One of my most anticipated movies of 2021 is A24’s take on King Arthur… Well his nephew at least. The Green Knight has a new date of July 30th, 2021. The Green Knight is in fact rated R.
Here is the synopsis which sounds flat out amazing to me.
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.”
Also joining the cast is Joel Edgerton, Barry Keoghan, and Ralph Ineson.
Are you excited for The Green Knight? I know A24 comes with a required taste and their movies aren’t for everyone. I typically love A24 even though they have had some disappointing releases as of late.
