For the first time in Game of Thrones history, fans are entering the series relatively blind. Now that the show has caught up to George R.R. Martin’s books, we’re set to enter new territory in Season 7, no longer aided by the foresight of book knowledge. Theorizing will be a bit harder this year, but that doesn’t mean we know a little as Jon Snow.
It’s almost impossible to watch Game of Thrones without going through a range of emotions. One minute you’re on the edge of your seat, heart rate through the roof, and the next you’re sobbing over a character’s death. The HBO series is filled with so much blood and backstabbing that it’s easy to focus on its goriest and most devastating moments. But what about the feel good ones? What about the times Game of Thrones made you cheer with glee, stand up and clap, or tear up with joy? Those are the ones we love most.
There’s a certain amount of irony to Spider-Man: Homecoming displacing Wonder Woman as the top-grossing superhero movie on the current box-office chart. As it turns out, Wonder Woman’s continuing success in theaters means that it has achieved something that no movie since the original Spider-Man has accomplished: Achieving a total domestic gross that is nearly four times its opening weekend numbers.
It’s that time of the year again when we begin to take stock of the best TV of the year and put our heads together to predict who will take home the gold come awards night. On Thursday, the TV Academy will announce their selections for the 2017 Emmy Awards. We already know the usual suspects will pop up, from shoo-in Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Modern Family and House of Cards, but what about the new series and the underdogs?
You know the Planet of the Apes series, including the newest film, War for the Planet of the Apes. But did you know that the original movie, based on a French science-fiction novel, was actually co-written by The Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling? It’s true, and while some of Serling’s draft was changed before the film was made, one big component survived: He was the one who suggested the twist ending involving the Statue of Liberty. (Of course he did, Rod Serling loved twist endings.) That’s just one of the facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
July 1 marks an important anniversary in the history of movies: The day the Motion Picture Association of America introduced the PG-13 rating. Prior to the PG-13, there was no rating for films that fell in the gray area between PG (movies where parental guidance was merely suggested) and R (movies that required adult supervision for admittance to the theater).
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving! is all about.
Bram Stoker is famous as the creator of Dracula in his 1897 novel. But did you know that Stoker also wrote a novel that became the basis for a movie about the Mummy? It’s true; Stoker’s The Jewel of Seven Stars, became the basis for the 1971 Hammer horror movie Blood From the Mummy’s Tomb. That’s just one of the spookily scarifying facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
The calendar may have four seasons, but Hollywood’s calendar only really has two at this point: summer and awards, and summer seems to last longer and longer ever year. Though the start of May has long been the unofficial kickoff of the S.M.S., 2017 has already seen a King Kong movie, a ghost in a shell, and the fate of Fast & Furious franchise. The change from April to May is something of a formality in 2017. Once the Oscars are over, the summer begins.
Everyone remembers E.T. and his famous lines like “Be good” and “E.T. phone home.” But did you know that the voice of E.T. was provided by at least 18 different people? It’s true; the majority of his lines were provided by Pat Welsh, an elderly smoker. But additional sounds and lines were provided by director Steven Spielberg, actress Debra Winger, and sound designer Ben Burtt’s sleeping wife when she had a cold. That’s just one of the extra-terrestrial facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
If you saw The Fate of the Furious over the weekend, you saw its fun opening race, set in Havana, Cuba. But did you know the eighth Fast & Furious was the first Hollywood movie in decades to shoot on the island? It’s true; and it’s just one of the facts featured in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
