'Game of Thrones' season 4 main poster unveiled -- it's super threatening!

Don’t hurt us Game of Thrones! HBO’s fantasy hit has released its main key-art marketing poster. It’s a rather more, um, active image than last year’s rather subdued graphic, which some fans criticized (it showed the shadow of a flying dragon). This poster definitely gets your attention.

The release comes on the heels of HBO releasing individual character posters emblazoned with the expression “valar morghulis” — which means “all men must die” in High Valyrian. With this poster, you won’t need your High Valyrian-to-English translation app to understand the message. It promises tears, heartache and a possible raven attack (and also could be seen as a nod to George R.R. Martin’s titles for the third and fourth book in his series — A Storm of Swords and A Feast For Crows).

Here’s the poster and below is a poll so you can tell us what you think: READ FULL STORY

New 'Game of Thrones' trailer: Everyone swears vengeance on everyone -- VIDEO

HBO played a new trailer for season 4 of Game of Thrones last night, and it is a feast for the eyes. Pyramids! Dragons! Jaime Lannister with short hair! Pretty much everybody is swearing some kind of blood vengeance against somebody else. There’s a quick shot of new character Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), who gets the best line: “The Lannisters aren’t the only ones who pay their debts.” There’s also a quick peek at a new character: If you read the books, you’ll be all like “Whoaaaaaaa!” and if not, you’ll be all like “Bwaaaaaah?” Also, swords. All in all, looks like a quiet and uneventful season of television. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

'South Park' to parody angry 'Game of Thrones' fans in 'A Song of A- and Fire' -- VIDEO

Hell hath no fury like a fanboy scorned. No stranger to parodying fanboy culture, South Park takes on Game of Thrones “fans” in its latest episode, “A Song of A– and Fire.” A play off of Martin’s book series name A Song of Ice and Fire, the episode features the continuation of the kids’ “console wars” and an army of White Walkers soulless shoppers await the start of Black Friday sales.

In a clip from the episode (below), Butters and Scott arrive at George R. R. Martin’s New Mexico home demanding to know “what happens when the dragons show up,” even though they insist they’re not fans.

'Game of Thrones' casts Styr in season 4 -- EXCLUSIVE

Yuri-Kolokolnikov.jpg

But wait, there’s more!

Just when you thought HBO’s Game of Thrones had finished announcing its season 4 cast, there is one more role left: Styr, the Magnar of Thenn.

He will be played by Russian actor Yuri Kolokolnikov. You’ve probably seen him in V tvoikh glazakh and Schastlivyy konets. Or perhaps Obrechyonnye na voynu? Okay, so Kolokolnikov may not be well known in the States. But he’s a longtime actor in his homeland, having appeared in more than a couple dozen features.

As for his character, Styr leads the Thenn, the most warlike tribe from beyond the Wall. At the end of the third season, the tribes are readying to potentially invade Westeros under the leadership of Mance Rayder (Ciarán Hinds) while spy-among-the-Wildlings Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was returned injured to Castle Black with news of their movements.

There was some previous online speculation that actor Joseph Gatt was playing Styr. All I can say about that is: Nope.

The fantasy hit returns next spring. Previous Thrones season 4 news: Dany’s Meereen contact cast, season 4 directors chosen, Sigur Ros cast, ‘Rome’ actress cast, ‘Sherlock’ actor cast, Oberyn the Red Viper cast.

'Game of Thrones' casts Dany's Meereen contact -- EXCLUSIVE

One final piece of Game of Thrones season 4 casting has fallen into place: The key role of Hizdahr zo Loraq has been filled by young British actor Joel Fry (10,000 BC).

Hizdahr is described as the “young scion of an ancient Meereenese family who crosses paths with Daenerys Targaryen.”

Meereen the largest of the three great Slaver Cities of Slaver’s Bay. The others are Astapor (where Dany acquired her slave army) and Yunkai (which Dany’s army liberated in the season 3 finale). Hizdahr is introduced in George R.R. Martin’s fifth “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel A Dance with Dragons. READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones' casts Sigur Ros in season 4 -- EXCLUSIVE

In what’s become a Game of Thrones tradition, the HBO fantasy hit has teamed with an acclaimed indie band for the upcoming season.

Thrones has landed Icelandic art-pop sensation Sigur Rós to appear in season four. Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason are currently shooting an appearance on the Thrones set in Croatia. What will the band mates do? Will they play a song? Might a bowed guitar be involved?

We’re sworn to secrecy on the nature of the appearance. But they are musicians, so … let the speculation begin! READ FULL STORY

'The Writers Room': 'Game of Thrones' EPs talk violence and Ned's execution -- VIDEO

writers-room-02.jpg

HBO’s Game of Thrones is set in the often-violent fantasy world created by George R. R. Martin, who famously enjoys killing off your favorite characters in the most terrifying ways possible. On tonight’s episode of Entertainment Weekly and the Sundance Channel’s behind-the-scenes series The Writer’s Room, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (who write pretty much every episode) talk about modulating the show’s violence to avoid making it unintentionally funny. “Something that might work in Evil Dead 2 isn’t going to work in a show with this tone,” explains Benioff. (So don’t expect to see Jon Snow saw his own arm off anytime soon.) Watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY
