January saw the release of the first look photos from Season 5 of Game Of Thrones, while last week we got to see Arya Stark’s New Look, as well as the Game Of Thrones covers for Entertainment Weekly.
Now, the magazine has another sneak peek at the HBO series with some new images from Season 5, as well as pictures and outtakes from their exclusive cover photoshoot with the cast. Check them out here below, along with all the previously released photos from the upcoming season.
While there are several all-new images, some of EW’s photos are ones that HBO previously released, such as the one here at top of Carice van Houten as Melisandre The Red Woman; while others are variations on previously shot scenes.
Day one of San Diego Comic-Con was host to a meeting of three of the best directors working today, as Entertainment Weekly brought fans a discussion of all things movies with their “Visionaries” panel. On hand to discuss their work was Edgar Wright (The World’s End, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World), Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), and Marc Webb (Amazing Spider-Man).
The panel was a chance to hear the directors talk about the process of their current films. Cuaron spoke at length about the issues they had simulating the zero G conditions needed to film Gravity, including creating a special room that was just an empty box that a camera would move around in. He also talked about how Gravity stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock would try to imitate the director’s Mexican accent (he said though that they sounded more Cuban than Mexican). Cuaron explained how Steven Spielberg’s Duel was a big influence on Gravity.
Webb also spoke of similar issues that went into the filming of the Amazing Spider-Man 2. Webb talked about using Electro as a villain not just because of his powers, but also because it forces Spider-Man to think of creative ways to defeat him. Webb was also excited to show off the visuals of Electro, which is something that drove him to use him as the villain. Webb then spoke to how the documentary Fog of War influenced Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Yesterday we reported that Disney and Lucasfilm were ramping up their long-term grand plans for Star Wars with the announcement that they would be developing a series of movies set apart from Episode VII and on that would focus on individual characters from the Star Wars universe, including a possible Yoda movie.
Entertainment Weekly today broke an exclusive addendum to that revelation with the news that both Han Solo, the roguish but lovable space smuggler that helped make Harrison Ford a star in the original Star Wars movies, and Boba Fett, the masked intergalactic bounty hunter who had little screen time in the original trilogy but has since become a huge fan favorite character, might also be headlining their own standalone movies.
For it’s annual Cast Reunions issue Entertainment Weekly has once again assembled the stars of several notable films and television series for retrospective portraits. The magazine has also posted videos from four of the photo shoots on its website: The Princess Bride; Aliens; Fatal Attraction; and Office Space.
The videos make for a good watch and it’s cool to see most of the cast members of some of my favorite movies getting together to reminisce about the good old days. One thing that struck me as odd was Cary Elwes’ lack of a British accent in his interview for the Princess Bride shoot. Is he going Christian Bale on us?
Entertainment Weekly magazine has revealed the cover for its upcoming Fall 2011 Movie Preview issue and, unsurprisingly, the film its featuring is the first movie in The Twilight: Breaking Dawn two-parter.
The covers is a snapshot from the much-talked-about waterfall scene from The Twilight: Breaking Dawn: Part 1. The picture shows a bikini-clad Bella (Kristen Stewart) and her shirt-less vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) in the water with their arm wrapped around each other. (You can see a similar, previously released image from the waterfall scene here below.)
