‘Game of Thrones’: 5 burning questions for tonight’s Castle Black battle PDF Print E-mail

The Battle of Castle Black gets underway tonight and once again EW will be live recapping HBO’s Game of Thrones and presenting some post-episode interviews. Going into the fourth season’s ninth episode — which takes place entirely at Castle Black, The Wall and nearby areas — here are our five burning spoiler-free questions:

Will Jon Snow and Ygritte reunite? Terminator Ygritte has been coldly killing villagers since Jon broke her heart. Now the ex-loves are on a collision course, and the big question is what will happen if/when they reunite. Could Jon kill Ygritte? Seems doubtful unless he was somehow forced into it. Could Ygritte kill Jon? Seems likely because she purposefully missed his vitals last time and has seemingly been kicking herself ever since. Could they just ditch this battle and go find a nice cabin somewhere and live out the winter snuggling by the fire with Ygritte explaining to Jon all that he does not know? Can’t see it.

Will Sam and Gilly reunite? Now these two definitely should go for the whole cabin-fireplace option because neither are really equipped for wartime. It would be nice for Sam to get some piece of mind that he didn’t get Gilly killed by putting her into Molestown.  

- Will Jon show up Janos Slynt and Alliser Thorne? Snow has taken so much grief from these two scheming jerks, and this battle could be his chance to prove himself — if he’s given the chance. (Or maybe right when we think Jon is going to win the battle The Mountain will show up and crush his head.)

Will Mance Rayder’s forces break through The Wall? The Wildling advance party is approaching Castle Black from the south and Mance’s armies are coming to The Wall from the north. In between are only 100 or so Night’s Watch brothers and a huge ice wall. Will Mance’s forces break through? Perhaps this is the better question: Do we care if Mance’s forces break through? People traveling around Westeros keep running into murderers, thugs and rapists so the prospect of more murderers, thugs and rapists crossing the border illegally isn’t really keeping me up at night. We don’t want anything bad to happen to Jon, Samwell, Ygritte and Gilly, of course, but leading up to this week I haven’t really been feeling the stakes of this fight, I’m merely looking forward to the spectacle of it. Perhaps if we spent more time with Mance (who would have thought he’d be off-screen entirely this season so far?) and had a sense of his desires and plans vs. the Night’s Watch team, the conflict would feel more urgent.

Will Ghost do anything cool? We haven’t seen much direwolf action this season. C’mon Jon, release the hound!

For more, here are the Game of Thrones showrunners talking about last week’s episode and teasing up tonight’s battle.

‘Breaking Bad’ Spanish remake: Top moments from the new Walter, Jesse PDF Print E-mail

“Yo no estoy en peligro. El peligro soy yo”Breaking Bad, Episode 6, Season 4. (Translation: “I’m not in danger. I am the danger.”)

Say hola to Walter Blanco, better known to U.S. audiences as Walter White, the quiet, cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned meth cook in cult drama Breaking Bad. In Metastasis, Walter looks the same – actor Diego Trujillo’s craggy face, goatee and wire-rimmed glasses make him an eerie doppelgänger for Bryan Cranston – but he speaks Spanish and lives in the Colombian capitol of Bogotá.

“That [danger quote] was my favorite line from the series – it’s so dramatic,” says Trujillo of the iconic scene where Walt faces off against Skylar in a memorable monologue. “This is great writing, an amazing scene that works great in any language.”

But fans, take note: while the two shows are nearly identical from scene to scene, there are several key differences beyond the script’s language.

For starters, Walter is a private school teacher (in Latin America, private schools are attended in greater numbers than public school). The RV he and Jesse used as their meth lab has been replaced by a rickety school bus (RVs aren’t common in Colombia) and Saul Bueno (Bueno = good, get it?) doles out legal advice on a late night talk show, because a commercial just isn’t grand enough. And the White’s pool has been replaced with a fountain that serves as the backdrop for one particularly memorable moment. (It’s too cold for an outdoor pool in mountainous Bogotá.) Fans, remember when Skylar falls into the pool in the fourth episode of season 5? Well, things go a little differently for Cielo (the literal translation of “Sky” in Spanish).

“We were able to play with a dream sequence, where Cielo thinks she’s in a pool but actually falls into a fountain,” says Roberto Urbino, who plays the role of José Miguel (Jesse) in Metastasis. “It came out kind of poetic, actually.”

Gone are the crew of neo-Nazis who are appear in the last season, replaced with a far-right Colombian paramilitary group. Even the U.S.-Mexico border war looks slightly different in Metastasis, with a Latin American perspective on the trickle-down implications of the conflict.

“The fact is, most of the issues that Albuquerque faces as a border town are the same problems we face all across Latin America,” says Urbino, a Colombian actor who has had guest starred on U.S. shows like The Mentalist and Grey’s Anatomy. “There was no difficulty in translating that particular situation for our show.”

