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.
An official trailer for the upcoming science fiction thriller Morgan has been released by 20th Century Fox. We saw a teaser trailer for the movie just last month.
The movie comes from first time feature director Luke Scott, the son of Ridley Scott (who is a producer on the project). It stars Kate Mara (The Martian, House of Cards), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Atlantis), Toby Jones (Captain America, The Hunger Games), Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey), Boyd Holbrook (Narcos, Jane Got a Gun), Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Sunshine), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight, Fast Times at Ridgemont High), and Paul Giamatti (Sideways, Cinderella Man).
I don’t typically cover who’s dating who in the celebrity world, but every so often there’s a coupling that just needs to be talked about. And this time around, it’s the actors who play Jon Snow and Ygritte on the popular HBO series Game Of Thrones.
For a while now, it’s been speculated that Jon Snow actor Kit Harington and Ygritte actress Rose Leslie were dating in real life, and the two have made it a point over the years to deny the rumors. But, now the former co-stars have confirmed it by making their first public appearance together, which was on the red carpet at Sunday night’s Olivier Awards at The Royal Opera House in London, England.
Check out the images here below of the actors together on the red carpet, as well as some video.
It’s the first full day of Comic-Con, and studios will be out in full force releasing all sorts of promotion to push their films, and amp up excitement in anticipation for their release. Today, Lionsgate will take over Hall H, and they are starting things a little early by releasing two new posters for The Last Witch Hunter starring Vin Diesel. These two posters feature two different iterations of Vin Diesel’s character, one representing his past self in the film, while the other is a modern-day version of the character, Kaulder.
