The Princess trailer crowns Joey King as an armor-clad badass in Hulu’s new medieval action movie

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and in 20th Century Studios‘ The Princess trailer, Joey King is ready to go medieval on some unsuspecting men. Hollywood doesn’t make damsels in distress like they used to, and we are all about watching that tired trope getting buried in the past where it belongs.

An action-packed fight to the death set in a fairy tale world, The Princess is directed by Le-Van Kiet (Furie)The film stars Emmy Award nominee Joey King (The ActThe Kissing Booth) as a beautiful, strong-willed princess who refuses to wed the cruel sociopath to whom she is betrothed and is kidnapped and locked in a remote tower of her father’s castle. With her scorned, vindictive suitor intent on taking her father’s throne, the Princess must protect her family and save the kingdom. 

The movie also stars Dominic Cooper (Preacher), Olga Kurylenko (Black Widow), and Veronica Ngo (The Old Guard). The Princess is directed by Le-Van Kiet, written by Ben Lustig & Jake Thornton (Winter’s KnightFinal Fantasy), and produced by Neal H. Moritz (the Fast and Furious franchise), Toby Jaffe (Total Recall), and Derek Kolstad (John Wick), with Joey King and Guy Riedel (Spectral) serving as executive producers.

Rated R for “strong/bloody violence, and some language,” The Princess trailer packs a punch and promises outrageous action for the film’s heroine. The movie also looks like an excellent platform for King to strut her stuff as a physical actress and remind audiences that she can throw down alongside the best that Hollywood offers.

What do you think of The Princess trailer? Will you check the movie out when it premieres on July 1, 2022, as a Hulu Original in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories? Let us know in the comments section below.
