New 'Game of Thrones' Trailer Sets Stage for Epic Battle in Westeros -- Watch!


Game of Thrones is setting the stage.

HBO released an intense trailer for season seven of the wildly popular series, featuring Cersei Lannister (Lena Heady), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clark) taking their seats as the Battle for the Seven Kingdoms seems poised to go off in a big way.

While Cersei is clearly on the Iron Throne in the teaser -- which doesn't look to have actual footage from the season -- and Jon Snow appears to be in the Great Hall of Winterfell, we see Daenerys take her seat in an unfamiliar location, which (BRIEF POSSIBLE SPOILER) some have speculated could be the throne at Dragonstone.

Sadly, we have a little longer to wait than usual, as the seventh season of Game of Thrones isn't set to premiere until July 16.
