Westeros Blog: HBO Announces New Game of Thrones Material

Recommended Posts

Via e-mail, HBO has informed media sites that the True Blood pre-show starting at 8:40 EST will feature “previews of upcoming HBO Original Programming including Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Mildred Pierce, In Treatment, Big Love, Eastbound & Down, Bored to Death, Enlightened and Curb Your Enthusiasm.” A little bird has whispered to us that there’s some sort of long trailer already floating around in the labyrinths of HBO, but whether the pre-show preview will be that or another short teaser like the first teaser remains a question.

HBO promises to have the video up on the web—probably at the official Game of Thrones sub-site—within minutes of its airing, which is good news for those of us overseas (*ahem*). Also, a new still from the production will be sent to media sites to post online. Suffice it to say, Linda and I will be getting to bed late…

Notice how Game of Thrones leads the list of shows? Could be coincidence… or it could be a sign that HBO is aware of just how massive the interest is in the series on-line. A little bird has also whispered that some eyebrows were raised at how many hits that first little teaser earned…

Any odds that this time around, Daenerys Targaryen will be featured? Emilia Clarke has some gorgeous new portrait photos posted, taken by renowned celebrity photographer Lorenzo Aguis. Could be sheer coincidence, of course, but… one never knows.

This is exciting. Now I especially can't wait until Sunday...True Blood's back, Boardwalk Empire premier...now this! Too much.

I was disappointed when Tamzin Merchant left the project. When I read the Daenerys narrative I pictured Tamzin. Although I trusted TBTB (after all they've yet to disappoint with the cast, imo) I didn't think Emilia looked like Daenerys. However, when I look at this photo of Emilia I see Dany. It's easy to imagine the silver hair and violet eyes. I hope the new still features Dany *crosses fingers*
