Some characters might die a second time!
The Game of Thrones cast was nothing if not emotional while reading their final scripts, but it may not just have been over the end of an era.
According to Variety, HBO’s SVP of Drama Francesca Orsi said: “None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths.”
The final Game of Thrones table read brought the entire cast together to read the final six episodes in one sitting.
Orsi said this at a “Best of HBO” panel in Jerusalem, where she also said reaching the show’s ending was “a really powerful moment in our lives and our careers.”
At the same panel, she and network programming president Casey Bloys also talked about those spinoffs, laughing at the idea of $50 million per season (Thrones‘ record is in the neighborhood of $15 million per episode).
“[That] would never fly for what we are trying to do. We are going big,” Orsi said.
Game of Thrones returns in 2019.
Everything coming to Amazon Prime Video in August 2019
“Summer may be coming to an end, but Prime Video is doing its best to keep the season of adventure going.
From gigantic journeys like Godzilla (2014) to smaller sagas like A Simple Favor, the streaming service is offering up a number of choice movies this August. Of course, they’re saving the most sought-after flicks for rent or purchase.
Throughout the month, Avengers: Endgame, The Souvenir, and Pokémon Detective Pikachu – two of which made our mid-year best of 2019 films list, and the third of which is freakin’ Pikachu in a hat – all become available through Prime Video. If you missed them in theaters or need to enjoy them just one more time, now’s your chance!”

More than 30m people have watched Netflix’s Murder Mystery; why?
The critics might have hated it, but this Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler-starring Agatha Christie pastiche broke the record for Netflix’s biggest opening weekend
Despite the critics (mostly) hating it, we now know that 30.9m Netflix account-holders watched Murder Mystery in its first three days of release. To put that in context: if two people watched the movie on each account, and you imagine them all paying the average $9 price of a cinema ticket, it would give the film an opening weekend of $556m, the third-largest ever. That is by no means a perfect formula, but nevertheless highlights a staggering performance for an Agatha Christie parody that stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. How did that happen?
