The ten-minute preview that was teased last week. Is it April yet?
I’m hearing this is actually a preview of a preview, with a significantly longer version coming with the Boardwalk Empire finale next week.
A new teaser aired with tonight’s True Blood finale for next year’s adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Check it out:
There’s also a brief behind-the-scenes featuette:
And check out another still of Emilia Clarke as Daenerys at HBO’s site.
The first teaser for the upcoming Game of Thrones aired tonight, targeting the True Blood faithful. The video is very blink-and-you’ll-miss-it, but you can head over to the official page (or the fanblog Winter is Coming) for a good look at Sean Bean in costume.
Winter is actually coming. HBO must have liked the pilot for A Game of Thrones, because they ordered nine more episodes: By cable standards, that’s pretty much an entire season. Filming starts in June, and we can expect the series to debut next spring.
Shocker! Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen took the Razzies for Worst Picture, Worst Director, and Worst Screenplay. As for actual entertainment value, Sandra Bullock showed up in person to accept Worst Actress for All About Steve: If she gets an Academy Award tonight (for The Blind Side) she’ll become the first actress to win both a Razzie and an Oscar in the same year.
Nothing new under the sun. Guy Ritchie wants to remake Excalibur “in the tone of Star Wars.” There’s also something going down with Warren Ellis, and didn’t Showtime have The Tudors team signed to do a Camelot series? To all this I say: Haven’t the Arthurian legends suffered enough?
Good news, everyone! Futurama returns to its rightly place as a half-hour show in June.
