Watch the official trailer for Game of Thrones season 7!

The upcoming season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" is shaping up to be the bloodiest yet, according to a new trailer. (Someone will surely make a video with that theme over the trailer.) King's Landing might be stuck in the middle with her kingdom and troops, but she's ready for a fight.

Also, if someone can tell me where I might purchase a floor-sized map of Westeros for my apartment, I'll let you come over and play Game of Thrones Risk on it. Watch until the end for an epic shot of what appears to be an army of Dothraki on horseback escorted by one of Daenerys' dragons. Bloodthirsty Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), who's definitely on the move. The biggest dragons we've ever seen, if new Entertainment Weekly photos are any indication. Oh, and it definitely seems like there's major plot twists in store for Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), who is seen boasting: "I was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms". And, as Jon Snow (Kit Harington) promises in the extended clip, the climactic war for the Iron Throne we've been building towards all these seasons has begun.

"If we don't put aside our enemies and band together, we will die", he says. "And then it doesn't matter show skeleton sits on the Iron Throne".

The season is clearly headed towards "the great war". An arm reaches creepily through a door, perhaps Jorah with progressed greyscale. "Game of Thrones" season 7 is set to premiere on July 16 on HBO. The last words of the trailer are moreover: "The great war ... is there", pronounced by our dear Jon Snow. It will be just seven episodes with the final installments of the show airing in 2018.
