The IMAX theatrical screenings for the Season 4 episodes will run through February 5, 2015, with Season 5 premiering on HBO in April 12, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. A behind-the-scenes featurette titled Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Day In A Life, which will take a look at one day of production for Season 5 on three different sets in three different countries, will air on HBO on Sunday, February 8, 2015 at 7:30pm EST.
As far as the footage shown in this new trailer, which, by the way, is set to David Bowie’s “Heroes,” we see a lot of the twisted Lannister twins – Cercei and Jaime – and their imp younger brother Tyrion, who’s off with Varys now plotting a takeover of the Iron Throne. Speaking of plans to take the Iron Throne, there’s beloved ruler Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons. We also catch up with Littlefinger and his new travel companion Sansa Stark, who we find is out for revenge (who could blame her?). We already know that Bran Stark and Hodor won’t appear in the upcoming Season 5, but fan favorite Arya Stark has a big storyline – we see her at the end holding her sword Needle. There’s also more battling for Jon Snow, more manipulations by the Tyrells, and a new King on the Iron Throne with a new Queen. There’s a lot of quick flashes and introductions to new characters and locations. Season 5 is going to be epic!
