game of thrones series 7 4

HBO might have four 'Game of Thrones' spinoffs in the works, but so far it's resisted calls to make a film based on the hit series.

However, fans are about to get the next best thing: the finale of series seven will run a whopping 81 minutes, putting it firmly in bonafide feature-length film territory.

That makes it the longest ever episode of the series.

Episode lengths were revealed by fan site Watchers on the Wall. Episode seven isn't the only one to top the hour mark: episode six is 71 minutes long, and episode three 63 minutes.

In total, series seven will last seven hours and 20 minutes. The series consists of fewer episodes than previous series, however: just seven, down from the usual 10.

The penultimate series of the hit fantasy drama starts on 17th July at 2am on Sky Atlantic. If you don't fancy staying up, you can catch it on-demand, or it'll be repeated at 9pm that night on the same channel. It's also available on Now TV, Sky's contract-free streaming service.

In other 'Game of Thrones' news, HBO has released a new featurette based on the costumes in the show. You can see it below.
