Netflix's Cursed drops a whole trailer, fleshing out its magical earth

The first long trailer of Cursed, Netflix's highly anticipated new series, which we will star in Katherine Langford, has been released.

And if you're a Game of Thrones fan, it'll be right up your street.

In the trailer, we see a bloody battle ensue, with Nimue at the centre of it.

So, according to the stories of yore, the Lady of the Lake/Nimue was an enchantress in the Matter of Britain, the body of medieval literature and legend associated with King Arthur.

A teenage sorceress named Nimue (Langford) encounters a young Arthur on his quest to find a powerful and ancient sword.

Indian officials say there were casualties on the Chinese side as well, but there has been no confirmation by Beijing. We, too, have counter-mobilised with additional Army and ITBP troops in the area since May for any eventuality.

The new Netflix Original Series is based on the New York Times bestseller of the same name.

The newest collection to strut out of Netflix's well-stocked vault is a darkish fantasy primarily based on a graphic novel by 300 and Sin City comic e-book legend Frank Miller. She gave Arthur the Excalibur, enchanted Merlin, and raised Lancelot after the death of his father. Cursed is a coming-of-age story whose themes are familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.

Cursed features a cast that also includes Devon Terrell (Barry), Gustaf Skarsgard (Westworld), Peter Mullan (Ozark), Lily Newmark (Sex Education), Shalom Brune-Franklin (The State), Daniel Sharman (Fear the Walking Dead), Sebastian Armesto (Broadchurch), Emily Coates (Flack), Catherine Walker (Versailles) and Billy Jenkins (The Crown).

Miller's work tends to be polarizing, and it's hard to tell where Cursed will land. "We can end them".
