mind. It was so impressive people used to get confused if he knew English at all! Jason played the role for 10 episodes in season 1.
Dune is an award-winning novel written by author Frank Herbert in 1965. Dune was first adapted for the big screen by David Lynch in 1984. It was a success on the box-office and the film is still revered by its fans. The new adaptation of the movie holds great promise and the fans are expecting it to be much better than the previous version.
The director of the new Dune movie is Denis Villeneuve. The movie is set to release on 18th December 2020. It is predicted to be one of the major films of this year. The presence of Jason Momoa makes it all the more exciting to watch.

Maisie Williams recreates Arya Stark’s iconic Night King kill move for her new show ‘Two Weeks To Live’
Game of Thrones will always have a special place in all our hearts. It is a revered TV series for both fans and the crew alike. There has been a tradition in film industry to provide Easter eggs related to a franchise that has made an impact on pop culture. One such Easter egg was spotted in Maisie Williams’ new action-comedy Two Weeks To Live.
A recent clip of one of the episodes revealed a welcome surprise for the fans of Game of Thrones. In that scene, Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Kim is being attacked by an unknown individual. Maisie retaliates in a way that was reminiscent of her role Arya Stark from Game of Thrones.

Maisie’s character, Kim, attacks back the same way Arya Stark did against the Night King. In Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3, Arya appeared out of nowhere to attack the Night King, played by Vladimir Furdik. The Night King grabs her by the throat, and all hope seems lost. Arya pulls off a surprise move by slipping her dagger to her other hand and stabbing the night king, killing him.
In the TV series Two Weeks To Live, Maisie pulls off a similar stunt. It was a subtle nod to a tribute to her former role. As Kim, she stands back to her attacker by slipping a glass bottle to her other hand, and smashing it on his head.
The scene was definitely a wow moment for her fans. It was also a chance for the actress to relive her time as Arya. What do you think about the show? Tell us in the comments below.
