After a lukewarm reception at its premiere at TIFF in mid-September, David Mackenzie cut nearly twenty minutes from his ambitious epic drama centered around Scottish King Robert the Bruce. He claims it has a new vibe, which viewers will get to experience when it hits Netflix in early November.
For now, interested parties get to witness a new trailer and poster for the Chris Pine starrer, which tells of Robert the Bruce’s transformation from defeated nobleman to outlaw hero. When Robert seizes the crown, he is successfully able to rally a group of men to fight back against the army of the tyrannical King and his son, the Prince of Wales.
Though the film struggled to get much momentum during its limited festival circuit, fans of Mackenzie’s Hell or High Water appear to be eager to see what the respected director can do with such a large project.
Co-starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Florence Pugh, Billy Howie, and Sam Spruell, the newly edited (and supposedly much better) Outlaw King will launch on Netflix on November 9.
