Disney hosted the US premiere of the upcoming 20th Century Studios film, “The Last Duel” this weekend at the Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater.
Stars from the film in attendance included Matt Damon, Jodie Comer, Harriet Walter, and Ben Affleck. They were joined by screenwriter/producer Nicole Holofcener (who co-wrote the film with Affleck and Damon), producers Kevin J. Walsh and Jennifer Fox, and executive producers Kevin Halloran, Drew Vinton, and Madison Ainley.
“The Last Duel” is a gripping tale of betrayal and vengeance set against the brutality of 14th century France. A cinematic and thought-provoking drama set in the midst of the Hundred Years War, the film explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice, and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals.
Here are some pictures from the premiere:
“The Last Duel” stars Oscar winner Matt Damon (“Good Will Hunting,” “Ford v Ferrari”), two-time Academy Award nominee Adam Driver (“Marriage Story,” “BlacKkKlansman”), Emmy winner Jodie Comer (“Killing Eve,” “Free Guy”), two-time Oscar winner Ben Affleck (“Argo,” “Good Will Hunting”) and Harriet Walter (“Atonement,” “Sense and Sensibility”).
Directed by four-time Academy Award nominee Ridley Scott (“The Martian,” “Black Hawk Down,” “Gladiator,” “Thelma & Louise”) with a screenplay by Oscar nominee Nicole Holofcener (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) & Ben Affleck & Matt Damon based on the book by Eric Jager.
The historical action thriller, directed by Ridley Scott, opens exclusively in cinemas on Friday 15th October 2021. We can expect to see the film on Disney+ internationally by the end of the year, while in the US, after the theatrical release, the film will have to go HBO Max before being added to Hulu.
