Winter is finally here, and so too has Game of Thrones already reached its finale. Season 7 is ready to launch us into its last episodes with a finale trailer that brings just about everyone to the table for the first time since Season 1.
The Night King was largely absent from Sunday’s Game of Thrones premiere, save one update that the icy undead have zombie giants in their midst. One giant in particular seemed awfully familiar to fans, to which director Jeremy Podeswa offers a (slight) explanation.
HBO’s Westworld managed to keep a tight lid on its main story (until roughly the second episode), but Season 2 has a great many questions worth investigating until 2018. We can consider at least one of those mysteries solved, as a Season 1 star confirms they’ll be back for Season 2, albeit in an unknown capacity.
We can barely handle the anticipation of one new Game of Thrones season, let alone four, but since when does George R.R. Martin do anything small? The notoriously labored writer reveals there’s even a fifth potential spinoff in development, in the process dispelling a few fan-favorite ideas like Dunk and Egg.
Those celebrating 420 won’t be the only ones blowing smoke today. Game of Thrones Season 7 looks ready to burn it all down in our first official photos from the July premiere, and no ice block will stand in our way this time.
Dystopian cinema is all the rage right now. Not only is the release of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale only a few days away, we were also recently treated to a series of synchronized screenings of 1984, the film adaptation of George Orwell’s seminal novel. While some may view this as a collective piece of cinematic snark, plenty of others are using these projects as an opportunity to open the door for increased education and awareness about media literacy, politics, and art. And while HBO may only really be interested in art and politics, it is putting one foot firmly in the dystopian game, announcing an upcoming production of Ray Bradbury’s Farenheit 451.
Yesterday brought the very first teaser for Game of Thrones Season 7, which was especially exciting after HBO forced us to watch a block of ice melt for an hour. It featured Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), and Cersei (Lena Headey) all making their way towards their respective thrones. It was an awesome little tease, but the music in the trailer? Not the greatest.
No longer must Game of Thrones fans stare at a block of ice for a CG teaser: Season 7 is here! See Cersei, Daenerys and Jon Snow get some fresh threads in a new “Long Walk” teaser for the July premiere, complete with chilly twist.
It’s taken this long for Game of Thrones to confirm a Season 7 premiere, and lips might finally now be loosening. Straight out of SXSW, Thrones bosses David Benioff and Dan Weiss confirm an even shorter episode order for the eighth and final season.
Winter may have arrived in Westeros, but Game of Thrones is finally melting the ice with a summer premiere. At long last, Season 7 has been confirmed for an official July premiere, as revealed during a special, lengthy ice-breaking live event.
