RIP First Groot
Um, spoiler warning? Anyway, in case there was any doubt - and it seems there was - Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn has confirmed that new Groot, AKA Baby Groot, is a whole new Groot.

Winter is leaking in Game of Thrones shots
The latest leak from the Game of Throne's season 8 pipe is a bunch of shots that seem to show the aftermath of a big battle. You can see them all at the GoTlike Locations Twitter account but the TLDR notes are snow, corpses, Winterfell castle and some shadowy figures.
Went from Toomebridge to Ballymena on Thursday afternoon. A lot of activity near Moneyglass. Sorry for the poor quality of the pics, it was almost dark and no way to stop. Cannot say what was lying on that "snow-covered" lawn but my guess would be corpses. pic.twitter.com/cAf7sF3ZlLFebruary 24, 2018
