20th Century Studios’ “The Last Duel,” a gripping tale of betrayal and vengeance set against the brutality of 14th century France directed by visionary filmmaker and four-time Academy Award® nominee Ridley Scott (“The Martian,” “Black Hawk Down,” “Gladiator,” “Thelma & Louise”), opens in theaters nationwide October 15, 2021. The trailer and teaser poster for the film are available now.

The historical epic is a cinematic and thought-provoking drama set in the midst of the Hundred Years War that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris is a Norman squire whose intelligence and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in court. When Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God’s hands.

Oscar® winner Matt Damon (“Good Will Hunting,” “Ford v Ferrari”) is Jean de Carrouges, two-time Academy Award® nominee Adam Driver (“Marriage Story,” “BlacKkKlansman”) is Jacques Le Gris, Emmy® winner Jodie Comer (“Killing Eve,” “Free Guy”) is Marguerite de Carrouges and two-time Oscar winner Ben Affleck (“Argo,” “Good Will Hunting”) is Count Pierre d’Alençon. The screenplay is by Oscar nominee Nicole Holofcener (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) & Ben Affleck & Matt Damon based on the book by Eric Jager. The film is produced by Ridley Scott, Kevin J. Walsh (“Manchester by the Sea”), Jennifer Fox (“Nightcrawler”), Nicole Holofcener, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck with Kevin Halloran (“Ford v Ferrari”), Drew Vinton (“Promised Land”), Madison Ainley (“Justice League”) serving as executive producers.

“The Last Duel” is based on Eric Jager’s book The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France, which brings the turbulent Middle Ages to life in striking detail. When etiquette, social aspirations and justice were driven by the codes of chivalry, the consequences for defying the institutions of the time – the Church, the nobility at court, a teenage king – could be severe. For a woman navigating these violent times, one who had no legal standing without the support of her husband, the stakes were even higher.

The Last Duel opens in U.S. theaters October 15, 2021.

    Trailer makes me think of Knights Tale with the most memorable and sadly departed Heath Ledger, at least when it comes to the act of dueling medieval style.

    I don't understand why they're saying the younger generations aren't interested in this movie I was born in 1996 and I loved this movie I was into it the entire way through! I believe most of the younger one around 20 are just too soft and live in a fairy land but not all younger ones are that way

    This movie is so good! As a fan of history, the way the three characters tells their own story of the event shows how difficult it is to decide what really occurred at the time in any history.

    Though if I could nitpick, two things could be better ✌

    1. There was no indication that Carrouges was an insensitive man to his wife.
    2. The half face helmet. This might have withdrawn the attention of many, and it's right there at the trailer. Could be pointed as to why the movie bombed, aside from not many heard this movie even exist.

    In a perfect world Jodie Comer would get all the attention, recognition, and praises she deserves for her subtle, nuanced, poignant, utterly brilliant and beautiful performance in 'The Last Duel'. It's a crime how much she's been overlooked this award season.

    I heard alot of bad things about this movie but to be honest after seeing it I only really had two problems with it (1) the final scene says the husband died in the crusades a few years later this implies that the wife lived happily ever after without him and kinda made me feel like they were trying to turn her into some kind of single mom feminist icon, when in reality they lived happily married together for a further ten years before he went off on crusade and got killed and if my history is correct they had two more children.
    (2) the wife seems to be the only intelligent person in the room. I know you're supposed to see through the protagonist eyes so you can relate in these kinds of movies but she felt really out of place like everyone else was medieval and she was a modern 21st century woman. Other than that the movie was quite good. It's the first movie I've ever seen where I actually feel for the plight of women in those times. The helplessness at basically being property and not seen as a person is jarring. The three points of view is great who ever thought that up is a genius I actually found myself empathizing with the rapist thinking Jesus this guy doesn't realize that he did something wrong he actually thinks she wanted him. The husband as well in his view he's a good man trying to better his family but being held back by richer smarter more cunning individuals but in his wife and friends eyes he's a brute suited only for the battlefield and nothing else he's more medieval Taliban than caring husband and friend if he'd only treat people better maybe he'd accomplish more of his goals but to be fair he was probably suffering from PTSD from all the wars he had to fight in constantly his entire life it's like well spring is here time to go kill the English what that summer is here well time to go kill the well who are we fighting nevermind doesn't matter let's go kill some people.

    I was hoping to be able to get a Director's Cut of this film but I get the feeling that won't happen since it didn't do well at the box office. This was such a good film.

    It’s so funny to see these weak Hollywood types try to play men of real combat, they think they just need a stern face haha. Real men can see the weakness in their eyes, it bleeds through their face.

    I don’t know how Alex Lawther seems to nail every role he’s done. Even the minor ones, his portrayal of King Charles VI was so entertaining, a great mix between comedic and impudent in terms of being a king.
