'Game Of Thrones' Stuns Audiences With Season 5's Episode 9 [Spoilers]


George R. R. Martin David Benioff Stephen Dillane Iwan Rheon Carice Van Houten Emilia Clarke

HBO's 'Game of Thrones' has been getting a lot of criticism this year for it's massively dramatic departures from the book series 'A Song of Ice and Fire', upon which the show is based. While series creator George R. R. Martin stated on his official blog "there has seldom been any TV series as faithful to its source material" and reiterated how the show and the books are entirely separate stories, albeit with the same intended ending.

That still doesn't excuse the sudden, unexpected (and rather brutal execution) of a young girl, in Sunday night's infamous Episode Nine 'The Dance of Dragons'. Written by show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the episode saw Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) hounded by Ramsey Bolton's (Iwan Rheon) guerrilla tactics, and offering his daughter Shireen (Kerry Ingram) to the priestess Melisandre (Carice Van Houten) as a sacrifice. Said sacrifice involved burning her alive to appease the Red God, with the hopes of turning their luck and winning him the Iron Throne once and for all.

"dragonsaremylife@badass.com": 'Game Of Thrones' Cast Create Character Email Addresses


Emilia Clarke Finn Jones Carice Van Houten Hannah Murray

The lucky BuzzFeed team were at the season four premiere event for Game of Thrones, and managed to ask the cast some rather personal, but also hilarious questions. BuzzFeed asked the cast members they managed to flag down what email addresses they think that their characters would have, as well as which mythological creature they would take into battle with them.  They didn't get the chance to ask Emilia this question, but we have a sneaking suspicion we know the answer to that one anyway!

emilia clarke game of thrones Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryan in Game of Thrones

First up was Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke. Emilia’s email answer was probably our favourite, responding that Dany’s would probably be “dragonsaremylife@badass.com”. Sounds pretty spot on to us, especially after watching the most recent trailer, which sees her character determinedly claim “I will answer injustice with justice.” We can’t wait to see the Khalessi bring it in season four!

"The Fifth Estate" Is Not The WikiLeaks Film Julian Assange Wanted To See


Benedict Cumberbatch Alicia Vikander Carice Van Houten Stanley Tucci

The first wave of WikiLeaks movies is finally seeing its day and director Bill Condon’s The Fifth Estate like it’s going to be the first fictionalized account out of the gate. The first trailer for the Benedict Cumberbatch starrer has just been released and the film looks just as emotionally charged and grandiose as one would hope a film about the biggest story of the decade would be.

Check out the The Fifth Estate trailer below.

Instead of focusing solely on Julian Assange’s creation and defense of WikiLeaks, The Fifth Estate seems to put the strained friendship between Assange and his early supporter and eventual colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg at the center of the plot, a la The Social Network. Speaking of The Social Network, from the trailer alone it seems that the fictionalized account of Assange’s story might bear a much stronger resemblance to the 2010 David Fincher masterpiece, than the upcoming Jobs, which is clearly aiming for “the new Social Network” status.

The Fifth Estate Trailer


When Julian Assange began to leak damaging governmental information online through WikiLeaks, he was praised as a hero by many for finally showing the truth about unethical military operations such as the famous 'collateral murder' video showing an AH-64 Apache taking aim at some unarmed Iraqi journalists. One supporter, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, became good friends with Julian and eventually worked with him in his truth and justice exploits. However, when hundreds of names of government informers were under threat of being leaked, the pair were at a conflict as Daniel understood that many people's lives were at risk if the information got out while Julian remained determined to enlighten the public.
