GAME OF THRONES: HBO Releases Recut Season 8 Spoiler Trailer, Reigniting Fan Backlash
Hell hath no fury like a fan scorned, and HBO has now incurred the wrath of the Game of Thrones faithful by releasing a recut trailer for the eighth and final season of the fantasy drama series...
HBO has announced "The Iron Anniversary," a month-long event to commemorate the 10th anniversary of smash-hit fantasy drama series, Game of Thrones.
As part of the celebration, the network has released a recut, spoiler-filled trailer for the divisive eighth and final season, but many fans are still feeling a little... irritable about the way the series concluded, and seem to have no problem letting HBO know it!
Season 8 of Game of Thrones certainly had its moments, but to say the majority of fans were let down by how the story finished up would be quite the understatement. People just weren't ready to accept Dany (Emilia Clarke) turning heel (to borrow a wrestling term), and making Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) king didn't go down very well, either.
More than that, though, these creative choices simply didn't feel earned in many viewers' eyes, and it's generally felt that the more cerebral, character-based drama of the earlier seasons was all-but abandoned as the series approached its end.
Check out the trailer below along with a couple of other GOT Iron Anniversary vids, and let us know if you're planning on a re-watch to mark the show's 10th birthday.
