At Long Last, The First Trailer For Terry Gilliam's THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE
Terry Gilliam's long-awaited The Man Who Killed Don Quixote actually exists! The first international trailer has been released to prove it and it looks wonderful. After all of these years, and all the problems this production has faced, Gilliam has finally made his passion project. The film stars Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) in the role of Toby and Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean) in the role of Don Quixote. As a fan of Gillam's film work, I couldn't be more excited about this!
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century. Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes consumed by the illusory world and unable to determine his dreams from reality. The tale culminates in a phantasmagorical and emotional finale where Toby takes on the mantle of Don Quixote de la Mancha.
The movie also stars Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Good Will Hunting), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Oblivion), Joana Ribeiro (Portugal Não Está à Venda, A Uma Hora Incerta), Óscar Jaenada (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), Jordi Mollà (Criminal, In the Heart of the Sea), Sergi Lopez (Pan’s Labyrinth) and Rossy de Palma (Julieta, The Flower of my Secret).
Amazon Studios acquired the distribution rights for the film and I imagine it will be released sometime this year. But, there's no official release date yet. Watch the trailer for yourself and tell us what you think!
