HBO has issued an official statement regarding the infamous scene from last night’s episode of Game of Thrones featuring a Starbucks cup.
Game of Thrones is on a very wild ride recently after featuring the most darkest and longest fights in film and television history and now the infamous Starbucks cup. In last night’s Game of Thrones episode “The Last Of The Starks,” there was a brief moment in which many fans spotted something out of the ordinary. While Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys was sitting during a scene there was a small cup of Starbucks sitting right next to her on the table. It was very hard to miss as the table really did not have much around and fans have now created various memes and edited image of the infamous scene. Now, HBO’s official Game of Thrones Twitter account has released a statement regarding the incident which you can see below.

Someone got the order wrong and Daenerys received a cup of coffee rather than herbal tea. HBO has played along with the joke as there is no doubt that a mistake was made during filming. It is a nice statement coming from HBO as Game of Thrones is currently one of their biggest properties. The production for Game of Thrones‘ final season has been the show’s biggest, so perhaps there was a mishap due to a tough schedule. Though a small incident, this may be one of the big highlights from Game of Thrones‘ final season following a brilliant response from HBO.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
