Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel Trailer

thelastduel

Ridley Scott is back in historical epic mode with his upcoming film The Last Duel, based on the true story of France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris during the Hundred Years War. The movie stars Matt Damon and Adam Driver in the lead roles alongside Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) as Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, who bravely spoke out after being viciously assaulted by Le Gris. The story seems to have been chosen for its timeliness and relevance to the current #MeToo movement and it will apparently be told from multiple perspectives “in order to examine the immutable fact that although often multiple people who experience the same event come away with differing accounts, there can only be one truth.” Ben Affleck also co-stars and co-wrote the script with Damon and Nicole Holofcener (Can You Ever Forgive Me?). The Last Duel hits theatres on Oct. 15th; check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
