King Arthur Movie

"From nothing comes a King." Warner Bros has unveiled a new promo spot + gritty poster for Guy Ritchie's new take on the King Arthur: Legend of the Sword story, hitting theaters in May this summer (after being delayed from release originally in March). This short TV spot features some very cool POV footage as well as some epic shots from the movie, which actually makes more interested in this than I was after the first trailer. Charlie Hunnam stars as the new King Arthur with a cast including Jude Law, Annabelle Wallis, Katie McGrath, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Tom Wu, as well as Aidan Gillen. I'm still not sure if it will actually be any good, but I'm intrigued by the new footage. Enjoy.

Here's the new promo (+ poster) for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, from YouTube:

You can still watch the first official trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur here, to see more footage from this.

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 May 12th, 2017 this summer.

  • I don't know...My Dud-meter is starting to beeep. The Arthurian legend is not about stunts and explosions. It's about heroism and magic.

      It is guy Ritchie. I expect we will get something similar to his sherlock films. By that I mean staying true to the characters but maybe adding a little too much Hollywood action. I remain hopeful.
      • And that's exactly what bugs me. The Hollywood action extravaganza. It doesn't suit at all the mythology. The color palette is also too cold for such colorful character and universe.

      I'm so lukewarm about this as well. I really liked the Sherlock films but this...doesn't have the same flair. The marketing doesn't seem to know what to do with it...also I blame Charlie Hunnam. LOL

        Yea, I agree with the Charlie Hunnam I find Ritchie's stuff to be a goof and chuckle my way thru them. I don't know about this one though...and then there's that actor....
      • Charlie Hunnam is not that kind of person you wish to take with you on a long journey, He's not that funny. Always trying to look like a James Dean wannabe.
    I wonder the context wherein he air punches many times?

        Ah yes, I here they are best vanquished with the "coast-to-coast" technique.

    And here is my usual comment/gripe regarding Guy Ritchie: Where the hell is The Real RocknRolla?! I'm sure it will never happen, and that is unfortunate.
    • RAW_D
      Wait...wasn't Rockn'Rolla already made? What is this "Real" one you speak of?
      • Xerxexx
        A much promised sequel we all wanted and now we crave!
      • grimjob
        In the credits, a line of text states that all the characters will return in The Real RocknRolla. A sequel that I very much want but sadly will never get. Probably.
        • RAW_D
          Ah! Gotcha.
  • HyperJ
    This has piqued my interest, I am looking forward to this!
  • Doctor Vampire Who?
    Why is the freemason symbol in the bottom right corner of the poster?
    • Inspector71
      I think it's supposed to be a crown.
      • Doctor Vampire Who?
        You think wrong.
        • Inspector71
          Pretty sure it's just a crown.
      • Elbak
        It's also a sideways 'K' superimposed on an 'A', presumably for 'King Arthur'
        • Inspector71
          Could be.
    • Assassin's Creed logo is a freemason symbol.
      • Doctor Vampire Who?
        Never noticed cuz I'm not into it, but good lookin out. This just strikes me as odd because instead of being overtly subliminal its just there like a studio logo on the bottom right.
  • bumboclot
    I wonder why the only good King Arthur movie is the one with the coconut shells and shrubbery. The story is as good as anything that gets adapted these days. Maybe this will be the first really good non-parody version of King Arthur?
