Game of Thrones Season 5 is almost upon us. To excite and tease eagerly awaiting fans, comes a new heart pounding trailer from Apple. This new look into the happenings of Westeros shows tons of new footage; including (but hardly limited to) the “breaking the wheel” monologue from Daenerys, in which she plots to end the cycle of family violence that has plagued her high born land, and more footage of Jonathan Pryce’s character the High Sparrow.
The trailer premiered during Apple’s keynote event today where Apple CEO Tim Cook and HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler announced that they will be partnering up to give us an HBO Apple TV streaming service plan so people can watch HBO whenever they want. The service will cost subscribers $14.99 per month, and it will be available in time for the April 12th premiere of Game of Thrones.
Trailer via iTunes. Game of Thrones season 5 premieres on HBO on April 12 at 9PM.
Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues. It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’ An original series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series.
