HBO announces Game of Thrones April 14 premiere date, releases new footage that isn't from the final season
The "official tease" promoting the eight and final season "teases the highly anticipated face-off between the Starks and the Army of the Dead in the final episodes when a major battle will take place at Winterfell," says James Hibberd. "The video is entirely new footage, though with a caveat: It’s not footage from within the final season itself but more like an evocative promotional ad. The spot was directed by GoT veteran and Emmy winner David Nutter, who directs multiple episodes in the final season. The score in the piece by series composer Ramin Djawadi is also new."
