Game of Thrones director explains why there shouldn’t be a movie based on the show

Game of Thrones hired some of the finest talents on the planet who helped make the show great. The music composer for the series, Ramin Djawadi, produced some of the finest tunes for the show. He will be getting back to the Game of Thrones universe with his scores for the prequel, House of The Dragon. Ramin’s work in the series has helped Game of Thrones soundtrack score a billion plays worldwide.

According to a new poll, Game of Thrones is among the top five television series to boast such a soundtrack, notching up total plays of one billion.

Game Of Thrones soundtrack scores over a billion plays worldwide

The research from telly experts at Freesat analysed over 100 television shows’ soundtracks to discover the world’s favourite, with Netflix original Stranger Things in the first place. The 1980s-set sci-fi soundtrack racked up five billion plays spread out over six soundtrack albums. HBO fantasy epic Game of Thrones came in fourth.

The study looked into the most played soundtracks, average plays per soundtrack, the most loved theme tunes and the most played song from the top soundtracks.

Based on total plays Game of Thrones, came in just behind This Is Us, with 1.3bn plays. One song from Game Of Thrones season six, Light Of The Seven by Ramin Djawadi, picked up one million plays alone.

To make it fair, the research also looked at average plays, taking an average play count across all the tracks.

Game of Thrones Main Title made the top 10, coming in at sixth place with 46.6 million plays. Other theme tunes in the top included Big Little Lies and Band Of Brothers.

Netflix’s The Sandman releases first look at Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer: Queen of Hell

The TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is one of DC’s most highly anticipated projects. The Netflix series garnered quite some attention, as it includes an ensemble of highly talented casts, including Game of Thrones alums. Gwendoline Christie, who played Brienne of Tarth in the fantasy series, will play a gender-swapped version of Lucifer in the show. And she is highly excited about it. Netflix has finally released a first look at Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie on a new poster of the drama series The Sandman.

Netflix’s newest DC series The Sandman provides the first look at Gwendoline Christie as the Queen of Hell, a female version of Lucifer.

At Saturday’s virtual DC FanDome event, viewers got a glimpse at the Game of Thrones alum as the series’ Lucifer, the ruler of Hell. The first look images see Christie donning dark attire and a pair of ominous-looking wings.

Netflix’s newest DC series The Sandman provides the first look at Gwendoline Christie as the Queen of Hell, a female version of Lucifer.

Based on the popular comic book series, the series is described as 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 tries to fix all the cosmic and human mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
