Well, we most likely still aren't quite over season eight of Game of Thrones.

For the most part, the writing was beyond ridiculous, and fans were so frustrated that some of them even began a petition to remake the final season.

Some of the cast-members showed up to a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, and addressed the furious fan reaction to the series finale, which…bombed.

It's only been two months since the HBO hit show ended, but the wounds haven't quite healed yet, it would seem. We're trying to desperately forget that the season ever even happened.

The cast got back together on Friday to talk all things GOT, and referenced the Change.org petition to 'Remake Game of Thrones Season eight with competent writers' that got 1.6 million signatures. 

Nikolaj CosterWaldau (Jaime Lannister), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), Conleth Hill (Varys), and Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos) showed up to the panel.

They got candid about the hugely negative reaction to the final season, with Nikolaj mainly addressing the "level of absurdity of the online petition";

"Every season, we had huge controversies. From Ned Stark being killed, ‘I’m never going to watch that piece of shit show again!’ And then there was the Red Wedding. And obviously, the end," he continued.

"I feel so lucky to have met so may fans of the show, and to realise this show has brought so many people together. Watching it, loving it. So obviously, It comes to an end, it’s going to piss you off no matter what."

The Danish actor, who portrayed Jaime Lannister, added;

 "It’s the end! But at the end of the day, it’s absolutely fine. If you hated the ending if you loved it, that’s great. Just don’t call people names."

Conleth (the Master of Whisperers) joined in, saying; 

"You look at the amount of people who are here. We are here to thank you for watching us all those years. This is the reality rather than a media-led hate campaign."

When Nikolaj was queried on his death scene, he said; “I thought it was perfect for him to end in the arms of Cersei."

Variety reported that some fans in the audience disagreed, and even booed the actor. “It made sense to me – that’s just my opinion," he said.

His co-star Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) previously said she was “gutted” about how her character died under the pile of bricks, and even revealed further disappointment over a crucial Cersei scene being edited out of the show.

The trailer for season three of Riverdale has landed and we have chills. You’ll be covered in goosebumps after watching the thrilling promo for the popular CW teen drama.

The explosive season two finale left us with a LOT of questions, mainly about the dashingly handsome Archie’s faith. We last saw the ambitious singer being led off in handcuffs after being framed for murder by Hiram Lodge.

We also left the Cooper family in quite the distressed state after Betty’s dad Hal was unveiled as serial killer ‘The Black Hood’.

The new trailer gives fans a recap of the previous season finale, but more importantly it features new footage of Archie, Veronica, Betty and Jughead after ‘the worst summer ever'.

Archie tells his friends that he wants them to have a “great, normal Labour Day weekend”. The gang manage to enjoy their trip away, but Betty’s world comes crashing down when she returns home.

The budding journalist spots her mum and sister Polly engaged in one freaky looking ritual in their back garden. They are standing around a fire, with what is believed to be a cult.

Apparently, Alice joined the cult after visiting The Farm- where Polly fled to after Jason’s death to raise their twins.

Beware- the freaky scene sees the pair holding the twin babies above the fire.

*Shudders*

Speaking of the new season, KJ Apa said that it will start off with Archie’s murder trial. “I guess we'll see if he's gonna go away or not,” the New Zealander teased.

Season three will feature another musical episode, and we’ll also meet the rest of Jughead’s family.

Season 3 of Riverdale will return this Autumn.

She a beautiful actress with a 20-year long Hollywood career under her belt. 

But it seems that a recent round of pictures of Tara Reid has worried some of her loyal fans – with many claiming that she doesn't look well. 

The 40-year-old was is currently in San Diego for the famed Comic-Con event.

Tara herself has been promoting her latest film, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens – taking to the IMDb yacht yesterday along with her fellow cast members. 

Wearing a bright orange two-piece co-ord by WOW Couture, Ms Reid wore her blonde hair back off her face.

She smiled warmly for the duration of her appearance, but some of her fans nonetheless voiced their concern on social media.

"It's so terribly sad….she has beautiful eyes, a beautiful face…she looks so painfully thin that it just ruins everything," one wrote, adding: "I'm sure her body is suffering inside and out (hair falling out, brittle nails, skin problems, etc etc). I just wish she could put weight on and be happy.

"All these Hollywood actresses starving to death for what???"

Another said: "Tara Reid is a walking, visible example of how Hollywood can f–k you up."

The actress shared snaps from the event on Instagram, and confirmed that she was 'having fun'.

She was joined on the yacht by the film's director Anthony Ferrante as well as co-stars actors Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Ryan Newman.

The Walking Dead's superhero Norman Reedus appeared on Jimmy Kimmel last night and told him of a very unexpected encounter.

While the actor was touring various Comic Con events, he met a very excited fan wanting a picture.

When the fan first came up to the actor she straight-off told him, "sometimes I like to pretend we're married." He was clearly weirded out by that… but then it got worse. 

Norman tells Jimmy that she started to act strange, shaking her hands and head. Then right after the picture was taken, she BIT him on the chest.

Security then had to tackle the woman to the ground and escort her off the premises.

The crazy woman even tweeted about it, and we just love what she wrote about him.

This is one show we never expected to see again but according to reports, a reboot of Xena: Warrior Princess is allegedly in the works.

Although, it is still in its earliest stages. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC is considering a “modern reboot” of the series and they are currently looking for a writer before they can begin any work.

It is also suggested that the new show would go ahead with the involvement of Lucy Lawless, the actress who originally played Xena, although it is not yet known in what capacity.

The report also suggests that the original show’s producers, Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are on board.

 Ms Lawless is a supporter of a reboot but she is sceptical that it is actually going to go ahead.

