Game of Thrones

Like Snow Patrol and Coldplay before them, Sigur Ros will be taking a trip to Westeros next season. According to Entertainment Weekly, the indie band is the next music act to make a guest starring appearance on HBO's "Game of Thrones."

EW.com confirmed that Jón Þór Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason are all currently filming scenes for the upcoming fourth season in Croatia.

The site also made mention of the fact that the showrunners of "Game of Thrones" would often listen to the sounds of the Iceland art-pop band while filming in their native country.

"Game of Thrones" is expected to return to HBO in the spring, and it will probably kill off a couple of your favorite characters.

Kit Harington is sure to be one of the biggest breakout stars from "Game of Thrones," considering the popularity of his character Jon Snow, and for his first foray into big-budget action, he's traveling to a fantasy world of a different kind.

"The Seventh Son" throws him into a much more fantastical adventure with significantly less violence and nudity, but a great deal more Jeff Bridges.

The cast stopped by MTV's Comic-Con Live to talk about their upcoming adventure film, and Harington talked about how his two fantasy roles compare and why he considers himself lucky as an actor.

"I've been really lucky in this, that it was a practical set. They minimized the amount of green screen quite heavily, so we had these incredibly big, huge scale sets, and it's the same on 'Game of Thrones,' " he said. "I've actually worked in a very practical way with stunts and things. It was the same on ['Seventh Son']. I'm lucky in that way. It was fun for that reason."

"The Seventh Son" opens on January 17, 2014.

Hopefully by now you've come to terms with what went down this past Sunday on "Game of Thrones," and not to throw salt in your open wounds, but George R. R. Martin, the sadistic man behind your sadness, went on "Conan" to laugh at you.

Ok, so it wasn't that harsh of him, but you can definitely tell that he gets a kick out of this. Can you blame him though? "A Storm of Swords," the book which serves as the basis for the third season of the show, did come out in 2000. Remember that year? It was a while ago.

Ok, so we know there's a lot going on inside you right now. These are called emotions, and they're a result of having watched last night's episode of "Game of Thrones." No, you're not alone, and we completely understand. Things did not go well for some major characters in the latest episode, and as always with "GoT," it's probably best just to talk it out.

Thankfully, the folks over MTV Geek sat down with Felicia Day a little while ago to preempt all of these shocking twists, so that when they did happen, we'd have a friendly face to tell us that we're not alone.

Check out the recap above, and let us know how you're doing. Are you sad? Surprised? Angry? Hungry? Let us know in the comments below and on Twitter, and if it's that last one, you should probably go eat a sandwich or something.

If you're still processing the weekly craziness that went down on "Game of Thrones" last night, may we suggest checking out MTV Geek's weekly dose of deliciousness "Cooking with Thrones."

On this week's episode, host Steven Smith, Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, and Joe Kelly help you digest "And Now His Watch Is Ended" and a little dish called Varys' Tea Eggs.

Plus, if you stick around until the end, you'll hear from Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark, who recalls a time on set when she didn't understand the concept of continuity and had to keep eating biscuits.

Check it all out in the latest episode of "Cooking with Thrones."

Winter has come to Manhattan. Well, actually, it never left, but bear with me here... As I was saying: Winter has come to Manhattan in the form of "Game of Thrones" The Exhibition, a touring collection of Westeros memorabilia (Ned Stark's severed head, anyone?), sponsored by HBO and Time Warner Cable. And in celebration of the exhibit's only U.S. stop, a slew of the realm's famous faces abandoned their firs and corsets to attend a special VIP opening Wednesday night in New York.

Among the dapper stars was Kit Harington, whom fans know as man-in-black Jon Snow. As we chatted about the upcoming season, Harington surprised us by revealing he didn't actually read any portions of the script in which his character didn't appear—meaning he's just as in the dark about Dany's dragons or Arya's whereabouts as we are.

"This year, I didn't read the script. I just read my portion, which may seem like lazy actor stuff, but it wasn't," he explained. "I wanted to watch the TV show fresh as a viewer would."

Winter is coming, and this time it's bringing along a new cast of characters. In addition to Jon Snow, Rob Stark and Daenerys Targaryen, we'll be meeting Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, in the upcoming third season of "Game of Thrones."

Ciarin Hinds has been cast as Mance, and fans get their first look at his portrayal of the character in a new behind-the-scenes video blog for the hit HBO fantasy series. Hinds can be seen talking with Kit Harington's Jon Snow, seemingly for the first time. "You're Ned Stark's bastard," he says in the clip.

As all dedicated "Game of Thrones" fans well know, winter is coming. It looms, menacingly, much like the long wait we still have for the start of the third season! Okay, the wait for the season premiere on March 31 isn't quite as ominous as the evil winter coming to Westeros, but every time we see any mention of the new season we get more ancy for March to get here already.

Case in point, there's a new teaser trailer out online today that is set to air on HBO this Sunday. The nearly one-minute teaser does NOT feature any footage from the upcoming season, but it features some clever concept art and a first-look at a particularly ominous figure from the books. Check out the teaser below!
