One important nude scene from A Dance With Dragons appearing in Season 5 of Game of Thrones has now been resolved, according to HBO.

If there's one thing HBO's Game of Thrones TV show is not afraid of, it's showing nudity on-screen. From the series' debut, and up to the most recent episode, there's usually a scene or two where someone's naked. However, there is one particular nude scene which has caused a little bit of grief for HBO. In A Dance With Dragons, an important public nude scene takes place that involves a major character and is set to appear in Game of Thrones' fifth season. Unfortunately, though, the local church in Dubrovnik, Croatia, has policies against "public displays of sexuality," which prevented the scene from being filmed. HBO's solution? Shoot in a new location. This was revealed by show producers during the HBO Emmy party earlier this week. According to the unnamed producers, this snag is "old news" and that a new location for the scene has already been secured.

For spoiler reasons, I'm not going to disclose who this major character is and why he/she strips down in public. If you don't read the books, or have yet to read about this particular scene, I'd advise against searching for it on the internet since it is a primary plot point and best to be experienced fresh.

lol as if nobody knows who it is by now, but I appreciate this spoiler-free article. Glad they resolved it.

'Thor 3' Spoilers: The Ragnarok And More; Third Movie To Include Loki's Wife Sigyn? Exclusive! Tom Hiddleston And Chris Hemsworth Hints Ragnarok Plot For Thor 3!

Just recently, Screen Crush has confirmed that Marvel is indeed pushing through with "Thor 3," and has in fact, already hired screenwriters. One of which, is Marvel's former Senior Vice President for Production and Devopment Craig Kyle.

Kyle will be working on the "Thor 3" screenplay with Christopher Yost who has already written for "Thor: The Dark World."

Now that fans are sure to get their "Thor" fix, they can expect to see Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth), Jane Foster (played by Natalie Portman) and Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) reprise their roles in the upcoming blockbuster.

The third "Thor" movie is said to show Asgard's demise.

According to "Thor 3" spoilers on Movie Pilot, Asgard could come to an end because of Chris Hemsworth's Thor as a part of the "apocalyptic comic book story of Ragnarok."
Movieweb mentions an interview Chris Hemsworth gave wherein he mentions an apocalypse happening, which fans connect to the Ragnarok.

"With the Avengers, we made it difficult to separate them each time there's some sort of conflict. It's like, where's the rest of the team? I liked that Thor has another universe to take care of and keep him occupied. I think that in the comic book, the sort of end of days, Armageddon aspect is probably the direction in which it will all head in. Where it's sort of the end of all things. There's obviously no script or anything. When I read the comic books, I thought it was an interesting way to go," says Hemsworth

In a different interview, Tom Hiddleston might have slipped a few times mentioning the Ragnarok and "Thor 3," saying:
"I think there are very interesting things that happen. In the mythology, when you get into Ragnarok, which is the "end of all things", it's not the end of the world...It's the end of time, and the universe, and space. And I think, if I am correct...Loki essentially, sets that in motion. And his motivation for doing so is intriguing and he almost becomes the incarnation of chaos, in a way...So I think that can be quite new."

He also mentions Loki's wife Sigyn:
" In the myth, he has a wife called Sigyn who protects him from a poison serpent who is dripping venom into his mouth. And she has a bowl over his mouth and of course the bowl keeps filling up and she has to empty it, and so his damnation could be interesting. I don't know...I mean, Loki is a character who's existed in popular consciousness for 3,000 years, so there are many, many iterations I could explore...It's just a question of whether audiences would want to see him again."

Stay tuned for more "Thor 3" spoilers!

‘Thor 3′ Rumors: 2017 Release, Enchantress, Ragnarok, Chris Hemsworth And More Tom Hiddleston

Marvel fans know a third Thor film is coming, but there has been no official word on a release or major changes to the franchise. Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander and Tom Hiddleston are all expected to be back, but it may be a while actor to the Australia lead actor.

“Yeah I got a lot of time. I don’t think it’s just yet, Thor 3. I think it’s a ways away,” Hemsworth said at SDCC when asked about returning for Thor 3.

Marvel announced their schedule (see it below) which extends to 2019 and fans were quick to earmark 2017 as the return of the Norse God.

