“We had the read-through a while ago and at the end of it, we were all on our feet, applauding and crying. We had everyone there, everyone who’s had any part in this. It was amazing. We closed the blinds and shut ourselves off from the rest of the world and had six hours in this room just reading it through and crying and laughing. We had our emotional bit and then we thought, ‘Well now we’ve got eight months. We’ve still got a while to get through!’”
It’s no surprise that the cast would

At least, that’s according to Dark Phoenix star Sophie Turner, who is poised to take charge as Sansa Stark, acting Lady of the North, one last time. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, the so-hot-right-now actress previewed the “bittersweet” finale, and why the final read-through of season 8 brought “pretty much everyone” to tears.
This is by no means the first time that a member of the Thrones family has drawn attention to the series’ emotional end; back in October, Jon Snow Aegon Targaryen himself, Kit Harington, admitted that he also choked up upon reading the final script.
And that’s something Sophie Turner echoed in the interview with THR:
It was very, very bittersweet. The first day of
Thrones, which earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best TV Series – Drama this week for its seventh season, is currently in the midst of production on its final season, which is expected to last through August of 2018. It's a long wait for fans of the juggernaut HBO fantasy franchise, but the participants themselves are well and fully entrenched in the final war...
The film, formerly titled “Huntsville,” also stars Dylan McDermott and Jack Kilmer. It’s directed by Eric England from a screenplay by Anthony Ragnone II. The script, which made the 2014 Black List, centers on a solitary man living a dull existence in the sleepy town. He raises eyebrows when he develops a questionable relationship with a recently transplanted high school student.
Turner is best known for her role as Sansa Stark in “Game of Thrones.” She portrayed Jean Grey in “X-Men: Apocalypse.”
The festival, which is being billed as a mini-Sundance, runs from Feb. 8 to Feb. 11 and will feature other indie world premieres, studio films, shorts, and episodics.
“It’s a real honor to have such a prestigious title as ‘Josie’ open our first ever Mammoth Film Festival,” said founder
"I really wanted to acknowledge the strength of the women in the comic and in the actresses that we have and the central storyline demands it."
The Dark Phoenix story has been told before on the big screen,
It’s a theoretical benchmark for movies (and indeed all fiction) that asks whether said picture includes a scene in which two named female characters engage in a conversation about anything other than a man. Sounds simple, right? Think again.
Next time you sit down to enjoy a movie, keep the Bechdel test in mind and you’ll soon realize that many films actually come up short. That doesn’t mean that they’re intrinsically bad; rather, the Bechdel test was designed to draw attention to gender representation, and how it’s often tipped in favor of men – The Lord of the Rings and Avatar spring to mind as famous examples of films that have failed the Bechdel test outright. X-Men: Dark Phoenix, on the other hand, is not one of those movies.
As part of Entertainment Weekly’s continued coverage,

HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones is barreling toward its eighth and final season, and the seven-episode seventh season is out now on Blu-ray. Commentaries are available for all the episodes, with four episodes getting two tracks each, and a nice assortment of bonus features help break down what happened this year so we’re all ready for next year’s conclusion.
I’ve always been a sci-fi and fantasy fan, but George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice of Fire series was always one of those “Oh, yeah, I need to
Earlier in the week we saw some first look images from the movie – Fox’s second attempt at adapting The Dark Phoenix Saga after the disappointing X-Men: The Last Stand – and now Kinberg has been chatting to EW about the movie, stating that he intends on course correcting the series after mistakes made with the previous chapter, X-Men: Apocalypse.
“I think we took our eye off what has always been the bedrock of the franchise which is these characters,” said Kinberg. It became about global destruction and visual effects over emotion and character… One of the things I went into this film wanting to do is obviously focus on the characters and give them
After last week’s first look at Avengers: Infinity War, 20th Century Fox decided to give us our first glimpse at its big 2018 superhero team-up movie this week with the release of a batch of images from X-Men: Dark Phoenix featuring Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Professor X (James McAvoy), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), director Simon Kinberg and Jessica Chastain’s as-yet-unrevealed villain
Kinberg also confirmed the 'X-Men' are heading to the 'mutant' island 'Genosha', led by 'Magneto' ( Fassbender), building a new life for himself and his fellow mutants.
"He’s set up this place for mutants that don’t have a home to go to," said Kinberg, "and they can seek refuge there, They have to work as a community but it’s a safe place for them and they’ll be accepted. It’s the mutant homeland."
"...in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix"...
"...returning from a mission in space, 'Jean Grey' is exposed to the deadly radiation of a solar flare and briefly attains her 'ultimate potential' as a telepath and telekinetic.
The same week that Sophie Turner revealed that Game of Thrones won't be back until 2019, the star of another hit genre show is saying his show will skip 2018 as well.

“Jean absorbs those solar flares and then hurls them back out into space,” said Kinberg. “That’s what triggers, awakens, creates this Phoenix force and voice inside her. What appears to the world to be another heroic victory by the X-Men in saving stranded people in space we realize is the the thing that begins the unraveling of Jean and the unraveling of secrets Charles told her.”
So, while we’re getting to see the X-Men in space, it seems that – as with Kinberg’s first attempt at The Dark Phoenix Saga, X-Men: The Last Stand – the Phoenix will be part of Jean Grey, rather than the
