First look at Scott's historical epic.

Ridley Scott made his feature film debut with The Duellists and appears to be returning to similar subject matter at the tail end of his career. The Last Duel tells the story of France's last sanctioned duel in the 14th century.

The cast includes Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer and Ben Affleck.

The Last Duel is in UK/ROI cinemas from October 15th.

Check out the first trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

The historical epic is a cinematic and thought-provoking drama set in the midst of the Hundred Years War that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris is a Norman squire whose intelligence and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in court. When Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God’s hands.
