Game of Thrones will kick off its fourth season on April 6th – but since two weeks is an eternity in nerd time (this writer included), the fantasy-drama has shared another round of intense teasers to satisfy fan cravings. Both of these new 30-second clips (titled “Awaken” and “All Men”) feature the foreboding phrase “ALL MEN MUST DIE,” a translation of “Valar Morghulis,” possibly emphasizing just how bloody these new batch of episodes will be.
“Awake,” available above, features a series of tantalizing teases – including one notable throat-slitting – and teases some added screen time for characters like Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) and Hodor (Kristian Nairn). “All Men,” available below, is heavy on sword fights and climaxes with Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) warning, “If you want justice, you’ve come to the wrong place.”
The premiere episode of season four, “Two Swords,” will air on April 6th at 9 p.m. EST, and the show has been cranking out the trailers in anticipation. Last week’s clip featured an array of ultimatums, throat-clearing dragons and INXS covers.
For a more thorough preview of the upcoming season, check out this epic 15-minute trailer, which features the show’s cast and crew foreshadowing the bloody battles and power plays up ahead. “There is tremendous clamor for revenge, especially in the wake of the Red Wedding,” says showrunner David Benioff in the trailer. He also warns of some “bloody confrontations” and “some of the most shocking and mind-blowing scenes in the entire series.”
