We’ve come a long way from Game of Thrones keeping battles offscreen, but Season 8 is going all out. New set reports indicate the HBO drama more than doubled its shooting time for fan-favorites like “Battle of the Bastards,” and is only getting started.
Most of us are content to wait for Game of Thrones Blu-rays to enjoy actors’ commentary, but – if you’re Brad Pitt and have the cash – you go for the real thing. The actor reportedly bid upwards of $120,000 to watch an episode of the HBO fantasy drama with none other than the Khaleesi herself.
If there’s one thing we agree on after seven Game of Thrones seasons, it’s that dragons remain as lifelike and awe-inspiring as ever.

We may not have any Game of Thrones to look forward to in 2018, but HBO has plenty of other wares. See for yourself, as a new 2018 promo for the network brings us fresh Westworld Season 2 footage, a first look at Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects miniseries, Fahrenheit 451 and much more.
