HBO has just given a major boost to the marketing campaign for their new series “Game of Thrones.” The series is based on the fantasy novels written by George R. R. Martin and have been adapted for television by D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. The latest trailer for the show concentrates of the characters and the power struggles between them. Check it out…
Between “Game of Thrones” and “Camelot” on Starz, we’re not sure what new show we want to watch. Both of them contain elements of fantasy, both feature greed and desire, but only one of them has a bad ass white wolf. That’s something “Game of Thrones” has the upper hand with. It also stars Lena Headey and Sean Bean, which by themselves are two reasons to tune in!
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.
Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.
“Game of Thrones” will premiere on HBO on April 17.
