JJ Abrams is one of those filmmakers who loves to hide easter eggs in his films and television shows. And we love to go on the easter egg hunt and find them. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is packed with inside jokes, cameos, fun references to past films, as well as some things that pay homage to the inspiration and fandom of the series.

How many Game of Thrones cameos did you spot? Is it possible the Ark of the Covenant from Raiders of the Lost Ark might be hidden in this movie somewhere? Find out this and over 50 other Star Wars: The Force Awakens easter eggs, after the jump.

Game of Thrones Season 5 - Ramsay and Sansa

Game of Thrones has never been shy about getting dark, which is kind of what we love about it — the execution of Ned Stark in Season 1 was a definitive statement that this fantasy epic was throwing the usual tropes out the window. Even so, there’s a right way and a wrong way to handle sensitive material, and in Season 5 the show came under fire for its treatment of rape.

Those criticisms have apparently reached the ears of series creators Dan Weiss and David Benioff. According to director Jeremy Podeswa, the discussion inspired Weiss and Benioff to reconsider the show’s approach to rape, and change “a couple of things” about Season 6 as a result.

Game of Thrones Season 5 - Cersei

The very first Game of Thrones Season 6 teaser premiered last week, but as exciting as it was, it didn’t contain any actual new footage from Season 6. For that, we have to turn to HBO’s end-of-year trailer, which looks back at the year that was and ahead at the year that’s coming.

Game of Thrones is just one of many shows and movies highlighted in the video, so don’t expect a full, meaty trailer. But at this point, we’ll take what we can get. The new Game of Thrones Season 6 footage features characters both beloved and reviled, but a certain Lord Snow remains in hiding. Watch it after the jump.  Read More »

game of thrones season 6 teaser

When the fifth season of Game of Thrones concluded with a main character lying dead on the ground, countless fans took to social media to express their disgust, declaring that they would never watch the show again. The very next day, they all started counting down the days until the next season. This is the way of the Game of Thrones fan and they’ve been this way since poor Ned Stark had his head lobbed off back in season one.

The next season of HBO’s flagship series won’t begin airing until next year, so fans have to bundle up and survive the harsh winter if they want to feel the bloody warmth of Westeros again. But HBO knows your pain and from their high castle walls, they have thrown us, the peasants, a bone. Yes, it’s the first trailer for the new season. Praise the Seven!

Watch the first Game of Thrones season 6 teaser after the jump.
