Be warned: Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have a funny hair style in the trailer for The Last Duel . But nothing to do with any buffoonery reminiscent of their Dogma duo . Ridley Scott’s new film isn’t all about the two of them – the cronies are co-writing the film, however, with Nicole Holofcener, director of All About Albert and screenwriter of The Manhattan Counterfeiters..
This is the story of Marguerite (Jodie Comer), in the Kingdom of France in the year of grace 1386, who accuses a man (Adam Driver) of having raped her, and the case will be resolved via the judgment of God: in other words, a good fight with weapons and armor between the accused and the victim’s husband (Matt Damon). And this epic trailer promises that The Last Duel contains some of Sir Ridley’s obsessions: portraying killer men, endlessly questioned story-show, affirmed and abused feminism … “The truth doesn’t matter. Alone. the power of men counts “ .
And Bam ! The Last Duel will be in French theaters on October 13, and possibly at the Venice Film Festival in early September, unless Ridley doesHouse of Gucci ? Because despite his testamentary title which refers to Scott’s first feature, Les Duellistes , the filmmaker has not yet retired. Because afterwards, he will have to tackle Gladiator 2 .
