Now That’s a Big Wall: Game of Thrones is Coming to IMAX This Month

The nothing Jon Snow knows is even larger than previously believed.


It’s a long wait to season five of Game of Thrones, but HBO is offering a way for fans to tide themselves over. Well, fans who live close enough to about 150 IMAX theater locations.

HBO has announced that they’ll be bringing a couple of Game of Thrones episodes to IMAX:

Television’s most prodigious series is coming to the world’s most immersive cinematic experience. On January 23, 2015, HBO will become the first television network to feature its programming in IMAX® theatres, showing two episodes from season four of Game of Thrones followed by the eagerly anticipated worldwide debut of an exclusively created sneak-peek trailer for IMAX of season five. The episodes will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX® format and will be released for an exclusive one-week engagement in upwards of 150 IMAX theatres across the country’s top markets through January 29. In coming days, fans can log onto for screening information and to purchase tickets.

The two episodes getting the IMAX treatment are are the final two episodes of season four: “The Watchers on the Wall,” in which wildling armies assault the Wall and Castle Black, and “The Children,” an episode that kind of defies succinct summary. You’ll be able to see both of them in ridiculous size, provided you live close enough to a participating IMAX theater.

And if you don’t, you might still be interested to know that there’s a Game of Thrones RPG in the works. No, not the one by Telltale Studios. Another one. A “dark” one. Whatever that means. I mean, I’m not as familiar with the setting as your average The Mary Sue editor, but I still don’t get the sense that there’s much that’s light in the series. Still, Big Bad Wolf have released two blurry screenshots from their game, which you can check out at Uproxx.
