I’m someone who really loves reading and often get asked for recommendations. One book that I consistently suggest to readers is Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. Of course, people don’t often know a series by its name and ask “what is that?” This is usually where I lose them as I tell them the first book is called The Golden Compass (or Northern Lights if … Continue reading Why You Shouldn’t Be Sleeping On BBC’s Adaptation of ‘His Dark Materials’ – ScreenHub Entertainment
Bob Woodward’s tell-all book Fear, which documents the first year and a half of the current Presidential administration in the United States, has been selling like hot cakes. Unsurprisingly, the reply from President Trump has been that the novel is largely a work of fiction and ultimately, “fake news”. With his battle against the media reaching new heights, we thought this was a good time to … Continue reading Why HBO Should Bring Back ‘The Newsroom’ In 2019 – ScreenHub Entertainment
With the recent announcements of the 5 Game of Thrones prequels that are in development, there has been a lot of speculation as to what they could be.

HBO’s Game of Thrones is without a doubt, the most popular show on television. In fact, it’s one of the most popular shows in television history. It’s full of layered characters with complex backstories, intricate narratives and speculator action that is willing to kill off anyone it sees fit. Oh – and there’s also massive dragons. It’s a land full of magic and wonder; despite the grounded approach to politics and character interactions, but it’s those latter points that draw from the real world. Game of Thrones, and the book series A Song of Ice and Fire may be fictional, but they draw heavy inspiration from some real-world events. So as we await the first trailer for season 8, tune into this in-depth look at the history behind the franchise!

While Game Of Thrones comes to an end next year with season 8, five prequels have been announced to be in production but only one greenlit so far (The Long Night). Game of Thrones has easily become the most popular show of the decade and will arguably surpass J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth in the coming years. I think it’s fair to say that we want to see more of the Game of Thrones world following the end of the show and I think delving into its rich lore and history are just the way to do this. In this post, I will be breaking down what the 4 unconfirmed prequel shows could be and what else could be done with the universe.
News just broke out that HBO has officially ordered a Game of Thrones prequel pilot episode set thousands of years before the events of the main series and books. The fantasy epic hasn’t even come to a conclusion yet, with the final eight season due sometime in 2019, but HBO knows a good thing when they see it and want to ensure subscriptions stay up after the show is complete. So naturally, they want to continue to explore the history of Westeros and all it’s complicated families.
By Sebastian Sheath Early last year, the rumour of an HBO Watchmen show began but no more news came for another six months. I had assumed that the idea had not gone any further until 6 months ago when Damon Lindelof started getting active on Instagram. Now, the news is coming out on a monthly basis as we gradually find out more about the show. In this … Continue reading Character Descriptions Revealed: Here’s Everything We Know About HBO’s Watchmen So Far – ScreenHub Entertainment

Over the past decade, intellectual science fiction films have been few and far between. The last decade has seen some noteworthy attempts, from Inception in 2010, to Looper and Her in 2013 and 14, and Ex Machina and Arrival shortly after. In the last year, however, Blade Runner 2049, directed by Arrival Director Denis Villeneuve, underperformed at the box office, leading many Hollywood executives to believe that more challenging … Continue reading Are Netflix And HBO Providing A Home For Intellectual Science Fiction? – ScreenHub Entertainment
