Seinfeld star Jason Alexander defends Game of Throne finale

It has been a long and arduous journey for Game of Thrones fans. The final season resulted in raging debates all over about the theories deemed forgotten. A lot of hate was directed towards the writers of the show, David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. Around 1 million fans signed a petition to remake the season and it invited ire from the cast members of the series.

There have been a lot of celebrities who are coming to the defence of the makers. The latest among them is a star fromof the legendary sitcom Seinfeld.

Jason Alexander who played George Constanza in the series took to Twitter to express his love for the season. He wrote, “Dear #GOT company, I know a little something about finales and disappointed fans. My advice: live in joy that you are part of something that moves people so. You were all magnificent. My family and I loved it all. Thanks.”

Seinfeld finale was also touted as a disaster by many of its fans and hence, probably Jason also went on to defend that as well.

“To be clear, I adored the Seinfeld finale. I just keep getting crap about it from fans. I loved that Jerry/Larry found an organic way to bring back all the amazing guests that enriched our show. It was an amazing week together filming it.”

Discussions ensued on both the Twitter threads about both the series making it clear once again as to how much both of them impacted the viewers.

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.
