We've already had a trailer and a fifteen-minute promo, but HBO's publicity machine isn't done yet. Another trailer has just arrived, teasing a further hundred seconds of Game Of Thrones' fourth season. "All men must die," is the rallying cry. All women too, for sure, although presumably some of the cast will still be standing by the end of the ten episodes. Right? Hopefully?
"Vengeance" is the watchword here. We begin with Arya's checklist and end with the words Jaqen H'ghar taught her. In between, there are memory-jogging visits to the rest of George RR Martin's aggrieved dramatis personae. "If you're looking for justice, you've come to the wrong place," smirks Peter Dinklage's Tyrion.
It's Season Four, but we're still in A Storm Of Swords, the third volume of Martin’s sprawling Song Of Ice And Fire series. New characters will be coming into play though, 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). Mark Gatiss will also crop up as Tycho Nestoris, a representative of the Iron Bank.
Neil Marshall is once again among the directors, and the new season arrives in the States on April 6 and will screen in the UK starting April 7 on Sky Atlantic.
