First ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Trailer Makes “Heroes” of Tyrion and Daenerys


Piece by piece, ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 has unveiled new looks at its HBO premiere, and with “The Watchers on the Wallnow raging in IMAX, the newest season 5 sneak is bigger than ever. Feast your eyes on the spoilery, statue-toppling full trailer for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5, online at long last!

Set to a haunting rendition of David Bowie’s “Heroes,” the new ‘Game of Thrones’ trailer brings an incredible amount to take in, teasing new paths and challenges for near of the entire cast. At quick glances, we caught some freaky-looking men in gold masks causing chaos, Littlefinger encouraging Sansa to seek vengeance, Margaery’s wedding 2.0, Jorah getting down and dirty in some pit-fighting, Missandei and Grey Worm just plain getting down, and plenty of looks at the Sand Snakes of Dorne.

But that’s not all! Arya also makes her way to a mysterious door of black and white, practicing her swordplay in the meantime, while Varys urges Tyrion to help seat a more favorable ruler on the throne, and not a “him.” Cue badass Daenerys, warning “I’m not going to stop the wheel, I’m going to break the wheel.” Get it, girl! Or not. That money shot of the Mereen pyramid’s gold statue crashing to the ground doesn’t look so friendly for the Mother of Dragons.

Elsewhere of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 (already renewed for 6, with the cast signed through 7), we know of multiple returning, confirmed absent, and new characters cast, including those that confirm we’ll be visiting the oft-mentioned kingdom of Dorne, for which Spain will double. The story will draw heavily from George R.R. Martin’s fourth and fifth novels, ‘A Feast for Crows’ and ‘A Dance with Dragons,’ while HBO has also provided a list of directors, as well as insight into which literary stories may not make the transition to film.

We’ll have plenty more footage and photos from ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5 in the months leading up to its April 12 premiere, but what say you? Does the first full trailer for year 5 of HBO’s fantasy drama have you hooked? Watch it a bajillion more times above, and give us your predictions in the comments!
