Game of Thrones Season 4 - Joffrey (header)

Until Game of Thrones returns on April 6, we’ll take what we can get from the HBO fantasy show. So far, that’s been a trailer and some Vine teasers, and now, a big batch of stills. The new images offer closer looks at some of our favorite returning characters as well as some notable new ones.

There are Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) doing her best “bitch, please” face; Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) offering comfort to poor sad Sansa (Sophie Turner); and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) looking clean for the first time in like two seasons, just to name a few of the familiar faces we’re excited to see.

In terms of new people, there are Pedro Pascal and Indira Varma as Oberyn Martell and Indira Varma, who hail from Dorne in the South, and Michael Huisman as the new Daario Naharis, replacing Ed Skrein. (Sorry, book readers, this one doesn’t have a blue beard either.) Check ‘em all out after the jump.

Game of Thrones Season 3

We know, we know. The “teaser for a teaser” trend is getting out of hand. But after the epic, blood-soaked insanity that was Season 3 of Game of Thrones, we can’t help but latch on to whatever we can get of Season 4. And right now, that means we’re poring over these five action-packed Vines.

The brief clips feature fan favorite characters like Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), and Jon Snow (Kit Harington), along with new character Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), in various degrees of peril and/or badassery. The full trailer won’t premiere for another couple of days, but for now you can watch the snippets after the jump.

Noah Aronofsky 2

Briefly: Darren Aronofsky and New Regency have had a good relationship; the director made The Fountain under an old first-look deal with New Regency, and they worked together to produce Noah, which New Regency financed with Paramount. And while there’s been talk of difficulties with Paramount and Noah, it seems like Aronofsky and New Regency are working together well enough to sign a new deal.

Aronofsky and his Protozoa Pictures signed a new three-year first-look deal with New Regency for feature development, at the same time as Protozoa has signed a similar deal with HBO to develop shows for Aronofsky to direct for television.

“It is a thrill to be re-teaming with my old friends at New Regency,” Aronofsky said. “Arnon [Milchan] has been a great supporter since we made The Fountain together. It is a golden age for the small screen and moving into that realm with HBO as partners is a dream come true. I am excited to see Protozoa’s output explode over the next few years.” [Deadline]

Girls

Hannah Hovarth may be kind of a screwup, but the show around her certainly isn’t. HBO confirmed today that it has renewed Girls for a fourth season, three days before the start of its third season. That’s an even faster renewal than it got last year, when HBO announced Season 3 two episodes into Season 2.

Season 4 will shoot this spring, to air sometime in 2015. There’s no official word yet on how many episodes it’ll consist of, but we’re guessing it’ll have 12 like Season 3 did. (Seasons 1 and 2 were ten episodes each.)

In the meantime, Season 3 should have plenty to keep us busy. A just-released clip from the Season 3 premiere, “Females Only,” offers a taste of where the main characters are at this point in their lives. Check it out after the jump.

‘Game of Thrones’ to Return in April

game-of-thrones-second-sons

Winter has come, as the Starks have long warned us, but it won’t be around forever. And when it leaves, spring will bring a new season of Game of Thrones along with it.

HBO announced today that the fantasy drama would return for its fourth season Sunday, April 6 at 9:00 PM. That’s roughly the same time of year it’s premiered the last three seasons, so no surprises there. The new season will consist of ten episodes and will pick up where Season 3 left off, depicting the second half of Book 3.

Most of the principal cast members are expected to return — or the ones whose characters survived Season 3, anyway. New actors include Pedro Pascal as Oberyn Martell of Dorne, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Margaery’s father Mace Tyrell, Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris from the Iron Bank of Braavos.

Additionally, some roles were recast in the interim. Michiel Huisman will replace Ed Skrein in Season 4 as Daario Naharis, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson will take over for Ian Whyte as Ser Gregor Clegane, and Dean-Charles Chapman steps in for Callum Wharry as Joffrey’s brother Tommen.[Variety]
