Medieval: Michael Caine and Ben Foster fight in an (almost) epic trailer


Michael Caine and Ben Foster play mythical figures of the European Middle Ages in the Czech film Medieval.

The Middle Ages inspire : it is the time when it is possible to paint all the battles and all the myths that one would like to see realized in the cinema. At the risk of blindly slapping on a national novel with the pretext of entertainment, there is in medieval films all the imagery of war and chivalry dear to the hearts of many. Between history and fantasy, there is only one step, especially when the epic dimension prevails over everything.

The heroic legends of the Middle Ages are the pride of European countries and many of them are not widespread anywhere but in their native lands. Here is one that is Czech: the fight of the hero Zizka, an outstanding tactician, against a rival king. If you don't know her, she is the subject of the film Medieval (yes that's the title) carried by a rather attractive cast. A first trailer shows us a lot about the feature film.

Enter an exhausted Braveheart and a sub-Ridley Scott, Medieval still seems to have some means for its ambitions. Nothing seems particularly inspired and the hero, played by Ben Foster, looks more like Béric Dondarrion from Game of Thrones than anyone else, but we can hope for an entertaining B series.

Besides, Michael Caine's charisma as a warlord and some nice backgrounds make us want to take a look. Not unimportant details: this is a non-Hollywood film and the third by Czech director Petr Jákl.

The film does not yet have a release date in Franceand it is not certain that it will be released in our theaters.
