Netflix just released the first official teaser trailer for The King and, after almost a year of waiting, we finally understand Timothée Chalamet's bowl cut.
Directed by David Michôd, the adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV Part I, Henry IV Part II and Henry V follows Hal (Chalamet), the "wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne," as he abruptly assumes the role of King Henry V after the death of his tyrannical father. Joel Edgerton (who also co-wrote with Michôd) co-stars as Hal's close friend, mentor and aging alcoholic knight, John Falstaff; Robert Pattinson, Lily-Rose Depp, Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn also appear.
In the trailer, Chalamet puts on his best English accent as he divulges his trust issues to Edgerton, beheads a man, wears a fur stole and stares broodingly. It looks, in a word, intense.
The release date for The King is still yet to be announced, but it's expected to be available for streaming on Netflix sometime this fall.
