Game of Throes: A Day In the Life

Last night HBO premiered their special behind-the-secnes look at Game of Thrones season 5.  This special took us in and showed us a behind-the-scenes look at a single day with the production teams.  It spanned three countries worth: Spain, Northern Ireland, and Croatia. 

Now if you happened to miss it last night, don't worry!  HBO has posted the special online for everyone to watch.  So enjoy this Game of Thrones special, taking a look at what its like to work on the fifth season.

Exciting Pictures from Daznak's Pit

Some exciting new pictures, and a short video, have surfaced from Daznak's Pit.  Now as you may have guessed these two fall into the heavy spoiler section below the cut.

I unfortunately can't say to much about them above the break.  However it should be noted, these pictures don't show us anything especially ground breaking.  Everything these pictures show was basically covered in an older post I wrote - which also had it's contents fall under a heavy spoiler break.

So if you have read through A Dance with Dragons continue reading.  Otherwise I'd strongly advice you not to.

Daznak's Pit Pictures

Daznak's Pit Pictures

New pictures have surfaced showing the filming that is currently underway in Osuna, Spain for the fifth season of Game of Thrones.  Pictured above is the infamous bull ring which will be used to represent Daznak's Pit in Meereen.

With these new pictures I'm a bit hesitant to say anything else, just for spoiler reasons.  So for the real meat of this post you'll have to go below the break.  But be warned this post will be very spoiler heavy if you have not read through A Dance with Dragons...and even if you have read the books this could still be spoilery.  The below pictures show something that I don't think any book reader would've expected to see this soon in the show - as it's something we haven't even seen in the books yet.

What We Saw In Dubrovnik

What We Saw In Dubrovnik

Filming in the city of Dubrovnik has finally come to an end.  In this post we will be exploring a few of the most notable things that were captured on the set of Game of Thrones - of course no spoilers until after the break. The first notable sighting to mention is the faith militant.  In season 5 we will being seeing a much more important role from the side of the faith - more specifically that of the faith of the Seven.  These images give us a good idea of what they'll be looking like.  Its very easy to notice the seven pointed start on the foreheads of these men.  It is unclear as of now if this will be the Poor Fellows or the Warrior's Sons, of if the show will even include both groups.  As of it now it would appear only one of the groups will make it into the show - possibly a combination of two, as the show has done will other similar groups in previous seasons.

This is a long post.  And as you might have guessed, a long post will of course contain some spoilers, but as always there's a warning.  So keep your eyes out for that, and enjoy this collection of images!
