The fantasy epic starring Dev Patel as the titular knight hits theaters in July, and A24 has released several new images of Patel in the role along with a production photo of director David Lowery.
The Green Knight is a new take on the classic Arthurian legend, with A24 also releasing a synopsis of the film.
“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.”
