‘Vikings: Uprising’ Comic Series Explores Aftermath of Show’s Midseason Finale

June 22, 2016

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

 

Vikings_Uprising_1_Cover_E
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.

History’s ‘Vikings’: Season 5 Filming Starts — But Why Will Rollo Be Absent?

June 21, 2016

Inquisitr – Fans of History’s Vikings can officially get excited about Season 5 after Katheryn Winnick posted a video to Instagram about the new season. It seems Ragnar will also be present. However, the character of Rollo will be absent for at least part of the Season 5.

 

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information and speculation about Season 4 and 5 of History Channel’s Vikings. Please proceed with caution if you wish to avoid spoilers.

 

Vikings Season 4 is currently on hiatus until later in the year after History decided to issue double the episodes this season and split the season over 2016 into two, 10-episode segments. History has not released when the second half of Season 4 of Vikings will return; however, Katheryn Winnick (who plays main character, Lagertha), has excited fans by releasing a short new video to her Instagram account announcing that filming has begun on Season 5 of Vikings.

 

We’re back.. #Vikings #Season5

A video posted by Katheryn Winnick (@katherynwinnick) on

 

But what can fans expect to see in Season 5 of Vikings? Will Ragnar, Lagertha, and the rest of the original cast still be present?

 

Considering Katheryn Winnick posted the Season 5 announcement video, it seems likely she will be present for at least part of Season 5 of Vikings. This means that Lagertha must survive the wounds inflicted on her in Episode 10 of Season 4 of Vikings.

An interview with the show’s creator and writer Michael Hirst

June 08, 2016

This article was written about Season 3 because that’s what is airing in the UK now.

HISTORY EXTRA – With its gripping mix of gory battles, religious conflict and compelling characters, the epic historical television show Vikings attracts millions of viewers worldwide. With the third season in full swing, we spoke to the show’s writer and creator Michael Hirst about the challenges of adapting historical material for the screen and why the world has been gripped by ‘Viking fever’…

 

Q: Vikings has proven to be incredibly popular with audiences across the world. Why do you think there is such an appetite for the Vikings at the moment?

 

A: Well, let me tell you a story. After I’d written and made Elizabeth [the 1998 film about the life of Elizabeth I, starring Cate Blanchett], I was commissioned to write a screenplay about Alfred the Great, who fought against the Vikings. I started researching the Vikings’ culture and gods and democratic ways – loads of really fascinating things I didn’t know about before. But when I told people about it, their response was pretty half-hearted. Fast-forward to when I began working on Vikings [which premiered in 2013]. Now, when I told friends what I was writing about, they were incredibly enthusiastic. Something had changed and Vikings were suddenly in the zeitgeist.

 

When I was researching the series, I was definitely aware of a new interest dawning. People are interested in the Vikings now in a way they weren’t interested 10 years ago, not even in Scandinavia. There’s no real satisfactory answer to why this is the case, but it’s true.

 

But there’s also some correlation between a successful show and a historical interest. I was shown round the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo recently and the curator told me that since our show began, admissions had doubled. So to some extent the show itself has also created an appetite. There must be some deeper explanation that I can’t help you with, but I know it exists!

 

Q: In many ways the morals, beliefs and value systems of Viking culture are completely alien to modern audiences. How do you make characters from such a different society relatable?

 


A: People told me I wouldn’t be able to make a successful series with Vikings as my lead characters, because the Vikings are always seen as the ‘other’ – they are seen as the hairy, ignorant savages who come in the dead of the night, break your door down, rape your wife and daughter and steal your goods. Just mentioning the word ‘Viking’ would summon up these prejudices and received opinions. But while there are elements of truth in this reputation, it’s largely a cliché.

