Brand New Game of Thrones Trailer Released

January 18, 2011 by  

HBO Releases a Sneak Peek:

Fans eagerly awaiting HBO‘s new series Game of Thrones were treated to a brand-new trailer this weekend, and it was full of exciting reveals. HBO Game of Thrones Iron Throne There were extensive views of the Iron Throne, the much contested, yet remarkably uncomfortable, throne of the ruler of Westeros. The trailer is a round of musical chairs, except there is only one seat, and all the players want it. Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Jaimie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy), Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Eddard Stark (Sean Bean), Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley), and Petyr Baelish (Aiden Gillen) all take their turns at the throne. Now, we don’t know which of them is actually vying for the seat (unless, of course, you have read George R.R. Martin‘s epic novels) but there is clearly some tension amongst all of them.

This must be the most terrifying throne ever – and yet it is a much desired place of honor. The throne has just as much of a role in the books as do the main characters, and it certainly looks like HBO is sticking with that theme. The overall feel of the trailer is very suspenseful, very dark, very moody. If you haven’t watched it yet, check it out below! And keep waiting – April 17 will be here soon.

    I have now finished all of the books, and am very much anticipating the series. I heard that the fifth book in the series may be released when Game of Thrones is broadcast on HBO. I can hardly wait!
