Game Of Thrones There should have been a reunion with a character from the main series in the prequel

“Game Of Thrones”: There should have been a reunion with a character from the main series in the prequel

The “GoT” offshoot “The Long Night” should have played thousands of years before the plot of the mother series – and yet we FMOVIES have seen a well-known character! In the meantime, however, the series has been crushed, instead comes “House Of The Dragon”.

The development of the new “Game Of Thrones” series “House Of The Dragon” has only just started and the casting process has now started, and we get some information about what could have been. Because while “House Of The Dragon” is coming, another prequel series for “Game Of Thrones” has been canceled: “The Long Night” or “Bloodmoon”. The project operated under these titles, but the series never got a real title.

A pilot film for “The Long Night” was even shot and every “Game Of Thrones” fan should be hot for information about it, similar to the first pilot for “Game Of Thrones” itself, which was never broadcast.

The website Redanian Intelligence, which specializes in fantasy fabrics, now has some new information about “The Long Night”:

Leaf from “Game Of Thrones”

“The Long Night” would have gone thousands of years into the past, after all, the real origin of the White Walkers should be shown (which we really would have liked to see!). 8000 years before “Game Of Thrones” probably none of the people from the mother series lived – but in the world of “GoT” there are not only people.

So the Children Of The Forest (in German: Kinder des Waldes) would have played a role, including Leaf, which we have already seen in “Game Of Thrones”. In “GoT” the ancient mythical being was first played by Octavia Alexandru, and later by Kae Alexander. In “The Long Night” Doyin Ajiboye would have slipped into this role. Instead of a guest role like in “GoT” it would have been a regular role in the prequel.

So the Children Of The Forest (in German: Kinder des Waldes) would have played a role, including Leaf, which we have already seen in “Game Of Thrones”.

The names and actors of two other Children Of The Forest are now known: Cloud (Seyi Andes-Pelumi) and Lake (Felicia Mukasa).

Naomi Watts ‘daughter and twins

The character of Naomi Watts, who would have taken on the female lead as a “charismatic lady of society with a dark secret”, would have had a daughter who would also have played a prominent role: Aurelia (Amy McPherson). Since family conflicts and secrets play a major role in the world of “Game Of Thrones”, the relationship between the two should have been exciting.

Since family conflicts and secrets play a major role in the world of “Game Of Thrones”, the relationship between the two should have been exciting.

A pair of twins should have played an important part. In the meantime, triplets were probably looked for, but in the end they decided on twins. The characters should be called Caera and Vera, and Leah and Mhairi Gayer were hired as actresses. Redanian Intelligence suspects a Valyrian origin of the two because of the “ae” in Caera’s name.

100 kingdoms, at least one princess

In “Game Of Thrones” there are seven kingdoms, in “The Long Night” there would have been about a hundred – Westeros looked completely different at that time. The nobility would also have played a role in the prequel, at least one princess should have played a role – however, the name and actress are not known, only the name of the double. Gabriella Morales is a young girl, so either the princess would have been important as a child or her royal parents.

at least one princess should have played a part

Unfortunately, it has not yet been revealed how the Stark family would have been involved in the story and who exactly from this family would have been seen. That the Starks were to play a role was among the little information that was officially revealed about the plot.

At least we can expect the first actor names for the already officially ordered first season of “House Of The Dragon” shortly. We are excited!

Long before Netflix Starting today the 5th season of Outlander will be on free TV for free

Long before Netflix: Starting today, the 5th season of “Outlander” will be on free TV for free

The wait for the fifth season of “Outlander” is over – at least for everyone who doesn’t just have streaming subscriptions and pay TV channels. The new episodes of the popular fantasy series are coming on TV!

Waiting for new seasons has a long tradition for “Outlander” fans – at least if they live in Germany and prefer YesMovies watch their favorite series in German. Netflix customers in particular are only being supplied with supplies slowly and have to be patient.

