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


Winter has come. Game of Thrones Season 7 has begun. These are the regulars whom you can expect to see on your Cineworld screen very soon.

Jason Momoa

Appearing in: Justice League and Aquaman

Released: 17th November 2017 and 21st December 2018

The man mountain formerly known as the fearsome Khal Drogo will be making a bid for superstardom as the iconic Aquaman.

One of the lesser-known heroes from the DC stable, Aquaman still commands a sizeable following and Momoa's burly physique appears to be an excellent fit with the character's comic book appearance.

First up the king of Atlantis will need to learn to play with a wider team in Justice League, which pairs him with Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, among others. Originally helmed by Zack Snyder, the project is now being guided to completion by Avengers director Joss Whedon.

Then a year later, he'll be getting his own solo movie directed by The Conjuring and Furious 7 filmmaker James Wan.

Gwendoline Christie

Appearing in: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Released: 15th December 2017

Gwendoline, best known of course for playing Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones, made her Star Wars debut in 2015's The Force Awakens.

She played armoured, helmeted First Order commander Captain Phasma, but disappointingly she didn't get an awful lot to do in the movie aside from march around and look imposing.

Well this year's The Last Jedi is making amends by revealing the person beneath the mask. Check out the Vanity Fair cover.

Peter Dinklage

Appearing in: Avengers: Infinity War

Released: 4th May 2018

Let's face it, Peter is arguably the best actor in Game of Thrones. (Proceeds to duck and cover from imminent dragon attack.) And the man who has immortalised Tyrion Lannister will soon be making his second venture into the comic book realm following 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

No-one knows exactly who Peter will be playing in the epic Avengers smash-em-up, one that piles on not just the original team but also Tom Holland's Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy too. But he's a strong enough actor to make an impression among all those faces.

Behind the scenes shots from January showing him getting a striking hair dye job. Fans believe he is set to play Pip the Troll, a prince from the planet Laxidazia who was transformed into – yes – a troll. He was an antagonist for Adam Warlock, who was a major player in the comics that revolved around the infinity stones, and also has some history with established villain Thanos.

Emilia Clarke

Appearing in: Han Solo

Released: 25th May 2018

Daenerys herself will be flying in the Millennium Falcon alongside the space cowboy in his first ever solo movie. Clarke's character is as yet unnamed but she'll be starring opposite Hail, Caesar's Alden Ehrenreich as the youthful Solo.

With an exciting cast comprising Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, plus direction from LEGO Movie geniuses Phil Lord and Chris Miller, there's every hope this will continue the Star Wars anthology spin-offs in grand fashion.

"I genuinely can’t tell you anything other than Alden is magnificent, and it's a delight to do something on that level with really cool actors and nice people. But it's even scarier talking about that than Game of Thrones," Emilia says.

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