10 movies to watch if you like 'Game of Thrones'

Game of Thrones Season 7

Summary List Placement

 

Based on the bestselling series of books by George R.R. Martin, "Game of Thrones" is one of HBO's biggest hits.

The show ran for eight seasons and kept fans captivated with its fantasy setting, political turmoil, epic battles, and stellar cast. 

For fans looking for more "Game of Thrones"-style entertainment, here are 10 films to watch next.

"The King" (2019) is a film about power and deceit in 15th-century England.

In Netflix's "The King," young King Henry V (Timothée Chalamet) assumes the throne after his father's death — and then he must navigate war, betrayal, and political chaos.

The medieval film is based on several plays from William Shakespeare's "Henriad."

Although "Game of Thrones" was technically set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, the show's setting and political plots surrounding royalty and rulership are quite reminiscent of the ones found in "The King."

"The King" is available to stream on Netflix. 

 



"A Knight's Tale" (2001) stars Heath Ledger as a young knight.

In Brian Helgeland's 2001 film "A Knight's Tale," the late, great Heath Ledger stars as a squire named William Thatcher who poses as a knight and begins competing in and winning various tournaments. 

The film has a lighter tone than "Game of Thrones," and could be something fans of Tyrion Lannister's humor will enjoy.

And like the HBO show, this movie has many medieval-style elements, such as jousting, magic, and, of course, knights. 

"A Knight's Tale" can be streamed on Showtime.



"Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (1975) is a comedy set in medieval times.

If you need a break from the tension, drama, and gore of "Game of Thrones" but want to stay immersed in the medieval-style setting, put on "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

This 1975 British comedy puts a hilarious twist on the dark circumstances of the Middle Ages. The film follows the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table as they search for the Holy Grail. Along the way, they discover a bevy of absurd obstacles.

"Monty Python and the Holy Grail" is available to stream on Netflix. 



"Excalibur" (1981) is a medieval drama with a star-studded cast.

1981's "Excalibur" stars Liam Neeson, Helen Mirren, Nigel Terry, and Patrick Stewart.

The movie tells the legend of Prince Arthur, the Round Table, and the iconic sword called Excalibur. It contains excellent fight sequences, talented actors, and secret romances — everything a "Game of Thrones" fan could want.

"Excalibur" can be streamed on Starz.



Orlando Bloom stars in "Kingdom of Heaven" (2005) as a blacksmith thrust into political and religious turmoil.

Directed by Ridley Scott, "Kingdom of Heaven" is a historical drama starring Orlando Bloom, Eva Green, Liam Neeson, and Marton Csokas. It also features a face "Game of Thrones" fans are sure to recognize — Iain Glen, who stars as Jorah Mormont on the HBO Series. 

In the film, Bloom plays Balian, a common blacksmith who, following the loss of his wife, becomes a crusader headed to Jerusalem with his father. Balian soon gets wrapped up in an intense battle between two religious groups. 

These religious undercurrents are similar to how "Game of Thrones" uses characters' beliefs in the Old and New Gods to drive certain plots. 

"Kingdom of Heaven" can be rented or purchased on Amazon Prime.



The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy (2001 - 2003) creates an equally immersive and impressive universe as "Game of Thrones."

Like "Game of Thrones," the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy is based on a bestselling fantasy novel series.

The J. R. R. Tolkien-penned series of books created an entire universe, complete with a unique cast of characters, now-iconic fantasy creatures, and ages of lore.

Set in Middle-earth, the "Lord of the Rings" films follow a hobbit named Frodo Baggins as he and his Fellowship go on a quest to destroy the One Ring. 

Although the first installment, "Lord of the Rings" is only available for rent or purchase online, "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" and "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" are both available to stream on Netflix.



"Dragonslayer" (1981) is a George R.R. Martin-approved fantasy film.

Directed by Matthew Robbins, "Dragonslayer" is a must-see for fans of "Game of Thrones" thanks to its cult-classic status, excellent characters, and impressive dragons.

"Dragonslayer" follows a sorcerer's apprentice named Galen as he journeys to confront the terrible dragon who is terrorizing the land of Urland.

"GoT" author George R. R. Martin even included the movie on his list of top fantasy films for the Daily Beast.

"Dragonslayer" can be purchased on Amazon Prime.



"The Princess Bride" (1987) is also a fantasy story based on a book.

Rob Reiner's 1987 film adaptation of William Goldman's 1973 novel "The Princess Bride" is a fan-favorite film in the fantasy genre.

The story is about a young and handsome farmhand named Wesley who journeys with a ragtag group of companions to find his one true love, Princess Buttercup. 

Much like "Game of Thrones," the film is known for its excellent cast — Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, André the Giant, and Wallace Shawn.

The film is available to stream on Disney Plus.



"Troy" (2004) is an epic period film inspired by a classic piece of literature.

The 2004 war drama "Troy" is sure to entertain "Game of Thrones" fans with its historical setting and flashy battle scenes.

Starring Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, Eric Bana, Brendan Gleeson, Brian Cox, and Westeros's own Sean Bean, the movie follows the clash of the ancient kingdoms of Troy and Sparta.

Inspired by Homer's epic poem "The Iliad," the film is filled with political and physical battles, familial drama, and romance. As a bonus, the script was written by "GoT" showrunner David Benioff.

"Troy" can be streamed on Amazon Prime.



"Stardust" (2007) is a fantasy adventure-romance film.

Starring Sienna Miller, Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ricky Gervais, and Robert De Niro with narration by Ian McKellen, 2007's "Stardust" is an adventure-romance that's based on a graphic novel by Neil Gaiman.

In the film, a young man goes on a trek to collect a fallen star to give to his lover. Instead, he encounters danger and a cast of eccentric, fantastical characters. 

What follows is an adventure of love, battles for power, and mystical creatures that "Game of Thrones" fans will surely enjoy. 

"Stardust" can be streamed on Showtime.
