The Green Knight is a reimagining of an Arthurian legend starring Dev Patel. The studio, A24, is responsible for other arthouse genre films including, The Witch, Hereditary, and Ex Machina. The trailer focuses on the recurring visual motif of the circle and displays great use of practical effects for the Green Knight and the giants.
I’ve felt that too many contemporary fantasy films have tried to impress audiences by throwing too many visuals on screen. With a micro-budget project like The Green Knight, the instances of magic are made more impactful by their scarcity.
The Green Knight is scheduled for release in theatres on July 30th in the States and August 6th in the UK.
