Rami Malek just completely redefined Queen for us with the unveiling of his first looks as Freddie Mercury for the legendary singer’s biopic. The ‘Mr Robot’ actor looks like an exact replica of Mercury, complete with his signature styled vest and the moustache as well as the attitude he embodies. Freddie Mercury becomes him. 

Exclusive: @ItsRamiMalek is #FreddieMercury in this ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ first look:

— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) September 5, 2017

The photos that were released yesterday on Entertainment Weekly coincide with Mercury’s birthday and pay the perfect homage to the late legend. 

The film is titled ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, after one of Freddie’s most iconic songs of the same name and is being directed by Bryan Singer who has also directed the majority of the X-Men franchise movies, as well as the Oscar-winner, ‘The Usual Suspects’.

Talking about donning the role of Freddie Mercury, Rami told Entertainment Weekly, “When you’re able to open your eyes and see a different person staring back at you in the mirror, it’s a very affirming.” 

The movie is said to be detailing Freddie Mercury’s rise to success and fame right from the dawn of the personality, back in 1970 to the historic performance at Live Aid in 1985.

“We’re going to use Freddie as much as possible and use myself as much as possible. I’m in Abbey Road right now if that should say anything to you. I’m not working on my acting,” said Malek when asked about how he plans to recreate Freddie’s iconic voice. Singer also added that the film won’t so much be a biopic as he would be the documenting of a series of historic events in the life of the famed singer. 

We can’t wait to see the movie!

Because let’s all be very honest about one thing: ‘Game of Thrones’ is losing the pot somewhere. It isn’t the great series it once was. The directors and producers are getting a bit sloppy and predictable. It’s true no matter what you might say. We knew Jon and Dany were to hook up (quite frankly Jon calling her Dany was a little too far-fetched for a George R.R. Martin novel which is why they should just stick to the books, but never you mind). We knew Gendry would make a comeback. We kinda saw a dragon death on its way and well, Baelish’s days were numbered a long time ago. Let’s just get over all of that because now the guys are just giving us what we want and the show is no fun anymore. 

Melisandre Could Be The Catalyst That Game of Thrones Needs In Season 8HBO

But, for the sake of the franchise and all the hullabaloo that comes along with it, we’ll stoke your trivial fandom fire one more time (just kidding; there’s going to be a lot more). 

If you’re wondering whatever happened to Melisandre on ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7, ever since she announced she was leaving for Volantis, then don’t wonder because that’s exactly where she’s headed. The reasons however, behind Meli wanting to go back to Volantis have more to do than just the fact that she foresaw her death. 

Melisandre Could Be The Catalyst That Game of Thrones Needs In Season 8HBO

Let’s go back to Season 6 for a bit, to the episode when one High Priestess Kinvara paid Tyrion and Lord Varys a visit in Meereen while Dany was away, captured by the Dothraki tribe. The scene went something like this: 

TYRION: “The truth is, we need your help. We were hoping that we could somehow persuade you…”
KINVARA: “You don’t need to persuade me. I came to help. Daenerys Stormborn is the one who was promised. From the fire she was reborn to remake the world… Daenerys has been sent to lead the people against the darkness in this war and in the Great War still to come.”

Melisandre Could Be The Catalyst That Game of Thrones Needs In Season 8HBO

Now Here Goes The Story: 

Volantis happens to be one of the three Free Cities of Essos. But, that’s not all. The city sits on an amount of dragon-glass that is so vast that the people actually build their homes with it. Oh wait, there’s more. In Volantis resides an army of thousands of ferocious soldiers, known as the Fiery Hand. They wear dark red armour on orange robes and wield spears that are shaped like flames. Whether or not these spears will also light up like the Beric Dondarion’s does is yet to be seen. But, let’s examine the facts at hand. 

Melisandre Could Be The Catalyst That Game of Thrones Needs In Season 8HBO

We know that Kinvara the High Priestess of Volantis is already gunning for Queen Daenerys Targaryen and as such, is waiting for a sign so they can call on the Fiery Hand at the hour of need to fight alongside her, against the white walkers. We also know that Melisandre is on her way to Volantis and could very well carry the news of the Great War to Kinvara. At this point, we would have a bevvy of soldiers ready to fight for and answer to no one but the God of Light; courtesy of Melisandre being the bearer of news for the High Priest and Priestess of Volantis. 

Now imagine how this army will change the entire game for Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and the fate of the white walkers! 

