Season 6 of Game of Thrones is looking grim in all the right ways

After a number of behind-the-scenes stills and a teaser or two, the full trailer for the upcoming sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones is here.

As far as trailers go, it’s one of their best. With the series set to overtake the George R. R. Martin‘s books this season, there are a lot of little details or scenes that fans can use to infer where things might be going for characters like Dany (Emilia Clarke).

The trailer is rife with memorable lines from “You’re in the great game now… and the great game is terrifying” to Cersei (Lena Headey)’s declaration of “I choose violence” and the whole thing is set to James Vincent McMorrow‘s “Wicked Game”.

It’s all very moody – check it out below.

Game of Thrones returns on the 24th of April 2016.
