With the season four premiere date, April 13th, fast approaching for HBO and George R.R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones, we all expected to see at least one interesting, out of the box, marketing gambit to increase the already immense fan base watching the show.

HBO aired a 15 minute preview/primer/on-set visit video last night that just might be the thing for those Ice and Fire fans Jonesing for a taste of George R.R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones world. *Insert standard spoiler alert here, but go ahead and just ignore that because the last 5 seconds of the video are FREAKING INCREDIBLE!!! (more…)
What isn’t there to love about Game of Thrones? Epic scale, a huge cast, beloved source material, amazing actors, glorious violence, and one other thing, hardcore nudity! The, um, relaxed standards of HBO are indeed a – ahem – beautiful thing, but Thrones actor Stephen Dillane says it’s par for the course, because you might come (ban pun) for the nudity, but you stay for one of the most compelling and lively series currently on TV.

The trio, George R.R. Martin, Lena Heady, and Michelle Fairley recently sat down at the Sydney Opera House for a 90 minute roundtable discussion of Game of Thrones. This one is worth setting aside the time of your busy day. (more…)
When a creative property is ultra-popular – particularly “cult” properties – there is always the risk that someone, somewhere will attempt to keep it going in an effort to make more cash money.

Hell, there are billions of fan-fics all over the Internetz that attest to the fact that people won’t let Harry Potter die. But one author has stepped forward to openly say that he wants his legacy to end with his death – George R.R. Martin. (more…)
Originally screened at SDCC 2013, this deleted scene from HBO‘s Game of Thrones is a fantastic look at two of the series characters and how they both operate in George R.R. Martin‘s fantastic world of fire and ice. There’s the all-powerful head of the Lannister family Tywin (Charles Dance), who always gets things the way he wants, when he wants them and bugger anyone who gets in his way; and the other, Grand Maester Pycelle (Julian Glover), the much quieter, yet just as deadly player working behind the scenes in the power struggle that is the Game of Thrones.
Take a moment and watch the video, you won’t be disappointed. If a series can be graded by the quality of its deleted scenes, GOT would definitely make any top ten list. Season 4 of GOT will hit the airwaves in the Spring of 2014, get a quick fix for that GOT itch and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
