The Epic First Four Minutes Of The Last Duel Will Will Have You On The Edge Of Your Seat

Fans of period pieces, later middle age history, director Ridley Scott, and/or mega stars Jodie Comer (“Killing Eve”), Adam Driver (“Star Wars”), and Cambridge, MA-goes-to-Hollywood buds Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were no doubt thrilled when 20th Century Studios dropped its first trailer for “The Last Duel.” Today, the team behind the anticipated historical narrative — which is based on actual events — gave those fans yet another reason to celebrate and salivate, when Movie Clips Coming Soon shared the first four minutes of the film on its YouTube channel. 

The film revolves around Comer’s character, Marguerite de Carrouges, a woman believed by no one when she accuses her husband’s best friend and squire, Jacques LeGris (Driver), of rape. Marguerite’s husband, Jean de Carrouges (Damon), is then pitted against his squire in a fight to the death — one that will either restore his wife’s honor, or result in both his own death and that of his wife, who’ll be executed as a “false accuser.” The film was adapted from writer and historian Eric Jager’s “The Last Duel: A True Story of Trial by Combat in Medieval France” and is slated to hit theaters in just ten days. If the film’s first four minutes are an accurate representation of what it has in store for viewers, “The Last Duel” promises to be chock full of the suspense, tension-filled action, and character depth for which Ridley Scott is well-known.
