15 new HBO 'Game of Thrones' photos? Hold the door!

Here's an official season 7 sneak peek at Cersei, Jaime, Daenerys, Tyrion, Jon Snow and other Westeros residents, courtesy of HBO.

"Game of Thrones" fans can be excused if their calendars look a bit messed up this year. Winter is coming, but in summer instead -- the HBO fantasy hit returns July 16.

Fans may not know if they'll need swimsuits or snowsuits, but for now, they can check out 15 new photos from the show released on Thursday.

There's Cersei and Jaime Lannister, the twincest twins, looking as if finally landing the throne at the cost of all their children might not be a great trade.

"You know, Luke and Leia were twins and they never had these kind of problems."


There's Daenerys, perhaps contemplating the cost of Dragon Chow these days.

"He's where? Talking to fish? I don't even -- who is Aquaman anyway?"


There's Tyrion, probably mentally practicing some awesomely funny yet poignant speech in his head.

"A Lannister always spays his pets."


There's Sansa, who's really come into her own as a Stark heir ever since she let the dogs out on her tormentor, Ramsay Bolton.

"Hmm, I wonder how tough it would be to push Littlefinger over this railing..."


And there's Jon Snow, for whom winter is always coming.

"Snow way am I still stuck at this Wall."
