Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams has emerged as one of the most popular stars from the show. Even after Thrones, she is going to be seen on many exciting projects and in many exciting roles. One of them is The New Mutants and we have some latest news on the same. Read on to find out more!

As per Entertainment Weekly, Williams will be seen having the same-sex relationship with her co-star Blu Hunt. Williams will be playing the character of Rahne Sinclair in the film and her character will be seen in a romantic relationship with the character of Danielle Moonstar played by Hunt.

Speaking about the relationship Williams said:

“Rahne and Dani have a telepathic connection in the comics, and so we just wanted to extend that in the film and put that within reality. If they really could understand each other on that level, then you’d probably end up falling in love with that person.”

She added:

“It’s not really a story about these two characters understanding their sexuality. It’s not centered around that and they don’t really necessarily label it. No one else does either and no one really questions it.”

A few weeks ago, some very intriguing images of Williams were revealed from the film. The New Mutants is one of the much-awaited and delayed films of Marvel. It was supposed to release some time ago but got delayed due to various reasons. However, despite all the delays, the buzz has remained high for the film and fans are awaiting its release with bated breath.

As per the latest news, The New Mutants has been delayed once again due to the coronavirus spread. The film was supposed to release on April 3rd but has been postponed for time being.

Someone once said, “new is always better”. We know that cannot be true all the time, yet new things do bring a much-required freshness in our lives. And if that new thing revisits an old amazing thing, excitement seeps through us like blood and sweat. Moreover, that’s something we need in the middle of this global crisis we’re in. How to Build a Girl, the film adaptation of Caitlin Moran’s semi-autobiographical novel of the same name, has arrived for audiences in the USA. IFC Films released the coming-of-age comedy film on May 8, 2020, and it stars our favorite lad from the Iron Islands, Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy). Read on to find out more.

How to Build a Girl is the story of Johanna Morrigan, a teenager from Wolverhampton, England in 1993. Cramped in the house with her eccentric parents and four brothers, Johanna is bored and confused, like most teens, about her path ahead. She wants to burst out of her cocoon and live out her fantasies. Her life changes when she comes across an opening for new writers as a rock music critic in a magazine. Although she doesn’t know much about contemporary music, Johanna seizes the chance. But when her earnest opinion doesn’t work, a new hyper-sassy alter-ego, Dolly Wilde, is born. Dolly is a harsh critic, very difficult to please, who assumes a high pedestal for herself. This edgy road leads to meteoric success and fame, but Johanna is nowhere to be seen. What happens when you make yourself up, only to realize the ingredients are not yours!

The film stars Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird, Booksmart) as the 16-year old Johanna Morrigan. Her co-stars are Alfie Allen, Paddy Considine, Chris O’Dowd, and Emma Thompson. Alfie Allen plays a pop singer, John Kite who gets enchanted by Dolly Wilde. The screenplay is penned by Caitlin Moran and John Niven while Coky Giedroyc has directed the film. How to Build a Girl first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September 2019; where it won the FIPRESCI Special Presentations Award.

A few critics have appreciated the message, a tinge of magical realism, and the performances in the film. Beanie Feldstein received praise for her portrayal of a passionate yet wayward teenager whereas Alfie Allen’s cameo got reviews like “straightforward” and “endearing”.

The film could not hit the theaters due to the problems of COVID-19. It released on May 8, 2020, on-demand in the United States. It’s available on IFC Films and Amazon (on rent). The UK release was earlier scheduled for July 3, 2020, but it’s not confirmed at the moment.

The Coronavirus pandemic has shaken up the entire world. Just like every other aspect of our lives, even the entertainment industry has not been spared by the virus. Plenty of movies and series have already been moved as the productions were halted. However, there is some good news for the fans. A few of the movies that were scheduled to release earlier this year including Maisie Williams starrer The New Mutants now have a release date. Read on!

Disney recently announced that few of its pending movies like Mulan, Black Widow, and The New Mutants now have a release date. While Mulan will hit the theatres on July 24th, Black Widow will be releasing on November 6th. As per The Verge, The New Mutants has been scheduled to release on August 28th.

The New Mutants has been waiting for its release for years now and it was finally going to release in April this year. However, as fate would have it, the coronavirus pandemic arrived and the film had to be pushed once again.

The film went to the production in 2016 and finished filming in 2017. However, the film owned by Fox then kept getting pushed to give chance to other films to succeed. The synopsis states that the film is based on a group of young mutants who have been held for monitoring. It states:

“The horror thriller set in an isolated hospital where a group of young mutants is being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences begin to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.”

The film also consists of a same-sex relationship between the character played by Maisie Williams and co-star Blu Hunt. It is path-breaking in many ways for a film under the Marvel’s banner.

It’s a shame that fans have had to wait for the film for such a long time. Now that it has a release date we hope that it doesn’t get pushed further and we get to root for our favourites.

Whenever you remember a film or TV show, there are some memorable moments or characters that you instantly recall. Game of Thrones has had plenty of such moments and characters. Still, some of them stand out from the rest. Tormund Giantsbane fascinated us beyond our expectations. The fierce wildling, played by Kristofer Hivju, became a symbol of free will, courage, and madness. Now, Nerdist reports that Hivju is ready for yet another role that fits this raw, charming, and beastly mold. But this time, Hivju has lent his voice to an animated cartoon. He will play Jormungandr, a beloved Viking wrestling champion in the upcoming episode of DisneyXD’s DuckTales, “The Rumble for Ragnarok!”.

DuckTales is an American animated TV series running in its third season currently. It is a reboot of the original animated series of the late ‘80s. The sneak peek into the episode shows us that Jormungandr is a giant serpent, who may look like a lizard. He is in a wrestling ring surrounded by the cheers of the fallen warriors of Valhalla. The battle will now be fought for the fate of the Earth, where the fighters from Team Earth will face off against Team Valhalla. Leading Ragnarok (an apocalyptic war) is “the baby face People’s Champ”, Jormungandr. And his foe is none other than “the Gilded Greed Monger, the Hated Hoarder, and the Infamous Millionaire Miser”, Scrooge McDuck; who plays the role of a villainous heel.

We are quite certain that all fans of DuckTales would remember the cruel, rich old man – Scrooge McDuck; whose heart skips multiple beats at the thought of spending money but who manages to retain his humanity in times of crisis. Here, he seems ready to fight in his wrestling outfit while his grandnephews and Launchpad (his pilot) watch on. Before entering into the ring, Scrooge, being true to his nature, collects “back taxes” from the people on the ringside. Later in the episode, Dewey (one of the grandnephews) will have to accept his inner heel and defeat Jormungandr in a battle royale to save the Earth.

It’s a refreshing change of pace to see Kristofer playing such a fun and powerful role in animation. All the more so, because his voice and dialogues aptly complement Jormungandr’s personality. The experience with Tormund must have helped here, as just like the wildling, Jormungandr too is a roaring delight. Hivju’s other forthcoming role is in the second season of The Witcher, where he plays Nivellen; a brief yet pivotal character. The COVID-19 situation had stopped the filming and production of The Witcher 2. We’re not sure when the work will resume and whether it will stick to its release in 2021 or not.

Kristofer Hivju had tested positive for coronavirus. But after several weeks of self- isolation with his family, he told us that he had recovered completely. Another Game of Thrones actor who tested positive for COVID-19 was Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand). Sadly, we are unaware of her current situation. We wish her good health and a speedy recovery.
