The Last Knights

It's been 11 years since Clive Owen strapped on some armor as King Arthur in the 2004 medieval action drama of the same name, and now he's picking up the sword again in The Last Knights. The film was shot in 2012 by Japanese filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya (The Legend of Goemon), but it's been sitting on a shelf waiting for release since then. And now that the first trailer has arrived, it's easy to see why no one has been clamoring to get this movie on the big screen. The epic follows Owen as a fallen warrior who rises against a corrupt and sadistic ruler (Aksel Hennie) to avenge his dishonored master (Morgan Freeman). Watch?

Here's the first trailer for Kazuaki Kiriya's The Last Knights from USA Today:

The Last Knights

The Last Knights is directed by Kazuaki Kiriya (The Legend of Goemon) with a script from Michael Konyves (Barney’s Version). The film follows Clive Owen (Sin City, The International, Children of Men) as Raiden, a heroic warrior who rises up with his men on a mission of revenge for their dishonored master (Morgan Freeman of Oblivion, The Shawshank Redemption), cut down by the hands of a corrupt ruler (Aksel Hennie of Headhunders, Hercules). Cliff Curtis also stars in the film which hits VOD & limited theaters April 3rd.

    Ow common! Not that politically correct cast again...

      because... ah nevermind. We know why you feel that way. If only the country whom produced these movies would just keep it all one color, right? Because this movie was based on actual events anyway, right?
      • Joe Kundlak
        No, I am not talking about any historical accuracy or a single-color cast. I am talking about many of those mediocre movies that for some unknown reason have to have ALL of the races and skin colors in, just to (presumably) satisfy ALL viewer categories. Why can't they invent an appropriatelz defined/explained in-story realm? This just seems so cheap (let's include everything, just to be on the safe side and not have too much work with it). And that is on top of how cheesy the movie looks itself.

    It's always nice (as a fellow Norwegian) seeing Hennie getting international work. Film doesn't look all that great, though.
  • Chrisscros
    So much CGI. Was excited for the movie but those landscape views don't look real at all
  • tvLogic
    Is Morgan Freeman doing a parody of his own voice now?
    • Miguel Hernandez
  • Jackie Jormpjomp
    I realize this is not a popular opinion and that is really a glorified B movie but I want to see this. I make no excuses.
  • HarryFiddleSticks
    Clive looks a bit bored
  • ProjectionistHP
    Doesn't look too over the top for the genre, and i'm allways down for some sword fighting. I'll watch it if it fits my schedule.
    I mean...I will bite. Maybe in the same vein as those 'lost legion' films from some years ago.

    He should worry about doing The Knick. This looks like poop stains.
