Game of Thrones’ last season ended last August 2017, and won’t be back for its final season until 2019. That’s a very long wait for fans who have spent their summer nights in the land of Westeros. To make the wait less painful and more meaningful for fans, we’ve compiled the list of movies where you’ll find members of the GoT cast this 2018:
Solo: A Star Wars Story
Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) stars in another awesome franchise, and that is none other than Star Wars. She joins the Han Solo prequel, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” as Qi’Ra. The film itself is facing a lot of criticism, with news of reshoots from a Star Wars leak thread on Reddit, and receiving less anticipation than expected from fans. But issues aside, we’re glad that we’ll get to see Emilia in Star Wars. Although there are no upcoming projects listed to her name this year, her appearance in this franchise might just be enough for us.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix
We first saw Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) play the role of Jean Grey last 2016 in “X-Men: Apocalypse”. This year, she returns to star in her new film, Dark Phoenix. The film is currently in post-production. Its release will be in November.
Aside from Dark Phoenix, we’ll be seeing Sophie in the full-length version of Andrew Bowler’s 2012 Oscar-n0minated short “Time Freak”, in the drama anthology “Berlin, I Love You,” and in the thriller “Huntsville” opposite Dylan McDermott.
X-Men: The New Mutants
Sophie’s not the only member from House Stark in the X-Men franchise. Maisie Williams, who plays Sophie’s on-screen sister Arya on Game of Thrones is now also officially part of the franchise. She’ll be appearing in X-Men: The New Mutants as Wolfsbane, a teenage Scottish girl who can partially or completely turn into a wolf. The New Mutants is set to premiere in April 2018.
This 2018, Maisie also stars in the drama “Departures”, about a terminally-ill teenager who sets out to fulfill her bucket list. Watch out for the animated film, “Early Man”, where Maisie gives voice to the character Goona.
We’ll also be seeing two of Game of Thrones’ most important supporting characters: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), and Carice Van Houten (the Red Priestess Melisandre) in Domino, a film by critically-acclaimed director Brian de Palma. According to IMDb, Domino tells the story of a Danish police officer who seeks justice for the murder of his partner.
Carice will also play a supporting role in “I Am Not a Bird”, a drama about an English language teacher set in the wild streets of Tokyo. The film is currently in production and will premiere later this year.
Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) stars in the British immigration drama, the Flood. Will we be seeing a Lannister and Mormont conspiring in this film? That remains to be seen.
Lena will also be playing Julia Knight in “Fighting with My Family”, a drama biopic about a wrestler and his family. The film is set for release in September of this year.
