King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Trailer

"There's an army of you, there's only one of me." Warner Bros has also debuted the trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword at Comic-Con and online, for those waiting to get a glimpse at the latest version of this story. In this upcoming action movie, Charlie Hunnam stars as King Arthur with a cast including Jude Law, Annabelle Wallis, Katie McGrath, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Tom Wu, and Aidan Gillen. This looks unlike any other big screen version of the King Arthur story we've seen before, with Guy Ritchie's signature style and intimate cinematography. There's also some very odd fantastical elements in the final half, let's just hope this actually turns out okay. Take a look.

Here's the first Comic-Con trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, from YouTube:

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Poster

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. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is directed by British filmmaker Guy Ritchie, of Snatch, Revolver, RocknRolla, Sherlock Holmes, A Game of Shadows and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. previously. The screenplay is written by Joby Harold, updated by Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram. Warner Bros will release King Arthur in theaters starting March 24th, 2017 next year.

    I am pretty excited for Hunnam to break good. His time on SONS OF ANARCHY was so enjoyable. This may be the ticket. I was one of the few who enjoyed THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.
    • Jon Odishaw
      I liked that movie just fine
      • Bo
        Yea, I saw Man from Uncle a week or so ago on cable and had a good time with it. I don't think Ritchie is going to hit with this Arthur movie though. Too many negative things about it for me...starting with the lead.
  • grimjob
    As with every Guy Ritchie article, I must first say "For the love of God Almighty, give us The Real RocknRolla!!" Ok, now, I love his style, but this doesn't do anything for me. Visually appealing, but I think I just can't stand Hunnam. Awesome as Jax, but just bugs me everytime I see him elsewhere. Don't know why.
    • Jon Odishaw
      Yea I wasn't impressed by him in pacific rim
      • grimjob
        He was terrible! I think that's why I didn't like that one.
        • Jon Odishaw
          I thought he was bad but the script was just as bad so I am willing to take another chance on him.
          • grimjob
            Fair enough. I guess I shouldn't ride him so hard, that script was godawful.
          • Jon Odishaw
            I think that's the main problem with the film. Because other than Elbas speech absolutely zero percent of the script was engaging.
          • grimjob
            Yeah, besides the obvious appeal of the eye candy that one provided, I was generally pretty bored.
      • TK
        Yeah same. He was awesome in Sons and he is playing a character in his native accent so that could be a plus.
      • Blame first Pacific Rim awful script.
    • Bo
      Yea, I feel the same way about Hunnam. But then again, I felt that way about his TV thing too and just couldn't watch that show. Such posing and pretense. I didn't buy any of it for a second and now he bugs me too. I shouldn't let him...really, I shouldn' It's too bad because I'm generally amused by Ritchie's movies and have always liked the Arthur story. We'll see though. Cheers.
  • CyraNOSE
    That main guy is such a horrible actor!! He ruined Pacific Rim almost as bad as Jesse "Nervous Nellie" Eisenburg ruined Batman vs. Superman!!
  • Payne by name
    I didn't fancy the look of UNCLE and Rock n rolla was poor but the Sherlocks and Ritchie's other films were good. As for Hunnam, he was shocking in Green Street and in Pacific Rim though both films are huge guilty pleasures despite their numerous failings. This looks like one I'd be keen to see in the cinema.
    • Man from UNCLE was a piece of crap.
  • toonfed
    I must say that i love Guy Ritchie's style. But, i kinda feel dissapointed when i start to see fireball and magic and giant elephants... i just though this could be a different kind of movie
    • Jon Odishaw
      The elephants sure but remember Merlin? Magic abound yo.
      • toonfed
        I hate Merlin. He owes me money
        • Jon Odishaw
          That bitch
  • A Medieval fantasy is incompatible with Ritchie's style. This ain't Lock stock and two smoking barrels.
    • RAW_D
      It bothers me too, but it could be the trailer. I think it's weak. I dig Guy Ritchie though, and I have mad respect for his Sherlock Holmes movies. They were REALLY cool, so I think another cut of the trailer could do it more justice. However, he's not infallible, case-in-point: Rock N' Rolla....
      • I loved Snatch and Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels. The first Holmes benefited of his style and the charisma of RDJ. I didn't hate the second one, it was quite entertaining, but quite forgettable to be honest. As for this trailer, I am afraid this is what we will get: a cranked Excalibur where people will speak cockney and act like street gangs.
        • RAW_D
          I agree with you on Snatch and LSTSB. And the second Holmes made it for me with the running through the woods scene and being fired upon by cannonballs and rifles. One of the coolest "chase" scenes of recent memory. I agree his style and this story seem like an odd mix, but I feel like he's proven himself before with the Holmes series. But Charlie Hunnam is not my favorite choice for the leading role. He has as much charisma as a rock.
          • At least he's more palatable than the Aussie stone Jai courtney.
          • RAW_D
  • Steven
    Some what disappointed. I was hoping for something without to many fantasy elements, but this looks a poor retelling to be honest. I look forward to Gemmell's books being done one day...
  • 97point6
    I wouldn't be holding that hilt when this movie sinks like a stone.
  • shiboleth
    To me, it looks somehow confusing with too much fantasy stuff. But then again, let's hope it won't get bad as Sherlock Holmes did. At least, second installment was really atrocious ...
  • I felt like the entire trailer should have been playing Aerosmith's Janie Got A Gun as the background music.
  • Cyberdine
    Guy Ritchie never lets me down.
  • Bob
    This looks really good...and I love Arthorian Legends
  • Question guy: Is it a story of a guy who came from the future? In the opening scene, we see bullets flying...
