Watch the trailer for ‘Braveheart’ follow-up movie ‘Robert the Bruce’

Robert the Bruce will finally be released in the US next month.

The Scottish historical action drama was originally released in the UK last summer.

The hard-hitting movie sees Angus Macfadyen reprise his Braveheart role as the titular warrior and king.

Robert the Bruce covers the turbulent time after William Wallace’s victories depicted in Braveheart.

The cast also includes Jared Harris (The Crown), alongside Zach McGowan, Daniel Portman, Emma Kenney, Melora Walters, Anna Hutchison, Talitha Eliana Bateman, Patrick Fugit, Gabriel Bateman, and Kevin McNally.

Watch the trailer:


The official synopsis reads: “Scotland 1306, Robert the Bruce (Angus Macfadyen) crowns himself King and takes the ambition of Scotland’s freedom as his own. But he cannot overcome England’s power: defeated again and again, his army is scattered and Scotland’s nobility abandons him.

“Hunted, with a price on his head, he finds himself alone and wounded. The cause of freedom seems lost once more. Hidden secretly in a secluded croft of a clan pledged to England, and close to death Robert is nursed back to life by a young widow and her orphaned children.

“His determination to do what is right, regardless of the cost, reinvigorates his passion to rise again. But it’s not revenge he desires. It’s freedom. Now. ”

Robert the Bruce was originally due to arrive in select US cinemas from Friday 24th April, but we’d expect this release to be postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus situation.

Braveheart is available on DVD on Amazon.
