Game of Thrones

George R.R. Martin Hopes For a Future ‘Game of Thrones’ Movie

georgerrmartinCould Game of Thrones be seen on the big screen one day? George R.R. Martin has high hopes to end this adaptation after seven or eight seasons on HBO with a movie.

According to Screen Daily, the author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series revealed this idea during an appearance at the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival. Some speculate that all the work that goes into producing a movie would allow Martin more time to write the sixth and seventh installments of his beloved book series. Others feel that whatever ending Martin intends to pen requires a full movie to capture.

Here’s more from MTV.com: “As Ned Stark so famously warned, winter is coming; we know the White Walkers exist in numbers beyond the Wall, and we know Dany’s dragons are only getting bigger and bigger. It’s only a matter of time before all these forces come to a head, and perhaps a feature film is the only way to do justice to the massive ideas percolating in Martin’s mind.”

Australian Ad Agency Launches a Line of ‘Game of Thrones’ Wines

Common Ventures, an Australian-based ad agency, has been working on a line of Game of Thrones-themed wines.

According to the company website, “The Wines of Westeros” are not officially affiliated with the popular HBO adaptation; the executives launched this “side project” because they love the show. Fans can enjoy twelve different varietals; each one represents different “houses” found in the A Song of Ice and Fire book series including the Tyrells, the Lannisters, and the Starks.

In an interview with PSFK, founder Jane Burhop explained that “the reds are all associated with the houses that are head strong and robust. The whites on the other hand are more cunning, perceptive and mysterious.” The Greyjoy bottle contains a sauvignon blanc while the Baratheon bottle showcases a pinot noir.