Screenrant said that Marvel’s decision to hold off a third Thor film was probably because of the Hemsworth’s schedule. The site wrote, “Let’s not forget that Hemsworth is a busy guy, with plenty of films on his slate already. Apart from picking up the hammer again for next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, he’s starring in Michael Mann’s Blackhat and Ron Howard’s Heart of the Sea, he’s rumored for Shane Black’s Doc Savage, and he’s taking over the Snow White and the Huntsman franchise with his own Huntsman-centric spin-off in 2016.”

Marvel has confirmed that the screenwriters have already been hired, and one of them is Marvel’s former senior vice president for production and development, Craig Kyle. Kyle will be penning the script together with Christopher Yost, whose previous work includes Thor: The Dark World.

Kevin Feige, President of Production for Marvel Studios, also has this to say about hiring Craig Kyle, “I am proud of Craig have enjoyed working with him over the past three years. His creative instincts have helped shaped Thor and Thor: The Dark World at every level of the filmmaking process”.

Movie Pilot website writes the Ragnarok will be part of the film as Thor could again be seen fighting his brother and will also be seen saving his own world. In another rumor it is learned the upcoming movie will feature a new main character. It will be based on its comic version and to be named as Amora the Enchantress. (other articles say she'll be a love interest for Loki)

'Thor 3' Release Date Yet To Be Announced: Loki Could Go in Search of His Origins

No release date has been announced yet for "Thor 3." However, there is lot of speculation in regards to the plot and cast of the film. There is a buzz that Loki could go ahead to know about his roots and origins. His character was left in an ambiguous state in the last "Thor" offering. Speculations are rife that in the third movie, he would get bored of the throne and go in search of his origins, according to Enstarz report.

It is also being suggested that Balder the brave can also join the cast of third instalment of "Thor." In the comic book, Balder was Thor's half brother and his friend, according to the website. If Loki goes out to find who he is then he can end up meeting Balder. Balder is reportedly Odin's legitimate son and not Loki.

Meanwhile, it seems that fans have to wait for a while before the third part of the franchise would go in production.

"Well we'll see. It won't be until probably sometime next year before we announce the 2016 movies and the 2017 movies, and a lot of that will depend on the reception to the next batch of movies. What we're actively working on is Thor's next appearance in 'Age of Ultron.' Where he goes beyond that we have a lot of ideas. You're right that where we leave the characters in this movie sort of hints what could happen in the future, but we'll see where that goes after Avengers 2," said Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Fiege when asked about the possibilities of Thor 3 to Screen Rant.

Thor would be next seen as the part of ensemble cast in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." It is being said that a lot of dynamics are going to change in regards to his character sketch in "Thor 3" based upon how the character progresses in "Avengers."

The complete cast of "Thor 3" is yet to be annouced. The film is reported to be written by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. Meanwhile, "Avengers-2" is set to be released next year.

'Thor 3' Movie Release Date, Plot Rumors: Loki to Bring About Asgard's Destruction?

It has been reported that Marvel has greenlighted a third installment of the "Thor" movies. Though no release date has been announced, it has been confirmed that the screenwriters have already been hired, and one of them is Marvel's former senior vice president for production and development, Craig Kyle. Kyle will be penning the script together with Christopher Yost, whose previous work includes "Thor: The Dark World."

In an exclusive interview with Collider.com in July, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige shared a few details about the current status of "Thor 3" and another Marvel project, "Captain America 3."

"Both in development, both in the works. Cap [Captain America] has already been announced, so that's up first. That's in a further stage. 'Thor' is being outlined right now, so both in the works," said Feige.

According to Movie Pilot, the plot of "Thor 3" could revolve around Asgard coming to an end because of Thor being a part of the "apocalyptic comic book story of Ragnarok."

Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, has mentioned the Ragnarok plot is a recent interview as well.

"I think there are very interesting things that happen. In the mythology, when you get to Ragnarok, which is 'the end of all things', it's not the end of the world … it's the end of time, and the universe, and space. And I think, if I am correct, Loki essentially sets that in motion. And his motivation for doing so is intriguing and he almost becomes the incarnation of chaos, in a way," the actor said.

Fans can expect Chris Hemsworth to be back to reprise his role as Thor. Hiddleston and Natalie Portman are reported to be back for the latest installment in the "Thor" movie franchise.

'Thor 3' Rumors: Sigyn Could Appear In The Movie To Help Loki, Be Crucial In Ragnarok Plot

It seems like Thor may not be the only one with a girl on his arm in the next installment of the franchise.

