Game of Thrones Hardhome Night King

In Season 5, Game of Thrones sent Jon Snow north of the Wall to convince the wildlings to ally with the Night’s Watch against the undead. Well — kind of. In a more strictly accurate sense, Game of Thrones sent Kit Harington and some other actors to Ireland, to swing some prop swords in front of a green screen on set. VFX wizards then turned that footage into the epic fantasy battle we saw on our TVs.

But that’s the thing about the effects on Game of Thrones. They’re often so good, it’s easy to forget they’re effects at all. That is, until something like this Game of Thrones Hardhome VFX breakdown hits, and we get to see just how much work goes into these sequences. Watch the video after the jump.  Read More »

Legends of Tomorrow concept art

Back in May, thanks to the traditional upfronts presentations from all the major networks, we got a fun teaser trailer The CW’s new DC Comics TV series adaptation DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The show is spinning off the established shows Arrow and The Flash, following time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), who is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat.

The show may not hit the air until 2016, but Warner Bros. Television is bringing the show to Comic-Con along with the new CBS series Supergirl and The CW’s other two aforementioned DC Comics series. And just before fans get a new glimpse at the show, a pretty slick piece of concept art has surfaced online showing the titular team using their superpowers in a pretty flashy spectacle.

Stephen Colbert interview Eminem

We’re in the heart of summer, and while blockbuster season is keeping us occupied for the time being (not to mention Comic-Con next week), a part of me looks forward to the fall when new TV shows start to hit the air. One of those shows will be The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and a new taste of what we can expect from David Letterman’s replacement has just surfaced.

We’ve already seen a hilarious teaser for The Late Show, where Colbert shaved the famous “Colbeard,” but now he’s done some serious prepping for the show by taking over the public access show Only in Monroe, straight from Monroe, Michigan. And who better for Colbert to interview than Michigan native and rapping sensation Eminem. Oh, and the interview goes on for 20 minutes. It’s just as awesome as you’d expect it to be.
