Terminator Genisys is the fifth movie in a series that features a roller coaster of varying quality, and a grossly underrated television series.
“The time John sent you to – it no longer exists.”
After what feels like a decade of waiting and a rather elusive teaser trailer, the first full Terminator Genisys trailer is out, and boy are we fan-girling over it.
On Friday afternoon, July 19th, in Hall H, some of the Game of Thrones cast gathered for a panel at the SDCC. Cast members Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, John Bradley, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie and Richard Madden, and author George R.R. Martin joined executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for the event.
The Game of Thrones panel began with an “In Memoriam” video played with Boys II Men’s “Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday”. Such a horribly sad video, remembering all of those amazing characters that we won’t get to see again.
Here is a video that shows the entire panel: (Special Guest star at about 14:40)
Game of Thrones will return in the Spring of 2014.
After a thrilling episode this week, perhaps the best so far, HBO has so graciously given us a little tidbit of what to expect from next week’s episode titled “Kissed By Fire”. I realize that every show does this every week but for whatever reason, with Game of Thrones it seems a wee bit more special. Probably because they leave you on the edge of your seat wanting more not unlike being stranded in the desert and some kind soul offers you a drop of water. Yes, I did liken waiting a week for a new episode to dying of thirst in the Sahara. I have a feeling that GoT fans won’t argue with me.
Enough talking, here’s the promo!
BURN IN HELL!!
Oooohhhh, intrigue. I do have to take the desert thing a bit further because this promo doesn’t do much to alleviate the thirst, just makes us want more.
In the meantime, let’s all join together and laugh at this.
How awesome is that? I might have laughed like a hyena in Lion King (not the Whoopi Goldberg one) when I saw that. Awww, poor Samwell Tarly.
Finally! Daenerys Targaryen is getting her due. Love it. Speaking of Daenerys, if you are a “behind the scenes” fan like myself, then you are sure to enjoy this “Anatomy of a Scene”.
So what are you looking forward to in episode 5? Let us know in the comments!
We are all going to have to wait until the end of March before HBO’s Game of Thrones season three make it’s way into your living room but we don’t have to wait that long to open our early GoT Christmas gifts.
First up we get a nice little interview on the Jimmy Kimmel show from everybody’s favorite stormborn, Daenerys Targaryen ie. Emilia Clarke. It wasn’t surprising to learn that Emilia is really a brunette with a British accent, but it is truly impressive that they manage to get those long platinum locks to look so natural by using a wig. Altogether the interview isn’t that compelling, but she does reveal to those who haven’t read the series that Danny gets a little bad ass in season three which is an understatement by a long shot. Think Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction except times really are Medieval (sort of).
Secondly we get some more non-spoiler type news about the upcoming season from EW.com, namely that the third seasons episodes will be slightly longer, including an extra long season finale. This will make the GoT 10-episode season seem more like an 11-episode season as far as actual screen time is concerned. It also seems that the episodes will be getting a more thorough treatment if you read into another comment from the aforementioned article. The article alludes to the fact that the writers are dealing with roughly the first half of A Storm of Swords which would be a change from the first two season that pretty much ended at the same place as the books. This actually make perfect sense as there is a great cliff hanger about 2/3 of the way through Storms and for those of you who thought the end of season one was surprising… you ain’t seen nothing yet!
What I’m most excited for believe it or not, other than the actual season, is the release of the GoT “Iron Throne” beer! What makes this especially exciting is that this isn’t some money-grabbing, HBO-promoting, fan-abusing beer release (OK maybe a little) because Ommegang, as beer lovers out there know, is a legit craft brewery who make a quality product. The beer is set to be released in March, just in time to crack one open as you sit back and watch the season three opening episode, so I guess there will be some cross promoting after all.
