He might be preparing to play the new Caped Crusader in The Batman but Robert Pattinson still found time to play a confident Dauphin who taunts Dune star Timothee Chalamet in the final trailer for The King.
The trailer opens with Chalamet's King Henry preparing to face Pattinson's Prince Louis in battle. Yet Henry longs for the time when he was just a prince without a care in the world. His cautiousness may have been caused by his sister Philippa telling him to be wary of the men around him.
While Henry struggles to find a man he could trust, the Dauphin is making aggressive moves towards England. "The screams of your men shall lull me to sleep at night," Louis tells Henry, who isn't amused by the taunting. "You will not topple this King Henry V of England that you so underestimate," he fires back. We already know what will happen but we're still looking forward to Chalamet and Pattinson's performances in the film.
The King boasts of an impressive cast led by Chalamet and Pattinson. It also features Star Wars actors Joel Edgerton and Ben Mendelsohn as well as Sean Harris of the Mission: Impossible movies. Although he doesn't appear in the trailer, former Game of Thrones star Dean-Charles Chapman has been confirmed to play Henry's brother Thomas.
The synopsis for The King reads as follows:
"Hal (Timothée Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the aging alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton)."
The King will premiere on Netflix on November 1.
