Kit Harington vs Gerard Butler at the ‘Dragon 2′ premiere: who would you rather?
Here are some photos from last night’s LA premiere of How To Train Your Dragon 2. First of all, it’s kind of nice to see Gerard Butler, who has been largely MIA from public life for several months now. I see photos of him at airports every now and then, but he’s barely been in the news. And he’s barely done any promotion for Dragon 2. Apparently, he’s been in Australia filming a movie. Yeah. Sure.
I’m also adding photos of other people at the premiere, like Djimon Hounsou (who looked lovely), Dylan McDermott (he was just there, he’s not in the movie), America Ferrera (she looks great!) and of course… Kit Harington. Seeing Kit with a dragon makes me think of how Jon Snow would be very interesting with the Khaleesi. Speaking of, would you like to talk briefly about last night’s Game of Thrones? Let’s do this.
SPOILERS for last night’s GoT episode, “The Watchers on the Wall.”
Here’s my question: is there no way to get word to King’s Landing to send reinforcements, that the Wildling army is marching on the Wall? Because it feels like the people in King’s Landing already know that the Wildlings are trying to breach the Wall and they’re just like, “Eh, whatever.” Of course it’s too late to get reinforcements at this point, but Jon Snow has known that the Wildlings were going to attack the Wall for what? Months!! Anyway, I just have some issues with the whole “federal aid to the Wall” thing. The North never forgets!!
As for the battle royale… a little goes a long way. I liked seeing the individual fighting styles and I liked seeing Jon Snow come into his own as a leader of men and as a warrior. It made me think of Ned Stark!! I’m serious, I got a tear in my eye thinking about how Ned and Jon were probably a lot alike. Jon might be smarter though.
As for Ygritte… well, that was a perfect way to go, wasn’t it? “You know nothing…” GAH!!! And my heart broke when Jon first saw her and his first reaction was just to… smile. He was happy to see her. I can’t believe I’m getting so emotional about Jon and Ygritte, but there are go. Rose Leslie has a nice interview in People Mag this morning too – go here to read.
