Game of Thrones stars are always busy, but you’ll be hard pressed to find one with a bigger February than John Bradley, who played the brainy Samwell Tarly for eight season of HBO’s fantasy hit. On February 4, Bradley stars in Moonfall as a conspiracy theories who figures out that the moon is going to crash into Earth, and has to warn the only people badass enough to stop it (disgraced astronauts played by Patrick Wilson and Halle Berry).

Moonfall is directed by Roland Emmerich, the guy behind other disaster films like Independence DayThe Day After Tomorrow and 2012. This new film definitely takes after those movies, which is to say it looks really stupid (from what I can tell from the trailer the moon is alive?) but also kind of fun.

And if that’s not enough John Bradley action, he’s also starring alongside Jenneifer Lopez and Owen Wilson in the romantic comedy Marry Me on February 11. That’s two major Hollywood movies in the space of a week! Well done, Sam.

Bradley isn’t the only Game of Thrones veteran with a new movie coming out. Check out the trailer for A Taste of Hunger, a Danish film starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) as part of a husband-wife team who try to open their own restaurant, despite the strain in puts on their family life:

A Taste of Hunger is out in theaters and on demand on January 28.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (the Mountain) has never read the Game of Thrones books

And now, a confession from Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who so memorably played Gregor” the Mountain” Clegane on Game of Thrones: the actor and professional strongman asked for book recommendations on Twitter, and revealed that he’s never read George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series:

I’m thinking the Mountain should host an online book club.

Finally, for no reason whatsoever, here’s Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) modeling some casual wear:

You are very welcome.
