The first glimpse of the prequel TV show to the award-winning Game of Thrones has been released by HBO. Introducing House of the Dragon.
House of the Dragon is based 300 years before the events of the now concluded TV series Game of Thrones. If you haven't already gathered it from the name, House of the Dragon will focus on the a time when House Targaryen ruled over Westeros. Daenerys Targaryen's ancestors Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Prince Daemon Targaryen, will be the show's centerpieces, Emma D'Arcy will play Rhaenyra, and Matt Smith will play Daemon (as seen above).
HBO has released a set of images showcasing some of the characters in the show. Actor Steve Toussaint will portray the Lord Corlys Velaryon, or "The Sea Snake". British actress Olivia Cooke will play Alice Hightower, and Rhys Ifans will play her father, Otto Hightower. House of the Dragon is scheduled to release at an undeclared date in 2022.

The Dogefather himself, or what the world knows as billionaire troll businessman Elon Musk, will be hosting Saturday Night Live tonight at 8:30 PT / 11:30PM ET -- but where can you watch it from anywhere in the world? Here's how.
I left the first paragraph but I had originally written a huge post about how to watch Saturday Night Live with Elon Musk hosting it with VPN recommendations and how to watch it in Australia, Canada, and the UK through various TV stations and online streaming services.
But then Elon Musk tweets out a link to a YouTube video, where NBC for the first time ever is making its stream of Saturday Night Live available to international users with an easy YouTube link. Yeah, it's that easy -- the stream goes live in 5 hours from now (at the time of writing) directly on YouTube to everyone around the world.
You might want to mark your calendars for May 8, 2021 -- as Tesla's own "Technoking of Tesla" will be hosting Saturday Night Live, alongside Miley Cyrus as the musical guest.
NBC announced the news on their Twitter account, with 3 x rocket emojis and some sticky notes that included the date (May 8), Elon Musk and Miley Cryus sticky notes. As for the announcement itself, it was made live around 24 hours after SpaceX launched its Crew Dragon capsule that took 4 astronauts to the International Space Station.
Elon Musk of course tweets about the fact that he's going to be hosting Saturday Night Live, tweeting that he can't wait to find out "how live" Saturday Night Live "really is". Oh Elon, me either man... me either. I'm sure he's going to drop some doozies, if the SpaceX and Tesla founder is wanting to test the limits of how "live" SNL really is... I'm sure he's going to.

Zack Snyder's Justice League has made its huge debut on HBO Max, with parent company AT&T enjoying a huge surge in users as they flocked in to watch the original vision of Justice League from Zack Snyder.
WarnerMedia's streaming platform saw an 8.9% surge in users launching the HBO Max mobile app, while the HBO Max app itself had downloads skyrocket by 68% during the week that Zack Snyder's Justice League debuted. The only source on this right now is Bloomberg, where writer John J. Edwards III is wrong about the theatrical release of Justice League being Zack Snyder's "original 2017 cut" but "completed by a different director".
The theatrical release of Justice League was not Snyder's "original 2017 cut", it was a hacked-together Frankenstein mess that had almost nothing to do with Snyder after Whedon's extensive re-writes and re-shoots. It wasn't simply "completed" by another director, but that director made it into nearly a completely different movie.
Hulu is preparing to release the brand new season of its new hit animated show Solar Opposites and to kick things off, we have a new trailer to enjoy.
Solar Opposites is created by Justin Roiland, the co-creator of Rick and Morty. If you enjoy Rick and Morty, then there is no doubt that you will enjoy Solar Opposites as both of the shows are quite similar in terms of comedy. In the above trailer, we can see Korvo with his family of aliens attempting to get off Earth in their spaceship.
Before the launch, Korvo makes some offensive jokes about the current state of Earth. At the end of the trailer, we are shown the release date for season 2 of Solar Opposites, which will premier on Hulu on March 26th. If you are interested in reading more about Solar Opposites, or if you want to check out some more trailers for the show, visit this link here.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is nearly here with an epic final trailer for the movie released, fully unleashing the hype engines. Check it out:
Snyder tweeted out the final trailer to Zack Snyder's Justice League with "The Time is Now. #ForAutumn", Autumn being his daughter that took her own life as he was finishing up Justice League. Warner Bros. removed him from the project as he needed time with his family and that didn't suit their schedule, they had Avengers director Joss Whedon step in and re-shoot Justice League into the theatrical mess it was.
It's a beautiful way to end this journey into the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League from the man himself, saying this is For Autumn. Many of the fans, myself included, have been with Zack throughout this entire journey. There have been large sums of money raised for suicide awareness because of it, with the Snyder family fully embracing the movement.
It was only a month ago that I was reporting Disney+ had breached 95 million subscribers, but now we're already at 100 million subscribers and the future is looking very pretty for Disney's huge streaming service.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek said in a press release: "The enormous success of Disney Plus ... has inspired us to be even more ambitious, and to significantly increase our investment in the development of high-quality content. In fact, we set a target of [more than] 100 new titles per year, and this includes Disney Animation, Disney Live Action, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic".
It should come as no surprise given the popularity of shows like The Mandalorian, the entire back catalogs of Star Wars, Pixar's entire library, the entire of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and a million-and-one other TV shows, movies, documentaries, sport and entertainment.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is still 10 days away and yet the movie "accidentally" debuted on HBO Max when users searched and tried to stream 'Tom & Jerry'.
Streaming Tom & Jerry on HBO Max surprised viewers with an early viewing of Zack Snyder's Justice League, but what happened? HBO Max parent company WarnerMedia explained in a statement: "Zack Snyder's Justice League was temporarily available on HBO Max and the error was addressed within minutes".
The movie was then made available in various sources across the internet, but it took many hours before Warner Bros. responded and in the end Twitter sent takedown notices on behalf of Warner Bros. to Twitter users who were sharing screenshots from the leaked Zack Snyder's Justice League movie.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is less than 10 days away if you can believe it, with Snyder and HBO Max dropping individual character teases with seconds of new footage in each trailer. Check out the official trailer to Zack Snyder's Justice League before that, and below I have the individual trailers and character posters.
The team have been slowly releasing character trailers leading into the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League on March 18 where it will debut and I'm sure break many records on HBO Max. We started with Batman, and went right into the beautiful black suit Superman, then Aquaman and The Flash and today Wonder Woman.
Zack Snyder has referred to Cyborg as "the heart" of the movie, so it's fitting that his individual video has been left until last. Every single video has given me goosebumps, I've literally cried in a couple of them with pure happiness and geeking out, but holy f***ing shit this is looking absolutely phenomenal.
