Game of Thrones releases new photos from Season 8 Episode 1

game-of-thrones-releases-new-photos-from-season-8-episode-1-8008435

Game of Thrones is returning this April with less than 11 days for its premiere. We’ve been so far treated with the official trailer, a bunch of new promos and footages along with a spooky official teaser that portrays all major characters dead. But, though HBO tries to propel us in that direction yet we can’t ship all the major characters dying. Then, to lighten up our mood a bit HBO recently released a bunch of new promo photos via the express. Let’s have a look and analyse what each one means.

There are a lot of expectations from the first episode of the eight season – the reveal of Jon Snow’s parentage, a number of reunions, and much more. The new promotional photos from the episode seem to be pointing at the same. Starting off from King’s Landing, we can see Cersei Lannister and her hand Qyburn in the Throne room. They are perhaps addressing Euron Greyjoy and Harry Strickland from Golden Company.

Next, are two images of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen perhaps just before making their way to Winterfell. Jon seems to be showing his home to his love interest/aunt-in-disguise from a distance.

Next, are a few glimpses from Daenerys and crew’s arrival to Winterfell. Starting off with a still of Daenerys who seems to be standing next to Jon – you can tell from his furry cloak. You can also see Tyrion Lannister and Missandei in the background.

Up next are the Starks. Sansa Stark seems to be all ready to give Daenerys and Jon a warm welcome with Bran Stark and Brienne of Tarth by her side.

Next still among the promo photos is of Jorah Mormont and Ser Davos Seaworth – the trustees of Dany and Jon standing together, followed by a still of Jorah and Dany.

Up next are Jon and Daenerys together. I’m not sure if these two are standing together during the opening scene or in a later shot standing over the Winterfell Battlements.

Next shot is of a spider seated in a cart. I mean, literally Lord Varys in a cart on his way to Winterfell.

Next, are a number of photos of Winterfell Great Hall where you can find a bunch of characters like Lyanna Mormont, Tyrion, Ser Davos, Yohn Royce, Brienne of Tarth, and Dany.

Next, are two stills of Jorah and Daenerys in what appears to be a room full of scrolls and books. Perhaps this is Sansa’s room or Samwell Tarly or Bran’s room. But, I can’t still figure out the purpose of them being there perhaps to have a discussion.

The final shot in the promo photos that interests me a lot is of Sansa Stark – the Lady of Winterfell in a brand new armour, perhaps from Episode 2. This is the armour that she was talking about in a couple of previous interviews.  Her armour actually seems to have derived or taken reference from Arya Stark – lady you really need to stop copying traits!

So, what were your thoughts on these brand new promotional photos? How excited are you for the final season of Game of Thrones?

Game Of Thrones Season 8 airs on 14th April, 9 PM in USA and on Hotstar at the same time, which translates to a Monday, 15th April, 6:30 am IST stream for the Indian fans.

Watching our favorite stars play out a radically different character has always been a matter of interest. One of the most likable characters on our favorite show Game of Thrones was Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington. Unlike Jon, Kit seems to know something in Criminals season 2 trailer.

Kit plays the role of a smug estate agent, who is accused of rape. He gets frustrated about being questioned about the same in the trailer. The show’s setting gives you chills as he establishes himself as a self-entitled rich guy who gets what he wants. His angry outbursts only make it worse for him. But is he guilty?

Harington’s new character is a far cry from his bumbling, humble, and heroic character of Jon Snow. Jon Snow was a life-changing role for Kit (Check out his farewell speech for Game of Thrones), but the new edgy role will solidify his versatility. Not to mention his new haircut for the show, sure to gather some attention.

The Netflix series turned in heads after the introduction of its cast for season two. Other than Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, the show has cast 3 more extremely talented artists. Kunal Nayyar from The Big Bang Theory, Sophie Okonedo, an Oscar nominee, and Sharon Horgan from the comedy Catastrophe will also be seen in the series.

From not knowing anything as Jon Snow, to a cunning, perverted estate agent, Kit Harington has come a long way. Being a fan favorite on one of the biggest TV shows ever made, his job will not be easy as a different character. We can be sure he can pull it off with his amazing acting skills.

What do you think about his role in Criminals season 2? Tell us in the comments below.

Some actors in Hollywood are famous for their macho style. Jason Momoa has made a name for himself in that category, in each of his roles. Be it Khal Drogo of Game of Thrones, or Arthur Curry of Aquaman, the actor reeks of badassery. He has done it yet again as Duncan Idaho in the latest movie adaptation of the sci-fi novel Dune.

Jason Momoa sports an unbearded look as Duncan Idaho in the Dune movie trailer. He looks menacing even without his beard. His character, Duncan, is a total badass in House Atreides. Jason compared his character to Han Solo of Star Wars in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Momoa received widespread praise for his work as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. His character as a powerful warlord, who was the leader of a huge Dothraki army created an impactful image in the audience’s mind. It was so impressive people used to get confused if he knew English at all! Jason played the role for 10 episodes in season 1.

Dune is an award-winning novel written by author Frank Herbert in 1965. Dune was first adapted for the big screen by David Lynch in 1984. It was a success on the box-office and the film is still revered by its fans. The new adaptation of the movie holds great promise and the fans are expecting it to be much better than the previous version.

The director of the new Dune movie is Denis Villeneuve. The movie is set to release on 18th December 2020. It is predicted to be one of the major films of this year. The presence of Jason Momoa makes it all the more exciting to watch.

What do you expect from the movie? Let us know in the comments below.

Game of Thrones will always have a special place in all our hearts. It is a revered TV series for both fans and the crew alike. There has been a tradition in film industry to provide Easter eggs related to a franchise that has made an impact on pop culture. One such Easter egg was spotted in Maisie Williams’ new action-comedy Two Weeks To Live.

A recent clip of one of the episodes revealed a welcome surprise for the fans of Game of Thrones. In that scene, Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Kim is being attacked by an unknown individual. Maisie retaliates in a way that was reminiscent of her role Arya Stark from Game of Thrones.

Maisie’s character, Kim, attacks back the same way Arya Stark did against the Night King. In Game of Thrones season 8 episode 3, Arya appeared out of nowhere to attack the Night King, played by Vladimir Furdik. The Night King grabs her by the throat, and all hope seems lost. Arya pulls off a surprise move by slipping her dagger to her other hand and stabbing the night king, killing him.

In the TV series Two Weeks To Live, Maisie pulls off a similar stunt. It was a subtle nod to a tribute to her former role. As Kim, she stands back to her attacker by slipping a glass bottle to her other hand, and smashing it on his head.

The scene was definitely a wow moment for her fans. It was also a chance for the actress to relive her time as Arya. What do you think about the show? Tell us in the comments below.
