This week, cinegoers were blessed with two trailers of much-awaited historical dramas, both led by Dev Patel. While The Personal History of David Copperfield has already picked up an array of awards since its world premiere, with five British Independent Film Awards, The Green Knight will be a rather bleak take on the Arthurian legend of the same name.

Also from Hollywood, Wes Anderson’s 10th directorial feature The French Dispatch brings an ensemble with all of Anderson-quirks such as colourful palettes, aesthetically well-aligned shots, and eccentric characters in tow.
