First Look: Game of Thrones' Season 3 Poster

New Game of Thrones episodes are still more than four long months away. But until then, here’s a delightfully dreary new poster touting Season 3 of the sprawling HBO saga.

The forthcoming season’s premiere date — “03.31.13” — is all the artwork boasts. However, it should be noted that there are some stark contrasts between this piece and last season’s fiery red one. Could this be a sign of dark(er) things to come?
