HBO Trailer For 2016 Gives New Glimpse Of Daenerys, 'Game Of Thr
We're still months away from 'Game of Thrones' making its return to HBO for Season 6, but the premiere is close enough now for the cable channel to start teasing us with some quick glimpses of what's to come. Last week, we got a short clip with new character the Three-Eyed Raven providing the monologue over pivotal scenes from previous episodes. Now, HBO has released its trailer for 2016 and it includes a much-too-quick glimpse of the Mother of Dragons and two other key characters from the show.

HBO uploaded the clip to Twitter Sunday night, and if past years are any indication, the traile...

'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Teaser Trailer Released

12/5/2015 12:38pm EST
Kit Harington
HBO has released a Game Of Thrones teaser trailer for Season 6 of the popular show. Of course, the short video doesn't offer too much information about what everyone wants to know (is Jon Snow really dead?), but there are a few clues there that could really dictate how the new season is going to go.

According to Tech Insider, the voice that you hear at the beginning of the video belongs to Max von Sydow who plays Bloodraven. Although fans were first introduced to Bloodraven in Season 4, he will be a more prominent character in Season 6. From there, fans see a quick run through of a few ima...

Jon Snow Lives On 'Game Of Thrones'?

Does This 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Art Finally Answer The Jon
The debate over the fate of Jon Snow on 'Game of Thrones' has been raging non-stop among fans since the HBO show's Season 5 finale last spring. But now, the premium cable network may have given fans confirmation about what the character's future holds, courtesy of the first official artwork for Season 6.

The final scene of Season 5 showed Jon Snow, Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, being stabbed to death by his comrades over his decision to protect the Wildlings.

But book readers have been saying for years that the character, who is portrayed by actor Kit Harington on the show, may hav...

This Cast Move Has 'Game Of Thrones' Fans Scratching Their Heads

'Game Of Thrones' Adds New Red Priestess To The Mix For Season S
'Game of Thrones' fans are scratching their heads this week at the news reported Thursday that the HBO show has cast Melanie Liburd as a Red Priestess for Season 6.

The news, which was first reported by Deadline, is noteworthy because the Emmy-award winning show already has a character many refer to as the Red Priestess in Carice van Houten's Melisandre. Furthermore, many hardcore fans expected Melisandre to play a large role in what may happen in the coming season if those rumors about Jon Snow turn out to be true.

While there's a small possibility that Melisandre has been recast, a mor...

George R.R. Martin: 'Don't Believe Everything You Read Boys And Girls'

George R.R. Martin
Fans of the hit HBO show 'Game of Thrones' have been excited for the last couple of days with multiple outlets reporting that a GoT movie is in development and that the news was confirmed by series creator and author George R.R. Martin himself.

But there's just one problem. That same George R.R. Martin says the story is bogus. It looks like a British tabloid had a bit of fun, and none of the other entertainment sites bothered to fact check before rushing to report the news.

The trouble started when the Daily Star reported an "exclusive" regarding the movie this past Sunday. George R.R. Ma...

Funny, Scary, Cute & Corny: Check Out These Awesome 2015 Hallowe
It's that time of year once again where we all have to decide what we're going to dress up as for Halloween.

While most of the "original" costume ideas usually get all the accolades, current events and pop culture also play a big part in who's dressing up as who (or what).

There's plenty of fodder for coming up with the perfect costume this year thanks to current events like the 2016 presidential race (seriously, most of these people are scary in their own right), the Pope's visit to the U.S. and reality stars.

There's also a handful of animated movie characters that will be popular with...

Is GOT's Jon Snow Dead Or Not?

'Game Of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams On Jon Snow's Fate: 'He's
One of the biggest cliffhangers on the last season of "Game Of Thrones" was whether or not Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) was really dead. Snow appeared to die at the end of season five after being stabbed multiple times -- but of course no one wanted to believe it.

However, Harington was recently spotted in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the hit HBO series is filmed, and fans immediately began speculating that he was there to shoot season six. So he can't be dead, right?

But doesn't he look dead?

Then Harington reportedly told Belgium magazine Humo, "The show is like a double-ed...

"Game of Thrones" was one of the big winners at Saturday night's Creative Arts Emmy Awards, landing eight of parent network HBO's 29 Awards.

The ceremony set the stage for next week's Primetime Emmy Awards, which airs Sunday night on Fox and is hosted by comedian Andy Samberg.

Among other technical awards, Game Of Thrones landed trophies for non-prosthetic makeup, editing, casting, sound mixing and visual effects.

Prince Harry & 'Game Of Thrones' Rumors Heat Up

Prince Harry Offered 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Cameo?
Prince Harry is a huge fan of HBO's "Game Of Thrones," and show producers are reportedly looking for a way to give him a cameo on the hugely popular fantasy series.

Say, what?

British website the Daily Star reported the news back in May, and for some reason the rumor is popping up once again.

An insider revealed: "Harry has been offered a cameo in the sixth series of Game Of Thrones, which starts filming in Northern Ireland this summer. At the moment he's not made a decision, but the offer is on the table. There are plenty of opportunities for him to take up a role."

