One year hence… A24’s epic fantasy-horror flick The Green Knight is finally coming to theatres this summer, and the official trailer promises a dark and mysterious take on Arthurian legend.
Written and directed by David Lowery (A Ghost Story), the film 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.
