BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Regardless of what anyone may have told you, there’s not a long-term plan for Game Of Thrones. The last two books aren’t finished. HBO can’t decide on exactly how many seasons of the mega-hit show it wants to do.
There’s one guy who isn’t gonna play that game, though, and it’s Jason Momoa. The Game Of Thrones actor has a brutish physicality that somehow blinds people to his other talents and smarts. And he’s fed up with that, enough to have turned down the part of Drax in Guardians Of The Galaxy.
The third season is spread over five discs, each featuring at least a few bonus features for fans. The bulk of the extras are on the fifth disc, which also conveniently offers the final episode of Season 3. Game Of Thrones is a show that always likes to play its most emotional and horrifying moments a couple of episodes from the end of the season.
Interstellar is due for release on November 7, 2014, which puts Nolan and his team on a pretty short timeline to assemble what sounds like a special effects-heavy effort, complete with Nolan's customary stunning IMAX photography. Feel free to place your bets on when we'll actually know what role any of these people are playing in the film

Short Mornings is being described as the “erotic odyssey” of one man sleeping his way through New York City. The character Madden would play reportedly sets his sights on bedding seven women in as many nights
This is by far the director's biggest gig, which fits with the strategy Marvel has employed for years of hiring low-profile or otherwise cheap directors to kick off their superhero franchises. Jon Favreau was the actor-turned-director behind Elf when Marvel hired him to make Iron Man
Branagh has previosuly proven to be comfortable shifting between larger-budgeted productions (usually Shakespeare) and smaller-scale ensemble pieces, such as when he went from Henry V to the excellent mystery Dead Again, or from the self-contained Sleuth to Thor. He’s also breaking up his directorial effort with acting gigs.
Bean is close to finalizing a deal to play Snow White’s father, whose kingdom is decimated by the fairy tale’s evil queen (Julia Roberts). Lily Collins of The Blind Side has been cast as the apple-eating, dwarf-befriending maiden, while Armie Hammer of The Social Network and Gore Verbinski’s upcoming Lone Ranger feature will play Snow’s hunky love interest.
No matter the language, Jason Momoa looks like a complete badass in Marcus Nispel’s Conan the Barbarian reboot/prequel/3D adventure. A 37-photo gallery has been posted on the French Web site Fantasy.fr, giving us all sorts of shots of the legendary warrior on his personal vendetta through Hyboria.
