‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 Trailer 2: Purple Weddings, Hot Vengeance and Cold Hands!
Last Sunday brought the 15-minute ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 4 special “Foreshadowing” that gave us our best look yet at the April 6 premiere, growing dragons and all, but who needs all those talking head interviews? Preview the latest fire-breathing, blood-gushing installments of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 with a brand-new trailer of the carnage to come!
There’s a lot to digest with the latest trailer, though it certainly gives us much more to consider than the first time around. Kicking off with Arya’s endless quest for vengeance, we get close looks at Styr, Magnar of Thenn, along with a strong sense of how the Red Wedding reverberates throughout Westeros. We also get our first speech from Stannis Baratheon not wanting to be a forgotten page of history, while Daenerys’ army sacks Mereen with catapults. The final moments showcase a uniquely dressed White Walker, which certainly seems to suggest fan-favorite character Cold Hands in our future, if not exactly the figure we see in the trailer
Apart from the other photos, trailers and teases for the April 6 premiere, HBO has cast in known roles Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma as Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand, Yuri Kolokolnikov as Styr, Magnar of Thenn, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. ‘Treme”s Michiel Huisman will replace Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis, and Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte, among other recastings.
Hopefully HBO will keep bringing the ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 goods with each coming Sunday, but in the meantime, what say you? Tell us your favorite moment from the new trailer, and what you want to see from the April 6 premiere in the comments!
