The King Trailer Starring Timothee Chalamet

Although David Michod’s last film, War Machine, failed to make much of an impression on anyone, Netflix is hoping that his next movie will make a much bigger splash as we head into awards season. The King is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, Henry IV, Part 2 and Henry V and it stars Timothee Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) in the title role. With an ensemble cast that includes Ben Mendelsohn, Joel Edgerton, Robert Pattinson, Sean Harris, Lily-Rose Depp and Thomasin McKenzie, the epic historical drama revolves around Henry V’s reluctant inheritance of the throne following the death of his father. The King will premiere at the Venice Film Festival next week before arriving on Netflix sometime this fall; check out the first trailer below and let us know what you think.
