Are you excited about the two biggest super hero movies this year - Kenneth Branagh's THOR starring Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins and Ray Stevenson, (which will follow The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war so he is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous
villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth) and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER (which will follow Steve Rogers who grew up a frail youth in a poor family and who enlists in the army when the Nazi threat appears in Europe after which they make a super hero out of him with some Super-Soldier Serum and "vita-rays". Armed with his indestructible shield  the newly born Captain America starts his war against evil) with Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones and Dominic Cooper. If not, maybe these two new pictures showing both of them in action will get you excited before they premiere this summer in cinemas?

"Beyond Hollywood" has released the third, super exciting, trailer for the upcoming epic television series GAME OF THRONES, which will start this April on HBO. Staring Sean Bean, Jason Momoa and Lena
,  it will follow seven noble families which fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Political and sexual intrigue abound. The primary families are the Stark, Lannister, and Baratheon families. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard Stark to serve as his chief advisor. Eddard, suspecting that his predecessor had been murdered, accepts so that he can investigate further. It turns out more than one family is plotting to take the throne. The Queen's family, the Lannisters, may be hatching an incestuous plot to take control. Across the sea, the last surviving members of the previously deposed ruling family, the Targaryens, are also plotting a return to power. The conflict between these families and others, including the Greyjoys, the Tullys, the Arryns, and the Tyrells, leads to war. Meanwhile, in the north, an ancient evil awakens. Amidst war and the political confusion, a brotherhood of misfits, The Night's Watch, is all that stands between the realms of men and the horrors beyond.


  1. Very intense! Love the action and intrigue.

  2. I'm very excited for Thor and Game of Thrones, but not sure what to think about Captain America yet. I am trying to remember if you've posted a trailer for that one, or if they haven't released one...

    I was a little leery about Thor when I first heard about it, but after seeing the trailer you posted, I can't wait to check that one out. So maybe it'll be the same for The First Avenger? We'll see...

  3. @Liz
    yes, intense is the right word to describe the trailer!

    no, CAPTAIN AMERICA trailer will be released in about a month or so. They apparently didn't like the one they did and decided not to release it yet.

  4. I don't care where you cut and paste it from, the Lannisters are not hatching an incestuous plan to take the throne. Jamie and Cersei are twins that were born embraced together and when they came of age, they started fucking. Cersei already has the throne, she doesn't need it.

    Tywin is the one who wants the power. Jamie doesn't care so long as he can bang his sister. The Lannisters are more a study of Lord Acton's maxim of "Absolute power corrupts absolutely."

    And however has written this thing has completely ignored the Martells and the rest of the Dornishmen, which is a shame because the last princess of Dorne is Jon Snow's mother. They've also neglected the fact that Robert's two brothers also vie for the throne after he's been killed.

  5. MJ this is the official synopsis from the studio :) as are all other plots I publish. If they decided to change something in the story or to leave some characters out of the show, it's them not me :)

  6. whoah!!!!!! game of thrones keeps looking better and better!!! whoo hoo!!! :)

  7. I'm also not very enthused about this woman they have playing Catelyn Stark. I wish Jennifer Ehle had worked out better. This woman looks way too old to be playing Catelyn Stark (who should be in her early 30s).

    Sean Bean, however, dead on. And Daenarys is surprisingly hot.

  8. I'm hoping that Martin didn't let them change too much, since he's been pretty involved in the story. I guess we'll wait and see...

  9. Some great actors; Anthony Hopkins and Tommy Lee Jones are among my favorites. The trailer looks awesome.

  10. Now I can clearly see my problem with those two superhero characters, they just looks ridiculous! ;)

  11. Always enjoy anything Tommy Lee Jones and Anthony Hopkins are in.

    Thoughts in Progress

  12. Can't wait for both Thor and CA, however I didn't know about this new series! thanks

  13. You know my thoughts on the way Hollywood has tackled the superhero genre lately, so I will add nothing further. Game of Thrones has the earmarks of a uniquely interesting brand of television. I love medieval fantasy stories. I will definitely give the pilot episode a shot and see if I can get into it. I do not know the source material.

