“Master of the sword, maestro of the bow.” Searchlight Pics has unveiled a new promo spot for Chevalier, which is now set to open in theaters on April 21st next month. They’re calling this a new trailer, though it’s more of a 30-second TV spot – still looks damn good. It premiered at the 2022 Toronto Film Festival last year to rave reviews. Starring Kelvin Harrison Jr. in a “tour de force performance” as real life composer Joseph Bologne, “Chevalier” de Saint-Georges. The son of an African slave and a French plantation owner, Bologne rises to great heights in French society as a celebrated violinist-composer and fencer, complete with an ill-fated love affair and a falling out with Marie Antoinette and her court. It also stars Lucy Boynton as Antoinette, plus Samara Weaving, Minnie Driver, Marton Csokas, Sian Clifford, Alec Newman, Ronke Adekoluejo, and Alex Fitzalan. I am dying to see this!! I love me a good revolutionary film, and this looks like it should be an exhilarating tale of rebellion from the past. Conquering theaters in one month.
Here’s the newest promo trailer (+ a featurette) for Stephen Williams’ Chevalier, direct from YouTube:
