@The Movie Critic well visually sure it´s ok, the current standards are far superior to those of the times when Sean Connery played the Green Knight. But now we don´t have Sean Connerys and we don´t have good stories. I don´t see the promise of a good story in the trailer, Of course time will tell though.

I honestly think it looks beautiful than anything Hollywood has out rn tbh, but to each their own of course!

The casting of Dev Patel jars a little, despite him being a great actor.....
Daniel Buxton
Two things JVR, as you've got your knickers in a twist.... 1. I'm not saying that there wasn't a small admixture from the corners of the Roman Empire and Mediterranean trade itself introduced into Britain over time. There's evidence of that through archaeological finds. Although that evidence is NOT that vast numbers of settlers from the middle east arrived here, but rather that a few soldiers or their retinue did, and that goods were traded suggesting some possible immigration, on a small scale. It's been rebranded as something else for 21st century woke purposes. 2. The medieval writings do mention Saracens. But the story is set in Dark Ages Britain. The Saracens were hundreds of years hence. 3. It jars, because Sir Gawain is not described as being Indian. And the chances are very high that he didn't look classically Indian, Chinese or Chilean. It jars like the strawberry-blond Jesus used to on the mural in the church I went to as a boy. It jars like Alec Guinness as King Faisal in Lawrence of Arabia, or Liz Taylor as Cleopatra. Yes, Gawain is known through a mythical poem, but he is rooted in a historical time, when the ancient Britons invited then tussles with the new arrivals, the Germanic peoples who became known as the English. I know that isn't a fashionable theory anymore but it's broadly backed up genetically, geographically and linguistically. It doesn't mean I don't approve of Dev Patel - I do, he's a great actor. It just means that if your pitching something in the past, then perhaps historical accuracy jars less.

@Anoneemus Noename To all the people complaining about Patel as Gawain: It's based on a 14th century poem. By the 12th century we have court records of Saracen warriors settled in southwest England, and certainly in the 8th century there is numismatic evidence of contact between England and Moorish Spain. The filmmakers have made a reasonable extrapolation. And I hear you say "Boohoo but Arthurs fictional stories take place between the 4th and 6th century." Even better: the Roman Invasion at that time introduced a wide variety of ethnicities and skin complexions to the British Isles through the Roman Army. In fact Arthur might have been half-roman (if and that's a big IF he ever even existed and because Gawain is Arthurs nephew, well figure that one out for yourself), as far as scholars are concerned and we have a multitude of dark-skinned Knights in the court of Arthur in the Medieval Arthurian Stories: we have the 4 full Saracens - Sir Palomedes, his father and his two brothers, we have Sir Feirefiz who is half-Saracen and Sir Parcivals half-brother as well as Arthurs nephew. And we have Sir Morien, who is black and half-moorish. These are all established knights of the Round Table and some of their stories are a hundred years older than "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight". Arthur's court has never ever been only white. Check the stories. And you will cry "But Gawain is none of the above! And Saracens are not Indians!" Well, great that Patel is neither playing a Saracen nor an Indian knight. He is a British man and citizen, portraying an medieval knight with a skin complexion only slightly darker than the average Caucasian - a weathered look a knight could acquire from long journeys. And in case you forgot: it's based on a fictional 14th century fantasy romance poem full of dragons, witches and green men. And male bisexuality. I'd say quit whining.
Anoneemus Noename
@ivan cores "Colorblind casting", aka woke bullshit. Sir Gawain was a scotsman ffs and they got an indian guy playing him like race mixing wasn't frowned upon back then. No way Arthur would ever admit he was his nephew let alone have him seated at the round table. He'd probably have been sent away at birth, if not killed...
ivan cores

I agree. Why would they cast an indian actor for an Arturian tale?
André Rocha Torres
This movie looks very promising and I’m really looking forward to watch it. Nevertheless, and with all due respect for Patel, It’s hard to imagine him as Gawain. I don’t believe he is the best cast. I read all the books and I may say that I’m quite familiar to Sir Gawain. My statement isn’t only based on his looks but, mostly, on his bearing and representation of the famous Knight (from what I can tell from the trailer).
JVR

Okay, I'll take the bait, as a scholar of Arthurian Literature. Let's agree: skin color is not an issue here. I am open to talk about Patels portrayal of Gawain: how do come to the conclusion he's not performing the role adequately?

This trailer is masterpiece in of itself and the combination of medieval and modern elements is blended perfectly. Not sure what the complaints about Patel being Indian are about, it fiction and he’s British besides the majority of the other characters seem European so him being Indian makes him stand out, my only complaint is Patel is too handsome to be intimidating.

Dev Patel is a British man playing a British medieval knight.

@Max Johnson Funny thing. I am somewhat familiar with classic Polish literature. One of the most recognizable characters from Polish fiction is a character of colonel Michal Wolodyjowski who appears in Henryk Sienkiewicz's Trilogy written in late 19th century. He's not very tall or well built or too handsome and also doesn't make a very great first impression, but he is *the First Sword of the Commonwealth* an extremely honourable man who remains undefeated in duel and sacrifices himself defending his homeland against Ottoman Empire. Was Henryk Sienkiewicz an SJW?

@JVR It more about the notion that any European myths and fictional narratives are open to interpretation in way that non-European stories are not. Essentially, it's not progressive to hold anything western as sacred, but it's still socially encouraged to safe-guard the purity of other traditional cultures and their stories.

Imagine a film like this about the Irish myth of Cú Chulainn and Ferdiad

@sleep I've provided you numerous arguments and you keep reverting to stating that an English actor shouldn't play Gawain because his skin colour isn't the right skin colour. How else am I supposed to interpret that?

I have this strange feeling that Oscar Isaac was *this* close to getting casted as Gawain and tbh I'm not sure if he would've made the role better or worse

I think this the Zuko that could’ve/would’ve been if Avatar The Last AirBender would’ve been done correctly.

I love when they ethnically displace indigenous Europeans with foreigners. It reminds them that their ancestral homelands are being taken from them, right under their noses, without them firing a shot. If you let this happen you deserve every bit of it, and I watch on with glee.

@sleep You're talking in vague terms, which seems to be somewhat connected in your belief that European identity exists.

I've been saying, for years, that there needed to be a new version of this story, because Sean Connery's had become dated (though it is still enjoyable). This is a great story, and I hope more films are made to tell classic tales. "The Count of Monte Cristo," could use a retelling, too.
