The Night is dark and full of terrors,” says the new Game of Thrones promo trailer.  And not much else.

Thrones fans hoping to catch some footage from the show’s upcoming second season were disappointed when the promo (which aired before Sunday’s second season premiere of Boardwalk Empire) offered little to go on apart from an ominous voice over and an interesting fiery ring.

Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin however recently told the Hollywood Reporter that he was looking forward to the Battle of Blackwater scene from his novel realized in episode nine of the new season.

That’s got a gigantic battle that’s very ambitious and expensive,” Martin said  “I’m looking forward to that with a mixture of anticipation and trepidation but we have a great director for that.  We signed Neil Marshall to direct that episode.”

Catch the trailer below. Game of Thrones returns to screens in 2012.
