Stunning Dark and Twisted Trailer for High Fantasy Film ‘The Green Knight’

Dev Patel leads an outstanding cast in acclaimed director David Lowery’s high fantasy drama from A24 Films, The Green Knight.

Lowery’s new film is based on the 14th-century tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, an Arthurian legend that sees a knight (Patel) accept a challenge from a monstrous green knight to strike them with their sword, and in a year, the green knight would return the blow.

We can see that plot point conveyed in the trailer for the film but what happens next is a mystery.

As the year passes, Patel’s character experiences numerous weird, wonderful, and magical things, presumably haunted by the impending returning of the favour by the mysterious green knight.

Being an A24 film, the production house that brought us terrifying films like Hereditary (2018) and Midsommar (2019), we can be sure to expect some brutally disturbing images in this film.

The brutal and disturbing imagery is always juxtaposed with some stunning visuals of the high fantasy variety, which we can see in the trailer below.

At a minimum, The Green Knight will surely be a feast for the senses, but with the director of The Old Man and the Gun (2018) and A Ghost Story (2017) at the helm, we can expect good things.

The Green Knight is due for release on 30 July 2021.
