New trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Can you believe the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie came out way back in 1990? No, me neither. That’s 24 years ago! Wow, now I do feel old.

Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie joins cast of Star Wars VII

So the word is that Gwendoline Christie is the newest addition to the cast of the new Star Wars movie.

No doubt that this will be welcome news to the millions of fans out there of HBO’s Game of Thrones. English Actress Christie plays Brienne of Tarth, seen most recently on the hit TV show battling The Hound during the last episode of Season 04.

At a towering 6′ 3″ in height, Christie certainly has the stature that in my opinion could suit any number of character types in the upcoming space extravaganza. I for one will be really interested in learning what role she has actually landed.

Star Wars Episode VII, directed by J.J.Abrams and starring John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson and Lupita Nyong’o, as well as returning stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, has a tentative Australian release date for 18th December 2015.

Star Wars gets a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer

There’s no doubt that the trailers for Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy have really sparked the imagination of the movie-going public. Or at least the imagination of us fan-boys anyway!

Misfits’ Iwan Rheon joins Game of Thrones as Ramsay Snow

Yep, it seems we finally have our Bastard of Bolton, Ramsay Snow.

He's one of those characters that fans have even clamouring for, for some time now. And the fans certainly seem impressed. And as a huge Misfits fan myself, I'm super excited!

Welshman Iwan Rheon played Simon in the hit UK sci-fi series, and to be fair he's got that creepy air about him that will suit Ramsay just perfectly. Great casting choice.

For those not familiar with his work, do yourself and watch Misfits at the first available opportunity. The first five minutes of the very first episode is pure TV gold, and the reason I love British TV so much.

Season 3 of Game of Thrones has a release date on HBO of the 31st March 2013.

Man of Steel Official Trailer

For many of us who've grown up with the Man of Steel on our big screens the character of Superman is an icon, from the very first time Christopher Reeve donned the famous blue and red pajamas back in 1978.

Superman is arguably the most iconic superhero there is, perhaps even more so than Batman or Spiderman. I've never been his biggest fan personally, but I'm getting excited about this one.

After a miserable attempt in 2006 by Bryan Singer to bring the franchise back with a “sort-of-sequel” (no offence Bryan, love you work normally, but…), we now get Zack Snyder (he of 300 and Watchmen fame) bringing a reboot in 2013.

With the soon to be huge Henry Cavill taking the lead, and a much “grittier” style (a la The Dark Knight of course), this promises to be huge….

two new trailers have been released. Well, it's the same trailer with two different voiceovers – the first with Russell Crowe narrating as Jor-El, and the second with Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent…

Man of Steel has a release date of the 13th June 2013 in Australia, and a release date of the 14th June for the US and UK. No release date is yet available for Canada.

 

Gwendoline Christie, aka Brienne of Tarth

One of the more popular search terms on The All Action No Plot Movie Blog is for the actor who plays fan-favourite Brienne of Tarth in HBO's Game of Thrones.

I'm talking of course, about Gwendoline Christie.

I must confess it's almost criminal that I've overlooked writing a post about the English actor before now. In fact, the post made last year announcing that she had been cast for season 2 is still one of my blog's more popular posts, even after all this time.

There aren't many bio details out there, besides that Gwendoline was born in the South Downs, England and that she was a semi-professional gymnast as a youth. She has a couple of theatre roles under her belt, but not much in the way of TV or movie work, besides small roles.

However, she is probably most well-known for being the subject of Australian portrait photographer Polly Borland's Bunny Nose project. This rather odd and creepy set of shots portrays the actress in a series of poses often wearing nothing more than tights and bizarre bunny costumes.

Gwendoline was recently intervewed at the London Film and Comic Con, see the interview here.

Game of Thrones Season 3 is due for premiere on HBO on March 31st 2013.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Marvel have just announced that the Captain America sequel will be officially titled Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

It has a US release date of the 4th April 2014, with no dates yet for Australia, Canada or the UK.

For those not familiar with this Captain America story arc, The Winter Soldier is a Russian assassin from WWII who is kept in cryogenic stasis when not on missions, hence hasn't aged since the end of the war. His real identity is somewhat more interesting…

The other rumour currently doing the rounds is that of Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) being cast as Falcon in the upcoming movie. Back in 1969, when the Falcon was introduced as one of the world's first black superheroes, he became Cap's closest ally.

Currently Chris Evans is the only confirmed star to sign on.

Keep posted for more details as they emerge.
