George R.R. Martin Says Game of Thrones Ending Was Freeing as a Writer

George R.R. Martin Says Game of Thrones Ending Was Freeing as a Writer

Writing a fantasy epic is hard. Writing a fantasy epic while also competing with a television show that adapts said epic, and will finish before you? Apparently that’s way harder.

At least, that’s the impression I get from an interview George RR Martin recently gave to the Guardian. In it, he talks about the pressure of creating while an adaptation of his work is ongoing.

So Is Henry Golding a Ghost in Emilia Clarke's First Post-Game of Thrones Movie, or What?
Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.  

Reader, I love Christmas—but I love it very specifically from December 1 until Twelfth Night on January 5. Outside of that period, any attempt to elicit holiday cheer out of me provokes distinctly unseasonal venom. So why am I writing about a Christmas themed rom-com starring Daenerys Targaryen...

A New Study Reminds Us How Ridiculous Spoiler Culture Has Become

A New Study Reminds Us How Ridiculous Spoiler Culture Has Become

Not a day goes by without someone, somewhere on the internet, feeling the need to express how they’ve been personally harmed by a news site focused on genre entertainment that committed the unforgivable sin of running headlines that very vaguely allude to the interesting parts of films and shows. “I have been slain by spoilers,” these people cry. “Why have you slain me?”

To be fair, there are...

Read Game of Thrones’ Finale Script for a Glimpse at Some Bullshit

Read Game of Thrones’ Finale Script for a Glimpse at Some Bullshit

There were a lot of interesting ideas in Game of Thrones’ final episode, albeit ones dramatically rushed into, with disregard for actually setting them up over the course of a season (or several seasons) of television. Now, you can see some of the processes behind getting to where we got at the end of all things Game of Thrones yourself, via the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. And...

Turns Out Daenerys and Drogon Were Not the Most Destructive Forces in Game of Thrones' Battle of Kings Landing

Turns Out Daenerys and Drogon Were Not the Most Destructive Forces in Game of Thrones' Battle of Kings Landing

Despite what you think, Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon Drogon were not what ultimately laid waste to the city of King’s Landing in Game of Thrones’ final season. No, that distinction goes to the show’s visual effects crew.

Scanline VFX posted a new video this week showcasing some of the work it did on the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, and it’s pretty significant and...

HBO desestima la petición de los fans de volver a rodar la octava temporada de Juego de Tronos

El final de Juego de Tronos no dejó a nadie indiferente. De hecho a algunos les ha enfadado tanto que el pasado mes de mayo apareció una petición en Change.org solicitando a HBO que volviera a rodar la serie. Pues bien, no va a ocurrir. ¿Acaso esperábais otra cosa?

Here's What Happened at (Maybe) the Final Game of Thrones Comic-Con Panel Ever

Here's What Happened at (Maybe) the Final Game of Thrones Comic-Con Panel Ever

After the polarizing, controversial final season of Game of Thrones, fans had been wondering how the creators and stars would be greeted when they took the stage at San Diego Comic-Con 2019. Would it be the heroes welcome, like Jon Snow returning to Winterfell? Or an uncomfortable scenario, like Daenerys Targaryen after burning King’s Landing to the ground?

To the surprise of, probably, no...

All the Best Sci-Fi TV and Movies Coming to Comic-Con 2019

Yes, it’s called Comic-Con, but these days, the biggest news out of the annual convention usually isn’t about comics. It’s about comic book-inspired (or at least influenced) film and television. Things change though. Ten years ago, movies dominated SDCC. Five years ago, television started taking over. Now, it’s a mix, leaning more into TV with a strong focus on streaming content. Since...
