GoT Season 2 Details

The UK magazine SciFiNow, issue 64, is dishing details about season 2 of Game Of Thrones.

Winteriscoming.net is featuring an excerpt from the article. Click on the blue winteriscoming tag above to check it out.

What pops out for Lena fans is one little sentence...
'Cersei has a set of ornamental and elegant, ‘Valkyrie-like’ armour.'

You can go to SciFiNow.co.uk to view the break down of this issue. The article is titled 'War Comes To Westeros: Behind the scenes in Belfast for the bloody new season of Game Of Thrones'.
You'll also find links to buy a copy of the magazine digitally via Apple Newsstand, or online from the ImagineShop. But I don't know if this option is available outside the UK.

Poster for Game of Thrones revealed

Here's the first official teaser poster for the second season of Game of Thrones!

PS. Happy Valentine's Day!!

Vigilandia plot revealed???

Bloody-disgusting.com is reporting plot details for Lena's new movie, 'Vigilandia'.

The sci-fi thriller takes place in a future where a new regime, called "New Founding Fathers of America", seek to control an epidemic of violence and crime with an experiment called "The Cure". The Cure is a completely hypocritical "event" where, three times a year, for 12 hours, murder is completely legal. The film is said to play like a home invasion film with a heavy political theme.
Filming is currently underway in Los Angeles.

Click on the blue 'bloody-disgusting' tag above to check out their site, read the whole article, and leave comments.


Update: Movie Name Change
The title for the movie 'Vigilandia' has been changed to 'The Purge'. And the official synopsis has been released.
The Plot:
"If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? In The Purge, a speculative thriller that follows one family over the course of a single night, four people will be tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home. In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity-including murder-becomes legal. The police can't be called. Hospitals suspend help. It's one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking. When an intruder breaks into James Sandin's (Ethan Hawke) gated community during the yearly lockdown, he begins a sequence of events that threatens to tear a family apart. Now, it is up to James, his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their kids to make it through the night without turning into the monsters from whom they hide."

The Purge will be released in theaters on May 13th, 2013.

:-SS nail biting :-(||> give up

HBO’s Game Of Thrones returns for its second season starting April 1st.

Movie News


2012 is shaping up to be a busy year for Lena. 'Game Of Thrones' will premiere April 1st. And the movie 'Dredd' is scheduled for a September release.
On the horizon are two other movies Lena is confirmed to star in. 'Vigilandia' co-stars Ethan Hawke and is scheduled to begin shooting on February 13th. No word on the plot yet but they are calling it a sci-fi thriller. Let's hope it's good.
Next up is 'The Unseen' set to shoot in late spring with a release date in 2013. This is the plot description: After the death of their son Joel, Gemma (Lena Headey) is struck by terrifying attacks of blindness and her husband Will starts to hear him. New friend Paul suggests the couple escape to his lighthouse retreat. It sounds ideal. But Paul has other plans. Sounds creepy but good...
Not yet confirmed is 'Mariah Mundi & the Midas Box'. The plot description: Mariah is about a 15-year-old boy, Mariah Mundi, whose world is torn apart by the disappearance of his parents, then the kidnapping of his younger brother by unknown assailants. Lena is in negotiations to play a witch-seductress alongside Sam Neill's villain character. Also in the movie will be Michael Sheen playing a Indiana Jones-ish adventurer. Hmm, kiddie movie? But if Lena is in it, I'm game!
