Game of Thrones fans got a very big surprise this morning with the first full trailer for the fantasy series' eighth and final season, which airs on HBO next month. Stay tuned to Culturess for all the latest in Game of Thrones speculation.

And yet here we are, with around 90 seconds of new footage to obsess over.

We then see swaths of soldiers readying ships for battle and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) looking up in awe to see dragons soaring above her in Winterfell.

John Rocha and Perri Nemiroff sit down to watch this trailer for the first time and give you their reaction to it.

Finally: For those of you who know this show better than you know some of your distant relatives, what theories are you willing to put out there about how the HBO drama's last six episodes will unfold?

Daenerys's army, which includes Grey Worm, Ser Jorah Mormont, Brienne of Tarth, and Podrick Payne will be assembled outside the battlements of Winterfell to take on the Night King's army.

Final set, I did little bit more. "I just need to try to play my game and be happy on the court, be positive", Hsieh said. American Sofia Kenin , victor of last month's Hobart title, defeated Russian 11th seed Daria Kasatkina 6-3, 2-6, 6-4.


Co-executive producer Bryan Cogman spoke about the epic battle scene, calling it unprecedented for TV or film.

And if you were expecting epic for the end of the HBO blockbuster, this almost two-minute peek certainly hits the target like a kingslayer. "You can't get sick, and you have to look out for yourself because there's so much to do that nobody else can do...there are moments you're just broken as a human and just want to cry".

But we're getting ahead of ourselves. I keep thinking: "'Whose story am I telling right now?'", he said.

The long-awaited six-episode finale to the hit show premiers on April 14, with fans eager to find out what happens to beloved characters such as Kit Harington's Jon Snow, and his new partner, Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen. "All I can tell you as part of this season, is it is all spectacular".

"They're coming. Our enemy doesn't tire, doesn't stop, doesn't feel".

The final battle scene of Game of Thrones season 8 has always been debated among the fans.
