Winter is coming and it's only five-ish weeks away.
Continuing to cater to the eager anticipation for the new drama series "Game of Thrones," HBO has unveiled a new poster for George R.R. Martin adaptation.
The snazzy poster features Sean Bean's Eddard Stark and a raven sitting atop the throne that's one of the show's key props. The tag line: "You win or you die."
"Game of Thrones" will premiere on HBO on April 17, but viewers will be treated to the first 15 minutes of the pilot on April 3 at 9 p.m.
"Game of Thrones" was adapted for the small screen by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. The series, shot in Northern Ireland and Malta, features a vast ensemble cast that includes Mark Addy, Sean Bean, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Lena Headey, Kit Harington and Aidan Gillen.
