"There has been some chatter, given Game of Thrones‘ gargantuan and pop culture-dominating success, that the last season could in part (like the premiere and/or finale) or in full be shown as a theatrical release. In an interview for THR, HBO's president of programming Casey Bloys speaks to that specifically with a resounding no. "This is for subscribers," Bloys stressed, ruling out an IMAX or any kind of theater release.

Bloys also spoke at length about the potential spinoffs, or prequel series as they're currently being referred to. None of it is particularly new information, though — we already knew that there are four stories being pitched, none of which have been presented to the network yet, from Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass), Brian Helgeland (Legend) and Carly Wray (The Leftovers). A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin will be working on two of them, and clarified some of the potential content (no Dunk and Egg, for instance) back in May…"

Prequels are distracting George from finishing the books.
Not that anybody cares any more.

I have a bad feeling about the prequels. You can't catch lightning in a bottle twice. Nor will the interest be there among the wider public. Just True Fans will care. They are like ACW fans who think Hollywood should do a movie about Murfreesboro.
I think they will be second rate productions, since D&D, real fans, will be gone.
Dunk and Egg stories? George has written 3 of them and wants to write 7 more. something like that. I've seen this show before. grin

If they're not on opposite Sunday Night NFL, I might catch them.

Keep in mind that most posters on TM predicted the original serias would fail and then renewed the prediction after Ned Stark's death.

Few had read the books (which will be run away best sellers when they [finally!] appear).

By the way my son managed to put the Prince of Dorne on the Iron Throne at Historicon – so no telling how things will turn out.
