'Game of Thrones' Sansa Stark just found her worst nightmare while channel surfing

53 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just when you thought it was safe, that there was no Possible way more Game of Thrones headlines could be in your future, Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) had to go and be hilarious. And I don’t mean Internet hilarious where you type out “lol” while you sit stone-faced behind your computer screen. I mean, “I laughed out loud and scared my dogs” funny. Like most teenagers in the summer, Turner was watching television when the TV Guide went from mundane to menacing. Are…are you threatening Sansa Stark, Channel 104? Well, are you?   No thank you A video posted by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on Jun 30, 2016 at 1:46pm Pdt »

Visiting ‘Kubo and the Two Strings,’ Laika’s Samurai Stop-Motion Adventure

1 hour ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Laika’s fascination with folktales gets more sweeping and exotic with the samurai adventure, “Kubo and the Two Strings,” expanding yet again the boundaries of stop-motion.

“Every Laika movie has its own aesthetic, but this one’s more open and expansive— there are areas where the eyes can rest,” explained Laika’s lead artist/CEO Travis Knight, who makes his directorial debut with “Kubo.”

Citing an epic, fantasy quality reminiscent of David Lean, Akira Kurosawa, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, Knight couldn’t resist helming “Kubo” (shepherded by Shannon Tindle, who recently made the “On Ice” Google Spotlight Vr short and retains story and character design credits).

At long last, Nielsen reveals official Netflix streaming numbers

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At the start of 2016, NBC attempted to find out Netflix's secret ratings for their most popular shows. Netflix basically said, "Nice try, bro" and continued business as usual. But the streaming service has finally decided to throw us all a bone by releasing the premiere numbers for Orange Is the New Black. Alan Wurtzel, NBCU president of research and media development, thought he had cracked Netflix's numbers in January with help from tech firm Symphony. Not only was it an odd thing to do, but the numbers also came from an opt-in app with an incredibly low user base that used audio content recognition technology and the soundtrack of a show to determine what people were watching. Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos called it “remarkably inaccurate” and said that it “doesn’t reflect any sense of reality of anything that we keep track of.” But a new »

Star Trek: Beyond Awful Marketing

Tony Black on the marketing campaign for Star Trek Beyond

So did you notice this week that a third, albeit fairly brief trailer for Star Trek Beyond went online? Probably not. If you’re in the UK, you’ve been too busy watching Game of Thrones or England disgrace themselves in Europe in more ways than one, and if you’re anywhere else you may well have been put off by how much Rihanna was draped over the back half of the promo for Justin Lin’s upcoming 50th anniversary adventure, celebrating the franchise. Now I have nothing against Rihanna; she strikes me as having poor taste in men & her music is about as appealing to me as a mug of cold sick, but there’s nothing wrong with her per se. Apparently she loves Star Trek too (oi, you at the back, stop laughing!). Should her music, in this »

10 Things We Must See in Game of Thrones Season 7

3 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cersei's taken the throne. Jon and Sansa have reclaimed Winterfell. And Dany and her dragons are on their way to finally enter the fray. After the season six finale of Game of Thrones, the great game is truly underway. Now that we've had a few days to digest the enormity of that season closer, we're looking to—what else?—season seven and all that it might entail. We know that creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are planning on shorter seasons for the two left in their HBO hit's order, but there's still so much we need to see before winter comes for us all. While it may seem impossible to service such a sprawling cast of characters as fully as we'd hope in just about 13 remaining episodes, »

25 Times Jason Momoa Proved He's a Diehard Game of Thrones Fanboy

3 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It can't be easy when an actor's character is killed off of their TV show, but Jason Momoa (who played Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones during season one) has taken it in stride. In fact, the frequently shirtless actor seems to be a bigger Game of Thrones fan than ever, regularly posting messages of support (or shock, because the show does that sometimes!) on his Instagram page. From themed feasts to cast reunions, here are 25 Instagram snaps that prove Jason Momoa is the biggest Game of Thrones fanboy out there. Now, where can we score an invite to one of his viewing parties? »

For the third year in a row, ‘Game of Thrones’ will lack a single female director

4 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Game of Thrones just wrapped a gangbusters season. Making a complete about-face from their missteps with female characters — particularly Daenerys’ wedding night, Cersei and Jaime’s funeral reunion, and Sansa’s second wedding night — David Benioff and D.B. Weiss ushered in a new reign of female empowerment. The patriarchy is dead; long live the matriarchy (and Jon Snow). But while women fared better in front of the camera this season, behind the scenes it’s a different story. As reported by EW, the directors in charge of Game of Thrones truncated seventh  season will be Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, and Matt Shakman. The chosen share something in common: they’re all white men. Being a Game of Thrones director is a very elite club. Over the last six seasons, only eighteen people have held the job (Matt Shakman will be #19). Out of that select group, only one has been a woman. »

Nielsen Provides First Glimpse Into TV Ratings On Streaming Services Like Netflix And Hulu

4 hours ago | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

While ratings for television programming consumed via streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu has remained largely under wraps thus far, ratings giant Nielsen has released its initial findings during a recent conference with studio partners in Las Vegas. The data that was released had to be approved by the studios behind each show, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Nielsen found that the premiere episode of Lionsgate’s Orange Is The New Black -- whose fourth season debuted on June 17 -- was watched by 6.7 million viewers stateside the weekend following its release. The second episode was watched by 5.9 million people. These numbers would make it the second most-viewed show on cable -- behind HBO’s Game Of Thrones. Additionally, when Seinfeld premiered on Hulu last June, Nielsen found that the series reached 186,000 U.S. viewers on the first day and a total of 706,000 within the first five days.

