    1. Or maybe GOT is a Western version of Asian epic movies given they're older and better than that US trash of the show :)

  3. This looks like it will be epic! I can see why it cost so much to make by the first images alone. We'll be looking forward to a trailer soon!

    1. it really is expensive, but unlike America, in China most of the expensive blockbusters earn the money back and their market is now the second biggest in the world. I'm looking forward to Hollywood making movies with Asian audiences in mind not just the US one since Asians do have better taste in films

    2. We'll see if they ever do get around to doing it. Seems like Hollywood doesn't know it's ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to what the people want these days. They just keep recycling the same crap over and over again or push out superhero films like The Duggar's push out babies.
