Game Of Thrones season 8: yet another teaser trailer arrives

HBO has broadcast another teaser trailer for Game Of Thrones season 8, with this one showing the aftermath of a big battle at Winterfell. You can watch the brand new teaser here…

The moody video, which has popped up on the official Game Of Thrones YouTube channel, showcases loads of detritus at Winterfell – including Jon Snow’s Longclaw sword, which just seems to be lying around. Could this be a hint that the battle between the armies of men and the White Walkers  won’t end well for the Starks?

Without further ado, here’s the clip…

And here’s another recent teaser, which shows off the visual effects work on the show…

Before that, a proper teaser trailer arrive on the web. Full disclosure: the video quality here isn’t amazing, because a fan has quite literally taped this Game Of Thrones season 8 trailer right off the telly. If you’re old enough to remember watching a lot of lo-fi footage in the early days of the internet, though, this shouldn’t be to much of a problem.

Here’s the vid…

“We must fight together now, or die” says Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister, in a standout moment from the footage. We also hear familiar dialogue from Kit Harington’s Jon Snow, who is banging on about how the White Walkers don’t tire.

We see ships sailing with soldiers, dragons swooping over Winterfell, and a lovely plait demanding attention on the back of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen’s head. We see Leaney Heady’s Cersei and Rory McCann’s Sandor Clegane, very briefly, both looking very serious.

These tantalising glimpses are enough to increase our hype levels significantly, and there isn’t long to wait now: Game Of Thrones season 8 will premiere on HBO on April 14th.
