QuickClick: Princess Bride Gets Mixed with Game of Thrones
03.18.13 by Ryan
Those who have read George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels know that the length might be a little too much for a grandfather to attempt to read to his sick grandson, especially when one considers that the first two books were each adapted into two full seasons of HBO's Game of Thrones. Still, that hasn't stopped the juxtaposition of The Princess Bride with the hit TV show. In fact, it's one of the jokes of the mashed-up trailer, which sees Peter Falk read Game of Thrones to his grandson (Fred Savage), replacing the story of Westley, Buttercup and Prince Humperdinck with that of Ned Stark and Prince Joffrey, but to similar results.
