We’re aleady running a contest to win tickets to the Stockholm premiere, thanks to the Swedish branch of HBO Nordic... but we’ve also gotten the opportunity to run a contest for the Danish fans out there, for a chance to win VIP tickets to the premiere of season 3 of Game of Thrones in Copenhagen. We’ve 10 VIP tickets to give out, and these tickets cover yourself plus a companion.
Here’s the details on the event:
Date: March 27th at 6 PM.
Location: Odd Fellow Palæet, Bredgade 28, 1260 Copenhagen.
The will be a night in the spirit of Game of Thrones with a true-to-size replica of the Iron Throne and a screening of the first episode of Game of Thrones season 3. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will be present and will entertain the crowds. There will be drinks and food and many hundred GoT fans present.
As to how to enter? Just comment on this post, and we’ll randomly select winners in the next few days!
Yet another preview video, courtesy of HBO. Now there’s something of a surfeit of these, I must say—in particular, this one is mostly footage we’ve already seen. But, hey, for those who’ve missed the earlier ones…
Our screencapping backlog is getting longer and longer. Too much to do, too little time to do it in!
The webcast of the panel featuring cast and crew members from Game of Thrones—including George R.R. Martin—is set to begin at about 7:40 PM Pacific time. You can watch it embedded below:
For those who’ve asked, it certainly looks like this webcast will then join the “Webcasts on Demand” that the Emmys’ site offers. We don’t know if there’ll be a log of hours or days before this happens, however.
UPDATE: We’ve just learned that Rory McCann, who played the Hound, will be present at the premiere and the associated festivities!
Live in Sweden? Interested in being one of the privileged few who’ll watch the first episode of Game of Thrones on March 26th, almost a week earlier than everyone else? Thanks to HBO Nordic, you have a chance! See below for the full details (in Swedish, naturally):
This advertisment from Time Warner Cable is just about the cutest use of a baby weapon of mass destruction I’ve ever seen:
A reminder that tomorrow evening—and by evening, we mean 7:30PM Pacific Time (10:30PM on the east coast, and if I’m calculating right 3:30 AM where we are)—there’ll be a live webcast of “An Evening with Game of Thrones”, a panel discussion with members of the cast and crew (including producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss, and creator George R.R. Martin) hosted by Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Here’s the full list of panelists:
The second official trailer for Game of Thrones is now out. Quite a lot of new stuff here—including Tormund Giantsbane speaking, some quick looks at Daario Naharis, and more:
Must find time to screencap…
And yet another brand new Game of Thrones preview for season 3, showing fleeting glimpses of some new scenes we’ve never glimpsed before, including some of Stannis and Melisandre, Jaime and Brienne, Arya and Gendry, and more:
Nice—HBO has released a new tease for season 3…. which is all about war, naturally. It gives us our very first good look at Noah Taylor as Locke (a new character introduced to take over some of the function of Vargo Hoat). Is it just me, or is anyone else wondering if he has six fingers on one hand?
EW, with its bevy of exclusive interviews now being posted, has gone the extra mile: it latest issue is a Game of Thrones extravaganza, starting right with its cover featuring Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke in costume as Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
EW has more information about what to expect… including a nice, spoilerish synopsis of some season highlights:
So, eager to hear a little bit about what the first episode will reveal to those watching? HBO teases the season premiere episode “Valar Dohaeris”, and runs through a lengthy list of notable returning and new cast members, in a press release they’ve sent to the media. As there’s spoilers herein, to some degree, we’re just going to put everything under the cut… so click on through!
Over at EW, James Hibberd has posted the first of fifteen exclusive interviews ahead of the March 31st premiere of Game of Thrones. The first interview features Gwendoline Christie—Brienne of Tarth on the show—discussing initial reactions to her casting and her character’s journey, with just a wee bit of detail regarding scenes she’s filmed for this season.
Check it out, and keep an eye on the #EWThrones hashtag on Twitter to learn when the rest of the interviews are published, as they will be once each weekday until the premiere.
Eager to make sure fans who’ve been waiting for the third season are fully caught up to speed, HBO has prepared a recap program that covers key story and thematic points of the last season, along with commentary from actors and producers along the way. Check it out below:
The annual “Power Issue” of Sports Illustrated is on its way, and this time around it seems the editors have chosen a Game of Thrones theme. Not only does NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sit on the Iron Throne on the cover, as he’s ranked the #1 most powerful person in sport, but artist John Hendrix provides this very cool depiction of the modern day sports empires re-envisioned A Song of Ice and Fire style. “The Land of Always Hockey” is particularly choice.
It also sounds like Richard Deitsch of SI will soon be posting a podcast with George R.R. Martin:
Told my podcast and Q&A with @gameofthrones king George R. R. Martin will post today. You’ll enjoy his thoughts on Bill Belichick.— Richard Deitsch (@richarddeitsch) March 6, 2013

James Hibberd at EW has another scoop regarding season 3 of Game of Thrones. Just as with last year’s reveal that The National performed “The Rains of Castamere” for the show, indie rock band The Hold Steady are performing a rendition of—get this—“The Bear and the Maiden Fair”, a very popular bit of song in Westeros.
Hibberd quotes the producers:
So, that will be rather interesting to hear. I’m guessing it’ll be included on the official soundtrack for season 3, as well… and may well be released as a single before hand.
The Westeros network consists of several different sites, including a forum and a wiki, for all your A Song of Ice and Fire needs.
