For a while now it’s been clear that HBO’s Game of Thrones series could outpace George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire books. Now showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have finally admitted that it will. In other words, instead of the books spoiling the show, the show will soon start spoiling the books.
It’s an outcome both sides had hoped to avoid, but with Book 6 (The Winds of Winter) nowhere in sight, they’ve run out of options. “The show must go on,” said Benioff. Read more about Game of Thrones spoiling books after the jump. Read More »

The fifth season of Game of Thrones kicks off soon, with HBO having an April 12 premiere date for the first episode. With less than a month to go until the season opens, the network is dropping more promo items, with the main initiative today being a whole batch of new Game of Thrones S5 images. These highlight some new characters, and one returning character who is played by a new actor.
There’s also a clip featuring Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister and Conleth Hill as Lord Varys, and a little convo between Varys and Tyrion is always welcome. Check all the new Game of Thrones materials below. Read More »

While it’s not quite accurate to say we’re nearing the end of Game of Thrones, it may be true that we have more episodes behind us than ahead of us. George R.R. Martin’s fantasy saga has a definitive ending, even if he hasn’t written it down yet, and showrunners David Benioff and David Weiss have previously said they want to wrap up after “seven or eight” seasons.
But of course HBO isn’t going to give up its most popular show so easily. Programming president Michael Lombardo admits he’d “love” the show to run for longer, and wants to explore “all possible avenues” to make it happen. All possible avenues, that is, except a Game of Thrones movie. Find out why after the jump. Read More »
We knew that great Game of Thrones poster featuring Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) staring up at one of Daenerys’ dragons was just a preface to seeing the real scene in action, and the incredible new Game of Thrones season 5 trailer does not disappoint.
In addition to giving us the moving version of that poster, there’s all sorts of great new footage here, including (but hardly limited to) the “breaking the wheel” monologue from Daenerys, in which she promises doom for the cycle of family violence that has defined politics in Westeros, and more footage of Jonathan Pryce’s character the High Sparrow. I was already excited for this new season of the show, but this footage is kicking that interest into overdrive. Read More »
A new Game of Thrones season 5 poster is out, along with a couple of new clips. The poster is striking, because it features Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) standing on the prow of a ship, staring up at one of Daenerys’ dragons. And the clips are solid, because one features the hint of a little conversational conflict, while the other marks the return of fan-favorite character Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). See it all below. Read More »

Game of Thrones the show is all gloom and doom. If you’re unlucky, you’re poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death. If you’re really unlucky, you’re suffering a torment worse than death itself. And even if you are kinda lucky, all it means is that you can look forward to getting poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death on a different day.
Game of Thrones the set, however, is a different story. As a new blooper reel reveals, the actors are having a much better time than the characters they’re portraying, whether they’re giggling over flubbed lines or dealing with an unruly cat. Watch the Game of Thrones Season 4 blooper reel after the jump. Read More »

Part of the fun of Game of Thrones is that you never really know who’s going to die next. That is, unless you’ve read the books — then you already have a pretty good idea of who’ll survive or perish. But George R.R. Martin warns that won’t be forever.
The author teased that the upcoming season of Game of Thrones will kill off characters who remain alive in the books, calling out the producers for being “even bloodier” than he is. More on the Game of Thrones character deaths after the jump. Read More »
