The Movie God   |  

Watchmen

In 2015 it was reported that HBO was considering a TV series based on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel Watchmen. Then, earlier this year in June, we found out that LOST and The Leftovers co-creator Damon Lindelof was in talks to work on the potential series.

Now comes word that things have taken another step toward the series becoming a reality. HBO has put in an order for a pilot episode of the series, and they’ve also commissioned more scripts. In addition to that, a writer’s room for the series has also begun work on the show.

The Movie God   |  

True Detective

It’s been three years, believe it or not, since True Detective arrived on HBO to massive critical praise. It’s actually already been two years since the not so well-received second season ended.

A third season was a large question mark for a long while now. Back at the beginning of the year, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys said ideas were being exchanged but they weren’t rushing things. Now comes word that season three is officially happening, and some details have been shared.

More on the new season’s story and who’s involved below.

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

On last week’s Game Of Thrones, oh man, oh man, there be DRAGONS and Dragon Fire!! But first, at Winterfell, Littlefinger gave Bran the Valyrian steel dagger that kicked off the War of the Five Kings, but why did he do this? Bran then gave the weapon to his sister, Arya, who has finally returned home, but she’s not the little girl everyone remembers — she’s a deadly warrior now. How does her sister Lady Sansa feel about that? Not too thrilled, it seems. Arya wants to train with Brienne of Tarth, who was impressed by the girl’s fighting style. On Dragonstone, Jon Snow showed Daenerys cave drawings beneath keep that prove that the First Men and Children of the Forest aligned to fight the White Walkers. After seeing this, Daenerys told Jon she will help him fight the undead threat… if he bends the knee to her. Later, cowardly Theon and some Greyjoy crewmen arrived to see the Queen, but she was gone! Where did she go? Cue Daenerys riding the dragon Drogon into battle with her Dothraki horde against the Lannister army, led by Jaime. Drogon suffered a minor injury in the fray that downed him, but he still had his fire power. As Jaime foolishly charged at Daenerys, Drogon let out a blast of fire, but Jaime was saved from the flames when someone knocked him from his horse at the last second. But the knight was knocked into the bay and was last seen sinking down in the water wearing his heavy armor and sporting his golden prosthetic hand. Will Jaime survive this? And if he does, will he be captured by Daenerys or will he make it back to King’s Landing to his love Cersei?

Game Of Thrones Season 7 Jon Snow Petyr Baelish

Game of Thrones
Episode 7.2 “Stormborn”

Written by Bryan Cogman
Starring Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Alfie Allen
HBO
Air date: July 23, 2017

WARNING: Spoilers for HBO’s Game Of Thrones….

Last week’s Season 7 premiere of HBO’s Game Of Thrones opened with the mass yet justified murdering of the men of House Frey at the vengeful hands of Arya Stark. It was a long-awaited, satisfying moment for the series, but it didn’t set the stage for the rest of the episode, which was calm in comparison. We saw Bran and Meera finally make it to The Wall, while nearby the White Walkers were marching south. At Winterfell, the new King in the North Jon Snow pardoned the treasonous bannermen that had fought with the Boltons — he needs as many men — and women — as he can for the coming battle against the dead. Because as we learned right away from this season, Winter Is Here. Sansa Stark has learned over the years to be more ruthless and less trusting from her wicked captors — Cersei Lannister and Ramsay Bolton — and sly mentor Petyr Baelish, and wants Jon to be so as well, but he’s not willing to go that route. Meanwhile, Cersei, now the self-proclaimed Queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, demanded that House Stark come to King’s Landing to bend the knee to her (which they won’t). In King’s Landing, there was tension between Cersei and her twin/lover Jaime Lannister, which only increased after the arrival of Euron Greyjoy, who wants a marriage alliance with the new Queen. In Old Town, Samwell Tarly was close to discovering how to defeat the White Walkers; we also saw that Jorah Mormont is there as well, alive but still infected with Greyscale. Finally, Daenerys Targaryen and her allies — and dragons — made it Westeros to her ancestral home of Dragonstone, where she is ready to begin planning her takeover.
