The new Penny Dreadful series starring Game of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer is all set to release next month. During the time when the production and release of various films and series’ are getting postponed due to Coronavirus, the news of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels releasing as per schedule comes as a relief.
The trailer of the series was released a couple of weeks ago and it really piqued the interest of the audiences. Now, in the latest sneak peek video Dormer and the cast can be seen speaking about the show.
In the series, Dormer is playing a shape-shifting demon that has issues with mankind and creates chaos in the 1930s Los Angeles. Speaking about her character to Entertainment Weekly, Dormer had said that she would be taking three different guises on the show. “The audience will discover who those identities are as they continue to watch the show.”
Below is the behind-the-scenes clip of the series:
In the video, Dormer’s character Magda can be seen predicting the future and says there will be a time “when the nation will battle the nation when the race will devour race and when brother will kill brother.”
The cast also spoke about the show, that while it is dealing with supernatural forces, it is also dealing with the demons residing inside the characters as well.
The official synopsis of the series states:
“When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.”
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is going to premiere on April 26 at 10/9c only on Showtime.

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.
