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.

I liked that movie just fine

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


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.

Yea I wasn't impressed by him in pacific rim

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


He was terrible! I think that's why I didn't like that one.

grimjob on Jul 23, 2016


I thought he was bad but the script was just as bad so I am willing to take another chance on him.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


Fair enough. I guess I shouldn't ride him so hard, that script was godawful.

grimjob on Jul 23, 2016


I think that's the main problem with the film. Because other than Elbas speech absolutely zero percent of the script was engaging.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


Yeah, besides the obvious appeal of the eye candy that one provided, I was generally pretty bored.

grimjob on Jul 24, 2016


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.

tarek on Jul 24, 2016


That main guy is such a horrible actor!! He ruined Pacific Rim almost as bad as Jesse "Nervous Nellie" Eisenburg ruined Batman vs. Superman!!

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.

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

toonfed on Jul 23, 2016


The elephants sure but remember Merlin? Magic abound yo.

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


I hate Merlin. He owes me money

toonfed on Jul 23, 2016


That bitch

Jon Odishaw on Jul 23, 2016


A Medieval fantasy is incompatible with Ritchie's style. This ain't Lock stock and two smoking barrels.

tarek on Jul 23, 2016


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....

RAW_D on Jul 27, 2016


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.

tarek on Jul 27, 2016


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.

RAW_D on Jul 28, 2016


At least he's more palatable than the Aussie stone Jai courtney.

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...

Steven on Jul 24, 2016


I wouldn't be holding that hilt when this movie sinks like a stone.

97point6 on Jul 24, 2016


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 ...

shiboleth on Jul 24, 2016


I felt like the entire trailer should have been playing Aerosmith's Janie Got A Gun as the background music.

Quanah on Jul 24, 2016


Guy Ritchie never lets me down.

Cyberdine on Jul 25, 2016


This looks really good...and I love Arthorian Legends

Bob on Jul 25, 2016


Question guy: Is it a story of a guy who came from the future? In the opening scene, we see bullets flying...
