'Aquaman' star Jason Momoa was once too 'broke to fly home' when filming 'Game of Thrones'

On the back of starring in such global successes as “Aquaman” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Jason Momoa has become a household name in the entertainment world.

Rewind back a decade however, and the actor’s lifestyle looked quite different; with Momoa recently revealing that there was a time when he wasn’t able to financially justify taking a flight back home.

On Monday, the actor took to Instagram to reflect upon the early days of being on the set of “Game of Thrones” (GOT), explaining how he spent his break with a small budget, in between filming scenes for the hit show.

“While filming GOT we had a lil break. We were to [sic] broke to fly home, so we rented a panel van, aka UHAUL, in Belfast and drove around beautiful, amazing Ireland, searching for the greatest pint of Guinness,” the actor wrote in an Instagram post, which was accompanied with a picture of Momoa lying down and smiling in the back of a van, in Donegal.

“So many wonderful people and stories. I treasure those times. It was the simplest moments I remember the most. I still miss my family. Been a long road and I feel like I’m just getting started.”

10.7 million people may skip work this Sunday and Monday for the ‘Game of Thrones’ series finale

On Sunday night, fans will watch the series finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” ending their own nightly watch — but not all may be willing to let go after the 80-minute episode ends. That’s in addition to the 5.8 million employees who typically work Sunday nights who are also planning to use a vacation day, sick day, or personal day so that they can see which leader ascends to the Iron Throne in the finale live.

10.7 million people may skip work this Sunday and Monday for the 'Game of Thrones' series finale

On Sunday night, fans will watch the series finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” ending their own nightly watch — but not all may be willing to let go after the 80-minute episode ends.

Instead, an estimated 4.9 million Americans will extend the mourning period for their favorite HBO fantasy epic well beyond that evening and skip work the following day, by either calling out sick or using a last-minute vacation day, according to a new poll by the Workforce Institute at Kronos.

That’s in addition to the 5.8 million employees who typically work Sunday nights who are also planning to use a vacation day, sick day, or personal day so that they can see which leader ascends to the Iron Throne in the finale live.

Altogether, the last episode of “Game of Thrones” will sidetrack 27.2 million workers in the U.S. through Sunday night and into Monday, the study found.

While 10.7 million will be no-shows, another 2.9 million are expected to arrive late to the office Monday morning and 3.4 million admit they’ve arranged to work remotely, even though they typically do not. Millions more will be less productive than usual that Monday as they spend work hours discussing the show’s conclusion with coworkers, reading stories about the episode online, or posting about its ending.

Netflix should take a cue from 'Game of Thrones' and ditch binge-watching for new shows

In an era in which binge-watching is the new norm, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” breaks the mold. Instead of releasing new episodes all in one day, the fantasy drama doles them out in weekly installments, just like traditional cable programs. The move may seem old school in a time when Netflix has normalized marathon viewing of TV shows, but it’s actually a major factor in the prolific success of the show. Fans get a reprieve between episodes to react to what happened and speculate about what’s to come. And they have built online and real world communities to do just that. The show’s permeation into the public consciousness is so pervasive that even people who have never seen “Game of Thrones” before know what it is. The weekly scheduling has been so key for HBO that analysts have begun to suggest that Netflix and other streaming services that currently offer all-you-can-watch options for their new TV shows ditch that model in favor of returning to a more traditional release schedule. “I fundamentally believe that Netflix is making a mistake by putting [content] out there the way they do,” Doug Creutz, analyst at Cowen, said. He said that the streaming service could benefit from putting out episodes its bigger shows like “Stranger Things” one at a time to capitalize on fan excitement and engagement. “I personally like that there’s a week to process and work through the episode,” Kelsey Daniel, 28, of Virginia, said. “There’s so much to decipher between the show and the books and I really enjoy reading up on fan theories. I don’t feel like I retain as much from shows that I binge watch on Netflix.”

Currently, fans of Netflix shows are compelled to watch all the new episodes of a show during the first weekend they are available if they want to avoid spoilers come Monday morning. This rushed experience was exciting and well-received by audiences in 2013 when Netflix debuted “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black,” but Creutz said fans like having time to digest the content and anticipate what comes next. “Since I’m all about instant gratification, I love having all of the episodes at once,” Leah O’Donnell, a 45-year-old fan from California, said. “However, I feel like I get more out of them when they come out once a week. I have time in between to absorb and analyze them and talk about them with others. It’s kind of like cake. I want the whole cake right now, but I enjoy it more when I just have a slice now and then.” Cruetz said he believed people would have a positive reaction to Netflix parsing out the new episodes, but noted that library shows like “The Office” or “Friends” should remain binge-able. After all, these shows have already aired previously so there is no need to withhold episodes to build up suspense or buzz for the show. “Honestly, I think that Netflix and other on-demand services should consider releasing some of their shows on a weekly basis if they’re interested in building a more engaged fan base,” Nolan Pacchiana, 29, from New York, said. “I can’t think of any shows from on-demand providers that have hooked me in the same way the GoT did, even in the case of high quality shows.”

