‘Game of Thrones': Why ‘The Prince That Was Promised’ Prophecy Mistranslation is a Big Deal

3 hours ago

(Note: This post contains spoilers for the July 23 episode of “Game of Thrones”, “Stormborn.”) For season after season of “Game of Thrones,” several people in Westeros have been worried about a certain prophecy about the Prince That Was Promised, the mythical figure who will lead the world in the fight to defeat the White Walkers. Melisandre (Carice van Houten), the Red Woman, spent most of “Game of Thrones” telling Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) he was the Prince That Was Promised. Obviously, that wasn’t true, since Stannis died. After that Melisandre thought it might be Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), since she. »

Game of Thrones 101: Theon Greyjoy’s Biggest Moments (Photos)

6 hours ago

Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) begins “Game of Thrones” as the cocky ward to Ned Stark. When Ned dies and Robb Stark leaves Winterfell, Theon gets a bit too cocky, and it’s downhill from there. But we saw him get redeemed in a few ways at the end of season 5 and in season 6… but did things go south in season 7? Here’s the story of Theon Greyjoy so far. At the beginning of the series, Theon lives at Winterfell with the Starks. That’s because his father, Balon Greyjoy, was defeated by Ned and Robert Baratheon in the rebellion. It’s. »

‘Game of Thrones': Theon Made the Right Call (Commentary)

7 hours ago

(Spoilers ahead for the July 23 episode of “Game of Thrones,” “Stormborn.” In the closing moments of “Stormborn,” the second episode of “Game of Thrones'” seventh season, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) was dealt a major setback when her fleet, commanded by renegade Ironborn Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan), was ambushed — and seemingly wrecked — by the fleet commanded by her uncle, King Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek). The shocker came after an entire episode spent lulling viewers into a false sense of safety with fan service moment after fan service moment, but made all the more shocking by the final scene. Yara’s brother, »

‘Game of Thrones’ 101: How Many Stark Direwolves Are Left?

8 hours ago

(Note: This post contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones.”) Way back in the first episode of “Game of Thrones,” the Stark family came across a direwolf mother that had been killed by a stag. The mom didn’t make it, but the puppies survived. With one direwolf for each of the six Stark children, they all became pets, forming some pretty intense bonds with the young Starks. All those direwolves turned out to be faithful, sometimes viciously protective companions to the Stark kids. But as “Game of Thrones” has worn on and the bodies have piled up, the direwolves haven’t always survived. »

First Big Holy S— Moment of ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Has Fans Freaking Out

9 hours ago

Lest you think the show is getting soft in its old age, “Game of Thrones” proved tonight that seven seasons in, it can still shock the hell out of viewers. The show’s 50 minutes were spent giving an incredibly satisfying amount of fan service, like Arya’s reunion with Nymeria, the oral consummation of the romance between Missandei and Grey Worm, what looks like the long-awaited meeting between Jon Snow and Daenerys, Samwell Tarly’s war on greyscale, Jon Snow dissing the hell out of Littlefinger, Cersei Lanniser going full-Trump, and much much more. And then in the last 10 minutes, »

‘Game of Thrones': Why Arya Told Nymeria ‘That’s Not You’

9 hours ago

(Note: This post contains spoilers for the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 Episode 2, “Stormborn.”) Six seasons later, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) was finally reunited with an old friend in the second episode of Season 7: her direwolf, Nymeria. On the road north to finally meet back up with her family at Winterfell, Arya camped with her horse, alone in the woods. There, she was accosted by a pack of wolves that looked like they thought they’d found some easy dinner. Armed with Needle, her sword, Arya prepared for a fight.

‘Game of Thrones’ Recap: The Next War Finally Begins

10 hours ago

The second season of “Game of Thrones” Season 7 angled to be more preparation for the big moments coming later in the season — and ended with flaming ships and Daenerys’ allies running into some serious problems. “Stormborn” started aptly amidst a storm at Dragonstone, the new home base (and ancestral home) for Daenerys in Westeros. There, Dany gets some important advice from Tyrion. Sure, she could attack King’s Landing immediately, but it would result in thousands of deaths. “Conquering Westeros would be easy for you, but you’re not here to be queen of the ashes,” Tyrion told her.

10 hours ago

It’s a tough life in the “Game of Thrones” universe, and most folks haven’t gotten out alive. Let’s look back at the deaths on “Game of Thrones” that we found particularly shocking, disturbing or otherwise totally messed up. There’s been a bunch of them. Now that we’re beyond the territory of the books on which the series is based, it’s only going to get more shocking from here. Daenerys Targaryen’s’ abusive brother Viserys got his comeuppance in season 1 when Khal Drogo dumped molten gold on his head. Also Read: 'Game of Thrones »

‘Power': Angela Valdes Finally Does Something Right

10 hours ago

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if  you haven’t watched Sunday’s episode of “Power”) We’re going to preface this by saying that we don’t really like Angela Valdes (Lela Loren) very much — that’s actually a pretty nice way of expressing how we genuinely feel about her (Hint: she’s annoying af). Now that we’ve gotten our biases out of the way, Sunday night’s episode of “Power” on Starz won Angela some cool points because she finally did something right for once. Last week’s episode showed the Ausa (Assistant United States Attorney »

‘In This Corner of the World’ Review: Haunting Anime Works Better as Character Piece than War Story

11 hours ago

Based on a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Fumiyo Kōno, the animated feature “In This Corner of the World” is an engrossing but sometimes jumbled adaptation by writer-director Sunao Katabuchi (“Mai Mai Miracle”). Set during the period from 1935 to 1945, this film is first-rate when depicting domestic challenges in the life of its heroine Suzu Urano, but it is somewhat hollow when foreshadowing the atomic bomb that is about to be dropped on her hometown of Hiroshima. “They called me a daydreamer,” Suzu says in her opening narration. The melody of what sounds like “O Come All Ye Faithful” »

3 Reasons ‘Valerian’ Failed to Launch at the Box Office

11 hours ago

While “Dunkirk” and “Girls Trip” found success at the box office, “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” did not. Produced by EuropaCrop and distributed by Stx, Luc Besson‘s latest sci-fi odyssey cost a reported $180 million to make, but only saw an estimated $17 million in its domestic opening. That put it in fifth this weekend, failing to even beat a third-week “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which made $22 million. EuropaCorp, which is owned by Besson, won’t take a big financial hit, as it brought in outside investors and sold distribution rights to mitigate the cost of the blockbuster, but »
