New Official Trailer for Guy Ritchie's 'King Arthur' with Charlie Hunnam
"Why does the sword reveal itself now?" Warner Bros has unveiled another new trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the new take on the legendary King Arthur story. As we know from the previous trailer, Ritchie's style stands out in particular, making this look a bit more unique than other versions of this story. 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 really, really like this new trailer. The music is perfect, the way it's edited is exciting, I am totally sold. I don't know if it will be good, but this trailer definitely gets me hyped to see this.
Here's the second official trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, from YouTube:
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.

This film is hardly on my radar but a second trailer has never won me over faster than this one. Partly because I love Led zep and partly because this trailer is next level cool.

They could just make a music video. Why bother with film?

Hey, Guy. The Real RockRolla. Get on it. Please?

Now THIS trailer looks like a Guy Ritchie movie! Those quick cuts and the pacing with Led Zepplin definitely peaks my interest more than the previous trailers. Still, Charlie Hunnam with his slicked back hipster hair...ugh...NOT MY KING ARTHUR! /rant

The music bugs me as well. Zeppelin are great, but not for a medieval universe. Hopefully this is just a fancy move to make the trailer look and sound original.

Amazing the difference editing can do with a trailer.

Humm...wait and see. Still not convinced.

Oh my gosh would you please stop casting this Charlie Hunnam or whatever, he ruins everything.

I would be more interested if they weren't using modern expressions like "what all the fuss is about".

It looks cheesy and not my cup of tea. And can someone please tell me why Ritchie chose this story? It's done to many times...
