‘The Last Duel’ Trailer Has Matt Damon, Ben Affleck And Searing Medieval Drama

The movie, which also stars Adam Driver and is due out Oct. 15, is based on a real-life case that took place in 14th-century France.

“Good Will Hunting” duo Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are gearing up for their first joint return to the big screen in 24 years.

20th Century Studios on Tuesday unveiled the trailer for “The Last Duel,” which hits theaters this fall. Directed by Ridley Scott, the period drama is based on the last officially recognized judicial duel fought in France, circa 1386. It follows knight Jean de Carrouges (played by Damon), who accuses his friend and squire, Jacques LeGris (Adam Driver), of raping his wife, Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer).

To settle the dispute, King Charles VI (Affleck) orders the two men to a duel, with the one left alive being declared the winner as a sign of God’s will.

The film, due out Oct. 15, is based on Eric Jager’s 2004 book, “The Last Duel: A True Story of Trial by Combat in Medieval France.” Damon and Affleck co-wrote the screenplay ― their first such collaboration since 1997’s “Good Will Hunting,” which won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay ― in collaboration with Nicole Holofcener.

I would watch if Ben and Matt take turns ugly fucking Adam driver and giving his fug mug multiple facials. otherwise, hard pass.

Judging from the trailer I feel like Jodie Comer is going to be wasted in this.

Sounds like the 1977 Ridley Scott movie called "The Duellists", which starred Keith Carradine, Harvey Keitel, and Albert Finney. That movie was beautiful and exciting.

The new film sounds like shit.

"The Duellists" was Ridley's first feature film.

Maybe he thinks this one will be his last.

Affleck and Damon cannot play anything other than modern Americans from the Boston area. Anything else is beyond their range, certainly any period work.

This movie might have been interesting had they cast relative unknowns. I am supposed to suspend disbelief with Ben and Matt and Driver in these roles? The trailer is laughable.

It's impossible to see any of these 'A-List' actors as anything but themselves. So naturally period costumes and wigs make it all resemble an overlong SNL skit.

Wrong actors, right period.

I’ll see it for Jodie Comer who I love.

It looks so heavy-handed, the leads are ugly( Adam Driver really? Uglied- Up Damon Really? Why would I blow $20 on that hatchet face?.) No wonder Damin's girl laugh at his movie.

Matt Damon sounded surprisingly convincing in the 3 seconds they showed of his performance. So did Jodie Comer. Not so sure about Driver though. Seemed a bit campy. The music and dark mood were very well done. Loved the snow. This looks really depressing. I guess it might make us say: "Well at least we don't live in Medieval times. Things could be worse."

Matt is turning into Matt Gaetz in OP's pic. Ew.

Jesus even reading about this film almost put me to sleep. Damon and Affleck are not young anymore and their best days are behind them. Driver can deal with one flop since he’s on a roll lately.

by Anonymousreply 14Last Wednesday at 9:40 AM

Adam driver has to be one of the most accomplished actors of his generation in terms of who he’s worked with as directors. He’s got a who’s who of directors under his belt: Spielberg, Scott, Eastwood, Scorsese, baumbach, spike lee. I can’t think of many actors who have worked with so many prominent directors in such a short space of time.

Damon and Affleck are both reprehensible.

by Anonymousreply 16Last Wednesday at 9:51 AM

The whitewashing of 14th Century France and lack of diversity is appalling!

by Anonymousreply 17Last Wednesday at 9:55 AM

Are Matt and Ben still fucking?
