King Arthur: Legend of the Sword — Final Trailer


added: Sat, Apr 1st '17

If you like your fantasy tales to have a bit of muscle -- then look no further. British director Guy Ritchie, of the Robert Downey Jr.-starring "Sherlock Holmes" movies, has whipped up an adrenaline-fueled medieval actioner that offers a new take on the King Arthur legend.

And judging by the newly-released final "King Arthur" trailer, Ritchie seemingly has turned the sword-and-sorcery genre into a rollicking thrill ride, complete with bouts of fanciful swordplay and hyper-kinetic action sequences.

In the film, Charlie Hunnam (from FX's "Sons of Anarchy" and "Pacific Rim") plays the title role, a skilled street fighter who was raised in a brothel but later learns of his royal family history: his biological father, King Uther Pendragon (played by Eric Bana), was murdered by Arthur's evil uncle, Vortigern (Jude Law).

But when Arthur pulls a mighty, mystical sword from a stone, he is presented with an opportunity to rightfully reclaim his father's throne from Vortigern. The question is, does Arthur want to become the prophesied hero who will rid the world of evil? Well, if that means he will have to kill Vortigern and avenge his father's death, the answer is yes! Hail to the king, baby!

Co-starring Astrid Berges-Frisbey and Djimon Hounsou, "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" opens May 12th.

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword." Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur's journey from the streets to the throne.

When the child Arthur's father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy ... whether he likes it or not.
