Chalk it up to me simply not paying attention, but I had no idea David Lowery had a new movie coming this year. He captured my attention on 2017 with his haunting and meditative drama “A Ghost Story” and followed it by working with Robert Redford in “The Old Man & the Gun”. Lowery’s latest “The Green Knight” sees him putting his own unique spin on Authurian medieval fantasy. I’m in.
“The Green Knight” sports a killer cast led by Dev Patel. He plays King Arthur’s impulsive and obstinate nephew Sir Gawain who sets off on a quest to challenge the mysterious Green Knight. The film also stars Joel Edgerton, Alicia Vikander, and Sean Harris among others. The first trailer features an eerie and slightly twisted vibe and shows off Lowery’s knack for visual storytelling.
“The Green Knight” is set for release on May 29th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
