Under a month until the new season of Game of Thrones hits the small screens, and the HBO marketing juggernaut is now in full flow.
For those of you living under a rock in 2011 who haven’t heard of this excellent TV show, Game of Thrones is a fantasy epic based on the wonderful A Song of Ice And Fire books by George RR Martin (A Game of Thrones is actually the title of the first book in the series).
The TV show thankfully lived up to all expectations (especially for the multitude of devoted fans out there) with an amazingly well-chosen cast, typically huge HBO production values and of course great writing (ably assisted by Martin himself).
To be honest, I don’t think they could have done it better.
Season 2 sees numerous new characters (many of whom have since become firm fan favourites) and storylines being introduced. Crucial characters such as Stannos Baratheon, Melisandre, Davos Seaworth, Brienne the Beauty, Balon Greyjoy and Margaery Tyrell (to name but a few) will all make their first appearances in season 2.
So, take a look at the newest trailer – called Seven Devils – and start counting down the days to April 1st.
