Let’s start with the bad news: George R. R. Martin’s publisher has said that there will not be a new Song of Ice and Fire book in 2015. IT’S NOT EVEN FEBRUARY AND ALREADY MY DREAMS HAVE BEEN SQUASHED AND BLENDED AND PUT INTO A STUPID KALE-FILLED SMOOTHIE.
Thankfully, we have HBO’s Game of Thrones to keep us moderately sane, although at this point it’s all but certain that HBO will reveal the ending of the series and that kind of breaks my heart. BUT HEY! Season 5 starts back up in April 12th (of 2015) and some lucky soul who attended the IMAX debut last night leaked this trailer for all of us internet nerds to pick apart for weeks on end:
What are we thinking? What strikes you first in the trailer?
There isn’t anything presented that we haven’t already seen from promo and set stills, but there’s something so thrilling about watching Daenerys put on her badass face with a (mildly frightening) rendition of David Bowie’s “Heroes” in the background. All I know is, April cannot get here soon enough.
