    I had no idea about this film, must have passed me by but it does look amazing, and with a great cast as well (Jodie Comer, Adam Driver, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck)

    Now that looks like a good reason to go out and get to the movies.

    Having read the history behind this story I can definitely see it p*ssing off a certain segment of society... :righton:

    Really looking forward to this. Nobody does the historical epic quite like Sir Ridley Scott.

    I'm going to have to keep an eye out for this one, I had previously seen the trailer on youtube but I didn't catch that it was a Ridley Scott film. Though I still haven't watched his last film All the Money in the World even though I have had it on Blu-ray for some time now.

    I think Ridley should have the winner of the duel fight a duel with Keith Carradine in his next episode.

    Thanks for mentioning that. I try to watch everything done by Scott, but All the Money fell off my radar. I was able to stream it on Prime--it's fantastic. Plummer is just exceptional at playing a wealthy SOB, but all the characters were well cast.

    Hopefully the last movie title with ‘The Last…’ in it.

    on topic: since Scott’s last movies bored me to tears, I’m gonna wait for the reviews before spending money on this.

    I thought so too, much to my surprise, since it had been quite a while that I liked a Ridley Scott movie.

    The Last Duel appears to have the same central idea as his debut film The Duellists (1977), which is one of my favorite Ridley Scott movies (together with Alien and Blade Runner). However, and it could be the trailer, but the tone of The last Duel feels a bit labored, a feeling that was completely absent in All The Money In The World.

    And while I'm not a Damon/Affleck hater, their appearance does feel a bit odd in a medieval setting.

    Thought it was Joan Of Arc at first.
    The Last Duel?
    Don’t see it topping Kingdom Of Heaven.
  14. Yes, though I always connect 'duel' with weapons using gunpowder. Now 'trial by combat' I understand.

    Confused. Looks like they spent a bunch of money, but it doesn't appear to have any Marvel characters in it?

    On a serious note, looks great. Big Ridley fan.

    I would absolutely love to see Ridley Scott do a western, I bet it would be one of the best ever made!

    While doing press duties for The Last Duel at the Venice Film Festival Sir Ridley said that he's interested in tackling a genre that he's not tried yet, so he's looking into making a musical or western next.

    Saw a tremendously negative review from the Guardian, but like lots of their reviews, there's no real sense that it's a film. The way it's discussed, it could be a play or book. Maybe the reviewer simply doesn't have the vocabulary to review it as a film.
