He’s the man who pulled the sword from the stone and in 2017 he will return to our cinema screens, King Arthur. The treats keep coming from Comic Con in San Diego and the next in line is Guy Ritchie‘s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword get’s it’s first (UK) Trailer courtesy once again from those kind folks at Warner Bros. UK, check it out…
We may have seen him hundreds of times in many forms since the legend but now Warner Bros. is bringing back England’s mightiest warrior. A gritty retelling of the classic story and Warner Bros. are focusing on building franchise films and if the gossip is true, this will be the first of six films. If you think you know the story of King Arthur, Ritchie promises this will be no King Arthur film you’ve seen before.
Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) is our legendary king, one that’s streetwise, not scared to get into a brawl or two which works well with the ‘street-wise Arthur’. The main focus of the trailer is Arthur pulling the sword from the stone and his right to that sword. However after that we don’t really much else after that. What we do know is Jude Law‘s character(his uncle) slaughtered Arthur’s family, but what actually does he want apart from Royal patronage?
In the trailer things look bat-shit crazy and the fantasy feel comes through with giant Elephants, snakes, lizard eyed,forest sprites,fire breathing monsters and off course War! Guy Ritchie‘s fast quirky style which we’ve seen in Lock,Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Sherlock Holmes. Ritchie’s last film the remake Man From U.N.C.L.E didn’t deliver the return at the box office. So Warner Bros. will be hoping it’s only a blimp and this film will be the start of a future franchise as King Arthur has many stories that must be told.
King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword will be released in UK and Irish cinemas March 24, 2017.Starring alongside Charlie Hunnam, will be Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, Jude Law and Eric Bana.
