HBO drops first Game Of Thrones season 8 trailer

We've been waiting. and waiting. and waiting. and now the first trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 has arrived and, well, it doesn't give much away.

The wolf of the House Stark can be seen frozen over so as the dragon which can be assumed as the belonging of House Targaryen. The teaser starts off with ice and fire sweeping across the map of fictional world Westeros, possibly a take on the "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series that the show is based on.

The new video was revealed at the São Paulo Expo in Brazil for the Comic Con Experience.

Trudeau denies involvement in Huawei arrest
In exchange, ZTE agreed to pay a hefty $1 billion fine and put an additional $400 million in escrow in case of future violations. The arrest has cast a shadow over the summit, with China demanding Meng's release and saying she has not violated any laws.

As pointed out by our own Kim Renfro, "GoT" composer Djawadi Ramin's "Winter is Here", from the season seven finale, can be heard in the teaser. The show will bring some epic battle scenes, some gruesome deaths, and it will finally answer how Tyrion will carry on his life after knowing that Daenerys and Jon Snow are in some sort of a relationship. But the story of Game of Thrones has always been about fire and ice, be it White Walkers and Targaryens, or aunts and nephews who may unite the kingdom by being in accidentally incestuous relationships. There is no film or television show for which I am more excited for than Game of Thrones Season 8, no, not even Star Wars: Episode IX.

"Game of Thrones" returns to HBO in April.

Our resident "Game of Thrones" expert, Kim Renfro, will be back next year to cover the final season of "Game of Thrones".
