Sky Atlantic will begin broadcasting Game of Thrones  

Article by Tianya


It has been adapted for TV by David Benioff and DB Weiss. Benioff said no one had ever done fantasy “the HBO way, where the focus is on character and psychology rather than spectacle”.

Stuart Murphy, Sky Atlantic director of programmes, added: “We know our customers’ anticipation for the series has reached fever pitch, so we wanted to ensure they could see the show as close to its US broadcast as humanly possible. The series is a true spectacle that will surprise and captivate audiences, and it’s a huge testament to HBO’s bravura film-making that they continue to subvert the genres we know and love, this time in the fantasy genre.”

In related news, HBO Canada has announced that they will be airing the series simultaneously with HBO in the US, which means an April 17th premiere for HBO Canada subscribers.

Check out the rest of the announced air dates around the world at our International Airings page.

Winter Is Coming: Great news for all our UK-based readers! This was as close as they could get to the HBO air date without actually airing it before HBO. This means, of course, that you UK readers will have to wait an extra day before joining in the discussions on each week’s episode. But I suspect that is much better than having to wait weeks and weeks.HBO has heard your pleas for more Game of Thrones goodness and answered with an all-new behind-the-scenes video entitled Invitation to Westeros. The 3:30 long video, posted over at Making Game of Thrones, gives us clips from new interviews with Benioff, Weiss, Martin and others, interspersed with some brand-new footage. Take a peek!Disclaimer: Season two has not been officially greenlit. We are creating these posts for discussion and speculation.

Continuing our series of casting speculation posts for season two, we move from Stannis to his right-hand (wo)man, Melisandre of Asshai. The Red Priestess is a substantial role so I think we can expect someone we have heard of here. Tower of the Hand on what Mel looks like: beautiful, with a slender figure, full breasts, and a heart-shaped face. Her hair is burnished copper, her eyes are red, and her skin is pale.Tricia HelferTricia Helfer – Canadian actress Tricia Helfer is best known for her work on Battlestar Galactica, but has also had regular roles in Burn Notice and Dark Blue. She was a popular fan suggestion for Cersei, prior to the pilot being cast. And, in fact, she even auditioned for the role that ultimately went to Lena Headey. Since then she has read the first three books and is now a big fan. I’m sure she would be thrilled at a chance to get on the show again, this time as Melisandre. But does she have the right look? And will she be able to impress enough with her acting?

Christina HendricksChristina Hendricks – Hendricks should be well-known to geek audiences from her role as Saffron in Firefly. To everyone else, she is known as Joan Holloway in Mad Men. My personal favorite for the role, there is no denying she’s got the voluptuousness required for the Red Lady. And the hair color. But does she have the acting chops? And another potential problem is she is American. But the big question would be her availability. Mad Men is still going strong and her work there might prevent her from flying to Northern Ireland for five months this year.

Gong LiGong Li – As we said, Mel being from Asshai allows the producers to go with a more exotic look for this role, if they want. As probably one of the most well-known and well-respected Chinese actresses working in Hollywood today, Gong Li could be a nice fit for a more exotic Mel. She has done most of her work in China, but has also branched out into Hollywood movies, such as Memoirs of a Geisha, Miami Vice, and Hannibal Rising. One potential issue: she has no TV credits on her resume, that I can see. Would she be willing to take a major role in a potentially long running TV series?

Monica BellucciMonica Bellucci – An Italian actress, Belluci should be well known to American audiences from her role in the Matrix sequels. She also appeared in Tears of the Sun, The Passion of the Christ, and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Belluci certainly has the seductive beauty associated with Melisandre. And she even brings a certain amount of exoticism to the role as well. She seems to have the right amount of name recognition. Like Gong Li, she has never taken a recurring TV role, but her movie career has cooled off recently, so a jump to a major HBO drama might be a good move for her.

