EW – Vikings’ midseason finale left much of its cast bloodied, battered, and bruised. A wounded Ragnar retreated in defeat from a battle with Rollo, Lagertha was left on the verge of death after a brutal stabbing, and an aimless Bjorn set sail for the Mediterranean to honor his absent father.

 

As viewers continue to reel from the climactic episode, cast members Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok), Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Alexander Ludwig (Bjorn Ironside), and Gustaf Skarsgård (Floki) stopped by EW’s studio at San Diego Comic-Con to tease what’s next in the back half of season 4.

 

Winnick said it’s “no secret” Lagertha is alive, as she’s currently filming season 5 in Ireland, but the shieldmaiden is in “a different place in her life.” She also promised a dramatic throwdown between Lagertha and Queen Aslaug.

 

“It’s going to be a cat fight. The two power women go head to head,” Winnick said. “It’s a really interesting scene because you don’t expect what happens.”

 

Bjorn, on the other hand, is enjoying a lighter storyline. “Floki and Bjorn end up going to the Mediterranean, and they work on their tans a little bit,” Ludwig said. “You’re definitely going to see Floki and Bjorn’s relationship flourish.”

 

For the full run-down on where Vikings will pick up, watch EW’s full interview above.

EW – The bricks of The Dark Tower are being rearranged.

 

Next February’s big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s epic fantasy saga will retell the story of Roland the Gunslinger and his pursuit of The Man in Black by drawing together elements from all eight of the author’s novels.

 

It’s a unique approach, similar to the way superhero movies craft a new origin story based on decades of comic book mythology. But King fans are naturally wondering: What parts of this series will they actually see on screen?

 

Without spoiling plot twists from any of the stories, here are some of the elements and themes that find their way from page to screen.

 

BOOK I: The Gunslinger – (1982)

 

This book sets up Roland’s quest for vengeance against the Man in Black and establishes his bond with a mysterious boy, known as Jake. The basic structure of the story serves as the backbone for the new film.

 

BOOK II: The Drawing of the Three ­ (1987)

 

Notions of parallel realities stacked atop one another and “ka-tet” (a family found through destiny) originated here. Most of the other key elements of this book will probably be saved for another film, since the characters Eddie and Susannah, who are drawn from our world into Roland’s apocalyptic Mid-World, are being saved for a future movie.

 

BOOK III: The Waste Lands ­(1991)

 

The movie features one of this book’s most memorable set-pieces – Dutch Hill, a decrepit Brooklyn mansion that literally comes alive to protect a portal to Mid-World. Both film and novel also include a lot of Jake’s life in New York, with Vikings actress Katheryn Winnick playing the boy’s mother, who fears the visions her son is having about a gunslinger, a Man in Black, and an ethereal Tower are signs of a psychological breakdown.The bricks of The Dark Tower are being rearranged.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERLagertha’s journey home from Paris is plagued by trouble in the upcoming Titan Comics miniseries.

 

Vikings_Uprising_1_Cover_C
Fans of History’s Vikings won’t have to wait until the show’s return to find out more about the new world created following the disappearance of Ragnar following the showdown with his brother Rollo. This September, Titan Comics will launch a new comic book series that reveals what happened in the immediate aftermath of the series’ midseason finale.

 

Vikings: Uprising won’t focus on Travis Fimmel’s disgraced head of Kattegat nor Clive Standen’s ambitious sibling, however; instead, it’ll follow Ragnar’s ex-wife Lagertha (played by Katheryn Winnick on the show) as she escapes events in Paris, only to find herself forced to bear arms to prevent even more bloodshed and slaughter once she returns home.

 

The mini-series is the second Vikings comic from the publisher — the earlier Vikings: Godhead comic book sold out of its debut issue and went back to press — and sees writer Cavan Scott return to team with Batman and Wolverine artist Staz Johnson and explore what happened during the time jump of the show’s fourth season midpoint.

 

The first issue will be available for pre-order in July, with five covers by artists Chris Wahl, Mark Hammermeister, Claudia Caranfa, Verity Glass and Josh Burns, which can be seen below. The series will launch digitally and in comic book stores Sept. 14.

CARTERMATT – Today marks the final edition in our Emmy preview series among dramas, and we certainly have saved one of the most-competitive categories for last in Supporting Actress. There are an almost-endless list of great candidates out there for this particular award, but we’ve managed to narrow down our personal list to just six names who were exemplary in the past year. Some of these may be included on many other lists; however, we also think there are a couple of names in here that may not be that prevalent elsewhere, but these performances are worthy of a nod to us. That excites us, since some of these performers are being tragically overlooked.

 

To go along with our personal picks below, we’re also including a poll at the bottom of this article for you to pick your own favorite! We’re keeping this poll open until July 13 (the day before the actual Emmys are announced), so you are going to have plenty of time to choose your favorite and we announce the winners among our readers. You can vote as many times as you wish and remember that this poll is just for fun.

 

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

 

Katheryn Winnick, “Vikings” (History) – If you are watching Vikings then you know that Winnick’s portrayal of Lagertha is one that deserves Emmy recognition (and if you’re not watching “Vikings” you really should be, because it’s one of the best shows on TV right now). Lagertha is a hero that everyone wants to root for as she breaks the barriers of women in period pieces on TV right now that seem to want to put women in positions of weakness. This character is a warrior, a mother and a ruler, three very different layers of a woman that Winnick threads together with perfect grace.

 

Now, we’re turning this over to you! Vote for your favorite here, and head over here to see some other entries in our Emmy series right now!

 

 

Vikings is also on their list for drama series that should be nominated:

 

Outstanding Drama Series
Vikings (History) Speaking of under-appreciated series, we conclude here with what is one of the best shows currently on TV that few people are putting in awards consideration. What “Vikings” does from an acting, writing, and set design perspective is remarkable. It throws you into this world, makes you care about its characters (even the awful ones), and also incorporates enough universal themes to have these stories and relationships be applicable to present day. It’s an epic like no other.

 

You can vote for it here.

Zap2It – With so much of pop culture obsessing over why we aren’t seeing strong, fierce females, perhaps they should turn their attention to Katheryn Winnick — and no, we aren’t referring to the character she plays on “Vikings.”

 

The Canadian beauty, best known for playing the imposing Viking figure Lagertha, posted a video clip to her Instagram on Tuesday (June 3). “Checked this off my bucket list,” she writes alongside the intense (some might say: insane) sight of a Great White being lured towards her as it throttles a cage with the actress inside.

 

In the clip, you can hear a male voice scream the F-word very loudly — and we’d have to say, we’re with him. Leaping clear out of the water, the shark seems to be the length of the cage itself. But notice that you never hear a female voice shrieking — because much like her character, Winnick is not easily intimidated.

 

“Shark diving with the Great White Sharks,” writes the 38-year-old actress and animal lover, using the hashtags #justdoit and #shark-conservation from what she identifies as the waters off Cape Town, South Africa.

 

Although relatively short in stature, Winnick is an imposing figure. She began training in martial arts at the age of seven, obtained her first black belt at 13, and by 21 she had founded 3 different martial arts schools. So, that Great White might not realize who he’s messing with.