Metastasis – which will cram six years of action into episodes that will air nightly on Univision for three months, a serial format made popular by telenovelas – boasts high production values, unlike the traditionally soapy shows and poor remakes prevalent on Spanish-language television.

“I hope that people will be able to talk about the ethics around the decisions Walter makes,” notes Trujillo. “There’s too much of a stigma around drugs right now. But if your family was in risk or in danger, what would you do to keep them safe? What Walter does makes him human. It would be great if those discussions came up.”

Urbino, a long-time fan of the series, had other concerns while filming. Namely, weaning himself off Breaking Bad, which aired its final season while Metastasis was in production.

“I had to stop watching the series in order to focus on [our version of the] story,” he explains. “I had [Aaron Paul’s] Jesse stuck in my head, but I had to find a way to make the character my own.”

And just like the original, Metastasis may leave fans hungry for more after its memorable last scene. Especially if Walter didn’t actually die, as Cranston recently hinted.

“[That] possibility would be fascinating,” says Trujillo, laughing.

Metastasis will premiere in the U.S. (sadly, without English subtitles) on June 8 at 10 ET/PT on Univision, Unimas, and Galavision. Check out an exclusive trailer of the show below.

Tony Awards 2014 winners: ‘A Gentleman’s Guide’ and ‘All the Way’ take top prizes PDF Print E-mail

Iggy Azalea -- Gets Ambushed By Weird Al ... PLEEEEASE Let Me Parody Your Song (VIDEO) PDF Print E-mail

060814_weird_al_iggy_launchYou know you're blowing up in the music biz when Weird Al wants to parody one of your songs ... which is exactly what happened Friday to Iggy Azalea -- and we got the whole thing on video.

Weird Al was backstage at KS107.5's Summer Jam in Colorado when he started pleading with Iggy. He's said he always tries to get permission from other artists before doing his thing.

Sources at the show tell us Al was really cool about it -- and even left Iggy a copy of his proposed lyrics. Unclear which Iggy hit he's targeting ... but Al might have dropped a "Fancy" hint with this IG post from the show.

Make sure you watch the clip to the very end ... for Iggy's awesome ending.

Casper Smart Walks From Jennifer Lopez with Sweet Rides ... But That's It PDF Print E-mail

0606_casper_smart_fond_memories_mainCasper Smart is keeping some fabulous parting gifts in the wake of his breakup with Jennifer Lopez ... but he's not getting any cash ... he's now strictly on his own.

Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... Casper gets to keep 2 motorcycles, a jeep and a Dodge Ram truck.

Pretty sweet so far, but that's where it ends.  Casper's days tooling around L.A. in that white Bentley are over.  Ditto flying private jets, the fancy Hamptons mansion and the Hidden Hills estate.

The toughest change for Casper -- he won't be sitting front row during Paris Fashion Week with Kanye.

And there's this.  Our sources say Jennifer won't be doling out any money for Casper to land on his feet, but we're told that's the way he wants it.  As it was put to us, "He's too much of a man" and hasn't asked for anything.

Well, Melanie Griffith is gonna be single soon ...

Master P -- ATTACK WITH STEEL CHAIR ... During Fight At Rapper's Basketball Game PDF Print E-mail

0606-take-a-seat-08
Master P's youth basketball game got straight up WWE ... when a fight broke out on the court and someone in the crowd got HIT WITH A STEEL CHAIR ... and TMZ Sports has the insane footage. 

It all went down back in March when P was coaching his team, The P Miller Ballers at a tournament at a high school gym in Tennessee. 

It's unclear what started the brawl ... but it escalated VERY quickly -- with one very large man getting SMACKED over the head by a guy wielding a steel chair. 

The guy who got hit didn't go down like they do in wrestling -- and fought back against the chair-wielder. 

The Nashville Police Department tells us ... cops responded to a call about a "large fight" in the gym and quickly took control of the situation. 

We're told no arrests were made -- but 2 people (a 46-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man) were treated at the scene for apparent minor injuries. 

For the record, it doesn't appear Master P was involved in any of the fighting.

Still, Mick Foley would be proud ...

'Edge of Tomorrow' is a must-see, Tom Cruise's best in years PDF Print E-mail

edge of tomorrow grab ap.jpg

This image released by Warner Bros. Pictures shows Emily Blunt, left, and Tom Cruise in a scene from "Edge of Tomorrow."Warner Bros. Pictures

Over the past decade, many action films have attempted to emulate the video game “shooter” structure, but none has ever come close to capturing a game’s exhilarating – and sometimes frustrating -- user experience than director Doug Liman’s “Edge of Tomorrow”, which is a surprising and unforgettable adrenaline rush and is so far the summer’s best action film.

Tom Cruise – who can still run, jump and fight monsters like a 20-year-old action star -- is similar to a game’s player.  He is Major William Cage, a soldier who has never seen combat and hides in front of the camera as the military’s media spokesperson. But when asked by the General (Brendan Gleeson) to broadcast from the front lines as the army storms the Normandy beaches to fight an invading alien race, Cage blackmails his superior to avoid combat. This backfires and he is demoted to Private under the command of an intolerant Master Sergeant (Bill Paxton) and put on the front lines in a combat position anyway. And he is immediately killed.

