This one takes the cake.
Who’d have thought that Syrio Forel himself would show up in one of Joe Campo’s videos as part of his quest to land a part in Game of Thrones? Not only is it funny, it may give us just a little taste of how Syrio may sound in HBO’s TV series!
Good luck to Joe, and many thanks to Miltos for being such a good sport!
Now, can we get the Mountain into this?
It took awhile, but we managed to get our annotations from the excellent, minute-long third teaser all sorted out. You can find them starting from this page of our Previews gallery. Hope you enjoy them, and remember, next Sunday will bring us the 10 minute “Inside Game of Thrones” feature!
The brand new teaser is out, and Making Game of Thrones has kindly placed it up on the web for all of us to enjoy!
What’d you think of it?
You can find our annotated stills starting here.
For those wondering, the music from the trailer was provided by Sencit Music, who’ve provided scoring for teasers including Inception.
We have completed annotating the latest two Artisans videos (featuring set decorator Richard Roberts and weapons master Tommy Dunne), starting from the second row of our Behind the Scenes gallery. Some terrific details here, from shots of the Red Keep’s interior to a myriad of amazing weapons including Ice and Needle.
Remember, this evening HBO will be airing a brand new teaser for the show, and we’ve already annotated the preview for next Sunday’s “Inside Game of Thrones” as well as the brand new, high-res gallery of production stills featuring many favorite characters.
Making Game of Thrones has kindly shared the promo for the upcoming “Inside Game of Thrones” promotional documentary due next Sunday, December 5th. Here’s the embed. Our annotated screencap gallery can be found in the Previews section of the gallery, starting here:
EW’s exclusive images are now available at Making Game of Thrones. We’ve also placed them in our own gallery, with commentary concerning the appearances of costumes and locales that may be of interest.
More gallery images to be added soon, we hope.
HBO has clarified that the promo showing up tonight before the 8PM film is, in fact, a promo spot for the Inside Game of Thrones 15-minute program which we’ve already reported on. It may well contain some new, quick shots that give a sense of what the promo piece will show on December 5th before the Boardwalk Empire finale, but it’s not the promised 3rd teaser.
Instead, the new 3rd teaser will start airing on Sunday, not Saturday. Again, we fully expect it will air just before or just after Boardwalk Empire, but we’ll try to get more specific information.
HBO has not only confirmed last night’s report of a 15-minute long “Inside Game of Thrones” program on Sunday, December 5th, but they’ve also revealed that there’s going to be a brand new teaser scheduled to air this
We don’t have specific times as of yet, but we’d expect the teasers to air in the vicinity of major original programming (after or before this weekend’s Boardwalk Empire seems a likely bet), and in any case we’re told that they will be placed on the Making Game of Thrones site in short order. Expect Westeros.org to provide its usual embedded links and thorough analysis when we get a hold of them out here!
Additional: HBO indicated to us that it will run just before the 8PM film, so we’re thinking tuning in at 7:45 would be a good idea to make sure you don’t miss it on your TV screen.
Thanks to a tweet, it seems we’ve discovered that HBO is getting ready to roll out the big promotional guns for Game of Thrones starting December 5th, which happens to be the finale of their big costume drama, Boardwalk Empire. At first there was some confusion… but a quick check with ogebaba led me to HBO’s on-line schedule. Put in Game of Thrones and what you get is two showings on Sunday, at 8:45 and 11:45, of what’s said to be a 15 minute program. You can see the initial listing here. The program description is, “A special sneak preview of the highly anticipated HBO series Game of Thrones”.
After that, the program will be put into regular rotation at least through January 6th, though it’s listed as being 10 minutes there. At a guess, the 15 minute version could contain some exclusive, one-time extras like a scene… or it could be material connected to Boardwalk or other programming. Regardless, at least 10 minutes of Game of Thrones-centric material seems a shoe-in.
The question is then ... what’s the material? At a guess, we’re likely to see some of the Artisans material, at least, which has not been aired on HBO as far as we know. But it seems quite likely that there’ll be at least something new as well.
Thanks to long-time forum member ogbebaba for tipping us off!
Natalia Tena, cast in the role of the wildling spearwife Osha after wowing the producers with her audition, is off to Belfast to film more scenes for HBO’s Game of Thrones. This news comes via the official Twitter account for Molotov Jukebox, the band which Tena is lead vocalist for. You can watch their latest video for their song “Laid to Rest”, with a saucy performance from Tena, right here:
Tena has also resumed her supporting role of Tonks in the latest installment of the Harry Potter saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.
HBO’s Making Game of Thrones site has a new photo up from the set:
Click through to see our discussion of just what we’re seeing, but lets just say it’s an important dagger, and an equally important book on which it lies…
They also ask fans to share their views as to what other props they’d like to see. Here’s Westeros.org’s list:
Entertainment Weekly‘s print edition has hit the stands today (with this fetching series of covers that should be hard to miss), and inside it contains a bit more information (rather spoilerish, but so it goes) and several new photos from their exclusive. Below, we’ll discuss the new pictures, using the captions EW provides with each image.
Mark Addy, playing King Robert Baratheon (featured in one of EW’s new photos), is profiled in the York Press for his part in a Kidstory fund-raising event. However, there’s quite a lot of Game of Thrones commentary to start with, with Addy noting that he had just completed his last day of filming and is soon looking for a new gig (at the Moot, I asked him when he was done filming, but with all the noise it seems he thought I was asking when filming in general would wrap.) He reiterates that the series will film into December (we’ve been told by production members and GRRM that December 18-19th is the planned wrap date), and that he’s been told it will start airing in April.
He provides some insight into his role as Robert. Here’s some choice quotes:
Description sparse on this, as it appears to be region blocked so only those in the U.S. (and possibly Canada) can get a look at it. In any case, here’s an amusing interview with actress Amanda Peet, who happens to be executive producer David Benioff’s wife, trying to explain what her husband’s latest project, HBO’s Game of Thrones, is about. Because it’s off-the-cuff and because Fallon is a joker, well, there’s a few amusing stumbles.
Starts at the 25 minute mark:
Following up the amazing gallery of stills from the production, Entertainment Weekly now has a new report by Jennifer Armstrong with some details. There’s a reference to a “pivotal scene” being moved from Catelyn’s bedchamber to a meeting place, which we suppose means they’ve moved her receiving a certain message to the scene corresponding to her first chapter. If true, this is a rather interesting change, immediately introducing the main mystery of the first several novels.
Also, Jason Momoa is apparently naked more often than he talks (hah) and there’s references made to unicorns (which do exist in the setting, but probably aren’t anything like you imagine!)
Here’s the opening paragraph, clearly describing the scene in the godswood. I actually saw the heart tree’s face in the prop room at Belfast, but it was in fact from the pilot and they had redone it for the reshoots:
