GAME OF THRONES: Giant Dragon Skull Discovered On Dorset Beach

GAME OF THRONES: Giant Dragon Skull Discovered On Dorset Beach

Okay, so it's not a real dragon skull (unfortunately), but one of the coolest bits of tv/movie promotion we've seen. Just take a look at what was found in the sands of Charmouth beach on Dorset's Jurassic Coast yesterday morning..

The 40-foot skull is (obviously) a man-made sculpture designed by a team of three, taking over two months to construct. It was created by movies and TV streaming service Blinkbox, to celebrate the arrival of HBO's third season of Game of Thrones on its service on July 15th. "Game of Thrones is easily the most talked-about TV show of the moment," said Ben Ayers of Blinkbox. "We wanted to mark its arrival on Blinkbox with a spectacle every bit as dramatic as this amazing series." I would say they succeeded! Game of Thrones season 3 will be available July 15 at 9am exclusively on Blinkbox, ahead of its DVD and Blu-ray release.

Nope, I was thinking Game of Thrones as I was smart enough to read the title.

Bad ass..Dead dragons are cooler than live ones.
They don't kill you as often.

Looks like somebody collected all seven Dragon Balls.

I'm quite happy GoT is receiving all this attention. It deserves every bit of it.

@MrCritic115 Considering the Hobbit sucks and GoT doesn't, I doubt it.

Very cute photos) This skull must be used for 4th season, it's look so epic!

They should leave that there forever.

Reminds me of the Statue of Liberty we put in our lake here in Madison, WI for 2 winters Planet of the Apes style. I miss it and wish it would come back every year.

@MrCritic115 Maybe you should read your post again.'Most people' does not allude to people on the beach.

@ monkeyballs

You should watch Game of Thrones, I doubt you'll regret it.

I need to watch Game of Thrones. And that teaser image was kinda weird. I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that.

This reminds me of Skyrim.

They had Arya hiding in a Giant Dragon skull in Season 1 under King's Landing. It has sort of already been in the show or a form of it.

So is this where the Kingsmoot will take place then? They will be shuffling stuff around to compress the story i'm sure so this seems to be a likely indication of the ironborn-related plot.

@batfan175 nice book reference I had forgotten where the kingsmoot took place !!!! :)
