‘The New Game Of Thrones’ Teaser Is Lit
They’re not messing around
If you’re interested in having your heart stop for about 90 seconds, we suggest watching HBO’s just-released promo for the ravenously anticipated upcoming season of Game of Thrones. While it doesn’t contain any actual footage from the upcoming season, it is an epically constructed tease of the upcoming battle of the wills (and dragons) that will culminate in the show’s endgame. The clip cuts between the show’s three main players—Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow, and Daenerys Targaryen—as they walk, stone-faced, to their respective thrones.
Cersei, of course, is in the Red Keep, sitting on the throne the others covet. Jon Snow, as the new King of the North, has his throne room in Winterfell. As for Dany, she claims a previously unseen throne in an unfamiliar room. The clip, which is called “Long Walk,” ends with an extreme close-up of the Night King, because as they will not let us forget: winter is coming. The seventh season of Game of Thrones premieres on July 16. Watch the trailer above.
