Game Of Thrones

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…)

Well, if the title didn’t warn you enough already, then consider this your official Game of Thrones Spoiler warning. If you click past this intro then it is all on you, I wash my hands of the whole thing. The last season of HBO‘s Game of Thrones ended with an epic “Holy Crap” moment for character Jon Snow (Kit Harington), commander of the Night’s Watch. Oh great.. now I’m gonna have to put up with all those crying that’s a spoiler! Well it was last season and I’m gonna use the 5 month drop rule and pick up that spoiler and eat it right off the top of the trash. Click through if you wanna know more. (more…)

Emilia Clarke Speaks Out Against TV Nudity…Again

GoT3

Game of Thrones is arguably one of the best television series to hit cable in years.  It is a series that transcends genres, blending equal parts fantasy, action, and historical fiction, all while maintaining several storylines for audiences to bite into.  Two of the aspects that initially draw viewers to the series, however, are the depictions of sex and violence, which can be rather explicit and fairly realistic.  Those actors who decide to join the show are generally assumed to feel comfortable with this nudity and blood; after all, they did sign up for the series and one would assume that the actors would understand what they were getting into.  Well, for one Mother of Dragons, this isn’t the case, and actress Emilia Clarke has opted to skip nude scenes involving her character.  Well, now Clark has a few more words to say about sex on television and, as you may guess, they are not in support.

While Peter Dinklage has been killing it on Game of Thrones, his voice over work in Destiny has left quite a lot to be desired by players. Most chalked it up to the actor taking a job he really wasn’t interested in and when they lob great handfuls of cash in your face for a few hours work in a studio, who can blame him for cashing in. Yesterday the big 2.0 Destiny patch went live with the added replacement of Dinklage’s voice over work as Ghost by veteran voice actor Nolan North. How do the two compare? (more…)

Hey, do you remember Pinball – those coffin-shaped boxes where you hit a silver ball around a chaotic playfield? If you thought this game of skill died out in the 90’s, you’d be wrong. Sure, Pinball machines are no longer as prevalent in arcades, bowling alleys, or bars as they once were; but the culture of Pinball is alive and well. Despite the staggering decline in pinball gaming, new machines are being made all the time. Particularly to promote pop movie and television licenses; with such titles as: The Walking Dead, Avatar, The Hobbit, Star Trek, The Avengers and more.

Now another big license is making its way into Pinball form – which can be best set up by saying this: When you play the Game of Thrones Pinball Machine, you win or you die (Or, just… y’know, put another coin in). (more…)
