The new Captain America trailer, a Game Of Thrones casting call and the first official look at The Hobbit
Captain America trailer two
The second trailer for Captain America has finally hit the Internet. The new, quite long spectacular, contains a lot more information about why Steve Rogers was picked to be the cap and why they didn’t make any more supes. From this, it seems like they have the character spot on, lets just hope that they get old red face as good otherwise it could let the whole film down.
Casting Of Thrones
Ever seen yourself as a fantasy warrior, or even an amputee? Well, now is your chance, as Game Of Thrones needs some extras. The bloody show, which films in Ireland, is holding open casting calls for extras. Not only could you appear on screen but the work is also paid. However, only hairy men and natural women need apply. Oh, and being able to handle a sword wouldn’t harm your chances.
In other Game Of Thrones news, The Tudors’ Anne Boleyn Natalie Dormer has joined the cast for the second season where she’ll portray Margaery Tyrell – future wife of King Robert’s brother Renly Baratheon. Catch her next in Captain America and BBC Three’s upcoming supernatural drama The Fades. Busy lady.
The BBC Torchwood: Miracle Day site has finally gone live. For a while Starz had us convinced the BBC played no part in all this. There isn’t much on there as of yet, but as the days between then and the shows release evaporate, expect a lot more content. As of now there are some great character profiles, especially on the new characters that will be joining the show from across the pond.
Welcome to Hobbiton
In case you didn’t see our tweet last night, the studio behind The Hobbit has released the first official image of Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. And we must say, we like it. As well as Bilbo, there is a new image of Sir Ian McKellen taking up the wizard staff and pipe as Gandalf once again. The film isn’t due till next year so a lot more pics should be on the way.
According to the Transformers films star, Shia LaBeouf, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon will be the best 3D film ever made. It is a little hard to comprehend as Transformers 2 wasn’t exactly the greatest of films, but with this, he explains how this film is a lot simpler and there are only four or five characters you need to focus on. Only four or five? Should be real easy viewing then.