The streaming service currently only offers season four, although the fifth season in the USA and in this country has long been shown on RTL Passion on pay TV. The latest episodes can of course also be bought on Amazon as VoD *.

But today we have good news for all fans who don’t feel like subscriptions and pay-TV channels: From July 22nd, 2020, the fifth season of “Outlander” will be broadcast on VOX – for free on free TV. Two episodes are to be broadcast every Wednesday from 8:15 p.m., which means six weeks of series with 12 episodes.

The fifth season of “Outlander” will run on VOX from July 22, 2020 – for free on free TV

Season 5 could then be on Netflix

So far there is no official date for the fifth season of “Outlander” on Netflix. Experience has shown that the new episodes land on the streaming platform a year after the free TV premiere. That would currently mean that Netflix customers can expect supplies in the summer of 2021.

If things go faster this time and “Outlander” lands on Netflix before next summer, we will of course inform you in good time.

Even many films that have been around for a few years now often cost 3.99 euros on streaming platforms like Amazon Prime Video * if you want to rent them. In many cases it is worthwhile to spend a few euros on top and have the Blu-ray on the shelf – which is always available there when you want. Apart from the fact that many cult films and classics are currently not available digitally anywhere for licensing reasons.

So if your collection still has some cult film gaps anyway, the new Amazon promotion may be worthwhile, with which you can get loads of masterpieces and classics for a fiver – as long as you can find at least six films (from a selection of almost 250 films) you must have:

6 Blu-rays for 30 euros *

Further actions

You can also get “4 Blu-rays for 30 euros” and “4 DVDs for 20 euros” on Amazon until July 26th. In comparison, you get a bit more expensive than with the “6 Blu-rays for 30 euros”, but you also get a larger selection, including more recent titles such as “Pokémon master detective Pikachu”, “Shazam! “And” Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters “romp about:

After Tenet has been postponed New Germany start date revealed [UPDATE]

After “Tenet” has been postponed: New Germany start date revealed [UPDATE]

The question of when “Tenet” will be in the cinema is now just as exciting as the question of what exactly Christopher Nolan’s new film is about. Now there are possible new start dates for the US and the rest of the world.

It had already been suggested: After “Tenet” had already been postponed twice, everything now indicates that the current start date on August 12, 2020 will not work either.

In the USA, the unusual, worldwide parallel Wednesday start date was canceled on July 20, 2020 and no new date was announced for the time being. In Germany, August 12th is still valid, but it can be assumed that it will not stay that way.

The entertainment business journalist Steven Zeitchik of the Washington Post now writes on Twitter. According to his sources, Warner is currently aiming to bring “Tenet” to cinemas outside of the USA on August 26, 2020 and in the USA on Labor Day weekend (September 4 to 7, 2020).

Warner is currently aiming to bring “Tenet” to cinemas outside the USA on August 26, 2020 and in the USA on Labor Day weekend (September 4 to 7, 2020).

Since August 26th is a Wednesday, a start in Germany on August 27th would also be possible, however, as described above, the previous date was also a Wednesday.

UPDATE from July 22, 2020: We heard from cinema circles that the start of Germany is actually planned for August 27, 2020.

UPDATE July 22, 2020:

This is WB’s thinking / questions regarding now vs later: 1) Is Thanksgiving or Christmas going to be a significantly more virus-safe time than Labor Day to put a movie in theaters? 2) Will there be enough theaters left in 2021 to put a movie in theaters? – Steven Zeitchik (@zeitchikWaPo) July 21, 2020

This is WB’s thinking / questions regarding now vs later: 1) Is Thanksgiving or Christmas going to be a significantly more virus-safe time than Labor Day to put a movie in theaters? 2) Will there be enough theaters left in 2021 to put a movie in theaters?

Why not postpone it after 2021?

In another tweet, Zeitchik also explained the considerations behind the new dates. A legitimate question is, for example, why “Tenet” is not simply postponed to the end of 2020 or sometime in 2021, as has already been done with numerous other large and medium-sized films .

