First Look: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Trailer
Entertainment| | By Jason Owen
“You’re in the game now…and the great game is terrifying.”
On Tuesday, HBO unveiled the long-awaited first look of the sixth season of its hit show Game of Thrones.
The two-minute video is accompanied with the song, “Wicked Game,” performed by James Vincent McMorrow, as it shifts quickly between heroes and villains and the dire situations facing each before the impending war.
Anticipation for the new season has been exceptionally high this year, as for the first time, the show will surpass the storyline that has been revealed in the books. Author George R. R. Martin reportedly missed his deadline to finish the sixth book, The Winds of Winter, and it will not be published before the start of the new TV season. So, fans who have read the books no longer have advanced knowledge of any of the plot lines, or for that matter, the surprising twists we’ve come to love (and kind of hate).
Game of Thrones season six premieres April 24 on HBO.
