From visionary writer-director-producer David Lowery (A Ghost Story, Pete’s Dragon) comes The Green Knight, a fresh new twist on the classic tale of the knights of the round table, from A24.
Following yesterday’s poster release, the trailer arrived this morning teasing a tale that is part fantasy, part horror.
The film is “An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger, and tester of men. Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger.”
Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Barry Keoghan, Ralph Ineson, and Sean Harris also star.
The Green Knight enters theaters on May 29th.
