Game of Thrones season 8 episode count not set, HBO “exploring” spinoff possibilities

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This summer Game of Thrones will return for its seventh and penultimate season – consisting of just seven episodes – before showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff wrap things up with an eighth season of six episodes.

However, as yet, HBO is yet to officially renew the epic fantasy series for season eight – a decision that the cable network’s programming president Casey Bloys says is down to the fact that the actual episode count is yet to be determined.

“The only thing we’re working out is how many episodes they want to do,” Bloys tells TV Line. “They’re still figuring it out because I think they’re trying to get a shape of the season. They always do what they think [will yield] the best version of the show. It’s all about how many they’re comfortable [with]. But I’ll always take more. If you’re afraid we’re not »

The fourth season of “Sherlock” officially aired its finale last night, but many saw a leaked version of the episode a day earlier — and some believe Russia’s state-run broadcaster could be involved.

'The Young Pope' Recap: No Church in the Wild

44 minutes ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I don't know if you deserve me," the pontiff formerly known as Lenny Belardo tells the horrified crowd in St. Peter's Square at the end of his bonkers first homily. Neither do we, Lenny, neither do we. Two episodes in, and The Young Pope shines like a city on a hill – a beacon of madcap brilliance, savage humor, and go-for-broke filmmaking excess right when we need it most. It's a light in the darkness, even if it ends with its title character in a very dark place. We mean that both literally and metaphorically. »

1 hour ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On April 23, 1967, a small-time convict pulled off a big-time escape.

The convict, known to his jailers as Prisoner # 416-j, had been held in the Missouri State Penitentiary for the past seven years, and still had years to serve for armed robbery. He had previously been incarcerated for stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of postal money orders, and at age 39, he had spent a good part of his adult life behind bars. But on this spring day, he was preparing to break free.

Rising early, he took the elevator to the prison bakery where he had worked »

What Are the ‘Fang’ Stocks? A Short Explainer

2 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

CNBC’s Jim Cramer is known for his voluble stock advocacy, but the “Mad Money” host also made a key contribution to contemporary Wall Street lexicon, as he’s the one who coined “Fang” as a term for the stocks of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google parent Alphabet. And those Fang stocks had quite a bite in 2015, when they averaged a robust 83 percent increase — during a year when the S&P 500 actually finished down less than 1 percent. Netflix, which jumped 134 percent in 2015, was the top performing stock in the entire S&P 500. The four Fang companies couldn’t »

The upcoming PBS documentary series “The Story of China” is not a purely academic exercise, but rather a “people’s history” of the country, series contributor Lik Hang Tsui told the Television Critics Association press tour on Monday. “What I liked about the selection of material in the series is that it really brings out the voices of the people,” Tsui said. “It’s the people’s history. It’s not just rulers, dynastic histories, but also what the Chinese think about their history, their stories, their families.” The official synopsis for the series reads as follows: Travel from the »

Watch Chewbacca Rip Off an Arm in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Deleted Scene (Video)

2 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Always let the Wookie win. In a newly-found deleted scene from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Unkar Plutt (Simon Pegg) confronts Rey (Daisy Ridley) for not selling him the droid Bb-8, until her new furry Bff Chewbacca steps in and rips Plutt’s arm off in self-defense. It’s kind of awesome. The scene is no less gruesome than Luke getting his hand sliced off in “The Empire Strikes Back,” but hearing Plutt’s screams of agonizing pain just off camera, perhaps it’s not hard too imagine why Disney and director J.J. Abrams axed the scene for the final film. »

Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Alphabet Q4 Earnings Preview: What to Watch For

3 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Hollywood will take a break from awards season to intermittently focus its gaze on the stock market over the next three weeks, as Wall Street’s four erstwhile darlings with serious content ambitions — Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google parent Alphabet — will report their fourth-quarter and full-year earnings. Investors will be scrutinizing those reports closely after all four mega-corporations ended last year with a whimper, underperforming the Dow Jones industrial average after a torrid 2015. However, Wall Street still looks to Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google — also known as the “Fang” stocks — to get a sense of what some »
