Even when he’s not playing Jon Snow, Kit Harington is blindly pledging his life to the greater good and engaging in a futile conflict.

Lionsgate just released the trailer for Testament of Youth, a World War I-set romantic drama based on the memoir of the same name by Vera Brittain (Alicia Vikander). Her account follows the lives of the “Lost Generation,” specifically those of her brother and her fiancé Roland Leighton (Kit Harington), both of whom enlisted.

For 'Game of Thrones' Rose Leslie, the 'Honeymoon' is just beginning -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

honeymoon

Rose Leslie, Ygritte from Game of Thrones, is accustomed to working in severe locales, like Iceland, so she’s only half joking when she says that one of the things that drew her to Honeymoon, the creepy romantic thriller that debuts on March 7 at SXSW, was the North Carolina weather. “I was very happy that I was allowed to wear t-shirts and shorts… and no more fur,” she says. “I was very happy that I wasn’t freezing.”

Honeymoon stars Leslie and Cockneys vs Zombies‘ Harry Treadaway as Bea and Paul, two newlyweds who are spending their first few blissful days as a married couple at a rustic retreat in the sticks. But something goes horribly wrong when Bea goes missing and Paul finds her naked in the woods, completely disoriented with no memory of what happened. “Something terrible and awful happens to Bea, and you see the deep gloominess that happens within her,” Leslie says. “She makes a decision, rightly or wrongly, she does it for love and she does it for what she feels is the best course of action for Paul. It’s ultimately absolutely tormenting.”

Might supernatural forces be at work? (After all, it is playing the Midnighters section of SXSW.) Perhaps. But what attracted Leslie to the project, which is directed by first-time filmmaker Leigh Janiak, was the film’s raw, intimate realism of a relationship. “It’s a very stripped down portrayal, a very honest approach of something that is very shocking and sad,” says Leslie. “The feelings that it evoked when I first read the script was how it explores such an intimate relationship, and one of my favorite movies of all time is Blue Valentine. I love how candidly frank the camera was on that particular film, and just how you were so engrossed with this couple. And loving that film, I kind of wanted to explore the aspects of being in an intimate two-hander feature such as this. It’s a transformation tale and it is that transformation and the love story and the emotional endurance that the characters go through that definitely drew me to it.”

Kit Harington bares most in 'Pompeii': Exclusive First Look

Hey Jon Snow, what’d you do with all your clothes?

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has talked publicly about the physical transformation he undertook to play Milo, a slave turned gladiator, but little did we know he’d be so … exposed. We’re worlds away from The Wall.

As captivating as Harington’s physique might be, it’s hard to discern what exactly is going on in this exclusive first look at Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson’s Mount Vesuvius pic Pompeii. Are those ashes? Where is he going? Is he coolly walking away from an erupting volcano? Did he forget his shirt? Thankfully, Harington took a few minutes to shed some light on why Milo is looking so surly and bare in this photo.

'Thor 2': Chris Hemsworth has a viking attitude about hero's severed hand

It wasn’t quite “the chop heard ’round the world” but fans are still abuzz about the battlefield footage from Thor: The Dark World (Nov. 8) that was shown at Comic-Con International last Saturday — specifically the climactic moment when Loki’s sword appears to lop off the outstretched right hand of the staggering thunder god.

Franchise star Chris Hemsworth missed the Hall H preview panel for the best of reasons (he’s in Hong Kong busy filming Cyber with director Michael Mann), but a few days later he still sounded disbelieving of the notion that 6,600 fans in Hall H had already watched final-stage footage of key scenes that he himself has yet to see.  READ FULL STORY
