Movie Review – King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

21 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, 2017.

Directed by Guy Ritchie.

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou, Aiden Gillen, Eric Bana, Freddie Fox, Neil Maskell, and Annabelle Wallis.

Synopsis:

Robbed of his birth right, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.

If you don’t like Guy Ritchie’s directing style then you will not enjoy King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. If you are more open to it then it’s an entertaining and inoffensively enjoyable action romp with a great hammy villain performance from Law and a solid leading man turn from Hunnam.

In this incarnation of the King Arthur legend, Arthur (Hunnam) has been raised in a brothel and is an adept street fighter. After escaping »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword review – medieval banter, slapdash mythology

20 May 2017 11:59 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Guy Ritchie’s film is low on originality, but might please devotees of his shtick

Charlie Hunnam is a handsome, hulking blond whose easy charm seems familiar, but implacable. Then I remember where I’ve seen him before: Pacific Rim. And Crimson Peak, and Children of Men, and on the poster for The Lost City of Z. Here, he’s Arthur, a roguish ruffian with a geordie accent and royal blood in his veins, and the ability to pull a sword called Excalibur from – you guessed it – a stone.

But Hunnam is rather good; funny, likable, believably invested in Arthur’s emotional arc. He is not a big enough name to carry a franchise as generic as this one, but there are glimmers of star power that sparkle in the film’s comedic scenes. Elsewhere, Jude Law, always better and more convincing as a slimy villain, camps it up as evil Vortigern, »

The Lovers – Review

The Lovers is a slyly funny comedy in which Debra Winger and Tracy Letts play a long-married couple who are both secretly cheating with a lover. But they find their secret love affairs are unexpectedly complicated by a new sexual attraction – to each other.

Debra Winger and Tracy Letts deliver delightful performances as the long-married, philandering couple. Mary and Michael are on the far side of middle-age and the marriage has been dull routine for sometime. Their current lovers are younger, but not by that much. Mary is wooed by romantic Irish writer Robert (Aidan Gillen, Game Of Thrones’ Littlefinger) with a sweet tenderness but he wants her to commit to him. Michael has his hands full with Lucy (Melora Walters), a fiery dance teacher, who also is tired of waiting »

Review: ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ is Flawed, But Energetic Fantasy

18 May 2017 8:25 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In the middle of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword — writer-director Guy Ritchie’s attempted blend of cockney wit found in the films that made his career with fantasy epics like the Lord of the Rings trilogy — star Charlie Hunnam states, “I’ll talk. I’m happy to talk. But there is no…way…that I am fighting.” Then his piercing blue eyes look at the man in front of him, right before he delivers a punch to their throat. This clear discrepancy between words and action functions in a few ways. First, it is a showcase of Hunnam’s endless charm and great timing, a set of skills that is crucial to the proceedings. Simultaneously, it serves as an apt summary of the film’s tonal balancing act — one that sometimes makes for a disjointed and self-serious bit of cliche, yet at other times creates a firecracker of energy and cool. »

Interview: Director Azazel Jacobs Looks at ‘The Lovers’

17 May 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – There is a familiar Stephen Sondheim song called “Send in the Clowns,” which speaks of the absurdity of relationships, and their ups and downs. Writer/director Azazel Jacobs has kind of made a movie version of that song’s meaning, with the trials of a married couple, cheating on each other, in “The Lovers.”

Michael (Tracy Letts) and Mary (Debra Winger) are in a marriage rut that seems impossible to heal. They both have taken lovers, Michael with Lucy (Melora Walters) and Mary with Robert (Aidan Gillen). However, their lovers are getting impatient, each want the other to end the marriage. Michael and Mary make a promise to themselves and their other mates that they will end the charade after their son (Tyler Ross) comes to visit. But strangely, that secret lights a spark between them again. Send in the clowns, don’t bother they’re here.

