‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8: Everything We Know About the Final Season

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8: Everything We Know About the Final Season
[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7, through the finale, follow.]

The Season 7 finale of “Game of Thrones” brought with it one big death (Lord Baelish, we hardly knew ye), a big reveal (Jon Snow’s real name, in fact, is Aegon Targaryen), and a big scary ice dragon destroying the Wall protecting Westeros from the North.

It’s all leading up to the show’s final chapter, which we’ll see when it… eventually… premieres. Here’s what do we know right now about Season 8, based on reports and interviews with the cast and producers.

Pre-Production Has Already Begun in Northern Ireland

This is per the site The Watchers on the Wall, which also spotlighted some photos taken by a reader of construction happening right now.

Production Begins In October 2017

This is according to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who told Collider that he’ll be back on the set then. If the filming lasts the same length of time as previous seasons,

Game Of Thrones: Season 8 Episodes May All Be Feature Length

  • LRM Online
The end seems to be drawing ever nearer for Game of Thrones. I say that to emphasize the “seems” aspect, for as time goes on, it almost feels like the show is getting farther and farther away from ending. Season 7 was already pushed back a bit, and HBO even said there’s a possibility that Season 8 will get pushed back to 2019 if it would result in a better product. As such, we have a potential for another solid two years of Game of Thrones.

And that’s not even the most of it. The runtimes for all the Season 7 episodes have come in, and while we have a lot less episodes this year than in previous ones, each episode is running longer — with the finale set to hit HBO at an astounding 82 minutes long. Believe it or not, that’s technically the length of a feature! But if you thought that would be an outlier,

David D’Amato, The Villain of The Must-Watch Documentary ‘Tickled’, Has Died

  • Slash Film
David D’Amato, the central “villain” of the popular 2016 documentary film Tickled, has passed away at age 55. The movie was one of David Chen’s best films of 2016 and I recently caught up with it when it hit HBO. I’m not sure Tickled is a great film, but it’s certainly compelling, weird, and a must-watch.

A Beautiful Video Compilation of Every Best Cinematography Winner

This is splendid. YouTube channel Burger Fiction has put together a beautiful compilation video of every Best Cinematography winner at the Oscars from 1927 to 2015, when it was award to Emmanuel Lubezki of The Revenant, a back-to-back win after Birdman. For admirers of cinematography, this is a breathtaking and awe-inspiring video. And it just makes me want to watch everything all over again. From Cleopatra, The Thief Of Bagdad, Ben-Hur, Doctor Zhivago, Dance With Wolves, Braveheart, The Aviator, Couching Tiger Hidden Dragon, There Will Be Blood to Inception, there's so many excellent films awarded in this category. Thanks to David Chen fro the tip on this. Originally from YouTube, made by Burger Fiction. For the full list of all the Best Cinematography winners seen in this, visit their Tumblr. The Best Cinematography category has been around since the very beginning. From 1939 to 1967 (with the exception of 1957), there were also separate awards

  • PEOPLE.com
After the inauguration of President Donald Trump on Friday, women’s marches were held all over the world, with people traveling long distances to Washington, D.C., or walking in their hometowns.

And it wasn’t just those of voting age who marched. Plenty of kids came out to participate, too — and they brought with them some of the best signs from the marches.

Like this kid, who knows that sometimes, words just aren’t enough.

David Chen’s Most Anticipated Films of 2017 [Podcast]

  • Slash Film
Sometimes humans can be terrible at predicting things, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun when we try. My previous attempts to predict my favorite films of the year are often wildly inaccurate — inevitably, my actual favorite films of the year will contain lots of entries that I couldn’t have possibly foreseen. That being said, for […]

David Chen’s Top 10 Films of 2016

This is a year where you had to work to see great films.

Instead, they were often quieter releases that I had to read up on […]
