These 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 episodes will be movies

HBO has confirmed that the first two episodes of the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones" will be slightly shorter than the rest.

Following the release earlier this month of a trailer that unsurprisingly served to amp up fan excitement even more for season 8, here without further ado are the details for each of the season's episodes. However, the third episode and onward leap into cinematic territory with the final episodes pushing nearly an hour and a half each. Of course, the most important thing here is that the episodes are the right length - enough for character moments, those epic battles we're all waiting for, and without bulk for the sake of bulk. The longest episode of the season actually comes halfway through, with April 28's episode 3.

North Korea claimed it had only requested a partial lifting of the sanctions. "We'll look at ramping those sanctions up in fact", Bolton said.

To save you a trip to your local calculator, that all totals to 432 minutes (or 7 hours and 12 minutes) of unbridled Game of Thrones goodness.

According to the press release from HBO, the first two episodes of the season - airing April 14 and 21 - run at a little under an hour, which is not all that different from past episodes. HBO has been pretty upfront with its plans to create a Game of Thrones prequel series, which is set thousands of years before the events of the current show and stars Naomi Watts in the leading role. We can't wait to see what Game of Thrones season 8 has in store, but you can bet that you won't be left wanting after the credits roll for the last time.
