We've got a brand new trailer for you to watch for director Terry Gilliam's long-awaited film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. It's been a long road for the filmmaker to get the movie made, but he did it! He actually completed his passion project and it looks like a fantastic film! The new trailer offers us a good amount of new footage and additional insight into the story. It looks like it's going to be a fun film filled with all of the wonderful things that I enjoy about the films Gilliam makes.
The movie stars Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) in the role of Toby and Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean) in the role of Don Quixote and this is the synopsis:
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century. Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes consumed by the illusory world and unable to determine his dreams from reality. The tale culminates in a phantasmagorical and emotional finale where Toby takes on the mantle of Don Quixote de la Mancha.
The movie also stars Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Good Will Hunting), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion), Joana Ribeiro (Portugal Não Está à Venda, A Uma Hora Incerta), Óscar Jaenada (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Jordi Mollà (Criminal, In the Heart of the Sea), Sergi Lopez (Pan’s Labyrinth) and Rossy de Palma (Julieta, The Flower of my Secret).
Amazon Studios acquired the distribution rights for the film and I imagine it will be released sometime this year. But, there's no official release date yet, but it still might premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
