Netflix has released the brand new teaser trailer for director David Michôd‘s Netflix Original Film, THE KING, which launches in selected UK cinemas and on Netflix globally this Autumn.
Co-written by Michôd and Joel Edgerton, and based on William Shakespeare’s “Henry IV, Part 1”, “Henry IV, Part 2“, and “Henry V”, the film stars Timothée Chalamet as Prince Hal/Henry V, alongside Joel Edgerton, Robert Pattinson,Ben Mendelsohn, Sean Harris, Lily-Rose Depp, and Thomasin McKenzie.
Hal (Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, 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 ageing alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Edgerton).
