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 »
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.

The upcoming noir slasher film Carnival is about a knife-throwing artist performing at a traveling circus. But the barnstorming blade buff is not the villain, he is the hunter. In the tradition of Tod Browning’s Freaks, Alejandro Jodorowsky's Santa Sangre, Hammer’s Vampire Circus and Halloween perennial Carnival Of Souls, Carnival will be a three-ringed affair.
Carnival will be directed by Robert Stromberg, the Oscar-winning production designer who made Maleficent (2014) with Angelina Jolie as the sympathetic, malicious witch. Stromberg was the first production designer to ever win back-to- back Oscars, for Avatar and Alice In Wonderland. He turned the lonely journey of astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) from Ridley Scott’s The Martian into The Martian: Vr Experience, which was released at Sundance last year. Stromberg also directed the pilot Dawn for Hulu and MGM. »
The project, written by Matias Caruso, centers on a knife-throwing master in a traveling circus, who uses his deadly skills to avenge the brutal murder of his sister. In hunting down the assailant, he enlists the help of the uniquely talented circus performers.
Stromberg made his directorial debut on “Maleficent,” which grossed more than $750 million worldwide. He won Academy Awards for his work as a production designer on “Avatar” and “Alice in Wonderland,” marking the first time a production designer has ever won back-to- back Oscars.
Stromberg also directed the virtual reality experience for “The Martian,” which was released at Sundance last year, and directed the pilot “Dawn” for Hulu and MGM.
