Fans willing to brave the cold and get to the theater last night got to see the very first Game of Thrones Season 5 trailer in IMAX. The rest of us will have to settle for watching it on YouTube today. Which isn’t so bad, all things considered.

UPDATE: An official version of the Season 5 trailer has just been posted; check it out below. Read More »
