Top 10 lists rank among the more unusual aspects of movie and TV criticism, and as my colleagues Ryan McGee, Matt Singer, and Mike Sampson’s own 2014 favorites will attest, the end-of-year celebration format brings with it a unique mixture of...
Game of Thrones - Page 4
Anyone keeping up with HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ well knows that season 5 will be one of transition for many characters, in particular Arya, who was last seen boarding a ship toward a brand-new life in a foreign country. And while it’s hard to say exactly who Arya Stark will become when ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 picks up in 2015, we at least know what she’ll look like, based on new concept art.
A few weeks ago, ‘Game of Thrones’ got all our season 5 hopes up with the reveal of a new “Sight” web page designed to tease subscribers with upcoming footage. Now, the first few bits of the hotly-anticipated ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 have landed, confirming that Tyrion and Sansa…are still alive! You know, doin’ Tyrion and Sansa stuff. Like Tyrion and Sansa do.
HBO surprised us all a few months ago with the revelation that cordcutters might finally have a solution, as the pay-cable network announced plans for an independent online streaming service in 2015. Now, an internal memo suggests that the new service will arrive with ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 in April, also revealing some surprising prospects for the future of HBO GO.
It’s that time of the year, when pop culture websites and critics publish their annual Best Of lists and we heap praise on the best and most beloved movies and TV shows of the year. But what about the average moviegoer and TV-viewer? That’s where Facebook comes in. The social media site has released their top 10 movies and top 10 TV shows of the year, based on the most discussed titled of 2014. While some are fairly obvious, the lists might surprise you and inspire you to contemplate the overlap between what’s popular and what’s actually good.
Just last week saw Telltale Games confirming that their forthcoming ‘Game of Thrones’ video game would share some impressive cast with the hit HBO drama, premiering on December 2 with its first installment, “Iron From Ice.” Now, one day before hitting platforms, the Telltale ‘Game of Thrones’ adaptation has an epic launch trailer full of cast members new and old.
Telltale’s ‘Game of Thrones’ video game “Iron From Ice” took us all by surprise with the announcement that HBO series stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Iwan Rheon and Natalie Dormer would lend their voices, but the fantasy video game from the makers of ‘The Walking Dead’ adaptation have even more in store. Not only will a new trailer arrive in early December, but the game itself will be available to play one day later!
HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 won’t bring forth any fire or blood until spring 2015, but that doesn’t prevent us from using “The Sight” to look ahead. The network has seemingly launched a new viral teaser campaign for season 5, revealing a few brief looks at Arya in the new season, as well as…some other stuff. Maybe. I don’t know, it’s weird.
We’ve known for some time that Telltale Games would mount their take on HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ complimenting their acclaimed adaptations of ‘The Walking Dead’ comics and even ‘Back to the Future,’ and at last the first trailer for “Iron From Ice” has arrived, with a twist. Not only does Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) herself narrate, but so too will Peter Dinklage and more from the ‘Game of Thrones’ cast reprise their roles!
Of all the myriad details leaked from ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 5, perhaps the most simultaneously surprising and expected is that of Charles Dance’s return to the role of Tywin Lannister. And while the show’s introduction of flashbacks might craft any number of returns for the fallen Lannister patriarch, Dance himself has confirmed details of the character’s reappearance.
