“King Arthur Legend of the Sword”, This Monday, Warner Bros. Pictures unveiled the new trailer for "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword," a movie that will hit movie theaters in mid-May Of the great Guy Ritchie this story known all over the world. The advance lasts just over two minutes and serves to know a bit the similarities and differences with the original story whose reversion fell into the hands of Joby Harold, Lionel Wigram and the director..
The official synopsis indicates that when little Arturo's father is killed, Vortigern, the boy's uncle, seizes the crown. Stripped of his birthright and unaware of who he really is, he survives as he can in the difficult alleys of the city. However, once he removes the sword from the stone, his life takes a turn and is forced to recognize his true legacy ... like it or not.
Charlie Hunnam (King Arthur) is the protagonist of the film. Alongside him are Jude Law (Vortigern) and Katie McGrath (Elsa), Annabelle Wallis, Aidan Gillen, Tom Wu, Djimon Hounsou, Eric Bana, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Eline Powell, Hermione Corfield, Mikael Persbrandt, Kamil Lemieszewski and among Others, David Beckham.
Today, Warner Brothers released the official King Arthur: Legend of the Sword trailer, directed by Guy Ritchie (the same one that brought us Sherlock Holmes in 2009) and where we can see Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur , Along with Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou, Eric Bana, among other actors. The advance shows a young Arthur taking the sword of the stone, thus demonstrating the royal lineage he possesses.
It's been seven months since we saw a trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and this new breakthrough is so ridiculous that I still do not know if it works or if it's a complete nonsense. If you're following Guy Ritchie's filmography, you'll probably accept that it's his style, but if you're not used to it, this is probably too absurd.
#3 A great release date: March 23, 2017
The plot follows a young Arturo before and after taking charge of the Excalibur sword, having to join a much larger struggle than he imagined, which encounters supernatural and magical forces he has to learn to control. With the lead of Charlie Hunnam, this proposal follows the accelerated and pure action that Ritchie also gave Sherlock Holmes in his reappearance on the big screen, only this version, adding the supernatural elements of the legend, feels even more Palomitera and overloaded.
At first, I do not feel completely attracted to this show that feels like a concoction, but maybe it's just the trailer. A filmmaker like Ritchie may not be easy to sell.
King Arthur is a fresh take on the classic Excalibur tale, tracing Arthur’s (Hunnam) journey from the streets to the throne. When his father is murdered, his uncle, Vortigern (Jude Law), 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. Eric Bana, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou and Aidan Gillen also co-star.
Ritchie co-write the script with Joby Harold (Awake) and Lionel Wigram from a story by David Dobkin (The Judge) and Harold. The film is produced by Ritchie, Akiva Goldsman, Harold, Tory Tunnell, Steve Clark-Hall and Wigram. David Dobkin and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers. Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute King Arthur in North America, with Village Roadshow Pictures releasing it in select territories.
The Sons of Anarchy alum was last seen in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak and his next film, The Lost City of Z, was just screened at the Berlin Film Festival. Hunnam also is set to star in Papillon, a remake of the 1973 crime drama.