It was reported back in November by MovieWeb during an interview with Thor star Tom Hiddleston that Loki's wife, Sigyn, could possibly appear in the next movie in order to help Loki, who is now on the throne of Asgard posing as Odin. But what could this mean for Ragnarok?

In the comics, Odin's imprisonment of Loki enraged Sigyn, who secretly followed him as he traveled to Earth, and transported the real body of Donald Blake deep in the caverns of Mount Wundagore. In an attempt to steal Blake and use his as leverage to have Loki released. However, she accidentally destroyed Blake in the process of trying to free him from the spell created by Odin. She quickly covered her tracks by creating a doppelgänger of the mortal.

What We Know So Far About 'Thor 3'

While this doesn't directly deal with Ragnarok, the idea of her coming to Earth and using someone like that could be a storyline within Thor 3. Thor is currently on Earth and it is unsure if he will return to Asgard during the next Avengers movie or afterwards so he could still be on Earth when the third movie starts.

Sigyn could be used as someone keeping an eye on Thor while he is on Earth and the doppelgänger could be used as Sigyn's watching eyes on the God of Thunder, which in turn helps Loki as well.

It will be interesting to see if she does make an appearance and if her contribution will help in Loki's destruction of Asgard.

'Thor 3' Spoilers: The Mad Titan Could Get Infinity Gauntlet & More In Third Movie As Loki Looks To Re-Gain Favor

While much of the speculation around Thanos seems to be with Guardians of the Galaxy, some may forget that Thor also has a galactic setting and the Mad Titan could show up in that world, especially since Odin has the item he wants most.

Comic Book Movie speculated about where Marvel would be heading with the Infinity Gauntlet storyline and whether it will start to take shape anytime soon with many of the Infinity gems already teased in previous movies.

In The Avengers, Loki is employed by Thanos to come and take over Earth using the Tesseract power, but ends up failing. The Tesseract and Loki were sent to Asgard where the events of Thor: The Dark World took place and Loki was assumed to be dead. But the site speculates that maybe that was part of the plan.

"Thanos employs Loki to get the Tesseract from Earth in exchange for Loki ruling Earth. WRONG! Thanos used Earth and Loki as a scapegoat for his real target. Asgard. Loki and the Tesseract are now on Asgard. As far as the universe is concerned, Loki's dead. But we know he's impersonating none other than Odin the All-Father," the site said.

"Thanos would've come to kill Loki if he'd failed, so evidently, Loki didn't fail. Thanos also probably wanted Earth to be taken over as well, but each step of this plan is a win/win for Thanos, really. If Loki had taken Earth, Thanos has a whole planet of slave labourers. Loki didn't conquer Earth, ends up impersonating Odin instead. So, Loki never really failed Thanos at all. He just completed Phase One."

It seems like Thanos now, without our knowledge, has access to both the Tesseract and Infinity Gauntlet. The other stones, the Aether from The Dark World and orb from Guardians of the Galaxy, are still not in his control, but could be in due time.

So could Thanos become a part of Thor 3? It is possible. With the Ragnarok plot line teased, the Mad Titan could use the destruction of Asgard to really push his plan into full gear for The Avengers 3.

alright... so... the plot of this movie is either going to be loki destroys asgard or loki peaces out from asgard, loki gets laid by his wife who hasn't been mentioned for three films or loki gets laid by the enchantress who is really thirsty for thor, and ragnarok might happen involving loki's monster kids who have also not been mentioned for three films or ragnarok might not happen at all, thanos may or may not turn up to snatch the infinity gauntlet and fuck loki's shit up...

...and thor may or may not be involved at some point in some way. got it.

The family of "Big Brother 16" houseguest Victoria Rafaeli is fuming mad over a joke Frankie Grande made about 2 guys teaming up to take Victoria's virginity ... and they want an apology from him AND his sister Ariana.

During the livestream on Saturday, Grande told two male houseguests they should "double team" Victoria and "take all her virginities." He then made a bunch of extremely sexual gestures. Just watch the video.

Victoria's mother, Lizabeth, tells TMZ she definitely took Frankie's comments to be a "rape joke" and feels her daughter is now a "target for rape" because producers did nothing to stop Frankie's rant.

Lizabeth wants an apology from Frankie's parents and Ariana Grande... and she wants Frankie to apologize to her daughter.

She tells TMZ, “I want Frankie to imagine people saying this stuff about his sister and see if he thinks it's funny.”

i'm curious to see how ariana handles this and her relationship w/frankie if this gets more attention.

