HBO has declared this Sunday, the day of the season two premiere, to be “Game of Thrones Day.” They have a number of different ways to get fans fired up for the premiere airing that night, which the below poster illustrates.
The main thrust of the promotion will be the livetweeting and livechatting of the Season One marathon on HBO2. HBO has lined up actors Kristian Nairn and Finn Jones, writer Bryan Cogman and even the fan sites, to each tweet or chat a different episode that day. I will be livetweeting the season one finale, “Fire and Blood”, which will be on at 7:30 PM ET. You can follow the live tweets either on Twitter or HBO Connect.
To make things even more fun, I will be doing my livetweeting from Professor Thom’s in NYC, where they are having a Season Two premiere party. After the livetweeting, I’ll get to watch the Season Two premiere surrounded by fellow Thrones fans. It doesn’t get much better than that! Come out and join us!
Winter Is Coming: And if you can make it there before 8:30 you can watch me livetweet… live! How meta is that?
