As fantasy stories rule the streaming services and cable channels as of late, Medieval heads into the theaters as a feature film starring Ben Foster and Michael Caine.

Its recent red band trailer shows it will not pull any punches in this dark ages lore. There are plenty of blood, gore, and dismemberment of body parts. Combat, back in those times, guarantees certain death.

And supposedly, this vicious middle-age campaign is based on a true story.

The film also stars Sophie Lowe, Til Schweiger, Roland Moller, Matthew Goode, and William Mosely. Petr Jakl directed the film.

Here is the official synopsis:

Inspired by the true story of Jan Zizka, one of the greatest warriors in history. After the death of its reigning emperor, the Holy Roman Empire plummeted 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 Zizka (Ben Foster) is 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 a brave attempt to liberate her, he fights back with a rebel army to battle the corruption, greed, and betrayal rampant amongst those clawing for power. Jan now realizes that the fate of the Empire will be decided by his love for Lady Katherine and that his fate doesn’t lie in the hands of Krugs, but in the hands of his people.