Users of the matchmaking app Tinder have a greater chance of finding puppy love now that shelter dogs have made their way to the dating app.

Ten dogs from Social Tees Animal Rescue, a no-kill shelter in New York, now have Tinder dating profiles.

Interns at the Bartle Bogle Hegarty advertising agency came up with the idea as a way to increase pet adoptions.

“People strictly go to Tinder to find love, go there to find relationships and companionship,” intern Alexis Mood told Ad Week. “These dogs have something to give.”

When the dogs’ profiles were posted on the matchmaking app, they received 2,700 matches in less than a week, according to Mood.

On Tinder, users swipe right on photos of other users they like. If both users swipe right, a match is made and they can text each other within the app.

When a user swipes on a pooch’s profile, they get a message from the animal shelter with information about adopting the dog. Those not interested in long-term canine companionship can opt to walk shelter dogs or even foster them.

The team behind the doggy dating profiles didn’t collaborate with Tinder on the project, but Tinder hasn’t removed the profiles.

Pet matchmaking isn’t new to smartphones. BarkBuddy is an app similar to Tinder except it matches people with adoptable dogs in their area.


Barkbuddy App

Even though I am a cat stan I still love me some dogs so I think this is a fantastic idea I hope it is successful. <3

Hopefully they make one for cats as well soon. :)

Privacy, please! As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, jet-setting newlyweds Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their six children have plunked down on the Mediterranean island country Malta, but according to the New York Post, they’re not planning to share their new home base with the locals.

The actors- who are filming their new movie, By the Sea, on the island of Gozo- are so obsessed with keeping their production away from prying eyes, they’re allegedly paying local business owners as much as $200,000 to skip town.

“A lot of people have agreed to leave the island so that they can have privacy to film the movie,” a source told the New York Post’s Page Six. “The set is being built there to recreate the French Riviera.” As Radar revealed, Brangelina and their brood will be based in Gozo filming the drama until at least November 10.

The parents to Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and 6-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne secretly wed last Saturday at their French estate, the Chateau Miraval.

Synopsis: In a sun dappled Sherwood forest, the Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars, and strikes up an unlikely alliance with Robin Hood. With all of Nottingham at stake, the Doctor must decide who is real and who is fake. Can impossible heroes actually exist?

Written by Mark Gatiss. Directed by Paul Murphy. Guest starring Tom Riley & Ben Miller.

This episode was so much better than last week's episode imo. I didn't think I'd enjoy it that much because I'm tired of them constantly using the Daleks on episodes, but they used them in a new way, so it was a fun one. I really liked Danny too. Now I'm a bit excited for the rest of the season tbh.

A new discovery suggests Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin may have unwittingly helped create everyone's favourite Wookie (sorry, Tarfful).

The likes of Reddit and Slashfilm have compiled some pretty compelling evidence for the idea that an illustration done for one of Martin's short stories way back in 1975 was used by Ralph McQuarrie as the basis for Chewbacca's concept art.

Let's start at the beginning. Back in 1975, McQuarrie was working on the concept art for Star Wars. There were a host of variations here from the finished product, including the fact Luke Skywalker was a woman, but it's a bit of a struggle to see any link between this Chewbacca and the one we know today.

McQuarrie confirmed later that while George Lucas liked this design, he reckoned it could be pushed further. As a result, the decision was made to take off the flak jacket and generally explore other options.

Now, this is where the connection comes in. Before his death, McQuarrie explained how Lucas helped with the development of Chewbacca. In essence, the director gave his friend a bundle of artwork along with more descriptions.
"George said he wanted Chewbacca to look like a lemur, so he had great big limpid eyes in some of my early sketches," McQuarrie explained. "George also gave me a drawing he liked from a 1930s illustrator of science fiction that showed a big, apelike, furry beast with a row of female breasts down its chest. So I took the breasts off and added a bandolier and ammunition and weapons, and changed its face so it looked somewhat more like the final character, and I left it at that."

Here's the thing though. That drawing from the 1930s? Yeah, it wasn't from the 1930s. It was actually from a year earlier in 1975, done by artist John Shoenherr to illustrate a short story by George R.R. Martin called "And Seven Times Never Kill Man!" which was published in Analog in July 1975. Here are the two images below, side-by-side.

