Game of Thrones - Daenerys Targaryen

Briefly: The battle for the Iron Throne will continue in 2014. HBO has officially renewed Game of Thrones for a fourth season after its successful third season premiere earlier this week.

Based on the series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, the first two seasons of the show have used the first two books as blueprints. The rumor is the show will begin to slow down with season three, splitting each book into two seasons. Hopefully, this will allow Martin to finish the rest of the series in print. (A Song of Fire and Ice is planned as seven books, only five have been published thus far.)

Our /Film Game of Thrones podcast, A Cast of Kings, will surely talk much more about this on Monday. [Deadline] Read More »

Game of Thrones Season 3 - Daenerys

For all the hype and buzz Game of Thrones gets, it’s a little surprising to realize how little of our time we spend actually watching the show. Each season consists of a measly ten one-hour episodes, aired over ten weeks. And while those individual installments are jam-packed with drama and action, that still leaves 42 other weeks of the year with no Game of Thrones at all.

No doubt that means plenty of fans would be eager to spend a lot more time in Westeros if only they had the chance. And HBO is apparently considering giving it to them. In a recent interview, author George R.R. Martin revealed that there have been some talk about the possibility of a Game of Thrones prequel series, maybe based on his Dunk and Egg novellas. Hit the jump to 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.

It’s the kind of topic that keeps geeks arguing late into the night: Which is more badass, Westeros or Middle-earth? Would Jaime Lannister win in a duel against Aragorn? Are Wargs scarier than direwolves? Could Gimli take on the Mountain?

Sadly, the odds of us ever finding out for certain are slim to none, since there’s unlikely to be a crossover special anytime soon. But as the creator of Game of Thrones (or A Song of Ice and Fire for you book nerds) and a longtime fan of J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin seems as well equipped as anyone to offer some answers. Hit the jump to find out what he had to say.

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.)

While I’m sure that Luck, Life’s Too Short, and Angry Boys each have their charms, it’s HBO’s spring lineup I’m really looking forward to. Between Game of Thrones‘ return and the debuts of Judd Apatow’s Girls and Armando Iannucci’s Veep, I already know exactly what I’ll be doing each Sunday from April through June. And now, at long last, the network’s provided some premiere dates to mark on the calendar. Get the details and watch the trailers after the jump.
