Game of Thrones

In November of 2008, it was announced that HBO had ordered a pilot episode for Game of Thrones, a potential new series based on George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels. If a series was ordered, the plan was to make each season based on a book in the series — the first season being of course based on A Game of Thrones. Almost a year later we were informed that Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) had been cast along with a few other names, but the series was still not a sure thing, and it wouldn’t be until the pilot was seen that a decision would be made. Fast forward to present day and we still do not know if Game of Thrones will become a full series, but buzz has been steadily growing and a solid fanbase has already been developing.

Empire Celebrity Photo Shoot #1

Empire Magazine celebrated their 20th anniversary a while back, and they made sure to do it proper. Many big news stories and goodies came from the event, but one of the big plans they hatched, was to attempt to book a bunch of the world’s biggest Hollywood stars for a photo shoot where they would re-create some of their own classic film scenes.

The result: big stars showed up. Lot’s of them. And though they didn’t get completely dressed in costume (the plan was to simply shoot them in nice attire with obvious props used to clarify the film), many fantastic images now exist. The list of names is impressive and includes Clint Eastwood, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise, Christian Bale, Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Mel Gibson, Laurence Fishburne, Ben Stiller, Viggo Mortensen, Kevin Spacey, Matt Damon, Anthony Hopkins, and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, naturally! Movies that were re-created include Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Braveheart, The Matrix, Sev7en, Silence of the Lambs, Jurassic Park, and Shaun of the Dead.

Click over to the other side to check out some of the images we were quite smitten with; head over to Empire in order to see many more, including a lot more stars and movies not mentioned here!
