If ‘Game of Thrones’ Can’t Win an Emmy in 2017, What Does That Mean For HBO?

7 July 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

HBO is facing the worst sort of weather delay — one that may keep “Game of Thrones” from competing in the 2017 Emmys race. But that might be good news for its other programming.

In an interview with the Ufc Unfiltered podcast and picked up across many outlets,  showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss admitted that production on Season 7 would begin later this year because now that “winter is here,” they’ll need to wait for actual physical winter before they begin shooting. As a result, the show’s typical April premiere date is unlikely.

Right now, the exact length of Season 7 is unconfirmed. But it’s expected that the final two seasons will likely be shorter, between 13-15 episodes total, as opposed to 20. The shortened order could mean that “Thrones” might still make it under the deadline: If an eight-episode Season 7 is able to premiere on Sunday, May 7, 2017, four episodes would »

Thandie Newton Shares Story Of Being Sexually Abused By Unnamed Director

2 July 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Since the beginning of Thandie Newton’s career, the actress has always been attracted to difficult roles that explore themes about race and violence against women. This could be because of an incident that occurred in the beginning of her career that made her want to stand up for herself.

In a recent interview with W Magazine, the “Westworld” actress recalled when she was sexually abused as a teen by a male director during an audition. 

“A director, on a callback, had a camera shooting up my skirt and asked me to touch my tits and think about the guy making love to me in the scene,” she said. “I thought, ‘Ok, this is a little weird,’ but there was a female casting director in the room and I’d done weird stuff before so I did it.”

Then years later, a drunk producer at a film festival approached her »

Westworld: Evan Rachel Wood Says Viewers Have No Idea What’s Coming; HBO Details Comic-Con Plans

29 June 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If HBO viewers are frantically pursuing something to watch now that Game of Thrones has wrapped up for season 6, Westworld will hope to fill that void and then some when Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s sci-fi series makes its bow later in 2016.

Truth be told, it’s been a long and meandering road for the Western series, after production ground to a halt so that HBO could reportedly iron out creative differences that threatened to derail its serialized spin on the 1973 film of the same name.

That said, the Westworld bound for the small-screen is decidedly different than Michael Crichton’s thrilling classic, and leading star Evan Rachel Wood told Collider that viewers have no idea what’s coming.

“I’m also tickled at how little people know. All the expectations and the guesses I’ve heard are not even in the ball park. So, I love that people »

Intense new trailer for HBO’s Westworld unveiled

19 June 2016 11:36 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As was promised, HBO delivered a brand new teaser trailer for Westworld, their long-awaited science fiction western based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 feature film of the same name, before the latest episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday. The intense trailer, which is now online, can be viewed below…

If it weren’t for the multiple production delays that the project faced last year, it’s very much possible that HBO would have been well into airing the first season of Westworld by now, if not completely finished with it. Regardless, the network now has the show’s debut episode slated for a not-too-far-off October 2016 release date.

With the end in sight for Game of Thrones, loyal HBO viewers will be looking for a new show to cling onto once the land of Westeros is retired, and Westworld could potentially fill that void. The trailer alone teases a universe that looks fun, »

New Trailer For HBO’s Westworld Is Creepy And Intriguing

19 June 2016 7:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Coming to HBO this fall is perhaps one of the year’s most anticipated shows, Westworld. With Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams on board as executive producers, and Michael Crichton penning the novel that the series is based on, there’s certainly good reason to be excited for this one. And judging by the new trailer that dropped online today, that excitement is definitely justified.

Creepy, dark and wholly intriguing, the clip takes us into the futuristic theme park that the show revolves around, giving us a look at some of the horrors that await. It’s hard to make out exactly what’s going on beneath the surface here, but the footage teases a sinister series, one that will also dive into some thought provoking questions about artificial intelligence.

Whether or not Westworld has the potential to be another Game of Thrones type juggernaut for the network remains to be seen. »

HBO has been taking its time with this one, but now we’re finally getting a deeper look at Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s “Westworld,” based on the 1973 Michael Crichton film and executive produced by J.J. Abrams. What we’ve seen previously hints at something truly surreal, “questioning the nature of our reality.” And the trailer below, which premiered tonight before the latest episode of “Game of Thrones,” does pull back the nature of the dream in place — and how it may not be real.
