This Friday sees the release of Netflix’s new action-packed epic, Outlaw King.
Directed by David Mackenzie (Starred Up, Hell or High Water), it tells the untold, true story of Robert the Bruce, who transforms from defeated nobleman to outlaw hero during the oppressive occupation of medieval Scotland by Edward I of England. Despite grave consequences, Robert seizes the Scottish crown and rallies an impassioned group of men to fight back against the mighty army of the tyrannical King and his volatile son, the Prince of Wales.
Filmed in Scotland, the historical picture reunites Mackenzie with star Chris Pine, who plays Robert, alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Florence Pugh and Billy Howle.
“Violent, brutal and thrilling, Netflix’s Robert the Bruce biopic is a historical epic with heft – and a cracking lead turn from Chris Pine,” we wrote in our review of the film. “This sprawling epic feels lean, mean and up for it.”
The film has been given an 18 certificate by the BBFC and, following its premiere at the London Film Festival, will be released on Friday 9th November, not only on Netflix but also in cinemas across the UK. Netflix will once again be partnering with Curzon to distribute the movie, which will screen at the company’s cinemas in Bloomsbury, Victoria, Canterbury, Knutsford, Sheffield, Soho, Wimbledon, Aldgate, Oxford and Colchester (get tickets here).
While the film will not be released in cinemas before its Netflix release – a la The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, which is available in UK cinemas this weekend before its Netflix debut on Friday 16th November – it will be available for the first time in non-Curzon cinemas. Fittingly for a Scottish story, both Glasgow Film Theatre and Edinburgh Filmhouse will be screening the epic from Friday. You can get tickets for Filmhouse here, or the Glasgow Film Theatre here. Can’t get to any of those venues? You can see the film worldwide from Friday on Netflix.
Here’s a trailer for the film:
Outlaw King is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
