game of thrones showrunners

The two men who’ve steered HBO’s Game of Thrones for several years running just chose their first feature film. The question, however, is when they’ll get to it.

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have a made a deal with 20th Century Fox to write and direct an adaptation of Dirty White Boys, a prison escape novel by Stephen Hunter. The pair are currently finishing the fourth season of Game of Thrones, and recently signed to do at least two more, so they haven’t even begun writing yet. But it’s a project they’re passionate about and want to make as soon as they can. Read More »

In the first season of Game of Thrones, the Stark motto was the recurring refrain: “Winter is coming.” As we enter the third season, the warnings have gotten even more ominous: “Death is coming, for everyone and everything.”

After months of teasers, behind-the-scenes featurettes, still images, and posters, we finally have our first real look at some footage from the third season of the HBO fantasy series. A new trailer premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live Friday night, and while it’s only 60 seconds long it’s certainly enough to get fans excited all over again. Check it out after the jump.

There’s a pivotal scene in the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones in which the spiteful royal Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) orders his traumatized betrothed to get an eyeful of the decapitated heads he’s used to decorate the castle walls. A couple of the faces are ones familiar to poor Sansa (Sophie Turner). But one of the others is more likely to have been recognized by viewers watching at home, because it looks an awful lot like former president George W. Bush — as producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss themselves pointed out in a DVD commentary.

While the pair have insisted that the model’s likeness to Bush is “not a political statement,” unsurprisingly, the choice to use a Bush lookalike rubbed some folks the wrong way. HBO and the producers have since issued apologies, promising to scrub the head from future DVDs. Read their comments after the jump.

Believe it or not, there’s just 34 days left to go until the second season premiere of HBO’s Game of Thrones. And as that date approaches, the teasers and trailers have been getting ever so slightly more revealing. The latest ditches the dramatic narration of the last two, so we get more dialogue this time around — and, consequently, a better idea of the struggles the characters will be facing in the upcoming season. Watch the video after the jump. (Spoilers for Season One follow, obviously.)

Though I was excited by the earlier teaser for Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, at the risk of sounding like a swooning fangirl, I have to say that even that pales in comparison to this new trailer. This time around, it’s Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) who takes over narrating duties, explaining exactly who everyone is and what they’re doing — without actually revealing anything at all, of course. Tricky eunuch bastard. Naturally, Golden Globe and Emmy winner Peter Dinklage gets some good face time as well. Watch the video after the jump. (Warning: Spoilers for Season 1 follow.)

After months of casting news and hilariously unrevealing teasers for Game of Thrones, we finally have a real look at some footage from Season 2. HBO has released a behind-the-scenes featurette about the making of the upcoming season, and though we still don’t get to see a whole lot, we do get some good glimpses of returning characters like Arya (Maisie Williams) and Catelyn (Michelle Fairley), as well as new ones including Margaery (Natalie Dormer), Melisandre (Carice van Houten), and Stannis (Stephen Dillane).

Plus, series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are on hand to talk in pretty general terms about the challenges and rewards of filming the show’s second season. Watch the mostly spoiler-free video after the jump.
