‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ Trailer: Guy Ritchie Brings His Dynamic Style To The Classic Tale

23 July 2016 2:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Charlie Hunnam is the chosen one in Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” The first trailer was showcased at Saturday’s Comic-Con celebration, where fans had the chance to see the epic fantasy action/adventure come to life.

Starring Hunnam in the title role, Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the film that is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth. The story traces Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.

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.
