Game of Thrones’ Kristofer Hivju promotes Audi’s e-car movement

Human activities have always posed a threat to the environment. We often tend to hurt the natural balance for our own benefits, whether it’s knowingly or otherwise. This delicate balance can be restored little by little through our collective efforts, no matter how small they are. It can be even as small as changing our vehicle. The fuel emissions caused by using petrol and diesel automobiles are not only dangerous for the environment, but they also cause serious health problems. Game of Thrones celebrities have always been conscious of environmental issues. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was last seen discussing climate-change with Ursula von der Leyen. Now, Kristofer Hivju has joined the cause by promoting Audi’s electric car, the E-Tron series.

Hivju is seen driving an E-Tron variant while singing praises for his country, Norway. Norway is a particular point of pride for Audi. According to Norway’s registration data, the E-Tron (SUV and Sportback) was the best-selling model in 2020, at 9,227 units—beating the Tesla Model 3. That’s more E-Trons than Audi sold in the U.S. in 2020 (7,202, according to Automotive News).

Looking at the current scenario, we can be assured that petrol and diesel vehicles will soon become a thing of the past. Soaring prices and low availability will force people into looking for renewable energy sources. These electric cars are going to be the wheels of tomorrow.

Game of Thrones exhibit ‘Unknown Worlds’ held at Frankenstein Castle in Germany

Game of Thrones exhibit held at Frankenstein Castle in Germany

Art makes you see the world in a different view. However, one artist has dedicated his talent to show the world the hidden landscapes of popular novels. A few years ago, artist Sven Sauer curated Unseen Westeros, an exhibit where accomplished artists took a close look at the fictional world created by George R.R. Martin and painted their own versions of places we didn’t get to see in on HBO’s Game of Thrones, or even in Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books. Some of them include the Shadow Lands, the far country of Yi Ti and dragons over the Shivering Sea. This year the Unseen Worlds exhibit was held at Frankenstein Castle in Germany, which featured 60 new images created by 40 international artists who worked on Game of Thrones, Avatar, Star Trek, X-Men, The Avengers and The Chronicles of Narnia.

Los Siete Reinos has shared some images from the event, and they look spectacular.

House of The Dragon resumes production after COVID shutdown

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is once again back on track, as promised by HBO after the recent positive coronavirus case. The production was hit with a jolt on Monday when a crew and a cast member tested positive for the contagious virus. According to Deadline, the UK shoot was paused for two days after a positive case in zone A was reported, which includes cast and crew. Now Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that filming on HBO’s upcoming fantasy series House of the Dragon resumed on Wednesday as expected after a brief production shutdown.

The production member and the actor have been isolated and close contacts are required to quarantine. Production began according to the schedule on Wednesday. It is not known yet as to who were the ones who were tested positive for the virus.

The news dealt a minor blow to the expectations of the fans who were expecting the show to arrive early in 2022. The progress on the Game of Thrones prequel was going on smoothly until now, and was progressing really quick. Leaked pictures from all over the internet hinted HBO is taking great strides in this direction, and they are leaving no stones unturned to make this show a great hit. Hopefully, they’ll be able to make the dragons fly again and get the production up to speed in no time.

The Last of Us TV series might surpass the budget of Game of Thrones

The Last of Us TV series might surpass the budget of Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones was the biggest show of the 21st century. It set new records for viewership, awards won and the budget required to make the show. Being such a big hit ensured that the fans will get to return to Westeros, and that’s why we are getting the prequel series House of The Dragon. However, it is going to face tough competition from a show from HBO itself. The TV adaptation of the video game The Last of Us has created quite a buzz recently. This time, it is in the news for the cost of its production, and it might exceed the budget that was used to make Game of Thrones.

The Last of Us TV series might surpass the budget of Game of Thrones

Based on the super-popular video game of the same name, the show follows a man named Joel (Pedro Pascal) who’s forced to bring a young girl named Ellie (Bella Ramsey) across a zombie-infested United States because she might be the key to a cure. Filming is reportedly now taking place in Fort MacLeod, Alberta, Canada, and there, the head of one of the labour unions working on the project offered up some fascinating information to the local CTV News, via Forbes.

This project well exceeds the eight-figure per episode mark,” said Damian Petti, president of IATSE 212. “So there is a multiplier effect on our economy in terms of its impact. There are hundreds of related businesses benefitting from the plethora of work.” The expenditure, according to Petti, began with six months of pre-production leading into a 12-month shoot. The first season is expected to be 10 episodes.
