A24’s THE GREEN KNIGHT Rated R for Violence, Graphic Nudity & More

A24, the studio behind The Witch, Hereditary, and Midsommar (and more) are dropping an intense horror-fantasy flick The Green Knight this May. And today we hear the movie has been rated R for violence, some sexuality, and graphic nudity.

An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men. Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.

In addition to Patel, The Green Knight stars Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sarita Choudhury, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Barry Keoghan and Ralph Ineson.
