Wow, delayed a full month from when it was first expected to be released. If it's 8 episodes, I think it will end the weekend before the NFL starts.

There is a leaked season 7 trailer out and it is impressive.

It's a fan made trailer, but extremely well done.

Are the scenes shown in the trailer real or fan created?

Thanks, I assume the first HBO trailer will be out sometime in April or May?

Hey, hundreds of thousands of people spent 30-60 minutes watching a block of ice being melted by fire on Facebook. Starting a thread a few months early doesn't seem that crazy.

Looking forward to this. Kind of wish they would put out a 60 minute refresher on the previous season. It's been so long that I don't remember all the details.

This is old but it's still one of my most favorite things ever. Samuel L Jackson breaking down GoT in a way only he can.

Two and a half months away. Not sure I am as excited about this upcoming season as some in the past. I imagine as the season approaches, it will get the buzz that it usually does. It will be different having a Summer start.

Knowing that it's not the end but second to the end plays with my mind a bit. Why get excited when it's not going to mean as much as the following and that we'll have to wait a whole year to finish the darn thing (which we know in our hearts, won't be finished because $$$).

Announcing it the second to the last season took the energy but it will build as it's time for the first episode (to be leaked).

Agree. It has always seemed like a great "winter" show. I do not watch much TV in summer anyway due to simply constantly being outside. Perhaps this is the season I let ride and then binge watch come late fall.

Game of Thrones forever: HBO developing 4 different spinoffs

Quote:
HBO is doubling down — no, quadrupling down — on its epic quest to replace Game of Thrones.

The pay TV network is determined to find a way to continue the most popular series in the company’s history and has taken the highly unusual step of developing four different ideas from different writers. The move represents a potentially massive expansion of the popular fantasy universe created by author George R.R. Martin. If greenlit, the eventual show or shows would also mark the first time HBO has ever made a follow-up series to one of its hits.

Most of the assigned writers have experience writing major theatrical films, and Martin is personally involved in two of the projects. The show ideas are from Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island, Fox’s Minority Report); Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class) along with Martin; Brian Helgeland (A Knight’s Tale, L.A. Confidential); and Carly Wray (Mad Men) with Martin.

Solid!

Now I have to go read the reviews of the trailer. The easter eggs, the bet you didn't notice, notices....

The sword catching fire was slick as were the dragons heading to I presume, Dragon Stone.

I'd have gone a bit over the top and finished it with White Walker snickering and saying, "dat all you got?"

They need to do a better job with leaks. The entire season is broken down on tons of websites because of script leaks

In today's world leaks are bound to happen. I just choose not to read them.

An easy way to kill interest in something is to over-saturate the market with it. If they're planning 4, I hope they only develop 1 at a time.

Entire scripts from every episode though? That's not common/bound to happen.

There is a website that offers entire scripts for TWD since season 2 or 3 (?). I have buddies that like to read ahead. I myself do not. To each his own.

Like Fear The Walking Dead? Or having the show last long past its end date to simply bleed every once of profit you can?

That is what I loved about Breaking Bad. Vince Gilligan had an ending and he would not budge. Creating a spin-off at that point (Better Call Saul) works because people are hungry for more.

FTWD's problem is that it is utter garbage in nearly every aspect, not over saturation.

I'd probably compare it more to The Hobbit, which should have been one movie but was 3

Can't wait for Sunday. Avoided Spoilers like the plague, which was not easy to do.

I was hoping Martin would be finished with Winds of Winter by now. Pretty disappointed

I'm wondering what story lines would be involved in a spin off.
