Medieval fantasy films are a tried and true genre in filmmaking, entertaining moviegoers for decades. Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings franchise was a massive sweeping adventure that dominated pop culture, while Game of Thrones was the most popular show on TV during its tenure on HBO. Now Pete’s Dragon director Pete Lowery will put his own spin on the genre with the upcoming blockbuster The Green Knight.
The Green Knight is set in the days of King Arthur, but will follow a different set of characters. Slumdog Millionaire‘s Dev Patel stars as protagonist Sir Gawain, Arthur’s nephew. He sets off on a mission to find the Green Knight, who is supposed to be a giant green-skinned monster. The movie’s first trailer just arrived, check it out.
