The Man Who Killed Don Quixote UK trailer: Terry Gilliam's passion project arrives early next year

Terry Gilliam faced enough problems getting Don Quixote made, then had to overcome a legal challenge by one a former producer for the film before The Man Who Killed Don Quixote could finally be released officially. It played at Cannes in 2018 and has had a release in the US and now it is the turn of the UK. Reviews have been mixed so far, but with Adam Driver riding high off Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Marriage Story, it makes sense to see if he can bring any residual lift to a film you can imagine will be a hard sell at the box office. Watch the UK trailer for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote above.

The film tells the story of Toby, a cynical advertising director, who finds himself trapped in the outrageous delusions of an old Spanish shoemaker who believes himself to be Don Quixote. In the course of their comic and increasingly surreal adventures, Toby is forced to confront the tragic repercussions of a film he made in his idealistic youth – a film that changed the hopes and dreams of a small Spanish village forever. Can Toby make amends and regain his humanity? Can Don Quixote survive his madness and imminent death? Or will love conquer all?

Gilliam is directing a cast starring Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Stellan Skarsgård and Olga Kurylenko.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote gallops into UK cinemas on January 31, 2020.
