‘Game of Thrones’ stars Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa to star in new film together
Although the two most charismatic characters Tyrion Lannister and Khal Drogo did not meet in the Game of Thrones series in all seasons (after all, Drogo died at the beginning), the performers of these roles, Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa, got the opportunity to work together again and finally – then meet in the frame. And this duet promises to be exciting!
The actors will play the lead roles in the comedy horror Good Bad & Undead about the adventures of Van Helsing and the vampire, and will also produce the picture.
Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa in Game of Thrones
Van Helsing (Dinklage) is the last representative of the legendary family of vampire hunters, but somehow he does not want to exterminate the undead, and instead he makes a deal with another equally restless vampire (Momoa): they decide to help each other and earn. Together they begin to travel around the cities and cheat the locals: the vampire "attacks" people, and Van Helsing "kills" him – the generous payment of the grateful population is divided equally. However, problems soon begin: a large amount is assigned for the head of a vampire, and people and monsters open the hunt for him.
The script was written by Mark Swift and Damian Shannon (Friday the 13th, 2009) and directed by Max Barbakov (Palm Springs). According to the creators, the film will combine elements of the crime thriller Midnight Run and Dracula films.
Charlize Theron as Immortal Hitman
The network has the first trailer for the next Netflix project – the action movie The Old Guard about a team of warriors who are granted immortality. Eternal life has long been a burden for them, and an ongoing millennium-long war is a routine.

Along with it comes problems.
In addition to Theron, the film also starred Kiki Lane, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Harry Melling and others. Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life of Bees).

David Lynch releases short film ‘Fire’
Director David Lynch now not only talks about the weather on his "quarantine" YouTube channel David Lynch Theater, but also shares new works: the other day he presented his short animated film Fire ("Fire").
The tape was created back in 2015, but before it could only be seen at the director’s exhibitions, now for the first time the short film is available to everyone.
The director personally wrote, drew and staged the 10-minute project: Lynch is an artist by his first education, and animation in one form or another is often present in his works. He was assisted by Noriko Miyakawa on this animation project. The music for the film was written by Polish composer Marek Zhebrowski, with whom Lynch released the album Polish Night Music in 2007.
The black-and-white film has no words and no plot as such: strange figures dance against the backdrop of gloomy landscapes, fire burns… All together, this creates a frightening impression – something that so often appears in other works of the author of the cult Twin Peaks.
