Game of Thrones season 6 is now a month and a half away, and there is SO MUCH shit going on in this trailer (plus a haunting rendition of Chris Isaac’s ‘Wicked Games’). The main concern for most fans is addressed in the game most Game of Thrones way possible, with the first thing you see being a man doing a voiceover saying ‘he’s gone’ while we look at an aerial view of Jon Snow’s body. Then the final scene is Davos pulling out his sword (not a sexual reference) and saying ‘I’ve never been much of a fighter. Apologies for what you’re about to see’ while Jon Snow lays on a slab of concrete. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? On top of that, you’ve got Cersei exacting her mountainous revenge against the High Sparrow, Bran getting confronted by the white walkers and Jorah clutching jewels in the mountains somewhere. Game of Thrones is a crazy show to begin with, but add in the fact that last season’s finale left so many questions to be asked and you have a recipe for a roller coaster ride of a season. April 24th will be the day of reckoning.
My favorite part of comic-con, hands down, is the release of all the movie and television trailers. The panels are great and all, but nothing beats a kick ass movie trailer, or in this case, a 4 minute trailer for the new season of ‘The Walking Dead’. Season 5 ended on a killer note (get it) and season 6 should feature a lot of infighting, as well as possibly the group’s biggest non-walker threat to date. I’ve never read the comics, but I know a lot of people who have, so it’s the best of both worlds. I’m able to get some insight on things we don’t know about, but it’s not a 100% spoiler. I have a feeling this new season is going to be a game changer, and I think more than one of the group’s beloved members won’t survive to see season 7. Also, how many band aids does Rick really need on his face? Seems a little overboard to me. Season 6 premieres on October 11th.
