Winterfell is completely destroyed in the latest Game of Thrones Season 8 teaser

HBO is really amping up the Game of Thrones Season 8 promotions. They went from taking a long, long time to drop the Season 8 trailer, to dropping teasers at the rate of almost 1 per day for the last three days. The brand new teaser dropped today is called “Aftermath“, and it’ll guaranteed to add to your Season 8 worries. Read on!

HBO began this rampage by dropping a teaser to reignite the hype, followed by one teasing a much anticipated reunion. Now HBO seems to have gone all out and warned us with a teaser showing what’s coming for us. Check it out:

Spoiler alert!

Now, we know there’s a big battle that will happen at Winterfell, when the Army of the Dead goes up against the living one. We have heard reports that say that this battle is likely to leave Winterfell burnt to the ground.

It’s going to be in the third episode of Season 8, being directed by Miguel Sapochnik. It’s safe to say we’ll lose a large chunk of characters to this battle. This teaser shows the Longclaw in the snow, laced with blood, hinting that Jon Snow might have been hurt, if not killed. The aftermath of the Battle of Winterfell.

And then comes the scare, a figure in the background, walking at the pace of a Wight. It looks like Jon Snow, and the “Aftermath” might be hinting at him becoming a wight.

Of course, it’s possible he’s still alive here, or that it’s not actually Jon. It’s also possible this footage is actually not from Season 8, but specifically shot for the teaser, just like the Crypts of Winterfell teaser.

Over to you for further speculations. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones gets new opening credits for Season 8

Game of Thrones gets a new title sequence with Season 8

After a wait of nearly two years, Game of Thrones Season 8 premiered today. The episode had a lot of great moments, but we didn’t have to wait to get into the middle of it to get hyped. The opening sequence is enough to get our hearts racing. This time around, we have a revamped opening credits sequence! Read on!

HBO has gone all out on Game of Thrones Season 8. There was no way they wouldn’t have updated the title sequence, which is one of the most iconic things about the show. Check out the brand new title sequence, below:

You might have noticed that the title sequence has been entirely remade. Usually, there are just some minor changes. We start off with the Wall, and the giant hole in it. The colours have changed, and we see winter seeping into the North with the colours changing. As we know, everything revolves around Winterfell and King’s Landing now, and the title sequence reflects this. Instead of the usual traversal of all the locations, we actually see the field of view go into the interiors of Winterfell and King’s Landing.

We also got a look at Last Hearth, the seat of the Umbers, the crypts of Winterfell, and best of all, the Throne Room.

Winterfell prepares for war in the trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2

Game of Thrones Season 8 just premiered, and as tradition goes, the preview was the second episode was released immediately after the episode. A lot happened in the season premiere, and a lot more seems to be lined up for us, in the next episode, so SPOILER ALERT! Let’s take a look:

There’s a lot going on in this 50 seconds promo. We saw Jaime Lannister arrive in Winterfell at the end of the last episode. Bran is the first person he sees. Looks like he now stands for what seems like a soft trial, in front of Daenerys, who is reminding him that her father was the King that he slew. We then see the conflict between Sansa and Daenerys grow, and Arya says her line about wanting to see this face of death, which we had first heard in the trailer. Winterfell prepares for battle, because as we know, the big battle will be in the third episode of the season.

The episode airs next week, on the 21st of April.

Have you watched the Season 8 premiere yet? How did you like it? Looking forward to episode 2? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

British Army and Night's Watch team up to promote Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones is one of the biggest TV phenomena to have ever occurred. It is no surprise that the show is getting a big round of promotions for the Season 8 release, worldwide. The latest promotional stunt for the release comes from from the UK. The British Army and the Night’s Watch teamed up to promote the Season 8 release. Read on!

This arrangement was made by Sky Atlantic, the British television network that airs Game of Thrones in the UK, in a partnership with the British Army. The Army’s Coldstream Guards played their own rendition of the Game of Thrones theme tune, with the Night’s Watch demonstrated an army formation. It’s all a very cool and British attempt.

The performance took place at the Tower of London, with the visitors and tourists getting a surprise. Apparently, this whole staging was worth two months of work on the choreography, which deserves a lot of praise. The costumes that were worn by the actors also took 10 weeks to make, with a team of experts working on the whole shindig, reports Campaign.

Richard Maddocks, Coldstream Guards sergeant major commented:

“We play all over the world at all sorts of concerts and events, but this was genuinely a career highlight for all of us. It’s a favorite TV programme of many of ours, [which] made it an extra-special experience.”

Director of programmes at Sky Entertainment UK and Ireland, Zai Bennett also weighed in:

“It has been a groundbreaking seven years and the Sky Atlantic team are as excited about what’s in store as the millions of fans and Sky Atlantic viewers who will be tuning in to discover the outcome of the final battle between the living and the dead.”
