For fans of Game of Thrones, March can't pass quickly enough. Now, like a sadistic gaoler in the bowels of The Red Keep, HBO has released an extended trailer for season three, just to torture you and keep you thinking about the show until its March 31 premiere.
The trailer features Emilia Clarke as child Queen Daenerys Targaryen, surveying her army of "Unsullied" eunuchs. The Mother of Dragons is also shown on a ship sailing towards Slaver's Bay as Drogon, the largest of her three "children," flies above. Clarke can currently be seen on Broadway as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. She's just so good at playing the "it" girl!
The trailer also features Ciaran Hinds as King-Beyond-The-Wall Mance Rayder. Hinds plays Big Daddy in the current Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which is set to close on March 30, the day before the Game of Thrones premiere.
Peter Dinklage once again stars as Tyrion Lannister. Dinklage is a regular on the stage, last appearing in 2012's Bard SummerScape production of The Imaginary Invalid.
So pour a glass of wine and prepare to obsess over every frame of this 85 second trailer. All signs point toward the biggest season ever for the most-watched (and most-pirated) show on HBO.