Warner Bros. looking at $150 million loss on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

16 May 2017 3:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword found itself struggling at the box office this past weekend, grossing just $15.4 million from its domestic opening, and a further $29.1 million from international markets, including $5 million from China.

According to THR, the Guy Ritchie-directed medieval fantasy is expected to gross no more than $145 million globally. Given that Warner spent $175 million making the film, and many millions more on its marketing campaign, it has been reported that Warner will be looking at a loss in the region of $150 million.

Should the studio take that kind of hit, it would surpass the $125 million loss that Paramount suffered on Monster Trucks, making it the biggest box office bomb of the year to date. Fortunately for Warner Bros., the studio has some big hitters on the way this year in the likes of Wonder Woman, Dunkirk and Justice League, which should help to soften the blow.

Exclusive: King Arthur’s Charlie Hunnam on working with Guy Ritchie and being reunited with Aidan Gillen

16 May 2017 7:12 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

As an audience member, when sitting down to indulge in Guy Ritchie’s fantasy period blockbuster King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, it could only belong to one filmmaker. But what was it like to collaborate with the esteemed British director? We sat down with the lead role Charlie Hunnam to ask whether Ritchie’s distinctive sensibilities as a storyteller were as prominent on the shoot, as they are in the finished product.

Hunnam admits to us, however, it was a role he really had to fight for – describing his unwavering commitment to the part and how he beat five other actors to the role, left with the enviable task of bringing this iconic character to life. He also explains how Ritchie works, and how his own approach is at odds with the director’s – and finally on collaborating with Aidan Gillen, having shared the screen together »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Crushes King Arthur at Box Office in Weekend #2

14 May 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy 2 kicked off the summer movie season in grand fashion last weekend, with an opening weekend of $145 million, far surpassing the $94.3 million take of the original Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This weekend, these intergalactic superheroes took on two new movies in wide release, Warner Bros. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and 20th Century Fox's Snatched, with Lowriders also managing to crack the top 10 in limited release. Still, none of these newcomers could come close to the superhero ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which had no trouble repeating with $63 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that this superhero sequel dropped 57% this weekend, playing in 4,347 theaters for a respectable $14,494 per-screen average. The $200 million budgeted movie has now taken in $246.1 million domestically and $630.5 million worldwide. After just two weekends, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 already quite close to surpassing both the domestic ($333.1 million) and worldwide take ($773.3 million) of its predecessor. »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword tanks at the box office with $14.3 million weekend

14 May 2017 2:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, it looks like any franchise hopes Warner Bros. had for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword are dead in the water, with the Guy Ritchie-directed fantasy adventure suffering a miserable opening weekend in the States with just $14.3 million in box office receipts.

The film, which spent eight years in development, cost the studio a hefty $175 million to produce – including costly reshoots following what Deadline describes as “a train wreck” of an early cut – along with many millions more in marketing.

King Arthur has of course faced some stiff competition, with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 retaining top spot this weekend with an estimated $61.9 million, while the Amy Schumer / Goldie Hawn comedy Snatched also came out on top with $16.5 million.

The movie has also been slammed by critics, with a 27% Rotten Tomatoes score, although it does seem to be going down well with audiences (well, the ones who turned up, »

Film Review: ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ is a Dull, Magicless Bore

12 May 2017 4:29 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Have you ever had such a bad case of déjà vu while watching a film that trying to remember where the familiar elements are from turns into a more enjoyable experience than actually seeing the film itself? If you haven’t, your quest for that kind of film is fulfilled by the incredibly forgettable “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.”

Rating: 1.5/5.0

Is it a long lost relation of the “Lord of the Rings” franchise? Yes, but probably a third cousin judging by the familiar, yet inferior approach. Does it cinematically play out like a typical, fantasy-based video game? You could probably give the audience each a video game controller and they would know what to do with it since more than a few of the climactic sequences have the same execution as a boss-level video game battle. Is the movie actually popular “Lord of the Rings”-based video game »
