HBO has released the new trailer for the wildly anticipated 10-episode 6th season of “Game of Thrones”.
Based on George R.R. Martin’s popular book series “A Song of Ice and Fire”, HBO’s Emmy-winning fantasy series chronicles an epic struggle for power in a vast and violent kingdom.
For the first time in history, “Game of Thrones” (the show) will finally overtake the books. So nobody really knows what to expect, especially not the book readers, because “The Winds of Winter” is not finished yet. Hence, fans have been holding on to every teaser and every trailer for answers to what “Game of Thrones” S5 left behind.
The S6 trailer opens with a scene from Castle Black, where we see a still-bleeding body of Jon Snow. Because HBO really wants you to believe that he’s dead. Then, we see a ship bearing the House Martell sigil sailing towards King’s Landing, presumably Jamie Lannister returning from Dorne with the corpse of his and Cersei’s illegitimate daughter, Myrcella, on board. And somewhere along the way in the trailer, Daenerys looking defeated as she walks alongside thousands of Dothraki.
The soundtrack then picks up and we see shots of armies at war, sex, the House of Black and White, dragons, before the trailer comes to an end with a grown up version of Bran Stark about to face off against a White Walker.
Sure, it doesn’t give us a lot of answers, but it’s enough to steer us back into excitement in anticipation of 25th April.
“Game of Thrones” premieres in Malaysia the same time as the US – exclusively on HBO (Astro Ch 411/431) on 25th April at 9am, with a same day primetime encore at 9pm. The series will also be available on Astro On The Go.
Meanwhile, go behind-the-scenes in the “Game of Thrones” featurette titled, “The Best Seat in the House” here.
