Game of Thrones has been known for its great collaborations and merchandising, and the show seems to have one of its tie-ups of all time in time for the end of the show. As some of you might know, Xbox recently released an All-Digital Edition of its popular Xbox One S console, which arrives without a disc drive. They are now giving away two Game of Thrones inspired limited edition units of the same. Read on!

Xbox had been teasing this reveal for a while, but we expected them to release a purchasable console with a Game of Thrones theme. However, as of now, it seems as if these are very, very limited edition consoles. There are two consoles, one is a House Targaryen edition console, while the other one is a Night King themed unit. According to Xbox’s official blog post:

“The House Targaryen console is covered in leather dragon scales and prominently features the Targaryen crest. The Night King console is affixed with weathered tin metal to replicate his iconic armor.”

The giveaway is open from today till May 22. For the Targaryen console, you will have to go check Xbox’s Twitter page:

There will be only two winners, but Xbox also says that they have one more surprise planned for Game of Thrones fans in the coming week. Are you excited about these consoles, and would you buy one if they ever came to market? Tell us in the comments, down below!

The year 2020 has proved to be nothing less than a survival show- people struggling to get their life on track. Game of Thrones may have been about the politics of the authority, it had its own survival story. For example, how the Wildlings survived Beyond the Wall. Tormund Giantsbane, the best buddy of Jon Snow, teaches you how to survive with a smile. Kristofer Hivju, who played the wildling on-screen, has a similar attitude in real life. Moreover, he’s back for another adventure with his wife Gry Molvær Hivju.

As if the Red Wedding year wasn’t enough, Hivju is ready to get wild like a real Viking. Hivju’s show, The Ultimate Viking, calls upon its contestants to compete on various rough terrains and survive like a Viking. The show takes its inspiration from the History channel’s famous show the Vikings. The competition will span five weeks as contestants find their Viking-level physicality and mental strength arduously tested. The show hosted by Hivju and his wife will be streamed on the Smithsonian channel.

Even though the Game of Thrones-like scenery might be alluring, the contest is not so easy. Kristofer beat the COVID-19 infection a few months ago and is ready for another adventure. Are you excited about the show? Talk to us in the comments below!

The world is slowly trying to get back on its feet after the events of the Red Wedding year 2020. People are trying to maintain distance from each other as they eagerly wait for a vaccine. Nonetheless, people losing their jobs means there is also a rise in crime rates. In times like these, we wish for a superhero to exist in real life. Peter Dinklage, who played Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, has also appeared on various superhero movies. He will now play a superhero himself in the Toxic Avenger reboot.

Dinklage has worked with Marvel in the past for movies like X-Men: Days of future past and Avengers: Infinity war. He is no stranger to the superhero genre. Macon Blair of I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore fame is on board to write and direct.

The original Toxic Avenger was released in 1984 by Troma Entertainment. The story follows a 98-pound weakling who falls into a vat of toxic waste, mutating him into a hulking monstrosity. With his new powers, the now-Toxic Avenger (nicknamed Toxie) protects the people of his town from crime and corruption.

Peter Dinklage will also lend his voice in the upcoming animated movie Hitpig. Are you excited about the Toxic Avenger reboot? Talk to us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. The show’s cast has moved on to newer projects already. It is always pleasant to see our favourite stars from the show appear on other shows and movies. Jonathan Pryce, who played the silently dominating High Sparrow, recently joined the cast of All The Old Knives.

The Amazon Prime Video’s espionage thriller is directed by Janus Metz (Borg vs McEnroe). Laurence Fishburne (Matrix, Man of Steel) along with Jonathan Pryce are new additions to the cast. Chris Pine and Thandie Newton are playing the lead roles in the movie.

All the Old Knives is based on a book of the same name by Olen Steinhauer. The author has adapted it for the screen. The story follows ex-lovers Henry (Pine) and Celia (Newton), one a CIA agent and the other an ex-spy. They meet up for a dinner and discuss their times together.

The conversation steers towards a disastrous flight hijack which the CIA could not stop. Henry decides to find out what exactly happened back then.

Jonathan Pryce recently bagged the BAFTA award for his role in Two Popes. He promised to show off the title to his friendly rival on the show, Anthony Hopkins.