Warner is evidently concerned with two main questions:

Warner is evidently concerned with two main questions:

1. Will the corona situation (worldwide, but especially in 9MOVIES USA) have relaxed significantly more on Thanksgiving (November 26, 2020) or Christmas? So is it safer then to bring a film to the cinema?

2. Will there still be enough cinemas in 2021 to bring a film to the cinema?

The implied answer to both of these questions is “no” – or at least the answer that Warner came up with. Apparently, it seems at least to be expected that the pandemic in the USA will not really be under control even at the end of 2020.

And at the same time there is fear that the long time without big blockbusters (and therefore also without viewers) will bring many cinema operators to their knees and next year there may not be enough cinemas left to make a $ 200 million film like “Tenet” to start profitably.

Cursed Thats why a second season of the Netflix series is so likely

“Cursed”: That’s why a second season of the Netflix series is so likely

Anyone who loves fantasy series like “Game Of Thrones” and “The Witcher” should have been quite happy about the new Netflix series “Cursed”. We’ll tell you now why a second season is very likely.

The Netflix series “Cursed – The Chosen One” is currently on everyone’s lips and dominates the top 10 of the streaming service. Ten episodes of the fantasy adventure have been available for download since July 17, 2020 and the adventures of Nimue (Katherine Langford), Arthur (Devon Terrell) and the magician Merlin (Gustaf Skarsgård) have already found numerous fans.

Anyone who has already seen the series finale, of course, inevitably raises the question of how and whether the story will be passed on. Will there be a second season? We have found reasons that speak for it.

Will there be a second season? We have found reasons that speak for it

So far, Netflix has not yet officially commented on further episodes of “Cursed”, after all, the series has not been running long. Above all, the end of the first season speaks definitely for a sequel …

The end of “Cursed” is just the beginning

The stuff “Cursed” is made of is anything but new. The Arthurian legend, which is closely interwoven with the stories about the magician Merlin and the sword Excalibur, is one of the most important mythologies of Britain, goes back to the 9th century of literary history and is still reinterpreted to this day – both in books, as well as in films and series.

The “Cursed” series also contains some elements of the ancient saga, although it is based on the modern illustrated novel by Tom Wheeler and “300” creator Frank Miller *. In fact, there is still no sequel to the book – a second season of the series is still not unlikely.

What happened to Nimue in “Cursed”?

Warning, spoilers at the end of “Cursed”!

Warning, spoilers at the end of “Cursed”!

At the end of the first season, everything looks like the young heroine Nimue, who, together with Arthur, brings a precious sword to the magician Merlin, is dying. Pierced by arrows, she falls into a river. A cliffhanger that should shock the fans.

Anyone familiar with the Arthurian legend knows that Nimue will most likely not die – she still has some big tasks ahead of her. In many other books and films, Nimue is known as the “Mistress of the Lake” and occupies a central position in further mythology. In the famous novel “The Mists of Avalon” by Marion Zimmer Bradley, for example, it is an important part of the story.

So that Nimue will be resurrected in the second season of “Cursed” is quite likely.

Who is the Weeping Monk?

Without question, the revelation of the true identity of the monk (Daniel Sharman) with the bloody tears on his face is the biggest twist at the end FMovie the first season of “Cursed”. The shady character is Lancelot, who is of course an integral part of many Arthurian stories.

Lancelot’s other story alone could fill a second season of “Cursed”. In the last few episodes, the Weeping Monk develops into a hero who, however, has to make amends for some atrocities. In other versions of the Arthurian legend, Lancelot is Arthur’s best friend, Guinevere’s lover and always on the lookout for the Holy Grail.

Nimue’s future, Lancelot’s development, and a few other open narrative threads in “Cursed” strongly suggest that a second season of the Netflix series is likely. As soon as we know more about it, we will of course inform you about it.

