MEDIEVAL (2022) Preview of epic action drama with teaser trailer



Medieval is a 2022 epic action drama film about 15th-century warlord Jan Žižka who defeated the Teutonic Order and the Holy Roman Empire.

Written and directed by Petr Jákl (Ghoul; Akte Kajínek) from a story by Petr Jakl Sr. and Kevin Bernhardt.

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 history’s greatest warriors. After the death of its reigning emperor, the Holy Roman Empire plummets into chaos while feuding brothers King Wenceslas of Czech and King Sigismund of Hungary battled for control of the empty throne.


Daring and righteous mercenary leader Jan Žižka (Ben Foster) is soon hired by Lord Boresh (Michael Caine) to kidnap the powerful Lord Rosenberg’s (Til Schweiger) fiancée, Lady Katherine (Sophie Lowe), to prevent Rosenberg’s rise to power alongside the corrupt King Sigismund.

Jan believes that kings are the right hand of God and should be respected and obeyed, no matter what. As Katherine becomes caught in a dangerous political game between the monarchs, Jan falls in love with her strong spirit and dedication to saving the people…


In the US, Medieval will be released theatrically in select locations on September 9th and On-demand (VOD) on October 31st, 2022.
