If there’s anything HBO does best, it’s promo.
It’s newest Game of Thrones season 7 trailer released today featuring our three main players Jon (Kit Harington), Dany (Emilia Clarke) and Cersei (Lena Headey) walking through harrowed halls, sitting on empty thrones and staring intensely at the camera as the appropriately titled track “Sit Down” looms in the background.
Like HBO’s first Thrones trailer for the upcoming season, absolutely nothing happens in this trailer. No actual footage of the new season and, yet, the hype is all to real as we get a glimpse into the triangular power struggle between the new King of the North, the crowned Queen of Westeros and the Mother of Dragons that will most likely dominate the new season.
It’s not all about who holds the crown though. Like in the first teaser, it all ends the same with our beloved characters trapped in the ominous blue eye of the impending war between the living and the dead.
Game of Thrones returns July 16, 9/8c on HBO
