Before the film’s release, we break down everything we know about it.
What Is The Best Way To Watch The Green Knight?
On July 30, The Green Knight will be released in theaters.
The film was supposed to premiere at South By Southwest in March 2020, but the festival was canceled, as was the eventual release date of May 29, 2020.
This was because of the COVID-19 epidemic, which forced numerous movie releases to be postponed.
Director David Lowery told Vanity Fair that the film “wasn’t ready” by the time of the festival, and that he used lockdown to re-edit it.
“I just gave myself permission to go back inside the movie, unlock it, and completely rewrite it,” he added.
“I found the love I needed to cut it with love instead of disappointment and anger in my heart. It’s different, and it’s a lot better.”
The film will not be accessible to see online at the same time that it is released in theaters, but it will be available in theaters.
