‘Vikings’ Boss Explains the Show’s Latest Game-Changing Death and Character Loss

  • Variety
‘Vikings’ Boss Explains the Show’s Latest Game-Changing Death and Character Loss
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “Hell,” the Dec. 26 episode of “Vikings.”

When leading man Travis Fimmel exited the fourth season of History’s “Vikings,” his character, Ragnar Lothbrok, left behind five distinct sons who were ready to carry on his legacy, while the series also announced the addition of Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) as the passionate bishop warrior Heahmund.

The latter character, who was written by series creator Michael Hirst with Meyers in mind, made a quick impression with viewers. From his introduction as a Vikings adversary, to his alliance with Ivar (Alex Hogh Andersen) in taking over Kattegat, to his falling in love with Vikings queen Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) and bringing her back to Wessex, his journey impacted many of the show’s existing characters.

That made Heahmund’s unexpected demise in battle on Wednesday’s “Hell” episode of the series seem all the more sudden.

The best musical numbers in 21st century films

Catherine Pearson Jan 23, 2017

From School Of Rock and Enchanted through to Hail Caesar and Moana, we look at the unmissable musical numbers from modern movies...

The world has gone gaga for La La Land and it’s not difficult to see why. We love a good musical number. Sometimes there’s nothing more uplifting than a catchy tune with some fun choreography and other times music is the best, if only, way to depict a character's despair, fear or hope. Music taps into something very primal in us all and can often extract laughter and tears easier than two hours’ worth of dialogue.

Numerous classic musicals have graced the big screen since cinema began, but the 21st century alone has seen some fantastic songs in film. Some considered ‘musical films’ and others ‘films with music’, here are my top picks for this century’s best on-screen musical sequences.

The underrated film acting performances of 2016

Mark Harrison Jan 6, 2017

Viola Davis, John Goodman, Bryce Dallas Howard and more, in our rundown of 2016's underrated movie acting work.

This article contains minor spoilers for Pete's Dragon, Suicide Squad and Warcraft: The Beginning.

Nobody is likely to look back on 2016 fondly, whether because of global political instability, celebrity deaths or the rejection of Boaty McBoatface as a suitable name for a research vessel. In the world of film, we note that a lot of the contenders in this year's awards season haven't even been released in UK cinemas yet, and it was hardly a banner year for blockbuster cinema either.

On the plus side, there were some exemplary smaller films, of the kind that awards bodies tend to overlook, released in the last 12 months. Without any apparent genre contenders, like The Martian or Mad Max: Fury Road in 2015, this is a year in which performers are more likely

Flickering Myth’s Top Ten Movies of 2016

Flickering Myth’s writing team present our top ten movies of 2016…

As 2016 draws to a close and we ring in the New Year, Flickering Myth’s writers have been putting our collective heads together to vote on the best cinematic offerings from the past twelve months. As always, we’ve voted on our individual top ten favourites, with those lists then collated to give us an overall Top Ten Movies of 2016.

It’s probably worth noting that the likes of La La Land, Silence, Manchester By the Sea and Hacksaw Ridge haven’t opened in the UK yet. Had they, they may well have featured in our countdown – or in the case of one of those that did make the cut, it would likely have finished higher.

Directed by Tim Miller.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, Brianna Hildebrand, Gina Carano and T.J. Miller.

Fyc: Critics Choice Best Young Performer of 2016

Each year one of our awards traditions is to help fellow Bfca members choose more wisely when it comes to the "Young Performer" category by sharing an eligibility list. The lazy nominations each year prove that help is needed. Here's the thing: it can be difficult to even think of who is eligible when you're filling out a ballot because you don't get a list of choices and it's not a category people campaign for or one that the internet talks about. So we solve that problem right here. Our other belief, which is why we do this, is that if you actually pay attention there are enough worthy performances each year to divvy this category up into male and female as the other acting categories are divvied up. But, yes, you have to be paying attention beyond 5 or 6 movies and leading roles to notice the truly special work.

Shelf Life: John Carney outdoes his own previous best with 'Sing Street'
What is Shelf Life? I recently moved into a new apartment, which means I had to box my entire movie collection. Now I’m trying to figure out how much of my physical media actually fits here. Each and every title is now up for grabs, new or old, and it’s time to decide what goes on the shelf and what just plain goes. Title: Sing Street Year: 2016 Director: John Carney Screenwriter: John Carney Format: Blu-ray Purchased Or Sent: Sent What Is It? Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) is a young man in Dublin in the 1980s, and when he meets a girl worth impressing, the soon-to-be-a-model Raphina (Lucy Boynton), he starts a band with the express purpose of getting her to star in the music video. Random Thoughts: Holy cow, I missed this one. While it had a brief theatrical run, I consider it a major mistake to have missed the press screening.
