Kit Harington says not knowing how ‘Game of Thrones’ will end is amazing
Ready to see Kit Harington play a different kind of unlikely hero? Only this time, there are no dragons, dire wolves, or White Walkers in sight.
The “Game of Thrones” star has a key role in “Brimstone,” the bleak, violent and uncompromising Western from Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven. The film slowly, over the course of four in-film “chapters,” unveils the grim circumstances in which a young, mute frontier midwife and mother (Dakota Fanning) finds herself the target of an obsessed and unrelenting fire-and-brimstone preacher (Guy Pearce). Harington plays Samuel, a wounded cowboy running from trouble, who receives shelter from the 14-year-old Liz (Emilia Jones) and leaves a lasting mark on the girl as her life descends into horror.
Once again, Harington treads into territory that unflinchingly explores violence, brutality, and their aftereffects, much like the HBO fantasy series he’s best known for. After wrapping filming on the upcoming seventh season, he admits that he’s still marveling on how the show has moved forward so strongly, without a new volume in the epic A Song of Ice and Fire” series to shape it.
Moviefone: “Brimstone” is quite an amazing piece of filmmaking, and I imagine it was a very easy “yes” for you to get involved. But what were the specific motivators for you? What were the things you saw in the character and in the story that really got you excited creatively?
Kit Harington: I’ll be honest: I read the script a while before I joined it. Then, as sometimes happens, the role went to someone else. It went to Robert Pattinson. I kind of put it to bed in my head. Then whatever happened happened, and I came aboard very late.
I think first and foremost, I really wanted this role from the get-go because the script was so strong. It was so interesting. It was so surreal. It wasn’t really specific to any kind of genre.
Earlier today HBO aired a long drawn out reveal of the seventh season air date teasing the meeting of ice and fire. It will return to our screens on 16.07.17 and a day later in the UK on 17.07.17 on Sky Atlantic. Sky have also confirmed that they again will be screening it simultaneously with America at 2am and again at the usual time of 9pm. 4 months, 9 days to go!
HBO have released the first official poster for the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones. By the looks of things like many fanmade posters have predicted, it could literally be a Song of Ice and Fire. Hopefully this means the that the trailer or some teaser clips won’t be far behind. #TheEndBegins #ReadyTheRealm!
Due to filming currently taking place outside, the internet is dark and full of spoilers and I for one do not want to be one of the sites that unintentionally spoils those who wish to remain completely spoiler free. I have now watermarked the thumbnails of those on set images that contain spoilers so the albums are safe to view for everyone. An example of what they look like can be seen below thanks to my friend Kaci who took the time to design it for me. Should you wish to see the bigger image (that will be watermark free) it will be your choice whether to proceed and view. I hope I will be doing the best thing by all visitors of the site.
Several sets of images from the production of S7 have been added to the gallery and they do include potential spoilers so view them at your own discretion. Kit can be seen filming alongside Liam Cunningham (and other cast members who shall remain anonymous for those who wish to stay spoiler free) in several locations in Spain
For those of you who are active on social media please beware that there have been huge leaks which I am told contain details of specific episode content. Whether they are true or not is another matter but if you don’t wish to be spoiled just a warning to be careful on which links you access
Summer is coming. HBO is officially confirming some major changes for Game of Thrones.
Season 7 of the fantasy sensation will not return until summer 2017 – pushing back from the show’s usual strategy of premiering each edition of the series in the spring (typically April).
Also, the network is confirming for the first time that next edition will consist of seven episodes (a pull back from the show’s usual 10 hours). Plus, HBO added that the next season will be shot in Northern Ireland, Spain, and Iceland.
The producers have previously told EW they wanted to cap the hit series at 73 hours, with seven episodes next year, and six in an eighth-and-final season. (“We’ve known for several years now how many hours, roughly, we want it to go, it hasn’t changed,” Benioff said.) HBO has not yet confirmed anything about season 8, however, so that part of their plan is not yet official.
Thrones has managed to ratchet up its production values with each season, and having fewer episodes will likely allow more time for the team to polish every hour of the show. The producers have tapped directors Alan Taylor, Jeremy Podeswa, Mark Mylod, and Matt Shakman for next season.
