December 12th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Game Of Thrones Season 7, House and House II: The Second Story Special Editions

We should go ahead and rename December 12th “Arrow Video Day,” because the fine fiends over there have a ton of titles coming out this Tuesday, including Special Edition sets for The Premonition and Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood, and they’ve also put together standalone special edition Blu-rays for both House and House II: The Second Story. Severin Films is resurrecting Asylum this Tuesday, and fans can finally get their hands on the latest season of Game of Thrones, as well as a box set featuring every episode from all seven seasons.

Sophie Turner Confirms the (Very Upsetting) Release Date For Games of Thrones Season 8

"When will the final season of Game of Thrones come out?" It's a question that's been on the minds of every fan since season seven's epic, heartwrenching conclusion, and now we finally have an answer courtesy of star Sophie Turner. Well, sort of. First, showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss revealed that season eight will only consist of six episodes. Then, sound designer Paula Fairfield let it slip that each episode will be 80 (or more) minutes. Now we have a concrete time frame of when, exactly, the last season will drop thanks to Turner's recent interview with Variety. "We started in October, so we're maybe like a tenth of the way through," she joked. "No, no we've got six or seven months left. Game of Thrones comes in 2019." That means we have two whole years before we find out what will happen between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen after their glorious sex scene.

HBO’s Controversial Alt-History Series ‘Confederate’ Is “Not Actively” Being Worked on

HBO and Game of Thrones duo David Benioff and D.B. Weiss found themselves in a bit of hot water earlier this summer when they announced their plans for their new series, Confederate. Game of Thrones aside, the premium cable giant has grappled with finding dramatic hits in recent years (The Leftovers is genius, but not exactly a ratings record-breaker), and the next project from the team behind their crown jewel should have been a surefire hit, there was just one problem -- the series' premise immediately earned controversy as an ill-advised miscalculation of the cultural climate.

With Game of Thrones coming to an end after the upcoming final season, HBO is looking for ways to keep the network relevant and keep its subscribers hooked on its high-quality shows.

HBO’s Controversial ‘Confederate’ Is “Not Actively” Being Worked On

“We screwed up in an important way” HBO CEO Richard Plepler admitted earlier this fall about the announcement of the network’s “Confederate.” What was supposed to be celebratory moment — the new series from “Game Of Thrones” duo David Benioff and D.B. Weiss — turned into a PR nightmare.

The premise of the series drew plenty of criticism, taking place in an alternate Civil War timeline, where the southern states have successfully seceded from the Union, giving rise to a nation in which slavery remains legal and has evolved into a modern institution.

Emilia Clarke Is Tired Of Defending Game Of Thrones’ Sex Scenes

HBO’s fantasy flagship, Game of Thrones, has already fired up production on its eighth and final season, but it’s fair to say that the star-studded adaptation developed a reputation for (gratuitous?) nudity and sex scenes during its early years.

That’s something Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) has addressed before, and after seven seasons, the actress still struggles to see why so many viewers insist on making a big deal out of Thrones‘ nude scenes: “People fuck for pleasure, it’s part of life.” Say it louder for the people at the back.

Indeed, that quote from Clarke came during her recent interview with Harpers Bazaar (via The Independent), where she compared Thrones‘ adult content with that of The Handmaid’s Tale – incidentally, the latter recently won an Emmy for Best Drama Series.

I’m starting to get really annoyed about this stuff now because people say, ‘Oh, yeah,

Canon Of Film: ’25th Hour’

In this week’s edition of Canon Of Film, we take a look at one of Spike Lee‘s underrated masterpiece, ‘25th Hour‘. For the story behind the genesis of the Canon, you can click here.

’25th Hour‘ (2002)

Director: Spike Lee

Screenplay: David Benioff, based on his novel “The 25th Hour

When Spike Lee’s ‘25th Hour,’ came out in 2002, it was ignored by most every award show, and made only a handful of top 10 lists. It was on my top ten list of that year, and I thought it was one of Lee’s absolute best; I’ve often called it his most underrated film. It’s a funny thing about movies, sometimes a film needs a certain amount of time to pass before people truly recognize its greatness, and time for those who were ahead of the curve to gloat a bit. Suddenly, at the end of the decade,

Leaked Game Of Thrones Set Photos Point To Huge Winterfell Sequence And A Mysterious New Castle

Winterfell, the largest castle in the North and long-time home of the Stark family, will feature quite prominently in Game of Thrones season 8, if these leaked set photos are any indication.

First spotted by the eagle-eyed folks over at Watchers on the Wall (with a tip of the hat to Oakleaf Photography), these images were taken at some of the show’s key filming hubs in Northern Ireland, including the serene Moneyglass and Titanic Studios.

