Game of Thrones is lauded for its unique fantasy world and the characters that live within it, but sometimes it’s good to step back and truly appreciate how gorgeous the show is.


YouTuber dragonmcmx has released a fan-made trailer for the season six episode “Battle of the Bastards” in the style of the latest trailer for Christopher Nolan’s much-anticipated war drama, Dunkirk. In the episode, Ramsay Bolton and Jon Snow fight to the death for control of the North, in an episode that’s won countless awards and accolade for its cinematic prowess—including seven Emmy awards, which is a record-breaking number for a single episode of television.

We’re still a few months away from the season seven debut of Game of Thrones, but the hype is never ending. It’s videos like this that further prove how Game of Thrones isn’t just a great fantasy show... it’s a great show, period.
