game of thrones sets open

Winterfell is opening its doors to the masses. Finally, we unwashed peasants can traverse the great halls of Winterfell and the dank hallways of Castle Black with the launch of Game of Thrones Legacy, a tourist experience that opens the Northern Ireland sets of Game of Thrones to tourists. The Legacy experience will launch in 2019, which gives you ample time before the final season of Game of Thrones premieres sometime in spring 2019.

But, if you can’t afford a ticket to Ireland right at this moment, there’s another Game of Thrones-related purchase you can make while biding your time for the eighth and final season: more Funko Pops, including one of A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. Maybe if you yell at his toy, he’ll write faster.

George RR Martin Ice Dragon movie

We’re never going to get to read The Winds of Winter, are we?

George R.R. Martin, the author of the acclaimed A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novels on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based, has seemingly found every excuse not to finish the next novel in that series and has instead been attaching himself to a variety of entertainment projects that pull him away from his writing desk. Now we can add a new one to the pile: a report says Martin is producing an animated movie adaptation of his children’s novel The Ice Dragon for Warner Bros. Animation.

nightflyers teaser

When George R.R. Martin‘s 1980 novella Nightflyers got its first feature film adaptation in 1987, the sci-fi film was the height of camp: low-budget, self-indulgent, and just plain weird. And though the cable network Syfy has a fair share of shows that embody exactly that kind of camp, its Nightflyers adaptation couldn’t be further from that description. The creepy, bloody, and freaky Nightflyers teaser gives us a glimpse of the serious and brooding Syfy take that Martin’s science-fiction horror story deserves.

Game of Thrones spin-off shows

Each episode of the upcoming eighth and final season of HBO’s smash hit fantasy series Game of Thrones reportedly cost $15 million, making it the most expensive prestige drama of all time. But what will the network do after the show ends? We already knew they had a bunch of potential Game of Thrones spin-off shows in development, so will they be tightening the purse strings for those shows when they first launch? Not a chance.

Oh, and an HBO exec has teased that all of your favorite characters may die in Game of Thrones season 8. As if you weren’t already preparing for that eventuality.

There are procrastinators, then there’s George R.R. Martin. The Song of Ice and Fire author may have stepped back from his executive producer role in HBO’s Game of Thrones to focus on finishing his long-in-the-works book The Winds of Winter, but another shiny object has caught his eye lately: Syfy’s TV adaptation of Martin’s 1980 sci-fi horror novella, Nightflyers.

To be fair, Martin has been involved with talks about the series since spring of this year, but he’s back to giving us updates on his blog about the upcoming adaptation. The newest announcement: Syfy has picked up the series for a 10-episode first season.
