Season 7 promo released

Excitement is building for the latest instalment of Game Of Thrones after a new trailer for the show’s seventh season was released.

Despite being four months away from hitting TV screens, the 90-second teaser is sure to get fans talking.

Entitled Long Walk, it features characters Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, who are seen heading towards their respective throne rooms in King’s Landing, Dragonstone and Winterfell.

The trailer is soundtracked by a cover version of British indie band James’s 1989 hit Sit Down.

Since its debut in 2010, the fantasy epic has picked up 38 Emmys, more than any other fictional show in history.

Few details have been revealed about the new season, which premieres on 16 July, except that Oscar-winning Jim Broadbent joins the cast and singer Ed Sheeran is to make a cameo appearance.
