Interviews: Joel Edgerton and David Michôd on the red carpet at THE KING Australian premiere.

Netflix’s THE KING took over Sydney’s The Ritz Cinema for its Australian premiere and brought along its director and co-writer extraordinaire David Michôd as well as actor and co-writer Joel Edgerton.

The film follows Hal [Timothée Chalamet], the heir to the English throne, who is “crowned King Henry V after his tyrannical father dies. Now the young king must navigate palace politics, the war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life.”

We caught up with them on the red carpet to check in with their nerves and excitement for this home-turf event.
