Here's the first official trailer for Giles Alderson's Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot, on YouTube:
The year 463 AD. England is a land divided. A land in need of a legend. King Arthur has been absent for five long years, fighting a war abroad that has stricken his knights, left his throne defenseless and his queen at the mercy of Mordred, his illegitimate son. He must return home fast, facing dark and dangerous threats from all sides. But as he fights to preserve Camelot and all that he holds dear, the toughest conflict will be with himself. Guided by the legendary wizard Merlin, Arthur must strive to become the king that his nation needs. It is the story of a legend, even before the legend was told… Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot is directed by British actor / filmmaker Giles Alderson, directing his second feature film after making The Dare previously. The screenplay is by Simon Cotton and Jonny Grant, from a story by Giles Alderson, Simon Cotton, Jonny Grant. Produced by Jeet Thakrar and Lucinda Rhodes Thakrar. Signature will release Arthur & Merlin: Knights of Camelot direct-to-VOD in the UK on July 13th. Look any good?
