'Game Of Thrones': King's Landing Gets Real, So What's Next?

From baby names to Brazilian sea slugs, the influence of the HBO drama is only getting more powerful.

Quote
When the fourth season of "Game of Thrones" finally premieres this spring, it will be emerging into a world gone utterly mad for Westeros, wargs, and ominous warnings of a coming winter. The enthusiasm for the HBO drama has been building over the past three years to become a worldwide phenomenon, with evidence cropping up everywhere of people's passionate love for the show

  With the "Game of Thrones" audience only getting bigger, bolder, and more powerful, one thing is clear: it's not going to end here. What will come next in this takeover-by-storm? Here are our predictions:

2019: Ned Stark's face is added to the summit of Mount Rushmore, though insiders know it's also the final resting place for Sean Bean's bones.

 Funko's 'Legacy' line of Game of Thrones figures leak out

Quote
  We've known for a while that Funko had acquired the Game of Thrones license for their new range of 6-inch action figures (which will also include Firefly), but now we can get a glimpse of what they'll actually look like - pictures of the first wave have hit eBay, ahead of their reveal at the New York Toy Fair.

Review: Game of Thrones Legacy Collection Ned Stark
http://kastorskorner.com/wp/2014/02/26/review-game-thrones-legacy-collection-ned-stark/


Quote
Our time with Ned Stark on Game of Thrones was tragically short, but his impact over the course of the entire series more than justifies his spot in the first wave of Legacy figures from Funko.  And he’s another awesome figure– filled with show accurate detail from his Hand of the King costume worn in King’s Landing, and featuring the best portrait of Sean Bean we have ever seen in this scale.

Win a Set of Game of Thrones Figures from Dark Horse
Quote
Ned Stark
Ned Stark lives up to his namesake, his face etched in melancholy. It’s almost as if he’s predicting his Season One climax of decapitation and prosthetic George Bush, Jr. noggin controversy. Ultimately, Stark is a classy figure that fits more in the statue end of the spectrum. He not only sports a flexible overcoat etched with hundreds of texture marks, but his interior dress is also flexible. Next to Drogo, Stark resembles his actor the most, with Sean Bean’s steely glare replicated well. The giant broadsword reflects light and an elongated belt hangs alongside it — a very nice touch.

Mixing Up Some Comic Chemistry in Game of Thrones
Quote
Game of Thrones is not a comedy, but it plays like one on TV.
Comedy is as important in drama as it is in life. Try to get into the headspace where you can watch Casablanca as a comedy. It works. It's almost a rom-com. Game of Thrones is not a comedy, but it could be. It has all the elements: Witty lines, alert timing, visual gags and chemistry. The dragons slay me

 That straight man dynamic is all about relationships which goes into chemistry. There are many comic duos on Game of Thrones. King Robert (Mark Addy) has Ned (Sean Bean).
Ned can get in a couple zingers of his own, just as his rolly polly, slightly dimmer partner Robert gets most of the punchlines. The two characters establish their brand of comic chemistry immediately, in the series opener. Robert comes on gruff and kingly, only to break down into the good-natured, playful marauder he can be in Ned’s company. Sure, Eddard can be a nudge, calling Rob out on his weight and drinking, curbing his appetite for whoring and slaying dragon queens with their unborns and such. But at the end of the day, they can kick back and laugh it all off. They might not be the best leads in an Old Vic reprisal of Waiting for Godot, but they certainly wouldn’t be the worst.

Twelve Days, One Throne: Sky Atlantic to air every episode of Game of Thrones this Christmas

Quote
This Christmas, Sky Atlantic gives the ultimate TV gift: every episode of the multi award-winning Game of Thrones over twelve consecutive days, giving new viewers the chance to see the show everyone is talking about and fans the opportunity to revisit the epic adventure from the very beginning.

From Saturday 20 December onwards, Sky and NOW TV customers can enjoy between three or four episodes of Sky Atlantic's must-see drama every night from 9pm.

A blockbusting saga of revenge, betrayal, greed and lust, Game of Thrones is as dark, gritty, shocking and absorbing as the international best-selling books by George RR Martin that it's based on. And with scintillating performances from an expansive and talented cast including Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Charles Dance, Game of Thrones has enthralled critics and audiences alike, with The Times declaring This is as good as it gets and Radio Times calling it an exceptional show in its prime.

Sky Atlantic's Twelve Days, One Throne begins with the first three instalments from Game of Thrones series one from 9pm onwards on Saturday 20 December. For the next eleven nights viewers can enjoy between three or four unmissable episodes each evening from 9pm.

Telltale’s first Game of Thrones video game trailer will give you the chills

Quote
On Thursday, Telltale released the first trailer for its Game of Thrones adventure game, a six-episode series which follow House Forrester, one of the houses that hasn’t yet appeared in the HBO series. The trailer is not only our first look at the game in action, but also serves as the reveal of a few familiar voices who will be reprising their roles from the TV show in the game.
Tyrion Lannister performed by Peter Dinklage
Cersei Lannister performed by Lena Heady
Margaery Tyrell performed by Natalie Dormer
Ramsay Snow performed by Iwan Rheon

Telltale says that more actors will appear in the game in the future as well, but the guarded developer doesn’t want to spoil the surprise.

