The Games of Thrones Season 5 Trailer is here…

You know nothing, Jon Snow

Finally! The trailer for Game of Thrones Season 5 is upon us. It seems like ages since the last series drew to a close and I’ve had to spend the intervening months watching Nashville (yes, I’m okay with admitting I’m a fan, but that’s a discussion for another day) and The Last Ship (‘Merica’s here to save the whole wide world you guys!). Also, and perhaps the saddest part of all this is that it has been a while since I last laid eyes upon the uber-fine Emelia Clarke, aka Daenerys Targaryen aka Mother of Dragons. You know the one, right? Her:

Shew.

But enough waffling and pining for Ms Clarke. On with the trailer with which I click-baited you: Check it:

Looks like a goodie.

And in keeping with the theme of this post, here’s a wee something I found on Twitter a while ago that truly never gets old. While it’s from way back and thus referring to Season 4, the fact of the matter is that the season number is interchangeable for this series. Season 1? Check.
Season 3? Check.
Season 5? Probably. Naah, definitely. Check.

Season 5 episode 1 kicks off on 12 April in the US, and I think we can all safely assume that we here in South Africa should see it mere hours later as one of DSTV’s Express from the US offerings.

April in South Africa… Winter is coming.

See what I did there?

Never mind.

Entourage movie to (hopefully) start shooting in the spring…

Entourage
The guys from Entrourage

I haven’t been updating this site much lately, so kinda missed this: the news that Mark Wahlberg, executive producer of my favourite show of all time, Entourage, has told newsy folks that the script for the Entourage movie is finally ready. Well, to be precise, the articles claim that Mark was to receive a copy of the finished script from show creator Doug Ellin, not that it’s approved and good to start shooting or anything official like that. Details, details. Better late than never and all that, right? And here I’m referring to me telling you lot about this, and not him getting the script, although that’s valid too.

I for one have been waiting for what seems like ages, since the last episode wrapped up last year, to see what Ari Gold and the Entourage crew get up to next. The world is a somewhat sadder place at the moment without the latest wisecracks from everyone’s favourite agent, brilliantly played by Jeremy Piven, along with really entertaining performances from the gang – Vince, Turtle, Johnny Drama and Eric. Plus, Emmanuelle Chriqui isn’t exactly an eyesore, now is she?

This according to deadline.com:

(Doug) Ellin says that Wahlberg keeps promising “to kill me if I don’t write faster. Every time I see him, Mark says, ‘I’ve made 5 movies this year. Get going!”

He says his script starts about 6 months after the TV series leaves off. “There are interesting developments about Ari as a studio head, and that’s still the first page for me. But foremost is the friendship between the guys who are still hanging out and going to fun parties, and it continues with the same characters.”

Can’t wait! It’s going to be epic. As soon as any trailers or publicity come along I’ll be sure to post them here.

Modern Family recut as a horror movie…

Modern Family

What if Modern Family wasn’t the light-hearted comedy that we know and love? What if it was actually… a horror movie? dun dun dun

Trevorama took it upon himself to recut the Emmy Award-winning hit show as a 5 minute extended trailer in the form of a horror flick, with the obvious psycho being the gifted Alex Dunphy. It’s always the gifted kids, isn’t it? And yet… I turned out fine ;).

Take a look:

Impressive what a bit of an edit and some mood music can do, right?

Barney Stinson – thumbs up…

No real long drawn out point to this post – just Barney Stinson being awesome. Figured it’d cheer those of you still working this late in December up a bit.

Game of Thrones: Season 2 “Cold Winds” Teaser…

HBO recently posted a teaser clip of the upcoming season 2 of Game of Thrones: Cold Winds.

Take a look:

Do ya wanna know what I’m looking forward to the most about the new season? Nothing – I haven’t seen season 1 yet, although I hear it’s really rather good. Better mosey on over to Amazon to rustle up a copy and check it out. I hear it’s full of swords, duelling, and most importantly, boobs. Win, win and win (obviously) in my book.

Any thoughts? Good? Shite? Meh?

Top Gear – someone complained! Seriously?

Those three friendly-and-really-very-politically-correct lads from Top Gear actually managed to offend someone! Who’d have guessed it?

According to BBC News the Mexican ambassador to London who ever so slightly irked. The report states that: “Mexico’s ambassador in London has complained to the BBC over “offensive, xenophobic and humiliating” comments made about his country on Top Gear.”

What was all the fuss about? The usual. Apparently Richard “Hamster” Hammond, whilst describing a Mexican car, stated that as vehicles reflected national characteristics so “Mexican cars are just going to be lazy”.

In case that wasn’t enough, he further clarified that “Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat.”

Jeremy Clarkson of course wasn’t going to be left out of the fun. He reassured Hammond that he was confident he “would not receive any complaints about their comments because the Mexican ambassador would be asleep.”

Apparently he was wrong. The dude was very much awake. And very much cranky. Aye Carumba!

These okes are classic!
