Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who died within a day of one another last week — at ages 60 and 84, respectively — had a mother-daughter relationship like no other. Fisher often joked that she and her mother, next-door neighbors in Beverly Hills, were living in a reality show. The Bright Lights trailer shows a few moments that back up her quip — Fisher chiding Reynolds about her ancient cell phone, the two picking out an outfit for Reynolds’ cabaret show — but also hints at a deeper look at the family’s complicated history.
Game of Thrones is getting gamified for San Diego Comic-Con. To acquaint Westeros wannabes with the myriad Thrones merchandise, HBO is sending fans on a quest (#GoTScavengerHunt) through the convention center and surrounding environs to find and photograph select products — everything from a frighteningly realistic (and pricey) Night King mask to Dany’s dragon choker to a collection of plush direwolves. The latter is among the exclusive collectibles that will only be available at Comic-Con.

A year after the Season 5 finale that launched a thousand fan theories, Game of Thrones is preparing to enter new territory in its sixth season, which debuts Sunday, April 24 on HBO. For the first time in its history, the series will venture completely off book, as the writers have lapped the release of author George R.R. Martin’s final two novels.