Speaking at Comic Con earlier this month, the 47-year-old actress said “They’ve got to bring that back. I’ve been pitching that show this weekend.”

However, in the wake of reboot rumours, Ms Lawless took to Twitter to warn fans of the show not to get their hopes up just yet, saying that it is (at least for the moment) just a rumour.

We’re still optimistic that it will be back. That was some serious ‘90s girl power!

When you watch the same films over and over every Christmas, it's easy to forget how much time has passed since they were released.

Take Love Actually, for example. It seems like a fairly 'modern' film right? Except for the lack of iPhones, obvz. But in reality, it's actually a whopping 12 years old, and we got a bit of a shock today when we realised that Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who played the adorably lovestruck Sam, is no longer a pre-teen.

Thomas, who is now 25 (yes, TWENTY FIVE YEARS OLD), appeared at Comic Con in San Diego recently, and we have to say that despite the years passing, Thomas is every bit as baby-faced as he was back in the early Noughties.

He probably hates hearing this, but he hasn't changed all that much 12 years on. In fact, the youthful actor still has trouble getting served down the pub. On a recent trip to Canada, he says he resorted to desperate measures when he was refused service at a bar and had no ID on him.

"For the first time in my life I got out my phone and looked myself up on IMDb," he told The Guardian back in April. "They laughed and even got me to sign my autograph. But they wouldn’t serve me that pint.”

Since starring as Liam Neeson's son in Love Actually, Thomas has had a pretty stellar acting career, with roles in Game of Thrones, Maze Runner, BBC's Wolf Hall adaptation and even a voice role in Phineas and Ferb.

This year’s San Diego Comic Con brought an awful lot excitement, as it does every year. With all the fuss about Jared Leto and his fellow villains there’s a chance you may have missed something more important.

Two of our favourite boybands are getting together and making dreams come true! NSync and the Backstreet Boys are actually working together again. Even better news: our favourite One Direction member and Mullingar native Niall Horan might join in the fun.

Nick Carter announced that his fellow Backstreet Boy buddy A.J McLean and Joey Fatone of ‘N Sync would be starring in his new film Dead 7.

We thought the boys hated each other? Was there not a boy band rivalry going on for all these years? Apparently not according to Nick: "We've been friends for a long time."

He continued "I wanted my friends in the film with me. What is more fun than riding horses and being zombies shooting things?”

We can think of a few things. 

We might be forced to change our tune if Nick’s dream comes true. Not only does the boy band alum want to make movies with his singing and dancing pals, he has his eyes on a certain One Direction member to join the cast.

Only days ago he tweeted Niall to ask him about joining the project. Nick thinks Niall would be the best person to play his brother. The pair manage to get themselves in a love triangle, naturally.

Hilary Duff, yes his brother’s ex-girlfriend, is who Nick has pictured to play the lady at the centre of the brother’s spat. Niall has yet to respond to the request, but we think this sounds like a great idea. Bizarre, but also really great.

Can you imagine the soundtrack?

It must be tough having a near-identical brother who just so happens to work in the exact same industry as you… and is pretty damn successful too. The stress of sibling rivalry got the better of poor Liam Hemsworth at Comic Con yesterday when he accused an interviewer of calling him by his brother's name.

Having misheard the journalist who introduced himself by saying, "Hi, I'm Chris," Liam got just a TAD snappy, saying, "You called me Chris? It's Liam. You called me Chris didn't you?"

 

The flustered interviewer managed to explain the misunderstanding quickly, leaving Liam more than a little red-faced. We have been watching the clip on repeat all morning, so we figured it was time to share it with the world.

Liam is currently at the world-famous event in San Francisco to promote his newest film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 with the help of his co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.

The trio gathered for a Q&A panel with fans, but seemed more interested in having the craic with one another. Messers.

The first posters for the film's final instalment were released yesterday, with a preview trailer also shown at Comic Con. The film doesn't hit cinemas until November, but we already can't wait to see the guys back in action.

Emma Roberts was spotted in floods of tears at a Comic-Con event in San Diego recently.

The young actress was being comforted by her fiancé and American Horror Story co-star, Evan Peters, as well as a female friend.

Perez reported that things got worse as the already dramatic night unfolded: “Evan left the hotel on his own while Emma was taken to another area by security.”

That certainly doesn’t sound good! The couple have been together since 2012 and became engaged in late 2013, early 2014.

However, this is not the first time Emma and Evan have encountered issues. In 2013, police were called to a domestic issue in a hotel room where Evan was revealed to have suffered a bloody nose.

Emma was arrested, but her fiancé did not press charges and the couple branded the incident: “unfortunate.”

Emma is the niece of legendary Hollywood actress, Julia Roberts.

We’ve just fallen that little bit more in love with Jessica Alba!

The actress was at a Comic Con signing in Las Vegas yesterday for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For with her co-stars Josh Brolin and Rosario Dawson.

The actress clearly had a busy day as she posted a snap to her Instagram from her hotel with the caption “pooped”.

But just look at that outfit…And those shoes!

The Hills star Audrina Patridge had a pretty epic makeover yesterday!

The 29-year-old reality TV star was at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, and really got into the spirit with this amazing costume!

With head-to-toe blue body paint and a long bright red wig, Audrina dressed up as X-Men bad girl Mystique.

The character, a mutant shape-shifter, is known for her ability to transform into entirely different bodies and species.

Audrina shared a snap to Twitter captioned, 'And the transformation begins!!!' in the early hours of Friday morning. 

In the X-Men films, Mystique is played by actress Rebecca Romijn AND our very own Jennifer Lawrence!

10 out of 10 for effort Audrina!