Telltale Game of Thrones - Episode One: 'Iron from Ice': GAME REVIEW - SPOILERS

Quote
Many TV actors disappoint when they cross over into the world of video games.

This is usually because the quality of the scripts is poor and because the actors' hearts aren't really in it. (See Sean Bean and Patrick Stewart in Oblivion, or Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.)

But this game bucks that particular trend, and does it in some style

 It can't have been easy convincing members of the Game of Thrones cast to take part in an ambitious computer game spin-off (by far Telltale's most challenging project to date). And although they are mainly secondary characters, the impressive voice acting of Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Lena Headley (Cersei Lannister) and Natalie Dormer (Margery Tyrell) give this game an authentic Game of Thrones feel while allowing it to take on a life of its own.

I would like to ask the writer of this article a question. If Sean is so bad at doing the voice overs for video
games than why is he getting so many NEW JOBS in this field ????  Like KHOLAT ??? How about Papa Sangre ??
I LOVED listening to Sean's voice with my eye's closed that was AMAZING !! Also it made a lot of money !! So
I think he (or she) should research this subject before they make such a DUMB statement !!

Never mind 'Winter is Coming', Christmas is coming early for us Brits in the form of all four seasons of "G.O.T." shown three episodes per night starting on Saturday - I'm mid-way through book 3 (Danaerys is negotiating for the Unsullied, the Kingslayer and Brienne have just be captured and the Red Wedding awaits) but I don't mind watching it all again, in fact it will be a joy - I must have been a good girl this year - first time for everything!  And I'm particularly looking forward to the first few episodes of S1 - purely as it's been so long since I saw them of course! *grins*  I should prob. take that out as I'm sure lying gets you put on Santa's naughty list and I wouldn't want to miss my Ned fix - not got all seasons on DVD to fall back on or anything!

You win or you IMAX: ‘Game of Thrones’ coming to movie theatres

Quote
Winter is coming to the biggest screen. Episodes of “Game of Thrones” are to be screened at US IMAX theatres at the end of this month as a prelude to the smash hit fantasy show’s fifth season.

US cable channel HBO has formed an alliance with IMAX to show two episodes of the show along with a trailer for the new season in 150 theatres across the US. Screenings will last for a week, from 23 to 29 January. Apparently it’s the first TV show to be shown in the IMAX format.

Sean Bean has a sweet tooth and on days of shooting close up scenes he would have a pile of sweet wrappers at his feet, (he shared his sweets with Maisie) …

The kids all loved watching the older actors and tried really hard to learn from them. Especially Sean Bean.

Now this is exactly why I am trying to read everything; to get a real sense of him.  The sharing of his sweets had me in a puddle as generosity of spirit is something I really like in a person.  Given that he has daughters and knows how that works, plus (I think) Maisie was a first time actress and he would know things might be difficult for her so that kind of bonding would help with the scenes but even so ... he shares his sweets!!!!!!  :snoopy:

I love that!  I think it is true that people like in someone else what they like in themselves and that particular trait is definitely an important quality for me.  My best friend is generous with money - because she has lots and it doesn't mean much to her, and she is not generous of spirit so it means even less.  I'm not complaining, I totally understand and we have been best friends, despite our geographical distance, for twenty-five years so I don't hold it against her, it just surprises me sometimes.

I had been eyeing a Clarisonic on QVC for a while.  They had a Today's Special Value offer and I decided to get one, and loved it.  I sent her an e-mail about how fab it was and explained about the QVC 30-day money back policy so she didn't have to keep it if she didn't like it, went on to the American QVC website to find the product link there and a link to the latest sales video they had, plus I sent her a link to the American Clarisonic site with all the limited edition models and more colours - everything she could want - and what did she say?  "Oh, I've had one for ages, I should get it out and use it" - oh goody - not a single thought to share the info. had entered her head, likewise a Kindle, and Bose noise cancelling headphones as she likes to work when she flies and the noise is not really conducive to that so I thought ...  I say I am used to her but, to be honest, those things actually still smart a bit.  Oh well, she is who she is but ... HE SHARES HIS SWEETS!  Depends what they are, of course, but I don't think I'd necessarily share all of mine, just sayin'!

And then there's this:-

Quote
Have you been missing your former on-screen husband, Sean Bean?

Yes, he’s a lovely presence to have around…

 What was it like working with him?
 
Lovely; he’s an extremely professional person to be with on set – quiet and hard working with a great sense of humour.

All in all, he really does sound absolutely yummy!

He has a particular fondness for Wine Gums, followed by chocolate, but basically, anything sweet will do.

Given the amount I eat, I think I might be predominantly made up of chocolate!  Basically, I could live quite happily on tea, bacon sarnies and chocolate so he'd have to fight me for it!
