17 Photos of the Stark Siblings That Prove Blood Is Thicker Than Water
Game of Thrones has taken so much from the Stark family, but we have a feeling that no matter what other horrible things may happen in Westeros, nothing will be able to fully break them. Despite parents Ned and Catelyn being killed off a long time ago, as well as Robb (Richard Madden) and Rickon (Art Parkinson), their remaining children have never stopped loving each other (despite being separated by wars and thousands of miles). And it turns out that their bond is just as strong in real life. Sansa (Sophie Turner), Arya (Maisie Williams), Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright), and "bastard" Jon Snow (Kit Harington) - who isn't Ned's son, but nobody really knows yet - love getting together outside of work. Whether they're hitting a red carpet or just relaxing on a Friday night, we love their sibling-like bond. Keep scrolling to see some of their best moments together

Why Your Favorite Game of Thrones Characters Will Probably Be Separated in Season 8

With each passing day, we inch closer to the premiere of Game of Thrones season eight. Of course, with the premiere not slated until sometime in 2019, we still have quite some time. Luckily, a few choice details about the final season have started to trickle out courtesy of the HBO fantasy epic's cast. In addition to Sophie Turner's recent insight into the finale's script and how much filming they have left, John Bradley - who plays Samwell Tarly - spoke to TV Guide about the characters we'll see in season eight. Or rather, where we'll see them. "These characters are so detailed and so rich, you can feel that you've got a pretty good handle on your character. You can predict how your character will react in any given circumstance, but when you place these characters in a new environment, it's always putting them under a microscope, and you

The first read-through for Game of Thrones season 8 left the cast in tears, says Sophie Turner

Apparently, the scripts for the final season of Game of Thrones left the cast in a very emotional state. In an interview with EW, Sophie Turner — who was plugging the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix — inevitably talked about Game of Thrones, and the reaction that the cast had during the first read-through:

“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

The Game Of Thrones Cast Were Brought To Tears By “Incredibly Emotional” Finale

The eighth and final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones won’t return until 2019, that much we know, but when it does, it’ll seemingly reduce us all into blubbering wrecks.

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

Sophie Turner’s Drama ‘Josie’ to Launch Mammoth Film Festival

Sophie Turner’s Drama ‘Josie’ to Launch Mammoth Film Festival
Sophie Turner’s independent drama “Josie” has been selected as the opening night film for the inaugural Mammoth Film Festival on Feb. 8, Variety has learned exclusively.

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

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Is Tribute to X-Women, Female Strength

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Is Tribute to X-Women, Female Strength
Last week was quite a big one for fans of the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix, since fans got their first look at the Dark Phoenix that consumes Sophie Turner's Jean Grey character. We also learned about a huge twist that apparently comes halfway through the movie, along with more details about Jessica Chastain's mystery character, who is an alien shapeshifter and not Lilandra, as previously believed. Writer-director Simon Kinberg, who makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix, revealed in a new interview that he wanted this movie to focus on not just Jean Grey, but the other important female mutant characters as well. Here's what Simon Kinberg had to say below.

"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."

X-Men: Dark Phoenix to serve as a tribute to the women of the team

After the Dark Phoenix story-line was largely blotched in X-men: The Last Stand, Simon Kinberg will have the opportunity to redeem himself with X-men: Dark Phoenix, which will much more appropriately put Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) front and center. But it won't just be Jean Grey under the spotlight, but also the other women of the film as well, including Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) and the... Read More...

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Is A Film For The “X-Women” Of Fox’s Franchise

You’ve heard of it, haven’t you? The Bechdel test?

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.

Simon Kinberg on course correcting the X-Men series with Dark Phoenix, confirms Genosha

After more than a decade serving as writer and producer on 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise, Simon Kinberg now finds himself behind the camera for the latest chapter of the main series, X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

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

"X-Men: Dark Phoenix" - Enter 'Jean Grey'

According to director Simon Kinberg, principal photography has wrapped on the latest Fox "X-Men" movie, "X-Men: Dark Phoenix"", filmed in IMAX based on the Marvel Comics characters, starring Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Sophie Turner and James McAvoy, opening November 2, 2018:

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.

Simon Kinberg talks X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Jean Grey’s transformation

Following hot on the heels of yesterday’s first look images [which we have for you here], long time X-Men writer-producer and debut director Simon Kinberg has been talking to Entertainment Weekly about next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and more specifically Jean Grey’s transformation into the Phoenix.

“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