And here are the final looks as they appear in the Star Wars films, and alongside Martin's 1975 story:

It's important to note out that this kind of thing isn't unusual and there's no suggestion Lucas knew the sketches were any more recent than he claimed. Concept art created by artists other professionals admire is often used as a source, and the finished products certainly look reasonably different. What's interesting too is the bowcaster-esque weapon used by the creature in Martin's story. Did the Star Wars prop department see the original sketch and decide to riff on it a little bit?

So there you have it. A story by George R.R. Martin certainly seems to have inadvertently provided the inspiration for Chewbacca. Don't feel too bad for McQuarrie slaving over his original designs, however. After many years they're finally set to be repurposed and used to create the character of Zeb Orrelios in the upcoming Star Wars Rebels. It's the circle of life... or is that another Disney movie?

The remake of Escape from New York has been in pre-production for quite some time, with several actors rumored to be attached to play Snake Plissken.

Now Starlog reported it has a short list of actors who may play the coveted role of Snake.

According to their source, Silver Pictures narrowed the candidates to three actors: Charlie Hunnam (“Sons of Anarchy”), Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead”) and Dan Stevens (“The Guest”).

Of course, Hunnam is the top contender for the role, but he may be busy with Pacific Rim 2.

The site also cautioned to take the news with a grain of salt until official news has been made. That source indicated the offer will be made in “any day now,” but none of the three actors have read for the role.

Starlog provided more details for the film that it will be “more team-based, as Snake Plissken traverses through a treacherous New York landscape with a rogues gallery of criminals who look to leave the island-turned-prison in exchange for the rescue of the captured U.S. President.”


Would you watch Cousin Matthew as Snake Plissken?

This New Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Trailer is Battle Hardened

It'll potentially give you a sense of seething injustice and jealousy, but Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS arrives in Japan on 13th September, a few weeks ahead of its Western release. That does mean all the more marketing as Nintendo builds hype for that arrival, which does no harm at all.

Nintendo's official YouTube account in Japan has just recently published a new trailer that includes over five minutes of 3DS footage. It's very careful to only show modes and details already revealed by Masahiro Sakurai, so some elements of the overall offering remain a mystery; nevertheless it's an attractive batch of footage as it covers basic rules, modes, customisation and more.

Nintendo's Italian Twitter Feed Shows off a Super Smash Bros. Double Pack for Nintendo 3DS

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is going to be very popular in local multiplayer; that's inevitable. Interestingly, confirmed by a packshot tweeted by Nintendo of Italy, Nintendo is attempting to cash in on that idea with a Smash Bros. double pack.

The package, which is yet to be confirmed outside of this tweet, looks likely to contain two copies of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS – one for you, and one for a friend / would-be adversary. If this is released in wider Europe then it's definitely something worth considering for a pair of hardcore Smash fans.

Providing the price is right, of course. A single copy of Smash Bros. for 3DS is priced at €39.99 in Europe, $39.99 in the U.S, and around £34.99 in the United Kingdom. So it'll be interesting to see how this double pack is priced – we reckon it'll have to be a reasonably noteworthy saving in order to make any major impact.
Witch time

Following a wait which felt like an eternity, it's finally been revealed when exactly gamers will be getting their hands on Bayonetta 2. Well, gamers in North America at least. You see, we've yet to see a European release date for Platinum's much-anticipated Wii U exclusive, but we finally know when the American launch will be taking place – and it's not very far away.

The 24th of October is when it'll all be kicking off for our friends across the pond, who'll also be able to bag themselves a free copy of the original Bayonetta with a purchase of Bayonetta 2. However, for those over in Europe that process is a little different.

To get both games in a single retail package in Europe, you'll have to shell out for a special 2-disc edition. Or, alternatively, you'll be able to grab the original game from the eShop as a separate purchase. Hopefully we'll be able to report on a European release date very soon

Kirby Mini-Games Now Available on North American eShop

You can now download two of the mini-games from Kirby: Triple Deluxe from the eShop without buying the full title if you happen to live in North America.

The two games in question are Dedede's Drum Dash Deluxe and Kirby Fighters Deluxe and promise to contain enhanced gameplay features rather than just being a straight port from the original cartridge. For example, Dedede's title has seven additional stages on top of the standard version's.

Should you already own Kirby: Triple Deluxe and have StreetPass data for it, you can get even more content from the additional downloadable versions of the mini-games.

Both games are available for $6.99 each on the North American eShop.
Register Smash Bros. on Both Wii U and 3DS and Get a Soundtrack Disc for Free

Club Nintendo members rejoice!

