Netflix’s Outlaw King is from Hell or High Water director David Mackenzie and focuses on the true story of Scotland’s outlaw king Robert The Bruce, briefly seen as a supporting character in Mel Gibson’s Braveheart before his legendary war against the English.
Chris Pine plays Robert with a convincing Scottish accent in the first teaser which is a little jarring considering how most American actors have such a tough time with UK accents.
The untold, true story of Robert The Bruce who transformed from defeated nobleman, to reluctant King, to outlaw hero over the course of an extraordinary year. Forced into battle in order to save his family, his people and his country from the oppressive English occupation of medieval Scotland, Robert seizes the Scottish crown and rallies a ragtag group of men to face off against the wrath of the world’s strongest army lead by the ferocious King Edward 1 and his volatile son, the Prince of Wales.
Outlaw King will be released in select theatres on November 9th, 2019.
