'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Official Trailer Suggests a Battle for Power


"Enemies to the East. Enemies to the West. Enemies to the South. Enemies to the North". In an interview with Deadline, Showrunner David Benioff said that he didn't want Game of Thrones to be an ongoing show, where every season it's trying to figure out new storylines.

But Daenerys targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke arrives at Dragonstone declaring that she was "born to rule the Seven Kingdoms".

We have some more information for people who love details.

Cersei's brother (and lover) Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is standing by as Cersei vows, "Whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it".

The popular HBO series, which is partly filmed in Northern Ireland, will begin it's penultimate season on July 16.

Note that the King in the North, Jon Snow, finally gets his hands around Littlefinger's throat.

OK that shot of Arya Stark on horseback is just way too cool. "And then it doesn't matter whose skeleton sits on the Iron Throne". Everyone seems to be after Lannister this time around, and with good reason after all.

However all of them appear to deny the very real looming threat of the White Walkers - all except Ser Davos Seaworth, who delivers an ominous warning to those in Westeros.

But more images of battle follow, along with an eye-popping glimpse of a dragon soaring in the sky above a charging force. And to add insult to injury, it's only seven episodes long (seasons 1-6 have all contained ten episodes).

"The great war is here", Jon Snow announces in no uncertain terms as the trailer ends.