Nintendo has announced a special gift for fans who register both versions of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, and it's something definitely worth having:

"As another offering for fans, those who register both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the games in Club Nintendo – before a set time - can claim the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS & Wii U: Premium Sound Selection, a free soundtrack CD packed with tunes taken from and inspired by the games. Further details on the timings pertaining to this offering will follow at a later date."

This offer is available to members in Europe and North America, but unfortunately is not currently available elsewhere.
New Wii U and 2DS Bundles Announced, Rolling Out in North America this Fall

Shaping up for the holiday season

It may seem a little anticlimactic after today's big news, but for those happy to stick with trusty, old, familiar hardware, Nintendo have lined up a couple of decent bundles for this Fall.

If you're in North America, you can expect some new Wii U and 2DS bundles to arrive on your shores just in time for the Holiday season. The first is the Super Mario 3D World Deluxe Set, which brings together the following: a Wii U console, Super Mario 3D World and Nintendo Land. The bundled games are in physical, boxed form, and we reckon they're a great way to start your Wii U collection – Nintendo Land and Super Mario 3D World received scores of 9 and 10 respectively in our reviews. The bundle has a recommended retail price $299.99, which isn't a bad price at all.

The second Wii U bundle is very similar to the first, except this one is a Walmart exclusive, and it replaces Super Mario 3D World with Mario Kart 8. It also has a suggested retail price of $299.99, and launches in mid-September, just like the first bundle.

Now onto the 2DS bundle. Cheap and cheerful as ever, these bundles feature three differently coloured 2DS systems for you to choose from – Crimson Red, Electric Blue, or Sea Green – along with a download code for Mario Kart 7. This one will be priced at around $129.99.

All in all, these bundles seem like pretty decent value to us; even though they've only been officially announced in North America, we wouldn't be at all surprised if similar bundles appeared in Europe before Christmas rolls around.

Wii U games of the past, present and future
As we move into the holiday season, Nintendo is stepping up their marketing for the Wii U. The Mario Kart 8 bundle that debuted earlier this year did a lot to boost awareness around the Wii U, with many sites giving a “worth a buy” mention to the Wii U thanks to its excellent catalogue.

Either way, the Wii U is definitely a system with some great must have games currently on the way, with plenty to play while you wait.

Today Nintendo launched the english language version of its Hyrule Warriors website, which features several of the dozens of trailers that have been released over the past few months. The hype surrounding the release of Hyrule Warriors on September 26 is very real, so if you’re interested in seeing all the relevant information about the game, be sure and check it out.

The site also includes the Hyrule Warriors Direct that we saw at the beginning of this month, in addition to more details on the Ganondorf costume that’s available through Club Nintendo. The site also features player profiles for all thirteen playable characters, so be sure and check that out if you’re having trouble deciding who you should play once the game is released.
Reggie and Nintendo of America tackle the Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has swept the nation in a viral effort to raise more money for ALS.org, a charity dedicated to funding and researching the development of new treatments for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. This disease is commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease in the United States, as the famous Yankee retired after being diagnosed with the illness. Perhaps the most famous person alive today with the disease is theoretical physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking.

Regardless, earlier this week Xbox’s Phil Spencer challenged Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to the ice bucket challenge and Reggie accepted over Twitter. Today, we see the results of that challenge, where Reggie and the entire team at Nintendo of America have taken the challenge. It’s a great heart-warming video, and remember that Ubisoft’s CEO has challenged Shigeru Miyamoto to join in on the fun.

The Blue Shell makes Mario Kart a better game

One of the most loathed objects in the history of Mario Kart, if you haven’t been hit with the blue shell at least once in your karting career, then you’re probably the one throwing them. Either way, it’s an interesting design decision from Nintendo that has received a lot of hate, and a lot of love from certain gamers. The guys at Extra Credits decided to take a look at this specific mechanic, and why it’s so important to Mario Kart as a whole.

Nintendo considered making Mario the main character of Splatoon

Next month Edge Magazine is running a big feature on Shigeru Miyamoto, though several quotes from this interview have already leaked online. Yesterday we saw a quote from Miyamoto discussing the attitudes of casual gamers in the market, and how Miyamoto says he’s thankful for smartphones that attract the attention of these gamers, so Nintendo can focus on those who want to challenge themselves.