Since the early days on Game of Thrones, Moneyglass has doubled as the northerly Winterfell, and we’re now hearing that the Stark stronghold is being revamped from the ground up in anticipation of season 8. Massive white sheets have also been scattered across the Irish fields, which only fuels previous rumors that Winterfell will be one of the first castles to come under siege from the invading Night King and his undead army.

Speaking of castles,

'Game of Thrones' Podcast: Season 1 Ends in "Fire and Blood"

"Fire cannot kill a dragon."

These chilling words from Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), first uttered as she stood before her squealing brother's molten corpse, ended up being rather prophetic by the end of the first season of Game of Thrones. Seven years in the rearview mirror as of this writing, the episode — "Fire and Blood," written by showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss, and directed by Alan Taylor — makes good on Dany's testament to the power of the Targaryen line, allowing the widowed Khaleesi to not only survive an overnight inside a burning funeral pyre...

Kit Harington's first go as Jon Snow didn't quite work out. In a new interview with the UK's Guardian, the actor explained that the original pilot that he shot for the now-hit HBO series Game of Thrones didn’t quite get the look and feel of Westeros right the first time.

"They made a lot of mistakes," he said of the show's creators, Db Weiss and David Benioff. "It didn't look right, didn't feel right, had nothing different about it."

The films of Taika Waititi

Andrew Blair Oct 27, 2017

Taika Waititi is topping the box office with Thor: Ragnarok. But if you haven't explored his back catalogue, you're really missing out.

A minor spoiler for Hunt For The Wilderpeople lies ahead (but it's something that happens very early in the film!)

After a troubled production, the second Thor film was regarded as one of Marvel Studios’ lesser movies. The character of Thor was not a big part of the Avengers movies either, and so the prospect of a third Thor film was not keenly anticipated. Then, about two years ago, Taika Waititi was announced as director, and suddenly people got excited.

This is not because Waititi was in Green Lantern, and people who were involved in that seem to try really hard to make a good superhero film, but because Waititi’s movies have been critically acclaimed across the world, and have broken box office records

The New Golden Age of Studio Science-Fiction is Upon Us

The New Golden Age of Studio Science-Fiction is Upon Us
“Blade Runner 2049” is going to struggle to make it past the $100 million mark at the domestic box office, hardly the response Warner Bros. was looking for given the film’s estimated $300 million production and marketing budget. In a way, the odds were always against “2049” given that its predecessor was also a financial disappointment and only went on to become a cult classic with a very specific demographic of moviegoers. “Blade Runner” is no multi-generational favorite a la “Star Wars” or “Jurassic Park.”

But while the sequel is a box office dud, it’s unquestionably a huge step in the right direction for studio filmmaking.

Game of Thrones: This Aegon Easter Egg Is Just as Sweet as It Is Heartbreaking

For the most part, Game of Thrones is an endurance test for how many miserable, heartbreaking, and stomach-churning events you can withstand in one sitting. There have been a few bright spots over the last seven seasons, though, and Ser Davos Seaworth's tender friendship with young Shireen Baratheon is at the top of the list. As it happens, one of their tutoring sessions happens to contain a subtle Easter egg concerning the big reveal about Jon Snow's true name in the season seven finale. As you might recall, before showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss decided to rip out our hearts with Shireen's fate, there's a scene from a few seasons back where she's trying to teach the illiterate Davos how to read and write. Reddit user Efurthy realized that Shireen's choice for the first word to teach her new student (and Jon Snow's future Bff) could not

Report: Game of Thrones' Final Season Adds Into the Badlands Actor
When Game of Thrones fulfills Cersei’s request for an army in Season 8, it’ll be led by face familiar to Into the Badlands fans, a new report suggests.

The eagle-eyed Thrones devotees at Watchers on the Wall recently flagged a theatrical agency’s announcement that Marc Rissmann has been cast as Harry Strickland in the HBO drama’s upcoming eighth and final season. (HBO declined to comment on the casting, and the announcement has since been removed.)

In the George R.R. Martin novels on which the TV series is based, Harry Strickland is the leader of the Golden Company,

Game Of Thrones Star Liam Cunningham Rules Out Surprise Cameo From [Spoiler]

Ser Davos Seaworth (Aka the Onion Knight) is arguably one of the unsung heroes populating HBO’s Game of Thrones, and if there’s anyone who deserves a happy end in season 8, it’s Liam Cunningham’s former smuggler.

But the blood-drenched fields of Westeros are not known for their happy endings, so the chances of Marya Seaworth appearing in Thrones‘ eighth and final season are slim to none. That’s something Cunningham acknowledged during a recent interview with TV Guide, where the actor pointed to the truncated episode count as the primary reason why Mrs. Seaworth is unlikely to feature.

Said he:

I don’t think it’s going to happen. We’ve got six episodes left and we’re ramping up to World War III in Westeros. The introduction of my fabulously beautiful wife, I’d imagine, is not going to be seen.
