“Braveheart” is a film memorable for its battlefield scenes, with Scottish and British armies clashing in crowded, bloody battle. “Gladiator” is focused more on small groups and one-on-one combat inside a colosseum for sports spectators. “The Last of the Mohicans” also culminates in a series of individual confrontations, set to the vibrant tunes of “Promentory,” when the characters run along a cliff and confront each other.
Each movie is reminiscent of a specific battle scene and that’s what “The Woman King” is also striving for as General Nanisca trains the Agojie and leads them into battle against the European invaders. Europe. In her interview with A.frame, Prince-Bythewood – whose last film was “The Old Guard” starring Charlize Theron – cited the “battle of Oyo” in “The Woman King” as The movie’s most challenging scene, and the one in which she and her. The cast and crew spent some time working on the production. It seems Prince-Bythewood is preparing her crew the same way General Nanisca prepares her soldiers:
“That battle was absolutely something that came out at the end of the schedule, but I put it there so the actors had enough time to practice for those scenes. But I also needed our crew to be in a place where all of them were. we were all very comfortable with each other working on that level before we started working on it, because it was very difficult and we had 11 days to shoot it. the plane in ‘The Old Guard’, I shot over five days and it was two people in one tube It was an epic battle! But we had a plan. We stuck to that plan. and we finished it.”
“The Woman King” is in theaters.
