Filming Making Game of Thrones Season 3

MGoT: Season 3 by the numbers

Making Game of Thrones has a new post up giving us a bunch of number-based bits of trivia about the filming of Game of Thrones season three. Here is a sampling:

Check the post for the full list, which includes hard data on such important info like the amount of bottles of hot sauce consumed by David & Dan!

Winter Is Coming: An interesting post! It certainly gives us a sense of just how complex this production is. The really important question still remains unanswered though: are we talking Tapatio or Cholula?

  • First yes!
    Aaah this show really does deserve a big film budget. Can’t some old lady leave [email protected] 50million$ for GOT like what happened with Marvel?

  • wow the costume stats are the most mindboggling: 2000 litres of mentholated spirits, 121,000 rivets, and 31,000 sqft of leather!

  • These numbers are gigantic!!! And these are numbers only to October 5. I hope that they will count everything again on the end of filming and post it to the diary.

    Yeah, if Disney bought Game of Thrones and HBO I guess. But considering that they just bought Star Wars I am betting that they are short on liquid assets. Of course, George would get lasrge cash for the purchase so I bet he would be OK with such a deal! LOL

  • axia777,

    They got that grant long before Disney bought them. It enabled Marvel studios to make Iron Man and launch the Cinematic Universe. Besides I don’t want the words “family friendly” anywhere near GOT.

  • Would have been nice to get the number of extras used. But then the other props didn`t feature much either. Hot sauce and Hula Hoops ???

  • Jordy:
    I guess someone doesn’t know how to factor numbers… 2/8?Seriously?

    It’s a screenwriting thing. Pages are measured in 8ths — and yes, people will say 2/8ths and not 1/4.

  • Tapatío and Cholula are both terrible and not actually hot – for the sake of Season 3, I hope they’ve been consuming better hot sauces! :D

  • Cary Storm,

    I can only remember seeing your posts over the past several months. If you were here before then I apologize for my not paying attention. :-)

  • As much as I’m looking to The RW, I’m as excited about the part with Stannis and Melisandre where they toss the leeches, fat with Kingsblood, onto the fire as he says those names… I hope that happens in the episode before The RW and then end that episode with Balon falling from the bridge! Viewers will be like “Shit just got real!”
