Game of Thrones season four is nearly upon us. With a scheduled broadcast date in the United States of April 6 on HBO the expectation is that it'll be broadcast less than 24 hours later on Sky Atlantic in the UK. In preparation for the new season, the trailer is being launched tonight at 8:58pm Eastern Standing Time which translates to 1:59am on January 13th for those of us in the UK. Before that comes out we can watch the trailer for the trailer which shows a few snippets of the new season. In addition, some preview footage has been brought on Vine as seen here. Amongst the particular highlights there is the first footage we've seen of one of the biggest fights of this year's season in the fight between Oberyn Martell and Gregor Clegane something I previously wrote about back in November in Game Of Thrones Season 4: 5 Spoiler-iffic Scenes We Can't Wait to See. In another promotional push, the town of Kings Langley in Hertfordshire is being renamed to Kings Landing between February 17 and 24. Something we've learnt in the past couple of years is that despite how disappointing the coming of an end of a season of The Walking Dead may be, it does signal the start of a season of Game of Thrones. We can expect ten episodes in the new season, and I suspect we'll have that annoying mid-season gap between episodes five and six that we always seem to get in shows like this. Anyway, you probably want to see the pre-trailer, so here you go: http://youtu.be/Ih3WsEKmID0
