Game Of Thrones

Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones is simply delightful. Her Social Media presence should be a rule book for young celebrities on how to handle fame and fans. This time she’s teamed up with NYLON Magazine to prank some Game of Thrones fans as they shop at their local gaming store. Just imagine walking into your local shop and finding someone very familiar looking behind the counter. (more…)

The night is darker and still full of terrors in this latest Game of Thrones season six trailer. In fact, things look down right terrifying for a lot of our favorite characters. With only two weeks until the May 24th return of HBO‘s Game of Thrones, we’re going to see the Internet full of Game of Thrones hype and thankfully, as this trailer suggests, the show is going to deliver.

If we have to be perfectly honest, we think it’s weird it didn’t happen sooner. Game Of Thrones took the entirety of nerdom (and a whole lot of normies) along for one heck of a ride since its very first aired episode and its high production values, as well as its associated publication drama, would give it tons of points to go over and add to the show’s already huge hype. Apparently, HBO thought so too, six years into the most successful grim and gritty fantasy series ever, which led them to announce…

We’ve learned about the dynamics behind Daenerys’ dragons, and now we’re getting a closer look at the workings of a White Walker.  To be more specific, Game of ThronesYoutube channel uploaded a behind the scenes video of the making of the prostheses for the show.  The pieces aren’t only used exclusively on White Walkers, but it seems they undergo the most prosthetic-wise.  And after watching the video, you may notice that it looks almost as painstaking to stay in that getup all day as it looks to create it!  Prosthetic Designer for Game of Thrones Barrie Gower narrates the short video, which clocks in at just under 4 minutes.  He explains the artistic process behind creating the prostheses, from getting the briefing of a character, to creating a design concept that’s practical enough to be worn all day.

Just the other day, it was reported that HBO would disallowing any advance screeners to press outlets, or anyone for that matter, for Game of Thrones Season 6. For those unaware, this is typically a tactic movie studios do when they’re not confident with their product and want to impede early negative press from the media. Never has this done by a TV Network – it’s unprecedented. And before you freak out, it has nothing to do with Season 6 sucking and everything to do with preventing spoilers. GoT is one, if not the highest, illegally downloaded TV series in history. With season 6 venturing into uncharted territory – going beyond the book series – the Network, cast, and creatives are trying their darnedest to keep a tight lid on things.

All the these efforts, and what happens? An actor goes and accidentally ruins things. (more…)

Is it really that shocking that the folks over at Game of Thrones would make an unprecedented move? HBO has announced that no advanced screeners will be going out to any press outlets during season 6 of GOT. It’s a move sometimes pulled by film studios expecting poor critic reviews, but in the realm of major tv series, this is a first.  Especially after the first 4 episodes of GOT‘s season 5 found its way to torrent sites last year, it’s understandable that HBO would amp up their security measures. Plus, with all of the loose ends we were left with last season (mainly the fate of Jon Snow), it would be a shame if any plot points were spoiled. (more…)

Some fans are a little worried about spoilers going into this season of Game of Thrones; and understandably so.  The HBO series has surpassed the events of the most recently released installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire series: aka, their source material.  George R.R. Martin, author of the series, assures fans that there will be some events in the book that will be virtually impossible for the show to spoil. (more…)

Grim fantasy. Now there’s a term most nerds never expected to make it into the mainstream. By the early 00’s, if you ever told a fantasy nerd that the dark and pessimistic Song Of Ice And Fire would become a mega-hit series and make mainstream incest jokes a thing, you’d have been laughed off every convention but now, with Game Of Thrones ready to break new ground (what with the Song Of Winter‘s irrevocable delay) everyone is waiting for Season 6 to take the biggest narrative leap of faith yet! At least, if the recently released teaser is anything to go by…

Yesterday, HBO announced the return date for the Emmy Award-winning series Game of Thrones (that’s Sunday April 24 in case you missed it). Today, the talk is about the more distant future, life for Thrones beyond season six, and the talk is fairly certain that there’s still a lot of life left in this show. And why wouldn’t there be? It’s one of the most popular shows on television, it’s got a huge fan base, the adulation of TV critics, lots of awards consideration, and on top of it all, its the most pirated show on the internet. For all those reasons, and more, HBO isn’t ready to give up Game of Thrones yet. (more…)

Writing fiction is hard work. Writing an actual fantasy hit series is probably very much like breaking rocks in the hot sun while being pelted with snarling ferrets. Despite claims made that the latest book in his Song Of Ice And Fire series would be published in time for Game Of Thrones’ Season 6 premiere in April, George R. R. Martin prefaced his latest blog post stating some not so good news.  (more…)
