This is our first taste of footage from the new series of Game of Thrones, set to bow on March 31st.
A lot of fire and ice there. Only appropriate.
We’re going through a fashion with trailers right now where there’s no “voiceover man” but still a lot of voiceover. This trailer was a pretty perfect example of how “big lines” can be ripped out of context and stacked up for instant dramatic portent.
See also Man of Steel and Iron Man 3 for similar effects by similar means.
But does anybody miss “In a world…”?
