New Game Of Thrones season 3 teaser trailer

Trailer Louisa Mellor 11 Jan 2013 - 18:24

HBO has released a new teaser for Game Of Thrones' third season, featuring a familiar song...

This is a teaser trailer unlike many others, but then Game Of Thrones is a television programme unlike many others. Instead of clips from the third season, we're presented with a simple collision of two worlds: Bran's three-eyed raven swoops over contemporary urban landmarks accompanied by the legend: "Their world returns to ours".

The song playing as it does so? The Rains of Castermere performed by The National's Matt Berninger, as played over the end credits of season two's Blackwater, sung by the Lannister soldiers before the battle in that same episode, and, for those paying attention, whistled by Tyrion in A Man Without Honor.

Watch the teaser trailer and, just for a treat, take a look at the song's lyrics below:

And who are you, the proud lord said,that I must bow so low? Only a cat of a different coat,that's all the truth I know. In a coat of gold or a coat of red, a lion still has claws, and mine are long and sharp, my lord,as long and sharp as yours. And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere,But now the rains weep o'er his hall,with no one there to hear. Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall, and not a soul to hear.

Game Of Thrones returns to HBO on the 31st of March, and to Sky Atlantic on the 1st of April.

Really cool.

Nice trailer....i almost prefer not seeing clips from the new seasons....I will probably avoid them going forward....I want every bit of it to surprise me when i am watching it :-)

Somehow its been a long 12 months absence. Can I also just mention that best wishes go out to Wilko Johnson who plays Ser Iilyn Payne in the show who revealed that he's suffering from terminal cancer this week - such sad news.

Series 3, Sean Bean returns as... himself crossing over into the world of GoT! Based on (very very loosely) the best selling books. No one would see it coming, no one!

Damn I thought this was returning earlier than 31/3

Damn it I can't wait ! !

Bran and Rickard die in the middle of this season. Killed by Joffrey himself. Spoiler alert!

That is the worst trailer ever. The teaser posters have also been crap. Whoever is doing their publicity for season 3 needs to be fired. In no way does this ad campaign build interest in the new season. Lazy advertising.
