Game of Thrones Season 8 official promo material is hitting us at speeds faster than before. In the last couple of days, we have had three promo videos and looks like HBO isn’t done yet. After one promo to get the hype train running, one to tease a reunion, and one more to show the death that is coming to us, HBO has now released a new poster for Season 8. Read on!
Game of Thrones posters have always been amazing, but HBO is really outdoing themselves with Season 8. This poster is spine chilling and shows various characters from the show dead, and their bodies laid down in the snow, together forming the Iron Throne. However, it’s interesting to see that even the Night King is a part of the poster and his body is lying next to Daenerys Targaryen. Check it out:
There’s war, there’s death, there’s art. We all know the White Walkers love their corpse art. We have seen their morbid corpse circles before, and this poster seems to show what they will probably end up doing after they’ve killed all the living. You might remember their past ‘artwork’:
This poster stuck with the ‘Aftermath’ theme of the latest promo, and it looks like HBO is warning us about the death that is to come. It also aligns itself well with the #ForTheThrone campaign that HBO has been running for Season 8. An earlier poster also featured the Iron Throne mashed up with the face of a dragon.

Game of Thrones has had some great taste and luck with their merchandising and other promotions. We have been seeing better-than-ever promotions this time around, with Season 8, and recently there were reports about Oreo teaming up with Game of Thrones to bring around some Game of Thrones styled Oreo cookies. Looks like they’re about to hit the stores soon. Read on!
Looks like Oreo is going all out with it, too. They remade the whole Game of Thrones opening sequence that we all adore, fully with Oreos.
Apparently, around 2,750 Oreo cookies were used to make this intro. Oreo apparently teamed up with creative agency 360i and Elastic, the creators of the actual opening sequence of Game of Thrones, to make this beauty, which explains why it’s so good and loyal to the original.
The Game of Thrones edition Oreos will come with sigils of House Lannister, House Targaryen, and House Stark, as well as The Night King, embossed on them in place of the regular design that these cookies usually come with.
The flavor seems to have been kept the same as the basic Oreos, so you needn’t worry. These special, limited edition will the shelves on April 8, about a week before the Season 8 premiere date, April 14. If you love Oreos, you might want to stock up on these as soon as they’re available. Maybe try and win one of the Game of Thrones edition Mountain Dew cans to go along with them.

With just 10 days to go for Game Of Thrones Season 8 to release, we have come across the first leak of the season and it turns out the leak has originated from the Game Of Thrones Season 8 premiere that was held in New York. Luckily, it’s not the entire episode that has been leaked online but just the opening credits scene and it’s really awesome and looks completely different. Warning, this post contains spoilers from the upcoming season.
A thing to keep in mind if you are still undecided about scrolling down. The info that has been leaked (yes that’s the appropriate word as it shouldn’t have been shared online before the official release date) is minor but it still gives us an idea about what might happen in the first episode and that makes it a spoiler but at the same time it reveals nothing that can be considered to be very important. So keeping this in mind you can decide whether you still want to scroll down or not.
We know that the intro gets modified based on the events that occur during the season and Game Of Thrones season 7 ended with the Night King bringing down the Wall with the help of the undead Viserion and we can see that change in the opening credits scene and it also reveals what we can expect in the first episode. You can watch the clip on Reddit. The source of the leak is Carice van Houten, so we are sure that Carice didn’t realize the video she was sharing on her Insta account would reveal things from the upcoming season. She has taken down the video but we are sure HBO must be really angry right now.

If you look carefully, the Wall is broken down and closer to the Wall lies Last Hearth, which belongs to House Umber. So we can expect some destruction happening at the Last Hearth in the first episode of season 8. There’s another clip that has surfaced online and it takes us to King’s Landing.

We can see that the intro is very different from the one we have been seeing all these seasons. The intro takes us inside the Red Keep, right to the dungeons where we can see Balerion’s skull lying in front of Cersei’s Dragon killer weapon. So that might mean that we can expect something important happening underneath the Red Keep.
What are your thoughts about these leaked clips? Let us know in the comments section.
With 38 awards and 128 nominations under its belt, Game of Thrones is no stranger to the International Emmy awards. But this one is special, for it celebrates the tremendous cultural significance GoT holds on a global scale.
Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be honoured with the 2019 International Emmy Founders Award for adapting George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ for HBO, The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently announced. The Founders Award honour creations that have made contributions to the history of television production have had a significant cultural impact throughout the world.
Game of Thrones has been shot in multiple locations of Northern Ireland, Morocco, Croatia, and Iceland. It airs in over 207 countries all over the world and is widely regarded as the most popular TV show ever. Academy President & CEO, Bruce L. Paisner agrees in his interview with Indiewire:
“David and D.B. are absolute game changers, visionary storytellers who have created, with their first foray into television, a record-breaking global cultural phenomenon with an international following like no other. We look forward to honouring their extraordinary talent and the ‘Game of Thrones’ legacy with our Founders Award.”

Benioff and Weiss have expressed their gratitude with a recent statement on this as well:
“The International Academy does us all a great honour. From cast to crew to locations, the ‘Game of Thrones’ effort was truly international, and this award rightly belongs to all the people who worked so hard for so many years to bring the show to life”.
In receiving the Emmy Founders award, Benioff and Weiss join a list of illustrious television writers and creators including Mathew Weiner (Mad Men) and Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey).
The award will be presented to the showrunners on the Annual Emmy Gala set to be held on November 25th in New York. From the little we have seen of Game of Thrones Season 8 so far, that does not seem like the only award Team Game Of Thrones is going to take home that night!
Game of Thrones Season 8 premiers on April 14th on HBO worldwide.
