See the first footage from Game of Thrones season 6 in HBO promo

Game of Thrones teases are like buses; you wait ages for one, and then three come at once! First came the spoilerific teaser poster, which was followed by a teaser without any actual new footage.

Included in the footage are shots of Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), a short-haired Cersei Lannister (Lena Heady), and Iwan Rheon's Ramsay Bolton, marching troops into battle.

Game of Thrones season 6 will debut in April 2016.
