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.

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

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

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.

Maisie Williams recreates Arya Stark’s iconic Night King kill move for her new show ‘Two Weeks To Live’

Arya vs night king

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.

Maisie Williams

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.
