‘Game of Thrones’ Preview Promises Another Wedding and Vicious Dragons
The new 14-minute video preview of ‘Game of Thrones” upcoming fourth season is so loaded with awesome, we’re not even sure where to begin. And we’re not even sure we can wait until April 6, when the season launches, to see how all this shakes out.
Titled ‘Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing,’ the video preview serves as both a look forward to the new season as well as glance back to all the events leading up to it. At times, the video can be confusing as the show itself — wait . . . who’s wielding that big-ass sword there? — but there are several intriguing teases of what’s in store when things get rolling two very long months from now.
Stuffed with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with cast members and crew, the video is divided into sections — like ‘Debts Are Paid,’ a reference to the massive blood-spilling that ended season three — that focus on the typically labyrinthine plot twists planned for this season. You can watch it above.
So yeah, there’s gonna be lots of revenge and lots of blood staining stone this season. Last year’s Red Wedding massacre pretty much sets the tone of the new season, which the various actors and crew stress in ’Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing.’
Oh, and there’s another wedding (this one’s referred to as the Purple Wedding) and dragons, which are growing up fast. Remember how cute and relatively cuddly they were a couple seasons ago? Well, they’re bigger and fiercer now, and have way sharper teeth, which are on full display in the new video.
“Some of the most shocking and mind-blowing scenes of the entire series come at the end of this coming season,” says David Benioff, the show’s executive producer, writer and director in the video. Bring it on!
