‘The Green Knight’: David Lowery’s Influences Included ’80s Fantasy Movies and Hammer Horror Films

A24 and director David Lowery‘s (A Ghost StoryThe Green Knight is finally being released in theaters on July 30, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly shares two new images today.

Additionally, EW ran an in-depth interview with Lowery, which we encourage you to read if you’re looking forward to this one. Among other things, Lowery touched upon the films that influenced his new movie, notably including Hammer Horror movies!

Lowery explains, “We were never going to make a strictly medieval history film. There is no historical accuracy to the film whatsoever. It is completely a fantasy. But in terms of visual references, we looked at everything from Andrei Rublevwhich is, I think, one of the greatest movies ever made, and which you could never make now. It would cost hundreds of millions of dollars, but that was a great visual touchstone for us. We looked at Willowthe Ron Howard film, which is one of my favorite fantasy films of all time. We looked at a lot of ’80s fantasy, to be honest, like Ladyhawke and Dragonslayer and Willow. Those were big ones for us.”

We looked at Hammer horror films, and then there was this Russian adaptation of War and Peace that had just been restored around the time we started prep,” Lowery continues. “And then Kenneth Branagh’s Henry Vwe looked at that one a lot. A lot of Shakespearean references, especially that one.”

Lowery also notes during the interview, “We wanted a film that felt as epic as Lord of the Rings but was completely unique in the way the story was told.

“From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table,” A24 explained The Green Knight last year.

“An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men. Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger.”

Alicia VikanderJoel EdgertonBarry Keoghan, and Ralph Ineson also star.

The Green Knight is rated “R” for “Violence, some sexuality and graphic nudity.”

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
