The First 14-Minutes of Game of Thrones, Season 1, Episode 1: Winter Is Coming has been released. HBO put a sizable amount of money into this show i.e. movie-grade effects and CGI. The scene at The Wall and the forest scene are very well orchestrated. The white walkers are sneaky bastards if they can move all of those bodies that quickly but what was up with the dead child with the blue eyes? I really need to read the books Game of Throne is based on. HBO’s Game of Thrones adaption follows (spoilers) “Seven noble families fight[ing] for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Political and sexual intrigue abound. The primary families are the Stark, Lannister, and Baratheon families. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard Stark to serve as his chief advisor. Eddard, suspecting that his predecessor had been murdered, accepts so that he can investigate further. It turns out more than one family is plotting to take the throne. The Queen’s family, the Lannisters, may be hatching a plot to take control. Across the sea, the last surviving members of the previously deposed ruling family, the Targaryens, are also plotting a return to power. The conflict between these families and others, including the Greyjoys, the Tullys, the Arryns, and the Tyrells, leads to war. Meanwhile, in the north, an ancient evil awakens. Amidst war and the political confusion, a brotherhood of misfits, The Night’s Watch, is all that stands between the realms of men and the horrors beyond.” The Game of Thrones Full Length TV Show Trailer was previously released. The cast of Game of Thrones includes Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Mark Addy, Lena Headey, Sean Bean, Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Jason Momoa, Sophie Turner, Rory McCann and many others.
