Honest Trailers – Friday
To celebrate Ice Cube’s latest movie Ride Along, we decided to take on one of his all-time classics: Friday.
With a new book still years away, the new season not starting ’til April and teasers of spin-off games and books only whetting our appetite, Game of Thrones fans are sure to sink their teeth deep into the new season when it does get here. The show is best known for it’s bloody, cut-throat attitude and doesn’t shy away from making changes to the books to keep their flow in check. That said there is no doubt there are going to be some incredibly satisfying moments in the new series that fans are going to be hitting the “instant replay” button for. I’m already imagining a flood of Game of Thrones gifs as we speak.
So, while we’re desperately flicking through the novels to see if there’s a juicy page we might have missed and scanning the internet for another chapter from “Winds” George might have gifted us, let’s look forward to those glorious moments. Needless to say, SPOILERS aplenty below.
