The latest swashbuckling sword epic from Ridley Scott pits Oscar winner Matt Damon against Kylo Ren himself, Adam Driver. The Last Duel is a historical drama based on the deteriorating friendship between knight Jean de Carrouges (Damon) and his squire Jacques Le Gris (Driver).
When de Carrouges wife, Marguerite de Thibouville (Jodie Comer), claims she was raped by Le Gris, de Carrouges challenges his former best friend to a duel to the death. Based on Eric Jager’s book The Last Duel: A True Story of Trial by Combat in Medieval France, the film looks at the events surrounding the duel, which would be the last in France’s history, and its implications – if de Carrouges were to lose, his wife would be burned at the stake for lying.
The trailer looks fantastic and features plenty of men in suits of armor attacking each other with swords. There are also some questionable haircuts, with Damon sporting a mullet and co-star Ben Affleck as Count Pierre d’Alençon, who’s rocking a bleached blonde hair and goatee combo.
The Last Duel sees Damon and Affleck reunite for their first screenplay since Good Will Hunting (with help from Nicole Holofcener) and also stars Harriet Walter as Nicole de Buchard, Nathaniel Parker as Sir Robert de Thibouville, Sam Hazeldine as Thomin du Bois, Michael McElhatton as Bernard Latour, and Alex Lawther as King Charles VI.
The Last Duel is set for release on October 15.
