As HBO’s Game of Thrones season 2 promotional campaign nears its end, we get more character images and an extended video that recaps season 1 while previewing season 2.
At this point there’s little to nothing left to be said about season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones - the network has pushed its marketing campaign of the acclaimed fantasy show pretty much as far as it can without actually showing us the episodes. Thankfully the stream of titillating trailers, featurettes, character photos, and interactive materials are coming to an end, as the GoT returns in just one week, on April 1st, 2012.
However, in one last hurrah of marketing materials, today we have some new Game of Thrones season 2 images, and a 22-minute preview of the upcoming season, which both recaps the character and events of season 1, while offering a further glimpse of season 2.
This new season will cover book two of author George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Fire and Ice” series, entitled “A Clash of Kings”. It will basically explore the ramifications of King Robert and Ned Stark’s deaths in season 1, as several factions from the different lands of Westeros rise up staking a claim to power, in direct dispute of Joffrey Baratheon’s seizure of the throne.
