The final season of Game of Thrones is almost upon us and we finally have a trailer now before the season premiere on Sunday, April 14th.
It’s been over 550 days since the last Game of Thrones episode aired on HBO in August of 2017. Now the end is in sight. Sunday, April 14th will start what will be considered the most hyped season of a television series in modern history. It will be a shortened season of six episodes.
It recently came out in an EW feature that we could see the largest battle sequence ever in one episode.
When preparing for the shoot, Sapochnik tried to find a longer battle sequence in cinema history and couldn’t. The closest was the nearly 40-minute Helm’s Deep siege in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, which he studied to determine when the audience would get “battle fatigue” from too much hacking and slashing.
That means if you haven’t caught up yet, you have a little under 40 days to catch up.
