Is it just us or does Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword seem to be getting grittier and grittier with every poster? This new one, featuring Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur, is so gritty that we’re practically grazing our corneas just looking at it.
There’s also a new (and finale) trailer to go with it. Check it out here:
If that’s not enough to get you pumped you can read King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword‘s official, super long synopsis below:
Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.
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.
Starring with Hunnam (FX’s Sons of Anarchy) and Oscar nominee Law (Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley) are Astrid Bergès-Frisbey (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) as Mage; Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond, In America) as Bedivere; Aidan Gillen (HBO’s Game of Thrones) as Goosefat Bill; and Eric Bana (Star Trek) as Arthur’s father, King Uther Pendragon.
Guy Ritchie (The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the Sherlock Holmes films) directed the film from a screenplay is by Joby Harold (Awake) and Guy Ritchie & Lionel Wigram, story by David Dobkin (The Judge) and Joby Harold. The film is produced by Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend), Joby Harold, Tory Tunnell (Awake, Holy Rollers), and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Sherlock Holmes producers Steve Clark-Hall, Guy Ritchie and Lionel Wigram. David Dobkin and Bruce Berman are executive producers.
