2020 is forming up to be an interesting year for motion pictures, and amongst the most interesting is David Lowery’s The Green Knight, a middle ages fantasy based upon Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
The first trailer for The Green Knight looks like a substantial departure from Lowery’s previous movies, The Old Guy & a ghost and the weapon Story, however it still showcases Lowery’s precise sense of design and smooth mixing of the real and the fantastical. Dev Patel stars as Gawain, with Sean Harris as King Arthur, Joel Edgerton and Alicia Vikander as figures Gawain satisfies on his journey, and Ralph Ineson as the Green Knight.
There are still lots of secrets, consisting of the nature of Gawain’s fox pal, the enormous hand securing down on the horizon, and simply how carefully Lowery’s adjustment will adhere to the poem and story it’s drawn from. Will it end as anticlimactically? Evaluating from the extreme the trailer, perhaps not.
The film is set to strike theaters on May29 Take a look at the first poster below.
