New trailer for HBO's Game of Thrones Season 7 satisfies


Winter is here on July 16

It's been roughly a month since the last trailer for HBO's Game of Thrones dropped, but when you're hotly anticipating one of the best shows on TV, that wait can become an agonizing struggle. On top of that, GoT is premiering in summer rather than spring this year because of being delayed. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss cited needing to film in winter as the main cause (makes sense), but that wasn't going to make the wait any better. Thankfully, HBO released their second trailer for GoT Season 7 today, making the wait that much more bearable. It's the perfect kind of trailer, the kind that glimpses never before seen footage of the unsullied storming a major city, and of dragon-fire raining down on ships. There are even some story hints here, not enough to give away the plot, but enough to show us that yes, all the incredible characters and story-lines we've fallen in love with are about to smash into each other with nothing held back.


One thing HBO has the ability to do is pump as much cash as needed into their projects, and if the trailer is anything like the finished product, they've done that once again for GoT. The camera work is excellent, several shots from the trailer stick out in my memory even now, and those CGI dragons keep becoming more and more realistic. It's good to know that one of the best shows on TV is being spared no expense. We'll have to wait a few more weeks to see whether or not it pays off, but if it's anything like Season 6, we're in for a real treat.

Game of Thrones Season 7 will premiere July 16, 2017 on HBO.