So Long, Westeros: 'Game Of Thrones' Ending After Season 8

8/3/2015 7:17pm EDT
Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones fans would probably live in Westeros forever if they could, but they've got some sad news coming- the series might be ending after Season 8.

According to Us Weekly, Michael Lombardo- that's the president of programming for HBO- dropped that particular bomb at the Television Critic's Association press tour on Thursday.

Lombardo was asked if Season 7 would be the end point for Game of Thrones, and he revealed the show would probably push just one year past that. "Seven seasons and out has never been the conversation," stated Lombardo. "The question is how many beyond the sev...

'Game Of Thrones' May Carry On Longer Than Expected!

Game of Thrones
HBO has revealed that hit series Game of Thrones may be going a bit further than the orignal seven planned seasons by producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

During the pay network's Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour on Thursday, programming president Michael Lombardo said that despite talks in the past about the show ending after its seventh season, which Benioff and Weiss have discussed during interviews, it now looks like eight seasons may be the goal -- and maybe even more than that!

"Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the conversation," Lombardo told critics at the TCA...

Emilia Clarke Dishes On 'Game Of Thrones' Season Six!

Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' is currently flying as high as she was in one of Season 5's final scenes on the back of her dragon, Drogon. She was nominated for an Emmy for her role on the show this past week, one of 'Game of Thrones' 24 total nominations this year.

Clarke sat down with the Los Angeles Times following news of her nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama to discuss her success and that of the show. But it's what Clarke had to say about the show's future that's exciting fans everywhere.

After much anticipation, the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations are here -- albeit with a bit of controversy aka funny.

It's that time of the year when your favorite actors, actresses, directors, writers, you name it (still, nothing for the celeb assistants who tolerate their idiosyncratic bosses) are showered with accolades for their perennial roles and endearing projects.

Not surprisingly, HBO and Game of Thrones left everyone and everything in the dust. And, yes, there is always a bit of controversy for Emmy Award nominations. This year's snub-rant award for the 2014-2015 televisio...

9 Reasons To Get Excited For 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6
We're still trying to wrap our heads around the season five finale of ‘Game of Thrones,’ which had to have been one of the craziest season finales in recent memory. Perhaps the hardest part of all, though, is the realization that we aren't getting another taste until season six next year (presumably in April again). It's nothing to be too bummed out about though, because there are a whole bunch of reasons why 'Game of Thrones' season six could be the best one yet, and here are just a couple of (very spoiler-heavy) reasons why.

Lena Headey's Reaction To The Humiliating Penance Walk On 'Game
Many shocking events occurred during the season five finale of "Game Of Thrones" on Sunday night, including Cersei's walk of atonement, which saw actress Lena Headey walking naked while angry peasants threw food and body fluids at her and a religious zealot kept proclaiming "Shame" over and over again beside her.

Headey opened up about filming the slut-shaming scene, brought on after Cersei confesses that she had an affair. The character is stripped naked, and her hair is shorn, leaving bloody cuts on her scalp. Then she is forced to walk the distance from her prison to her home.

Game of Thrones concluded its controversial fifth season Sunday night, and the Internet is ablaze with fans reacting to the multiple dramatic scenes that played out, which included multiple deaths. Don't go any further if you haven't watched last night's episode, dear reader. Here's who (probably) met their demise.

Stannis Baratheon

When you stop and think about it, what happened to self-appointed King Stannis Baratheon wasn't that surprising. The episode opened with half of Stannis' army abandoning him and his wife committing suicide by hanging. But that's what happens when you decide to...

'Game Of Thrones' Review: Burning Questions From The Season 5 Fi
Every season finale of Game of Thrones leaves us with an overabundance of questions that keep us awake at night until the next season finally premieres. “Mother’s Mercy” was no different. We had everything that makes for a good Game of Thrones finale: battles, introductions of interesting storylines, and shocking deaths. But there were also quite a bit head scratching moments, such as Sansa’s total lack of screen time, the whereabouts of the Tyrells, and why the Sand Snakes continue to exist.

Here are the biggest burning questions from “Mother’s Mercy:”

Prince Harry was caught flirting with "Doctor Who" star Jenna Coleman last weekend- and now there might be love in the air! the Prince was attending the Audi Polo Match on May 31, when The Sun caught him getting handsy with the "Doctor Who" actress.

According to a source for The Sun, Harry "took her by the hand and led her away from the crowd in the sponsor's tent. It was a very flirty, very tactile encounter. She was leaning into him and he had his hand on her knee. From their body language it looked like they were really enjoying each other's company."

Why Stannis is the World’s Worst Leader and Other Musings from “Dance with Dragons”

Stannis spent the last few weeks earning the hearts of the Game of Thrones viewers, only to destroy any lingering affection in a single moment. The show spent so much time building him up as somebody who would be a good leader, even if he is a bit on the boring side (or at least as his brother Renly believed.) He was endorsed by fallen hero, Ned Stark. He allies with the people of the North, including all the Starks. He actually cares about protecting The Wall. And he cares about basic grammar (or at least ...

