The new Game of Thrones trailer was officially released later today, after already circling the internet from leaked footage provided by the attendees of GOT’s IMAX experience.
The trailer gives us glimpses of what is to come in season 5. It also is set to a cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes”, which sadly is not The Wallflowers version (missed opportunity, I guess).
Tyrion has made it through his journey of escaping execution. He speaks with Varys over the unlikeliness of him ever returning to his home, while Varys urges him to help find a new leader. “The Seven Kingdoms needs a ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name.” To which Tyrion quips “Good luck finding him.” “Who said anything about him?” Varys asks.
We also see Littlefinger creepily grip Sansa’s face as he tells her to avenge her family members. Cersei is displeased with Tyrion’s escape act and it looks like she wants Jaime to find him. Ayra has made it safely to Braavos. Danyerys looks fearless as ever. Along with the many shots of blood, sex, and battle. Just another day for Game of Thrones.
Season 5 starts April 12th on HBO.
