Can we even call “Game Of Thrones” a television show anymore? Last night, HBO‘s hit program arrived on select IMAX screens, and it speaks to the popularity of the series that showing the first two episodes of season four still had people buying tickets. But there was an added allure — the promise of the first trailer for season five. And indeed, it did screen, and inevitably, someone has made a shoddy recording on their cell phone.
That said, this one is decent enough to watch, especially if you’re a diehard fan. So, what do we get? Well, Tywin is dead, Tyrion is making his way across the Narrow Sea and Daenerys Targaryen is returning to Westeros for the Iron Throne. Basically, you’re going to see a little of everyone in here, and yes, this looks every bit as epic as you were expecting. Frankly, we’re just waiting for HBO to announce that the season premiere will also screen in select IMAX theaters too; seems like the next logical step for a show that has broken free from its small screen box.
“Game Of Thrones” is back on April 12th. Watch below. Update: The official version is now online. Enjoy below!
