Game of Thrones whipped fans into a fiery frenzy with its second full trailer for Season 6, revealing several surprise returns and the biggest dragons yet, among other Snow-y secrets. We couldn’t help but dive way deeper into each frame of footage. So what new secrets of Game of Thrones Season 6 were hidden in the flames?
What, you thought one clip and a new full-length trailer were enough Game of Thrones for one day? We’ll see it, and raise you three new Season 6 clips, as we learn what became of Sansa and Theon at Winterfell, how Cersei’s handling the bad news about Myrcella, and more!
Game of Thrones has been less than kind to even the strongest of female characters over the years, and if a new report is to be believed, Season 6 might finally see the women of Westeros come out ahead. New Entertainment Weekly covers reveal the six major heroines of the new season, some looking far better off than we last left them.
They warned us we’d be teased, and Game of Thrones Season 6 wasn’t kidding around. The first footage teaser for the new 2016 season has arrived with HBO’s Vinyl, bringing back some majorly familiar faces, but has the big Jon Snow question finally been answered at last?
HBO has been cranking up the Game of Thrones marketing early for Season 6, first a poster, then a trailer teasing Jon Snow’s return, and before 2015 is even out, we’ve been blessed with the first footage. See Dany’s new digs, and Cersei’s new ‘do in the first official Game of Thrones Season 6 footage!
Following the debut of the first teaser a couple of weeks ago comes the first full trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith’s mashup that combines — well, the title makes it obvious, no? Corsets, zombies, proper ladies training themselves in the art of war…it’s all just sort of delightfully bonkers. Here’s hoping the full film can live up to the insanity of the trailers.
“Oh great, another Jane Austen adaptation,” may be one of your thoughts during the first 30 seconds of the debut trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. “Fantastic, more British women in bonnets talking about books.” But wait, you totally forgot about the last word in the film’s title. ZOMBIES, BABY!
Sometimes I wonder if we know what to do with Patrick Wilson. It’s rare that he’s utilized well, but when he is, Wilson is excellent to watch. The Conjuring, Little Children and Girls all put Wilson’s talents to good use, but then there’s stuff like Zipper…which doesn’t quite seem like the best use of his time. The new trailer showcases a so-so thriller that looks like Shame meets The Ides of March.
One of the most harrowing moments of the Season 5 Game of Thrones finale (of which, there were many) was Cersei’s walk of shame as the Queen Mother was forced to walk, naked, through the streets of King’s Landing as punishment for confessing adultery with her cousin, Lancel Lannister. It was a powerful scene, one that sparked immediate appreciation for actress Lena Headey’s performance. But, there’s someone else who should also get some credit: body double Rebecca Van Cleave, who actually performed the walk naked on set.
Game of Thrones Season 5 has come to the close of its most brutal season yet, dispensing precious little “Mother’s Mercy” on any of its core characters. Major, major characters suffered the pointy end of a blade, while others met surprise ends, stripped away their sins, or made a surprise return. Find out every character’s fate by our full review!
