The forecast puts Game of Thrones as far in the future as 2019, but for Sophie Turner and the other actors involved in the HBO series, winter is already here.

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...

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 to serve as a tribute to the women of the team

  • JoBlo
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

The X-Men: Dark Phoenix Creative Team Get Candid About Apocalypse’s Failings

Not since The Last Stand has an X-Men movie opened to such diabolical reviews.

Yes, Bryan Singer’s effects-driven Apocalypse fell flat back in 2016, and to make matters worse, its humbling $543 million gross meant that it was ostensibly written off as an expensive waste of potential. So, what went wrong?

That very question was presented to the creative team behind next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, who delivered a candid assessment of Apocalypse‘s many shortcomings to Entertainment Weekly. But at least according to writer-director Simon Kinberg, who served as co-producer on Singer’s misfire – along with Logan and Days of Future Past – Apocalypse became a muddled mess when visual effects took precedence over the actual story.

I think we took our eye off what has always been the bedrock of the franchise which is these characters. It became about global destruction and visual effects over emotion and character.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix – new details and first images

Simon Brew Dec 8, 2017

The first details and pictures have landed for X-Men: Dark Phoenix...

20th Century Fox has begun to take the wraps off its third of three X-Men movies that it currently has on its 2018 release slate. The film in question is X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which is being directed by long-time X-Men producer and scribe, Simon Kinberg.

It promises something of a sea change for the comic book franchise that continually reinvents itself, with the series set to go into space in the new movie. Sophie Turner is playing Jean Grey, who will play a pivotal part in the film. Also in the cast are returnees James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Has a Huge Twist Fans Won't See Coming

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Has a Huge Twist Fans Won't See Coming
Following the new photos from X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which offered our first look at Jessica Chastain's villain character, new plot details have surfaced. The latest report from Entertainment Weekly teases that the movie will feature some of the biggest set pieces in X-Men franchise history, the mutants' first trip to outer space along with, according to EW, "a massive twist halfway through that will irrevocably change the course of the franchise." Sadly, no further details were given regarding said twist, but James McAvoy revealed that this is the darkest X-Men movie yet.

"This is probably the most emotional X-Men we've done and the most pathos-driven. There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering."

While nothing about this twist has been revealed, there was a rumor that surfaced last month which revealed that writer-director Simon Kinberg intends to show just how powerful the Dark Phoenix is, by having

'Game of Thrones' Won't Return for Final Season Until 2019, Sophie Turner Says

'Game of Thrones' Won't Return for Final Season Until 2019, Sophie Turner Says
The wait for Game of Thrones' final season just got a lot longer.

Sophie Turner revealed in a new interview with Variety that the eighth and final season of HBO's epic fantasy drama, which will consist of six episodes, won't be back for a good while.

"Game of Thrones comes out in 2019," the 21-year-old actress told the publication, when asked about her busy 2018, which includes the November release of X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

HBO declined to comment on an official return date for Game of Thrones, which is currently in production.

The news comes months after HBO Head of Programming, Casey Bloys, hinted that the final episodes could come as late as 2019. “The scripts are written and they’re boarding it all out,” Bloys said in July. “It’s a big season. I don’t have the answer yet, but they’re working on it.”

As for Turner's post-Game of Thrones career, she confessed she feels

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Blowout Points To A Major Character Death

Evidence continues to mount that X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bump off a major character come 2018.

As part of Entertainment Weekly’s red-hot cover story, the outlet has revealed that Dark Phoenix will contain a “massive twist halfway through that will irrevocably change the course of the franchise.” Time travel? X-deaths? The end of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters? All three, perhaps?

Granted, there are naturally a ton of unanswered questions ricocheting around social media in light of EW’s media dump, but if there’s one photo that’s sparked heated debate – more so than even the cover image of Jean Grey becoming one with the Phoenix Force – it’s the graveyard scene featuring Xavier (James McAvoy), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Scott/Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

That tells us two things: one, X-Men: Dark Phoenix will include a major death scene, and two, it’ll likely involve

Sophie Turner says Game of Thrones season 8 will premiere in 2019

Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner has said that the show’s final ever season will debut in 2019.

If folks thought the wait between seasons six and seven were long – season seven arrived in the summer of this year instead of the usual spring window – they won’t enjoy the wait for the show’s conclusion.

One of the stars of the series, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the hit fantasy HBO series, mentioned the 2019 release date in a recent interview with Variety.

After touching on a number of other topics, such as how far along in production season eight is (Turner says there are about six or seven months left), the actress was asked if she was excited for 2018.

“Yeah, I’m really excited. Game of Thrones comes out in 2019. X-Men: Dark Phoenix is in November. Then I have a couple indie movies coming out. I’m
