'Game Of Thrones' Creators Also Left Feeling Horrible By Last Week's Episode

Spoilers. If you haven't watched the latest episode of Game Of Thrones, a) why are you on the Internet?, and b) don't watch this video unless you want one of the series' bigger moments spoiled. Those who watched 'The Rains of Castamere" went to bed with an icky, horrible feeling that, if they are me, are still carrying around. Ignoring their work, duties at home, and wondering how they'll ever experience happiness again. Turns out, we're not alone. Series creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff feel the same way, and they're the guys who cast this sadness upon us. Here they discuss what went into the much talked about episode and the emotional difficulties of having to craft such a thing. It's refreshing to see that although they are MONSTERS, at least they are conflicted monsters. Sigh, guess I'm Team Stannis now.

Get Pumped For 'The Mountain And The Viper' With This 'Game Of Thrones' Recap

The Ass-Handing In King's Landing is this weekend. It's been a season full of jaw-dropping moments on Game of Thrones and the next episode looks like it will not disappoint in this regard. Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff tease that when Oberyn Martell takes on The Mountain in the upcoming Ass-Handing In King's Landing, it will be the show's best combat sequence. "It’s the culmination of 20 years of anger and hatred and thirst for vengeance coming to a head in this amazing set piece that [stunt coordinator Paul Herbert and swordmaster C.C. Smiff] have put together. The fight delivers beyond our expectations.” In other words, lots of kicking and flipping.


HBO Gets Medieval With 'Game Of Thrones' Trailer

"Then it's agreed. We're going to do a show based on "Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament." The first non-teaser trailer for "Game of Thrones" is up, and it looks exactly like HBO had a development meeting and the executives walked away saying, "Then it's agreed. We're going to do a show based on "Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament." The trailer focuses far more on the setting and period of the show than it does on the intricacies of the plot, which isn't much of a criticism, seeing as how this is the first real look at a show that is still seven weeks away from premiering, but it's doubtful that casual HBO viewers will be left salivating after this look. A dude gets beheaded, guys joust, a midget runs, and a few people have unnaturally blonde hair. Those are the big takeaways from the attached video. HBO may assume (perhaps rightfully) that people will ascertain the plot after watching the first episode, which many will simply because, hey, it's a new HBO series. (Warming Glow)


HBO Previewing 'Game of Thrones', Plus A Trailer

This is the coolest thing to happen since the mighty Gronyok was slain by Tyrus the Great. The upcoming HBO series "Game of Thrones" is getting a fair amount of buzz. Mostly because any new show on HBO will get a fair amount of buzz, but still. Anyway, in anticipation of the new show, HBO is airing a one-time-only preview of the first 15 minutes of the first episode on Sunday, April 3rd at 9 PM. If you're one of those rubes who doesn't have HBO, you'll be able to watch it online and on-demand the day after that. If you still don't think you can wait that long for a taste of "Game of Thrones," you can watch this new trailer, which is full of swords and horses and talking like Thor. (via /Film and Deadline)


'Game Of Thrones'. Season 5. Trailer. Here. Now.

Ok. I'm ready for the premiere now. In *sigh* two and a half months. To the delight of millions of fans throughout the world, the Game of Thrones season 5 trailer has been released, like so many beautiful doves, into the wild. It came before the IMAX presentation of its episodes, and was pretty clearly shot with a fan's camera. Still, it's worth checking out if you're a fan. I don't really feel like discussing the plot points here, but I will direct you to this Variety page where they run through every bit of imagery there is. Me? I prefer to just let it wash over me. Mostly because I can't remember the fate of about 90% of the characters, but also because the trailer is pretty cool with that David Bowie cover. WATCH IT.


There's Good And Bad On Every Side In 'Game Of Thrones' Season Four Trailer

April 6th! HBO revealed a trailer for Game of Thrones season four and it's nothing short of ohmygodIwannawatchthisshowrightnow. The trailer hints that more of your favorites will meet horrible ends when Daeneyrs informs Jorah that whether good or bad, those who oppose her have a choice. Dragon or unich, which would you like to be murdered by? We're caught up with each faction. Daeneyrs has grown stronger. Joffrey is still a dick. Jon Snow is still fighting Wildlings. Arya is still seeking revenge. Bran is still doing stuff in the forest. Stannis is still depending on dark magic. Jamie tries on a new hand. And let's assume Theon is trying on his own prosthetic. Wow. George R.R. Martin really knows how to stretch out a narrative. It also looks like this could be the season where acting terrible and entitled catches up to the Lannisters as a man from Tywin's past arrives looking for revenge. How that will unfold, I'm not sure but I've been warned by book readers that a storm of crazy is on the horizon. I can't wait to see what happens next. But not badly enough to actually read. Ewww, gross.


Third ‘Game Of Thrones’ Trailer Hits HBO

The third teaser trailer for HBO's "Game of Thrones" premiered last night on HBO. Based on the books George R.R. Martin, the fantasy series will most likely fulfill every dork's wet dream (at least until The Hobbit hits theaters). The third teaser trailer for HBO's "Game of Thrones" premiered last night on HBO. Based on the books by George R.R. Martin, the fantasy series will most likely fulfill every dork's wet dream (at least until The Hobbit hits theaters). Considering the trailer featured the three B's of fantasy films (beards, blonds, and beheadings), I, myself, am not ashamed to say I was a little turned on by the whole thing, which is odd, considering the amount of radiation this laptop has pumped into my crotch. Thanks, HBO! (Deadline)


Cold Winds Are Rising: 'Game Of Thrones' Teaser Trailer

The bitch is back. Tonight, for a brief moment, I was saddened by the fact that season two of Boardwalk Empire was drawing to a close. But as much as I love the show, the new teaser trailer for the second season of Game of Thrones made me forget all about Nucky Thompson and his prohibition-ear cronies. After all, bootlegging gangsters don't hold a candle to knights, White Walkers, and newly hatched dragons. Upon rereading that last sentence, I finally understand why I didn't get laid until my late 20's. At any rate, the trailer features a voice over from a new character, Stannis Baratheon, rightful heir to the Iron Throne. It also features all your old favorites, as well as your least favorite, Joffrey. However, the clip featured no exposed breasts, which seems to be a drastic departure from season one. Watch for yourself.


Thank The Lord For This 25-Minute "Game Of Thrones' Recap Video

Something about the complex nature of Game of Thrones plus an inability to comprehend much of anything on Sunday nights has left many with no idea what's going on heading into the GoT premiere this weekend. Lots of stuff going on. Stuff that I can't spoil, but this video sure can. So take a look (a 25-minute look, but that's still better than re-watching the series because you were on your iPad the whole time it aired) and get up to speed for the big premiere. Historically the show doesn't show much mercy to those who can't keep up, so use everything at your disposal.
