Netflix has just dropped the trailer for its latest movie, The King.

And if you’re into epic historical adventures, and Timothee Chalamet speaking with a British accent, then you’re in for a treat.

The film is based on the Henry IV and Henry V plays by William Shakespeare, and is directed and produced by David Michod.

Alongside Timothee, Joel Edgerton, Robert Pattison, and Ben Mendelsohn also star in the upcoming Netflix original.

Plot-wise, the film concerns a young prince named Hal (Timothee), a prince who is heir to the English throne but has turned his back on royal life.

However, after his father, King Henry IV (Ben), dies, he is quickly crowned King Henry V and has to navigate his life through palace politics and the war that his late father left behind.

Along the way, he has to cope with the emotional hardships of his past life, including a friendship with the alcoholic knight John Falstaff (Joel).

And the trailer has a lot going on.

First off, we see a beheading, and then Henry V questions the loyalty of his counsel of men he has been ‘forced to rely on’, and it looks as if the film has plenty of battle scenes.

Oh, and Robert Pattison sports long hair in this film, as he plays the role of The Dauphin – the eighth of twelve children to King Charles VI of France.
