“I choose violence.” –Cersei Lannister

The trailer for the sixth season of HBO’s  Games of Thrones has arrived, and it’s basically going to ruin your life in the best way possible. Why? Because you’re going to realize it’s March 8 and not April 24. Yes, just about six weeks until GOT returns.

The trailer, a red band trailer, is scored by Irish musician James Vincent McMorrow who performs Chris Isaak’s classic “Wicked Game.”

The trailer is a thrilling, slow build to an orgy of violence, punctuated by a crazy ending.
