The Game of Thrones season 5 trailer is here! HBO released it today; some audiences saw it over the weekend attached to the IMAX presentations of two season 4 episodes. Now everyone can enjoy all the fighting, intrigue, and mysterious idols being yanked off pyramids.
There looks to be major emphasis on the women of Westeros this season, with Littlefinger telling a teary Sansa Stark to “avenge them”; Daenerys proclaiming, “I’m not going to stop the wheel, I’m going to break the wheel”; our first look at the Sand Snakes (!); and Arya picking up her sword, Needle.
Not to mention an escaped Tyrion landing on a distant shore and plotting with Varys to put a proper ruler on the Iron Throne:
“The Seven Kingdoms needs a ruler loved by millions, with a powerful army and the right family name.”
“Good luck finding him.”
“Who said anything about him?”
AW YEAH DAENERYS. Best of all, it’s all set to a slowed-down cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes”:
Game of Thrones returns on April 12!
