Netflix is seeking awards this season – and here’s the trailer for one of its hopefuls, The King.

Whilst most of the Netflix press surrounding its push for awards has been centred on Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, it has several other contenders jockeying for gongage.

One of them is The King, from director David Michod. He’s penned the script for this one too along with Joel Edgerton, and its basis is William Shakespeare’s trio of plays that have Henry in their title.

Timothee Chalamet takes the lead, in a cast that also includes Edgerton, Sean Harris, Tom Glynn-Carney, Lily-Rose Depp, Ben Mendelsohn and Robert Pattinson. And the new trailer for the movie is right here…

The King lands on Netflix from November 1st. And we’ll leave you with its official synopsis…

Are you ready for what awaits? Watch The King in select theaters and on Netflix. Hal (Timothée Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the aging alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton). Directed by David Michôd and co-written by Michôd and Edgerton, THE KING co-stars Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Pattinson, and Lily-Rose Depp.