Vikings Star Travis Fimmel Knows a Thing or Two About Swinging a Sword

June 08, 2016

ESQUIRE – The Australian actor easily balances the CGI-heavy Warcraft and indie comedy Maggie’s Plan.

landscape-1464894120-travis-lead

The Travis Fimmel moment is upon us. After a brief career as an underwear model (“I only did that one modeling gig. I was 21 or something the last time I did that”), the Australian-born actor has been steadily working since he starred in in a 2003 reboot of Tarzan for The WB. A number of indies and TV shows followed before he found a signature role as Ragnar Lothbrok on the History Channel’s Vikings. He’s still swinging a sword, leading armies, and generally kicking ass in his first leading role in a big old Hollywood summer extravaganza, but the context is a bit different (and much more computer animated) in Warcraft, the Duncan Jones-directed adaptation of the massively popular knights-versus-orcs fantasy game series Worlds of Warcraft.

 

gallery-1464893803-hdm059916esqtravis-001Should you find yourself interested in spending time with Mr. Fimmel’s hirsute mug but need less swordplay in your life, be advised that he is also a charming romantic foil to Gretta Gerwig in Rebecca Miller’s new indie Maggie’s Plan. As you’d suspect to look at it him for even a second, Fimmel is a self-avowed outdoorsy type, and he even has a horse just outside of Los Angeles. Esquire caught him on the phone just as he was about to fly out L.A. and talked to him about pickles and knowing where to look when you’re fighting an orc.

 

I know you’re from Australia, but where do you live these days?

 

It depends on where the work is. I don’t get home as much as I wanna. The last four years, I’ve been in Ireland most of the time.

 

That’s where you shoot Vikings, right?

 

Yeah. I love it, mate. Great people, great crew. It’s a beautiful country. It rains a lot, unfortunately, but other than the rain, it’s beautiful.

30 of TV’s Supporting Acting Stars Sit for Epic Class Photo

June 03, 2016

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Yeah yeah, someone else is always the prom king or queen, or top of the class. But these 30 stars, gathered together on April 15 in L.A., comprise this year’s Emmy supporting actor contenders, second to none and most likely to succeed.

 

Getting 30 of TV’s hardest-working actors in a room for three hours was no small or easy feat. But when they all descended on Milk Studios in Hollywood on a Friday in April — some literally just having flown in from London, New York, Portland and other far-off sets — they all proceeded to geek over on each other. Sterling K. Brown, who played Christopher Darden in The People v. O.J. Simpson, received a politician’s share of handshakes and requests for selfies. Daredevil’s Jon Bernthal and his dog Boss shared swoon-worthy public displays of affection. Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story: Hotel), Zoe Lister-Jones (Confirmation, Life in Pieces) and Joel Kinnaman (House of Cards) performed a dramatic reading of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s 1991 hit “Summertime.” And Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Vincent Rodriguez danced for a THR Snapchat. By the end of the three-hour shoot, numbers were exchanged, friendships formed. The Supporting Actor Class of 2016 was one for the books.

Clive Standen: ‘There’s too much sex and violence on cable shows nowadays’

June 03, 2016

gallery-1464705632-clive-standen-vikings-2

DIGITAL SPY – Clive Standen – star of Vikings – has hit out at pointless sex scenes and excessive violence on cable TV shows.

 

Standen, who plays the formidable Rollo on History’s series, says that screen sex and violence are fine if they “move the story on”.

 

“I think there’s too much violence and too many sex scenes in dramas nowadays – especially on cable shows,” he told Digital Spy. “It’s a lot of noise signifying nothing. They’ve turned into moments where we go and make a cup of tea.

 

“You’ve got to almost put the audience in the battle. You’ve got to feel that some of your favourite characters are going to die at any second – that keeps it visceral and keeps it real.”

 

Standen added that he often gets injured filming the rough-and-tumble battle sequences on Vikings, but insisted he has no complaints.

 

“I get shields in the face, I got caught in the shoulder by a spear,” he revealed. “But it’s Vikings. It does exactly what it says on the tin. If you’re going to start complaining about that kind of stuff, then you’ve signed on to do the wrong job.”

 

Vikings charts the sibling rivalry between Rollo and his brother Ragnar (Travis Fimmel), with Standen admitting it’s “easy playing the jealousy” with his co-star.
