First Full Trailer For Game Of Thrones Season 4
'Things are a bit tense right now...'

Winter? Still coming. And from the looks of that opening shot, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and her dragons really are going to be a force this year. It should come as no surprise that Season Four will once again bring more challenges to the sprawling cast of characters for Game Of Thrones, as this new trailer proves. 

Featuring both favourites (Tyrion!) and love-to-hate types (Joffrey!) learning again that nothing is ever easy in this world, the new promo from HBO shows that fresh trials are lurking even as some try to enjoy minor victories.

Even after the bloody chaos of last season, more characters are scheduled to die at the hands of show-runners David Benioff and D.B. Wise, spurred on by the merciless creative vision of George R.R. Martin (emphasis on the 'merciless' bit).

Season Four, once more adapted from Martin’s sprawling tome A Storm Of Swords (the third of his Song Of Ice And Fire series) will find new characters coming into play, including Mace Tyrell (Roger Ashton-Griffiths), Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma), Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman), Styr, Magnar of Thenn (Joseph Gatt) and Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal). And let’s not forget Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss, who will apparently crop up as Tycho Nestoris, a representative of the Iron Bank.

The new season arrives in the States on April 6 and will screen in the UK starting April 7 on Sky Atlantic.

Also Can't Wait!!!
I'm two thirds of the way through A Storm Of Swords book so I've jumped ahead of the show but if the book (and this trailer) is anything to go by, this new season is going to be so damn good!   Edit - spoilers More
