While it’s a pleasure to talk to Emilia Clarke, you just know there are certain things she can’t reveal — like what will happen on the seventh season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” that’s arriving in July, or anything about the plot of the Han Solo movie she is filming for Disney, which is set for a holiday release next year.

 

But she can deftly segue into discussing her career ambitions and the other films she’s in, such as “Voice From the Stone,” an indie she made two years ago that opens Friday.

 

“I first read the script five years ago, and I absolutely fell in love with it,” Clarke says. “I’m a sucker for a good script, because I’m an avid reader.”

 

Set in 1950s Tuscany, the film stars Clarke as a children’s nurse named Verena, who has been hired by Klaus (Marton Csokas), the artist father of a boy, Jakob (Edward Georg Dring), who hasn’t spoken since his mother died some seven months earlier.

 

So she moves in with the family at their eerie centuries-old castle. What the father didn’t tell her was that Jakob believes his mother speaks to him through the stone in the estate’s walls.

 

“I thought it had a Hitchcock-esque, ‘Rebecca’ quality to it that simmered,” Clarke says.

Good guys rarely win when playing the Game of Thrones, but perhaps they’re in for a reversal of fortune when winter resumes this summer.

 

At the very least, some forces of good are starting to align in brand-new photos from the seventh season of Game of Thrones. The photos, released Thursday by HBO, show Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) wearing new garb as they step into their respective roles as leaders — Jon being the King in the North, and Dany being the would-be Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. What’s more, Dany’s entire squad appears to be clad in similar attire, boasting a scale-like texture that resembles the ferocious dragons of House Targaryen.

 

Fashion updates aside, we’re really just at the tip of the iceberg as far as what’s revealed in the new photos. For instance, more Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) and Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) sharing screen time? And more Lyanna Mormont (Bella Ramsey), Lady of Bear Island? Nobody’s complaining about that.

 

As a reminder for people who haven’t checked in on Thrones since it ended its sixth season last summer, a quick refresher course: The denizens of the Seven Kingdoms are at a breaking point, especially the ones who live in King’s Landing. The season six finale featured Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) enacting explosive vengeance on her worst enemies, leveling the Sept of Baelor and burning untold innocents alive with wildfire, purely to destroy a select few. Cersei’s final child, King Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman), committed suicide shortly thereafter, leaving Cersei with a seat on the Iron Throne, and leaving her with the distinct taste of ash in her mouth.

EW – Though its yearly crop of nominees tends to skew more commercial than the Oscars’ or Golden Globes’, MTV’s annual Hollywood awards show has proven, once again, its finger is pressed firmly on the pulse of pop culture, recognizing a wealth of diversity across both film and television categories among its 2017 class.

 

For the first time in its 25-year history, the MTV Movie & TV Awards — previously known simply as the MTV Movie Awards — has expanded the scope of its categories to include titles like Netflix’s Stranger Things, NBC’s This Is Us, FX’s Atlanta, and VH1’s RuPaul’s Drag Race — each of which scored major notices among the ceremony’s inaugural set of TV honorees.

 

While television performers have been integrated into pre-existing categories like Best Villain (where the likes of — spoiler alert — Get Out star Allison Williams goes head-to-head with Demogorgon from Stranger Things), Best Comedic Performance, and Best Kiss, among others, several new brackets make their debut this year, including Show of the Year (Atlanta and Insecure square off against This Is Us, Game of Thrones, Pretty Little Liars, and Stranger Things), Best Host (LGBT icons RuPaul and Ellen DeGeneres vs. Samantha Bee, Trevor Noah, and John Oliver), and an individual television acting set that includes Donald Glover (Atlanta), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead), Mandy Moore (This Is Us), and Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things).

 

Also new for 2017 is the Next Generation award, which will be given to a breakout media star. Nominees include actress Chrissy Metz (This Is Us), actor Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Insecure writer-actress-creator Issa Rae, The Night Of star Riz Ahmed, and Blackish performer Yara Shahidi.
