Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing 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 »

Did anyone ask for a new King Arthur movie? Whether you did or not, Warner Bros. plans to release King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Guy Ritchie’s visionary take on the classic fable, this spring, and to help whet our appetite before the next trailer, EW has debuted several stills from the film, which you can check out above.

Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with the director where they discussed a number of things about the upcoming film, but one of the most interesting topics came near the end when Ritchie was asked about the long-rumored possibility of a cinematic universe for the Knights of the Round Table. He remained relatively coy on the matter but did seem to suggest with his response, that if this one was a success, then more King Arthur-related films could still be heading our way in the not-so-distant future. "As much as anything, I enjoy the process of filmmaking. »
