To celebrate the first day of summer yesterday, the twisted folks over at HBO released this new trailer for Game of Thrones' seventh season titled "Winter is Here!" For the last six years we've been hearing warnings about winter coming, and it looks as if it's finally here, and fans of the show are beside themselves at the prospect of what that means for all of our favorite denizens of Westeros.
Like any great trailer, this one leaves us wanting oh so much more than what we get. It's also a lot more action packed than the last trailer, showing dragons in flight, white walkers laying siege, and lots of contemplative "who farted" face from Sophie Turner's Sansa Stark. Don't get me wrong, I love that character, but she has spent the entirety of this series with that "who farted" face, aka "Twilight face."
But I digress. There's so much exciting stuff here to get you pumped for the season seven premiere on July 16. Don't be surprised if you find yourself hitting play again the minute it ends. There's no way to absorb it all in one viewing, and I wouldn't recommend trying anyway. The ball is in HBO's court, and it looks like they're going for a slam dunk.
