Game of Thrones: Winter and war is coming to Westeros

You have 128 days to prepare.

A little over four months to watch or re-watch six seasons of Game of Thrones before the snow and blood begins to fall on Westeros.

HBO has released a teaser for the latest season but it acts less like a spoiler and more like a reminder.

The most powerful and iconic voices from the series are heard repeating the threats they have made over the past six years.

And then we hear Cersei Lannister:

"Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, Tyrell," says Cersei Lannister's voice.

"They're all just spokes on a wheel. This one's on top then that one's on top, and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground."

Finally we are treated to the gentle tones of Jon Snow who reminds us that there is only one war that matters, and that it is now upon us.

Winter is coming on July 16.
