‘Outlaw King’ Trailer: Sneak Peek At Chris Pine In Toronto Fest Opener

While the other Hollywood Chrises failed to beat Thanos, Pine was dusting off his chain mail to play Robert the Bruce, an exiled Scottish king seeking to reclaim his throne.

The first trailer for a Perthshire filmmaker's Robert the Bruce epic has been released. I can't wait to see this one at TIFF next month, where it will have its world premiere as the opening night film on September 6th-so look for a review on Collider shortly thereafter.

Outlaw King is directed by David Mackenzie, who previously worked with Pine on the 2016 Oscar-nominated Western, Hell or High Water. The Outlaw King trailer is awash in grey colors and a miserable atmosphere, painting bleak portrait of Scotland under the occupation of the oppressive English King Edward I. The entire trailer is moody and almost dialogue-free and it isn't until one minute in that you understand why: Pine's Scottish accent is...not that great. The festival is the flawless launch pad for our realistic epic, and we are delighted to be the first Scottish film ever to open Toronto. Also starring Lady Macbeth's Florence Pugh and Marvel's Aaron Taylor-Johnson, this rugged telling of Scottish history is truly going to make us fall in love with Pine as a king. 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.

Unlike other Netflix original movies, Outlaw King will be shown in theaters in addition to its online streaming release.
