HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ somehow managed to up its epic scale even further with IMAX screenings to debut the season 5 trailer, but it seems the January 23 screening has officially been de-throned. In a good news-bad news move, the screenings have been pushed back to a later premiere date, adding 50 additional theaters around the country in the process.

Conflicted accounts may rule the day on Showtime's steamy marital drama 'The Affair,' but the HFPA is on board for either side. The 2015 Golden Globes have officially granted Best TV Drama to 'The Affair,' just two months after the show was granted its second season.
HBO takes the stage at the ongoing TCA press tour in Pasadena, and the premiere announcements ride with it. Not only does ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 have its official April premiere locked in, but so too does the fourth season of Emmy-winning comedy ‘Veep,’ and the second season of last year’s Mike Judge breakout ‘Silicon Valley!’
Because rumors of a ‘Deadpool’ movie have lingered for many years and years, we’ll always remain a little skeptical that this movie is actually happening for real this time. But, following the news that Ryan Reynolds has officially signed on to star, comes word that casting on the project is ramping up as T.J. Miller (‘Silicon Valley’, ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’) and Ed Skrein (formerly of ‘Game of Thrones’) are in talks to join the upcoming project.
Late yesterday we learned the news that ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 had wrought a large addition to the cast, but the latest shocker from HBO’s epic fantasy-drama, proves even bigger. IMAX big! Not only has ‘Game of Thrones’ partnered with hundreds of theaters for its first ever IMAX TV screenings, but so too will the first season 5 trailer debut exclusively with the larger-than-Westeros event!
‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 may not have conjured any actual trailer to accompany its maddening “sight” teasers just yet, but its latest addition to the cast is definitely a human person in a fictional role. Following earlier revelations that the HBO fantasy-drama would dip into the past for its first-ever flashback, we now know that a young Cersei Lannister will indeed be played by a young female actress of Cersei-like appearance, and not a stalk of corn, notable scientist, or ‘Game of Thrones’ star Charles Dance.
A year of great TV has nearly come to a close, and if you’re anything like us, the only 2015 event worthy of anticipation will be the ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 premiere this spring. Thankfully, the long wait will prove somewhat less dreary, as HBO has scheduled a new preview special for February, as Anthrax and more join the newest “Catch the Throne” mixtape for the fantasy-drama.
The ease with which we access TV becomes more ubiquitous every year, but some shows will always top out demand for piracy. Now, for the third year in a row, HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ has topped TorrentFreak’s annual list of pirated TV show downloads, though a few of the entries on this year’s countdown might actually surprise you.
The year may be coming to a close, but rolling over in 2015 will bring one of HBO's most exciting lineups to date. Check out our first look at official footage from 'Game of Thrones' season 5, J.J. Abrams' 'Westworld' reboot, The Rock's 'Ballers,' Jack Black's 'The Brink' and many more in a new year-end trailer from HBO!
