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? »

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 »

Thanks to her breakout role as Daenerys Targaryen in HBO's Game Of Thrones, British actress Emilia Clarke has a very promising big-screen career ahead of her. Though she has appeared in a few movies already (including Shackled and Dom Hemingway), her biggest role to date is undoubtedly that of Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator: Genisys. In the following video interview, Clarke fills us in on how she's adapting to the Hollywood limelight, and also discusses this new incarnation of the "mother of the future", who has been played twice already by Linda Hamilton in the original James Cameron films, and by Clarke's Thrones cast-mate Lena Headey in the Sarah Connor Chronicles TV series. The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human »
Back in December, HBO released a series of brief and vague clips from Season 5 of Game of Thrones, one of which appeared to show the door of The House of Black and White in Braavos. Last night, series star Maisie Williams appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where she unveiled a new clip that showed Arya finally making it to The House of Black and White. At the end of Season 4, Arya set sail for Braavos, across the Narrow Sea, and this clip shows that her plan may have been in vain all along. Here's what she had to say on Jimmy Kimmel Live! about this scene.
"The new season for Arya is totally different than what we've seen before. She's in a completely new location, and you see the doors were black and white, and anyone who's read the books knows that's a really exciting place for her to be. »
For every Harry Potter or Hunger Games series, there are those franchises that didn't quite set the world on fire...
Since Insurgent came out, I’ve been thinking about those less fortunate: the franchise wannabes. While Divergent may have succeeded financially, (a film that rode on the coat-tails of the even more lucrative The Hunger Games franchise) there are others who didn’t quite make it into the movie world’s big leagues. These are the franchise-starters that flopped, the films produced with the optimistic hope that they will bring in the readies and kick-start Hollywood’s latest franchise. Worse luck for them, really.
For the sake of simplicity, this list will zero in on Ya franchise-starters, films adapted from a young adult novel or with that audience in mind. There are plenty of more mature films that struggled such as Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time, The A-Team »
She's an open book. Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey opened up to More magazine in its April 2015 cover story about grappling with "massive grief" following her divorce from ex-husband Peter Loughran. The star, 41, was married to the musician for six years before the parents to 5-year-old son Wylie finalized their divorce in 2013. Two years later, Headey is still coming to terms with the split. "It’s tough," she told the mag. "There’s a lot of hurt and sadness and disappointment. Grief. Massive grief. It’s [...] »
Lena Headey has dealt with a roller coaster of emotions in the last few years, but the Game of Thrones star has found a way to bounce back. The brunette beauty filed for divorce from her husband (and father of 5-year-old son Wylie) Peter Loughran back in 2012, and now during an interview with More magazine (on newsstands now), the 41-year-old HBO star explains how she got through the difficult time and how she's coping now. "It's tough," she said of ending her marriage. "There's a lot of hurt and sadness and disappointment. Grief. Massive grief. It's a mourning process, and yet nobody's died." And Headey didn't shy away from revealing that she had her experiences with »
Take the themes of love, power and revenge - stir in two gruesome murders, a prophecy of death and enough sexual innuendo to burn down the whole of Westeros - and there you have the first episode of Game of Thrones season 5 (spoiler alert). Everyone's favorite naughty dwarf, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) is safe after killing his dad and his lover and getting smuggled out of Westeros by Varys (Conleth Hill). Varys tries to persuade Tyrion to follow a new leader: "Westeros needs to be saved from itself," Varys says. He seems to favor the white-haired beauty Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke »

Game Of Thrones feels as if it's slowly building towards an eventual climax in the impressive season 5 opener, The Wars To Come...
Five years in, what can meaningfully be said about a Game Of Thrones season premiere? That it looks and feels spectacular. That its cast was clearly picked from the top of the pile. That there’s nothing even close to its scale or budget on television. At this point though, doesn’t all that go without saying?
After four exemplary and expensive seasons, we’ve come to expect great things from HBO’s flagship as a matter of course. Impressive world-building, seamless special effects, forensically choreographed action, scares, laughs, pathos… The season five opener has it all, exactly as anticipated.
(HBO would hardly have tricked out the Tower Of London with all the trappings of last night's glitzy premiere if the episode was a dud. You could say »

