Shot by Barry Ackroyd, frequent Paul Greengrass cinematographer as well as the DP behind The Hurt Locker, the first trailer sells an epic rendering of Robert the Bruce's story in medieval Scotland, which clocks in at the hefty budget of $120 million.

The film is co-written and directed by David Mackenzie, who worked previously with Pine on the Academy Award nominated Hell or High Water. In Outlaw King, Pine plays a disgraced nobleman-turned-hero whose battle style is just as ruthless as his kilt game (he sports casual kilts, war kilts, training kilts, and more in the trailer). 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 will also play in select theaters across the country once it releases on the streaming site on November 9.

The film tells a "David v. Goliath story" of how the great 14th Century Scottish "Outlaw King'" Robert The Bruce used cunning and bravery to defeat and repel the much larger and better equipped occupying English army. 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. The screenplay for Outlaw King was written by Bash Doran, James MacInnes, and David Mackenzie, with additional writing by Mark Bomback and David Harrower. Let us know in the comment section below!
