A new stylish Norwegian thriller is out this summer, and Nicolaj Coster-Waldau is playing one of the main parts (thank you to [livejournal.com profile] trailer_spot for the information). IMDB doesn't say too much about the film, only that it is a story of "an accomplished headhunter risks everything to obtain a valuable painting owned by a former mercenary". But I have a special place in my heart for Norwegian trillers ("Insomnia" was great) and another special place for Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, so I have collected some film-related photographs:

The rest )

Edit: From [livejournal.com profile] verdande_mi: a link to the trailer of the film without subs is here. Nikolaj features first around the 00:49 mark.

There is a bit of excitement going on in ASOIF fandom as the first (unconfirmed!) spoilers for "A Dance with Dragons" are released. Apparently, some Amazon orders were dispatched in Germany, or something like this. If this is true.

I have read some spoilers (I sworn to not disclose where :D) , but they are , of course, unconfirmed and MIGHT NOT BE TRUE. And regardless, I will not tell them to anyone because it seems that I am such a minority in the fandom as far as spoilers are concerned. As in: I love spoilers, the rest of the world hates them.

Me? Reading Russian literature, I grew up with the idea that stories have bad endings more often than they have good ones. So I discovered by experience that for me the best way to deal with a bad ending is to know it in advance, before I get too emotionally involved. The last time I read something unspoiled was "Little mermaid" at the age of 7, and after reading the ending I said to myself "The fairytales have bad endings too, I must check the endings from now on". So I did, always reading the last pages of the book first.

When I joined the fandom and found out that not everyone reads the last pages first, I was surprised. How do you deal with the death of your favourite characters? Or with the ships that gone astray?

But all I wanted to say, really - I WILL NOT SPOIL YOU!!! HONESTLY. I will post pictures of Nicolaj Coster-Waldau and other unspoilery things. And this post is just to discuss how you feel about spoilers and why.

PS: But I went and pre-ordered my copy of the book on Amazon. What if their software has a glitch again and my copy is dispatched?
