Things We Saw Today: Kit Harington Gets Historical, Knows His Bastards

Kit Harington knows things. Jon Snow, on the other hand...

Kit Harington did not sleep through history class, that is for sure. The Game of Thrones star proved he’s got some history chops by playing a game of “Bastard or Not Bastard” with the fine folks over at IGN. (via The Daily Dot)

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron hit the box office this weekend to the tune of about $187.7 million. It rests at #2 for all time domestic openings right behind the first Avengers, which raked in about $207 million. (via Comic Book Resources)
  • Duolingo, a language learning app, recently shared with NPR that they’re working on expanding the languages offered through their service. One language definitely stands out from the rest of the ones to be added in a future update: Klingon. (via Pajiba)


ThinkGeek recently came out with a World of Warcraft themed line of bath robes, perfect for when you’re raiding and don’t feel like putting on clothes. The Draenei one looks pretty neat, and comes complete with soft, cushiony horns. It’s apparently also sized for women. Yes. (via Fashionably Geek)

  • The Assassin’s Creed movie starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard is set to start filming in September. The movie currently has a December 2016 release slated, but no plot details have been shared thus far. (via The Daily Dot)
  • Remember Twitch Plays Pokémon? Twitch streamer GoodguyGastly decided to go a little… uh… further, and used the anonymous webcam streaming website Omegle to help him beat the Elite Four. It might seem obvious, but the video is pretty NSFW. (via Kotaku)