Watch Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 2 The Night Lands  

Article by Alenaz Krejcikovax


Anyway, the forward program of the season opens with a entitle dropping to his demise and ends with several soul hit, with teemingness of separate foul squeezed in between. It went by so hot that I had to ticker the film twice. I’d be impressed if any new audience or non-book readers could get through the period without their theme moving. So umpteen parcel lines and characters are introduced, but I intellection the installment did a healthy job of generally stringing them all together by panning stake and onward to the big red comet in the sky. Despite everything effort on in this program, tho’, it didn’t property too rushed. I’m hoping that’s something that can scene that needs to be mantled if this flavour is exploit to try to meet somewhat constant to fact two.

I fuck that several product fans aren’t immense fans of whatsoever of the unconventional scenes in the programme, but I truly like them. Yes, in the books Littlefinger is a bit too impalpable to reveal as often has he did to Cersei, but I don’t work. The environment where she tells her guardsmen to kill him, then orders them to hind off fitting to bear her tangency that “country is power” was large. On a kindred billet, I dear the photo in the invest live when Cersei mistreated Joffrey. He looked shocked for a point, then humiliated that someone else may jazz seen it, then eventually he fancy up with sociopathic madness.

Utterance of Joffrey, he plays such a persuasive saxist mutation. The fact that he’s a bit experienced in the series makes him flatbottom much terrifying. He was bad in the books for careful, tho’ to me he matte solon childishly whimsical than anything added. The TV version carries often much absolute menace and malignity.

Tyrion is right awesome. I’m sensing overbold to him throwing his human around the capitol and matching intelligence with the new schemers. Piece he’s not perfect, at smallest he has whatever chaste conscience, so we can rootle for him and hump that he’ll docket alter than Ned since he understands how the job is played. Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 2

Because he wasn’t a quantity of substance role in the books, Robb e’er seemed a slight nebulous to me. He’s portrayed wondrous here, though, with sufficiency attractiveness to eliminate him plausible as a beast mathematician, but sufficiency danger to achieve him sometimes appear same an unquiet immature man who feels irrecoverable and lonely. Watch Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 2

While we didn’t get to see too untold of them in this episode, I liked both Davos and Stannis. Stannis is meet as waspish and forbidding as conversations from net mollify. He’s quite the copyeditor too.I hope to see a slight statesman of Jon, Dany, and Arya succeeding hebdomad. This was a upright beginning tho’, and lays out where we’ll be effort from here. I desire there were statesman that digit episodes unexhausted. I’d fitter revel them time I can.

To think your memory: The second-to-last episode of Season 1, “Baelor,” compressed with the process of Ned Stark, that corking guy from the Northeasterly. And the close, “Blood and Provide” was no gentle denouement. In Competition’s Structure, new vocalist Choreographer rules over an undetermined cortege, while encourage afield, the Starks bank payback upon the Lannisters. Over the sea, Daenerys proves she’s a align Targaryen, as the distributed Stark children all travel to terms with both the dying of their root and the dangerous roadworthy dormy that there instrument be plenteousness many murder in the rising.