I’ll leave you to your imagination, on that note.

Just when you thought there’s only so much to India’s favourite off-spinner, Harbhajan Singh goes and bowls you over, nice and clean with this recent piece of news that he is about to turn his cap around to  the title of Bollywood singer! 

Yes, veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh will be teaming up with India’s finest music composer Mithoon for a music single dedicated to celebrating the contribution of real life heroes who have strived towards the welfare of the nation. This is the very first time the sauvé cricketer who hails from Punjab will be taking to the mic and is already taking lessons in the studio.

Speaking about the recent announcement of the event, Mithoon said in a statement, “It’s actually a thought that Harbhajan shared with me. We have been close friends for a while now and he has always expressed his interest in music. He wanted to do something to celebrate our national heritage and culture. We were always contemplating on working together and were in talks of collaborating on a single since over a year now. This concept cropped up on his birthday and while there many ideas exchanged this particular idea appealed to us the most. I always believe music should address a higher purpose and collaborations of ideas should bring meaning to the fore.”

The video is set to be shot across different states of India and will feature the real lives of the common man who are the real driving force of our country. The single will be sung in Hinglish and will be premiered in the month of December this year.

Thursday may not be the best of days in the week; but, trust us when we say we’ve got your back. As a dose of feel good, here is something that will at the very least leave you feeling brighter than before and ready to take on the world… maybe like Spiderman…?

The Comic Con India crew recently attended Sony India’s Exclusive ‘Spiderman: Homecoming’ media event in Singapore with Sahil Shah from East India Comedy. Sahil as part of the CCI Crew hosted a special conversation with the cast of the movie including with Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, the video for which is right here.

And guess what? Sahil brings up THAT topic… yeah, the one about the Desi Spiderman song and all!

Oh, and guess what else?! Tom Holland reacts to it, too! By singing it!

How awesome is this guy, anyway?

Also, I have to say it. Tom Holland is a cool kid. And ‘Spiderman: Homecoming’ might be exactly the kind of redemption the franchise needs for the webbed superhero.

And till we’re waiting to see how much good Holland does to the role, we’ll take this one for now.

We all know and applaud director Neill Blomkamp for the brilliance that was ‘District 9′, released in 2009. And we all remember the grim and brutal ‘Elysium’, starring Matt Damon, in 2013. The director has a knack for showcasing sci-fi in a way that lends a thrilling experience to every viewer. 

Earlier this month Blomkamp began releasing short films from his home label, Oats Studio which is his experimental venture. Under the label, he released his first short film, ‘Rakka’ which was based on alien invasion; followed by Cooking With Bill which was based on a wacky infomercial gone horribly wrong. And following the league is Blomkamp’s latest short film, ‘Firebase’. 

The film is based in the era of the Vietnam War. The plot follows American GIs who have been deployed in a rain forest where something dangerous lurks. As they search for some sort of evidence, they begin to find bodies with horrifying under growths in the skin. As the film goes on, they start to find footage that shows tanks and planes suspended and floating in mid-air. On the involvement of the CIA, the party is faced with the River God—a supernatural creature who seems almost invincible. 

‘District 9' Director Neill Blomkamp Thrills With The Release Of His Second Short Film, ‘Firebase'© YouTube

The plot follows various twists and turns that leave you gripping your chair tighter than ever as the scenes unfold. The starting scene opens with the body of a disfigured soldier propped and tied up in the rainforests. It gets more graphic as the film rolls on. Fans of Blomkamp’s District 9 will have a field day with his latest film! Be warned though, this movie is graphic beyond anything you know and you will want to squeal and squirm at the realness of the imagery. And if you have delicate heart, well, make it strong. Grab the popcorn. And while you’re at it, a safe blanket just in case the River God gets in…

Father’s Day may have just gone by; but, one look at this video of Saqib Saleem and your hearts will melt enough to want to give your Dad a hug, or a call. Saleem’s latest short film, titled ‘Aamad’ sees the actor portray the role of a male Kathak dancer—in itself, a rarity in the industry. Forget his last film that hit theatres, ‘Dobaara’. This will be the most impressionable image he creates in the moment. 

