Arthurian legend — that is, mythical tales of King Arthur, Camelot, and the Knights of the Round Table — is deeply ingrained in western culture. But these medieval folktales also have a darker side that often is buried in modern retellings. The folks at A24, however, appear to lean into these horror aspects with their unique adaptation of one of the most famous fables in ‘The Green Knight.’

The film is helmed by David Lowery (The Old Man & The Gun, A Ghost Story) and stars Dev Patel (Lion, Slumdog Millionaire) as Sir Gawain, King Arthur’s impulsive and audacious nephew looking to test his mettle by confronting the titular Green Knight. Of course, as is so often the case, things don’t quite go according to plan and he must face off against a bevy of dangerous foes both human and supernatural along the way. Set for a May 29th, 2020 release, this moody, knightly adventure flick is sure to drum up plenty of interest amongst lovers of the macabre and morbid.
