Directed and co-written by David Michôd, with his Animal Kingdom star Joel Edgerton co-starring and co-writing, his The Rover star Robert Pattinson supporting, and Timothée Chalamet in the lead role, The King looks like a hell of a Prestige offering from Netflix.
Have a look with the film’s first trailer, featuring Chalamet as a reluctant King Henry V taking on the throne despite his dopey haircut. Edgerton plays the guy with the somehow even dopier haircut, and Pattinson seems like someone doing Game of Thrones cosplay but you can’t quite place who he’s meant to be. Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn and Lily-Rose Depp are also lurking around in the candlelit corridors.
The King hits select theaters and Netflix later this fall.
