Well the tryptophan and beer buzz is starting to wear off, which means Thanksgiving is coming to a close, but HBO is giving us one last thing to be thankful for, new Game of Thrones footage! First discovered by Twitterer ogebaba and confirmed by Ran of Westeros, it looks like HBO will be airing a 15-min Inside Game of Thrones special on Dec. 5th at 8:45 PM Eastern. HBO describes the program as “A special sneak preview of the highly anticipated HBO series Game of Thrones.”
Winter Is Coming: As speculated, it looks like our next big glimpse of Thrones will be prior to Boardwalk Empire‘s season finale. As to what we will see, I’m guessing it will be similar to the Making Of feature they had back in Sept, only much longer obviously. Probably interviews with more of the cast, and much more from David and Dan. Maybe they will add some footage from the Artisan videos for the benefit of all those HBO subscribers not following the production blog. And yes, I would bet good money we will be seeing our first full trailer. Hold on to your hats folks, the hype train is full steam ahead!
UPDATE: Looks like I would have lost money on my bet. We aren’t getting a new trailer on Dec 5… we are getting it
tomorrow on Sunday! HBO has just informed us that they will be airing what they are calling the “third tease promo” for Game of Thrones. So maybe not a full trailer, but something new for sure!
The trailer is set to air prior to the 9 PM Boardwalk Empire episode on Sunday Nov. 28th and will be viewable on HBO.com and MakingGameofThrones.com immediately after airing on the East Coast. We will of course have it embedded here on the site as well.
