Emilia Clarke shines in a raw avatar in the latest trailer of her film Above Suspicion

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you must have built an image of the cast of the show within their specific character frames. It becomes really hard to separate the actor from the character once you’ve seen them do a good job in a particular story. But it’s always pleasantly surprising to watch these actors perform roles which are very different from what we’ve seen. In that spirit, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) is sure to catch you off guard with the latest trailer of her movie, Above Suspicion. It’s a thriller based on a true story that shook the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) in the late 1980s. The movie which first released in June 2019 is available on-demand via disc and digital platforms from July 13, 2020, in the UK. Read on to find out more.

Emilia Clarke plays Susan Smith, a local young woman in a small town in Kentucky, USA. Her troubled life has had its share of abuses and lack of love. Jack Huston plays Mark Putnam; a newly married FBI agent who’s come to the town to nab a serial bank robber. Susan’s own involvement with the underworld circles and her fascination for Mark guides her to become an informant for the FBI. Thus follows a dangerous affair that leads to a disaster for both and a scandal for the FBI; finally culminating in the first-ever murder conviction of an FBI agent. The movie follows the events from a nonfiction novel of the same name by Joe Sharkey; a former New York Times columnist. It also stars Sophie Lowe and Johnny Knoxville in key roles.

The critics have praised the against-the-grain casting of Emilia Clarke; whose bold performance brought out the human side of Susan with equal amounts of gusto and vulnerability. However, Chris Gerolmo’s screenplay and Philip Noyce’s direction has been a mixed bag for most; hitting through its gloomy pull and settings but missing a few beats with the narrative. The trailer walks us through a straight path to ruin through desperation and betrayal; marked by a beyond-the-grave voiceover of Susan Smith. Although the mother of dragons from GoT and Susan are quite different in their attitudes, both find themselves in a world where affection and validation from others (especially males) bring chaos.

So, what are your thoughts about the trailer and the film? Do tell us in the comments section below.

Leaked set picture from House of The Dragon reveals the interior design of the Red Keep

Published

on

Warner Bros erected a new castle set at Watford, possibly the new Red Keep for House of The Dragon

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. The shooting is moving forward at a really fast pace, and HBO has managed to stay rather secretive about it. However, there are some pictures from the shoot that are leaked into the public from time to time, that provide a glimpse of the progress they are making every day. Recently, one of the pictures that was posted accidentally by one of the crew members revealed the interior design of the famed Red Keep, as reported by Watchers on the Wall.

A picture that was posted on the private Instagram account of Stephen Weightman, a key grip, and later reposted by camerarevolution showed various shooting equipment lined up inside a hall that appeared to be similar to Red Keep from Game of Thrones.

At first glance, the picture looks like the inside of the Red Keep. It may be the throne room where King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine) sits on the Iron Throne. It is hard to tell for sure since the camera angle doesn’t show us much of anything.

The most interesting detail is definitely the dragon-themed torch affixed to the wall. It can also be a sea horse, the emblem of House Velaryon, if the picture is from Driftmark. When the Targaryens were ruling the place, they had dragon-related stuff everywhere. They lined the throne room with the skulls of the dead dragons who had served their family before. When Robert Baratheon took over, he got rid of many Targaryen relics, since he had a deep hatred for the family. But way back then, things were different.

Kit Harington looks compelling in Netflix’s Criminal season 2 trailer

Published

Jon Snow

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

Jason Momoa describes Dune as A Very Adult but Beautiful movie

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.

Khal Drogo

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.

What do you expect from the movie? Let us know in the comments below.
