20th Century Studios has a first trailer for the period film Last duel released. Like many other films, director Ridley Scott’s project was due to hit theaters last year. After several postponements, the German theatrical release has now been announced for October 14th.
Last duel takes place in 1386 and is based on real facts. The film tells of the last legally permitted duel in France. At the center of the plot are Jean de Carrouges and his wife Marguerite, as well as Jacques Le Gris, a good friend of Jean. One day he raped Marguerite, whereupon she publicly accused him of the act. Jacques Le Gris, who is a respected knight at court, denies the allegations, however, whereupon Jean de Carrouges challenges him to a duel.
The main roles in Last duel play Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) as Marguerite de Carrouges, Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) as Jacques Le Gris and Matt Damon (The Martian) as Jean de Carrouges. Damon also wrote the script for the film together with Ben Affleck and Nicole Holofcener. Affleck then also took on a role and played Count Pierre d’Alençon.
