We’re just a week away from the premiere of the highly anticipated eighth and final season of the HBO series Game Of Thrones. Not surprisingly, the network’s marketing machine is out in full force, especially in New York City, where the red carpet Season 8 premiere was held and also where a replica of the Iron Throne sat on display for a few days at Rockefeller Center.
On Saturday, in Studio 8H of 30 Rock, Kit Harington, one of the main stars of Game Of Thrones, hosted Saturday Night Live, where they of course incorporated the HBO series into some of the sketches. The opening monologue saw some guest appearances from Harington’s GoT co-stars, while a pre-recorded sketch gave us a promo of HBO’s multiple planned Game Of Thrones spinoff series.
Everyone has heard of the phrase: “all good things must come to an end.” For years, Game of Thrones fans have been tuning in to see medieval action, blood being spilled, and treachery.
HBO has released an official trailer for the final season of the show, which will see Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) face a threat that doesn’t feel and is hard to kill. Check out the trailer below.

Director Dean DeBlois‘s How To Train Your Dragon films have taken audiences to visually stunning worlds where the skies are filled with dragons and a young Viking named Hiccup, who aspires to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a dragon killer, befriends Toothless, a black night fury. On this journey of self-discovery, Hiccup goes from a clumsy lanky misfit to courageous leader of his tribe. For the past ten years, we’ve seen Hiccup become the hero and leader he was always destined to be. And on this journey, he’s come across choices that would help develop who he is.
But it all comes to an end in this epic, and bittersweet, conclusion. Following what the previous two films have established, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is a visually stunning animated feature that ends the franchise on its own terms. Check out the full review here below.
