The latest trailer for the HBO series has just been released, promising that Jon Snow's eventual battle against the White Walkers will not be the only major fight this July.

Jon Snow is the new King of the North, and half Targaryen, but we weren't sure how Sansa Stark was taking the proclamation. In an ideal world, the three claimants would put aside their differences and unite to face this common threat. It looks like the dragons are going to participating in quite a few scuffles this time around, and we even catch a glimpse of what appears to be Daenerys Targaryen's Unsullied army storming King's Landing. "It's always en real".

As with the trailer before this, we don't get to any in-depth looks at the major story arcs of season 7. Good luck with that.

New footage from season seven, which premiered at a Madrid Game Of Thrones exhibit for HBO Spain, previously revealed never-before-seen clips of the battle at Casterly Rock when Danerys bangs on its gates. More Starks quickly fill the picture, as Jon returns to the frozen Wall and Arya makes her way North.

Victor Martinez placed on DL with irregular heartbeat
Martinez will not accompany the team on their seven-game West Coast trip to Seattle and San Diego, beginning on Monday. There's not a treatment template for this because it's so unusual in professional sports.

The popular HBO programme, which is partly filmed in Northern Ireland, will begin its penultimate season on July 17. Cause the enemy is are real.

One of the biggest takeaways of trailer #2 is that Jon is trying to serve in a different role than we've seen him before: Mediator.

Watch the trailer, which is set to "Light of the Seven, " the awesome piano song that played as Cersei blew up the crypt in last season's finale, below. Whether its Jaime Lannister riding through fire, dragons coming into battle, Tormund slicing open foes or basically any other scene from the new trailer, everyone is battling.
