Clearly, just as the first two seasons were jampacked with astonishing deaths and horrifying betrayals, Season 3 will continue to deliver all the expected shocks.

I am not alone in eagerly awaiting the arrival of "Game of Thrones" Season Three on March 31.

The new trailer has landed, titled "The Beast." Clearly, just as the first two seasons were jampacked with astonishing deaths and horrifying betrayals, Season 3 will continue to deliver all the expected shocks. The trailer features a multitude of characters and iconic moments from the third book in George R.R. Martin's fantasy series, including the schemes, plots and battling of Mance Rayder, Lady Catelyn Stark, Rob Stark, Jon Snow, Ygritte, Tyrion Lannister, Arya Stark, and Daenerys Targaryen and her fleet of dragons. (EW has a preview.)

HBO is hosting a gala premiere at the Chinese Theater with an afterparty at the Hollywood Roosevelt Monday night, which I will report on tomorrow, and the TV Academy is hosting the sold-out "An Evening with 'Game of Thrones'" on March 19 at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, which will be webcast the Emmys site.

The third season premieres on HBO on March 31.
