Game of Thrones in IMAX Is Coming

According to reports, both the season five trailer for Game of Thrones and the last two episodes of season four will get a week-long run in IMAX theaters later this month. Yes, that means a jumbo-sized fight for The Wall. No, you shouldn't feel bad about doing an excited little involuntary clap right now.


While reliving the last two episodes of last season is enticing on its own, the trailer might be what makes the trip worth it. So far we've seen tantalizingly little of what season five might hold, aside from, well, whatever this is:

And an equally ambiguous 17-second teaser here:

That is not enough to slake my thirst! And if my thirst is going to be slaked at all, it might as well be on the biggest screen I can find.

The viewings will be spread over 150 IMAX theaters in North America starting January 23rd, and will run through the 29th. It's the first time a TV series will be released in the format, which makes total sense, as much as I love me some All in the Family. [EW]

They should've premiered the first 2 NEW episodes of Season 5. Now that would've been news! They would've had camp outs!

Some decision maker didn't man up and instead played their cards conservatively and did a half ass job by giving us old episodes. I'm not saying people won't see it, but I know if it were 2 new episodes, premiering the same night as the first airing on HBO, people would've gone NUTS!
