Watch the trailer for Jodie Comer’s latest movie, the Ridley Scott epic, The Last Duel

21/07/2021

Jodie Comer refuses to be silenced in the trailer for Sir Ridley Scott’s eagerly awaited historical epic The Last Duel.

The Liverpool-born actress, 28, stars as a noblewoman in 14th century France who alleges she was raped by her husband’s best friend.

Her husband, the knight Jean de Carrouges played by Matt Damon, then challenges Adam Driver’s alleged attacker to what was the last legally sanctioned duel in France.

“I was a good wife and then was judged and shamed by my country,” Comer says in the trailer. “I say before all of you – I spoke the truth.”

Driver’s character claims the allegation is false, while Comer is told “the truth does not matter – there is only the power of man”.

Threatened with being burned alive for false testimony, Comer’s Marguerite de Carrouges insists: “I will not be silent.”

 

Ben Affleck, who wrote the screenplay alongside Damon and Nicole Holofcener, stars in a supporting role and appears in the trailer with a blonde buzzcut.

The Last Duel was originally set to be released in December last year before the pandemic upended the Hollywood release calendar.
