‘Game of Thrones’ comes to theaters to distract you from the long wait for Season 8

We still don’t know when the final season of Game of Thrones will air, which means we have plenty of time to revisit all the big twists of Season 7 while we wait.

HBO plans to distract us from our clock-watching with eight fan screenings taking place in three cities (New York, Chicago and Los Angeles) this winter, with the most action-packed episode of Season 7 getting the big screen treatment.

In episode 4, “The Spoils of War,” Daenerys brings her dragons and Dothraki hordes to Westeros for the first time in a stunning attack against Jaime Lannister’s forces, and you know you want to see Drogon and Dany laying waste to the Lannister army on the biggest screen possible.  Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ reveals why creating one wight is more complicated than ten thousand

Game of Thrones had plenty of spectacular moments in its Season 7 finale, but in the final installment of HBO’s behind-the-scenes “Game Revealed” series, director Jeremy Podeswa explains that one of the episode’s most complicated stunts probably seemed pretty simple to viewers.

When Jon and Daenerys bring a wight to King’s Landing to try and convince Cersei and Jaime to join forces with them, the action centers around a single creature, but Podeswa notes that making the zombie look suitably convincing takes a lot of work.

You’ll never look at the zombie polar bear from ‘Game of Thrones’ the same way after this video

After seeing the Night King take down a dragon with an ice javelin, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about all of the other epic moments in episode 6 of Game of Thrones Season 7, but a new behind-the-scenes video from HBO sheds a little light on another intense scene from “Beyond the Wall.”

The Magnificent Seven’s terrifying encounter with a wight polar bear was a perfect illustration of the collaboration between departments that goes into every scene. The actors were working in what Kit Harington describes as “a big CGI box,” and some of them admitted that they had a hard time visualizing their undead foe, considering what was on set for them to play against.  Read more…

Please enjoy Arya and Brienne training for their ‘Game of Thrones’ fight like badasses

It was one of the highlights of an uneven season 7: Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) returning to Winterfell and showcasing her mad sword skills by sparring with Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie).

But it didn’t go down the way you think. For one thing, that wasn’t Maisie doing an incredible acrobatic leap from her back, even though CGI fooled you into thinking it was.

Now that HBO’s behind-the-scenes video series The Game Revealed has reached Season 7 episode 4, we have this breakdown of the Brienne-Arya choreography — which is well worth a watch.    Read more…

Why Jon Snow is doomed to kill Daenerys on ‘Game of Thrones’

For years now Game of Thrones fans have been theorizing about the “bittersweet” ending that George R. R. Martin promised them. But one fan theory predicts the most perfectly sorrowful — yet satisfying — conclusion to the story, with Jon and Daenerys’ tragic romance at the center of it all.

A recent Reddit essay makes a convincing argument for an interpretation of the the Prince That Was Promised prophecy that could change everything. In line with Game of Thrones‘ history of plot twists, it proposes a finale where Jon and Daenerys don’t actually save the day with a gallant military victory over the White Walkers like we expect.  Read more…

Being chained up on set got a little too real for one ‘Game of Thrones’ star

Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma) and her daughter Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers) didn’t die on screen in Game of Thrones Season 7, but it turns out that the Sand Snakes’ demise was still pretty stressful for the actresses while filming. 

In a new behind-the-scenes video looking back at the season, Varma reveals that life started imitating art on set during Ellaria’s showdown with Cersei, thanks to some heavy duty wristwear.

“Rosabell and I had to wear manacles and we were tied to the wall and we had trouble, because either they’d come undone, because we were fighting against them, or couldn’t get them off,” Varma says. “Literally, at the end of the day, I was like ‘mate, I can’t get it off, can someone help me?’ and everyone’s gone. Pete from props is like, ‘I think we need a saw,’ and I had to be sawn out.” Read more…

New ‘Game of Thrones’ fan theory adds a delicious twist to this Season 7 death

It’s been so long since we got a new book in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series (six years and counting), it’s sometimes easy to forget that anything exists outside of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

David Benioff and Dan Weiss’ adaptation has deviated pretty dramatically from its source material at this point — some major characters who are dead on the show but still alive in Martin’s novels include Stannis, Shireen, Selyse, Myrcella and Tommen Baratheon; Ramsay and Roose Bolton; Rickon Stark; Walder Frey; Mance Rayder; the Tyrells; Hodor; Shaggydog; Summer; pretty much everyone in Dorne, and the show’s most recent fatality, Petyr Baelish.

‘Game of Thrones’ star reveals the moment that broke Jaime and Cersei forever

“I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time,” Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says, when asked how it felt portray Jaime Lannister finally abandoning his sister (and lover) in the Season 7 finale. 

“I think that he’s seen her do crazy things before, but this is lying to everyone, and lying to him. You’ve got to go, ‘How much can this guy take before it becomes too much?’ It was a great scene to shoot,” he reveals in a new interview with Making Game of Thrones, the show’s behind-the-scenes production blog.

Jaime had a rough season. He was belittled by Cersei, mocked by Euron, needled by Olenna and nearly roasted by Daenerys, but it wasn’t until he was faced with the very real threat of the White Walkers — and realized that his sister would rather sit on the sidelines and let her enemies kill each other than honor her word — that he finally came to his senses. The woman he loves might just be beyond saving.  Read more…

You probably missed this subtle clue about Cersei’s betrayal in the ‘Game of Thrones’ finale

The costumes on Game of Thrones aren’t just Emmy-winning works of art — they also give us insight into the mental states of our favorite characters, often offering clues about their narrative trajectories. 

Take, for example, the subtle appearance of fur in Daenerys’ clothing after she and Jon Snow started growing closer. Some fans may have blamed the approach of winter for the cozier ensemble, but considering that the new material appeared just before Dany set off to roast thousands of Lannisters in one of the show’s hottest battles to date, that theory holds about as much water as a drowning Kingslayer.
