Dozens of versions of the King Arthur legend have been brought to the big screen over the years, so what makes King Arthur: Legend of the Sword different? We first heard about the project in January 2014, when Warner Bros. indicated a desire to transform the legend into a film franchise spanning six installments. Director Guy Ritchie came on board, fresh off the success of two movies that reinvented Sherlock Holmes for modern audiences, in the person of the brawling Robert Downey Jr. Production got underway in March 2015 with Charlie Hunnam as Arthur and Jude Law as the primary villain; the cast also included Eric Bana, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, and Djimon Hounsou. Knights of the Round Table, as it was known at the time, was slated for release on July 22, 2016. By the end of 2015...

Warner Bros. has just released a brand new trailer for its upcoming(and oft-delayed) fantasy action/adventure film “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” In Guy Ritchie’s new take on the classic Excalibur tale, Charlie Hunnam plays the leading role of King Arthur. In this new trailer, Arthur is forced to return to fight for what belongs to him, his kingdom, after pulling the sword from the stone — literally.
The story follows King Arthur, who is robbed from his birthright to the throne after his father, King Uther Pendragon, is murdered and his uncle Vortigern (Jude Law) seizes the crown. Turns out, Arthur has endured a very rough upbringing, far away from his kingdom and has no idea who he really is. But after pulling the sword from the stone, »

Warner Bros. have released a brand new King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword trailer ahead of its release in a couple of months time. Charlie Hunnam, who will appear in the excellent The Lost City Of Z before he makes his bow as King Arthur, leads the cast of the film, which also includes Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, and Eric Bana.
Guy Ritchie calls the shots on the new re-telling. Here’s a re-cap of the plot.
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. »

If everything goes to plan, Warner Bros has its eye on a new franchise off the back of this summer’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword. The film, directed by Guy Ritchie, is said to be the first in up to six potential movies. That said, all inevitably hinges on the success of the first film.
King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword arrives in UK cinemas on May 12th, boasting a cast that includes Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen and Eric Bana. This is the movie that David Beckham is said to have a cameo in as well. And a brand new trailer and synopsis have arrived for the movie. So let’s do them in that order, with the trailer first…
Here’s the synopsis… »
Though the fate of The Young Pope remains uncertain, we can distract ourselves with a now regally outfitted Jude Law in this new King Arthur trailer. The film, whose promos have really gone all-out on that bootstrapping thing, stars Charlie Hunnam as the titular king in the making, with Law playing Vortigen, a king in the ousting. That’s because it’s Arthur who was born a king, not (necessarily) Vortigen, who was probably just keeping the castle warm until Arthur returned from obscurity. Wait, scratch that—he totally murdered Arthur’s parents, including his hunky dad Uther Pendragon (Eric Bana). It seems Law just can’t stay too far away from nefarious schemes. But he’ll get his comeuppance in King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, or possibly one of the other movies in Guy Ritchie’s planned series.
King Arthur ascends to the throne on May 12.

"Why does the sword reveal itself now?" Warner Bros has unveiled another new trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the new take on the legendary King Arthur story.

Charlie Hunnam stars as the new King Arthur with a cast including Jude Law, Annabelle Wallis, Katie McGrath, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Tom Wu, as well as Aidan Gillen. I really, really like this new trailer. The music is perfect, the way it's edited is exciting, I am totally sold.

King Arthur is quite the well-worn story. So much so, that you’d imagine there’d no new angle from which to approach it, right? Well, that’s never really stopped Hollywood, has it?

Despite facing delay-after-delay (a normally telling sign the studio doesn’t quite know what to do with a project), there’s a few factors that still have us anticipating King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Guy Ritchie brings more style than the standard directed-by-committee filmmaking that usually plagued tentpoles. Then there’s Charlie Hunnam, coming off of his most impressive role yet in James Gray’s The Lost of City of Z, as well The Young Pope himself, Jude Law.
Ahead of a release in mid-May, Warner Bros. has now revealed a new official trailer, which uses Led Zeppelin’s “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” as a backing track for the action. Ritchie clearly looks like he’s having bombastic fun here, so hopefully the film carries through with that tone. Also starring Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, and Eric Bana, check out the new trailer below.

Guy Ritchie is mostly known for doing smaller, personal and very stylized movies, such as Snatch and RocknRolla. However, he has done some big studio movies, such as both of the Robert Downy Jr., Sherlock Holmes movies, as well as the recent movie adaptation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Now he is dipping his toes into the world of medieval legends with King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and a new trailer for the movie has just arrived online.
Warner Bros. has just released the latest trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword which gives us a new look at this very different take on the classic tale. The movie is said to be the first in a planned six-movie series, assuming this first one does well enough to warrant a sequel. With a reported budget of $102 million, it will have to bring in some pretty serious cash at »

Guy Ritchie is about to deliver his own take on another English legend. Following his dalliance in Late Victorian London with Sherlock Holmes Ritchie and Co. are taking us back even further with Charlie Hunnam taking on the beard and mantle of King Arthur. Today a new trailer gave us a new look at what we’re to expect when the film is released on the 12th of May.
The song of the titular monarch has been sung often, however you can imagine that the director will bring his own sense of style and kinetic frenzy to proceedings. From what we’ve seen so far it has all this and more, with Hunnam providing a particularly grimy king.

From nothing comes a king: Warner Bros. has today premiered the fantastical new trailer for King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, Guy Ritchie’s star-studded medieval reboot that repackages Arthur and the Excalibur myth for a modern-day audience.
Thrusting former Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam into the title role, Legend of the Sword has been pitched as the “extreme” version of the famous English yarn, chronicling Arthur’s trajectory from the streets to the throne. If there’s one major hurdle standing in his way, it’s Jude Law’s (The Young Pope) Vortigern, a power-mongering tyrant who not only murdered Arthur’s parents in cold blood, but also stole made off with his crown. What follows is a rip-roaring quest for revenge, as Hunnam’s fearless leader begins to grapple with the spellbinding powers of Excalibur and, ultimately, stage a revolt against Vortigern and everything he represents.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »

Transmission Films will release David Stratton: A Cinematic Life on March 9, and the new trailer promises a film with a biographical bent, as much about Stratton himself as the films that have inspired him.
When I spoke to him at last year's Australian International Movie Convention, Stratton described the project as "very personal".
"Without wanting to sound too pretentious about it, it.s sort of my journey coming to Australia from England, running the Sydney Film Festival for eighteen years, fighting censorship, [and] being at the Sydney Film Festival just as the Australian New Wave was happening with the Peter Weirs and the Gillian Armstrongs and the Fred Schepisis."

From Nicole Kidman to Hugo Weaving, a who’s who of Australian cinema has assembled to pay tribute to the Australian film critic David Stratton in a new documentary out this March – David Stratton: A Cinematic Life.
George Miller, Gillian Armstrong, Geoffrey Rush, Eric Bana and Jacki Weaver all appear in the film to celebrate the critic’s long and revered career. After more than 50 years in the industry, Stratton is best known in Australia for cohosting the long-running film shows The Movie Show and At The Movies with Margaret Pomeranz but, as the film’s producer, Jo-Anne McGowan, explained to Guardian Australia, his impact reaches far beyond local audiences.
