HBO’s Game of Thrones has now come and gone, and while most of the series was universally praised, the final season was a bit polarizing.

Now author George R.R. Martin, who wrote the “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series the show was based on, has shared his thoughts on the show ending. He also touched on whether or not the long-awaited next book in the series, The Winds of Winter, and the book after that, A Dream of Spring, would ultimately lead to the same ending as HBO’s adaptation. You can see what he had to say below.

Movie Review: Aladdin

Aladdin

Aladdin
Director: Guy Ritchie
Writer: Guy Ritchie, John August
Cast: Will Smith, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Alan Tudyk, Billy Magnussen
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | Runtime: 128 Minutes
Release Date: May 24, 2019

There is absolutely no room for error when it comes to adapting a Disney animated classic into a live-action film. The studio has recently found some modest critical and commercial success with some of their titles. But the one common thread that each of them shares is that all of them are a part of a legacy and each has a large existing fanbase. So the bar of expectation for a live-action take on Aladdin is pretty high. Especially when it comes to capturing the same spirit of the story, themes, and music. But most of all, the characters, like Aladdin, Jasmine, and the unforgettable Genie.

Luckily, Guy Ritchie‘s take on the film is something that stays true to the spirit of the animated original while still maintaining his style of filmmaking. A huge surprise at best, the film captures everything that we love about the animated original through its cast, especially with Will Smith‘s Genie and Naomi Scott‘s scene-stealing performance as Princess Jasmine. With some slight updates to the story and songs, along with a brand new song from Alan Menken, this version of Aladdin is an upbeat and fun contemporary take on the 1992 original.

Booksmart

A couple of months back we saw a restricted trailer for Booksmart, which marks Alpha Dog and TRON: Legacy star Olivia Wilde‘s feature directorial debut. The movie stars Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein as a pair of straight-A students who decide it’s time to go to a party and live it up a bit before they have to head off to college.

Now a pair of final trailers have been released by Annapurna. One is another restricted trailer, which is not so safe for workplace viewing, while the other is a short safer for work trailer. You can find both of these final Booksmart trailers below along with some bonus previously released videos, including a green band trailer, featurettes, and the uncut first six minutes of the movie, and a pair of posters.

Falcon And The Winter Soldier

Most of the Avengers roster has been lost because of death or retirement, but some of the heroes will live on and continue to avenge through a variety of shows that will appear exclusively on Disney’s upcoming Disney+ streaming service. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will bring back Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan to reprise their respective titular roles. Though it’s not clear what will happen to the pair post-Avengers: Endgame, it looks like the two will run into some familiar faces.

According to new reports, Emily VanCamp and Daniel Brühl are both in talks to reprise their respective roles on the upcoming show. Additionally, Kari Skogland (The Walking Dead) has been hired to direct the series. More on this below.

Final ‘Toy Story 4’ Trailer: Woody and The Gang Discover What They Really Are

TOY STORY 4

The entire premise of Toy Story 4 asks the question, what makes a toy a toy? It’s a deep and existential question that has never been explored in any of the previous Toy Story films. This comes about when Bonnie brings home Forky (Tony Hale), a googly-eyed spork with pipe-cleaners for arms and a broken popsicle stick for legs. It just sets the stage for a much bigger adventure when Bonnie takes all of her toys on a family road trip, and Woody (Tom Hanks), being the honorable sheriff that he is, promises to bring back Forky when he runs away.

Pixar has now released the final trailer for Toy Story 4, and you can check it out below.

Dungeons & Dragons: Ghosts Of Saltmarsh
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards Of The Coast
Release Date: May 21, 2019

It was just yesterday that I was making pirate jokes and telling my wife she needed to get an eyepatch (full disclosure, she had allergy issues). But today I am all about the seafaring adventures detailed within Ghosts of Saltmarsh, sans pirate jokes. In fact, this compilation holds the keys to almost endless possibilities.

When we talk about Dungeons & Dragons we seldom think of anything on the high seas, but the modules have long been available for play. Dungeon Masters the world over have delighted in sending player characters to their doom, er, I mean on adventures.
