HBO will preview Game Of Thrones early

Not 24 hours after we reported that George R.R. Martin is considering releasing his next novel well before the predicted date of “never,” HBO has announced that its Martin-based drama series Game Of Thrones will be showing up early as well. According to EW, you can catch the first episode a 15-minute preview on April 3, two weeks before its official April 17 debut date, and get a jump on all the swords-and-incest-and-Peter-Dinklage springtime fun you’ve been so patiently awaiting. And unlike Martin’s (admittedly passionate) assurances, that seems like a date you can count on. HBO has also released its first full-length trailer for the show, which you can check out below. [UPDATE: EW has since changed their report from "first episode" to "15-minute preview," so it looks like that's what's happening instead.]
