Birth Rights and Deadly Wights: New Game of Thrones S7 Trailer Drops

Birth Rights and Deadly Wights: New Game of Thrones S7 Trailer Drops

Yesterday, HBO brightened everyone’s Thursday a little when they released the first trailer for Game of Thrones Season 7. In a departure from the frantic, information-packed trailers of past years, this one focuses only on a few characters and sets a dark, brooding tone for the upcoming season, which will premiere later this year on July 16th. HBO has been largely reticent about what the upcoming season will hold, and it continues this trend in the new trailer, which tells us little, instead, reaffirming the stakes, and reminding us of successes some main characters have enjoyed. The scene is set, the rulers are seated, but above it...

In previous years, full-length Game of Thrones trailers were usually out in February, but given that...

Westworld and Game of Thrones: Violent Delights

Warning: Major Westworld S1 Spoilers and Game of Thrones S6 Spoilers  In Westworld, which had its first season earlier this autumn, HBO gave its own hit show, Game of Thrones a run for its money. While there weren’t any dragons or otherworldly ice monsters to be found in Westworld’s endless desert expanses, there were still many of the same qualities in the show that have endeared fans to Game of Thrones for years– complex plot-lines, multi-faceted characters, and epic world-building. At the same time, there were also the graphic displays of carnage, copulation, and cruelty: not surprising given that this has become a...

Prequels Are Coming? HBO Considers A ‘Game of Thrones’ Successor

With Game of Thrones in the midst of filming its penultimate season, HBO is already thinking ahead about how to continue the sweeping success of the award-winning fantasy show long after the final credits roll. The end of Game of Thrones, which began airing in 2011, has been in sight for a long time now.
