Game of Thrones releases new photos from Season 8 Episode 1

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 »

HBO releases House of the Dragon teaser trailer

HBO releases House of the Dragon teaser trailer

We finally have the first footage from the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon. The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen.

“Gods. Kings. Fire and Blood. Dreams didn’t make us kings … Dragons did.” *GOOSEBUMPS*

 

One of the best parts of the trailer was the scene that featured the Great Hall in the Red Keep. In the Game of Thrones prequel, we will get to see a new Iron Throne, one that is kind of close to what George R.R. Martin imagined it to look like when he wrote the books. Here’s the most accurate depiction of the Iron Throne according to George R.R. Martin. Also, looking at the scene, it does feel that the Iron Throne is made of the thousand blades of Aegon’s fallen enemies.

We get to see the Iron Throne in another scene from the teaser trailer but we had to zoom in to get a proper look at the Iron Throne.

In Game of Thrones TV series, the Iron Throne didn’t actually have 1000 swords and during the famous “Chaos is a ladder” scene Littlefinger tells Lord Varys that there aren’t even 200 swords in the Iron Throne.

The day before yesterday we had reported that we could expect the House of the Dragon teaser trailer to arrive in 2 weeks and that the full trailer will be released 1 week before Christmas.

Here’s the new description for House of the Dragon that was updated a few days ago:

“Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series, which is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen.”

Charles Dance kidnaps Dream in Netflix’s Sandman Teaser Trailer

Charles Dance kidnaps Dream in Netflix’s Sandman Teaser Trailer

There were several memorable villainous characters in Game of Thrones, but few were as influential and admirable as Charles Dance’s Tywin Lannister. His mere presence on the screen dictated seriousness, and the audience knew he meant business. Dance will be once again seen in a villainous role, in Netflix’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s DC comic Sandman. And he looks quite menacing in the trailer itself, have a look:

In the teaser trailer released recently by Netflix, Dance cunningly lures and kidnaps Morpheus, the cosmic being who is an embodiment of all the dreams in the universe. Dance plays Roderick Burgess who is a charlatan, blackmailer and magician, and the show’s protagonist Dream is portrayed by Tom Sturridge.

Dance’s Game of Thrones co-star is also playing an important role in the series. Gwendoline Christie will play a female version of Lucifer, Queen of Hell.

Netflix’s official synopsis for The Sandman reads: “A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven, ‘The Sandman’ follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.”
