Here's the YouTube link to the soundtrack:

There was a recent interview (sorry lost the link) with HGW in which he tells how he started scoring the film with only half of it shot. Apparently Scott wanted him to start working on it during the lockdown, so HGW would watch it for a while and then some text would come up saying "Carrouges goes to Scotland" (or whatever else) wherever the missing scenes were.  :laugh:

Just came back from the screening.
Lots to talk about !

Will wait until it has been out for a while to discuss more in depth here.

Very different from the other Ridley periode films. I could see some parallels between Thelma and Louise in the portrayal of men and females actually, but without the comedy ofc.

The end felt heavy and emotionally, it hit me in a way i didnt expect.

Be sure to pay close attention to the helmets.  I hear they're really cool.

I wasn't expecting to see Hickey from The Terror in this, looks like Scott has him typecast as a little weasel.

Really good movie on the whole, though, and a big step up from Scott's last two historical epics.

I'd actually thought they'd cut the part of Adam Louvel, don't recall seeing him in the trailers? Also good to see I guessed correctly about Marton Csokas role.

"Jean de Carrouges aka Matt Damon. For nearly two years ago, I spent a couple of extremely hectic weeks visualising the hair and makeup designs of the main characters of the film "The Last Duel".



The costumes used in the film are on display at Cinemark Playa Vista, CA:

It's not a huge part, and he naturally has the most screen time in Le Gris' segment.

The best review I've seen so far. Gonna watch movie tomorrow 8)



Merlin most likely.

Yeah.

Quote
Michael Matthews is set to direct Disney’s Merlin, an adaptation of T.A. Barron’s novel series where King Arthur’s wizardry mentor is at the center of the story. Ridley Scott, who directed the 20th Century Medieval pic The Last Duel,  which bows today in theaters, was attached to direct at one point but parted ways due to his busy schedule. Sources say the film is still in early development with Disney’s live-action team.

Seen it yesterday. A really good movie, the duel is fantastic. So the cinematography, i have to see it again but in english because in my opinion the dubbing ruin a bit the interpretations.
He is very close to the book, i am glad of it. Battle scenes are very short, i hoped longer but it's the final duel that steal the scene.

Just came back from cinema. If you want to be entertained or looking to watch blockbuster then do not watch The Last Duel. It's almost like this movie doesn't want you to like it. Almost every character, except Marguerite, is piece of shit. If you're looking for epic stuff then you will be disappointed again. It's ani-Gladiator, anti-Kingdom of Heaven. It's small in scale dark medieval drama. I enjoyed it but it's definitely not for everyone, especially young adults, spoiled by comic flicks. Very anti-Holyywod film.

8/10

Gonna watch it again in few months.
