Netflix has recently dropped the trailer for its highly-anticipated medieval war film, The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die, and fans of the original series can’t wait to see what’s in store. Set in the same universe as The Last Kingdom, the film is a spinoff that continues the story of Uhtred of Bebbanburg, played by Alexander Dreymon, as he embarks on a new adventure across a divided kingdom.
The plot of the film revolves around the death of King Edward, which triggers a fierce power struggle between rival heirs and invading forces. In the midst of this chaos, an alliance seeks Uhtred’s help in their plans, forcing him to make a difficult choice between loyalty to his loved ones and his dream of a united England. As the battle for the crown rages on, Uhtred must fight alongside old friends and new allies against dangerous enemies.
Based on Bernard Cornwell’s best-selling book series, The Saxon Stories, The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die promises to deliver the same level of intense action and drama that fans have come to love. The trailer features breathtaking battle sequences, stunning landscapes, and an all-star cast that includes Mark Rowley as Finan, Arnas Fedaravicius as Sihtric, Rod Hallet as Constantin, Harry Gilby, Ross Anderson, Ingrid García-Jonsson, James Northcote, and Cavan Clerkin.
Directed by Edward Bazalgette, who has worked on popular TV shows like Poldark, Class, Doctor Who, Versailles, The Witcher, and The Last Kingdom, this film is set to be a cinematic masterpiece that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
