HBO releases a new Game of Thrones Season 8 promo and the internet is totally freaking out!

More than three weeks ago, the first trailer for the new season of Game of Thrones was released and we haven’t got any official word on when we can expect a new trailer. While only days remain until the eighth season, a new promo has been aired with some never ever seen footage, teasing the first three episodes.

The 30-second-long promo starts off with Tyrion Lannister addressing a bunch of people at Winterfell, saying, “We must fight together now…or die…”. looking closely, you can even spot Daenerys and Sansa sitting on the head table. This is then followed by the kid we saw in the official trailer watching Jon and Daenerys arrive at Winterfell with the Unsullied and Dothraki armies, crossing Winter Town. Then we see three Greyjoy ships sailing – nothing new about it yet it being shown in another promo has to mean something important. My bets are on these being Theon/Yara Greyjoy’s fleet.

Moving forward, we see what seems to be Jon and Daenerys meeting in a dark room with Dany facing the fire with her back turned to Jon followed by him leaving the room immediately. No thoughts on what may be going on here or the tensions between the two yet the way Dany has braided her hair in this shot gives me a feeling that she’s about to leave for another important battle.

We then see a shot of Drogon and Rhaegal flying over Winterfell hovering over Sansa Stark – the old shot we saw in the trailer. This is followed by a bunch of new footages Beric Dondarrion racing towards the Hound with a flaming sword during the Battle of Winterfell. We also see the Unsullied preparing for battle with a voice over of Jon Snow ‘Our enemy doesn’t tire…doesn’t stop…”. 

Then we see Cersei Lannister turning around in a dramatic fashion which is followed by Ser Davos Seaworth, Tyrion, and Varys looking up in the sky awestruck. If this is a dragon – there’s nothing new about that at least to Tyrion and Varys, their jaw-dropping reaction gives me vibes that probably they spot Jon flying on Rhaegal over Winterfell (a wishful thought!)

The promo ends with Arya’s hardcore fighting at Winterfell, a wight/Walker arriving near Winterfell on the undead horse we saw in the previous trailer, and the closing image of Drogon spitting fire on someone/something along with Jon’s dialogue ‘They’re coming…”.

No official word on this short promo of the new season of Game of Thrones yet a fan managed to get a full shot of the promo that you can watch here:

With less than two weeks remaining in the new season of Game of Thrones, the cravings are now more than ever yet another trailer from HBO would really be the icing on the cake. What were your thoughts on this short promo from the new season? Did we miss out anything? Tell us in the comments below.

Game of Thrones finale breaks all viewership ratings records for Sky

Game of Thrones was a ‘record’ hit, there’s no doubt. We had previously reported about the American ratings for the Game of Thrones finale, but a new report about the UK ratings shows that the episode actually shattered all records for Sky, the British network that aired the show. Read on!

The finale apparently got over 5.8 million viewers on Sky Atlantic in the UK, which is a 12% jump from Season 7 finale, reports Variety. This figure broke all records for Sky, as Game of Thrones brought in an average of 6 million viewers, making it the most popular show to air on Sky.

Peak viewership came with “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”, arguably the best episode of the season, which hit 6.31 million viewers. The number goes up to 7.1 million if you count the views that came from streaming, within seven days of airing.

The breakdown for the viewership was also revealed by Sky, amounting to 51% share for men, and 49% for women. Zai Bennett, Sky’s director of programs commented:

“Showcasing British talent both on and off-screen, the series has kept viewers gripped with the myriad twists and turns of the battle for the Seven Kingdoms. We want to say a massive thank you to all the fans who have supported the show throughout this incredible journey.”

Game of Thrones will return to San Diego Comic Con this year, one last time

Any popular fandom has one event to look forward to the most, every year, and that is the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC). Game of Thrones has been a regular attendee, with panels with the showrunners and everything. Now that the show is over, nobody was expecting Game of Thrones to be present at SDCC 2019. However, reports are now saying that the show will return to San Diego Comic Con for one last time this year. Read on!

HBO is always a big player at SDCC, and this year will mark the last time it takes its star child, Game of Thrones, to Hall H for one last appearance, according to Deadline. Apparently, the details are yet to be nailed down as to who will actually make an appearance.

HBO skipped the 2018 SDCC, so this should help make up for that missing appearance. In any case, George R. R. Martin is expected to appear. It is very likely that many of the Season 8 cast members will be present for the panel.

Season 8 has mostly been hated by the fandom, however, and this will be the first time the cast and showrunners will be facing the fans together since the end of the show, so it’s needless to say that they might get a couple of bad questions.

The ‘Communists of Russia Party’ wants HBO to remake Game of Thrones Season 8

The 'Communists of Russia Party' wants HBO to remake Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones Season 8 has left many fans world over disappointed, but none more so than a political party from Russia, it seems. The Moscow Times recently reported that a party called the Communists of Russia has penned an open letter to HBO demanding that the final season of Game of Thrones be remade, with different directors and screenwriters no less!

Sergei Matasov, first secretary of the party’s regional committee in the Russia’s Republic of Altai posted the letter on Facebook. He wrote:

“There are many sincere fans of this wonderful series in our party because it demonstrates the consequences that monarchist regimes can bring.”

The fans in his party were left hugely dissatisfied with the “ill-conceived storyline,” “poor acting” and a “lack of logical conclusions” in the final six episodes.

This sentiment does correlate with the global Game of Thrones fan community, some of whom even started a petition to HBO demanding the same thing – a remake of Game of Thrones Season 8. But Matasov has even graver accusations to throw at HBO. He accused the makers of:

“Disappointing millions of fans and presumably misappropriating the funds allocated to the show, which came from the taxes of ordinary American workers and downtrodden negroes.”

For these offences he demanded “an immediate apology from the creators of the finale of ‘Game of Thrones’ and a compulsory reshoot of the final season with new directors and screenwriters”, and also suggested that this time around the U.S. Communist Party should be involved in the making.

HBO doesn’t seem likely to budge any more than they did during the fan petition, though. Tough luck, dear comrades!
