Along with the new teaser trailer for Game of Thrones, which we showcased yesterday, HBO has released a dozen high-resolution images from its upcoming adaptation of George R.R. Martin's bestselling fantasy epic A Song of Ice and Fire.
Most of the photos we saw, on a smaller scale, last week when Entertainment Weekly teased its new issue. But four of the images are new shots of Lena Headey as Cersei, Sean Bean as Eddard “Ned” Stark, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, and Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister.
Set to debut in spring 2011, Game of Thrones takes its name from the first novel in Martin’s planned seven-book epic, set on a mythical, medieval continent torn between a dynastic civil war, a threat of invasion from the north and the impending return of the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.
