Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer: Daenerys' Destiny, Tyrion in Exile

Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer Video Danerys

“The seven kingdoms needs a ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name,” Lord Varys tells Tyrion in the first trailer for Game of Thrones‘ fifth season, causing the Lannister sibling to scoff, “Good luck finding him.”

“Who said anything about ‘him,'” the Spider replies, we cut to a shot of Daenerys, and we’re off!

The roughly two-minute video, which is airing as part of the HBO series being shown in IMAX theaters across the country, gives us plenty to look at/obsess over.

After an unofficial video — which was apparently shot by someone who attended one of the first IMAX screenings — made the rounds on the Web Friday morning, HBO released the official trailer, which can be viewed in full below.

Among the visuals you’ll see: the Sand Snakes; Tyrion on the lam; Arya handling Needle in Braavos; Ser Jorah doing battle; Dany asserting that she won’t “stop the wheel,” she will “break the wheel;” Littlefinger exhorting Sansa to create her own justice; Margaery wedding Tommen; major destruction in the form of a falling golden statue; Jon Snow leading men into battle; and, of course, blood and sex and dragons.

Press PLAY on the video below to get your first taste of Season 5 — which bows April 12 — then hit the comments with your snap judgments!

    It appears as if Sansa is getting Lady Stoneheart’s plot.

    Wow they actually included some more stuff from the North in the trailer. One of the major locations they’ve been neglecting (along with everything going on in the Iron Islands, of course…).

  7. Dave says:

    There is now an official version in HD.. you should switch it out on this page

  8. What?! says:

    GoT in IMAX is awwwsome! If you have a chance to go see it, do it!… Oh snap, who is the women with the whip? Tyrion n the Spider conspiring is going to be great!

  9. you can live in my new world says:

    Sorry, it’s the other way around. I’m not going to stop the wheel. I’m going to break the wheel.

  10. Nate says:

    She said she won’t stop the wheel, she’ll break it

  11. Joey says:

    Also still don’t really like Dany at all, but it looks like they’re going to be doing the Sons of the Harpy, which is one of the saving graces of her storyline.

      That was really important to you wasn’t it kiddo? I’m sure the showrunners are really grateful to you for ensuring that all articles have exactly word-for-word quotes!