  14. Game of Thrones looks like it'll be a winner. Will be watching that when it's out.

  15. Oooohh, Sean Bean in Game of Thrones looks awesome and so does the whole show. What a wicked trailer. The only way they could make it better would be to include Karl Urban. He makes everything and everyone better. And yes, I know I can't possibly love him more than you, Dez, but I do try. :) Hugs!

  16. I love love love Tommy Lee Jones so I might have to make an effort to see that one...

    As for Game of Thrones...Oh, that trailer is just fantastic! I can't wait!

    But wait...It's on HBO...I won't be seeing the show in April, I can tell you that. :(

  17. I like the era that Captain America is in if he's fighting Nazis. So none of it takes place in the modern era? That's fine with me. My wife and I enjoy movies with Nazis in them. I hope that doesn't give anybody the wrong idea.

    Tossing It Out

  18. I'm looking forward to Thor and C.A.

  19. Okay, Jenks, you really need to put SPOILER ALERT in front of your comments.

    I'm kidding mostly, I know it's up to me to be careful what I read, but damn if you aren't giving quite a bit away there.

    Anyway, I'm reading A Game of Thrones right now, and the book is phenomenal. I'm looking very forward to the series.

  20. Matthew: if Martin ever gets the freaking series done!

  21. Non-awful superhero movies? Sign me up!

  22. Gee those HBO series are getting to be a handful. I don't know why but the hype for Thor isn't really that hypey

  23. Looking forward to both superhero films!

  24. REALLY looking forwards to Game of Thrones. Hope we get it in the UK soon as.

  25. I love trailers but I don't see me spending money on these movies. :o(

  26. the trailer for Game of Thrones is very intriguing. man I like it, but I'd like to see more than just different people sitting on the throne and talking!

    Thor and Captain America are two that I definitely can't wait for this summer! Thanks for showing them some love!

  27. Where is the trailer for Captain America? I want to see some shield throwing and some Hugo Weaving chewing up the scenery. Well whenever it comes out I know I will find it here first.

  28. I'm eager to see the two superhero movies. I don't know much about Captain America or Thor so it's great that I have the two-hour recap.

  29. @Vics
    glad to see you excited about it :)

    they are good actors!

    ah, I'd love to see you in those costumes, Jaccsy :)

    they are great actors!

    ah, I'm glad I got you informed on the TV series

    GAME OF THRONES will surely be a great epic show!

  30. @Lisa
    I can't wait for it to come out!

    indeed, you could never love him more than I do :) Find yourself another love :)))

    I'm sure some Canadian TV will play it soon.

    what ideas? :PPPP

    me too!

  31. @Matthew
    ah, I hope you're enjoying the book too

    glad you like it!

    it's because it's directed by Branagh who isn't that huge in USA :(

    me too!

    I'm sure Sky will broadcast it in UK

  32. @Mary
    ah, sorry to hear that

    I've written many times about GAME OF THRONES, and you can find earlier trailers which show much more, just use the search button in the right sidebar!

    that trailer should come later on in February, as I said before it was delayed because it wasn't amazing enough.

    glad to see you eager!

  33. Is great more things are coming out for CA, I wonder when will see more of the baddies.

    OML ;o)

  34. Oh Dez, I am not a poacher and therefore will graciously bow to your obviously greater affections. It will be hard, nay, impossible to replace Karl, though. :(

  35. @Lurky
    I'm guessing you mean when will you see Dicky Armitage in CAPTAIN AMERICA :))

    well, Justin Timberlake, Henry Cavill, Wenty Miller and Patrick Wilson are doing a great job in trying to take Karl's place ... :)

  36. thanks, I will search and look at the trailers!

  37. Cap and Thor look badass. Can't wait for the actual Avengers movie.

  38. yep, the two of them will be the best part of THE AVENGERS.

  39. *sighs* Oh Dezz! "Dicky"? What's wrong with the fine name of Richard?

    Yes, when *will* we get to see the baddies of Captain America...? ;-)

  40. but I call him Dicky Armitage in the most cordial and lovable of ways :)

  41. I'm looking forward to both Thor and Captain America; and Game of Thrones is going to be EPIC Thank the gods that we can soon get HBO over in the UK :D

  42. we have HBO on cable here in Serbia, but it's pay per view and it isn't the same as the American one which means it has older shows and not so fresh premieres...
