Official Art And Set Photos Reveal Arya Stark’s New Look In 5th Season Of ‘Game of Thrones’

- 12-19-14Books, TV Posted by Derek Robertson

Arya Stark

Arya Stark has been spending most of the past few seasons on Game of Thrones on the run inboynito. Ever since fleeing the capital with the help of Yoren (Night’s Watch recruiter), by chopping her locks and disguising her as an orphan boy named “Arry,” she has been trying to make it home every since. Bumping into all sorts of trouble along the way including; Ser Gregor Clegane (becoming a cup bearer for Tywin Lannister), Brotherhood Without Banners, and Sandor Clegane, Arya eventually finds herself filling the shoes of her fake persona – becoming a hardened, brutal killer, doing what is necessary in order to survive. Throughout this whole period, Arya and Clegane become scavengers, and they aren’t exactly the cleanest of people travelling across Westeros. Futhermore, we are left at the end of Season 4 with Arya leaving an injured Clegane and aboarding a ship for that’s heading towards Braavos, and that only means one thing folks! (more…)

George R.R. Martin Will Have His Own ‘Interview’ Screening (with Black Jack and Hookers)

Probably not with the Black Jack and Hookers, but George R.R. Martin is fightin’ mad about Sony Pictures‘ move to cancel the release of The Interview. Now opinions, as they say, are like @$$holes – everyone’s got one – and while Sony has been chastised for kowtowing to terrorists rather than standing up for artistic expression, corporations always side on the option of least resistance. In this instance, that means weighing the potentiality of something happening against the likelihood that anything will happen, and Sony says better safe than sorry. But what will happen to The Interview? Last night on The Daily Show, Chris Rock affirmed that The Interview will get a release, and if it does, George R.R. Martin, author of the Game of Thrones series of books, will be happy to provide it a venue. (more…)

The Crazy ‘Game of Thrones’ Tyrion Theory That Changes Everything

- 11-21-14Books, TV Posted by Mark Poynter

tyrion1

One of the interesting and fun things I love about fandoms is the periods between seasons and episodes when fans gather to discuss the series details, spin and speculate about why things happened, and what might possibly happen next. George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones has loads of fan interaction from both the book readers and the HBO television series watchers, often those fans being one and the same. Now we’d like to present you with one fan’s theory, feel free to insert “crazy” or the adjective of your choice in there, about everyone’s favorite wine drinking and whoring Lannister, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). Prepare to have your Game of Thrones mind blown! (more…)

The Cast Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Is Killing & Having Sex All The Way To The Bank

more fun times

I feel bad for anyone who isn’t a die hard fan of HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones.’ The last two seasons have been so beautifully scripted, so wonderfully acted, that it’s a real pain having to wait a year for the show’s return. That’s the one thing I’d change about the series – the mammoth waits for new seasons. But it’s proven itself worth the wait lately, what with all its Emmy Awards from Qarth to the Moon Door. It’s an incredible series that’s hitting all the right notes, but don’t take my word for it – ask the cast how awesome their show is. I’m sure with the huge pay upgrades they just received, they’ll have nothing but nice things to say about their jobs. (more…)

While it wasn’t the first role that Jason Momoa played on television, his portrayal of Khal Drogo in HBO‘s Game of Thrones is truly the role that thrust him into the public conscience. Now the creative mind behind that character George R. R. Martin is ready to share his thoughts on Momoa’s latest casting success as Aquaman in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and his own stand alone movie Aquaman. (more…)
