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

Jon Snow’s resurrection on Game Of Thrones a few episodes ago is 98% of what we care about in this sixth season of the series. What will he do with this new lease on life, especially since he declared last week at Castle Black that his watch is ended? In this week’s Episode 6.4 “Book of the Stranger,” we get a clue as to what’s coming next for him. We also find out if Daenerys Targaryen will be sentenced to stay with the Dosh Khaleen at the temple in Vaes Dothrak, while Tyrion Lannister brokers peace with his Queen’s enemies, Littlefinger returns to little Lord Robin Arryn to plant a new seed, Cersei and Jaime have plans of their own to deal with the Faith Militant, imprisoned Margaery Tyrell finally gets to see her brother Loras, and finally, a reunion we’ve been waiting for!

Game Of Thrones Season 6.3 Daenarys

Game of Thrones
Episode 6.3 “Oathbreaker”
Directed by Dan Sackheim
Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss
Starring Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Carice van Houten, Alfie Allen, Natalie Dormer
HBO
Air date: May 8, 2016

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

Last week’s Season 6 episode of Game Of Thrones started out slow, but ended so insanely awesome with the resurrection of Jon Snow! This is something that has not happened in the books, which means that the TV show is off on its own storyline now. We also saw Ned Stark’s sister, Lyanna, on screen for the first time in a vision shown to Bran, which included a look at a young Hodor back when he could speak coherently.

This week’s installment, 6.3 “Oathbreaker,” brings with it a lot of hope that fans will finally get some answers about the past. In another one of Bran’s visions of the past, we see the battle at the Tower Of Joy, where a young Ned Stark goes to rescue his sister Lyanna. There’s also lots of Jon Snow and the aftermath of his returning to life, including what he experienced in the afterlife, as well as the fate of the traitors who murdered him. Cersei and Jaime plot their revenge; King Tommen is still whining; and Daenarys is on her way to the Khal Widow retirement home, which is not as relaxing as it sounds. Meanwhile, in Meereen, Tyrion, Varys, and the rest of Dany’s crew plan their next move; there’s new surprises in Winterfell with Ramsay Bolton and his bannermen; Arya returns to the House of Black and White; and Sam reveals a new future for Gilly and the baby.

Game Of Thrones 6.2 Sansa

Game of Thrones
Episode 6.2 “The Red Woman”
Directed by Jeremy Podeswa
Written by Dave Hill
Starring Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Carice van Houten, Alfie Allen, Natalie Dormer, Jonathan Pryce
HBO
Air date: May 1, 2016

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

Last week’s Season 6 premiere of Game Of Thrones was packed with returning characters and the tying up of loose ends. After waiting a year, there was a lot of satisfaction in the storyline; therefore, I didn’t expect much to happen in the follow-up episode, 6.2 “Home.” And for the most part, even though there were some nice new tidbits and a few semi-shocking events, the episode for the most part was slow.

But, with a show like Game Of Thrones (just like with AMC’s The Walking Dead, a slow episode means that something is doing to go down in the last few minutes. And oh boy, did it!

Game of Thrones
Episode 6.1 “The Red Woman”
Directed by Jeremy Podeswa
Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss
Starring Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Carice van Houten, Alfie Allen, Natalie Dormer, Jonathan Pryce
HBO
Air date: April 24, 2016

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

The Season 6 premiere of Game Of Thrones was certainly an anticipated one, with the fate of so many characters left in question a year ago at the end of Season 5. Is Jon Snow really dead? Who exactly has taken Daenerys captive? Did Sansa and Theon survive their leap off the high walls of Winterfell? Will Arya remain blind? Where is Bran? What will Cersei and her twin brother/lover Jaime do now that yet another child of theirs has been murdered? And will Cersei have her revenge against the High Sparrow and his Sparrow minions who imprisoned and humiliated her? What will happen to Margaery and her brother Loras, both of whom are still prisoners of the High Sparrow. Will King Tommen ever leave his room? Where is Littlefinger and what’s his next move? What will happen in the War of Five Kings now that Stannis is dead? Will anyone call out the Red Woman now that her prophecies have been proven false? And will the Wildlings and the Night’s Watch men work together to defeat the invading White Walkers?

Titled “The Red Woman,” Episode 6.1, I’m sad to report, does not have anyone going off on Melisandre, the Red Woman, regarding her seriously faulty prophesies, but, it does thankfully touch base with all the aforementioned characters except Bran, Littlefinger, and the White Walkers.

Gods Of Egypt Gerard Butler

Lionsgate has released a new trailer for their all-out epic film Gods of Egypt that will serve as their Super Bowl spot for the upcoming movie.

Watch Super Bowl spot titled “War” here below.

Gods of Egypt has Gerard Butler leading as the god of darkness Set, who’s usurped the Egyptian throne with aspirations to rule the world, although his style of leadership involves much chaos, conflict, and destruction. Game Of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (who plays Jaime Lannister on the HBO series) stars as Horus, is beheld as the only one who can say Egypt from Set’s tyranny.

Lionsgate Apologizes For Whitewashed ‘Gods Of Egypt’ Oversight

Gods of Egypt header

By now, in 2015, you’d think that studios would have caught on to the idea that they would want to cast a film like Gods of Egypt with actors who are, I don’t know, Egyptian. Just so that the actors can properly reflect the ethnicity of that time period. But after seeing the first posters and trailer for the film, it’s no surprise that there was an uproar over the idea that headlining star Gerard Butler could even pass as a Egyptian. Let’s not forget that Nikola Coster-Waldau and Brenton Thwaites, who also star in this film, are both white as well.

As confusing as this may sound, the film still got made, and with the all the vitriol it’s already been getting with just the first trailer and posters alone because it is so whitewashed, director Alex Proyas and Lionsgate have come out to apologize for it. See what they had to say below.

‘Gods Of Egypt’ Trailer: Humans Against CGI Ancient Egypt Backdrop

Gods of Egypt header

Aesthetically, the first set of posters for Alex Proyas‘s Gods of Egypt did not look good, and obviously that should not be a representation of the film itself. Often times, it is though. But we should never let the look of posters cloud our judgement, even if this is a pretty white-washed film.

But holding out on the hopes that the film may be actually entertaining seems like a futile effort, especially since the look and feel of this new trailer gives off a wretched whiff of horribly bad CGI backdrops, with equally bad CG effects and even worse CG characters. Check out the full trailer for Gods of Egypt below.

Ian McShane Game of Thrones Deadwood Screenshot

Deadwood actor, Ian McShane is coming home to HBO! He has been officially cast in Season 6 of Game Of Thrones. Who he will be, is as yet unknown. But it seems a good fit. He already looks like he lives in one of the Seven Kingdoms, although I do feel he would be more at home in the North. Who knows? Maybe he is in the Bran and Hodor storyline, when they return in season 6. We really don’t know much about season 6 yet, but we will give it as we get it. Tune in right here.

More on that and an 8th season below.
