There’s been rumors and speculation about Game of Thrones coming to a big screen, perhaps as the series climax. HBO has said that they feel that move may be a betrayal of HBO subscribers who have been loyal to the series.
Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) says he thinks it’s a possibility, and that the IMAX screening of last season’s final two episodes showed that the series translates well
"I think it’s possible," Harrington told IGN. "I think it lends itself very well to the big screen, Thrones. They put it out on IMAX and apparently it worked surprisingly well. Whenever I’ve seen premieres it’s been on a big cinema screen and it’s felt like it belonged there.
"I can’t tell you whether they’ll ever do that; I can’t tell you whether they’ll ever want to do that. They wrote it as a TV show and David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] felt it lent itself very well to episodic story-telling. I don’t know. If they want to throw millions and millions of dollars at a two-hour movie in the future I think it would almost have to be the climax of something, rather than a whole series squashed down into two hours. That wouldn’t make a lot of sense."
We’ll see if the Game of Thrones movie becomes a reality. As for now, Season 5 is airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO, and the series has already been renewed for Season 6.