This Video Of Saqib Saleem As A Kathak Dancer Will Win Your Heart Over© YouTube

We have always seen female actresses doing classical dances on screen, but in current times one of the male lead actor who dared to portray a role as Kathak dancer is a rare thing to see. Well we are talking about the talented young actor Saqib Saleem who’s new short film titled ‘Aamad’ has just released on digital platform.   The film is produced released by Terribly Tiny Talkies and is directed by Neeraj Udhwani who has previously worked with Saqib as the writer of ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’. The short is about an emotional yet strained relationship between a father and his son. The film explores a story about a father who is a Kathak dancer and how his son is embarrassed of his father’s art because he is bullied by his friends as a young boy practising a classical art form tagged as being feminine. He moves on and distances himself from his father, growing upto becoming a corporate man himself. But due to unforeseen situation of his father being in a critical condition, he comes back and does that one final performance for the love of the art for his father.   

The short film is a lesson in time and relationships. It’s better to be late than to never be at all. Go spend time with your father. Life is too short to keep things to yourself and to not say sorry.

Well, it looks like the internet has finally found its next Boy Wonder and it’s none other than Hollywood singer Justin Bieber’s 18-year-old Dutchman security guard, Boy Reoles. Yes, he’s just 18 years old; yes, he’s the artist’s security guard. We’re trying to get over it, too. But, it’s really hard; especially when it’s with all those good looks in one body. We’re not sure he needs to guard Justin as much he should probably be guarding his own body, given that concert attendees took no time to hunt him down on social media. Clearly there are millions in the world who would like to have their hands all over Reoles, already. Yep, he should think of hiring another bodyguard just to guard him. Also, he should ensure that the next one isn’t as good looking as this.

It all started at Bieber’s most recent performance in the Netherlands, for the Pinkpop Festival, where Reoles was working on a security detail. And there were all sorts of puns going around; one of the most relatable being that Reoles was too hot to be ‘beliebed’. Geddit?!

“When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers, Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt to wake dragons out of stone,” Melisandre says. “In the ancient books it’s written that a warrior will draw a burning sword from the fire, and that sword shall be Lightbringer.” 

These are the words the red woman speaks when she talks about the Prince Who Was Promised. Initially, she believed this was Stannis Baratheon; especially since he did draw a sword from out of the flames, which only strengthened Melisandre’s belief. However, she was wrong about Stannis. And after their defeat, she all but gave up on her beliefs of Azhor Ahai Reborn. Except that Jon Snow came back to life. And for now, fans are rooting for him being the Prince Who Was Promised. Melisandre thinks so, too. Then, there’s Dany, our favourite Targaryen, Khaleesi; call her what you want. She literally rose from the flames, and she has three mighty dragons. She very well could be The One, too. 

Jon Snow Vs Ser Davos: Who Really Is Azor Ahai Reborn? One Reddit User Observed Something SurprisingHBO

But, let’s just look at a few observations, while revising what the prophecy about the return of Azhor Ahai says. 

According to the prophecy, as recounted by Melisandre, the following are the indicators of the coming of Azor Ahai. 

After a long summer, when the stars bleed and the cold breath of darkness falls heavy on the world. He shall be born again amidst smoke and salt. He shall wake dragons out of stone. He shall draw from the fire a burning sword, Lightbringer. 

While earlier we believed that the contenders for Azor Ahai reborn were Jon and Dany; we can now add a third name to this list and it’s the most unexpected name yet! It’s the Onion Knight Seaworth; Ser Davos! The same Ser Davos who served alongside Stannis until his death. 

Jon Snow Vs Ser Davos: Who Really Is Azor Ahai Reborn? One Reddit User Observed Something SurprisingHBO

According to one Reddit User, FollowTheBeard, “Davos drew Lightbringer from the fire. Davos was reborn amidst salt and smoke under a bleeding star. Davos resurrected Jon Snow and woke the dragon from stone. Davos is the savior that will protect the world from darkness. Davos is the Prince that was Promised.” He further states while the theory of Azhor Ahai can be associated with any of the key characters, as well as a combination of multiple people, the case for Ser Davos is a tad more convincing when seen in totality. 

He goes on to place instances for Ser Davos. Read on. 

Season 2, Episode 1: Sword

“In the ancient books, it is written that a Warrior will draw a burning sword from the fire, and that sword shall be Lightbringer. Stannis Baratheon, Lord of Light, your sword awaits you.” – Melisandre.

As seen in this clip, this quote is spoken by Melisandre as she burns effigies of the “false gods,” with Stannis and his followers in attendance. This is the first TV mention of the prophecy. Stannis walks forward, pulls the flaming sword from the fire, and sticks it in the sand as shown here. By now, obviously, we know Stannis was not the true Warrior, as Melisandre had believed.

