This morning the loooong awaited full trailer for A24’s upcoming film “The Green Knight” finally dropped. It was around a year ago that a well made teaser gave us our first look at this medieval fantasy from writer-director David Lowery (“Pete’s Dragon”, “A Ghost Story”). Now we have an even better taste of what Lowery and company and cooking up. And knowing the film is only a couple of months away amps up the excitement and anticipation.
Adding to the allure is the cast led by Dev Patel who plays Sir Gawain, the reckless and strong-willed nephew of the legendary King Arthur. Joining him is Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, and Barry Keoghan among others. The story follows Gawain as he sets out to confront the Green Knight, contending with all sorts of obstacles (both man and beast) along the way. Oh, and I forgot to mention the talking fox! Lowery has established himself as a filmmaker with a bold vision and that once again looks to be on full display. I can’t wait.
“The Green Knight” releases July 30th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
