The Green Knight roleplaying game

When exactly will audiences have the chance to see The Green Knight, director David Lowery‘s (Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story) cinematic reimagining of the Arthurian legend? The movie was removed from the release calendar at the end of April, and a week later, Lowery himself was saying that “no one knows” when it will see the light of day. But a press release from distributor A24 promoting a new The Green Knight roleplaying game (we’ll get to that in a second) seems to hint that the indie distributor is still holding out hope for a theatrical release. Get the details on that and the new game below. Read More »

green knight release

Up until last week, A24’s new David Lowery film The Green Knight was still on the schedule to hit theaters on May 29. That seemed very unlikely, what with the majority of movie theaters still closed, and sure enough, The Green Knight‘s release date is now being listed as TBA. So what now? Does A24 wait for the all-clear to drop The Green Knight into theaters? Or will they give us the fantasy epic on VOD? According to Lowery, “no one knows” the answer at the moment.

David Lowery takes on part of the Arthurian legend with The Green Knight, a medieval fantasy film coming from A24. Dev Patel is Sir Gawain, “King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic green-skinned stranger.” Since this is a David Lowery film, you can bet it’s not going to be your typical fantasy epic. And that’s exciting. Check out The Green Knight trailer below.

Here’s a story that sounds like a grab-bag of random words all thrust together: Cary Fukunaga, the filmmaker behind Netflix’s Maniac, and David Lowery, the director of A Ghost Story and Pete’s Dragon, are teaming-up to turn the 1985 Joe Dante film Explores into a TV series. The original film featured Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix in their youths, playing kids who blast off into outer space and encounter some rubbery looking aliens. Fukunaga and Lowery plan to write the script for the Explorers TV series together.

the old man and the gun director interview

Writer-director David Lowery may have sent Robert Redford out with the bang the actor deserves with The Old Man & the Gun. No small feat on Lowery’s part. The filmmaker behind A Ghost Story and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints tells a playful but melancholic crime tale with the sweeping sense of adventure you want from watching Redford rob banks with his iconic charm.

Redford disappears into the role of happy-go-lucky criminal Forrest Tucker, but whether the character is making a getaway from the fuzz or enjoying a night at the movies with Jewel (Sissy Spacek), his power as both an actor and star is palpable in every scene. The Old Man & The Gun is a larger-than-life story made grander and all the more majestic by the mere presence of its lead.

Lowery recently told us about wanting Redford’s star power in all its glory, using a clip from a classic movie of the actor’s, having Tom Waits tell a Christmas story in the film, and more.

Note: This interview does contain spoilers.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Honest Trailer

David Lowery makes movies that feel very hand-crafted and personal. Even when he made the leap into big-budget territory with Pete’s Dragon, he didn’t make what felt like a big studio movie, he made a David Lowery film. The Disney remake wasn’t $150 million summer movie, but Lowery doesn’t appear opposed to directing one of those, especially if it’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Below, the director behind A Ghost Story discusses Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and more.
