Official Game of Thrones S3 Poster Released

By Charlie Harwood on Feb 22, 2013 to Game of Thrones

James Hibberd from got the scoop – as he usually does – and supplied Game of Thrones fans with the first official poster for Season Three. Here it is:


So, what are my thoughts on this year’s poster? Well, it’s pretty, uh, meh, to put it lightly. In reality, I’m actually very disappointed! Did HBO spend all it’s money on production? Is there nothing left to make a decent poster for Season Three? I guess so, cause this poster is in direwolf need of a makeover. I find it extremely boring and uninteresting. Sure, dragons are completely badass, but it’s just a shadow. Show me a REAL dragon and I might be impressed. And where’s the color? The shadow over the boring gray background makes it even more drab. Needless to say, I won’t be hanging this poster on my wall anytime soon.

So far the posters have deteriorated since the awesome shot of Ned sitting on the Iron Throne from Season One. Last year’s hand holding up Robert’s crown was okay, but still way better than this! Anyways, enough ranting from me. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

ICYMI, the first TRAILER for S3 will premiere tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live! We have all the details, as well as a new teaser for tonight’s trailer right here.

  • The poster have certainly gone downhill, you’re absolutely right. Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of Photoshop could have thrown this one together. It’s sad because there are so many amazing graphics and images that fans have been producing. I would love to see them run some kind of contest and feature a fan designed poster at some point.

      HBO actually did create a contest for fans to create a GoT Poster. It was announced on the Official Tumblr site for the show about a month or so ago. I think they did it last year too. I completely agree though, some of the fan creations are WAY better!

    Poster is okay. But did anyone watch the Season III trailer on Jimmy Kimmel last night? I have to say that I was impressed. It has a dark, sombre feeling to it! I taped it on my phone and uploaded it to my FB page! Whehoo!

    Maybe….the image of the dragon is meant to throw us off a little bit? Maybe the dragons have grown. As in, NOW Dany is going to unleash hell and everyone who ever wronged her is going to PAY. But, I could be wrong. Hopefully there’ll be another poster before March 31…?
