The Game of Thrones stars you'll soon be seeing on the big screen


Winter has come. Game of Thrones season eight arrives imminently and promises to leave us all stunned. If you need a reminder, here is the trailer.

So we thought we'd round up some of the Game of Thrones stars making their way to the big screen this year...

Sophie Turner

Appearing in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Released 7th June

The tortured Sansa Stark has been through an awful lot throughout the history of Game of Thrones, and Sophie Turner's performance has kept us gripped throughout.

Turner will be tapping into her talents later this year in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, reprising her role as the younger Jean Grey as she struggles with her burgeoning Phoenix powers.

Maisie Williams

Appearing in X-Men: The New Mutants

Released 2nd August

Sophie Turner isn't the only Stark actress getting in on the X-Men action this year.

Maisie Williams, who has transformed plucky Arya Stark from vulnerable girl into avenging angel, will be appearing in the horror-inflected X-Men: The New Mutants, which takes a far more sinister look at a group of heroes struggling to come to terms with their abilities.

Kit Harington

Appearing in How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Released Out now

Actor Kit Harington is one of the backbones of Game of Thrones lore – his Jon Snow has been through more than most, even being resurrected from the dead to become King in the North.

He can currently be heard reprising his vocal role as Eret in the third and final instalment of the How To Train Your Dragon series, The Hidden World.

Peter Dinklage

Appearing in The Angry Birds 2 Movie

Released 11th October

Emmy award-winner Peter Dinklage's Tyrion Lannister is, for many, the bruised, beating heart of Game of Thrones, and we wait with anticipation to see how Tyrion's journey will conclude in season eight.

Dinklage appeared in last year's Avengers: Infinity War as Thor-assisting King of the Dwarves Eitri. Sadly he won't be back in 2019's Avengers: Endgame, but he will be reprising his role as Mighty Eagle in animated sequel The Angry Birds Movie 2 Movie.

Lena Headey

Appearing in Fighting With My Family

Released Out now

Lena Headey's performance as scheming Cersei Lannister has been one of the show's most compelling, re-defining the essence of ruthless as the character endlessly grasps for more power to preserve her family name.

This March, Headey lightens up in irreverent comedy-drama Fighting With My Family, based on the life of Norwich wrestler turned WWE star Saraya 'Paige' Bevis. Headey plays Saraya's salt of the Earth mother Julia in Stephen Merchant's directorial debut, produced by Dwayne Johnson.

Richard Madden

Appearing in Rocketman

Released 24th May

Admittedly, Richard Madden signed out of Game of Thrones as Rob Stark during the infamously horrific Red Wedding massacre. But the legacy established by his character continues to resonate throughout the show.

Later this summer the Bodyguard star will be appearing as Elton John's manager John Reid in music biopic Rocketman. Kingsman's Taron Egerton will be donning the gaudy spectacles as the music icon.

Emilia Clarke

Appearing in Last Christmas

Released 15th November

Although Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen will be facing her greatest battle yet in the final season of Game of Thrones, it's a relatively quiet year movie-wise for actress Emilia Clarke.

Having appeared as Qi'Ra in last year's Solo: A Star Wars Story, Clarke will next be spotted on our screens in Last Christmas, the latest comedy from Spy and Bridesmaids director Paul Feig.

Jason Momoa

Appearing in The LEGO Movie 2

Released Out now

He immortalised brutish Dothraki chief Khal Drogo in the first two seasons of Game of Thrones, and has recently enjoyed blockbuster success with DC comic book epic Aquaman.

So you can't blame Jason Momoa for taking it relatively easy this year. That said, he reprises the voice of Aquaman to amusing effect in animation sequel The LEGO Movie 2.

Which of these movies are you most looking forward to seeing? Let us know @Cineworld.
