‘Game of Thrones’ Season 3 Teaser Poster Offers a Stony Hint of Things to Come

HBO's first offering from the upcoming third season of "Game of Thrones" doesn't offer much in the way of clues — but you're probably excited anyway

"Game of Thrones" Season 3 is coming … eventually … and HBO has delivered the first enticing glimpse of the upcoming dragons-and-gore extravaganza, in the form of a teaser poster for the season.

The poster reveals very little about the third installment of the series, which is adapted from the George R. R. Martin fantasy book series "A Song of Fire and Ice." Except that the season will kick off March 31, 2013, which you probably already knew. And that there will be swords involved. Which you definitely already knew.
