Are you a Game of Thrones fan? Statistically speaking, you probably are given it is the most torrented movie in 2015. Not that we are condoning piracy, but if judging by just how much popular it is among pirates, chances are it is even more popular among ‘good’ movie buyers and renters like you.
HBO has just released the first trailer of the Game of Thrones season six. The trailer is an 80-second clip showing the spooky Hall of Faces that was first shown in season five. In the clip, the camera scarily hovers around the grave yard-quit and eerie Hall of Faces, showing us disembodied faces of characters that died in earlier seasons. The camera also flies across faces of characters that were alive as at the end of season five, characters like Daenerys Targaryen, Arya and Bran Stark, Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow.
As at the end of season five, all the three Stark siblings were in a state of limbo. Jon Snow was stabbed and left bleeding to death on a snowy ground at the Castle Black; his future is probably what left many viewers in suspense. Arya Stark pledged allegiance to an assassins’ cult while Bran Stark was living in a tree with Max von Sydow.
Judging by the faces in the Hall of Faces, most characters in the Game of Thrones could be on their last breaths in the TV series. However, that is just my guess! You will have to wait until April 24th when the Game of Thrones season six premieres on HBO.
Season six probably marks the uncharted grounds for the Game of Thrones characters, where the movie overtakes the books. This means that for the first time bookworms will not sit with a smug on their faces as the rest of the people who are less ‘book-tolerant’ catch up over the TV screens. For the first time those that like reading about it, and those who wait for the movie version of it will be in the same boat.
