King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Trailer

The classic Arthurian legend is reborn as Warner Bros. Pictures and director Guy Ritchie debut the first trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. View trailer below.

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.

There have been many King Arthur moves over the years. Some have romanced the legend and of its mythical fantasies, while other have made it more historical and grounded in reality. Guy Ritchie’s version seems to be a mixture of the two (more or less). It has a fantasy element to it, but makes the character of Arthur a street urchin who becomes a legend after pulling the sword. Its an interesting notion and I do like the movie’s cast members, but I do have mix feelings about this movie. I don’t know what it is. To me, something is off about this movie.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword  opens in theater next year on February 17th, 2017
