'Outlaw King': Netflix releases first trailer of upcoming film starring Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce
The movie tells the untold, true story of Robert the Bruce who transforms from a defeated nobleman into an outlaw hero during Edward I's occupation of medieval Scotland
Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming movie 'Outlaw King' starring Chris Pine in the role of historic outlaw and king of Scotland Robert the Bruce. Coming from the director of 'Hell or High Water', the movie is to follow the struggle to regain Scotland's independence.
The movie is set to tell the untold, true story of Robert the Bruce who transforms from a defeated nobleman into an outlaw hero during the oppressive occupation of medieval Scotland by Edward I of England. Despite grave consequences, Robert seizes the Scottish crown and rallies an impassioned group of men to fight back against the mighty army of the tyrannical King and his volatile son, the Prince of Wales.
In the trailer, amid beheadings on a battlefield, Robert says, “I’m done with running, and I’m sick of hiding... You can fight for God, for country, for family. I do not care, so long as you fight!”
Filmed in Scotland, the movie reunites director David Mackenzie ('Hell or High Water') with star Chris Pine alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Florence Pugh, and Billy Howle. It will also star Tony Curran, Stephen Dillane, James Cosmo and Sam Spruell. The movie premieres in select theaters and on the streaming platform on November 9.
'Outlaw King' will also debut as the Opening Night Film at the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday, September 6.
