This Eerie New Game of Thrones Poster Shows Tyrion Facing a Dragon

1 minute read

The new season of Game of Thrones promises to bring about a meeting of two worlds.

That’s the message carried across by the poster for season 5, in which a ship carrying Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) comes up against one of Daenerys’s three dragons. It’s a sinister image, and one that is true to the action of the series so far: Tyrion, in exile, is fleeing to a domain that the Mother of Dragons controls.

Game of Thrones returns April 12 at 9 p.m. EST.
