game of thrones final season

The upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones will consist of only seven episodes, which is a bit of a disappointment after six years of 10-episode seasons that already felt all-too-brief. And now, courtesy of the series creators and showrunners, we know that the eighth and final season will be even shorter.

don quixote filming

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote has apparently begun production and now I’m worried that a giant foot will come down from the sky and crush director Terry Gilliam, Monty Python-style. After all, the forces of nature have kept this project on the ropes for nearly two decades. This isn’t even the first time cameras have rolled on the film! There’s still a chance all finished footage could burn up in a fire. There’s still a chance a freak sinkhole could swallow the entire crew. Anything can happen…but it’s about time that the universe cut Gilliam some slack.

Let’s run down everything we know where this famously ill-fated production stands at the moment, including its new leading man.

new preacher actors

I have my qualms with the first season of AMC’s Preacher, but for the most part, the series pulled off the impossible – it’s a show that felt an awful lot like Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s classic comic book series, even when it diverged from the story in a big way. Showrunner Sam Catlin and his team eschewed the aspects of the comic series that haven’t aged well and doubled down on the stuff that has aged beautifully. Namely, the characters, their relationships, and the way that dusty, Texas atmosphere mingles with so much blasphemous fantasy.

A group of new actors have joined the second season of the show, including Game of Thrones and Star Wars veterans. But the news stops there. We have no idea who they’re playing. So how about we crack open the comic series and take a guess?

game of thrones season 7 premiere

If HBO wants to be a big ‘ol showboat with how they reveal the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere date, they have earned that right. The wildly popular fantasy series has become the cable network’s flagship series. It’s less of a show than a cultural event, the thing that everyone watches and the thing that inspires a dozen think pieces every week. It’s the rare show that has actually entered the cultural lexicon. Call a politician a Lannister and many, many people will know exactly what you’re trying to say.

Anyway, HBO was a big ‘ol showboat with how they revealed the Game of Thrones season 7 premiere date: they put a screen inside a massive block of ice and slowly melted it with what looks like an offscreen flamethrower…er, dragon. They streamed this on Facebook. Thousands of people watched. Eventually, the date was revealed.

2017 Saturn Awards Nominations

If you’re one of those people who gets frustrated because the Academy Awards don’t nominate the science fiction, fantasy, and horror films you love for Best Picture or any of the other categories, then the Saturn Awards are for you.

The 2017 Saturn Award nominations have just been announced, and not only did Rogue One: A Star Wars Story come out on top with 11 nominations, but all those comic book movies that never had a chance in hell of getting a Best Picture nomination landed a bunch of nods. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War and even X-Men: Apocalypse all received nominations.

But this isn’t just a comic book movie celebration, because plenty of other genre films landed nominations too. Star Trek Beyond, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and 10 Cloverfield Lane are just some of the other films that ended up getting nominated for awards, too.

Check out the full list of 2017 Saturn Awards nominees below. Read More »
