Game of Thrones' first official photo from season 8 appears on EW's cover

Whenever there is a piece of information on the final season of Game of Thrones, the world looks on eagerly. Everything around the last season has been protected with fierce intensity. Now after more than a year since season 7 concluded on screen, we have the first official picture from the lands of season 8.

The cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly features the first official photo from the set of Game of Thrones season 8. It shows Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) clad in winter-wear, standing in a protective and loving embrace in the snow. The EW’s issue carries the first look at the end game that leads to a conclusion of A Song of Ice and Fire.

The executive producer on the show, Bryan Cogman provided exclusive insights on the final season. “It’s about all of these disparate characters coming together to face a common enemy, dealing with their own past, and defining the person they want to be in the face of certain death,” Cogman says.

It was a long shoot, one that has lasted almost 10 months. And the production will still go on before the show returns somewhere in the first half of 2019. The cast and crew, in this period, has been on a grind to make everything as climactic and on-point as possible.

Kit Harington elaborated, “It’s relentless; scenes that would have been a one-day shoot five years ago are now a five-day shoot.” He furthered, “They want to get it right, they want to shoot everything every single way so they have options.”

Emilia Clarke echoed Kit’s thoughts, “[Camera] checks take longer, costumes are a bit better, hair and makeup a bit sharper- every choice, every conversation, every attitude, has this air of ‘this is it.’ Everything feels more intense.”

As the winds around the latest Game of Thrones spinoff, The Long Night gather momentum, the great battle to avoid it in present-day Westeros is gathering warmup too. Let’s hope it’s going to be a chilling marathon. What are your thoughts on this first look? Tell us in the comments.

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa opens up about life with family

Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa opens up about life with family

Real-life is often different from reel life. The celebrities we idolize often face regular problems like normal people. We might want a life like theirs, but ignore the struggles they had to face. For example, Game of Thrones macho man Jason Momoa. Though he appears fearsome as Khal Drogo and majestic as Aquaman on-screen, he’s completely different in real life. The 41-year-old actor recently opened up about his life off-screen in an interview with Men’s Health magazine.

The Game of Thrones star revealed, “I may look big and tough, but I’m not. I’m nothing like Khal Drogo. I’m not even the king of my own house! I’m absolutely terrified of my wife.”

Momoa loves his family. He said, “We’ve all gotten so much closer. My wife is very sophisticated and smart and our kids and I are kind of like animals that need to be trained a little better. I’m constantly a work in progress, and I’ve just been trying to get better as a father and a husband.” 

Jason has been through a lot, without letting anyone know about his troubles. He recently revealed in an interview how his family was facing financial troubles after Game of Thrones. It is tough to imagine someone as popular as he went broke. Things got better for him after the Justice League.

Game of Thrones' Sean Bean shines once again as a dad in animation Wolfwalkers

Animated movies are a doorway to relive our childhood. Adults and children enjoy them equally. Some of them have such an engaging story they turn out to be a huge success. Sean Bean starrer Wolfwalkers checks off all the markers of a great animated movie. (Another cool animation Hitpig is on the way!). The movie was released on 13th November in The US and has been received really well by critics worldwide.

Game of Thrones' Sean Bean shines once again as a dad in animation Wolfwalkers

Directed by Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, Wolfwalkers is rooted in Irish folklore and art. It follows the tale of a young girl, Robyn (Honor Kneafsey), and her father, Bill (Sean Bean). They have been called from their homeland (England) to take out a pack of wolves in the town of Kilkenny, Ireland, in the 17th century. Robyn longs for the freedom she once had in England and wants to follow in her father’s footsteps as a hunter.

On the other side of the forest are wolfwalkers. They are a small breed of unique humans with the ability to turn into wolves when they sleep. They have control over wild wolves living in the surrounding forests. The wolfwalkers are forced to lash out as the townsfolk destroy their home, hunting them. Robyn must act as a mediator for her Irish town and the wolfwalkers of the forest.

The film features Celtic art and beautifully designed hand-drawn animation. From being the Dad Wolf in Game of Thrones to hunting wolves in Wolfwalkers, Sean Bean has come a long way. Give it a watch and tell us how you felt about it in the comments below!
