Picture Round-up: Game of Thrones release date confirmed, Eccleston as Malekith in Thor: The Dark World and Texas Chainsaw 3D image released

November 15th, 2012 by Marc Comments

It’s our semi-regular look at the big and best images floating around today…

HBO has released a first teaser poster for the third season of Game of Thrones (above). However, rather than an exciting tidbit, we get number or, more precisely, the release date which is March 31st, 2013. If this season follows suit, it’ll be based on A Storm of Swords, the third novel in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Next up, we get a new look at the upcoming Texas Chainsaw 3D from LIONSGATE. The movie will be  a continuation of the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off. The film is released in cinemas January 9th with advanced previews on the 4th and 5th of January. In the image it seems one of our heroes (?) has stumbled into Leatherface’s weaponary.

Finally, MTV have published the first images of Christopher Eccleston as Malekith The Accursed in the upcoming Thor sequel, The Dark World. It looks like he keeps the look from the comics (we put an image at the bottom of the character in the comics) and his Dark Elves seem to be along the same lines, but not as expressionistic as they are in the comics. Thor: The Dark World opens on November 8, 2013

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
