We're back with another video round-up, this time featuring clips from HBO's Game of Thrones Season 5 and the Julia Stiles-starring horror film, Out of the Dark (now in theaters), as well as two videos featuring renowned filmmaker Joe Dante discussing a pair of Roger Corman titles that Kino Lorber is releasing to Blu-ray this May: X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes and The Premature Burial (we also have a look at the final cover art and details on the bonus features for both Ray Milland-starring movies).

Game of Thrones Season 5: “Game of Thrones follows kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and noblemen who are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As betrayal, lust, intrigue and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdoms, their bloody struggle for the Iron Throne will have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences.”

Season 5 of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO on Sunday, April 12th.

Out of the Dark: "Starring Julia Stiles, Scott Speedman, and Stephen Rea, OUT OF THE DARK is a ghost story set in South America, where a young family’s new life turns from promising to terrifying when they are forced to confront ancient legends, ghosts, and a haunting family secret."

Directed by Lluís Quílez off a screenplay by Alex Pastor, David Pastor, and Javier Gullón, Out of the Dark stars Julia Stiles, Scott Speedman, and Stephen Rea. From Vertical Entertainment, Out of the Dark is now in theaters.

Joe Dante on X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes: "When the brilliant Dr. Xavier (Milland) concocts a serum to improve human sight, he stumbles upon a formula for x-ray vision. Inspired by its awesome medical potential, but shunned by his short-sighted colleagues, the doctor tests the potion on himself, only to discover that his ability to see through walls, clothing and flesh is slowly eclipsed by and insatiable desire to look still further - even if it means seeing more than any mortal can bear!"

Directed by Roger Corman off a screenplay by Robert Dillon and Ray Russell, X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes stars Ray Milland, Diana Van der Vlis, Harold J. Stone, John Hoyt, and Don Rickles.

Kino Lorber Studio Classics will release X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes on Blu-ray and DVD on May 12th with the following special features:

Joe Dante on The Premature Burial: "Talk about a tortured artist! Oscar winner Ray Milland is Guy, a medical student and painter whose obsessive fear of being buried alive compels him to build himself a tomb with a view, equipped with everything he can think of to escape death. But it's when his long suffering wife convinces him to destroy the tomb that he finds himself in the gravest of danger!"

Directed by Roger Corman off a screenplay by Charles Beaumont and Ray Russell (based on the 1844 short story of the same name by Edgar Allan Poe), The Premature Burial stars Ray Milland, Hazel Court, Richard Ney, and Dick Miller.

On May 12th, Kino Lorber Studio Classics will release The Premature Burial on Blu-ray and DVD with the following special features:
