A24 Always Delivers.
A24 remains one of my favorite publishers today. They are consistent in creating both artistic and truly unique visions without worrying about "Marketability". In an age of studios who play it safe, A24 seems to focus on the opposite. Director, David Lowery (A Ghost Story), presents to us his bizarre spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.
After so much hype and anticipation, we finally have a full trailer. The movie promises to be a true fantasy epic. The darker tone seems to have just enough horror for fans of the genre, while the fantasy elements undoubtedly look fascinating.
“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.”
The Green Knight readies for battle July 30, 2021, and is rated "R" for "Violence, some sexuality and graphic nudity"
