Cinematical: This footage is from the first two weeks of filming, so it’s pretty rough, the soundtrack is temporary, and it was filmed prior to pre-Paul Giamatti being cast as King John. But there’s still an impressive level of carnage on display, and everything remotely sharp or heavy is being wielded in defence of Rochester Castle. There’s no slick choreography, it’s just white-knuckle, balls-to-the wall medieval warfare. They still found room for a few explosions, though. Remember, King John used pig fat to melt the walls, so there was definitely a lot of falling stone during this siege.
Check out the footage below. The movie is slated to be out at some point 2010 but we still don’t know when. Head over to Cinematical for more info.
