game of thrones creators star wars

Game of Thrones will soon close out its buzzy, critically acclaimed eight-season run next year, putting an end to the zeitgeist that the HBO series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss ruled over for nearly a decade. But Benioff and Weiss will soon find themselves in the cockpit of yet another beloved franchise.

Lucasfilm announced the Game of Thrones creators’ Star Wars project earlier this year, but details on their new series remain scarce.

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week we try and get past the velvet rope, speak out about how the Mormon Church treats its LGBTQ community, watch Armie Hammer shill, survive a disaster to battle another day on the pitch, hit the Irish waves, and try and find our place in the world after being booted out of it. Read More »
