New Game of Thrones trailer: More sex, more swords, more violence

Good news for fans of the George R.R. Martin series, A Song of Fire and Ice, which is being adapted into the TV show Game of Thrones for HBO. Or rather, it's two pieces of good news. First, the fifth book in the series finally has a release date. Second, the upcoming TV show has a new, even more exciting trailer.

The fifth book in the series, A Dance with Dragons, will be hitting the shelves on July 12, a full SIX years after the previous book, A Feast for Crows, appeared. However, even with a firm publication date, Martin hasn't finished writing the book; according to CNN, "Martin has said he needed to map out the storylines of the last two before finishing A Dance With Dragons."

Fans who are wondering when they'll ever see the last two novels in the series can take comfort in the upcoming TV series ... although "comfort" might not be the right word, considering the intrigue, violence and hinted nudity of this new trailer.

You can find the trailer over at Entertainment Weekly, who launched the trailer exclusively.
