It's here! Game of Thrones season 5 trailer

Independent News and Media

AFTER months of waiting and the odd cryptic 6-second teaser, the first full-length trailer for Game of Thrones season 5 has arrived.

It was debuted at IMAX showings of the last two episodes of season 4 in the US last night, and inevitably someone captured it with their smartphone.

The quality is terrible, but it has whipped fans into a fever nonetheless.

The fact that it's out there now out surely means we can expect HBO to release the HD version later today. We'll put it up as soon as it does.  

The trailer is set to a cover of David Bowie's Heroes (by The Wallflowers I think?)

Here are your ominous one-liners:

"Nothing's more hateful than failing to protect the one you love." - Cersei

"There's no justice in this world, not unless we make it. Avenge them." - Littlefinger

"I believe men of talent have a part to play in the war to come." - Varys

"I will never sit on the Iron Throne." - Tyrion 

"You could help another client that steps and takes that seat." - Varys

"I'm not going to stop the wheel. I'm going to break the wheel." - Khaleesi

"That little monster's out there drawing breath." - Cersei

"I don't think I'm read for what i deserve." - Tyrion

Tyrion has grown a lustrous beard for season 5, which will see "the end of Arya" as we know her.

"We're coming to the end now, so I don't know what they're going to do next year. It's the end of Arya, as far as anyone knows," actress Maisie Williams told The Guardian.

Game of Thrones season 5 begins on 12 April 2015 and will adapt material from George R. R. Martin's A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons.
