EGP Website Article Image 93

When the 2015 Doctor Who Christmas Special airs on Christmas Day we will truly be in festive season, and now we have something else to look forward to in the special!

The BBC have officially announced that Alex Kingston will be reprising her role of River Song for this year’s Christmas Special. This will bring River’s total number of appearances to 16 episodes. Kingston had the following to say on the news:

“To be honest, I did not know whether River would ever return to the show, but here she is, back with the Doctor for the Christmas special. Steven Moffat is on glittering form, giving us an episode filled with humour and surprise guest castings. I met Peter for the first time at Monday’s read through, we had a laugh, and I am now excited and ready to start filming with him and the Doctor Who team. Christmas in September? Why not!”

A description of the special reads:

“It’s Christmas Day in the future and the TARDIS is parked on a snowy village street, covered in icicles, awaiting its next adventure. Time traveller River Song meets her husband’s new incarnation, in the form of Peter Capaldi, for the first time this Christmas.”

The first episode of Doctor Who Series 9 airs on September 19th.

Game of Thrones- Pilou Asbaek Reportedly Cast as Euron Greyjoy

EGP Website Article Image 92

The sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones may be a long way off, but casting announcements have been coming in recently and now we reportedly have another one.

Pilou Asbaek, best-known for his roles as Kasper Juul in Borgen, Mikkel Hartmann in A Hijacking and Richard in Lucy, has reportedly been cast as Euron Greyjoy in the popular TV show.

Pilou was reportedly seen filming with other cast members at Ballintoy Harbour in Northern Ireland which led to the report of him being cast as Euron Greyjoy.

For anyone unfamiliar with the character some details are included below, however be very wary of SPOILERS:

………………………………

 

……………………..

“It seems that the Greyjoy subplot that was left by the wayside last season is picking up again in Season 6. Euron appears in the fourth book in the series, A Feast for Crows, after Lord Balon Greyjoy dies. Balon is rumored to finally perish in Season 6, which leads to the scene Asbæk was supposedly caught filming.

 

The scene being filmed may have been the Kingsmoot that takes place after Balon’s death. Yara was there, as was a crowd of spectators who cheered for Euron. This all fits into the context of the Kingsmoot. There was also a character who appeared to be the Drowned Priest Aeron, but no word on the actor playing him. The only thing missing from the scene was Victarion Greyjoy.”

Game of Thrones Season 6 will begin airing in 2016.

Thoughts on this report? Are you excited to see Pilou Asbaek as Euron Greyjoy?

Rumour- Gina Rodriguez, Tatiana Maslany and Olivia Cooke Short Listed for a Lead Role in Star Wars Episode VIII

EGP Website Article Image 90EGP Website Article Image 91

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens may just be months away at this point, but rumours are now already coming out surrounding Episode VIII. The latest rumour hints at three actresses that are being considered by Lucasfilm and Disney, any of whom could end up playing a new female lead in Star Wars Episode VIII.

The actresses in question are Gina Rodriguez (Jane Villanueva in Jane the Virgin and Beverly in The Bold and the Beautiful), Tatiana Maslany (Sarah Manning, Cosima Niehaus and Alison Hendrix in Orphan Black, Kit Bailey in Heartland and Mary Dexter in Diary of the Dead) and Olivia Cooke (Emma Decody in Bates Motel) .

Interesting to note is that Tatiana Maslany was previously on the shortlist for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first of the spin-off films which will be released next year. Maybe the fact that she’s on a Star Wars short-list again is an indication that Lucasfilm and Disney liked her before and increases her chances of being cast in a Star Wars film?

The three mentioned actresses (and possibly others) are reportedly going to have a chemistry read with John Boyega, Finn in The Force Awakens, sometime this month.

Thoughts on this rumour? Would you like to see Gina, Tatiana and/or Olivia in a Star Wars film?

EGP Website Article Image 73

The new take on the popular Star Wars: Battlefront video games is coming very soon and now fans know when they’ll first get the chance to play the game.

Electronic Arts (EA) have announced that a beta for Battlefront will be available to play in early October on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

An official statement from EA reads:

Coming early October to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC, the Star Wars Battlefront Beta is a technical test and will feature Walker Assault on Hoth, a 40-player multiplayer battle featuring Rebels and the Empire. Walker Assault will also give you the chance to play as two of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. The Beta will also feature our Survival Mission on Tatooine, where you and a Rebel friend must fight back waves of Imperial forces.

In addition to those two modes, we are excited to reveal a brand-new mode that will be available in the Beta, Drop Zone. We’ll be sharing more details on Drop Zone in the weeks ahead.

As part of the Star Wars Battlefront Beta we are also happy to reveal the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience. Available during the Beta at www.StarWarsBattlefront.com, the Star Wars Battlefront Companion experience features the strategic card game Base Command, and lets you earn in-game Credits that unlock Star Cards, weapons, and more in Star Wars Battlefront. In addition to Base Command, the Companion also lets Rebels and Imperials alike check game stats and progression, customize load-outs and appearance, connect with friends, and get notified when they’re playing Star Wars Battlefront – as well as gather intel on their stats and progression so you can see how you match up! The Star Wars Battlefront Companion will be available on web and in the Apple App Store™ and Google Play™ store prior to the release of Star Wars Battlefront on November 17.

The full game will be released on November 17th, one month and day before the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

EGP Website Article Image 72EGP Website Article Image 71

We’re getting very close to Force Friday (which takes place on September 4th and provides the first chance for collectors to pick up merchandise from the highly anticipated Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens) and as a result leaks have been coming recently. Some of these leaks have even revealed new characters from The Force Awakens that we hadn’t heard about before. This latest leak is no different.

Two new Hasbro figures have been revealed. The characters are called Sarco Plank and X-Wing Pilot Asty. Pictures of both figures can be found above the first paragraph.

This is actually not the first time we’ve seen either character (just the first time their name has been confirmed). Asty was previously shown in a behind-the-scenes photo and Sarco Plank was shown in photos from Vanity Fair months ago.

Thoughts on the figures? Will you be buying them and are you excited to see the characters in The Force Awakens?
