Sometimes you have to be a little nerdy to fully understand HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Or at least understand it more deeply than the average viewer. If Season 2 ended with the well-titled episode “Valar Morghulis" meaning, “all men must die,” in Season 3 we begin with the less ominous and more appropriate "Valar Dohaeris" -- “all men must serve.” As fans of Westeros should know, Season 3 falls roughly within the first half of “A Storm of Swords,” the third of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels by George R. R. Martin.

From the lands of Westeros to 79 A.D. Italy? We don't think that transition will be too difficult for "Game Of Thrones" star Kit Harington. The actor is slowly but surely beginning to make inroads on the big screen, starring in "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D" (you gotta start somewhere), and he has a role in the upcoming "The Seventh Son" where he'll co-star alongside Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore. He was attached to "Arthur & Lancelot" before it fell apart, but he's dusted himself off with what is going to be his biggest effort yet.

Review: ‘Silent Hill: Revelation’ A Silly, Artless & Depressing Sequel

The problem with movies based on video games (or movies that try to capture the video game experience) is that they always come across like watching someone else play a video game. These movies might have budget-pushing effects and plotlines that mimic the follow-the-clues narrative of most games, but they never succeed in bringing the viewer into a fantastical, wholly imagined world in quite the same way. “Silent Hill: Revelation,” based on a series of Japanese horror survival games about a spooky town filled with ghostly apparitions, is one step worse than most of these video game movies. It feels less like a game and more like what happens when you leave your PlayStation on and it becomes a kind of dim screensaver. If we had a controller in our hand, we would probably throw it at the screen.

With “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D,” filmgoers are about to learn what TV fans have known for quite awhile now about “Games Of Thrones” actor Kit Harington. As the smoldering Jon Snow, Harington has earned himself quite the fan base, so few would be surprised to know that he’s hoping to branch out into film in a major way.

Amber Heard is in talks to join the thriller “Paranoia” as the female lead opposite everyone’s second favourite Hemsworth (well, except for Miley Cyrus we guess), Liam. The prolific director of “Killers,” “The Ugly Truth,” “Monster-in-Law” and “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!,” Robert Luketic, is the man behind the camera, and Heard joins a cast which impressively already includes Gary Oldman, Harrison Ford, Lucas Till and "Nip/Tuck" star Julian McMahon. Heard most recently starred opposite Johnny Depp in “The Rum Diary” and may be remembered by many for looking pretty in the likes of “Drive Angry,” “The Ward,” and “The Joneses.” This will finally give her a chance to act rather than be little more than an accessory, as she will play Hemsworth's love interest who happens to be his ticket to spying into a rival firm in the corporate thriller.

The end is nigh! The currently shooting "The Bitter Pill," starring Channing Tatum and Rooney Mara, marks Steven Soderbergh's penultimate feature film, after which the curtains will close with his long-gestating Liberace biopic "Behind The Candelabra," which films this summer. The latter has now began filling out its cast, with Dan Aykroyd jumping on board to play the famed entertainer's long-term manager, Seymour Heller.

With "Harry Potter" wrapped up, and the final "Twilight" film only nine months away, Hollywood's search for a new teen-friendly franchise is starting to become a matter of urgency. So far attempts to mine other young adult novels have been unsatisfactory both commercially and creatively (see: "I Am Number Four"), and many of the films launched into development, projects like potential Taylor Lautner vehicle "Incarceron," Screen Gems' "The Mortal Instruments," Jonathan Levine's "Legend" and Warner Bros' "The Scorpio Races," have thus far failed to get off the ground.

Warner Bros. Adding 'Arthur & Lancelot' To The Chopping Block, Urging Director David Dobkin To Take It To Another Studio

With the year winding down, it looks like executives at Warner Bros. have been looking at the year ahead and wondering WTF have they greenlit. Just yesterday word arrived that they were putting Alex Proyas' expensive, 3D, motion-capture adaptation of "Paradise Lost" on hold to get the budget and script under control. And now, another high profile movie may be getting the axe altogether.

King Arthur: a prestigious part to play, but not always the most fun. Played over the years by names as diverse as Richard Harris, Nigel Terry, Malcolm McDowell, Sean Connery, John Gielgud, Pierce Brosnan, Clive Owen, Justin Timberlake, and Monty Python's Graham Chapman, few of those names have truly made an impression in the part. Despite his legendary status, he can often come across as... well, kind of dull. Hopefully "Wedding Crashers" director David Dobkin has found a way to make it a little more interesting for his new version of the tale, "Arthur & Lancelot," which is gearing up over at Warner Bros, but he's certainly got some promising names in the mix.
