A fantasy re-telling of the medieval story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

I don't know about the casting but visually it looks nice.

This is the third time the story has been adapted.  Based on a poem that originates in the Middle Ages.  What I like is it's a King Arthur story but it's not about King Arthur.

Haven't seen this but it's very different to the remake.  More of an atmospheric/mood piece than an action movie.

I've already discussed this at length.  This will always be my favourite version of the tale.

Looks pretty good, looking forward to this one.
