Kit Harington Says Game Of Thrones Led To Mental Health Issues
In a new interview, Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has said that filming the epic series took a toll on his mental health, leading to the actor having to take a year off from work. Speaking to Jess Cagle on SiriusXM, Harington pointed to the show as the source of “mental health difficulties” he experienced, as picked up by THR.”I went through some mental health difficulties after Thrones, and during the end of Thrones, to be honest,” he told Cagle. “I think it was directly due to the nature of the show and what I had been doing for years.”Harington starred as Jon Snow in all eight seasons of Game of Thrones, a commitment that ran from late 2010 to mid 2018. In May 2019, just after the final season finished airing, Harington made headlines when he checked himself into a luxury rehab facility to focus on his mental health.Continue Reading at GameSpot

The 15 Coolest Funko Pop Exclusives From FunKon 2021
For fans of Funko Pop vinyl figures, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! The FunKon 2021 hybrid virtual/in-person convention kicks off on August 4, allowing collectors of designer toys the opportunity to buy some of the newest and rarest items Funko has to offer.GameSpot got the opportunity to preview the offerings at a media preview event. In all, 57 exclusive and limited items are being offered–50 of which are brand new Funko Pop collectibles. After combing through all of the exclusives up for grabs, we’ve boiled it down to the 15 absolute coolest.If you’re actually attending FunKon–online or in-person–these are the Pops you should have your eyes on. If you’re not, take a look below at what you’re missing out on. Chances are they’ll all be available for a much higher price on eBay soon enough.FunKon runs August 4-6, with plenty of news, live streams, and giveaways. While a small in-person gathering will be happening at the company’s Hollywood store, those without tickets can take part in the virtual convention across Funko’s Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. 1. Jumbo Galactus (Galaxy)This is a variant of the original jumbo-sized Galaxtus Pop. Instead of the traditional color scheme, this Galactus is painted to look like a galaxy–and it comes with a miniature Silver Surfer pop colored the same way. 2. Alice in Wonderland’s Walrus and the CarpenterLike Galactus, this particular Pop is technically two–the two minor characters from Alice in Wonderland. While the Walrus is a standard-sized Pop, the Carpenter is a miniature. 3. Alice in Wonderland’s White Rabbit (Blacklight)This new take on the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland joins Funko’s blacklight Pops line. Not only does the figure glow brightly when held under a blacklight, but it also comes in a very colorful box that strays from Funko’s traditional offerings. 4. Crash Bandicoot in Kupuna-wa ArmorCrash Bandicoot fans are going to want to take a look at this. The convention’s Crash Bandicoot exclusive finds the titular bandicoot in a Kupuna-wa mask, which first appeared in 2020’s Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. 5. It’s A Small World: Child from MexicoFor Disney Parks fans, chances are you’ll want to get your hands on this Pop, which represents one of the children from the Mexico section of the iconic ride It’s a Small World. 6. BladeThe MCU movie has yet to materialize, but Funko isn’t waiting. Instead, the Blade Pop is…

James Gunn on The Suicide Squad Review Bombing, 'I'll Live'
Ahead of the release for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, a small effort is underway to review-bomb the film before it premieres publicly. But director James Gunn isn’t too worried about it.Review bombing is an act in which groups go to sites with user review features and intentionally leave negative reviews on a film or video game for reasons not necessarily related to the quality of said film or game. This is apparently something that is happening to The Suicide Squad despite it not hitting HBO Max and theaters until this weekend.While it’s not clear exactly why The Suicide Squad is getting review bombed, director James Gunn issued a calm response telling fans, “I’ll live.”I’ll live – stuff like this means nothing in the big picture. (And important to point out most the SnyderCut fans have been supportive, it’s only a few who feel it’s worthwhile spending their time doing stuff like this.)— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) August 3, 2021 https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js“I’ll live – stuff like this means nothing in the big picture. (And important to point out most of the SnyderCut fans have been supportive, it’s only a few who feel it’s worthwhile spending their time doing stuff like this,” Gunn tweeted.There could be a couple of competing factors involved in the review bombing ranging from fans who want to see original director David Ayer continue the Suicide Squad (or at least release his AyerCut of it), to the classic Marvel vs. DC rivalry. And Gunn himself says there are only a few SnyderCut fans who are upset with Gunn’s more light-hearted approach.Either way, you can decide for yourself what review to give it when The Suicide Squad premieres on August 5. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/06/22/the-suicide-squad-official-trailer-3″]If you’re curious, IGN awarded The Suicide Squad a 9 out of 10 in our review, calling it a “gut-wrenching, gut-busting wild ride and DC’s best film in years.”[poilib element=”accentDivider”]Matt T.M.
