Game of Thrones Season 4 header - Tyrion and Shae

The Game of Thrones Season 4 poster has arrived, and as you’d expect, it looks like bad, bad news for our favorite fantasy kingdom. Season 1 made it perfectly clear that no character death was off-limits, and Season 3 doubled down on that concept by killing off a whole swath of beloved characters.

Now, just in case you didn’t get the message the first gazillion times, the slogan for Season 4 has been revealed as “All Men Must Die” — the English translation of the High Valyrian saying “Valar Morghulis.” You could read it as a simple statement of fact, but given what we know about the twists and turns on this show we’re pretty sure it’s a threat. Remember, this is the show that turned the phrase “Winter Is Coming” into a dire prophecy.

Check out the poster, plus a huge batch of character posters, after the jump.

True Detective

HBO’s True Detective has earned near-universal acclaim from professional critics and ordinary viewers alike, but it hasn’t gone completely without controversy. One that’s been attracting more and more attention lately has to do with its dearth of strong female characters.

Some have grown irritated by the show’s bad treatment of women, others argue that “that’s the point,” and still others insist that the ladies on the show are more complex than we give them credit for. But pretty much everyone agrees that True Detective is nowhere near as generous with its supporting women as it is with its leading men.

The beauty of the show’s anthology structure, though, is that this isn’t an impossible problem to fix. Indeed, if a recent comment by show creator Nic Pizzolatto is any indication, the stars of True Detective‘s second season could very well be a couple of lady detectives. Hit the jump to find out what he said.

Game of Thrones Season 4 - Sansa and Tyrion (header)

Given all the awful stuff that’s happened in the first three seasons of Game of Thrones, it shouldn’t be a surprise that some Westerosi are thirsty for revenge. Indeed, just about every character in the latest promo seems to be seeking vengeance for one wrong or another, from little Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) to Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) to newcomer Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal).

Unfortunately, as Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) so rightly observes, “if you want justice, you’ve come to the wrong place.” Somehow, we suspect things are going to get so much worse for our favorite characters before they get better. Watch the latest Season 4 trailer after the jump.

A Teacher

Hannah Fidell‘s A Teacher didn’t get quite the acclaim or attention that Fruitvale Station or The Spectacular Now rdid at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, but it got some buzz nonetheless thanks to its scandalous premise, fine performances, and pared-down style. Now, it’s also getting a TV show.

Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, and Michael Costigan are set to executive produce an HBO drama based on Fidell’s film, with Fidell herself on board to write, executive produce, and possibly direct the pilot. Shameless (U.K.) showrunner Daniel Brocklehurst will also write and executive produce. Get more details on the series after the jump.

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.
