Game Of Thrones News: Season 5 IMAX Trailer Leaked Online, ‘Winds Of Winter’ Won’t Be Published In 2015

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 1.50.58 PM

The exclusive IMAX trailer for Game of Thrones season five leaked online today after the trailer premiered before IMAX screenings of the last two episodes of season four in select theaters around the nation. The leaked footage was shot on a filmgoer’s camera or phone; although the quality isn’t perfect, the audio is quite clear and the video quality is good enough to make out particular scenes and characters’ faces.

Season five primarily adapts George R.R. Martin’s fourth novel in the series, A Feast For Crows, and parts of his fifth and most recent novel, A Dance With Dragons. The publisher behind Martin’s sixth entry in the saga, The Winds of Winter, issued a statement today saying that the eagerly awaited sixty entry will likely not be published this year. However, the publisher did note that three of Martin’s previous novellas set in the world of Game of Thrones is set to release in a complete anthology in October, expanding upon past events in the world of Westeros and providing new insights on what is to come in the future of the series.

Luckily, the show continues to plug on for eager fans, and the trailer for season five doesn't disappoint. Watch Tyrion scheme with Varys the Spider, dragons roar and empires crumble (quite literally), before the video gets taken down, AFTER THE JUMP...

'Game of Thrones' Actress Natalie Dormer Wants More Male Nudity on the Show


In an interview with The Daily Beast, Natalie Dormer, who plays Queen Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones, was asked to share her thoughts on the hit HBO show's "boob mandate" and whether she thinks upcoming seasons could use more symmetry in the dick department. 

DormerSaid Dormer:

Well, during the first season Alfie, Richard, and several of the men got naked—although not all the way. I suppose it’s just the rules of broadcast television, isn’t it? I think Thrones has been better than your average show with the equality, but they could definitely ramp it up! Absolutely.

The paltry amount of male nudity on the show has been an ongoing sticking point for GoT fans and even the actors themselves. Earlier this year Sibel Kekilli (Shae), Carice van Houten (Mellisandre) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) all joined the chorus of voices calling for more male nudity. Actor Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell), meanwhile, not only wants more male nudity, but more gay sex on the show.   

You can catch Dormer in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 in theaters now. 

And if you missed the "Gay Men of the Night's Watch" video earlier this year that mashed together some of the show's more homoerotic moments, you can check that out AFTER THE JUMP...

George R.R. Martin Explains 'Game of Thrones' Lack of Gay Sex Scenes: VIDEO

George R.R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice And Fire, the series that inspired Game of Thrones, has opened up about why the popular television series has been somewhat more explicit in its depictions of gay and bisexual sex compared to the books.

5939185026_f6dbdfc215_zUnlike the television show, which jumps between scenes, settings, and perspectives in typical TV fashion, Martin writes each chapter of the series from the viewpoint of only one character, giving the chacters an interior voice that is more nuanced because of its limitations.

Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey, for example is commonly depicted in the HBO series as a scheming, shrewd lush foiled by the meddling men around her. The same can be said of her characterization in the books, but seeing the world of Westeros through her eyes and being able to read her thoughs out verbatim casts the queen regent in a different light.

“Frankly, it is the way I prefer to write fiction because that is the way all of us experience life,” The author elaborated during a panel at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. “A television show doesn’t have those limitations.”

Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony), younger brother to Stannis (Stephen Dillane), was portrayed as explicitly gay and somewhat openly in love with Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones), a member of his kingsguard in previous seasons of Game of Thrones despite their relationship being merely hinted at in the novels.

Martin went on to say that he’s very well aware of the--primarily female--demand for more gay sex scenes in his literature. iif and when the descriptions became integral to the development of the plot, he added, he would consider writing them.

Gay Men Of The Night’s Watch: VIDEO


The folks over at “Game of Awkward” put together a re-edit of some of the more savory and suggestible male homosocial moments on Game of Thrones, paying particular attention to the relations between the men of the Night’s Watch (fear not, Peter Dinklage fans, Tyrion makes a cameo or two as well).

With an oath that requires its soldiers to take no wives and father no children, there hardly seems anything awkward about a little man on man mischief on the wall.
