Game of Thrones: Jon Snow Calls for a United Front in New Season 7 Footage

21 June 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s time to put aside those silly Iron Throne-thirsty differences — and quickly — Jon Snow urges in a new Game of Thrones trailer, because the enemy is real, and “it’s always been real.”

Ned Stark’s Rhaegar Targaryen’s valiant son seems to be speaking to Westeros’ warring Stark, Lannister and Targaryen clans as he says, “For centuries, our families fought together against their common enemy. Despite their differences, together. We need to do the same if we’re going to survive.”

Blu-ray Review: Serial Mom Collector’s Edition

15 June 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Is Serial Mom John Waters’ best movie?

On the bonus features of the new Scream Factory Blu-ray, the legendary writer/director says that it is. And who am I to disagree? While I think Hairspray is still his most commercially accessible film—there’s a reason it was turned into a hit broadway musical, then adapted for both the big and small screen—Serial Mom is, like Brian De Palma’s adaptation of The Untouchables, a brilliant marriage of a commercial aesthetic and the filmmaker’s true voice. It’s a movie that can appeal to everyone while still being very much a John Waters movie, and for that alone it must be considered a huge success.

Kathleen Turner plays Beverly Sutphin, an idealized 1950s-style housewife with the perfect American family: her husband (Sam Waterston) is a successful dentist and her two teenage kids (Matthew Lillard and Ricki Lake) are happy and well-adjusted. »

Martin Freeman Developing Paradise Lost, Described As A Biblical Game Of Thrones

13 June 2017 6:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As any fan of HBO’s smash hit series can tell you, the battle for the Iron Throne is nearing its end. Yes, Game of Thrones is gearing up to premiere its penultimate season in July and there’s not long left now until it reaches its conclusion. While spinoffs are being planned, there will probably never be anything quite like David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ tremendous show for a very long time. That doesn’t mean that other projects won’t try to emulate its success though, and already a couple of new series are firing up in hopes of becoming the next big fantasy hit.

One such effort is Paradise Lost, which is being described as a “biblical Game of Thrones.” An adaptation of John Milton’s epic poem “first published in 1667 and detailing the biblical story of the Fall of Man,” Sherlock‘s Martin Freeman is on »

Game Of Thrones Sets Record For...Setting People On Fire?

7 June 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If anticipation could be measured, it’s safe to say HBO’s Game of Thrones would hold the record. Until the time when that becomes possible, the show will have to settle for a different record, that being setting the most people on fire for an entertainment production. Fans must be drooling at the mere sound of this as it implies Daenerys has let her pets loose and they’re just torching the s**t out of everything in sight. Showrunner David Benioff spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the world record:

“In one battle scene we set more stuntmen on fire than have ever been simultaneously set on fire. Our stunt coordinator really wanted to get in the Guinness Book of World Records for this.”

While there isn’t a current record holder, as Guiness doesn’t keep track of these types of things, stunt-coordinator Rowley Irlam, who has seen »

TV Adaptations Must Figure Out When to Go by the Book — or Risk Fan Frenzy

5 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Deciding to adapt a book into a TV series is easy. Figuring out how to do it is a lot trickier.

Among the many questions creative teams need to resolve: How many episodes should there be? Does the story need to be updated? Should they try to broaden it to attract an even bigger audience? How closely should they follow the book?

After all, built-in book audiences are a large part of their appeal as adaptation material. Deviate too far from the novel and its core audience might cry foul.

Having recently adapted a beloved movie for TV, Warren Littlefield knew the inherent risks, and challenges, to doing the same for an iconic novel. But he was blown away by Bruce Miller’s take on Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” so he boarded the TV adaptation, one of several lit newbies this season along with “Big Little Lies,” “American Gods »

With the second-to-last season of Game of Thrones set to premiere in July, HBO has shared some more details about the prequel spin-off that will follow the series' Season 8 conclusion.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys said, "Making Game of Thrones as good as possible is the Number One goal, and then we'll see about these [spin-off] scripts. You're not going to see a situation where the next show in the Thrones universe launches off the back of this one."

