The final trailer for the highly anticipated Netflix historical drama The King has finally been released.
The trailer features Timothée Chalamet as newly crowned King Henry V along with his friend Falstaff, discussing pressures of the court. Robert Pattinson, playing the Dauphin of France, is seen as Henry V’s rival in a high-stakes war. Check out the tense trailer below.
According to a description by Netflix, the film is about “Hal (Chalamet), [a] wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, [who] has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the aging alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Edgerton).”
The King was directed by David Michôd from a script by both Michôd and Edgerton. The supporting cast are Tom Glynn-Carney, Sean Harris, Lily-Rose Depp, and Thomasin McKenzie. It will be released in select theaters and streamed directly on Netflix starting November 1.
