Mipcom: J.K. Simmons, Olivia Williams Talk New Starz Drama

Viewers will get double the dose of J.K. Simmons, Olivia Williams and Harry Lloyd on Sony and Starz's new parallel-worlds drama, Counterpart, but don't call the Berlin-set drama "sci-fi."

"Say 'sci-fi' and there are so many images that spring to life," said Simmons, adding that while the premise has elements of the genre, it draws heavily on Cold War and spy themes while working in a sci-fi world.

"We really didn't want ray guns," added writer and creator Justin Marks, who framed it as a metaphysical, existential, John LeCarre-inspired spy thriller.

So what's it about? "Regret or hope, depending on...

'Game of Thrones' Podcast: The First Dragon Death, Revisited

"Fire can't kill a dragon."

Tell that to Viserys (Harry Lloyd), closely linked with dragon lore due to his Valyrian roots as a Targaryen, nevertheless murdered via a hot vat of gold to the face. "A crown for a king," the hulking Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa) snarled as he poured the molten metal upon the sniveling brother of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), signaling the first major main character death of Game of Thrones — and certainly not the last, by any stretch of the imagination.

Dany's proclamation about her brother's suitability as a dragon notwithstanding,...

Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) : What was Hot and What Won
Tiff has come and gone. Masses of Canadians attend the festival which is what gives it such a special atmosphere. In Cannes, only the industry attends the festival; the public sets up chairs and ladders to watch the red carpet galas and take pictures. But here the public is as much a part of the festival as the industry.Tiff Bell Lightbox

The industry action which consists of buying and selling of film rights takes place at the Hyatt Hotel on King Street West. The screenings for both public and industry are down the street at the Tiff Bell Lightbox and around the corner at the Scotia Multiplex. The dense mingling of public and industry at these venues and on the street itself which is closed to traffic for the first weekend but is open to pedestrians, photo-op spots, food trucks creates a festive bevvy of activity to the city.

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Wife’

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Wife’
Glenn Close is a tremendous actress. That shouldn’t be news to anyone who’s been even halfway following her career, but if there were still any doubt, her performance in Björn Runge’s “The Wife” erases any remaining room for it. As the supportive yet secretive spouse of an acclaimed writer dealing with some old anxieties in the days before he accepts the Nobel Prize, the veteran actress is a marvel of twisty understatement here, delivering emotions that conceal as much as they reveal, and offering onion-like layers that invite repeat viewings in light of some of the film’s later revelations. The film itself – solid, conventional, and potentially quite attractive to older filmgoers – is very lucky to have her.

Close stars as sixty-something Joan Castleman in this adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel. Set in 1992, we first see Joan in bed with her novelist husband, Joe (Jonathan Pryce), who is scarfing down sweets to compensate

Game of Thrones: Rhaegar and Viserys Targaryen Are Practically Twins

  • BuzzSugar
Game of Thrones fans were rewarded with a major payoff in the season seven finale when Samwell Tarly and Bran Stark get together, pool their respective knowledge, and discover that Jon Snow is the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. It is revealed via a flashback to their wedding, now that Bran Stark can conveniently have flashbacks about all people and all places now that he's the omniscient Three Eyed-Raven. In the flashback, you may have felt a sense of deja vu looking at Rhaegar, with his wavy, flowing blond tresses. That's because he's the spitting image of his brother, Viserys, who was a character on Game of Thrones in season one - which was actually by design on the part of the creators. "It was a little bit of a double take for everybody. (Laughs.) But they're meant to look similar!," director Jeremy Podeswa told The Hollywood Reporter of the resemblance.

'Game of Thrones': 7 Key Moments From "Beyond the Wall"

[Warning: this story contains spoilers for the sixth episode of Game of Thrones' seventh season, "Beyond the Wall."]

The dragon has three heads — and now, one of those heads is dead.

In "Beyond the Wall," the riveting penultimate installment of Game of Thrones season seven, we lost one of the longest-running characters in the series: Viserion, one of Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) three dragons, named after her late brother Viserys (Harry Lloyd). By all accounts, Viserion was far better and much more helpful than his namesake, providing both his mother and Thrones fans alike with countless reasons to celebrate over the seasons. Moving forward, Viserion will most certainly continue to leave...