New on DVD

New on DVD

We had to wait seven years for the new animated XMOVIES8 by the “Monster Uni” maker – and then “Onward: No half measures” disappeared from the cinemas after a short time due to Corona. Now the film is finally available on DVD and Blu-ray.

Pixar has produced 22 films since its cinema debut in 1995 (“Toy Story”) – you can currently find 21 of them on Disney *. For the time being, however, you won’t find the latest animated film from the family-friendly hit maker on the mouse company’s own streaming platform.

Trailer for “Soul”: This is the next Pixar movie

“Onward: No half measures” was released in German cinemas on March 5, 2020, shortly before the corona pandemic caused the cinemas to be generally closed. Disney responded and released the fantasy fun early on May 22 as video-on-demand *. Those who prefer to have their films on the shelf will also be served from today:

“Onward” on DVD, Blu-ray

“Onward” on DVD, Blu-ray

This is “Onward: No half measures”

The world used to be full of magic. But with increasing technological progress, it disappeared more and more from our everyday life. When the two elf brothers Ian (voice in the original: Tom Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (Chris Pratt) finally have their 16th birthday behind them, the magic is about to return to the Lightfoot household.

The mother of the two (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) gives the boys a gift from their dead father (Kyle Bornheimer) – a mysterious stick with which the brothers can bring their father back to the realm of the living for a day. But the magic goes wrong, and so the two suddenly stand with their father’s lower body …

Animation fun also in 3D

While it should only be a matter of time before “Onward” lands on Disney (with “Toy Story 4” it took almost eight months), the streaming platform only serves those Disney fans who 2D is sufficient. But the 3D fans have also been thought of:

And it is not entirely natural that Disney will release “Onward” on 3D Blu-ray. Because even if the trend of three-dimensional images is on the decline again, the 3D adventures still have a loyal following. While Disney recently only released selected 3D films for home theater in 2D (“Chaos on the Net”, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”), fans of the third dimension will get their money’s worth with “Onward”.

And it is not entirely natural that Disney will release “Onward” on 3D Blu-ray.

New on Disney: An expensive fairy tale blockbuster that justifiably flopped in the cinema

New films on Disney Plus are still rather rare in direct comparison with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. But the streaming service isn’t doing its subscribers a favor with this early Christmas present.

— opinion —

— opinion —

Two capable directors, one after the other, bit their teeth on the subject – and put the 130 million dollar fairy tale blockbuster “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” in the snow despite the all-star cast …

First, arthouse star director Lasse Hallström (“Gilbert Grape”, “Chocolat”) tried to make the real version of the famous ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, which in turn was based on the short story “Nutcracker and Mouse King” by E.T.A. Hoffmann based. The blockbuster experienced Joe Johnston then took over the extensive re-shoots – but even the “Captain America – The First Avenger” director couldn’t save much.

Christmas in midsummer

Everything about “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” screams for winter and Christmas (hence the cinema release in November 2018). On Disney, on the other hand, the film will now be released in midsummer – but maybe that’s not so bad, because you can maybe 123movies cool off a little with the shivering snowy landscapes. The only problem is: the fairy tale leaves its audience absolutely cold, even outside the winter setting!

The fairy tale leaves its audience absolutely cold, even outside of the winter setting!

The 1.5-star review by says: “A genre monotony that is just as arbitrary as it is loveless, which for the most part simply recycles cliché elements from other fantasy films such as ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ and yet not touching them or even just a coherent narrative. ”It’s a shame about superstars like Morgan Freeman as the wise godfather Drosselmeyer, Keira Knightley as the crazy sugar fairy or Helen Mirren as the tyrannical mother Gigeon.

The 1.5-star review by says:

Kitsch fans get their money’s worth

As a narrative, “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”, in which Clara (Mackenzie Foy) suddenly lands in a fantasy world consisting of four realms while chasing a mouse on Christmas Eve, is a big disappointment. But where there was no messing about, there was the equipment: Those who just can’t get enough of the kitschy Christmas decorations in winter Disney World will get their money’s worth here too.