Will Jon Snow Die On Game Of Thrones? Kit Harington Says No One
Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow on HBO's Game of Thrones, stopped by AOL Build on Monday in the aftermath of the show's crazy eighth episode of the season. "Hardhome" saw Jon Snow go to battle with the White Walkers, and was widely praised as one of the best episodes of Game of Thrones to date. Harington discussed this latest development on the show duirng his interview, but it's his words about the future that got people's attention.

Harington implied that viewers shouldn't count on Jon Snow or any other of the main characters on the series remaining safe, and said that the co...

Tyrion's Words Of Wisdom And Other 'GOT' Moments From Last Night

Game of Thrones
Are we watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead? Because “Hardhome” had some striking similarities to the latter. The White Walkers and their zombie horde, despite being brilliant showcases of CGI, feel like their part of a different show. It’s a bit jarring to go from watching politic intrigue and our favorite characters being tortured to 30 minutes of battles with zombies, giants, and otherworldly creatures. The episodes buildup never felt like it was leading to an epic battle, awkwardly placed mid-season. It’s almost as if the writers felt like they needed to feature an intense battl...

'Game of Thrones' Review: Memorable Moments from 'The Gift'
An episode without Arya, very little Jon Snow, and an extra helping of Samwell Tarly’s gnarly sex scene? An episode where the Sand Snakes continue to be the worst written characters in the history of the television medium? What did we do to deserve this, Game of Thrones?

“The Gift” starts out slow, filling time with mind-numbingly slow stuff at The Wall, Dornish women showing their breasts for no reason other than boredom, and sex scenes that serve no narrative purpose. But at least the hanging threads in the major storylines are still interesting. Here are the most memorable moments from ...

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage has teamed up with Coldplay for a new song that will be featured Thursday night during NBC's charity benefit "Red Nose Day," which will raise money for children living in poverty.

Dinklage sings about the characters who were killed off in previous seasons, like Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon and their respective sons.

"Remember Ned Stark, he was a lot of fun, but he didn't make it past season one," Dinklage sings in the song, written by Coldplay for a Game of Thrones musical they produced for Thursday night's charity event, which airs at 8pm.

'Game Of Thrones' Outrage Continues: Senator Boycotts Show After
Senator Claire McCaskill is boycotting "Game of Thrones" after watching Sunday night's episode, which included a "disgusting and unacceptable" rape scene.

In the episode titled "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken," newlywed Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) is assulted by her new husband Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon) on their wedding night as the servant Reek, AKA Theon Greyjoy, watches.

In response to the incident, the Missouri senator tweeted: "Ok, I'm done Game of Thrones. Water Garden, stupid. Gratuitous rape scene disgusting and unacceptable. It was a rocky ride that just ended."

Sophie Turner and Iwan Rheon in Game Of Thrones
Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has opened up about that scene from Sunday night's episode, saying that she "kinda loved it."

Spoiler Alert: The scene that Turner is referring to, of course, is the show's final scene, in which she and Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon) have just been married and are about to consummate their marriage.

While social media and the internet have blown up and called it rape because Ramsey ripped off his new wife's dress and forced her to bend over so he could do his business -- while having his servant Reek, FKA Theon Greyjoy, watch.

Has 'Game Of Thrones' Obsession With Rape Gone Too Far?

5/18/2015 8:41am EDT
Game of Thrones
Just when you thought the Game of Thrones character hadn’t dealt with enough horror, the show manages to pull out yet another horrific, unexpected scene. “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” constantly built up the tension from beginning to end. It starts with a relatively sleepy set of Arya scenes, filling the middle with rising stakes for every storyline, and then ends with the overwrought Sansa scene. Most of it was very well done, save for the consistently disappointing Sand Snakes, even if the direction of Sansa’s storyline is a continuation with the show’s obsession with rape.

It must be an unspoken rule in Game of Thrones that the Mother’s Day episode must always feature Daenerys playing mom to dragons, former slaves, and whoever else pops up. A couple of other mother related plots reared their heads in “Kill the Boy” to disturbing results. Brienne continues to honor her vow to the Stark mother, poor Walda Frey discovers she’s pregnant, Myranda reminds Sansa of her mom, and Roose Bolton tells his son the lovely story of the time he raped his mother.

Faith Militant VS Tommen

It’s almost thrilling to see every bad decision Cersei makes in her quest to destroy Queen Margaery’s life. This week she’s sunk to new lows and we couldn’t be happier. First she sends away Mace Tyrell to negotiate with the Iron Bank, leaving his seat on the council vacated and his children unprotected.

Next she reinstates the faith militant, essentially giving the Sparrows ultimate power over King’s Landing. They make quick work of their new power by clearing out all the brothels (...

The best thing this season of Game of Thrones has done is converge some of the many characters into single storylines. With a great many characters spread all across the many lands, there’s a danger of losing focus and having too much going on. That’s always been one of the major downfalls of the show, having too much going on and not enough time to fully focus on the characters that really matter.

But this season has put characters that were adrift on a path that will see them come together. The possibilities of the future storylines with characters that normally wouldn’t interact are one...
