HBO Releases Game of Thrones Season 2 Trailers
I have to begin by saying that if you haven't gotten your hands on a copy of George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones, the first novel in the epic series A Song of Ice and Fire, go now. Run already.
Not in the mood to read a series written by a man referred to by Time Magazine as "America's Tolkein"? Then hitch a ride on the first season of HBO's miniseries based on the novels. Released last year, the highly addicting, beautifully wrought 10-part series covers the entire first novel, and has been called, tongue-in-cheek, the Sopranos of Middle Earth. I have to say this for it...
You'll be absolutely riveted, and the last five minutes of last season's final episode will leave you gasping for air.
Like so many other displaced viewers, I've been just miserable, waiting both for HBO's latest offerings, as well as books 6 and 7, still in the process of being written.
You need to hurry up and watch, because season two is coming, and the trailers are looking pretty damn sweet. I've brought them all together here, in case you're already A Game of Thrones addict and simply can't wait for next month's dose.
The original season two trailer, named Cold Winds, released on Dec. 9th, promises more intrigue, as royal family sets itself upon family in pursuit of Westeros' pain-riddled throne of swords. The Lannisters' hold on King's Landing begins to loosen, as the brothers of dead King Robert attempt to exercise their right to the throne.
In the trailer entitled Shadow, released on Jan. 29th, court advisor Varys spins a spider web of a tale, of continued struggles for power between royal families, his attentions finally falling on a very pivotal role for one devious, little Tyrion Lannister.Continued on the next page
