Video: New trailer released for Game of Thrones series 3
Tuesday 19 March 2013
The second teaser trailer for the third series of Game of Thrones gives fans a glimpse of what they can expect when the programme returns to UK television on 1 April.
The ninety second trailer suggests that season three will be as full of battles and complex scheming as its last two.
The clip opens with Queen Regent Cersei Lannister, who replies to the question “how long will it go on?” with “until we’ve dealt with all our enemies”.
The Lannister family, who rose to victory in the climax of series two, look to feature heavily in season three. Tyrion warns forebodingly: “Seven kingdoms united in fear of Tywin Lannister.”
Meanwhile Joffrey Baratheon continues his sadistic ways, raging: “I am the King, everyone is mine to torment.”
The third season of Game of Thrones will premiere in the UK on Sky Atlantic and Sky Atlantic HD on April 1 at 9pm.
