HBO debuts the first poster for Game of Thrones season 7

It has begun. Over the past week, HBO has been slowly trickling out new, official teasers and images for Game of Thrones season 7. There are two new “In Production” teasers now in rotation, and teaser posters have shown up on the sides of buses in Austin in preparation for the show’s presence at this year’s South by Southwest festival, which kicks off this weekend.

Now, Entertainment Weekly has debuted the official version of that teaser poster. Ice, meet fire:

They’re going rather conceptual for this one, aren’t they? The fire represents Daenerys, the ice represents Jon Snow and/or the Night King, and finally the groups are meeting up. That’s what I’m taking from it, anyway. It’s not quite as inflammatory as the poster released before season 6, but I like it.

You’ll also note that there’s no premiere date, or even a premiere month, on the poster. HBO continues to keep that one close to its chest. WiC will be on hand for the SXSW panel, bringing you all the info that’s fit to bring. Now that the first official teasers have started to trickle out, hopefully the floodgates will open.

    • OK maybe I’m seeing things: The fire poster above, I lightened the pic and enlarged sections. The guy a flame on far right, looks similar to the mountain. Look at his helm!

      There is also someone far top upper left,looks to be fleeing. There is another in the stands just above the guy similar to the mountain also fleeing.

      I can’t really make those guys out.

      Could Dany’s Dragons be BBQ ing some of the Lannister Guards along with the Mountain ?

      How fitting for the Mountain to burn by dragon fire, Since he shoved his brothers face in it.

  • An escape-the-room immersive experience? Creating an interactive medieval theme park like that has been my ‘if I won the Powerball lottery’ fantasy for years now. Kids who grew up on RPGs need entertainment destinations that are less passive than just rides. They need the challenge of figuring out the clues to get to the next dungeon. Here in New York State, there are a bunch of mothballed former armories that look like castles that would be perfect for that sort of tourist attraction.

  • I think the fire represents Dany, and the ice represents Bran, who is the Night King. Jon is literally “The Song of Ice and Fire”, who somehow will broker a peace in the war to come between his cousin and his aunt.

  • am i the only one who isnt fantasizing about the mountain and stuff when you can clearly see these are again sons of harpy?

    like you can see atleast 4 masks over the picture lol

    • Yes it’s probably and old shot,as I mentioned above. Lol

      I was just excited for a moment, thought it might have been new!

      It was fun to fantasize that theory for a split second anyway. That’s what this show does to you!! 😂😋😋😋😋

  • FIRE!!! The anticipation already has me on the edge of my seat! If it grows anymore I will be on the floor!👏👏😂😂💞💞
