The global pandemic of COVID-19 has affected the global economy badly. Some economists predict this economic crisis would be worse than the Great Recession of 2008; whereas it could compare to the Great Depression of 1929. Most industries have had to virtually shut down production. A few of them, however, are trying to cope with the crisis with digital help. The entertainment industry is one of them. The events and film festivals are increasingly opting for virtual routes. And although further production of new content is difficult at the moment, the films and TV series are bargaining deals online; either for digital releases of completed films or for future projects. Saban Films has acquired the US rights for the crime thriller, The Silencing; starring Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Annabelle Wallis, and Hero Fiennes Tiffin.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, the Robin Pront-directed film was an official selection at this year’s SXSW (South by Southwest) Film Festival as a part of its Midnighters Program. Micah Ranum has written The Silencing; and the report describes it as a story that “follows a reformed hunter (Coster-Waldau) living in isolation on a wildlife sanctuary; who becomes involved in a deadly game of cat and mouse when he and the local sheriff set out to track a vicious killer who may have kidnapped his daughter years ago.”

Saban Films partnered with XYZ Films as executive producers for the film while Anova Pictures’ Cybill Lui Eppich produced it. But due to the initial absence of a guarantee of distribution, Saban Films has now officially captured the film rights for the USA market.

Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley talked about the film. “Nikolaj and Annabelle are fantastic in this thrilling tale that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. While we are deeply saddened that it could not premiere at this year’s SXSW, we are honored to be able to share Robin Pront’s film with our audiences.”

SXSW is a festival that celebrates films, interactive media, music, and conferences every year in Austin, Texas, United States. Due to the coronavirus lockdown, the organizers have decided on a virtual festival, where Amazon Prime Video has stepped in. The streaming platform will showcase the films from the fest on Prime Video for 10 days. The event will likely stream free of cost in late April 2020 in the US.

It’s unclear right now whether The Silencing will feature in the list of films premiering in the SXSW virtual fest on Prime Video. The film was initially slated to release on March 14, 2020. But now, we do not have any confirmed release dates. We hope it hits the digital platforms soon.

Photoshoots and campaigns are a big part of a celebrity’s income. However, sometimes they become victims of unfair treatment by publication houses, who use them for publicity. Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) has filed a suit against Flaunt Magazine over inappropriate use of her ‘hot‘ photos.

According to The Blast, she participated in a photoshoot for Flaunt Magazine back in March of 2019. Clarke agreed on a one-time use in the June 2019 issue of the magazine and a single pre-approved promotional event in Shanghai. She claims she made it crystal clear to Flaunt that any other use of the photographs from the shoot was not permitted without her written approval.

Clarke claims Flaunt granted a Chinese cosmetics company, Perfect Diary, rights of her images that were not Flaunt’s to grant. They wrongfully allowed Perfect Diary to commercially exploit her photographs, voice, name and likeness to promote the brand’s products. Clarke had previously turned down a $700,000 offer to work with Perfect Diary. She alleges that numerous cosmetic companies who might have otherwise done business with her were admittedly misled to believe she was already working with one of their competitors.

She and her team repeatedly demanded that Flaunt cease their behaviour. However, they “brazenly refused to curtail or remedy all of its wrongful conduct.” So she filed the lawsuit seeking compensatory and statutory damages to the tune of $5 million.

Other than that, Emilia is currently busy writing her first comic M.O.M. What do you think about the lawsuit? Tell us in the comments below!

The world is fighting hard against the effects of COVID-19 right now. One of the few things that has kept the population distracted from the ongoing stress is the filming of House of The Dragon. The Game of Thrones prequel has caused quite a buzz amongst the fans. Ever since HBO teased the show back in December last year, fans have been on their toes. People all over the world are highly excited about the upcoming series, and leaked photos of the shoot keep pouring in.

Last week, the production came to a standstill when a crew member accidentally drove a truck into the water. Luckily all of the members were saved and no one was injured. It seems the filming has taken flight once again after the incident and is going on well.

These pictures surfaced yesterday on Reddit when a user named Tobeaned uploaded them on the social media platform. Holywell Beach is about half an hour away from his home, so he decided to pay a visit. Turns out, his trip was beneficial to all Game of Thrones fans who are eagerly waiting for House of The Dragon.

Earlier last week, Matt Smith (Daemon) and Emma D’Arcy (Rhaenyra) were spotted filming at the same beach. The above photos indicate that a Targaryen base is also being built on the site.
