Game of Thrones: Season Five Ratings

15 April 2015 8:40 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

There's certainly no danger of this HBO series being cancelled. Game of Thrones has already been renewed through season six and it's the cable channel's most popular series. Last season's ratings were up by about 40%. Will the numbers continue to soar or will they slip? Stay tuned.

Based on the best-selling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Thrones is an epic story of treachery and nobility in a savage world -- a place where summers and winters can last for years and the lust for power is eternal.

The large cast includes Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Aidan Gillen, Natalie Dormer, Stephen Dillane, Liam Cunningham, Carice van Houten, Indira Varma, Alfie Allen, John Bradley-West, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Kristofer Hivju, Hannah Murray, Conleth Hill, Gwendoline Christie, Jerome Flynn, Michiel Huisman, Nathalie Emmanuel, Dean-Charles Chapman, Tom Wlaschiha, Iwan »

‘Game of Thrones’ Executive Producers: ‘We’re Heading Into the Home Stretch’

15 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s nearly impossible to quantify the ways in which HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has reinvented the fantasy genre on television. Now in its fifth season, the HBO juggernaut has garnered massive ratings and millions of fans worldwide. There’s truly something for everyone, with death, romance, sex, family feuds, epic battles, and a trio of fire-breathing dragons.

But back in 2005, screenwriters David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were a pair of untested showrunners who’d fallen in love with George R.R. Martin’s epic series. They pitched themselves to the novelist over a lengthy lunch at Hollywood’s Palm that stretched out into dinner. When they passed his pop quiz — correctly answering “Who is Jon Snow’s mother?”— they won the right to convert the novels into a TV series.

Yet their road from fans to filmmakers wasn’t always a smooth one. Here, they recount their crash course »

Animated 'Angry Birds' Movie Reportedly Carries $186 Million Budget

14 April 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The only reason I'm writing about this is to let you know this isn't all that much of a story, though you are going to see it reported around the Internet as if it is. We all knew about the animated Angry Birds movie, which will be released by Sony on July 1, 2016, based on the mobile video game from Rovio. Now, in a report from Cineuropa (via The Playlist) they say the film carries a ?75 million production budget, accompanied by a marketing and distribution budget of approximately ?100 million. Carry the one, subtract two, throw it in a converter and that ends up being about $186 million U.S. dollars. I can hear you saying, "That's over $100 million more than Paramount and Nickelodeon spent on The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water and even more than the $135 million Dreamworks spent on Home," but hold on... just hooooooold on. Note the fact this »

Game of Thrones Season Five – Episode 1 Review

13 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the first episode of Game of Thrones Season Five….

The Wars to Come. Directed by Michael Slovis. Written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.  

Cersei

Season five opens on a flashback, the first one ever in Game of Thrones. These opening prologues have prized place in George R. R. Martin’s books, either introducing new characters or telling self-contained stories that become significant later on. They help ease you back into his gory, kinky world.

The flashback is Cersei’s (Lena Headey), who will become an even more central character in season five (the fourth book, on which her storyline in this series is based, is the first one with chapters written from her perspective). It shows a witch telling a young Cersei her future, that “another queen, younger and more beautiful” would replace her. Which explains all the Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) hate.

Game of Thrones, Ep. 5.01 “The Wars to Come” promises exciting new alliances

Game of Thrones, Season 5, Episode 1: “The Wars to Come”

Directed by Michael Slovis

Written by David Benioff and Db Weiss

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on HBO

After four extraordinary seasons, we’ve come to expect great things from HBO’s flagship series – shocking betrayals, strategic realignments, reversals of fortune, impressive world-building, damsels in distress, femme fatales, epic battles, well choreographed action, blood, death, sex, black magic, dragons and lots of nudity in between the dirty politics. “The Wars to Come” (a line heard several times throughout the episode) was a solid, modest season opener, but as with every season premiere, there seems to be something lacking. The cast of Game of Thrones is comprised of some of the most talented actors on the small screen, and over the years we’ve been blessed with the likes of Charles Dance, Peter Dinklage, Diana Rigg and Sean Bean, to name »

‘Game of Thrones 5×01: The Wars To Come’ Review

13 April 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“The future is shit, just like the past.”

Tyrion Lannister punctuates his brief thesis on the value of life by bending over to vomit.  In an episode that begins with a young Cersei slogging through what looks like a mixture of mud and offal and ends with a man being burned alive after leading his people out of the frozen north, it’s a point that bears thinking on.  The future isn’t better just because it’s new, and the past isn’t rosy just because it’s over.  (Though no matter which set of sins he’s mired in remembering, Peter Dinklage can still crack a great one-liner).

Dwelling on the inherent crappiness of life isn’t exactly a guaranteed home run in terms of dramatic pacing, but “The Wars to Come” handles it without devolving into maudlin tears or too much domino-setting.  That isn’t to say the episode crackles, »

Game Of Thrones season 5 episode 1 review: The Wars To Come

13 April 2015 12:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The big players of Westeros are scrambling for position in a vacuum of power. Here's our review of Game Of Thrones' season 5 opener...

This review contains spoilers. Read our spoiler-free review of the episode, here.

5.1 The Wars To Come

One of the things that is most interesting about Game Of Thrones is just how consistently the show has stuck to its time line. There's never been a flashback or a flash-forward or any other flash, aside from flashes of genitals from time to time. However, with every show, things must change, and one of the big changes for Game Of Thrones is a break from that flashback-free status. Of course, it helps that the first flashback we get involves a very young Cersei Lannister, who is instantly recognizable as herself even when played by Nell Williams instead of Lena Headey. Little Cersei drags a friend to go see a »

Meryl Streep finally adds an MTV Movie Award to her over-stuffed mantle

12 April 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Meryl Streep has three Oscars and 19 nominations. Something she didn't have coming into this weekend? An MTV Movie Award. Well, she can cross that one off the ole' bucket list. Awards season's truly dominant champion took home a Golden Popcorn statue for Best Villain at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards Sunday. Her performance in the musical "Into the Woods" beat out Oscar winner J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") as well as Jillian Bell ("22 Jump Street"), Peter Dinklage ("X-Men: Days of Future Past") and Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike ("Gone Girl"). While Streep may be a perennial fixture on the Oscar circuit, though, this was only her second MTV nomination to date. She was also nominated in the Best Villain category eight years ago for "The Devil Wears Prada," which also netted her an Oscar nomination. And a fun fact: She lost that year to fellow Oscar magnet Jack Nicholson ("The Departed"). More from the »
