We’ve already seen a few different trailers for HBO’s epic new fantasy series Game of Thrones, but the cable network has released yet another one. This one is much more like a movie trailer than the previous trailers and it continues to get my excited to check out this series when it finally hits the network on April 17th. Based on George R.R. Martin’s fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire the sprawling tale set in the mythical land of Westeros tells the story of the noble Stark family who become caught up in high court intrigue when patriarch Eddard (played by Sean Bean) becomes the king’s new right-hand man.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Game of Thrones also stars Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Mark Addy, Kit Harrington, and Tamzin Merchant.
HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones is promising to be unlike anything else on TV. While there have been TV shows that take place in a fantasy realm, Thrones looks like it will have a scope far beyond sword-fighting in a forest and not using contractions. HBO has released a new preview of the show that takes a look at the setting and the various lands and environs the characters inhabit. After watching this preview, I couldn’t help but wonder how this information will be introduced organically into the show.
Hit the jump to check out the preview. Game of Thrones stars Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, Mark Addy, Kit Harrington, and Tamzin Merchant. The series premieres April 17th.
Focus Features has released the first images from director Cary Fukunaga’s (Sin Nombre) Jane Eyre and Lone Scherfig’s (An Education) One Day. Jane Eyre is based on Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel and it stars Mia Wasikowska, Michael Fassbender, Jamie Bell, Holliday Grainger, Sally Hawkins, Tamzin Merchant, Imogen Poots, and Judi Dench. One Day is adapted from the internationally praised bestselling novel by David Nicholls and it stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess as two people who meet on the night of their college graduation (July 15th, 1988). “For the next two decades, every July 15th reveals to us how [they] are faring, as their friendship ebbs and flows with the passing of the years.”
