Ineson plays the not-so-jolly green giant in David Lowery’s upcoming movie The Green Knight, which also stars Dev Patel as Sir Gawain.
A24 have now released this short film Legends Never Die: An Oral History of ‘Sir Gawain and The Green Knight,’ narrated by Ineson — a crash course on the 14th century epic poem that inspired Lowery’s film.
Watch it below, and remember — chivalry is not dead.
Here’s the movie synopsis:
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.
The Green Knight is released in the US on 20 July and in the UK on 6 August 2021. You can watch the trailer and check out images from the movie, or scroll down for more recently-released pics.
