New 'Game of Thrones' Trailer Sets Stage for Epic Battle in Westeros

"'Game of Thrones" has become synonymous with tortuously slow and vague trailers in the lead up to each season, and the latest clip is no different. HBO has started the hype machine, as if it even needs to, for the series by releasing the first Game of Thrones season 7 teaser trailer.

Once installed in these command rooms, Games of Thrones, Kit Harington, Lena Headey and Emilia Clarke cast a glance that seems to announce that the war is indeed declared. A set of candles blow out, and Cersei exhales so we can see her breath, meaning it's already quite cold in King's Landing.

"Thrones" returns July 16, 2017 for its penultimate, seven-episode season. Jon Snow (or Stark / Targaryen depending on your perspective) is walking into the main hall of Winterfell and Daenerys Targaryen is walking towards some throne that has never been seen before now.

O'Rourke to Announce Cruz Challenge on Friday
Hardly anyone in state or national politics considers it realistic that the national party will heavily invest in this race. The two congressmen live-streamed the road trip from Texas to Washington on Facebook Live, the Huffington Post reported .

An eerie remix of the "90s alt-rock hit 'Sit Down" by James is played in the background throughout the footage as if the content was not chilling enough. Ever since its release, it has a massive worldwide fan following and has bagged various awards over the last couple of years.

Cersei appears upon the Iron Throne in King's Landing, which she captured in explosive fashion at the end of Season 6, eliminating almost all of her political adversaries in one decisive blow. Daenerys, surprisingly, sits at another throne.

The trailer then ended with a close-up shot of the terrifying Night King's icy blue eye, which whipped fans into a frenzy. Will Cersei, Jon and Dany join forces for the good of Westeros against the Night King's army, which is now descending from Beyond the Wall?
