'Game of Thrones': George R. R. Martin Won't Write a Season 6 Episode

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

George R.R. Martin is getting pretty serious about finishing his last two novels in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Just a few weeks back, the creator of Game of Thrones revealed the disappointing news that he will not be attending the World Fantasy Convention or Comic-Con 2015 so that he can finish working on his sixth book entitled The Winds of Winter. Now, the author says he isn't going to write an episode for Game of Thrones Season 6, either. He explains:

""[A]fter wrestling with it for a month or so, I've decided not to script an episode for season six of Game of Thrones. Writing a script takes me three weeks, minimum, and longer when it is not a straight adaptation from the novels. And really, it would cost me more time than that, since I have never been good at changing gears from one medium to another and back again. »

New Featurette Explores The Stunts On Game Of Thrones Season 5

26 March 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A brand new behind-the-scenes featurette has been released to coincide with the return of Game Of Thrones to our screens next month. Season 5 of the award-winning HBO fantasy series is arguably the most anticipated premiere of the television year. Die-hard fans of the Seven Kingdoms are all counting down the days until the show’s bloody, violent and dramatic return – and now we can assuage some of those last-minute withdrawals.

This action-packed reel, dropped to the official Game Of Thrones YouTube, sizzles with a ton of new looks at the stunts behind the series. In addition to shedding a light on the intricacies of choreographing those labor-intensive fights, there are several new chunks of footage previously unseen. Check out the full clip above, and reacquaint yourself with the season 5 premise in the new synopsis below.

After all that sword-throwing, kicking and punching, who will survive the next ten episodes of Game Of Thrones? »

Behind the Stunts of Game Of Thrones Season 5

26 March 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Along with several million other people I am eagerly awaiting the premiere of Game of Thrones Season 5 next month. And while I typically don't go in for stunt reel stuff or any kind of behind-the-scenes action before I see something (for some reason I just prefer to watch the show and then delve into supplements later), this video released by HBO features some new footage and new faces and I think it's worth a look. Stunt coordinator Rowley Irlam certainly seems to have his hands full. Here's the synopsis for Game of Thrones Season 5: Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is struggling to balance the demands of the Night’s Watch with those of the newly arrived Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), who styles himself the rightful king of Westeros. Meanwhile, Cersei (Lena Headey) scrambles to hold on to power in King’s Landing amidst the Tyrells and the rise of a »

Emmys Mvp: Michael Kelly steps out of the shadows as 'House of Cards' fixer

25 March 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

During the first two seasons of "House of Cards," Michael Kelly provided solid work as Doug Stamper, the go-to fixer for now-president Frank Underwood, but in season three, Kelly outdoes himself, turning the role into one of the most consistently exciting characters on television. The Emmys have ignored the actor in the past, giving al their attention to stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, yet any voter who watches any one episode from this season would be crazy not to award Kelly with his first nomination for Best Drama Supporting Actor. -Break- Emmys Mvp: Kristen Schaal is secret weapon in success of 'The Last Man on Earth' But Kelly is currently ranked in eighth place by our Top 24 Users and ninth by All Users. Why so low? Blame it on a lack of name-recognition and heavy competition in the category: Kelly has to compete against last year's nominees »

24 March 2015 3:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Are you ready to slay monsters? If not, Chris Columbus will try to sway your opinion.

/Film reported that Columbus is attached to adapt I Kill Giants, based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Joe Kelly and J.M. Niimura. Oscar winner Anders Walter is directing, and Treehouse Pictures will finance.

Originally published as a limited series between 2008 and 2009, I Kill Giants centers around a young outsider named Barbara Thorson. Her inability to fit in makes her life difficult, and she copes by escaping into a fantasy in which giants are real and it’s her job to stop them.

Walter is known for his 2013 film Helium, which won Best Live-Action Short at the 2014 Academy Awards. According to the site, Kelly will write the script as well as produce. He is part of the Man of Action Entertainment writers collective that also includes Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle. »

Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner & More Stun at "Game of Thrones" Premiere in San Fran

24 March 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Recognize these lovely ladies without their blonde wigs, boyish clothes or regal attire? The stars of "Game of Thrones" hit the red carpet for the Season 5 premiere in San Francisco on Monday night, where they all ditched their characters' trademark looks for something a little more stylish. Gone was Khaleesi's now-infamous white hair, as Emilia Clarke matched her dark hair with a dark gown from Alexander McQueen. She paired the look with a bold red lip. Clarke's dramatic appearance was in stark contrast -- no pun intended -- to Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, who turned heads in light and colorful creations for the premiere. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) and Carine Van Houten (Melisandre) also showed off their fashion-forward makeovers at the event. But it wasn't just the women who proved how different they all look in real life. While Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau »

'Game of Thrones' TV Series Will Spoil Unpublished Books

23 March 2015 3:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The countdown towards Season 5 of Game of Thrones continues, with just under three weeks left until the season premiere "The Wars to Come" debuts Sunday, April 12 at 9 Pm Et on HBO. Aside from all of the narrative questions fans have been asking in the lead-up to this season, many are also wondering if Season 5 will actually spoil certain moments from George R.R. Martin's last two books in his A Song of Fire and Ice series, which have yet to be published. While we wait to see when these books will finally arrive, series co-creator David Benioff revealed that they have been talking with the author for quite some time, and they know where he is heading, and that does means certain aspects of these unpublished books will be spoiled for readers. Take a look at what he had to say below, during an appearance at The Oxford Union with »

Game of Thrones Season 5 Premiere: 'There's Some Really Dark Stuff Coming'

19 March 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Send a raven. Game of Thrones is back. And there couldn't possibly have been a more fitting location for Wednesday night's season 5 world premiere than the Tower of London. Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer and Charles Dance were among the stars from the acclaimed HBO fantasy drama who brought Westeros to London, where the walls of the "Bloody Tower" were emblazoned with illuminated projections of dragons and flames that flickered along the red carpet. Even the much-coveted Iron Throne found its way to to the historic fortress, which just happens to be circled by ravens - though not the three-eyed kind. »
