It’s war!

Below are eight new photos from Sunday’s eagerly anticipated “Battle of the Bastards” episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones. The face-off has Jon Snow’s army up against a larger force led by the sinister Ramsay Bolton. The sequence, filmed last fall in Northern Ireland, has been described by showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss as the largest battle the show has ever shot.

Here’s a weary Jon Snow (Kit Harington), another of Snow facing down storming cavalry charge, a furious Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju), a shot of Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) on his horse, another of Ser Davos (Liam Cunningham), a charging Wun Wun, and a shot of Jon with his sister Sansa (Sophie Turner). The episode was directed by Miguel Sapochnik, who also helmed last year’s stunning “Hardhome” battle.
