We’ll still have to wait until September for Elisabeth Moss’ official Top of the Lake return, but some new China Girl photos pair nicely with that first trailer. Check out new looks at Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie, Nicole Kidman and more!
Were Elisabeth Moss not breaking your heart with enough regularity, Sundance is returning to Top of the Lake for Season 2’s China Girl. The second season delves deep into Detective Robin Griffin’s past, while the first trailer adds Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie, and Nicole Kidman.
The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuted this morning, and…wow, we’re gonna need a minute (or 20) to process, especially with Luke Skywalker’s suspenseful voiceover. We were promised we’d get to hear Mark Hamill speak, and speak he does — throughout most of the trailer, ending with a fairly chilling line: “It’s time for the Jedi to end.” But what does that mean?! Is Rey the eponymous last Jedi, or is Luke? That’s something we probably won’t know until December. For now, join us as we try to break it all down and take a closer look at the most thrilling (and possibly telling) moments with GIFs and screenshots from the trailer.
We’ve already seen one look at Mad Men alum Elizabeth Moss back in action for Top of the Lake Season 2, so what of her famous co-stars? Sneak a peek at Nicole Kidman’s grey-haired debut in Top of the Lake: China Girl, which is also now called Top of the Lake: China Girl, apparently.
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.
SundanceTV’s Top of the Lake proved so successful in its first season that many were keen to leave the series a standalone, but we’re still glad they didn’t. It’s a long way back to the Top of the Lake in 2017, but take a look at the first Season 2 photo with Mad Men ex Elisabeth Moss right now.
Given all Game of Thrones mysteries and histories slowly converging back toward the series’ end, the HBO drama will inevitably omit certain fan-favorite character’s origins. So it is with Brienne of Tarth, whom George R.R. Martin now confirms to have a major tie to his prequel novellas Tales of Dunk and Egg.
Amid all the blood and nudity, ‘Game of Thrones’ gave us a little romance to root for this season. The last two episodes of Season 6 found Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) making eyes at Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) when she arrived at Castle Black. Though Episode 4 director Daniel Sackheim thought Tormund’s flirtatious glances subtle, they quickly set the internet on fire. There were Brienne and Tormund memes, there were montage videos; it was the beginning of a beautiful warrior relationship (at least if fans had their way).
Full of revelation though the latest Game of Thrones may have been, Tormund and Brienne shippers could only add a few more stolen glances to the newly fan-favorite pairing. That is, until we see the Mean Girls teasing scene Gwendoline Christie reveals was ultimately cut from last night’s “The Door.”
Sunday’s Game of Thrones left plenty to talk about, whether Jon and Sansa’s reunion or Dany’s latest nude firewalk, but updates from the world of Westeros pale in comparison to the real story six seasons in the making: Tormund Giantsbane and Brienne of Tarth. The greatest Game of Thrones couple in living history only had a moment to share their love, but “Book of the Stranger” director Daniel Sackheim is hopeful their wildfire keeps burning.
