Internet Reacts To Matt Damon And Ben Affleck’s Absurd Haircuts In Trailer For ‘The Last Duel’, Which They Also Wrote

  • The first trailer for The Last Duel has been released.
  • Matt Damon, Adam Driver, and Ben Affleck star in this 14th century France period piece.
  • As a result of its time period, the hairstyles have turned out to be quite hilarious.

True story: I actually interviewed Matt Damon no more than 24 hours before this trailer for The Last Duel hit the internet. Had I been able to bear witness to its glory prior to our conversation, you bet your ass I would’ve mentioned it, particularly Damon’s medieval mullet. And how could I not, really? Ridley Scott has our dude out here looking like 14th century French Kid Rock.


In 14th-century France, knight Jean de Carrouges and his squire Jacques Le Gris are ordered to fight to the death after Carrouges accuses Le Gris of raping his wife.

Goofy and likely historical hair stylings aside, though, The Last Duel looks pretty excellent from where I’m sitting. Not only does it boast four A-listers — Damon, Adam Driver, Ben Affleck, and Jodie Comer — and not only is the legendary Ridley Scott directing, but Damon and Affleck helped write the script, marking the first time they’ve done so together since winning the Academy Award for Good Will Hunting.

Naturally, while movie fans found themselves understandably excited for The Last Duel, memes and jokes about the fashion choices were immediate and aplenty.

The Last Duel, which stars Matt Damon as Jean de Carrouges, Adam Driver as Jacques Le Gris, Jodie Comer as Marguerite de Carrouges, and Ben Affleck as Count Pierre d’Alençon, is scheduled to hit theaters in the United States on Friday, October 15.

Oh, and keep out for our full interview with Matt Damon, which will be dropping on Monday in both podcast and article form.
