'Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing' Brings Winter Just a Little Bit Closer

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | January 26, 2014 | Comments ()


Five things you really shouldn’t have missed this week.

5. A Beefed Up 24: Live Another Day Cast Began Filming in London.



I have to admit to a fondness for Jack Bauer, so I’m definitely curious about the revamped 24. The return engagement has Jack on the run again after having killed a couple of Russians and a CTU mole. Also returning is ever-faithful Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), Jack’s former lover, Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), and William Devane as President James Heller. Joining the limited series are Benjamin Bratt, Judy Davis, Tate Donovan, Dexter’s Yvonne Strahovski, and it was just announced the fabulous Stephen Fry will play British Prime Minister, Trevor Davies. Dammit Jack, that’s pretty tempting.

5. NBC Continued to Stoke the Hannibal Fires.

This latest promo only solidifies what we already knew—no one can get Dr. Lecter out of his head. But I think we can all agree the slogan should be “Embrace the Madsness?

3. Ben Mendelsohn and Rupert Friend Watched Tension Mount in the Starred Up Trailer.

Skins’ Jack O’Connell, (who’s currently filming Unbroken; he’ll play Louis Zamperini), stars as “explosively violent” Eric, a teenager transferred to adult prison, where he runs into his father (Mendelsohn). Homeland’s underused Rupert Friend shows up in his native accent as the prison counselor trying to head off disaster. David Mackenzie’s (Young Adam, Hallam Foe, Perfect Sense) acclaimed drama premiered at the London and Toronto International Film Festivals, is already on some best of 2014 lists, and drawing comparisons to A Prophet; it opens in UK theaters 21 March.

2. The Please-Let-It-Be-True Rumor of the Week Has Tarantino Immersed in the Robert Blake Case.


After an early script leak, Quentin Tarantino scrapped plans for filming The Hateful Eight, and already the rumor mill is in overdrive. Word is the director is writing some sort of prison film, and that he’s been studying the details of actor Robert Blake’s (Lost Highway, Baretta, In Cold Blood) murder case. If you’re not familiar, in 2001 Blake was arrested for murdering his wife, Bonnie Lee Bakley outside a California restaurant; later, bizarre details emerged about Bakley, her pregnancy (she told both Blake and Christian Brando they were her baby’s father), and allegations that Blake attempted to solicit a contract killer before Bakley’s death. It is, in true Hollywood fashion, a fascinating tale that begs a film adaptation. If the rumors are true, I can’t even imagine Tarantino’s slant, but I’d damned sure pony up to see it.

1. HBO Announced a Fifteen Minute Game of Thrones Season 4 Preview Next Month.


Though snowstorms may have already hit you several times over, the winter we’re all waiting for is still on the slow approach. Luckily for us, HBO has decided to whet our appetites with a 15-minute Season 4 preview on February 9th, 8:45 pm EST—right before the most excellent True Detective. The special, Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing, will feature Season 4 clips, behind the scenes footage, and cast interviews. Until then, you can salivate over this new featurette:

Game of Thrones returns Sunday, April 6th.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) is terribly excited for both midwinter (Hannibal), and big winter (Game of Thrones) to arrive.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    I love behind the scenes videos like that, and Charles Dance seems delightful.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    Ben Mendelsohn always knocks it out of the park when it comes to portraying low-life australian scum, he was absolutely mesmerizing in Animal Kingdom. But then again so was everyone in that film, which speaks volumes.

    Also, are we sure Jack O'Connell isn't just a really successful experiment in attempting to bond Anton Yelchin and Tom Hardy into a single specimen?

    Ben Mendelsohn just always knocks it out of the park.