The Good Wife review: a legal drama that breezes the Bechdel test

5 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Over the course of seven series, Julianna Margulies excels as Alicia Florrick, juggling single motherhood, court cases and romance

Game of Thrones usually ends a season with the dismemberment of a much-loved principal or with a vast flotilla of CGI longboats setting sail for a dreadful war. The Good Wife doesn’t need to try so hard. The glossy legal-political potboiler’s loyal audience need nothing more than someone knocking on a door and someone else opening it to keep them onside for another year.

Such has been the staggering confidence of this Bechdel test-breezing hybrid from CBS, whose titular stand-by-your-man political spouse turned litigator has given Julianna Margulies the role of a lifetime over its seven long seasons. After 156 episodes, The Good Wife just came to a natural and satisfactory end (which I won’t spoil as the final series isn’t on DVD until October). But stragglers who »

7 Great Independent Pilots from SeriesFest We Hope Become TV Series

5 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The world of independent television is pretty chaotic right now, largely because, unlike the indie film scene, there’s no clear trajectory to success. Some shows threw all their money into shooting a pilot. Some shows have shot multiple episodes. Some shows have found alternate distribution opportunities already. Some shows remain unseen. All of them, though, want to go beyond their current status.

As an attendee of SeriesFest 2016, I had the opportunity to see a large percentage of the pilots screened as part of the independent pilot competition. Some of these pilots were not world premieres, but all of the ones I saw represented the impressive state of independent production today; where a shoestring budget can still produce content on a level equal to what you might watch on TV.

Why Aziz Ansari’s Dad Could Be the Surprise Emmy Nominee of 2016 (Really)

6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sitting in an overflow room at the Paley Center for Media, a thought struck me: “What if Shoukath Ansari wins an Emmy for ‘Master of None’?”

The thought wasn’t entirely baseless — Shoukath, the father of Aziz Ansari, certainly warrants the praise for his hysterical, honest and empathetic turn — nor was it unprompted. Netflix was holding its official For Your Consideration event for “Master of None,” and the event attracted so many people that a substantial chunk of us couldn’t even fit in the main theatre. We had to move to a backroom with a television displaying first the episode being screened and then a conversation between creators Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, producer Michael Schur and cast members Lena Waithe and Kelvin Yu.

Clearly, there’s a fervor surrounding this show — and a devout fan base for the senior Ansari family member, as well. His debut in the »

Game of Thrones: This Theory About Varys Being a Merman Is Shockingly Believable

6 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If one of the most shocking parts of the Game of Thrones finale to you was the moment you realized how quickly Varys got from Meereen to Dorne, then you need to hear this theory. It basically states that Varys is a male mermaid, aka a merman, a creature that does exist in the Song of Ice and Fire universe and is known as a "merling." If you're thinking this sounds insane, I agree - but this video by Nerdist has convinced me. It pieces together all the evidence that points to Varys being a merling, and you're going to have to watch it: Here's some of the more convincing support: Varys disappears and reappears all the time, perhaps because he's swimming through the city's underground waterways? He wears long robes . . . to cover his weird tail?! He allegedly licks his lips one time when people are talking about cannibalism. When »

Game of Thrones: HBO Has Confirmed Jon Snow's Father

7 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you thought we were going to have to wait until season seven of Game of Thrones for official confirmation of Jon Snow's father, you were wrong. While we found out Lyanna Stark is Jon's mother in the season six finale, it's not explicitly stated that Rhaegar Targaryen is his father, though many fans assumed it was the case due to the popular R + L = J theory. Rather than drag out the mystery, HBO just straight-up confirmed the theory with an infographic on their Making Game of Thrones blog. Take a look: This also clarifies how Dany and Jon are related, in case you were confused. (Which is totally fine, this is crazy confusing.) Now that we know for sure Rhaegar is Jon's dad, what is Jon's real name? »

Meet the 12-Year-Old Who Plays Game of Thrones' Newest Badass Lyanna Mormont

7 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

No disrespect to Jon Snow, but we're ready for a Queen in the North after Game of Thrones' sixth season. And apologies to another member of House Stark, Sansa Stark, because we're not talking about her either. No, we're talking about Lyanna Mormont, the young but fierce leader of the Bear Islands, who became a fan-favorite and Internet sensation from her very first on-screen scowl. And don't even get us started on her epic speech in the finale, calling out three male leaders for their lack of action. "House Mormont remembers! The North remembers!" Chills!) Now, it's time to meet the equally-as-badass actor behind Lady Lyanna Mormont: Bella Ramsey, who sounded off on her breakout »
