First UK Trailer for 'Robert the Bruce' Film Starring Angus Macfadyen
"We have known Scotland clutched in the grip of a mighty hand… now we'll set her free!" Signature Ent. in the UK has unveiled a trailer for the action drama Robert the Bruce, made by Australian director Richard Gray (of Mine Games, Blinder, The Lookalike, Broken Ghost). Robert the Bruce is a hard-hitting historical epic covering the turbulent time after William Wallace's victories depicted in Braveheart. The epic story of one of Scotland's greatest heroes will be premiering at the 73rd Edinburgh Film Festival this month. Angus Macfadyen stars (playing the same role he played in Braveheart) with Jared Harris, Zach McGowan, Daniel Portman, Emma Kenney, Melora Walters, Anna Hutchison, Talitha Eliana Bateman, Patrick Fugit, Gabriel Bateman, and Kevin McNally. This also features original music from Scottish national treasure Lulu. Looks a bit dry and talky, but perhaps still an invigorating film about a great legend.
Here's the official UK trailer (+ quad poster) for Richard Gray's Robert the Bruce, direct from YouTube:
Scotland 1306, Robert the Bruce (Angus Macfadyen) crowns himself King and takes the ambition of Scotland’s freedom as his own. But he cannot overcome England’s power: defeated again and again, his army is scattered and Scotland’s nobility abandons him. Hunted, with a price on his head, he finds himself alone and wounded. The cause of freedom seems lost once more. Hidden secretly in a secluded croft of a clan pledged to England, and close to death Robert is nursed back to life by a young widow and her orphaned children. His determination to do what is right, regardless of the cost, reinvigorates his passion to rise again. But it’s not revenge he desires. It’s freedom. Now. Robert the Bruce is directed by Australian filmmaker Richard Gray, director of the films Summer Coda, Mine Games, Blinder, The Lookalike, Sugar Mountain, and Broken Ghost previously. The screenplay is by Eric Belgau and Angus Macfadyen. Signature will release Robert the Bruce in UK theaters starting June 28th. No US release is set yet. First impression?
Here we go again.

Films are overestimating the kings. They are boring and narcistic, at best ...

Not even the guy from Chernobyl can save this... Looks boring af, and the main character doesn't suit the role.

He's the same guy that played him in Braveheart, a bit older and fatter now..lol. I'm guessing this is a direct sequel to Braveheart then?
nate on Jun 7, 2019
lol they should have cgi de-aged him

Wow, someone really needs to take a chill pill. All I said was that he’s a lot older now than when he played him in Braveheart. Is that not that truth? Some people just waiting to spazz on anything.

Apparently if you're not related to Robert The Bruce you have no rights to say anything here. That will be all sir!

I can't see this movie making a nickel...I mean, in the States who ever heard of this Bruce guy and who cares? Me thinks this type of movie needs a big star to draw attention to it and without such a star it really has no chance.

nothing to do with the movie, but the fact that there is so much ignorance about history is appalling. didnt you learn european history in school? robert the bruce was probably the greatest scots king who fought successfully against the much more powerful english army to end their tyrannical occupation. its fascinating. i feel sorry for those of you who dont know & dont care about all these important & fascinating historical events, whether in the US, UK, or anywhere else in our world. expand your mind, read some books.

Thank You. He is my 21st Great Grandfather and I am fiercely proud of this heritage.

as well you should be. robert the bruce is still discussed in military schools for his famous successful guerrilla tactics against the greater english army. he was an heir to the throne, a fugitive, a king, a warrior with a vision, etc.... a fascinating man of history.

*AHEM*. Me & my 3000+ family members care & have seeing as how he's my 21rst Great Grandfather. Many American families are related to him. Maybe educate yourself before you post? Last several films about Robert The Bruce did quite well, by the way and there's also "Braveheart", a blockbuster in which Robert The Bruce paid a critical part. Sad when Americans know so little about world history. 🙁
