'Game Of Thrones' Cast Comment On Increased Workload During Season 7


Emilia Clarke Peter Dinklage

There's no denying the incredible cultural impact HBO fantasy series 'Game Of Thrones' has had over the six seasons that have aired to-date. Based on the incomplete novel series 'A Song of Ice and Fire' by George R. R. Martin, the show tells the story of a group of self-proclaimed leaders of various sections in the fictional land of Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms (and beyond), all vying for control of the entire nation and the Iron Throne that resides in King's Landing.

Following the season six finale, it was Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) who found herself on the throne, having lost all of her children to a variety of different deaths and killing off some of her adversaries in a wicked plot that snatched the life of fan favourite character, Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer).

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri Trailer


Somebody messed with the wrong mother when they murdered her daughter Angela Hayes (Kathryn Newton). Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) will stop at nothing to make sure that her child's killer is caught and after several months of still no arrests, she decides to take drastic action. She forks out for three enormous billboards to go up in her Missouri town with a message to the highly respected Police Sheriff Bill Willoughby (Woody Harrelson). An embarrassed Willoughby visits her to encourage her to take the billboards down, but she's standing firm and will certainly not be intimidated by police involvement - or, indeed, anyone who dares complain about them. She assaults her dentist with his own drill after discovering that he made a complaint and attacks two local high school kids who try to mock her. Even the local vicar is trying to appeal to her sanity at this point, but when she torches the local police station, it becomes clear that she's quickly becoming way out of control.

The Angry Birds Movie Review

Very Good

There's nothing particularly memorable about this frantic animated romp, which adapts the iconic phone-app game into a movie using a rather corny plot. But the film is so random that it can't help but get the audience laughing. Youngsters will be delighted by the brightly coloured wackiness, while adults will chuckle at the steady stream of grown-up visual and verbal gags, many of which are frankly surprising to find in a children's movie.

It's set on the isolated Bird Island, where the residents have never learned how to fly and believe they are the only life in the sea. In their tight-knit community, Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) is an outcast because of his too-independent thinking. He's ordered to take anger management classes with groovy guru Matilda (Maya Rudolph), where his fellow students are the hyperactive Chuck (Josh Gad), the hulking Terence (Sean Penn) and the explosive Bomb (Danny McBride). Then a pig named Leonard (Bill Hader) arrives on the island, introducing new technology like sling shots and trampolines and planning a big party. But of course he has a much more nefarious intention that only Red can see. In need of help, Red takes Chuck and Bomb in search of the mythical Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage), the only bird on the island who can fly.

There's a slightly nagging sense that Donald Trump wrote this script (it's about a guy who's ignored as he obnoxiously shouts about the dangers of letting strangers into the community, then is proved right). But the film is so utterly ridiculous that it's impossible to take this rather dodgy theme seriously. What's even more odd is how much of the humour is aimed at grown-ups, including innuendo, puns, gross-out gags and unexpected violence, most of which will go over young viewers' heads. But it's so unfocussed that the only response is to laugh in disbelief that someone thought a joke so near-the-knuckle was appropriate for a kids' movie.

Kit Harrington's Jon Snow seems to have bitten the dustKit Harington's Jon Snow seems to have bitten the dust

Cersei's Arrest: Lena Headey has put in a great performance from the start, making the incestuous, alcoholic and power-hungry Cersei Lannister both a compelling and hated character since the show's first episode. That said, seeing her chickens coming home to roost when Jonathan Pryce's High Sparrow took the power she had given him, and threw her in prison for her various crimes.