But where there was padding and not spilling, the equipment is:

So our criticism closes with the statement: “Anyone who likes Disney’s artificial understanding of a perfect Christmas can indulge in the pompous and sugar-sweet backdrops and costumes for 100 minutes without being distracted by something like a plot in between become.”

Previously unthinkable Cult horror shocker appears uncut – in a spectacular edition

Previously unthinkable: Cult horror shocker appears uncut – in a spectacular edition

Once indicated for its toughness, for a long time it was difficult to get hold of “Maniac” in Germany. In 2020, the genre classic received its FSK 18 approval. Now the official German Uncut home cinema evaluation follows – and what a!

William Lustig’s “Maniac” is one of the great horror classics of the 80s, but has also been discussed controversially since then – because the slasher shocker sometimes gets really tough. As a result, the film not only landed on the index in Germany, but was later even confiscated. Anyone who wanted the uncut version had to resort to imports for a long time (e.g. from Austria).

In the course of the re-examination at the beginning of 2020, the uncut version of “Maniac” RAINIERLAND released from the age of 18. The film can finally be openly advertised and sold in this country. And to celebrate, fans can now look forward to a very special evaluation in the home theater – three new editions are coming up:

In the course of the re-examination at the beginning of 2020, the uncut version of “Maniac” was released from the age of 18

“Maniac” – Ultimate Collector’s Edition *

“Maniac” – Ultimate Collector’s Edition *

“Maniac” – Limited Vintage Edition *

“Maniac” – Limited Vintage Edition *

“Maniac” in 4K *

“Maniac” in 4K *

“Maniac” uncut from 18: these are the editions

After the film has already been evaluated in numerous German-language special editions in recent years – including various Mediabook versions and as a bust edition – the official German uncut release with the FSK 18 seal is now following. But be careful when buying: The 18-edition *, which has been available for a long time, is cut!

Ultimate Collector’s Edition: As the name suggests, this is the ultimate edition, which is also the most expensive at 159.99 euros (available exclusively from Amazon.de). On the total of six discs you will find the film on 4K Blu-ray and Blu-ray and the soundtrack, on top of which there is a t-shirt, an exclusive booklet (in the media book) and a limited certificate. The highlight of the limited edition of 500 pieces is a 32cm high model that is based on the legendary poster for the film.

Ultimate Collector’s Edition:

Limited Vintage Edition: The slightly slimmed-down version only contains five discs, so there is no soundtrack or the 4K version – but there is plenty of bonus material here too. Without a model, this edition definitely takes up less space on the shelf, for 52.99 euros you can also get a digipack instead of the mediabook.

Limited Vintage Edition:

4K Blu-ray: If you don’t need all that stuff and just want to experience “Maniac” in the best possible quality, you can also get the film for the first time in an inexpensive standard 4K edition.

4K Blu-ray:

October 1, 2020 is specified as the release date of the two slimmer versions. Whether the strictly limited edition with figure will appear at the same time or later remains to be seen – currently December 31, 2020 is cited as a placeholder.

Skyline 3 is coming This is how it continues after Skyline and Beyond Skyline

“Skyline 3” is coming: This is how it continues after “Skyline” and “Beyond Skyline”

“Skyline – The Day of the Attack” and “Beyond Skyline” will run on July 24, 2020 from 10 p.m. on RTL 2. If you ask yourself afterwards (or before) how things will proceed: Here you will find all the information you know about “Skyline 3” aka “Skylines”.

Warning, spoilers for “Skyline” and “Beyond Skyline” LOSMOVIES follow!

Warning, spoilers for “Skyline” and “Beyond Skyline” will follow!

In “Skyline – The Day of the Attack” from 2010, humanity was primarily about survival. Anyone who has seen the film knows, however, that the struggle for survival of Jarrod (Eric Balfour), Elaine (Scottie Thompson) and Co. against the overpowering alien attackers was not really crowned with success.

