Medieval 2022 is a epic action drama film about the 15th century warlord Jan Žižka who defeated the Teutonic Order and the Holy Roman Empire.
“Only the coronation of a new emperor can restore the rule of law.” IGN has revealed the first trailer for an epic medieval movie called, uh, yeah Medieval. This huge Czech production is directed by a Czech filmmaker named Petr Jákl, and is about an iconic Czech warlord from history, though everything is in English and features an international cast. The film tells the story of 15th-century Czech icon and warlord Jan Zizka, who defeated the armies of the Teutonic Order and the Holy Roman Empire. Jan realizes that the fate of the Empire will be decided by his love for Lady Katherine and that his fate is not in the hands of the Kings, but in the hands of his own people. Ben Foster plays Jan Zizka, with a cast that includes Sophie Lowe, Michael Caine, Til Schweiger, Roland Møller, Matthew Goode, William Moseley, Karel Roden and Werner Daehn. This looks especially bland, even the cinematography looks like it’s trying to replicate every other medieval epic before it. At least Foster looks tough. I will wait for more images.
The Czech production stars Ben Foster, Sophie Lowe, Michael Caine, Til Schweiger, Roland Møller, Matthew Goode, William Moseley, Karel Roden and Werner Daehn.
Inspired by the true story of Jan Žižka, one of the greatest warriors in history. After the death of their reigning emperor, the Holy Roman Empire descends into chaos as feuding brothers King Wenceslaus of the Czech Republic and King Sigismund of Hungary battle for control of the empty throne.
Lord Boresh (Michael Caine) soon hires the bold and righteous mercenary leader Jan Žižka (Ben Foster) to kidnap the powerful Lord Rosenberg’s (Til Schweiger) fiancée, Lady Katherine (Sophie Lowe), to prevent Rosenberg from rising to power along with the corrupt king Sigismund. Jan believes that kings are the right hand of God and must be respected and obeyed, no matter what. When Katherine gets caught up in a dangerous political game between the monarchs, Jan falls in love with her strong spirit and dedication to saving the people.
