A24 has usually have one big summer horror/genre film, with last year’s being Midsommar, and this year they are putting a new twist on Arthurian legend with The Green Knight. From director David Lowery, who previously directed films like A Ghost Story, Pete’s Dragon and The Old Man and The Gun, Dev Patel stars as Sir Gawain, one of King Arthur’s knights who takes on a challenge by the mysterious and supernatural Green Knight. Alicia Vikander, Sean Harris, Joel Edgerton, Barry Keoghan, and Sarita Choudhury co-star. The movie looks like it’s filtering the classic tale through in a way similar to A24’s The Witch where it appears like it will be a mix of extremely grounded realism and some fantastical elements but overall it looks pretty great. It’s out on May 29th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
