The folks over at HBO sure do know how to toy with our emotions. Game of Thrones fans were in a state of a frenzied mixture of disbelief and denial following *REDACTED* “death” in the Season 5 finale, despite the actor himself stating afterwards that, as far as he knew, the character was really and truly dead. Director David Nutter even confirmed they had killed our Dear *REDACTED*; even at the risk of breaking President Obama’s heart. And yet now, they’ve released a new teaser poster for Season 6 that has us all going back to the drawing board with our HE LIVES theories. (more…)

Game of Thrones has reached a really exciting point. After the Season 5 finale, the show has officially caught up chronologically with George R.R. Martin‘s A Song Of Ice and Fire series. It will be different going into Season 6 now for viewers, because they won’t have one of the books as a cheat-sheet of sorts, letting them know what’s ahead- we’re in new and uncharted territory. The only thing we have to guide us in our plot guesses so far are some interesting casting additions; such as, most recently, Ian McShane. He’s totally playing into GOT fans’ penchant for creating pretty impressive plot theories, though, by giving us a major hint as to who he’ll be portraying. Warning- spoilers ahead! (more…)
The Last Witch Hunter is an intriguing entry into the world of cinematic fantasy genre. While it doesn’t particularly revolutionize the way we see witches and warlocks nor does it herald “the next great franchise” of feature films, it is a solid tale packed with great special effects, excellent pacing, a presentation designed for an intellectual audience (relatively speaking, of course), and charming characters that are fairly believable in terms of their place in this witchy world.
Vincent D’Onofrio is living by a slightly-adapted entertainment mantra made famous by Mel Brooks: it’s good to be the King(pin). Enjoying a run as the main villain on Marvel’s Daredevil series (which will be airing its second season on Netflix in early 2016), the guy who apparently is so good at being bad has now turned his attention to another nefarious character: the Wizard of Oz. D’onofrio has been cast as the mostly-scary ruler in the upcoming television series Emerald City, which will likely air on NBC sometime next year.

It should come as no surprise that another of George R.R. Martin‘s works is getting the premium cable network series treatment. Fans will be glad to know that Martin will not be handling the scripting duties for the new Cinemax series, The Skin Trade, instead Kalinda Vazquez (Prison Break, Once Upon A Time) will write the pilot and produce the show. What’s the series about? (more…)
Rumors of a Game of Thrones movie have been flying around for over a year now, recently along with a pretty convincing rumor that George R.R. Martin had confirmed discussions for one. The Daily Star reported that Martin had gone even further and revealed that a movie was not just being discussed but was currently in the works, even adding some details about it. Here are the reported George R. R. Martin quotes that got all us GoT fans riled up: (more…)
I was really hoping that someone had photo-shopped an Iron Throne made out of Emmys instead of swords because it would be very apropos to Game of Thrones virtual sweep last night at the 67th Annual Emmy Awards. The HBO series grabbed 12 Emmy Awards last night, breaking West Wing‘s (1st Season) 9 Emmy award wins in 2000 for a single season. Game of Thrones had earlier won 8 Emmy awards at the Creative Arts Emmys which celebrates technical and other similar achievements in American television programming. Which four did the series win last night to push them over the top? (more…)
Next time we see Jon Snow’s best pal Sam Tarly (John Bradley-West), he’ll probably be sporting that trademark frowning face because it seems the whole Tarly family is coming for an extended visit. That’s right Poppa, Momma, and his little sister will be joining his already announced brother Dickon played by Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter) for season six of Game of Thrones. Who did HBO cast for these roles? (more…)
