It looks like Tilda Swinton is beating out Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy and Ken Watanabe for the role of The Ancient One, the mentor and ally of Stephen Strange. Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, is a former surgeon who after injuring his hands, discovers the supernatural world of magic and demons.
The Ancient One helps Strange become Earth's Sorcerer Supreme, and a prime candidate for The Avengers. While, The Ancient One has typically been portrayed as male, Tilda Swinton seems like the perfect choice to play an ethereal, immortal figure not of this world.
We know you put it out of your mind, we did as well. But Lo, the angels of Hollywood have spoken and the remake of 1991's classic Point Break will actually release this winter.
Here's your first look at the Keanu-Reeves-impersonator Luke Bracey and the nothing-at-all-like-Patrick-Swayze Édgar Ramírez doing death defying things in the name of some Robin Hood aspirations.
But here's the thing: Warner Bros. didn't want you to watch this movie and wish for more, no. So they turned everything up to 13, bypassing 11 and 12, in some slightly silly maelstrom of EXTREME action.
For instance, here's some surfing from the original:
And here's some from the new trailer:
Whether this trailer excites you or not, we can all be equally sad that we won't see Keanu trying with all of his little heart to speak Spanish in the near future.
Many were deeply unhappy about the treatment of Sansa and the inclusion of sexual assault against her that did not exist in the book's treatment. A lot of people said this was the final straw and vowed to stop watching the show entirely.
Before you grab your pitchforks or pat yourselves on the back, keep in mind that this step decline could just as easily have been the work of the Memorial Day weekend. Remember that sweet blissful three days you had off? Those were the days.
With Game of Thrones season 5 casting now over halfway over, it's the perfect time to receive some season 6 casting news. Lucky for you, that's exactly what Watchers on the Wall reported May 26.
This speculation may easily leak into spoiler territory, so be warned!
Seemingly, the most important news out of their reporting is the apparent casting of Randyll Tarly, otherwise known as Sam's dad. The listing describes the casting as: "Aged 50's to 60's, he's one of the greatest soldiers in Westeros- a humorless martinet, severe and intimidating. He demands martial discipline in the field and in his home."
For those that read the books, if that proves true, it highlights at least one of the plots that would come next year and the places the story will travel.
Here are the other castings Watchers on the Wall announces:
Pirate, man in his 40's to late 50's. He's "an infamous pirate who has terrorized seas all around the world. Cunning, ruthless, with a touch of madness."
He's a dangerous-looking man. A very good part this season.
Mother, in her 50's. She's a sweet, plump, and adoring mother, and has a soft spot for one of her children who benefits from her decency.
Sister, in her early 20s. She's a kind, friendly and unpretentious woman.
Brother, in his early to mid-20's . Athletic, a good hunter, an excellent swordsman, manly, not particularly bright but the favourite child of the father.
Priest, in his 40's or 50's. A gruff ex-soldier who found religion. Now a no-nonsense rural priest who ministers to the poor of the countryside. He's salt-of-the-earth man who has weathered many battles.
What do you think, readers? Any more of those ring a bell?
