A24 has set a new release date for its upcoming R-rated fantasy horror film The Green Knight. The film will now (hopefully) hit theatres on July 30th, 2021.
Written and directed by David Lowery (A Ghost Story), The Green Knight is based on the Arthurian legend and tells 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.
Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Last Airbender) stars as Sir Gawain. The cast also includes Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina), Joel Edgerton (It Comes at Night), Barry Keoghan (The Killing of a Sacred Deer), and Ralph Ineson (The Witch).
