The final trailer for the Netflix film The King is brutal and unflinching in its presentation of the opponents on the other side of the battlefield of King Henry V (Timothée Chalamet). The English king, also known as Hal, inherits a war with France along with the crown after the death of his father. The Dauphin of France (Robert Pattinson) is casually arrogant in his challenges to England, exuding confidence from experience that Hal does not have. While the French army is a massive imposing force, there may be opponents lingering amongst Hal’s own. “They have their own kingdoms behind their eyes,” his sister warns him of his comrades.
The script was co-written by director David Michôd (The Rover) and Joel Edgerton, who stars as Falstaff, an aging knight loyal to Hal. Producers include Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Liz Watts, Michôd and Edgerton.
The King will be released on Nov. 1 on Netflix. Watch the final trailer below and see everything else Netflix is adding next month here.
