Sean Bean Survives Reddit AMA, Talks Walking Into Mordor & Jon Snow’s Paternity

Game Of Thrones Ned Stark Sean Bean

Sean Bean recently did a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) where he fielded questions from Redditors about Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings, and National Treasure (which yielded a creepy Nicolas Cage anecdote), as well as how most of his characters end up getting killed off. The fan-favorite actor was promoting his upcoming TNT drama, Legends, which launched a #DontKillSeanBean marketing campaign during last month’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Some of the quick questions in the AMA were:

– A role he wished he had for longer? [Ned Stark!]
– Favorite comfort food [chocolate]
– Who would he take into battle, Robert Baratheon or Aragorn? [Robert Baratheon]

There’s lots of cool tidbits like this throughout, but let’s see what Bean — who says he’s actually been mistaken for Mr. Bean — has to say about all that walking into Mordor business in the Lord Of The Rings and why on Game Of Thrones does his bastard son Jon Snow know “nothing.”

The Wachowskis’ ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Delayed From This Summer Until Next February

Jupiter Ascending Trailer

Andy and Lana Wachowski‘s latest big-budget sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending initially looked to be one of this summer movie season’s oddest entries, but no more. For reasons that have yet to be made clear Warner Bros., which co-financed the $150 million tentpole blockbuster wannabe with Village Roadshow, has moved the film out of its original July 18, 2014 release date and rescheduled it for next February.

I can’t say that I’m surprised by this move. With no major stars and a storyline not based on any existing fictional properties Jupiter faced potential stiff competition on opening weekend from the likes of Planes: Fire and Rescue, The Purge: Anarchy, and Sex Tape, not to mention only getting two weeks to make its mark on audiences before Guardians of the Galaxy debuted.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring: Extended Edition
Blu-ray
Directed by Peter Jackson
Written by Peter Jackson, Phillipa Boyens, and Fran Walsh; based on the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien
Starring Elijah Wood, Viggo Mortensen, Ian McKellen, and Sean Astin
New Line Home Video
Release Date: August 28, 2012

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring accomplished a feat that few films have ever been able to do: it made a believer out of me. When the movie was first released in December 2001 it proved that epic fantasy features that were not set in a galaxy far, far away could still break box office records. I didn’t see the movie during its blockbuster theatrical run because….I really thought it was going to be terrible. There, I confess. It took me until Fellowship‘s first DVD release in August 2002 to realize that my harsh pre-judging of the movie, mostly based on the simmering anger I felt towards the past few years of bloated Hollywood FX spectacles that offered fantastic visuals but little in the way of memorable stories and characters, was in haste and a huge mistake.

I remember the sweltering summer evening when I rented a copy of Fellowship from my local now-defunct Hollywood Video on the way home from work. Knowing in advance that it was a three-hour flick my initial plan was to watch the first half at the least before hitting the sack so I could get up the next morning for an early shift at the Tower Records I had been working at back then for more than three years. Twenty minutes following the start of my first viewing of Fellowship of the Ring and I was hooked; there would be no “To Be Continued” that night. Even though I risked getting barely enough sleep to pass for a member of the living the next day I watched the movie until its very end, and by the time Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee walked off into the sunset to more adventures I was a full-fledged Rings fan.

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Trailer: Channing Tatum Protects Mila Kunis From Intergalactic Assassins

jupiter ascending mila kunis

Warner Bros has released the first trailer for the Jupiter Ascending starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, and Eddie Redmayne. The film can be seen as a Cinderella in space kind of story, with Kunis playing the princess who’s working dead-end jobs on planet Earth being saved by Caine (Tatum), who tells her that her genetic markings puts her next in line for the galactic throne. Hit the jump to see the full trailer.

I’m not going to lie to you: For something that goes from planet Earth to Jupiter, the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending‘s scope seems surprisingly small. But the detail that went into the visuals, now that is something that will definitely take your breath away. Something that really shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the directing team brought us films like The Matrix Trilogy, Speed Racer, and Cloud Atlas.

Game of Thrones

One of the most iconic images to come from the production of HBO’s Game of Thrones, has been a promotional image of Lord Eddard Stark (Sean Bean) sitting in the Iron Throne (seen above).

Phileas Flash is an entertainer who does balloon sculptures, but these are not the balloon animal poodles from your childhood. These are astonishingly complex balloon creations. One of his projects was to recreate the image above entirely with balloons, and, as you can see in the image below, he very much succeeded!

Watch Now: ‘Silent Hill: Revelation’ Trailer

Silent Hill Revelation

Silent Hill: Revelation is just one of those films that went quietly into production. It’s been six years since the release of the first Silent Hill movie, and now we are getting a first look at its sequel. Check out the trailer below.

Plagued by nightmares of events that occurred six years ago, Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) must go back to Silent Hill to save her father and discover who she truly is. It may sound a bit existential, but when combined with some horror elements, it might be some fun to watch.

Characters from the first film like Christopher De Silva (Sean Bean), Dahlia Gillespie (Deborah Kara Unger), and Pyramid Head are all coming back, while actor Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow on TV’s Game Of Thrones, has been added to the cast this time around. Like most video game adaptations, there will be nods to the video game franchise that only fans will be able to recognize. The film is primarily based on the Silent Hill 3 video game.

The Most Shocking Moments Of ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 1

Not Sure   |

The vacant throne

This article only addresses events that happened during the first season of the HBO TV series Game Of Thrones, not how they were originally portrayed in the George R. R. Martin’s series of novels, A Song of Ice and Fire.

Game of Thrones has delivered unto us a show that is as rich as it is complex, a fantasy show flush with blood, lust, and treachery. To say that the bar hasn’t risen to unfairly high levels for the second season is an understatement, and saying that the show’s propensity for the truly shocking has added to those great expectations is certainly another.

In advance of Sunday night’s premiere of Season 2, we thought it best to highlight some of those shocking moments from Season 1; those scenes that made your jaw drop and your pulse quicken.

Warning: There are tons of spoilers beyond this point.