To binge or not to binge

Binge-watching is by no means going to disappear. It is a major way that TV watchers consume content. However, new series could benefit from spreading out their episodes. When you look at the top 20 most watched shows on Netflix from 2018, the majority of them are long-running shows that are not Netflix originals. Programs like “The Office,” “Friends,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “NCIS” and “Criminal Minds,” each with between 200 and 400 episodes, round out the top five. All these shows are either sitcoms or procedural dramas. They typically stick to a traditional narrative structure with the majority of shocking character departures happening during the premiere, mid-season finale and finale. “Game of Thrones,” based on George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels, has a penchant for dispatching main characters in brutal, shocking and unexpected ways. The fact that no character was safe from death made each episode all the more thrilling for audiences who tuned in in droves on Sunday nights to see if their favorites made it through the night. “Stranger Things” follows this model as well. It is a dynamic program filled with mystery and suspense and there is no predictable narrative structure. Fans have come to care about the main characters and tune in to see how they face off against the newest seasons villains — both human and monster — and who doesn’t make it to the end of the season. On the day Season two of “Stranger Things” premiered in October 2017, 9 million viewers tuned in to watch — double that of any other Netflix original over the past year and a half, Brian Fuhrer, Nielsen’s senior vice president of product leadership, said at the company’s upfront last week.

Within the first three days of the season going live, 15.8 million viewers watched the premiere episode. For each episode that followed, that number continued to shrink. This could be because people decided to parse out the episodes instead of watching them all in one sitting. For comparison, “Game of Thrones” season seven, which premiered in July 2017, saw 10.1 million viewers in the first night the episode was available. Week two and three saw a small dip in first night viewership, but interest in viewing the show on its premiere night continued to gain momentum throughout the seven-episode season. “‘Game of Thrones’ has benefited from the fact that it wasn’t binge watching,” Peter Csathy, founder of Creatv Media, said. “If it was binge-watching ready then all the things we are talking about would be vanquished.”

Starbucks got an estimated $2.3 billion in free advertising from ‘Game of Thrones’ gaffe, and it wasn’t even its coffee cup

Starbucks got an estimated $2.3 billion in free advertising from 'Game of Thrones' gaffe, and it wasn't even its coffee cup

Starbucks gained an estimated $2.3 billion in free advertising over the last few days after a modern-day coffee cup was spotted during a “Game of Thrones” episode — and it turns out it wasn’t even a Starbucks cup.

On Sunday, eagle-eyed fans of HBO’s fantasy epic noticed something out of place during a feast scene. Photos and videos of the moment went viral on social media within hours of the show airing.

The label is muddled in shadow, but many fans speculated that it was the iconic green siren from Starbucks — and most of the jokes and discussion called out the Seattle coffee chain by name. Turns out, it was just a craft services cup.

Stacy Jones, CEO of marketing company Hollywood Branded, put the estimated value of all the buzz at $2.3 billion. Jones cited PR subscriptions service Critical Mention, which has tallied 10,627 mentions of Starbucks and ‘Game of Thrones’ online and on TV and radio around the world.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime collision of opportunity for Starbucks,” she said. “But really, this is just the tip of the iceberg, because what isn’t being monitored or estimated is the word of mouth and social media on top of this.”

Separately, social media analytics and monitoring platform Talkwalker counted more than 193,000 mentions within 48 hours that cited both Starbucks and “Game of Thrones,” or a variation of the series’ hashtag, on Twitter, in social forums, blogs and news sites.

Starbucks declined to comment.

As of Tuesday, the coffee cup had been edited out of the episode, but chatter about Starbucks and the episode on Twitter and Reddit continued.

“It’s impossible to put a real figure on how much free advertising Starbucks gets out of the situation, but it’s in a totally different category than product placement because it was accidental, which makes it more valuable,” said Dan Hill, CEO of Hill Impact.

“I know people assign a value to these things, ‘more than $1 million in public relations,’ but I think it’s all hogwash — too hard to quantify. Plus this one will live on as a meme, so I guess you could say it’s a gift that will keep on giving,” he said.

The fact that so many people associated the cup with Starbucks is a testament to the strength of the coffee shop’s brand.

“Starbucks has become almost synonymous for coffee, so it is understandable that viewers assumed the cup on screen was one of theirs,” said Charell Star, director of content and innovation at marketing and advertising firm Essence.

Hill, however, said the viral nature of the event was less about Starbucks’ brand power and more about pointing out HBO’s mistake.

