New ‘Game of Thrones’ Trailer Wants to Destroy Everything You Love
Seriously, are they trying to kill us? How many more 'Game of Thrones' trailers can HBO possibly release before the show returns for a second season on Sunday, April 1? Or perhaps the second season really is an April Fools' prank, and the excessive amount of trailers is HBO's way of really tuning up the hype?
After last week's exceptionally effective "Seven Devils" trailer that utilized an indie-pop track from UK rockers Florence and the Machine, HBO has seen fit to release yet another trailer for season 2 of 'Game of Thrones,' this time focusing on the various relationships that cause conflict throughout the coming season, based on the George R.R. Martin 'A Song of Ice and Fire' novel 'A Clash of Kings'.
In the latest look, among new characters you'll see Robb Stark (Richard Madden) inheriting his father's duties and blocking his romance of new character Jeyne Westerling (Oona Chaplin), as well as Tyrion Lannister's continued romance of Shae against his father Tywin's wishes, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) maintaining subservience to the vile King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), and even Jorah Mormont (Iain Glenn) looking at Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) with a little more than humble service in his eyes!
But as Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) reminds us, "the more people you love, the weaker you are." And what better way to get that point across than by slapping Joffrey across the face? We swear, someone should do that at least once an episode.
Take a look at the new trailer below, and start preparing yourself, for war is coming in 'Game of Thrones' season 2, Sunday April 1 at 9:00 p.m.!
