GAME OF THRONES releases the first trailer for Season 5.
HBO debuted its GAME OF THRONES Season 5 trailer during IMAX screens last night. Now, it’s available for all to see!
The trailer begins with Jaime Lannister keeping vigil over the body of his father, Tywin, in the Great Sept, following the Lannister patriarch’s death at the hands of his son, Tyrion.
Elsewhere, Tyrion has emerged on the other side of the Narrow Sea and catches up with Varys, who seems to be working towards Daenerys Targaryen’s return to Westeros so that she can claim the Iron Throne: “The Seven Kingdoms needs a ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name,” Varys observes knowingly.
“Good luck finding him,” Tyrion responds.
“Who said anything about him?” Varys smirks.
Other notable scenes include the wedding of Margaery Tyrell to Tommen Baratheon and the introducing of the Sand Snakes aka Oberyn Martell’s illegitimate daughters: Nymeria, Tyene, and Obara.
The trailer has the same dark, foreboding tone that we’ve come to expect from the series, but it’s still as exciting as ever!
