HBO’s massive marketing campaign around the Game of Thrones IMAX release continued today with teaser trailer featuring scenes from the two season four episodes — “Watchers on the Wall” and “The Children” — the network will screen in select large-format theaters from January 31 to February 5. Exciting, but it’s nothing most Thrones fans haven’t replayed a dozen times over the last 10 months.

The trailer’s real prize is another quick glimpse of season five. Last month’s HBO sizzle reel provided first looks at Arya, Tyrion, Jon, and Cersei. Tuesday’s (perhaps appropriately short) preview gives us an idea of how well — or poorly — the Westerosi postal service treats important cargo. We’ve embedded the footage below. Ready? Here it comes.

Just a little longer now.

Almost there.

Hold.

Hoooooooooooooooooooold!!!

HOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!

Sigh…it was sooooo much better in the book, amirite guys? IN CHAPTER 234 ON PAGE 12,304, GEORGE R.R. MARTIN SPECIFICALLY STATES THAT THE BOX WAS MADE FROM THE BARK OF ANCIENT WIREWOOD TREES AND THIS VERSION IS CLEARLY FASHIONED FROM SPRUCE! IS NOTHING SACRED, HBO?!?!

Check out the full IMAX trailer below, and remember to subscribe to HBO — or offer a friend a Natty Ice sixer in exchange for his HBO Go password — before the season five premiere on April 12 at 9 pm.
