April is almost over, and most years that would mean that Game of Thrones fans would currently be in the middle of the newest season of the hit fantasy series. But that's not the case this year. Season 7 doesn't kick off until July, leaving GoT fans with nothing to do but stare at their blank television screens for the next few months. But there is another option, thankfully. There are a bunch of movies starring Game of Thrones actors coming out this year that should help make the wait a little easier for even the most diehard of fans.
Due to the show's enormous popularity, a number of its stars have achieved massive levels of fame and gone on to star in hit movies over the past few years. Emilia Clarke was the star of Terminator: Genisys, Gwendoline Christie snagged high-profile roles in both the Star Wars and Hunger Games franchises, and Sophie Turner was picked to lead a new generation of mutants in X-Men: Apocalypse. Those were all big movies, and they should leave no doubt that Game of Thrones stars are taking over Hollywood. For more proof, look no further than the 17 upcoming films below that all found their stars in Westeros (or Essos).