Despite that, it seems Mario is always the go-to character for Nintendo, as a section of that interview has revealed that in the initial concept for Splatoon didn’t feature the squid characters we saw unveiled at E3. Instead, the developers argued over whether there were any advantages to portraying Mario in this setting. As some fans have mentioned upon seeing the initial reveal, the backpacks on the characters are very similar to the one Mario wields in Super Mario Sunshine.

“There were heated debates over who the main player character should be. Whether it should be Mario, or a squid. When we talked about the possibility of it being Mario, of course we could think of the advantages: anybody would be willing to touch it as soon as we announced that we had the new Mario game. But at the same time, we had some worries. If it were Mario, we wouldn’t be able to create any new IP.”

It’s nice to see the team acknowledge that creating new IPs with characters outside of established franchises is something that Nintendo should still work on. Splatoon will be released sometime in 2015.

You'd think that - eleven years after Steve Brookstein became a (sort of) thing - we'd be over this whole telly talent show malarky. But nu-uh, honey; we're actually going bloody bonkers over the fact The X Factor's back TONIGHT. But before we plonk ourselves on the sofa to see Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Mel B sort out the next bunch of wannabes, we thought we'd look back over our fave first auditions ever.

Yup - we're talking FETUS fetus Liam Payne and One Direction before they were One Direction. We're talking Cher Lloyd slaying it. We're talking JLS in colour co-ordinated polo shirts and cargo pants.

Oh, and we're also talking about Ablisa. Obviously.

You ready to feel *all* the feels, relive your introduction to Jedward (oh sweet Jesus) and remind yourself why Little Mix are potentially the most perfect popstars on this thing we call our planet? LEGGO.

8. Ella Henderson

6. Little Mix before they were Little Mix

5. Olly Murs

4. One Direction before they were One Direction
OoOoOoOh, it's what you do to meee...

1. Cher Lloyd - Turn My Swag On
Right up our street. Cher Lloyd gave the best X Factor first audition of all time. This is fact. Hooray.

The others are Jedward, JLS, James Arthur, Liam Payne's 2008 audition, and Ablisa.


What's your favorite audition, ONTD? Don't say Louis's.

Carice van Houten and Gabriel Byrne are attached to star in “The Book of Vision,” a time-shifting fantasy/mystery centered around the history of the doctor/patient relationship that Italian helmer Carlo Hintermann will direct and Terrence Malick will executive produce.

Van Houten, who plays Melisandre in “Thrones,” will play Eva, an Italian doctor who decides to go study history of medicine at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Md. There she discovers the information about an 18th century doctor in the Southern German city of Halle, which was then in the Prussian empire. Byrne will play the Prussian doctor, and will also play Eva’s doctor in the present day. The screenplay is by Hintermann and Marco Saura. The film will be in English.

“The narrative structure of the film is somewhat similar to ‘Cloud Atlas’: some characters from the past also reverberate in the present, and are played by the same actors,” said Hintermann.

“Vision” will be the full-fledged feature film debut for Hintermann, who previously made several docus, including English-language “The Dark Side of the Sun,” about Camp Sundown, in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., that caters to children with xeroderma pigmentosum, a rare genetic disease that causes severe sun-sensitivity disorders. Hintermann also made docu “Rosy-Fingered Dawn: a Film on Terrence Malick,” which led to a collaboration with Malick, including a “Tree of Life” production credit for a brief “Tree” segment shot outside Rome. He is also the co-author of an upcoming book on Malick, to be published by Faber & Faber.

Budgeted at around $9 million, “Visions” is being co-produced by Citrullo Intl. — the shingle of the filmmakers’ collective that Hintermann belongs to — with Philipp Kreuzer’s Twiga Film for Germany and Malick exec producing. The plan is to start shooting in the spring of 2015 mostly in Germany with some externals done in the U.S. and an initial prologue in Italy.

Citrullo is in final talks with both an Italian and also an international distributor.

Hintermann said that Malick has been involved in the project from the outset and helped assemble a top-notch team comprising ace cinematographer Joerg Widmer, set designers Matthias Klemme and David Crank, and veteran casting director Dianne Crittenden.

“It’s a film about the richness of life and the surprise that sometimes springs from seeing fantastic things within the cracks of reality,” said Hintermann.

Hintermann and one of his Citrullo partners, Gerardo Panichi, are at Venice as co-producers of Amos Gitai’s “Tsili,” screening out of competition, and Amir Naderi’s upcoming Italy-set “Monte,” which is at the Venice European Gap Financing Co-Production market.

