Did you know that they apparently made another Terminator movie in 2015? Despite having seen it in theaters back during its original run, this still strikes me as new, hard-to-believe information. If there was really a new installment of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s popular sci-fi/action franchise as recently as two years ago, wouldn’t someone remember that? Wikipedia claims that the film (subtitled Genisys, which sounds fake but okay) attempted to launch Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke’s big-screen phase of her career, included a clutch starring role from Ahnuld himself, and earned the second-most of any entry in the series. Call me crazy, but that seems like a pretty major occurrence to have entirely fled the public‘s collective pop-cultural memory. I’m skeptical — does this look like a real movie to you?
We’re way out in the woods on Game of Thrones this year, lacking a summer premiere or any sense of how Season 7 will start wrapping up George R.R. Martin’s incomplete saga. Still, were there any doubt Fire would meet Ice this year, allow the first poster to make that point literally.
Although pre-production on Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s young Han Solo spinoff has been underway for some time now (operating under the clever codename “Red Cup”), today marks the full, official start of production. To celebrate, Lucasfilm has debuted the first photo of the cast and their directors, crammed together inside the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon as if posing for a very cheerful (if a bit tardy) holiday greeting card.
Game of Thrones Season 7 may have been delayed to summer, but the adjusted production schedule keeps the cast and crew teasing us on the regular. Celebrate with Emilia Clarke lip-syncing the close of production, and check out Brewery Ommegang’s new House-themed concoctions.
Emilia Clarke, whom most of us know as Khaleesi, has been dipping a toe into film lately, probably preparing for Game of Thrones’ eventual end. She had a starring role as Sarah Connor in Terminator: Genisys over the summer, which wasn’t… super, but it looks like she’s digging the franchise thing. Tonight, the official Star Wars Twitter account announced that she’s heading to a galaxy a fur piece from our own to meet up with Han Solo and his furry Wookiee buddy.
As if the wait for Game of Thrones Season 7 weren’t long enough, recent weeks have seen all manner of perfect pairings coming together via set photos and rumors. It now seems the mother of all meetings is finally upon us as well, with super-spoilery set videos finally singing our Song of Ice and Fire.
It’s an even longer road than usual to Game of Thrones Season 7, and production has their work cut out for keeping things under wraps. Recent reports have suggested all manner of fan-favorite crossover, while the latest shows us what might be Daenerys’ new home, and another incredible meeting.
Game of Thrones dominated the Iron Throne of the Emmys for the second year in a row. And honestly, who was surprised?
Even at a reduced episode order, Game of Thrones Season 7 brings with it the likelihood of even more character connections than the prior year. We know travel times are no longer a concern, but a new Season 7 production report places a surprising figure within striking distance of King’s Landing.
Game of Thrones fans have generally presumed that George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” refers to an inevitable pairing between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, something the HBO adaptation has seemingly made clear with a host of parallel imagery. At least one major Season 6 reflection wasn’t intentional, however, as Kit Harington calls it a “happy accident.”
