Game of Thrones – Season 4 (Trailer #2) Review
BRING ON APRIL! Game of Thrones will coming real soon and this latest trailer was so good that I felt compelled to review it. I have always considered Game of Thrones to be a really long movie each season so it’s a good place to start doing TV trailer reviews. The new season looks great and having read the books I know where it’s going so trust me it looks very promising. I won’t spoil anything but I may mention which new characters to look out for. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
“If you want justice, you’ve come to the wrong place”
My Score: A
Release date: 6th April 2014
Season 4 will be mostly based on the second half of A Storm of Swords, the third book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, but also some material may be added from the fourth and fifth books (which run concurrently alongside the end of the third book and each other).
Way too much to put into a small synopsis.
What I liked
#8. The Purple Wedding
The sequel to the Red Wedding will be an event for a couple of reasons. That’s all I am going to say, however it’s going to be a hell of a time of scenes both party and otherwise. Great part in the book.
Here is my favourite quote.
“My own wedding is looking much better in hindsight.” – Tyrion
#7. Jaime Lannister and His Left Handed Adventures
He is going to be a character to watch this season. After his dark and very humbling experiences in the north, Jaime is a changed man and in the books at least he is one of the nicer characters. Something that maybe hard to expect out of captain incest but we’ll soon see.
#6. City of Meereen
I believe that this is Meereen a rather massive city in or around Slaver’s Bay, my memory is a little hazy so forgive me if I am wrong. That city looks amazing, great CG and just the scale is massive. Why does she want Kings Landing? I mean look at it!
#5. Tyrion Is Not Going To Have A Great Time
I’ll be honest if I had to say who will most likely get the worst of it this season, Tyrion would be up there. Last season he had a pretty good time (for this series) and well that’s going to change pretty damn quick. Good luck Peter, I look forward to your acting.
Looks like we will not only get a siege this season but maybe two sieges. We have Dragon lady trying to take the slave city of Meereen, and well that’s going to be a job and a half. On the other side of the world we have the wall in the north being invaded by the wildlings, that’ll be fun.
#3. The Mountain vs. The Red Viper
This I know! This duel between Ser Gregor Clegane ‘The Mountain’ (he cut off the horses head in season 1) and Prince Oberyn Martell ‘The Red Viper’ (new to the series) Will be EPIC!!! The Red Viper is a great character and so am really just looking forward to that, George R. R. Martin said he nailed the audition so yay.
#2. There Be White Walkers
It wouldn’t be Game of Thrones without a little White Walker tease. However if we don’t get more than a snowed out slow walk I will lose it. We need a proper Walker attack, I need armies of the undead!
This looks EPIC!!! That is a gnarly looking dragon. Still not fully grown yet, well at least in my mind but that is definitely more like it. Can’t wait until their ridden into battle.
What I Didn’t Like
This comes out in April. We are in mid-February. That. I don’t like that.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
