game of thrones episode leaked

The internet is dark and full of spoilers — because the second Game of Thrones episode in two weeks has leaked online. But don’t worry, it’s not from trollish hackers who want to ruin whatever bombshells Game of Thrones‘ sixth episode has waiting for us. It was an accident.

The unaired sixth episode of Game of Thrones‘ seventh season, “Death is the Enemy,” was accidentally aired by HBO Nordic in Spain for an hour before it was removed. But that was enough time for the episode to make its way to file-sharing sites and Reddit — from which it will inevitably spread like wildfire.

Now that Joy has solidified her standing as one of the most promising horror actresses today after turns in Split and Morgan, she and Eggers are reportedly teaming up again for his remake of Nosferatu.

michael sheen and david tennant cast in good omens

The Apocalypse is looking pretty good right now.

Michael Sheen and David Tennant have been cast in the Amazon TV series Good Omens, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s whimsical, and very British, apocalyptic comedy. It’s some inspired casting that bodes well for the adaptation of another Gaiman work, who is on a roll right now after American Gods. A good omen for the show, you might say.

game of thrones eastwatch review 8

Last night’s Game of Thrones was a “breather” episode, but it was also a belter, bringing unlikely characters together for a death-defying mission and threatening to drive wedges between others. One of those wedges involved a secret letter obtained by Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish – a letter that was found by Arya Stark and whose contents remain a mystery.

Well, sort of. This is the internet and this is Game of Thrones, so of course everyone figured out what the letter says and what’s going on here. In fact, those with long memories will know exactly what this note says. But if you’d rather discover what’s going on in the context of the story, consider this your spoiler warning.

game of thrones eastwatch review 1

(In our coverage of Game of Thrones season 7, we’ll be examining each episode with one simple question in mind – which character is winning the game of thrones this week?)

After last week’s fireworks, Game of Thrones settled down just bit for “Eastwatch,” an hour dedicated to maneuvering all of the vital players into the right positions for another round of fireworks next week. But unlike other “table setting” episodes of past seasons, the unrelenting pace of season 7 applies to even the chapters where everyone is taking a breath.

The Shape of Water Photos

Guillermo del Toro has created some terrifying human beings in his movies. Michael Shannon plays his next antagonist and I can imagine del Toro turning him into one truly terrifying presence in his fairy tale. The trailer already has me fearing what he might do to Michael Stuhlbarg, who after his fantastic performance in Fargo, I expect to be the recipient of more pain and suffering. Shannon’s character, Strickland (a strong villain name if there ever was one), is probably more interested in harming the fish-man (Doug Jones) he has trapped.

Below, check out Strickland, the fish-man, and more in some new The Shape of Waters photos.

game of thrones easter eggs

“The Spoils of War,” the fourth episode of Season 7 of Game of Thrones, may have been one of the HBO fantasy’s best episodes by far. That could be in part due to the seventh season’s sudden narrative urgency, the stunning, climactic battle, or the show’s nuanced hints at an endgame weapon.

Or, it could be the numerous easter eggs and cameos that populated “The Spoils of War,” which make each viewing of a Game of Thrones episode richer than the last. Here are some things you may have missed about Season 7, Episode 4 of Game of Thrones, as well as some plain old fun facts about costumes and IKEA.

With the release of The Dark Tower, it marks the (hopefully) first film adaptation of Stephen King‘s multi-novel magnum opus. Our own Jacob Hall will have a full interview with director Nikolaj Arcel here on the site in the coming days, but during their Comic-Con chat, Arcel teased that The Dark Tower will contain easter eggs reference King’s 1975 novel Salem’s Lot, and we’ve seen in previous trailers that there are references to The Shining, It, and more.