Game Of Thrones Season 8 May Not Premiere Until 2019, Finale Won’t Launch Spinoffs

2 June 2017 4:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Strip away the ostentatious throne rooms and inspiring tales of valor and it’s fair to say that the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros have been built on a blood-drenched foundation of sprawling wars, treason and fallen dynasties.

The end result is enough drama to fuel Game of Thrones, HBO’s fantasy flagship that’s now teetering on the verge of its seventh (and perhaps best?) season on the airwaves. Excitement is palpable, particularly now that the show-stopping first trailer has found its way online. But that scintillating teaser wasn’t the only Game of Thrones promo to hit the interwebs over the past few weeks, as Entertainment Weekly also gathered together some of the show’s many power players for a rather wonderful cover shoot.

As is often the case, those action shots were accompanied by a smattering of interviews with the likes of D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, along »

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Could Air In 2019

2 June 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

If you thought moving Season 7 of Game of Thrones a few months was hard to stomach, then get ready, because you may be in for a big surprise.

With Season 7 fast approaching, and only 13 total episodes remaining for the series as a whole, it may feel like things are really winding down, but from a filmmaking standpoint for showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Recently, EW had a chance to speak with Casey Bloys, the programming president at HBO, and in that conversation, he discussed the impending end of the series, and when asked if it could potentially air in 2019, he said:

“Yeah. They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule. We’ll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.”Related: Game Of Thrones Season 7 Will Ramp Up The Pacing From Previous Seasons

Is there a dragon equivalent for #Droughtlander?

Game of Thrones‘ eighth and final season may not air until 2019, HBO programming president Casey Bloys says in a recent interview with EW.com.

Weiss have yet to write episodes or determine production schedules for Thrones‘ swan song, but the HBO exec won’t rule out episodes of the final run airing in 2019, telling the site that he’d have “a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.”

Game Of Thrones Season 7 Premiere Is A Bit On The Long Side

31 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

As Season 7 of HBO’s epic fantasy series, Game of Thrones, draws ever closer, fans now have a runtime on the premiere episode. Although HBO has still not given a title, according to their site, the episode will have a runtime of 59 minutes. The episode length seems like a good enough start, but it’s safe to assume fans are hoping with the season’s lower episode count, that each installment will be at least a little longer than previous seasons.

For fans, the episodes never seem to be long enough. It’s easy to lose track of time by being engulfed into the story and before they know it, it’s over, and the dreaded weeklong wait begins anew. Members of the cast recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about how shooting the season has been different from previous ones. While the season’s episode count has been knocked down from 10 to seven, »

Game of Thrones producers talk season 7, season 8 confirmed as six episodes

28 May 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO stepped up the promotion for the next season of Game of Thrones this past week with the release of the first trailer , Night King poster and a new batch of images, and now the show’s producers have been chatting to EW about the new season and the impact of Daenerys’ arrival in Westeros.

“What’s most exciting this season is being able to play interactions between various characters that for years we haven’t been able to play,” states D.B. Weiss, with fellow co-creator David Benioff adding that: “I know you probably get sick of hearing us say this, we say it every year, but everybody steps up their game this season. It’s kind of astounding to us. In every department, from the acting to the effects, everybody constantly improves.”

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Finally Has An Official Episode Count

26 May 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’ve been rumblings for some time now about just how many episodes the final two seasons of Game of Thrones will consist of, and while we’ve already heard that season 7 will run for seven, it’s been confirmed today that the eighth and final outing will last for a total of just six.

While definitely a bit disappointing, we expected that this would be the case, as rumors haven been pointing to Game of Thrones wrapping up with a thirteen episode arc. That’s equivalent to shows like Billions and Daredevil, among many others. Except the only difference here is that HBO is splitting it up over two years for a number of production and business reasons.

At the moment, Db Weiss and David Benioff are said to be writing the final batch of episodes during post-production for season 7, ahead of its premiere this July. They’re obviously »
