The Green Knight’s UK Release Pulled Due To COVID-19


It’s been revealed that The Green Knight, which stars Dev Patel, has had its UK release pulled due to COVID-19 restrictions on cinemas.

The movie, which stars Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel, was supposed to be released in UK cinemas on August 6th.

However, thanks to the incredible surge in COVID-19 cases in the UK, the Entertainment Film Distributors have decided to ‘hold’ the release for time being.

After July 19th (dubbed as ‘Freedom Day’ by the incredibly idiotic British government) most COVID-19 restrictions were lifted in the United Kingdom.

Cinemas are currently open and you are not required by law to wear a mask whilst watching films on the big screen.

However, the rising number of cases has worried cinema chains and distributors and they’ve decided it would best not to release the film for now.

The Green Knight is still scheduled for release in the US on July 30th.

Sir Gawain is King Arthur’s headstrong nephew and he embarks on a quest to confront the Knight – a gigantic tree-like creature.

David Lowery wrote and directed the film and he also edited the picture himself.
