New ‘Prometheus’ International Trailer…and 7 Terrifying Screenshots

New ‘Prometheus’ International Trailer…and 7 Terrifying Screenshots

The international launch trailer for Prometheus is out, and it has 30 seconds of more footage (or is that “appendage”) than the U.S. trailer. I loved the U.S. trailer, which started out hopeful and turned our hope into fear faster than a leather egg can open. This new trailer isn’t as dramatic as the U.S. one, but it manages to outdo its American counterpart in one important way: it’s hella frightening.

‘Game of Thrones’ 2.05 Recap: One King Down, So Many More to Go

‘Game of Thrones’ 2.05 Recap: One King Down, So Many More to Go

I’m not giving away too much with my title, when you consider just how many characters in Game of Thrones are vying for the Iron Throne, a spiky piece of furniture currently held by Joffrey Baratheon. There’s Stannis, the elder Baratheon; Renly, the younger Baratheon; Robb Stark, King of the North. Theon Greyjoy’s dad, Balon, is on the verge of making a play for his old title, King of the Iron Islands. We’re going to be meeting Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, soon enough. That’s a lot of damned kings, and I’m not evening counting Daenerys, who’s been hatching plans for conquest ever since she’s hatched her dragons.

‘Game of Thrones’ 2.04 Recap: Torture and Beatings and Joffrey, Oh My

‘Game of Thrones’ 2.04 Recap: Torture and Beatings and Joffrey, Oh My

My husband said, “I want to wind down on a Sunday evening, not wind up.” But peace of mind was not to be had in our household after watching the Game of Thrones episode, “Garden of Bones.” Too much torture, too many threats, too much unsexy sexuality, not to mention two scenes featuring Joffrey, in neither of which he gets slapped. Plus, both scenes devolve into a sexual cruelty that would make the Marquis de Sade cringe.
