Horror And Fantasy Meet In First Stunning Trailer For The Green Knight

Dev Patel is Sir Gawain.


Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a 14th century legend set during the time of King Arthur, in which a Knight of the Round Tale enters into a deadly pact with an otherworldy being known as the Green Knight. It's been adapted to the screen twice so far, and this summer, a new version arrives. It's simply titled The Green Knight and the first trailer has been released.

Dev Patel (The Last Airbender) stars as Sir Gawain in this new version, with Sean Harris (Mission Impossible: Fallout) as King Arthur and Ralph Ineson (The Witch) as the Green Knight. The movie looks like a striking blend of fantasy and horror, with lots of weird, stylish imagery and a frankly terrifying Green Knight. Check the trailer out below, and see the movie's equally weird poster at the end of this story.

The Green Knight is directed by David Lowery, whose previous movies include the 2016 Disney remake of Pete's Dragon and the 2018's crime drama The Old Man & The Gun, which starred Robert Redford in potentially his final performance. The Green Knight also stars Joel Edgerton (Bright), Alicia Vikander (Tom Raider), and Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk), and releases on May 29.
