We knew that great Game of Thrones poster featuring Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) staring up at one of Daenerys’ dragons was just a preface to seeing the real scene in action, and the incredible new Game of Thrones season 5 trailer does not disappoint.
In addition to giving us the moving version of that poster, there’s all sorts of great new footage here, including (but hardly limited to) the “breaking the wheel” monologue from Daenerys, in which she promises doom for the cycle of family violence that has defined politics in Westeros, and more footage of Jonathan Pryce’s character the High Sparrow. I was already excited for this new season of the show, but this footage is kicking that interest into overdrive. Read More »

A new Game of Thrones season 5 poster is out, along with a couple of new clips. The poster is striking, because it features Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) standing on the prow of a ship, staring up at one of Daenerys’ dragons. And the clips are solid, because one features the hint of a little conversational conflict, while the other marks the return of fan-favorite character Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). See it all below. Read More »

Game of Thrones the show is all gloom and doom. If you’re unlucky, you’re poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death. If you’re really unlucky, you’re suffering a torment worse than death itself. And even if you are kinda lucky, all it means is that you can look forward to getting poisoned or stabbed or head-exploded to death on a different day.
Game of Thrones the set, however, is a different story. As a new blooper reel reveals, the actors are having a much better time than the characters they’re portraying, whether they’re giggling over flubbed lines or dealing with an unruly cat. Watch the Game of Thrones Season 4 blooper reel after the jump. Read More »

Part of the fun of Game of Thrones is that you never really know who’s going to die next. That is, unless you’ve read the books — then you already have a pretty good idea of who’ll survive or perish. But George R.R. Martin warns that won’t be forever.
The author teased that the upcoming season of Game of Thrones will kill off characters who remain alive in the books, calling out the producers for being “even bloodier” than he is. More on the Game of Thrones character deaths after the jump. Read More »

Friday brought us the first real trailer for Game of Thrones Season 5, but if you still can’t get enough we also have a batch of hi-res photos for you to feast your eyes on.

On top of all that, there’s also a pair of featurettes showing how Game of Thrones went from the small screen to not just the big screen, but the biggest screens in the world. Check out the Game of Thrones Season 5 images and Game of Thrones IMAX featurettes after the jump. Read More »

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.
The two-minute promo is positively packed with footage from the new season, and just about every fan-favorite character gets a moment. (Well, the ones who survived Season 4, anyway.) Intriguingly, they also suggest the show will continue to stray even further from George R.R. Martin‘s original novels. Watch the first Game of Thrones Season 5 trailer after the jump.
UPDATE: An official version of the Season 5 trailer has just been posted; check it out below. Read More »
