Game of Thrones releases new photos from Season 8 Episode 1

Game of Thrones is returning this April with less than 11 days for its premiere. We’ve been so far treated with the official trailer, a bunch of new promos and footages along with a spooky official teaser that portrays all major characters dead. But, though HBO tries to propel us in that direction yet we can’t ship all the major characters dying. Then, to lighten up our mood a bit HBO recently released a bunch of new promo photos via the express. Let’s have a look and analyse what each one means.

There are a lot of expectations from the first episode of the eight season – the reveal of Jon Snow’s parentage, a number of reunions, and much more. The new promotional photos from the episode seem to be pointing at the same. Starting off from King’s Landing, we can see Cersei Lannister and her hand Qyburn in the Throne room. They are perhaps addressing Euron Greyjoy and Harry Strickland from Golden Company.

Next, are two images of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen perhaps just before making their way to Winterfell. Jon seems to be showing his home to his love interest/aunt-in-disguise from a distance.

Next, are a few glimpses from Daenerys and crew’s arrival to Winterfell. Starting off with a still of Daenerys who seems to be standing next to Jon – you can tell from his furry cloak. You can also see Tyrion Lannister and Missandei in the background.

Up next are the Starks. Sansa Stark seems to be all ready to give Daenerys and Jon a warm welcome with Bran Stark and Brienne of Tarth by her side.

Next still among the promo photos is of Jorah Mormont and Ser Davos Seaworth – the trustees of Dany and Jon standing together, followed by a still of Jorah and Dany.

Up next are Jon and Daenerys together. I’m not sure if these two are standing together during the opening scene or in a later shot standing over the Winterfell Battlements.

Next shot is of a spider seated in a cart. I mean, literally Lord Varys in a cart on his way to Winterfell.

Next, are a number of photos of Winterfell Great Hall where you can find a bunch of characters like Lyanna Mormont, Tyrion, Ser Davos, Yohn Royce, Brienne of Tarth, and Dany.

Next, are two stills of Jorah and Daenerys in what appears to be a room full of scrolls and books. Perhaps this is Sansa’s room or Samwell Tarly or Bran’s room. But, I can’t still figure out the purpose of them being there perhaps to have a discussion.

The final shot in the promo photos that interests me a lot is of Sansa Stark – the Lady of Winterfell in a brand new armour, perhaps from Episode 2. This is the armour that she was talking about in a couple of previous interviews.  Her armour actually seems to have derived or taken reference from Arya Stark – lady you really need to stop copying traits!

So, what were your thoughts on these brand new promotional photos? How excited are you for the final season of Game of Thrones?

Game Of Thrones Season 8 airs on 14th April, 9 PM in USA and on Hotstar at the same time, which translates to a Monday, 15th April, 6:30 am IST stream for the Indian fans.

“lady you really need to stop copying traits!” – A few notes: Jon Snow styles himself EXACTLY as Ned Stark styled himself, yet receives no criticism for it. Dany’s manner of dress changes dramatically from her time in Pentos (where she wears a flimsy, sheer dress, much like a bedslave might wear) to the Dothraki sea (when she wears Dothraki leathers) to Slaver’s Bay (when she wears the blue and white flowing fabrics of merchants and rulers in Essos) to Dragonstone (where she adopts the black and red of her house) to Winterfell (white and grey fur everywhere!)–she adapts her… Read more »

See Emilia Clarke in the trailer for her first film post Game of Thrones, Last Christmas

Game of Thrones might have made big stars of most of the actors that were on the show, but for nearly a decade, these stars were also somewhat tied down to the show, and couldn’t take on too many other projects. A prime example is Emilia Clarke, who hasn’t appeared in many films or TV series during her time on Game of Thrones. However, now we have the trailer for the first film Emilia is going to be starring in since she wrapped up the show – Last Christmas. Read on!

Last Christmas looks like your typical holiday cheer filled rom-com that we’re all in the mood for around that time. It stars Emilia Clarke in what seems like a role that mirrors her natural bubbly personality, and opposite her is Henry Golding from Crazy Rich Asians fame. Check out the trailer:

Now, this might look like regular Emilia to us, but for those fans of her that have only seen her as Daenerys and not as Emilia herself, it is a far throw from the fire queen. The film also stars Emma Thompson, who is known for her numerous roles, with Professor Terawlney from Harry Potter being one of them, and Michelle Yeoh, who was also in Crazy Rich Asians, among her other acting credits. Paul Feig is at the helm. If you find the name familiar, it’s probably because of a Wham! song by the same name. Heck, the poster also says “Featuring the music of George Michael”, and the trailer is a testament to that. What a treat!

Media outlets are reporting a release date of November 7, 2019, right in time for the holidays. The movie seems like a great pick for your holiday run. What could be better than the mother of dragons dressed channelling a cute little elf?
