A24 has debuted a brand new trailer for the latest adaptation of one of the Arthurian legends, The Green Knight. The movie written and directed by David Lowery should have debuted last year. However, the COVID-19 outbreak forced the producers to change the plans. And now the upcoming fantasy movie has a new release date, on top of the freshly released trailer. The video features the movie’s peculiar imagery and offers an innovative take on Sir Gawain’s legend. This time, the visuals push the fantasy element as much as possible, offering a closer look at the mysterious Green Knight and at some bizarre, gargantuan kids. As in every good fable, the protagonist will also have a talking animal as a companion, in this case a fox.

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. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.
The Green Knight will debut in theaters on July 30.
