A set of promo materials consisting of four character posters from the film The Last Duel recently launched by 20th Century Studios. This film is an epic set in medieval times directed by Ridley Scott and will be available exclusively in American theaters on October 15th. Previously, this historical drama film had received fairly positive reviews since its screening at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month.
The Last Duel starring Jodie Comer, Adam Driver, Matt Damonand Ben Affleck with support from Harriet Walter, Nathaniel Parker, Sam Hazeldine, Michael McElhatton, Alex Lawther, Marton Csokas, eljko Ivanek, Clive Russell, Adam Nagaitis, and Bosco Hogan.
Matt Damon stars as Jean de Carrouges, Adam Driver as Jacques Le Gris, with Ben Affleck as Count Pierre d’Alençon. Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, Free Guy) plays Marguerite de Carrouges. Ridley Scott himself has proven himself to be more than capable of leading historical dramas on a large scale, especially after winning Best Pictures for Gladiator, while the veteran filmmaker has directed Kingdom of Heaven, Robin Hood, and Exodus: Gods and Kings.
The Last Duel set in the middle of the Hundred Years War. Based on true events, the film uncovers long-held assumptions about the sanctioned final duel in France between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends who become rivals. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris, meanwhile, is Norman’s bodyguard whose wit and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in the palace. When Carrouges’ wife is brutally attacked by Le Gris, she refuses to remain silent. After he steps forward to confront his suspected assailant, a duel exhausting to the death is set to determine their fate.
The screenplay for the film, written by Nicole Holofcener (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), is based on the novel by Eric Jager entitled “The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France.” Ridley Scott also produces The Last Duel along with Kevin J. Walsh, Jennifer Fox, Nicole Holofcener, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Kevin Halloran, Drew Vinton, Madison Ainley serve as executive producers.
