What’s this about a Game of Thrones movie?!?! OK, I admit, that image has nothing to do with Game of Thrones other than it features the stunning Natalie Dormer, aka Margaery Tyrell, from her GQ shoot. So I don’t feel that bad about that. I do feel bad that it’s not really a movie either….
For those of you jonesing for your GoT fix – Winter IS coming…to IMAX on January 23. It’ll only be for a week and it’s not original content, sorry. It will be the last two action-packed episodes of season 4, “The Watchers on the Wall” and “The Children”. AND…there will be an exclusive trailer for Season 5.
In a first for IMAX and TV history, both episodes have been reformatted for the IMAX screen, which will be awesome.
