Netflix has released the first official trailer for its adaptation of Shakespeare’s King Henry V featuring Timothée Chalamet as the titular king. The cast also includes Robert Pattinson, Joel Edgerton and Lily-Rose Depp.


Netflix’s upcoming historical drama follows a young prince reluctant to take the throne after his father’s death. The film is directed by David Michod (Animal Kingdom), who penned the screenplay together with Joel Edgerton, the latter also starring as an ageing alcoholic knight, Sir John Falstaff.


The trailer provides the first glimpse at Chalamet in the famous bowl cut portraying the young Hal, who is struggling to take over his father’s responsibilities. In the trailer he declares: “Already I can feel the weight of this crown I wear. I’ve been forced to rely upon the counsel of men whose loyalty I question every waking moment”.


The 23-year-old actor rose to fame after a series of leading roles in such films as: Call Me by Your Name, Beautiful Boy, and Lady Bird. Fans will also see him on the big screen later this year in Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Little Women.


The King is set to premiere at Venice Film Festival 2019, starting on August 28 and ending on September 7. Following its debut, the film will also be screened in selected cinemas this Autumn, becoming a serious Oscar contender. The date of its Netflix release has not yet been revealed.
