Cold winds are rising in this “Game of Thrones” Season Two trailer.


A few months back, we were given a horribly disappointing teaser for the second season of HBO’s runaway hit, Game of Thrones. It seems the backlash over the complete lack of any new footage has prompted the network to try again, and I’m happy to report that the second attempt to kickstart the hype machine is largely successful.


While there’s not a huge amount of new material here, there’s certainly enough to get fans salivating.  I just finished reading the second book in the series a few weeks ago, so the complexities of the plot and the relationships between the characters are still fresh in my mind, and everything here looks almost exactly as I pictured.

Game of Thrones returns in April 2012, exclusively on HBO.
