Kit Harington cried at 'Game of Thrones' finale: 'I was very shocked'

Kit Harington says the Game of Thrones finale left him shocked and in tears.

The 32-year-old actor discussed his reaction to the HBO series' ending during Tuesday's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

"We had a table read, and I was the only person who hadn't read the episodes," Harington said. "I got to the table read and they used me as a litmus test ... and they got some pretty good reactions. It was all filmed."

"I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding. And then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried," he shared.

Harington confirmed the Battle of Winterfell, where Jon and other characters face off with the White Walkers, will rival the Battle of Helm's Deep in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers in scope.

"I think it might be the biggest battle on TV or film. I couldn't say for sure, but it's up there. [It took] 55 nights [to film]," the star said. "It's a night battle."

"We were shooting this in Belfast," he added. "It was serious. Yeah, it was a lot to ask. But I think it will definitely worth it."

Harington couldn't help but laugh as Colbert jokingly suggested various nonsensical endings, such as Jon Snow having a son and naming him Tony, making him Tony Stark, aka Iron Man.

"You got it!" the actor said.

Game of Thrones will return for an eighth and final season April 14. The series released a first trailer for the season Tuesday featuring Jon, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and other characters.

'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil': Angelina Jolie sports wings in new poster

Super Sale

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil star Angelina Jolie sports wings in a new poster for the film.

The movie shared an atmospheric photo of the 43-year-old actress and a new October release date for the Disney sequel Wednesday.

The poster shows Jolie in costume as the title character, Maleficent, the fairy who cursed Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) as an infant. The character sports her signature horns and new wings.

"Angelina Jolie returns in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Coming to theaters October 18, 2019," Walt Disney Studios captioned the photo on Twitter.

Variety said Maleficent: Mistress of Evil was initially slated to open in theaters May 28, 2020. The film will now contend with the second weekends of The Adams Family and The Goldfinch instead of Fast & Furious 9 and The Spongebob Movie.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is directed by Kon-Tiki helmer Joachim Rønning. The movie co-stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Skrein, Sam Riley, Harris Dickinson, Imelda Staunton and Juno Temple.

The original Maleficent opened in 2014 and earned over $758.5 million at the box office. The film is based on the story of Sleeping Beauty, which Disney previously adapted as a 1959 animated movie.

NBC orders Season 5 of 'Superstore'

NBC has announced it ordered a fifth season of its workplace comedy Superstore.

"Week after week Justin Spitzer, our amazing writers, and cast and crew masterfully deliver a comedy that not only makes us laugh but speaks to the larger issues of the day," Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming for NBC Entertainment, said in a statement Monday.

The show stars America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Colton Dunn, Nichole Bloom, Nico Santos and Mark McKinney as the employees of a fictional big-box store called Cloud 9.

Dunn shared on Twitter a video of the cast cheering the renewal news.

"Cinco," he captioned the clip.

Feldman told UPI last fall that he thinks fans see themselves in the friendly, quirky Cloud 9 staffers.

"We are all the same," he said. "Some people wear vests and live in Missouri and some people wear tuxes and live in Hollywood. But we all talk about what's going on in the news. We have relationships. We make mistakes. We're all human and we're just reflecting that. I think it's comforting for people to see themselves."

Hello Kitty movie in the works at New Line Cinema

New Line Cinema said it is working on an animated, English-language movie starring Hello Kitty.

This is the first time Japan's Sanrio design and licensing company has granted a major film studio the rights to its 45-year-old characters Hello Kitty, Gudetama, My Melody and Little Twin Stars, which have inspired toy lines and appeared as images on apparel.

Hello Kitty even has her own giant balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

"I am extremely pleased that Hello Kitty and other popular Sanrio characters will be making their Hollywood debut. Hello Kitty has long been a symbol of friendship and we hope this film will only serve to grow that circle of friendship around the world," Sanrio founder Shintaro Tsuji said in a statement Tuesday.

No writers or cast members have been hired yet for the movie.

"It's a rare privilege to have the opportunity to explore the possibilities of such timeless (intellectual property.) Hello Kitty and her friends have been part of our shared culture for decades, and we look forward to exploring where her newest adventure will take her," said New Line's Richard Brener and Carolyn Blackwood in a joint statement.

Who's joining Patrick Stewart's for the Jean-Luc Picard/Star Trek spin-off?

Salvation alum Santiago Cabrera and Blindspot actress Michelle Hurd have joined the ensemble of a new Star Trek series focused on Patrick Stewart's iconic Star Trek character Jean-Luc Picard.

"Make it so," CBS All Access tweeted, along with its casting announcement.

The streaming service did not say what characters the actors would play.

The project was announced in August.

Stewart portrayed the star-ship captain Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran 1987-94, and in four movies, the last of which was released in 2002. The title and debut date for his new show have not been announced yet.

Cabrera's other credits include Big Little Lies, The Musketeers and The Mindy Project. Hurd recently appeared in Lethal Weapon and Ash vs. Evil Dead.
