All hail Timothée Chalamet King Henry!
Attention, Timothee Chalamet fans: The drought is over.
Chalamet, our gorgeous, tousled-hair heartthrob is set to make his return to the big screen later this year and now, we finally - and I say finally because fans have been waiting for the first real look at the Netflix film for months now.
As the initial poster promised, Chalamet is serving more than just his role as King Henry V - he's serving bowl cut, he's serving pinky rings, he's serving cheekbone some serious cheekbones.
The teaser trailer does not disappoint either. It shows Chalamet as Hal, the wayward prince whose ascent to the throne following his father's tragic death (*not a spoiler) is met with tension. Along the way, as he adjusts to life as King (and the fur, the jewels, the followers, the responsibilities, and the corruption), he finds companionship in Lily-Rose Depp's Catherine and in his best friend, an alcoholic knight John Falstaff, played by Joel Edgerton, who also co-wrote the film with director David Michôd. Too, we get glimpses of the film's other stars: Robert Pattinson, Sean Harris, and Ben Mendelsohn.
Described as “Game of Thrones meets Shakespeare" by Edgerton, the film is an adaption of Shakespeare's "Henry IV, Part 1,” “Henry IV, Part 2," and “Henry V.”
Watch the trailer below, and just know that the accents are good, the hair is incredible, and most importantly, Chalamet is back:
The King will come to Netflix sometime this Autumn.
