When are we going to get a full-length trailer for Game of Thrones’ final six episodes? I suspect we’ll get the trailer when A) they’ve completely all the postproduction CGI (ICE DRAGONS) and B) when we actually have an air date confirmed. Can you believe we still don’t have an air date yet? UGH. Anyway, during the Golden Globes, HBO dropped this trailer for all of their new shows/movies, and it included new footage from GoT: Sansa coldly welcoming the Mother of Dragons to Winterfell.
I’m sure there will be drama, and I can’t wait for Jon Snow to see Bran at Winterfell and for Bran to be like “Bee Tee Doubs, you know that Prince Rhaegar Targaryen was your daddy and you’re actually banging your aunt, right??” Maybe that’s why Sansa is wearing such a sourpuss too. I don’t know! I’m just ready to end this and find out what happened, and then curl into a ball and cry. Speaking of, the head honcho at HBO has seen ALL SIX EPISODES.
HBO chief Richard Plepler was in possession of the best cocktail party gossip of all on Sunday night at the cabler’s post-Golden Globes bash. But he wasn’t sharing — much. As Plepler held court in the main dining room, staying away from the light rain that fell in the outside area (the Hilton pool was covered for the occasion), he let it be known that he has seen rough cuts of all six episodes of the final season of “Game of Thrones.”
“It’s a spectacle. The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I’m watching a movie,’“ Plepler told Variety. Of showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Plepler enthused: “They knew the bar was high. They’ve exceeded the bar. I’ve watched them twice without any CGI and I’m in awe. Everybody’s in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.”
If I spend six Sundays over the summer watching 90-100 minute GoT movies, I will actually be pretty happy with that. It will probably be the highlight of my summer. Be honest, you know everything will completely shut down when the final episodes begin to air. YAY.
