Viral video ties in 'GoT' soundbites to the lyrics of Gloria Gaynor classic.
'Game Of Thrones' fans have gotten to experience a wonderful taste of irony with a viral video featuring the cast 'singing' along to Gloria Gaynor's 1978 hit 'I Will Survive'. It must've have taken some 'GoT' lover a long time to put together but it's so worth it.

It's nearly upon us!
The 'Game Of Thrones' season 6 premiere took place at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last night (April 10th 2016) and, as expected, arrivals were bombarded with questions about whether or not Jon Snow was really dead.

Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen

With the stunning and shocking season finale for 'Game Of Thrones' Season Five having taking audiences by storm, it's time to take a look back over the season and discuss what we thought were the best moments from one of the best rated seasons of one most critically acclaimed shows of all time.

Cersei's Arrest: Lena Headey has put in a great performance from the start, making the incestuous, alcoholic and power-hungry Cersei Lannister both a compelling and hated character since the show's first episode. That said, seeing her chickens coming home to roost when Jonathan Pryce's High Sparrow took the power she had given him, and threw her in prison for her various crimes.

Things are really getting serious now.
Ok, I didn’t want to do this, but we have to. Let’s talk Game of Thrones. Particularly after last week’s awful, awful, bad thing that the writers put in unnecessarily, because why not have another rape scene disempowering a central character, in a show that’s supposedly all about powerful women. Oh yeah, if you haven’t figured it out already, SPOILERS. All of the spoilers.

So, a week after we had to watch the gruesome, cringe-inducing scene between Ramsay and Sansa, we find lady Stark (soon to be Bolton) in even more dire straits, if that’s even possible. Weeks after she was promised to Ramsay – in an attempt by herself and Littlefinger to win back some power and avenge her family – we find Sansa locked in her room when Reek brings her food. Bruises cover her arms. She begs the man who was once Theon to help her, makes him promise to light a candle in the tower so that someone will come to save her.

'Game of Thrones' is infamous for killing off its characters, so without paying attention to the books (as the show seems to be doing) we looked at who we think is destined to go the way of dodo.
Prince Doran - We've only seen Prince Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig) in one episode so far, he's already made a strong impression on everyone. The elder brother of fan favourite Oberyn, who came to a horribly messy end in the last season, Prince Doran is trying his best to keep the peace in Dorne, and stop his people from seeking revenge against the Lannisters. It stands to reason, however, that his death would make give them a great reason to rise up and start a war.

Brienne/Podrick - Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Podrick (Daniel Portman) have been giving us a good dose of the "two buddies traveling", following in the footsteps of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage ) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn), and Arya (Maisie Williams) and the Hound (Rory McCann). The problem is, that each of those has come to a rather disastrous ending at some point, and the death of Brienne or Podrick seems likely - especially with what they seem to be getting themselves into.
Will Holloway is faced with not only the most critical event of his career as assistant to the head of counter-terrorism at MI5 Harry Pearce, but also what has been dubbed the biggest failure by the UK intelligence agency in history when a known terrorist by the name of Adem Qasim escapes from their clutches. Not only that, but Harry's disappearance soon follows, leaving behind few clues apart from a series of encrypted phonecalls. Other members of MI5 have worries of a much broader scale on their minds, that Qasim might be in the process of brainwashing their leader while the whole of London is facing enormous immediate threat. When he stumbles across a global conspiracy, however, Holloway begins to realise that this horror is broader than any of them could ever have imagined.

A classic British memoir gets the full costume drama treatment with this beautifully crafted World War I drama, although it never quite transcends the "beloved book" tone, remaining so worthy that it only rarely springs to life. The acting is sharp, as is the filmmaking, so it's frustrating that there's so little in the film that resonates with present-day audiences. And as the story sinks into a murky gloom, it's difficult for audiences to stay engaged.
Based on Vera Brittain's iconic memoir, the story opens in 1914, as Vera (Alicia Vikander) begs her parents (Emily Watson and Dominic West) to let her sit entrance exams at Oxford, which simply isn't the done thing for a proper young woman. She also has to convince them to let her brother Edward (Taron Egerton) sign up for military service in response to the conflict breaking out in Europe. But Vera is shocked when her sweetheart Roland (Kit Harington) also decides to enlist along with two close friends (Colin Morgan and Jonathan Bailey). Suddenly the war seems far too close to home for her. So she's provoked to leave university and volunteer as a nurse, serving in both England and France while the war rages around her.
The film's opening section contains a beautiful spark of hopefulness as these young people face the possibilities ahead of them, revelling in their education and then deciding to do their duty for their country. The rising-star cast packs the characters with cheeky humour, high energy and, yes, suitably repressed Britishness. But of course the realities of WWI change everything. Vikander handles this mood-swing very nicely, conveying Vera's resilience as she is bombarded with intense emotions. Her chemistry with Harington is strong, packed with passion. And the surrounding cast is terrific, even if most of the roles are relatively slight. The stand-outs are Richardson as a prickly Oxford professor and Atwell as a feisty fellow nurse.

Has the fate of Jon Snow been sealed by Kit Harington’s locks?
There are many reasons to tune into HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’, the gripping storylines, the epic battle scenes and of course, Jon Snow’s hair. Yes Kit Harington’s curly locks are a vital part of ‘Game of Thrones’, so much so that they have their own contract with HBO. So imagine the shock fans of the series felt when Harington appeared at the premiere of his new film, Testament of Youth on Monday night, sporting slightly shorter hair.
Kit Harrington's new hair

The epic ‘Game of Thrones’ will become the first TV series to be shown at IMAX theatres.
If you thought ‘Game of Thrones’ couldn't get any bigger or better then think again as HBO and IMAX have just struck a deal to bring the series to selected IMAX theatres. For one week only, beginning on January 23rd, 150 US theatres will screen the final two episodes of the series' fourth season, as well as an exclusive season 5 trailer.

Her life becomes even more promising when she falls for her brother's best friend Roland Leighton. However, the war is becoming ever closer and he is forced to abandon his own prestigious studies in favour of the frontline. Filled with grief over Roland's life-threatening circumstances, she decides to make the decision of a lifetime and leave her dreams behind. Instead, she decides to volunteer as a nurse for the sea of wounded troops that are yet to pour back into the country. Even as all that she holds dear are quickly annihilated by the vicious First World War, her determination keeps her focused on making the best of such horrors.
