A24 debuts poster and trailer for The Green Knight
The story of the Green Knight is one I spent some time obsessed with as a kid after seeing the 1984 flick Sword of the Valiant with the late Sean Connery in the role. Now a new film is taking on the legacy of the famed character in the aptly named film The Green Knight starring Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sarita Choudhury, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Barry Keoghan and Ralph Ineson from Pete’s Dragon and A Ghost Story director David Lowery at the helm.
The Green Knight follows the story of Sir Gawain, 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.
While you have to wait until July 30th to see the film in theaters you can check out the trailer and poster here now from A24.
