Netflix’s “Outlaw King” Gets New Poster Ahead of Launch

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.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
