New ‘Game of Thrones’ final season teaser promises epic battle

The First Teaser For The Final Season Of 'Game Of Thrones' Is Here

Game of Thrones Season 8 Teaser Has a Battle of Ice and Fire

It's here, what we've all been waiting for - a Game of Thrones season eight trailer has finally dropped and we couldn't be more excited. That, or the PR team at HBO is really harping on the whole "A Song of Ice and Fire" thing (the name of the book series that the show is based on) before the series concludes. But Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) is still ruling the Seven Kingdoms and is hellbent on keeping her power despite threats from snow-dwelling, baby-stealing monsters and another pair of incestuous star-crossed lovers.

Game of Thrones will be broadcast on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in April 2019.

The teaser was first shown at a "Game of Thrones" panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil.

The teaser shows a dragon and direwolf overtaken by ice on one side of a table while a lion gets consumed by fire at the opposite end.

Kevin Hart faces scrutiny after old homophobic tweets surface
Hart soon responded to the controversy in a video posted to Instagram but didn't apologise for the tweets. While Hart's words are hurtful and damaging, it's safe to say that comedians cross this line quite often.

On the one hand, there is dramatic visualization of the fact that fire - presumably Daenerys' dragon fire - must fight the icy forces of the White Walkers. "It's an incredibly emotional haunting bittersweet final season and I think it honors very much what [author George R.R. Martin] set out to do - which is flipping this kind of story on its head". But the story of Game of Thrones has always been about fire and ice, be it White Walkers and Targaryens, or aunts and nephews who may unite the kingdom by being in accidentally incestuous relationships.
