Guy Ritchie returns to cinemas next month with the dashing and well-dressed spy caper "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," but recently the man has been hard at work on his July 2016 film - "Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur".
The first in a proposed series of films that will retell the Arthurian story, Charlie Hunnam takes on the title role of the 6th century king who is said to have defended Britain against Saxon invaders. Today, EW has posted the first official photos related to the film - a featured photo spread with Hunnam sporting his look in the film along with his sword Excalibur.
Ritchie says this version of Arthur is different from previous incarnations: "I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland. The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they're not interesting to watch. »

In the article, Ritchie and Hunnam offer up a few words on how they plan to reinvent the Arthurian legend:
“I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland,” states Ritchie. “The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch. Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in Star Wars because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring.”
“He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,” adds Hunnam. “He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. »

Entertainment Weekly have provided us with our very first look at Sons Of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur in Guy Ritchie’s ‘in-production’ movie of the same name. The film sounds interesting as within the magazine, Hunnam spoke about the iconic character, and how Richie’s version will be different from anything we’ve seen before.
Here’s what he had to say.
“[Arthur is] a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler. He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”
… and here is EW’s cover with Hunnam as the medieval legend plastered across the front of it..
According to the interviews contained in the magazine, Ritchie’s version of the King Arthur legend will feature “giant snakes, massive war elephants, and a »

This past week, Disney announced they are moving forward on a live-action remake of their classic animated adventure The Sword in the Stone.

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.
But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.
So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »

Among the many small pleasures of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival are the trailers featuring recent recipients of the main award, the Crystal Globe For Artistic Contribution to World Cinema — this may be the only award that is easier to say in Czech— including Helen Mirren, Jude Law, Harvey Keitel, Miloš Forman, John Malkovich, Andy Garcia, Jiří Menzel and Czech actress Věra Chytilová. The trailers gently spoof the prizewinner interacting with the physical award itself, a solid glass globe held aloft by a golden female figure. The best of them has the now elderly Chytilová trying to put a smashed globe back together with scotch tape, then eyeing her little coffee-table Frankenstein while blowing her nose loudly. I’m not sure I get the specific joke, but it’s funny anyway. This year’s trailer features last year’s winner, Mel Gibson, and plays on the actor’s reputation for, »
