From Crossover Spy Cartoons to Fantasy Wolf Breads

 - Aug 26, 2017
As with tree fruit ready for the harvest, summer is a ripe time for pop culture, and the August 2017 pop culture trends reflect that verdant terrain. Summer blockbusters bring movie fans out in droves, TV networks save their top performing shows to compete, and musicians are out touring, giving more than enough entertainment for willing pop culture consumers.

Game of Thrones' penultimate season is currently on air, and even a quick glance at the pop culture trends makes that clear. Businesses are capitalizing on the massive popularity of the fantasy series with things like jewelry collections based on characters' attire, cakes fashioned after key set pieces, and bread baked to mimic a scene from the previous season.

Fortunately, pop culture has been expanding its range of depictions in recent years, and the Toronto International Film Festival has even stepped up to create a fund helping women in the industry tell their stories.
