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. The story follows a young King Arthur as Merlin teaches him how to become a powerful leader. Warner Bros. is going to get their first, though, with their powerful medieval fantasy thriller Knights of the Round Table. Shooting has continued in England throughout this past year, and now Entertainment Weekly has our first look at it's leading man.
Charlie Hunnam plays the title monarch in Knights of the Round Table. The former Sons of Anarchy star proudly shows off his massive sword while lounging in, on and around the set of director Guy Ritchie's latest attempt to rebuff an ancient legend. It follows his other reboots Sherlock Holmes, which found much success with Robert Downey Jr. in the lead, and this summer's as yet unproven TV adaptation, »

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, »
Add Matt Bomer to the ranks of the nearly-Super. The Magic Mike Xxl star has said that, like Nicolas Cage, Ashton Kutcher and Jude Law before him, he was once going to play Superman on the big screen.
Speaking on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Bomer said he was chosen to play the superhero by Brett Ratner. The director had been working on a version of the superhero story, scripted by Jj Abrams, that was doing the rounds in 2002.

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, »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Great comedic actor, big action star, and now the leading man in the film with the highest-grossing opening weekend of all-time; is there anything Chris Pratt can’t do? Apparently not, especially after this video in which the Jurassic World star (or as we know and love him here at TVOvermind, Parks and Rec‘s Andy Dweyer) does a British accent on The Graham Norton Show (to promote the film), and it’s actually pretty terrific. And we’re not the only ones who think so; Pratt also got the approval of Norton, Jude Law, and those in the audience. However, the accent that Chris Pratt does isn’t a traditional, London accent, one that American actors attempt to recreate when the play English characters. Instead, he tries his best to capture an Essex accent, inspired by the cast of The Only Way Is Essex (called Towie in England), a »

Paul Feig’s Spy is now in theaters. As I’ve said many times before, I think Spy is great and is an extremely funny movie that’s definitely worth your time and money. The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale, Allison Janney, Peter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. For more on Spy, read Perri’s review or watch the trailers. At the L.A. press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Melissa McCarthy and Jason Statham. They »

David Beckham has landed a role in Guy Ritchie's 'Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur'. The retired soccer star has reportedly signed up for a part in his pal's latest film, a Middle Ages epic starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana and Poppy Delevingne, and will be joining the cast in donning medieval attire. A source shared: ''There's going to be a version of the scene where Excalibur gets drawn from the stone. This is where Beckham factors in.''

Did you know that June 12 every year is Superman Day? We're not sure how this particular day came to be dedicated to the Man of Steel, especially since he seems omnipresent in our lives every day. A pop cultural mainstay since 1938, the Krypton-born hero never seems far away, especially in the movies.
Yet while it seems every boy has dreamed of putting on the red cape and flying, the character has been remarkably hard to cast in movies. For every Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh or Henry Cavill who said yes, many more have said no. Here are 15 potential Kal-El's that never came to be.
"Yo, Lois!" After the success of "Rocky," it's no wonder that "Superman: The Movie" producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind considered Stallone to play the Last Son of Krypton. Reportedly, he was deemed too ethnic for the part, though other sources have said that Marlon Brando »

Directed by Paul Feig.
A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.
For their third collaboration, Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy have inverted the spy action movie genre with a surprisingly entertaining comedy. Following wallflower desk agent Susan (McCarthy) as she goes undercover to find a deadly arms dealer (Byrne); the jokes come thick and fast and those who enjoy a fish out of water comedy will find the film entertaining.
Unlike her previous outings, McCarthy isn’t as brash and in your face as her previous outings and the film is all the better for it. Whilst McCarthy seems to have a marmite effect on people, she is on point and hilarious in this film and many »
