Gory tale back on US screens
(04-04 10:26)

There will be blood. And nudity. And dragons.
Millions will tune in for the fourth season of medieval fantasy drama “Game of Thrones'' from Sunday as the hit show returns to US television screens, promising to deliver its usual mix of sex, violence and vengeance.
Since its debut in 2011, the HBO drama based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling novels about a struggle for power between feuding clans in seven mythical kingdoms has won a devoted fan base to establish itself as the star of the US cable channel's stable.
All the signs are that fans of the show will not be disappointed by the 10-episode Season 4, which airs in the US from Sunday.
“Some of the most shocking, mind-blowing scenes of the entire series come from the end of this season,'' promised executive producer David Benioff in an extended teaser-trailer screened on HBO ahead of Sunday's opening episode.—AFP
