You’ve seen it in the trailer, you’ve read set reports for the better part of a year, but Game of Thrones is finally ready to confirm a mammoth battle toward the end of Season 6. Well, not literal mammoths (but maybe!). The series finally had a chance to shoot a “proper battle” with clashing armies and limited CG, orchestrated by the visionary director that brought us “Hardhome.”
Considering Netflix has pushed it to the point of debuting near of a new season or series every week, the premium providers of old seem almost deprived of new content. HBO won’t take that lying down, planning to up its original series haul by at least 50% of its current stable, but will it affect subscription fees?
No doubt Game of Thrones has shaped the manner in which political rivalries play out their bitter ends in the media, that the harshest of podium insults scarcely raise an eyebrow anymore. Well, with Game of Thrones and Donald Trump both on everyone’s minds, it’s no surprise the Orange King fits right in with the world of Westeros.
They warned us we’d be teased, and Game of Thrones Season 6 wasn’t kidding around. The first footage teaser for the new 2016 season has arrived with HBO’s Vinyl, bringing back some majorly familiar faces, but has the big Jon Snow question finally been answered at last?
Early Thursday, HBO’s attempt to alleviate our Game of Thrones Season 6 suffering with 20 new photos ended up a bit garbled by the pressure on their servers, and now we may know why. Even more photos have emerged from the landmark sixth season, some of which could well reveal some major plot points for George R.R. Martin’s books.
