The first full trailer for the upcoming third season of HBO’s wildly popular drama series Game of Thrones will premiere tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but a tantalizing new poster for season three has been unveiled in advance of the trailer drop. One assumes this is the official poster for season three (the first one only had a date, so it’s technically a teaser poster), and if so then this teases some major developments for Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen aka “Mother of Dragons” in the coming season. It appears that we may or may not see some maturation from Targaryen’s tiny dragons, as the poster shows one of them in flight. I haven’t read the books so I don’t know how soon said dragons start becoming monstrous creatures, but season three of the series is poised to cover approximately the first half of the third book in George R.R. Martin’s series, A Storm of Swords.
Hit the jump to get a look at the poster, and check back here on Collider tonight to see the first full trailer for season three. Game of Thrones returns on March 31st on HBO.
Here’s the teaser trailer for the trailer, followed by the new poster:
While it's admirable to put yourself in harm's way in the defense of others, that altruism eventually ends with a blade between the ribs or being thrown into a prison cell. George R.R. Martin's gift to his characters just keeps on giving.
In the first Red Nose Day special on American shores (benefitting the charity Comic Relief), celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Anna Kendrick, and even Kermit the Frog all showed up to participate in the live telecast.
