'Game Of Thrones' VFX Reel Makes All The Deaths Extra Gross

Nice work, nerds. So it turns out that the actors who played the characters that died this past season on Game of Thrones are all still alive and well. All of their horrible ends were merely "special effects" created by a "computer." Here is a VFX reel that delineates what was shot practically and what was enhanced in post. I guess this just leaves us to assume that the dragons were actually real.

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.


'Game Of Thrones' Second Season Teaser

"You win or you die." Is this about Words With Friends? HBO had a surprise hit on their hands last year with Game of Thrones, presumably due to all the nudity and decapitations HBO is famous for providing its viewers. And they're doing the smart thing and not letting anybody see any beheadings for free, if this new teaser that just premiered is any indication. Still, you might be into it if you like the show. Enjoy, and try not to speak with a British accent for the rest of the day - unless you actually are British, of course.

Pick up some Ice Breakers. Nothing spoilery revealed here. It's what you've come to expect -- walking around in the desert, walking around in the forest, walking around in snow, and Arya getting terrorized by adults. The uje.


HBO Reminds Us That 'Game Of Thrones' Season Two Will Rule

An in production trailer for the second season of HBO's Game Of Thrones is here to remind you to clear some unnecessary facts and memories out of your brain because when the series returns, you'll be introduced to even more characters with complex connections to one another.

'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.