ADVERTISEMENT

ADVERTISEMENT

But he wakes at the start of the previous day with the memory of all that had happened. Like the classic Bill Murray comedy “Groundhog Day,” Cage relives the same day over and over again, though here his day is reset every time he gets killed. A typically refined Emily Blunt surprises as the brutish war hero Rita who has all the answers to Cage’s burning questions about his bizarre dilemma – and it involves him being the only person able to save the planet from alien domination.

Like a video game, with each restart Cage learns to survive, outsmart the enemy and level-up. With each new start, the film impressively becomes more tense and the action more extreme as he and Rita make it closer to the final alien boss.

This is one of the better militaristic sci-fi movies to come along since James Cameron's “Aliens.” Doug Liman capitalizes on his frenetic shooting and editing style that he originated with “The Bourne Identity,” blending traditional soldier fraternization scenes with incredible beach invasion chaos with frightening monster attacks and, finally, Bourne-like car chases through Europe. In typical Liman fashion, “Edge of Tomorrow” is all motion, but there is sharp humor and genuine suspense strategically placed throughout, making this a solid and tight action movie.  

Cage is the first character in a long while that allows Cruise to develop a strong character arc. Cruise shows some vulnerability and interesting quirks as Cage starts as a timid and confused soldier. But with each death and rebirth, Cage's confidence is boosted and he eventually turns into a hardened fighting machine. This is the best Cruise has been in years and his palpable chemistry with Blunt is the film’s glue.

While “Edge of Tomorrow” is such an impressive sci-fi (and Tom Cruise) action film, it still never fully gives Cruise’s female counterpart worthy credit, although this is the closest a female character has ever come in a Cruise film to rivaling him. This could have been a bold science fiction classic if Blunt’s and Cruise’s roles simply swapped. Rita is already a badass character. Throughout the majority of the film she is presented as the strongest soldier in the country, but unfortunately in the end she can never step out of Cruise’s imposing shadow as the leading man. When the climax comes, it’s Cruise – isn’t it always? – who has to go it alone to save the day. Putting Blunt in the Cruise role would be infinitely more memorable and compelling. She’s a far more versatile actor and would handle the character’s arc like a champ while still being a badass character. Cruise, too, would then be allowed to further flex his acting chops in a rather atypical role. If only producers would be more comfortable tipping the balance every so often, these movies would have an even greater impact.  

Regardless, “Edge of Tomorrow” is a must-see action film and a wild cinematic ride for the video game generation.

Warner Bros. Pictures. MPAA Rating: PG-13. Running time: 1 hour and 53 minutes.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Mean words hurt water's feelings PDF Print E-mail

First she consciously uncoupled from her husband.

Then she said being criticized on social media was just like war.

Now Gwyneth Paltrow has somehow trumped both!

The Oscar winning actor and mother of two believes bad vibes can bum out water.

Yes, we’re talking H2O.

“I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter,” she wrote on her website GOOP. “I have long had Dr Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it.”

Her scientists friend Dr. Habib Sadeghi described an experiment where “Emoto poured pure water into vials labelled with negative phrases like 'I hate you' or 'Fear'. After 24 hours, the water was frozen, and no longer crystallised under the microscope: It yielded grey, misshapen clumps instead of beautiful lace-like crystals.”

In contrast, he wrote water labeled “'I love you' or 'Peace'” produced  “gleaming, perfectly hexagonal crystals.”

See – its science!

'Shield' actor Michael Jace told father-in-law of wife's death, 911 call shows PDF Print E-mail

 

A 911 call reveals that "The Shield" actor charged with killing his wife notified his father-in-law of the shooting moments after it happened.

The three-minute call released Thursday by the Los Angeles Fire Department includes a statement by April Jace's father that actor Michael Jace said he shot his wife and asked his father-in-law to come and get the couple's two young children.

Jace was arrested on May 19 and police say he called 911 to report that he had shot his wife. That call was not released.

Jace's attorneys Jason Sias and Jamon Hicks did not comment on the audio's contents but noted the case is still early and their investigation continues.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on June 18.

Aside from his role on “The Shield,” in which he played Officer Julian Lowe, Jace most recently had a recurring role on the TNT cop series “Southland.” The Paterson, N.J., native also played law enforcement types in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “Private Practice,” “The Mentalist,” “Burn Notice” and “NYPD Blue.” He had minor roles in films including “Forrest Gump,” “Boogie Nights” and “Planet of the Apes.”

Jace has no prior criminal record, but he reportedly has a history of extreme spousal abuse. Legal documents obtained by TMZ from his 1997 divorce from his first wife, Jennifer Bitterman, indicate that Jace was excessively violent. A witness claimed in the court filings that Jace choked Bitterman and slammed her against a wall in the presence of their 6-month-old son.

Fox News' Hollie McKay and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