With just under one month left until the Season 5 premiere of HBO's Game of Thrones, the network has released two new clips, one of which reveals why the episode is entitled "The Wars to Come". The first scene features Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), who escaped from Westeros at the end of Season 4, conversing with the man who helped him get out of King's Landing, Lord Varys (Conleth Hill). Since Varys is not related to the Lannisters in any way, Tyrion asks him why he arranged the escape. Varys reveals that he did what he did for the good of the realm, and that a man of Tyrion's talents will be needed in "the wars to come."
The second clip takes us north of the Wall, with Jon Snow (Kit Harington) talking to Mance Rayder (Ciarán Hinds) about pride. This clip also references that Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and his »
HBO has released two preview clips from “Game of Thrones” season five, along with a slew of new photos that include a first look at Oberyn Martell’s (Pedro Pascal) deadly daughters, The Sand Snakes, who are out for revenge after their father’s gruesome murder at the hands of The Mountain (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson) last season. The images also feature Cersei Lannister’s (Lena Headey) daughter Myrcella Baratheon (Nell Tiger Free), who is currently in Dorne, where she is expected to marry Oberyn’s nephew, Prince Trystane Martell (Toby Sebastian) when she comes of age.
Watch the season five sneak peeks below:
The first preview clip sees Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) discussing his unlikely escape from King’s Landing with Lord Varys (Conleth Hill), who freed him from the Red Keep because Tyrion’s brother Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) asked him to — but was that the only reason for Varys’ uncharacteristic altruism? »

As yesterday’s formal HBO Now announcement showed, the cable channel’s array of original programming has become enticing enough for many to allow for its own streaming service.
Among the channel’s more successful series is the sprawling fantasy tale Game of Thrones.
Adapted from George Rr Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series by showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the show is set to make its fifth season premiere on April 12th at 9 pm Est, with a sixth season already guaranteed by HBO.
Regular castmembers Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, and Natalie Dormer will return once again, with Kristian Nairn and Isaac Hempstead-Wright departing, and castmembers Alexander Siddig, Keisha Castle-Hughes, and Jonathan Pryce joining the series, among others.
Alongside the announcement of the channel’s new streaming service, a new trailer for the upcoming season was released on Apple, in which Daenerys ominously threatens to smash the wheel of power. »

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.
Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.
Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.
Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their »
Earlier this week, we revealed new deleted scenes from Game of Thrones: The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray and DVD, which was released earlier this week. While fans continue the long wait for Season 5, we have a new gag reel from the hit HBO series, which features stars such as Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and many more screwing up their lines and even losing their balance.
In Season 4, while the Lannisters' hold on the Iron Throne remains intact, new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east threaten to tip the scales. As Stannis Baratheon and Daenerys Targaryen continue to grow their respective armies, the arrival of the Lannister-loathing "Red Viper of Dorne" poses a more immediate danger. In the north, the depleted Night's Watch seems overmatched against the advances of Mance Rayder's army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even »
Apparently you can cover a lot in just 10 minutes with Blumhouse Productions head honcho Jason Blum. With his latest flick, "The Lazarus Effect" starring Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass, hitting theaters next week, the producer sat down with toofab's Brian Particelli to talk about pretty much everything his company is working on right now. The Blumhouse production slate is pretty packed, with sequels lined up for "Paranormal Activity," "The Purge" and "Sinister," a film adaptation of the '80s cartoon "Jem and the Holograms" and a TV series based on another book from "Gone Girl" author Gillian Flynn. Check out the full Q&A below! toofab: "The Lazarus Effect," "Insidious 3," "Paranormal Activity 5," "Sinister 2," there's a lot of horror coming from you guys, but also "Jem and the Holograms."

For those who aren't quite caught up with HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, The Complete Fourth Season Blu-ray and DVD was released today, giving fans just under two months to get up to speed before Season 5 debuts April 12. If you haven't gotten a chance to pick up your copy quite yet, HBO has released two deleted scenes that weren't featured during the show's Season 4 run last year. The first scene features Bronn (Jerome Flynn) telling a distraught Shae (Sibel Kekilli) that it's time for her to adapt, after Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) dismisses her, while the second scene features Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) warning Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) to never betray her.

HBO’s most talked about series returns this April, so what better way to get up-to-date and in the Got mood before the new season begins than by watching the Season 4 Blu-ray or DVD.