However, in the second part “Beyond Skyline”, which takes place parallel to the first part, humanity begins to strike back:

After an alien spaceship with Mark (Frank Grillo), Audrey (Bojana Novakovic) and the newborn baby of Jarrod and Elaine on board is damaged and crashes in Laos, the Americans join a group of local resistance fighters around the chief (Yayan Ruhian) and Sua (Iko Uwais), who attack the aliens with firearms and martial arts.

“Skyline 3” = “Skylines”

The epilogue (and prologue) of “Beyond Skyline”, played again ten years later, gives an insight into how the struggle of the surviving humans against the aliens is developing: Here we see Rose, who was born on the alien spaceship, as an adult woman and captain of a spaceship (Lindsey Morgan), with which you can now fight the aliens on an equal footing.

And in fact, it should continue with this storyline in the already confirmed “Skyline 3”, which will bear the title “Skylines” or “Skylin3s”.

The plot of “Skylines”

The new main character is Captain Rose, who due to the extraordinary circumstances of her birth not only grows much faster than normal, but apparently also has other extraterrestrial superpowers.

But the fight against the alien invaders is not going as planned: The bio-mechanical drones, which were actually converted in the finale of “Beyond Skyline” with the help of the red light, are again threatened by a virus in “Skylines”.

To destroy the aliens once and for all and to save humanity, Rose puts together a team of mercenaries to travel to the alien homeworld.

According to the information available so far about the cast, neither Mark played by Frank Grillo nor Sua played by “The Raid” star Iko Uwais are part of this team. Instead, Yayan Ruhian, who is also known from the “The Raid” films, is there again, albeit in a new role, as his character was torn to pieces by the aliens.

“Skylines” should appear in 2020 or 2021, but there is no exact start date yet. But a first poster:

The King Of Queens as a neo-Nazi with a swastika tattoo This star was originally supposed to play the role in Becky

The “King Of Queens” as a neo-Nazi with a swastika tattoo: This star was originally supposed to play the role in “Becky”!

In “Becky” sitcom superstar Kevin James alludes radically against his usual image as the epitome of the average guy – among other things with a huge swastika on the back of his head. But actually everything should have turned out very differently …

You immediately understand what made Kevin James (“Hitch – The Date Doctor”, “Pixels”) join in on “Becky”: After more than two decades in which he achieved almost exclusively successes with roles as a likeable buddy type, The “King Of Queens” star finally got the chance to break out of his role-drawer and try something completely different.

The “King Of Queens” star finally got the chance to break out of his role drawer and try something completely different.

After all, Kevin James plays the nefarious leader of a neo-Nazi group that doesn’t shy away from child murder on its mission – and finally takes on the defensive 13-year-old Becky (Lulu Wilson), which ends in an astonishingly bloody argument: In one scene James has to cut the optic nerve of his eye that has been torn from its socket – with blunt purple craft scissors.

All just coincidence

But as logical as this story may sound – it’s not true: Kevin James didn’t even join the film to play the Nazi role, as he now said in an interview with Newsday (via Cinema Blend) about the US Start of “Becky” revealed. Instead, he should actually embody a completely different role falling into his usual character scheme:

Kevin James didn’t even join the film to play the Nazi role,

“Many can identify with me as an average guy. But if you do that over and over, the following happens: Half of the audience always wants more of it, while the other half says: ‘I already know that. He should do something different. “

“I was also excited about the script for ‘Becky’, it was something completely different. Originally, I was supposed to play Becky’s father and Simon Pegg the villain. But then there were scheduling problems on Simon’s side. So they had to fill the role again. We asked ourselves what if I did the part? And then I just did it. “

Originally I was supposed to play Becky’s father and Simon Pegg the villain

“Becky” will be screened at the Fantasy Filmfest this fall – with Kevin James and not Simon Pegg (“Shaun Of The Dead”) as the deeply evil psycho-Nazi. In addition, it has not yet been determined when the film will start in theaters in Germany or appear directly CMoviesHD DVD / Blu-ray.
