The horror-tinged fantasy epic is preparing to cut into your psyche this summer.

Below is the latest poster for THE GREEN KNIGHT, coming to theaters July 30 from genre specialist A24. Acclaimed filmmaker David Lowery (A GHOST STORY) scripted and directed, and the cast is headed by Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sarita Choudhury, Sean Harris, Barry Keoghan and THE WITCH’s Kate Dickie and Ralph Ineson, the latter playing the fearsome title role. The synopsis: “An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, THE GREEN KNIGHT tells the story of Sir Gawain [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.”