"You're Not You" tells the story of Kate (Hilary Swank), an accomplished woman in her 30s whose perfectly-ordered life is suddenly upended when she is diagnosed with the devastating and incurable disease ALS. Kate and her husband Evan (Josh Duhamel) must find a full time caregiver to help, and so they meet college student Bec (Emmy Rossum), who has impulsively answered their ad despite her complete lack of experience. Bec is chaos in motion--unable to commit to school, her relationships or her plans for the future. But Kate sees something special in Bec and hires her. Gradually, Kate inspires Bec not to throw her life away, while Bec helps Kate--literally and figuratively--to find her voice and finally live her life to the fullest – the way Kate truly wants. With equal measures of tears and laughter, "You're Not You" explores how these strangers – brought together by the most challenging circumstances – are able to unlock the best in each other. src

this looks so good tbh

Leave it to a ragtag band of space crusaders to save the Labor Day weekend box office. “Guardians of the Galaxy” has edged out newcomers “The November Man” and “As Above, So Below” to once again top the domestic box office, earning $3.8 million on Friday in its fifth frame. The intergalactic pic has beat out fellow Marvel superhero film “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” to become the highest grossing film of the year to date Stateside.

The Marvel-Disney blockbuster is headed for a $20.5 million weekend, which would mark a 9% spike and raise its impressive cume to $278.8 million.
“As Above, So Below” surprised with a second-place finish on Friday, but will likely end up in fourth place behind “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “If I Stay” by Monday — a repeat of last weekend.

This is the third win for “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which recently crossed the $500 million mark worldwide and passed “Transformers: Age of Extinction” as the highest-grossing movie of the summer in the U.S. The pic helped salvage the late summer box office, which is down an overall 15% from last season’s record-breaking performance.

Pierce Brosnan’s “November Man” came in a distant fifth on Friday with $2.2 million and is headed for sixth place by weekend’s end. Relativity’s actioner, which opened to a soft $862,000 million on Wednesday, stands to earn an estimated $9.8 million this holiday weekend, behind “As Above, So Below” and “Let’s Be Cops.”

Brosnan stars as an ex-CIA agent who returns from retirement for one final mission: to protect a witness, played by Olga Kurylenko. The espionage thriller targets — but failed to draw — the same older audience that flocked to Liam Neeson’s “Taken” films. Relativity paid $3 million for the $20 million production as part of its model for low-risk films.

This weekend’s other new wide release, “As Above, So Below,” grossed $3.2 million on Friday. The first film from Universal’s distribution pact with Legendary, “As Above, So Below” will likely earn around $11.3 million this long weekend. The thriller about archaeologists in search of a lost treasure in the Paris catacombs cost a mere $5 million to produce.

Meanwhile, Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is still kicking in its fourth frame. The anthropomorphic, crime-fighting reptiles made an estimated $2.7 million on Friday. It’s en route for $14.8 million (raising its total domestic haul to $165.5 million), which would mark a 19% drop.

YA tearjerker “If I Stay” was in fourth place on Friday with $2.6 million, but will reclaim last weekend’s third place finish by Labor Day. The Warner Bros. drama is headed for $11.8 million this weekend, which would barely edge out “As Above, So Below.” “Let’s Be Cops” rounded out the top five with $2 million. The Fox comedy will likely make north of $10 million by Monday.

The James Gunn directed 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is continuing to receive widespread praise from fans and critics whilst cleaning up at the box office. The Guardians have also found an unlikely fan in the eight time Oscar nominated actor, Al Pacino.

In an interview with Deadline Hollywood, Pacino was asked to share his feelings on Hollywood to which the actor responded: 'I don't have much to say about Hollywood because a movie is a movie, a film is a film. I don't know it, and I never know what Hollywood does. Apparently, it's in LA.' Pacino then went on to discuss the old ways of Tinsel town, when the film industry 'exchanged ideas, there was communication... To me, that is no longer there, but that's only natural.'

However, the actor did had this to say about Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which received an audience cheer: 'I just saw Guardians of the Galaxy... It was amazing. I did find it the most entertaining, inventive, beautiful film. So I'm not anti that at all.' Who would have thought that Guardians of the Galaxy would restore Al Pacino's faith in the Hollywood system? Or do we have a possible future cameo on our hands?
