Joe Dempsie (Gendry) stars in the trailer of Channel-4 drama “Adult Material”

Published

Every new story we hear or see brings a new perspective and new world to gaze at or ponder upon. Game of Thrones lit the medieval fire of historical kingdoms and wars with an icy spin of fantasy on top of it. We saw dragons, giants, and magic as much a part of the world as human beings and their scheming. Now, a new four-part drama, Adult Material by Channel 4 starring Joe Dempsie (Gendry Baratheon) is at our doors with “an inside look” into the adult film industry and our society’s part in it. The trailer is out, and it’s boldly revealing yet strongly moving! The trailer is marked with a clear age-restricted warning; Strong language and scenes of an adult and sexual nature from the start. So, viewer discretion is advised.

It’s the story of Jolene Dollar, played by Hayley Squires, a working professional in the porn industry. Jolene is a mother of three and tries to lead a normal life like everyone else. She wears her heart on her sleeve and feels proud to be working in the only field where “women get paid more than men”. Joe Dempsie plays Rich, Jolene’s loving and supportive partner/husband.

Jolene’s life starts taking a different course when she meets a young girl, Amy (played by Siena Kelly); she’s a new entry into the industry. Since Amy is not much older than her eldest daughter, Phoebe (played by Alex Jarret), Jolene feels protective about her and forms a bond. A series of events and choices on Amy’s part cause both their lives to turn on their heads while revealing the faces of those around them in the industry and society. The trailer very well presents a roller-coaster ride through Jolene’s life where the ups and downs of a different life are met by her head-on. She is the clear star of the show.

We remember Joe Dempsie as the bastard of Robert Baratheon. After short stints in the earlier seasons, Gendry played an important part in the final battle against White Walkers. His romance with Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) was one of the most talked-about things from the last season of Game of Thrones.

Dempsie is in the background in this new drama and plays a supporting role. But his simple demeanor and reactions set up his character pretty nicely. We hope he finds better luck than Gendry did with Arya at the end.

The cast also includes Rupert Everett, Kerry Godliman, Julian Ovenden, and Phil Daniels in significant roles. Lucy Kirkwood has created and directed the series which will likely have four episodes. Channel 4 describes it as a drama that “will interrogate what’s real, what’s fake, what’s up for sale, and the impact that these things have on the individuals involved”. The trailer didn’t give out any release dates, but it’s coming soon perhaps.

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.

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.

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.
