Dev Patel Embarks on a Quest in The Green Knight Trailer


A24 has released The Green Knight trailer and poster, which give you a first look at writer and director David Lowery’s anticipated new film. The movie is scheduled for a May 29 release.

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.

From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.

The movie also stars Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sarita Choudhury, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Barry Keoghan, and Ralph Ineson. Principal photography for The Green Knight began in March 2019.

The story is based on the poem of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. According to Wikipedia, the poem “describes how Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur’s Round Table, accepts a challenge from a mysterious ‘Green Knight’ who dares any knight to strike him with his axe if he will take a return blow in a year and a day.

“Gawain accepts and beheads him with his blow, at which the Green Knight stands up, picks up his head and reminds Gawain of the appointed time. In his struggles to keep his bargain, Gawain demonstrates chivalry and loyalty until his honour is called into question by a test involving Lady Bertilak, the lady of the Green Knight’s castle.”

David Lowery’s credits include Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (2013), Pete’s Dragon (2016), and The Old Man & the Gun.

Dev Patel starred in Slumdog Millionaire (2008), The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2012) and its 2015 sequel, Chappie (2015), HBO’s The Newsroom, and Lion (2016).

Alicia Vikander has appeared in TV’s Andra Avenyn, Pure (2010), Anna Karenina (2012), A Royal Affair (2012), Testament of Youth (2014), Ex Machina (2014), The Danish Girl (2015), Jason Bourne (2016), and Tomb Raider.

Joel Edgerton has appeared in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones (2002), Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith (2005), The Square (2008), Animal Kingdom (2010), Warrior (2011), Wish You Were Here (2012), Zero Dark Thirty (2012), Felony (2013), The Great Gatsby (2013), Black Mass (2015), Loving (2016), It Comes at Night (2017) and Red Sparrow (2018).
