HBO’s Game of Thrones looks like it’s marching to the drums of war.
The season seven trailer looks darker and spookier than ever—even for a series not exactly known for its optimistic, colourful outlook on life.
I won’t dare spoil the trailer, but it’s a real appetite-whetter. Check it out.
Game of Thrones is based off of George RR Martin’s fantastic (pun intended) book series A Song of Ice and Fire. The show is ahead of the books, time-wise, which last saw an entry with 2011’s A Dance with Dragons, the fifth book in the series, and which, chronologically, mostly covered the same time period as the fourth book, A Feast for Crows (2005), did—only from the eyes of a different set of characters.
The series was adapted for television by David Benioff (City of Thieves) and DB Weiss (Lucky Wander Boy).
Earlier this year, HBO confirmed it was developing four potential spin-offs from what’s become their flagship show.
For now, the fight for Westeros is on. And, as one of the show’s more morally ambiguous characters likes to say:
When you play the game of thrones, you either win...or you die.
Game of Thrones returns July 16th. Can’t wait.
