Tired of ‘Game of Thrones’ Trailers? How About Five More?
Do you remember the most recent 'Game of Thrones' Season 2 posters, that went with a "less-is-more" approach, showing off key items and taglines from the forthcoming season? Well apparently, the folks cutting trailers for the second season of the George R.R. Martin-adapted fantasy series weren't at that meeting.
In addition to the numerous other trailers and behind-the-scenes featurettes previewing characters and storylines from 'Game of Thrones' Season 2, set to debut Sunday, April 1 on HBO, the network has cut an additional five (seriously, five) trailers for release today! Each different, all five trailers focus on a a different faction vying for the Stag Crown of Westeros, including the Baratheons, Starks, Greyjoys, Lannisters, and Daenerys Targaryen.
Once you've seen all five trailers (I'm getting Happy Meal flashbacks) HBO invites you to pledge your allegiance to the house of your choice on the Game of Thrones' Facebook page! Pledging your allegiance to the house of your choice also enters you in the sweepstakes to win exclusive 'Game of Thrones' memorabilia and autographed merchandise.
For those unfamiliar with the fantasy adventure series, season 2 of ‘Game of Thrones’ adapts its story from the second entry of George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series, ‘A Clash of Kings.’ In it, the “War of the Five Kings” begins while different factions vie for the throne of Westeros, left somewhat vacant by the death of King Robert Baratheon, and quickly usurped by his young (suspiciously blonde) son Prince Joffrey.
So are you going to watch all five house trailers in preparation for Season 2 of 'Game of Thrones? I think you are! Check them out below!
First up are the Baratheons, squabbling brothers young Renly and new character Stannis:
Next comes the Greyjoys, particullarly Theon Greyjoy, an understated character from season 1:
Then the Starks, led by Robb Stark in the north, while Jon Snow traverses beyond the wall. Boy, we miss Ned.
Second to last, those wily Lannisters and their incessant paying of their debts. Someone slap that Joffrey!
And finally, sweet, sweet Daenerys Targaryen, and her bountiful...dragons. I was going to say "dragons."