“The public response has more to do with the country’s ‘gotcha culture’ — picking people and brands apart — than it does the power of Starbucks,” he said.

The placement of the cup garnered so much attention because it was incongruous to the setting of “Game of Thrones,” said Noah Mallin, head of experience, content and sponsorship at media agency Wavemaker.

Traditionally, product placement would be more suited to a character or the show it was featured in. Had this been intentional, the cup would have been considered a standard product placement, a branded product that is in the scene but not part of the plot or storyline.

Because of the high ratings and cultural relevance of “Game of Thrones,” a product placement in this show could cost six figures, Mallin said. The May 5 episode drew 11.8 million viewers for its first airing, down about 2% from the prior week.

However, because HBO is not ad-supported, advertisers typically do not pay for product placement. Instead, they supply the product — a coffee cup, a car, an item of clothing or a shooting location — to the show, offsetting the cost of production rather than paying a flat fee for their product to appear.

Mallin said media or advertising companies would have a hard time ever reproducing this type of fervor organically.

“This was lightning in a bottle,” he said.

Sansa is the best leader on ‘Game of Thrones,’ says Columbia Business School professor

Sansa is the best leader on 'Game of Thrones,' says Columbia Business School professor

Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister get a lot of attention as the heroes, or antiheroes, of the HBO show “Game of Thrones.” But Bruce Craven, Columbia Business School professor and author of “Win or Die: Leadership Secrets from Game of Thrones,” tells CNBC Make It that the character with the best leadership qualities is none other than Sansa Stark.

Various characters from all over the seven kingdoms have maneuvered and manipulated their way around each other in their pursuit for power since the show debuted in 2011, but Sansa has succeeded where many of her friends — and enemies — have not.

“She confronted horrible challenges. She lost much of her family. She was isolated,” says Craven. “Yet she managed to learn from very difficult, treacherous people and, at the same time, stay true to her values about protecting her family.”

She has managed to survive devastating conflict in Westeros, help reunite her family and bring stability back to Winterfell.

HBO wants Trump to stop making 'Game of Thrones'-style tweets

In a more than 400-page report, Mueller’s team said it did not find evidence that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin. Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein further determined that Mueller’s findings did not warrant an obstruction of justice offense.

As part of his victory lap Thursday morning, Trump tweeted an image using a font style that closely matches the title cards and credits used in HBO’s show.

“NO COLLUSION. NO OBSTRUCTION,” the text of the image reads. “FOR THE HATERS AND THE RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS — GAME OVER.”

HBO, a unit of AT&T, said in a statement that it doesn’t want Trump using the show, which clocked a record-high 17.4 million viewers during its season premiere, to suit his political agenda.

“Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes,” an HBO spokesman said in a statement to CNBC.

Trump has aped the style and slogans of “Game of Thrones” before. He has shared at least two other photos in the past six months that borrow from the slogans and font style of the television series.

In November, Trump promoted his administration’s promised sanctions against Iran by tweeting “SANCTIONS ARE COMING NOVEMBER 5” — a clear reference to the phrase “Winter is coming” popularized by the show.

“We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes,” HBO told CNBC at the time. The network’s official Twitter account later suggested Trump misused its trademark.

In January, Trump’s Instagram account posted a similar photo — this one apparently meant to promote Trump’s long-held campaign promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding HBO’s statement.

HBO wants Trump to stop making 'Game of Thrones'-style tweets

In a more than 400-page report, Mueller’s team said it did not find evidence that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin. Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein further determined that Mueller’s findings did not warrant an obstruction of justice offense.

As part of his victory lap Thursday morning, Trump tweeted an image using a font style that closely matches the title cards and credits used in HBO’s show.

“NO COLLUSION. NO OBSTRUCTION,” the text of the image reads. “FOR THE HATERS AND THE RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS — GAME OVER.”

HBO, a unit of AT&T, said in a statement that it doesn’t want Trump using the show, which clocked a record-high 17.4 million viewers during its season premiere, to suit his political agenda.

“Though we can understand the enthusiasm for Game of Thrones now that the final season has arrived, we still prefer our intellectual property not be used for political purposes,” an HBO spokesman said in a statement to CNBC.

Trump has aped the style and slogans of “Game of Thrones” before. He has shared at least two other photos in the past six months that borrow from the slogans and font style of the television series.

In November, Trump promoted his administration’s promised sanctions against Iran by tweeting “SANCTIONS ARE COMING NOVEMBER 5” — a clear reference to the phrase “Winter is coming” popularized by the show.

“We were not aware of this messaging and would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes,” HBO told CNBC at the time. The network’s official Twitter account later suggested Trump misused its trademark.

In January, Trump’s Instagram account posted a similar photo — this one apparently meant to promote Trump’s long-held campaign promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding HBO’s statement.
