We’re always trying to track what historical costume movies and TV shows are coming up. We’ve got the fall/winter trailer deluge upon us, so there’s all sorts of eye candy! As always, you can keep an eye on what’s forthcoming on our Upcoming Movies page!
Versailles Season 3
The final season! Looks like nobody ages, and we’re never going to get historically accurate wigs, sigh.
Outlander Season 4
American colonies, here we come! This is the last season to be costume designed by Terry Dresbach.
The Outlaw King
Scotland’s Robert the Bruce. Apparently we get to see Chris Pine’s willy.
At Eternity’s Gate
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2
More 1920s Harry Potter, with more Eddie Redmayne!
Because we need another one? The costumes look like modern WTFery.
Saoirse Ronan as Mary, Margot Robbie as Elizabeth, a whole lot of shitty costumes by Alexandra Byrne. Trystan and I are already plotting a podcast. Expect ranting.
