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?
