HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

Game of Thrones final season might not have gotten the expected response from critics and fans with regards to the rankings, the show still has maintained its viewership figures.

A report by The Wall Street Journal says that the finale of the show garnered a record viewership of 19.3 million viewers, including the live TV viewership, and streaming viewership from HBO Go and HBO Now. The live TV views accounted for 13.6 million of those views.

This not only make the episode the most watched Game of Thrones episode of all time, but also makes it the most viewed HBO episode in history, standing above some pretty great television.

Season 8 has consistently broken the viewership records for the show, starting right from the premiere. The last episode of the show being the most watched is quite fitting, given Game of Thrones had been HBO’s poster child for a long time now.

Game of Thrones fans raise more than $55000 for Kit Harington’s charity, Mencap

Game of Thrones fans might have hated the final season of the show, but they aren’t holding off their love for the stars of the show. Only recently, we had reported that fans of the show from Reddit had helped raise over $30,000 for Emilia Clarke’s charity, a figure that has hit $137,000 by now. Looks like the fans didn’t stop there. They have now raised over $55,000 for Kit Harington’s charity, Mencap. Read on!

The campaign was started by Redditor u/AlpineJ0e, and is hosted on JustGiving.com. It’s dedicated to Mencap, a charity Kit Harington has supported for years, which works for equal rights and opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

At the time of writing this article, the campaign has collected over $55,682 (£43,686) for Mencap, and is still going strong. Mencap themselves responded to the effort on Twitter, and even sent a letter to the campaign creator, along with a signed photo of Kit:

Maisie Williams' X-Men movie "The New Mutants" gets its release date delayed again

Game of Thrones might be over, but the careers of its stars are far from it. The stars have moved on with other big projects already. Notably, the Stark sisters, i.e, Sophie Turner (Sansa) and Maisie Williams (Arya) both landed roles in the X-Men Universe. Sophie’s film, Dark Phoenix, recently released in theatres, but Maisie’s The New Mutants has been delayed, for the third time now. Read on!

Now, some of you might be aware that Disney bought Fox out, bringing the rights to the X-Men films back into the family. This means that the fate of ongoing projects hangs in the balance, and The New Mutants is one of them. The movie, which stars Maisie Williams, was initially set to release on April 13, 2018, which was then pushed to February 22, 2019, and once more to August 2, 2019. A new press release by Disney reveals the film has been pushed one more time, to April 3, 2020.

The New Mutants producer Simon Kinberg told Digital Spy the reason behind the latest rescheduling:

“What’s happening is we’re gonna do reshoots this year on that film and it has a new release date from Disney. That’s really it.

Part of it was figuring out what the reshoots were gonna be, the pick-ups, and the other part of it was getting that cast back together.”

Well, let’s just hope that it’s good when it does get released. Disney is surely bound to pick up feedback from Dark Phoenix, which bombed at the box office, with the worst reception for an X-Men movie, ever.
