If you’re into fantasy adventure movies, The Green Knight is just for you. This movie adaptation is based on the Arthurian story, “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.”
It all begins when the Green Knight, a green supernatural being, steps foot into King Arthur’s court. He creates this tricky game for any knight who dares to play. The Green Knight taunts King Arthur, leading King Arthur to accept the Green Knight’s challenge. Sir Gawain, King Arthur’s nephew and loyal knight, quickly takes the place of King Arthur to show his loyalty.
The game goes like this: Behead the Green Knight with an ax, and in return, the Green Knight gets to do the same back a year and a day later. Not really thinking things through and more focused on protecting the King, Sir Gawain accepts the challenge.
Fast forward a year and a day later, Sir Gawain sets out on a heroic adventure to capture the Green Knight. Sir Gawain believes that by confronting the Green Knight, he’ll prove his worth and honor to his people.
This synopsis sounds interesting and action-packed. If you look at the trailer below, this movie looks like it could have a friendly rivalry with The Witcher because of its quality.
