Prepare for all sorts of epic fantasy adventuring with flaming heads, talking foxes, giants and classic battles as The Green Knight finally makes it to cinemas.

From writer/director David Lowery, who recently gave us The Old Man & the Gun and A Ghost Story, the movie is a fantasy-based re-telling of the medieval story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. The last that we heard of it was a trailer way back in February of last year.

Dev Patel stars as Sir Gawain – which you likely already know from our badly punny headline – but around him are the likes of Joel Edgerton, Alicia Vikander, Sarita Choudhury and Sean Harris.

The Green Knight is now slated for a late July US cinematic release, with an Australian date to be confirmed. Here’s the new trailer:
