On this past week’s episode of Game of Thrones, we finally learned what happened to Hot Pie, the reformed bully who found his true calling as a baker and whom we last saw in season four. As fate would have it, Ben Hawkey, the actor who plays Hot Pie, has been busy in the kitchen as well.
The seventh season of Game of Thrones is truly underway. However, unlike the premiere, the second episode failed to feature the White Walkers, the ominous army of the undead marching towards the living. Since that opening episode, eagle eyed viewer have spotted something very interesting in the opening credits sequence; a minor change that could reveal a key plot point to come.
HBO added another winkle to the Hound scene when it uploaded a recap of the episode to its official site. In their write-up, the Hound’s speech had an additional line. Could this line indicate how exactly the dead are “marching past” Eastwatch?
A new Blade Runner 2049 trailer landed this morning and if you thought Jared Leto was up to no good in the last trailer, he really ups his creepiness in this one. But we also noticed new characters, new locations, and more than a few lines that are subtly different from when we heard them in the first trailer.
The episode drew 16.1 million total viewers, including 10.1 million who watched on the linear channel and the rest coming from DVR and streaming. That represents an incredible 50% increase from last year’s premiere, when the show premiered in the spring when TV viewership is typically higher than the summer.
Ahead of Game of Thrones‘ Season 7 premiere, Jimmy Kimmel unveiled Harington’s never-before-seen “audition tape” on Monday’s episode of Live. And judging by its contents, Harington’s eventual casting on the HBO drama was nothing short of a miracle. In the video , Harington tries his hand at a number of Thrones roles, including Cersei Lannister, Arya Stark, Hodor, a White Walker and Ygritte.
Fans have been talking about an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie for years. Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor has repeatedly said he’d like to return to the role. Now, if rumors are to be believed, Disney could soon announce it as the next Star Wars Story film, perhaps as early as this weekend, during the D23 Expo.
Andy Serkis has now read Donald Trump tweets in the voice of his iconic Lord of the Rings character Gollum – and it’s one of the most (or only?) uplifting POTUS-related things we’ve ever seen. Serkis appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to chat about his latest film, War for the Planet of the Apes.
Final Fantasy has become the company’s longest-running and most revered creation, a series so beloved that even its music has transcended the game as a standalone force of nostalgia. It’s been six years since the Distant Worlds philharmonic orchestra (and chorus) last came to Australia, and the Sydney show at the International Convention Centre marks its first stop on a worldwide tour.