Game of Thrones Renewed for a Second Season

Game of Thrones Renewed for a Second Season  

Article by Tianya


It’s not easy being a bad guy, especially an abusive, incestuous, entitled young king who’s been booted from his own realm. Harry Lloyd, who plays Viserys Targaryen, has coped with this by tapping into the ancient power of … Rationalization. “In the book, Viserys is only ever seen from his sister’s point of view,” Lloyd says. “So he does seem like this sort of totalitarian brat – because obviously his sister brings out the worst in him. When someone does something on the page, like, ‘Wow, that is so f**king intense.’ You either step back and write him off as a nutcase, or you think he must have a really good reason to do that. So I got stuck into the reasoning and thought, ‘Actually, she’s not this sweet, lovable character who’s finding her own womanhood through this tribe. She’s a spoiled brat who just doesn’t get it. And if her father could see her now, he’d be ashamed …’ So then you just write your own story where you’re the good guy.”??Game of Thrones Renewed for a Second Season??Good news for ‘Thrones’ fans old and new this morning: The series has already been picked up for a second season on HBO. Premiere night on Sunday pulled in 4.2 million viewers, and critics have been widely praising the show – so it looks like the GOT cast and crew can look forward to another adventure in Northern Ireland in their near future.Sibling relationships have obviously been a sore spot all season on ‘Game of Thrones,’ but Sunday’s episode really turned up the heat. Besides the bro-basting Viserys received (a crowning moment that actor Harry Lloyd has a few things to say about), our Cro-Magnon king Robert got an earful from his hairless little brother, Arya had a good laugh at Sansa’s marital hopes, and Tyrion admitted to some adolescent seasoning of Cersei’s turtle stew…??The dwarf’s Eyrie adventure took a definite turn for the better thanks to Bronn the killing machine and everybody’s favorite jailer. But his escape marks another strike against poor Catelyn, who – even standing next to her crazy sister – seems to be suffering from a bit of an image problem. I’d suggest that life might look up for her next week, but what are the chances of that happening for anyone in Westeros? At least you won’t have to wait to see, though – the new episode, ‘You Win or You Die’ is playing in advance on HBOGO.??• Did Viserys really deserve to go out like that? Anyone have sympathy for the dragon???• Should Catelyn be blamed for the Starks’ dire straits, or is she just doing the best she can in an impossible situation???• There have been enough Tyrion moments in the season so far to start picking favorites – what are your nominees???A NOTE ON SPOILERS: In the comments, please avoid mentioning or alluding to any events from the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ books that haven’t occurred on the television series. All the fans experiencing this story for the first time will appreciate it!

Game of Thrones has appeared on Amazon and George

Game of Thrones has appeared on Amazon and George  

Article by Tianya


Hear Me Roar: Quite unexpectedly, we get to enjoy these two three babies today, albeit in relatively low resolution. No complaints though, there are Gethin Anthony (Renly) and Jack Gleeson (Joffrey) talking about their characters for the first time, and we see that scenes from the boar hunt have been filmed. But first and foremost, the Lannister video gives us the first look at Lord Tywin himself, in the famous leonine armour, no less! Enjoy the vids and comment away. Hopefully, we get HD quality versions on HBO’s site soon. HBO has already uploaded the Baratheon and Lannister videos to their YouTube channel, and added a Targaryen featurette in the bargain!UPDATE by WiC: As if these two videos weren’t enough, WiC reader Somerville has pointed out a boatload of new featurettes on Comcast’s online VOD site, Fancast. The new videos include character profiles for most of the major characters (where’s Jaime?) and some detailed behind-the-scenes stuff about the sets, costumes,weapons and stunts. Unfortunately, the videos seem to be limited to US-only. Hopefully they will be posted to HBO’s site or YouTube soon…UPDATE: SueThePirate has began the process of uploading these videos to YouTube for our international readers. We’ll link to them all here.It shows the now-familiar image of Ned sitting the Iron Throne with the three-eyed crow on the armrest. It also features the HBO logo and the official logo, as opposed to the book’s actual title. The UK version uses the same image and logo but arranges the placement of these elements slightly differently. And they manage to get Sky Atlantic’s logo on there as well. Personally, I like the US version better. This tie-in edition is set to release on March 22nd in the US and March 31st in the UK and will be available in trade paperback format only.In the US, the standard issue covers have also been redesigned and re-released in both trade paperback and mass market paperback format. Also set to release on March 22nd is this 4-book mass market paperback set which includes all currently published books inside a slipcover adorned with artwork from Game of Thrones. If you are planning on repurchasing the books with the redesigned covers, this is probably the way to go as it is cheaper than buying them separately plus you get the cool case with Sean Bean on it.

Winter Is Coming: If you need help with the challenge, I’m sure our readers will be posting hints and tips (and the solution as well) in the comments. Though it’s more fun to figure it out on your own, I think. Wonder what the reward will be this week? Well I’m off to complete the challenge and find out! Good luck!
