A new trailer for A24’s The Green Knight is here, and it sees Dev Patel starring as King Arthur’s nephew, Sir Gawain.
“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,” a synopsis reads. “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. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.”
The new trailer offers a glimpse at the eerie adaptation of the 14th century Middle English poem, with ominous, echoing voiceovers and cult-like clips at the round table. “Oh, greatest of Kings,” The Green Knight says in the clip. “Let one of your knights try to land a blow against me. Indulge me in this game.”
