A24 waste no time after The Lighthouse received its UK release earlier this month, before dropping a taste of their upcoming medieval fantasy, The Green Knight. Lead by Dev Patel, filmmaker David Lowery also casts Ralph Ineson, Joel Edgerton, Kate Dickie and Alicia Vikander. The official synopsis notes:
“An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight 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. 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. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.”
