Lena Headey Makes A Killer Team With Karen Gillan in Gunpowder Milkshake Trailer

The cast of Game of Thrones consisted of a host of highly talented actors. Some of them had their careers set up by the show. They sort of grew up with the series, like Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark). Others were already famous and highly decorated, like Lena Headey, who played the villainous Lion Queen Cersei Lannister. Headey will now play the lead role in the movie Gunpowder Milkshake.

The movie’s first trailer, which was released on Tuesday, introduces us to Sam, played by Karen Gillan (Guardian of the Galaxy, Jumanji), a second-generation assassin whose mother (Lena Headey) abandoned her years earlier. However, Sam must reunite with her mother in order to save an eight-year-old girl after a job goes wrong. The two call on a society of underground hitwomen including Carla Gugino (Watchmen), Angela Bassett (Black Panther), and Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon).

There are Gatling guns, characters diving over countertops, mysterious old libraries, car fights, a shootout in a ’50s-style diner. Of course, the movie’s fights have more than just shooting in them. There’s also some hand-to-hand combat, and at least one instance of a character rushing into battle with just two hammers.

Lena has also joined the TV adaptation of Hugh Howey’s sci-fi novel Beacon 23. Are you excited about the upcoming guns-blazing action movie? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones fan creates real-life version of Beric Dondarrion’s flaming sword

Game of Thrones fan creates real-life version of Beric Dondarrion’s flaming sword

Game of Thrones had some of the most iconic weaponry in television history. They have been turned into props and merchandise and are quite sought after. But there are some weapons that have seemed quite impossible to make, that is, until now. Remember when the character Beric Dondarrion used a flaming sword as his trademark weapon and wielded it against the Hound in season 3? He used it against the army of the dead in season 8 as well. A fan has managed to bring fantasy to life, after making a real-life replica of the sword, along with the flames.

YouTube channel Faraway Forge posted a video of the full construction of the sword step by step. In the video below, the man takes you through each and every step of the process all the way to the big flaming final product.

The video shows the full process of making the sword, from start to finish. It appears to have been coated with some kind of material film that supports combustion for longer periods of time. It is truly amazing to watch such a beautiful creation come to life.

What do you think of the real-life replica of the fictional weapon? Talk to us in the comments below!

Amazing Deepfake video turns Elizabeth Olsen into Game of Thrones’ Daenerys Targaryen

Amazing Deepfake video turns Elizabeth Olsen into Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen

Actress Elizabeth Olsen is best known for her superhero character Wanda Maximoff a.k.a the Scarlett Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She has become a household name ever since, gaining immense popularity amongst MCU fans. However, there is another famous character she auditioned for, and botched it horribly. Olsen tried out for the role of Daenerys Targaryen once, and she described the experience as terrible and she wanted to quit it immediately. Since then, many fans have wondered how the MCU actress would have looked in her Game of Thrones avatar. Thanks to the ever-evolving software technology, we finally have an answer.

An incredibly realistic deepfake video from YouTube creator Stryder HD turned Olsen into the Mother of Dragons. The resemblance between Olsen and Clarke in the video is eerily uncanny, and places Olsen in several iconic Daenerys-centric scenes. Check out the video below.

As we know, Emilia Clarke eventually went on to play the iconic Dragon Queen on Game of Thrones, it is interesting to note that both Daenerys and Wanda shared a few similarities. Both the characters have been through a lot, losing a lot of loved ones in the process. And both of them retaliate, one burns a whole city down, the other kidnaps an entire town. So maybe if Olsen had a chance to play Daenerys, she might have done a great job as well.