However, sixty seconds after Stannis plants the burning sword among the pyres, when everyone has left the beach, Davos walks over to the sword and casually picks it up, then walks away with it. 

Season 2, Episode 9 & Season 3, Episode 1: Rebirth

“When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers, Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt…” – Melisandre.

Examining the heavier part of this quote first, “…Azor Ahai shall be born again amidst smoke and salt…”

At the Battle of the Blackwater, Davos is blasted from his ship by wildfire:

“Everyone thought you were dead.” – Salladhor Saan.

“I had heard you were dead”. – Stannis Baratheon.

Water is used pervasively in literature as a metaphoric mechanism of cleansing and rebirth. Fire is also widely used as a symbol for rebirth, renewed life, burning away corruption, etc. Davos “comes back to life” in the Season 3 premiere as he wakes up on an island, rescued by Salladhor Saan, who even says:

“You’ve only just come back to life. Stay alive a little longer, my friend”. – Salladhor Saan.

Jon Snow Vs Ser Davos: Who Really Is Azor Ahai Reborn? One Reddit User Observed Something SurprisingHBO

Thus, Davos is reborn amidst smoke (wildfire) and salt (seawater). The metaphorical implications of Davos’s rebirth can be thoroughly examined, but that’s for another post. 

As for the first part of the quote, “When the red star bleeds and the darkness gathers…”

This is likely the most “on-the-nose” portion of the prophecy. The bleeding red star likely refers to the red comet shown in the episode, “The North Remembers”, which is noted and commented upon by several characters across Westeros and Essos, throughout Season 2. Darkness could literally refer to the nighttime Battle of the Blackwater, or metaphorically to impending winter, cold, death, doom, unknown and all the other symbolic interpretations of “darkness” that need no further explaining.

Season 6, Episode 2: Waking a Dragon

“…shall be born again amidst smoke and salt to wake dragons from the stone.” – Melisandre. 

By Season 6, Melisandre has become disillusioned with the Lord of Light and her powers. Empty, lost, and directionless, she loses faith until Davos convinces her to try and resurrect Jon Snow, as seen in this scene here.

Jon Snow Vs Ser Davos: Who Really Is Azor Ahai Reborn? One Reddit User Observed Something SurprisingHBO

“I saw you drink poison that should have killed you. I saw you give birth to a demon made of shadows. Fuck [the Lord], then. Fuck all of them. I’m not a devout man, obviously. Seven gods, drowned gods, tree gods, it’s all the same. I’m not asking the Lord of Light for help. I’m asking the woman who showed me that miracles exist.” – Davos Seaworth.

During the resurrection scene, Jon Snow is laid out on a stone slab. Melisandre performs the ritual and…nothing happens. Tormund leaves, Melisandre leaves, Edd leaves. Only Davos stays. He lingers, as seen from this clip here. He approaches Jon, internally begging, pleading, willing, praying for his return. Shortly after, Jon gasps his first breath.

Jon Snow Vs Ser Davos: Who Really Is Azor Ahai Reborn? One Reddit User Observed Something SurprisingHBO

The delay between the ritual and first breath was not a dramatic pause. Melisandre did not resurrect Jon Snow. She never believed she could, nor did she have any faith left in the cause. Davos did. Davos, not Melisandre, brought Jon Snow back to life. Davos woke the dragon from stone.

To give further weight to this theory, in an interview with Conan O’ Brien, Liam Cunningham, the actor who plays Ser Davos Seaworth, says, “George R.R. Martin told me a Game of Thrones secret.” A secret that the author told Cunningham not to tell anybody. Here’s the video of his mysterious confession. 

Yes, there are other parts of the theory that also state that if Azor Ahai is, indeed, the same as the prince that was promised, then, he is to be born of the line of Aerys II and Rhaella, according to the woods witch. In this case, it would either not be Ser Davos, or if it is, then Azor Ahai and the prince that was promised are two different characters which also makes the plot all the more interesting. 

Then again, according to Maester Aemon, the word used to describe the prince in the prophecy was a gender-neutral word. While all assumed that the prince must be male, Aemon recently came to believe the prophecy could point to a female as well. If we go by this, we’re rooting for Dany. But, here again, we don’t know if Azor Ahai and the prince that was promised are the same, yet. Only time will tell. 

But, till the time the clouds are cleared from the prophecy, we are having our minds blown by this theory. What do you think?
