Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.12.21] drama fantasy

Over the years "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" has seen its fair share of adaptations but few have been as exciting as David Lowery's upcoming adaptation The Green Knight.

This retelling of the epic poem stars Dev Patel as Gawain, Arthur's knight who takes up the challenge posed by the Green Knight: strike him down and keep his axe but in one year's time, the knight who takes up the challenge must accept a return blow. And so, nearly a year to the day of cutting off the Green Knight's head, Gawain sets off to fulfill his end of the bargain.

Alongside Patel, the movie also stars Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, Alicia Vikander, Kate Dickie, and Sarita Choudhury.

This trailer is not quite as mysterious as the first and while we see quite a bit more of the world Lowery and his team have created for this epic story, it's still not fully clear how closely it'll follow the source material.

In truth, it really doesn't matter much but as an ardent fan of Arthurian legend, my excitement is twofold: I'm curious to see Lowery's take on the well-known story and I'm curious to see the stunning visual production that he and his team have put together.

The Green Knight opens July 30.
